Saturday Sleep

I think Friday really took it out of me.  Not that housing a little human inside doesn't already take it out of me, but I think the marathon of a day yesterday really did me in.

Husband and I had these great plans of getting up a bit earlier to wash the cars while they are still in the shade and then he would mow the grass.  I had a hard time getting out of bed.  By the time I did, my sweet husband was already starting on the yard!  So, I cleaned up the house and bit.  After he got cleaned up we made breakfast.  YUM.... benedict!

Not long after breakfast I was desperate for more sleep.  Off to bed with me!  I slept about an hour and a half.  I woke up hungry so I munched on a couple of bagels.

A couple hours after that... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Around 4:45 PM my loving husband woke me up and reminded me that I may not sleep well tonight if I didn't get up again soon.  I protested slightly but got up just the same.  We had a "date night" at home where Matt brought in food from one of my favorite places here (I had the YUMMY Philly) and we watched a pretty lame movie (RV with Robin Williams.  I am glad we didn't invest anything in seeing this flick.)

Around 9:30 or 10:00 I was back in bed and slept oh so soundly until Sunday morning.

The moral of the story.... no marathon days like that when one is preggo!


  1. Hahaha. Yeah RV was pretty awful. Any reason you're calling your man husband now instead of by his name?

  2. Haha, seriously! Abbie was SO tired her whole first trimester, but I think that's God's way of telling you to sloooow down. You won't be able to go as fast as you did before. Forget eating for two . . . how about sleeping for two? Or maybe both :)

  3. Fantastic! The kind of day I never quite got to (though I came close) during my pregnancy - and think of as a perfect miracle these days when I don't sleep at all. Never. As in, not ever.
