I find myself in a morose mood today. Speck has been brutal the last few days. I don’t know if it’s because I’m entering a new and even more unpleasant part of my pregnancy, or because I also happen to be sick. Thus turning what had been a seriously nauseous condition into something so bad that I now have an intimate knowledge of each and every toilet in the house. (“I promise never to have salad again for the rest of my life, just don’t do that to me anymore!!”)
I am so tired and daily naps are an absolute necessity at this point, but that means that every single one of my waking minutes are punctuated with screaming, crying and demands on every side. I call people during the day because I need to have at least ONE conversation with a grown up, but all I get are answering machines. Poor Matt, he has to deal with me calling every couple hours just to hear the sound of his voice.
I have a compost heap in the middle of my living room. It used to be a couch. After washing the cushions it never takes longer than 3 hours to spill or grind some food that wasn’t allowed to be in there in the first place. The laundry is getting done one load at a time, but the process is somewhat unpleasant seeing as every other load contains a freshly peed on blanket. Courtesy of Miss Emma. My family has had to forage for dinner every night this week.
Also, weird of weird. Last night was the second time in a week where I was awakened in the middle of the night by the sound of heavy breathing outside our window. Not so much heavy breathing as a really load exhale every 5 seconds or so. We think it’s some sort of animal. Matt thought at first it was a dying goose or turkey, but now he thinks it some sort of mating call. Whether the think is dying or trying to get lucky, I’d rather it not do it right outside my bedroom window. It’s really loud. Like REALLY LOUD. And there is nothing that we can see outside when we look. Usually it’s about dawn. I’ll give my special cheesecake recipe to whoever can solve the mystery. The only thing I’ve been able to find on the internet is maybe a possum, but no sound clips to verify.
