Hello, New Life
I hurried home today to get all my homework done so Cory and I could actually spend some time together tonight without one of us being in front of a computer screen. Anyway, I came home and regardless of the raging pregnancy hunger that always makes me stop off at a fast food restaurant after work, I made dinner for the first time in weeks. I sat down while it cooked and began to read my chapters for my quiz that was due. Despite my best efforts, I could NOT get warm. I had a space heater going in front of me, a very large fleece blanket doubled over covering me, I had a fuzzy vest on with the hood pulled tightly over my head, and I avoided drinking water to keep my core from getting colder. Then the food was ready and I ate it about as daintily as the T-Rex on Jurassic Park eats that goat, and resumed life inside my cocoon to get warm. With a full tummy and the white noise of the space heater coupled with the fact that my energy level matches that of a q-tip, I fell asleep mid-read, sitting upright, for the first time that I can ever remember. Even when I was little I struggled falling asleep sitting up on long car rides. Thank heavens someone sent me a text message and pulled me from my slumber. Who knows how long I could have slept like that. Megan, welcome to pregnancy life. I thank my lucky stars I'm not doing school next semester. I want to say only 7 more months of this, but thing won't really improve with a newborn. And let's face it, pregnant or not, I've always been a ravenous beast with food. That'll remain forever.
