This weekend was freaking HOT. Saturday was bearable - it was in the 80s but still had a breeze. I got up earlish and started some work on my front garden. I'm not a major gardener by any stretch of the imagination (I'm all about bulbs - iris, daffodils, lilies and the super easy day lily)- but when we bought this house, they had just 'professionally' landscaped it. Thing is - many of the shrubs grow so fast - they get completely out of control. And out come my electric hedge trimmers.
You may now call me Cece the Destroyer.
Seriously, I'm not that bad - but I did do some major hacking, which then involved major clean up. Which was fine for a few hours. Then we had to go pack it up and watch Aaron's team's last soccer game, and I wasn't in the mood to do anything more. So I woke up Sunday - and at 9 AM went to finish up. I made it about 30 minutes before I retreated into the house for AC. At which point I decided to do some knitting for this baby! It's super cute- and I will take a picture to show all later.
The rest of Sunday we went to the end of the season soccer pool party - in which I was the only woman to go in the pool with all the boys (9 - 11 year olds) and held my own in the super soaker battle (plus pushed Coach Aaron in the pool to the delight of all the kids).
Random pregnancy things:
- I can really no longer sleep on my belly. But sleeping on my side makes my shoulder fall asleep. So, along with getting up to pee every few hours, I'm also getting up to shift position. I guess this is training for when the baby comes?
- I'm starting to wake up at 2 in the morning, not for position change or to pee, but because I'm hungry. I've started bringing a peanut butter sandwich with me to bed.
- I have officially starting wearing my maternity pants - and they are AWESOME. I'm SO comfortable. I only have 2 pairs... so I guess I'm going to need to go shopping.
- You know that 'baby in a bubble' pregnancy ticker on the sidebar of my blog? You can click it to change the 'x day to go' to other options. It makes me feel better to see that I'm '14 weeks and 3 days' rather than '179 days to go'.
