Christ on a cracker…I’m tired, y’all.  I let myself slack off on blogging during second trimester so I could catch up on my classes and life in general, but now that I’m waddling through third…I’m tired.

Not of y’all, I heart every single one of your faces, just in general.  I have about 27 (not kidding, I counted) blog posts that I have started and have not finished.  I have an entire board of Pinterest projects that I have been meaning to do before the baby gets here.  I need to clean out a closet and storage room and do some serious purging.  I have the second season of Veronica Mars just begging to be re-watched.

Instead, I go to work, come home, cook dinner if Jethro is lucky and then stare at important shows like The Voice and Bones before I pass out at about 9:30. Occasionally, there are games of Words with Friends, Zombie Jombie or Draw Something involved, but not always.

I’d blame it on me growing a baby, but I think we’ve heard me complain about not getting stuff done before, haven’t we?  (I’d link to the posts, but I’m TIRED.)  Besides, at this point he’s just getting fat, you’d think all my energy would have been depleted when he was forming lungs and the part of his brain that deals with algebra, or something.  But no, second trimester I was perky!  Full of pep!  I even gladly took the steps in my building instead of the elevator!

Now, when I drop something, I have to have a talk with myself about how badly I need it or if it should just make a new home there on the floor.  And I have two more months, y’all!

I think I might just be lazy.  It is a distinct possibility.

Anyway, this is me, stopping in, waving hello and hoping some of y’all are lazy like me and haven’t taken me off your Google reader, or whatever you kids use these days.  Hug your mom/mom-figures this weekend, go see the Avengers (seriously) and if I get my ass in gear this weekend, there’ll be a brand-spankin’ new post up on Monday.

Well, newish.  It’s probably been sitting in my drafts for two months now.

And here’s a belly shot, because apparently I’m supposed to be sharing these more.  We are rapidly heading into torpedo-shaped territory, y’all.  I’m 30 weeks, so seven more until I’m full term and ten more until sh*t officially starts to get real.

Still think there’s time to change my mind and get a puppy instead?

Yes, I took this in the bathroom at work.  LEAVE ME ALONE, I’M TIRED.

    The third trimester really is exhausting. I would leave work early, come home to soak in the tub and then go to bed. Poor D lived on lots of take out or things he could grill himself. You’ll make it! Then the real fun begins. 🙂 Good luck!

    She lives!!! Glad to hear you’re still around, even if you’d rather have a nap than hang out with us 😉 Don’t blame you at all, enjoy your last few weeks of baby-growing!

    I was just looking at your name in my reader today, and wondering how you are. Sorry to hear that you are so tired, but glad to hear anything at all!

    All of my friends that are currently third trimester, which is about 7, say that it is an energy sap. My friend Amber, who is due any day now, comes to faire on Saturday and walks around hoping to hell it will kickstart her labor so she can just be done with it all already.

    It sort of makes me glad that I seem to be the only woman I know of child baring age that is not pregnant right now.

    But you know, before you know it he will be on the outside, and then you will have an incredibly legitimate excuse for never posting, or calling, or anything else.

    You are baby growing. You are allowed to be lazy and tired in all other things nonrelated to that.

    Glad you checked in, Alyssa! I MISS you! Even though I’ve never actually met you, so maybe that’s weird…

    Let’s try: I miss hearing about your life and your funny anecdotes! And good luck with these last few weeks….

    Also: I feel obligated to tell you that I AM getting a puppy tomorrow. But remember that the human-puppies eventually grow up and take care of themselves (or so I’ve heard), so it’s really just the first 18 or so years that’s hard work… you’ll be GREAT!

    I highly recommend that you wait on Veronica Mars until after the baby is born, if you’re planning on breast feeding. I spend the vast majority of my day on the couch feeding the baby, and it’s better not to watch whatever terrible things are on tv at 2 am and instead watch shows you like. For me, this week, that show is the entire run of scrubs.

    I completely understand!! I’m 32 weeks and I suddenly just walking up and down the stairs in my house leaves me breathless. And you and I both have to wait till July – do you KNOW what the heat is going to do to us???

    Wow! Third trimester! Time flies (you know when you are not the one who is pregnant). I think napping is one of the great joys of pregnancy and I recommend doing it as much as possible!
