I have three weeks left in my pregnancy. So, I have been slowing down on everything. We have a whole new upstairs thanks to the hard work of my husband; new floors, new painted walls and recycled floating shelves. I began organizing things last week with my mother-in-law. I still can find a number of things we still need to do and know. But for now, my body wants a lot of rest. This puts a major halt on Camp Nanowrimo and the 30 day photo project*. Getting the floors and wash done are my major successes these days.
Today for a little exercise I went for a walk to return an overdue book to our local library. By the time I got back I was exhausted. I think it’s the pregnancy, of course, but also we have been suffering under some humidity for the last two days. It’s a little strange to think I could run 9 Kilometers this time last year and now I can’t walk more than a fraction of it. I have enjoyed sharing my body with a new little person but I do miss being in good condition. That feeling you can do anything kinda fades when you can’t climb a set of stairs without huffing and puffing.
*As for the 30 day photo contest, I realize now what makes it easy. Having a smart phone. You always have it on hand and its a simple button push. In another day or so I will get my very first one. We felt it a “smart” idea with having a new baby to have an easy way to take pictures! Also, I think I would like to make a different list of objects as I struggled to find some of the images the original author intended.
