This morning I woke up just after 7:00 a.m. and decided to make some blueberry muffins for breakfast. As I waited for the muffins to bake, I managed to wash the dishes, get a pot of coffee going, sweep and mop my kitchen floor, and fold a small load of laundry. All of that would have taken me an entire week at any other point this far in my pregnancy! Oh, and did I mention that I even made it to work…nearly on time?.
I would say it’s because the temperature finally broke 70, but that was yesterday. Today we’ll be lucky to get 45! I would say it’s because of the birds chirping outside of my window, but that is only partially true (I do not actually remember hearing them this particular morning since the window was closed tight against the cold air). I would say it’s because I’m such a great house keeper, but that would just be a lie. The fact is that I have spent so many many hours laying around on my couch that it actually felt good to get up and do something! So thank you, Second Trimester, for the extra energy, and please don’t go anywhere any time soon!
