honest to blog...

I will begin this with something positive. Josh bought me Juno for my birthday! A couple of nights ago he went out to find me milk, chocolate, and cough drops (two because I was craving, and one because of allergies). When he came back he said, "The Swiss Cake Rolls were more expensive than usual." I looked at the receipt and the total was way high. Then I looked at the price of the sweets but they weren't any higher than normal. Then I noticed that there in the middle was Juno! I was very excited. Today was the first day that Josh and I had a chance to sit down and watch it. I love, love, love that movie! It is so beautiful and honest. The lines are a kick in the pants as well... I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already.

Pregnancy movies are a funny thing to watch while you are pregnant. (True story... no joke...)

Now for the less positive stuff: my skin is dry, my hips and back are sore, my feet are starting to ache, my boobs are ridiculously big (almost to the annoying point) and sore, I'm super emotional, I'm getting a preview of menopause with all of the hot flashes I have been getting, the baby doesn't know it is supposed to sleep when mommy is tired and ready for bed or a nap, insomnia has once again set in, and there are a myriad of other pregnancy related issues that keep popping up that nobody wants to hear about I'm sure. I feel so blessed to have a healthy baby growing inside of me and that I am well and able to help nourish it and give it what it needs. However, I had almost forgotten that being pregnant is not easy and that I do not personally posses the patience that is necessary to make it through it with my sanity intact. I need prayer. Prayer for energy and patience. I am currently very short on both. I feel selfish complaining about these little ailments when I know that things could be much worse, but I also needed to vent a little.

I love that movie too! I think I'll buy it eventually. Are you going to yell "Thundercats are go!" when your water breaks?
