>Today is a big day. Instead of getting up, brushing my teeth, eating a box of soda crackers and an apple and going back to bed, I woke up feeling…refreshed? Well, close to. Enough that I was able to leave the house and haul my cookies to Starbucks for the first time in two weeks. Part of this new found energy is because of the new bed that Andrew got us. See, Andrew and I have spent our entire relationship sleeping on a skinny futon mattress on the floor. Which actually hasn’t been so bad – I can sleep pretty much anywhere. But as soon as I got pregnant, the mattress became more and more uncomfortable. Then it occurred to me that I wasn’t going to be able to get in and out of bed soon….a problem. Particularly since I now get up at least once a night to use the loo and waking up Andrew to help me doesn’t sound appealing (he’s a great guy but DO NOT wake him up). So we went to Ikea on the weekend and bought a mattress AND funky frame. Pleasant sleep times ensued. But the mattress can’t be the only cause of my new found refreshed feeling. I’m hoping that the baby is starting to cut me some slack as I head into the final few weeks of my first trimester. Fingers crossed.
Anyways, so yes, I left the house. I went to Starbucks (a five second walk from our place), got a cup of tea and checked my email (our internet is down). THEN I went to the school to take out a couple of library books and pay the mad amount of library fees I had collected from when I went to Scotland and forgot to bring my books back first. THEN I made lunch (read: heated up leftovers). THEN I came back to Starbucks for a second cuppa. A very very busy day for me. PLUS I plan to go home after this and make a real dinner (this plan might fall through if the smell of cooking food gets me down…I cannot STAND the smell of cooking vegetables these days). Andrew is going to be in shock when he comes home. I think he’s grown accustomed to finding me curled up in bed watching a bad movie and nibbling crackers. Well no more! At least, not today!!
Maybe now more interesting things will happen that I can post about. Here’s hoping.
