week 31- in a hazy fog

Literally, though, it was a very foggy day as I was working on the east side. :)

Figuratively… these past 2 weeks… yikes.

My grandmother passed away. I was not very close to her and had said my good-byes the last time I was in Texas/Mexico, so I wasn't particularly grief-stricken. But I was sad for my mom and my aunts and uncles, so I mourned with them.

Then I fell. Scraped up and bruised my knees and my right ankle swelled nice and big. I felt so useless/helpless for 2 days, and after that, I was more mobile but stayed off my feet as much as I could, which really puts a damper on my daily work duties and activities. Not to mention on chores… my house hasn't been this dirty since… ever.

And finally, I got some really bad news at work. The next 30 days or so are going to be super stressful and who knows what will come after that. I am trusting and praying, so I am at peace with what God has in store for me in the long run, but for the time being, it's very difficult to keep from making myself sick with anxiety.

I know none of that emotional stress is good for baby girl, especially throwing on top of everything that I'm anemic now and can't make myself eat full meals very often because I just feel TOO stuffed afterwards. I've also had a couple of nights of mild heartburn; not bad, but bad enough to wake me up and not let me go back to sleep. I'm also getting way too emotionally involved in current events and politics, dude. I can't help it…

Braxton-Hicks contractions are in full swing.

Caleb refuses to accept that I can't carry him very much anymore, or that I can't play rough, or that he can't use my belly as an arm rest when he's sitting on my lap because those little elbow jabs hurt!

I love feeling baby girl move around. Especially if it's the middle of the night and I can't sleep and I feel all alone… she stretches out and reminds me she's right there :)
