I saw this little sign the other day.  It spoke to me. 

I know i am!!

It is so true.  I just returned from a weekend in Carbondale visiting my college roommate.  She and her husband live there and he works for the college.  I can't count how many times I said "I don't wanna go." This is in no way a reflection of my feelings for Chelsea and Andy.  I love them dearly and would gladly see them daily.  It is a reflection of how I feel about having to physically move myself.  I keep asking Zac to work on figuring out teleportation for me...but he says he is busy.  

I laugh at this, but it is a little sad.  I am 26!  When did I get so old that the hours between 11 and 7 seem like they were never meant for anything other than sleeping and the prospect of having to be outside of my comfort zone seems almost offensive?  I like to pretend that it's just the pregnancy.  If I were not so pregnant, I wouldn't have taken a nap on Chelsea's couch Saturday afternoon. It's a lie.  Baby has little to do with it I am afraid.  I have simply turned into a slightly antisocial homebody.  Case in point, yesterday my sisters had a WildTree tasting party at their house.  I wanted to tasted the food, I wanted to go, I simply wanted to go at my own convenience and in my pajamas.  I think part of it had to do with the fact that my size bigger jeans weren't dry, so I had to squeeze my pudge belly into my smaller jeans and I thought I might just pop a button at anytime.  And again, the other part being that I am a lazy antisocial girl.  

So that's what I have been dealing with lately.  I can sleep 12 hours in a day and still need a nap in my car in the park at noon.  I come home from work and sit in my chair until hunger inspires me to move.  And I celebrate cancelled plans because that means staying at home and changing into yoga pants.  Lazy is what it is about right now.  I am a lazy old pregnant lady.  What up.


  1. I laughed out loud at the sign...I can relate utterly and completely!

  2. it gets older and lazier...word from yo mother.

  3. I think I've caught up with you. The Levis, the ultrasound, and the lazies. (Well, when it comes to the "lazies", I've not only caught up with you, I've left you in the dust!) You have a lot of changes "on your plate". Fortunately you have a great husband, stable extended family, and church community around you. Even so, these changes add up to S-T-R-E-S-S.

    Just sayin' aware. Be cool. Listen to your body. Stay in the Word. Pray. A lot!

    Friends care. Even those of us whom you've never met.

  4. That is me to a T! (Aside from the pregnant part):-) Just relax as much as you want and be as lazy as you want because once the baby comes, having the opportunities to be lazy are few and far between. Enjoy it while you can!!!!
