Well, a year ago, I wasn't growing a human. I should cut myself some slack based on this, but I keep thinking, "With all three of my other pregnancies, I was either in school, working, or both, and I didn't have the choice to be lazy." Maybe lazy isn't the right word - maybe it's just succumbing to nature. It's giving in to the naps when I have a chance. It's getting out of the house for a change of scenery instead of pouring myself into some sort of chore. It's sitting on the couch with a hot tea and Sarah, watching and singing along with Sesame Street or Bubble Guppies, just because I can.
Well I've done the "succumbing" thing for long enough. While I still have a few weeks left in my second trimester, I'm going to kick it up a notch. I'm going to take on some projects, have some holiday fun, make some crafts, bake a lot of goodies, and maybe just maybe I'll even do a little exercising. I have a lot to live up to from last year:
I'm totally getting the list paper out. But this year, it's not to distract me from depression or so I can feel worthwhile. This year, it's because I want to. Bring it, holiday season. This year, I'm going to enjoy you to the fullest!
