I'm bored. At over 36 weeks pregnant, my days aren't too exciting right now. When Ryan comes home and asks what we did each day my answers are getting more and more dull: "we went to the post office","we went grocery shopping", "I vacuumed", etc. And it's usually just ONE of those activities per day. Occasionally I'll take Brady over to Disneyland for a few hours, but I can't stay long because my back starts to hurt from walking around, pushing the stroller, and holding Brady in lines for too long. We spend a lot of time at home doing nothing...and by "nothing" I mean watching Curious George, which I hate to admit :/
I often find myself wishing these days away...wishing I could just fast forward a few weeks...and then a few months to more exciting times. With the baby and a job transfer on the horizon, it's hard to stop and enjoy these seemingly monotonous days. But I'm trying. Sometimes it's easy - Ryan has some perks by working at Toyota and we've had the chance to go to a concert and the Symphony with some friends recently. I've loved getting out and doing something different. I've also had a few opportunities to get out and spend time with girlfriends and I've so enjoyed some adult/girl time. But I'm also trying to enjoy the more routine things, knowing full well that our "routine" will be vastly different in a few weeks. Going out with TWO kids is going to be much more challenging/stressful, so I'm trying to savor my one on one time with Brady...lunch dates, park time, errands, etc. while I can...temper tantrums and all.
If memory serves, my days were NEVER more monotonous than when I had a newborn...so I hate to be bored and complain already...because even after the baby comes, life probably won't get too much more thrilling for a few months...but at least I'll have Christmas to distract me :)
