I’ve heard about this phenomenon, but it’s hitting me like a ton of bricks lately. I feel like my head is in a dense fog and it’s taking me so much more time than usual to complete simple tasks. Sure my belly is pulling and a bit achy, my legs get a little tired and I’m sleepy quite often, but it’s my brain that is slowing me down! I feel like I have a major case of ADD and it’s driving me crazy…
unless people want to talk about the baby. Then I can mentally keep up. Luckily mom and dad were in town this past weekend and didn’t mind all my baby blabber!
Next time I see them, I’ll be introducing them to their first grandchild… unreal!!
We also helped throw an engagement fiesta this weekend for some good friends that are getting married in October! On the way to the party, Baby D stayed curled up on my right side. Isn’t it funny looking?!
The fiesta was a blast! I let Hubbs take over appetizer duty (does that tell you how out of it I’ve been or what?!), but luckily his cheese and sausage platter was a hit.
I promise not to be all baby talk from here on out, but I just had to be honest with you about what a struggle it’s becoming to stay focused. I’m fighting through it though, and am even excited that today begins our new monthly budget! It took me an embarrassingly long time to make our grocery list yesterday.
First I took inventory of what we had in the freezer, pantry and in my CSA…
pretty well stocked up on bulk grains!
…but my beans are dwindling a bit.
Then I planned out our dinners for the week, with lunch and breakfast options, too. And used that info to scribble down what I needed to pick up at the store.
Am I the only one who abbreviates cheese to ‘chz’ on a regular basis?
It’s definitely shorter than my usual list and I’m excited to see how the new budget works out in lowering our monthly expenses. Like I’ve said before, I’m a huge nerd and get really motivated when I get to start a new month with a freshly outlined budget. I’ll keep you posted on the actual amount of grocery money spent during the month.
I’ll slow my ramblings now, but first I must send a special birthday shout out to my Grandma Betty! 91 years old and still as beautiful and spunky as ever.
Love you Grandma Betty!
And as a final note, I want to ask your help.
I’d really love to hear some blog topics that interest you guys. I’m compiling a list of topics I’ve been excited to write about and recipes I’ve been dying to try, so that I’ll have a couple blogs saved up for when Baby D arrives. I’d really love to hear your feedback on topics that interest you, so let me know!
Recipes? How-to Guides? Metabolism?
Leave a comment and let me know so I don’t continue to ramble like I did today! 🙂
