It's taking its toll...

This really has been a great pregnancy. I've had lots of energy, hardly any sickness, low weight gain... But lately it's really starting to take its toll! My energy is winding down -- or dwindling fast when I do have it. Taking care of a house, husband, and two kids is almost getting to be too much for me. Most the time I can only look at what needs to be done, wishing I could just get up and do it. I do one task then have to sit and rest. It's so frustrating! Today is a day I have a lot to catch up on and NO energy to get it done. I keep getting short of breath and feel like I'm going to fall asleep standing up! It could partially be due to the Benadryl I took last night for my eye... Yes, that stuff really knocks me out! I'll keep going somehow, because life (and my kids) doesn't stop. :)

Major accomplishment for the day: Cutting my toenails. You know you're impressed. :P

Yeah I know it's an accomplishment...

I gave my wife a gift certificate to a day spa to get a pedicure and stuff because I knew she couldn't do it herself...

Wouldn't it be great if they could bottle that energy that 2 year olds have and sell it for us moms who really need it?

I hope you get the energy and motivation to do all you need to get done. I'll send you some "2 yr old fairy dust" from my little monster, if you like.
