Pour Your Heart Out - Fire in the hole! (or the back of my throat!)
Shell over at Things I Can't Say hosts - Pour Your Heart Out. It is a place to just get whatever is weighing on your heart out. Please be kind to all of the posters.
I have been a really shitty (pardon my french!) blogging friend lately. I think I commented on about 10 blogs in the past three days. I have 3 baskets of clean laundry sitting waiting to be folded. There is a sink full of dishes still waiting to be washed. I stripped the bed and haven't put clean sheets on it yet. Can you see what I am getting at here?
I really want to be able to do all of these things. I'm really not a lazy person most of the time. Unfortunately for me though one of the biggie side effects of the second trimester has kicked in with a vengeance. Before Jellybean I had never in my life had heartburn or indigestion. I'm not kidding you. I actually had to ask Joey what it was when I first felt it to verify if that was what I had. For the past week I have barely slept at night thanks to it. Before you ask - yes I have attempted to identify what triggers it... Pretty much any food or drink - really narrows the possibilities of eliminating it down. I am currently sitting straight up which is supposed to help it and I can feel the back of my throat burning. For those of you with GERD - my heart goes out to you. I could never deal with this on a daily basis my whole life. I would go certifiably insane.
So thanks to indigestion I am also exhausted like you wouldn't believe. My greatest accomplishment this week was getting to the grocery store - where I stocked up on a ton of microwaveable meals because there is no way I can make Joey his lunches right now. I have also managed to walk the dog and feed the pets. THAT IS IT! I wish I could bitch and moan about Joey not helping me out but he has been working every night after his real job in order to earn us some desperately needed extra money. I can't argue with that. I honestly have no idea what I have been getting accomplished at work this week. I know I am getting stuff done but even there I feel so incredibly unproductive. Being away over the weekend really messed my schedule up since as a general rule I have more energy in the mornings and that is when I usually get my chores done. Hopefully, Saturday I'll get caught up on everything and get back to my usual blogging, commenting, somewhat energetic self.
Til then - bear with me. Oh and send some Tums!
