So, let’s see.
I felt sore all day yesterday from my fall, but today the soreness is gone and if I have any bruises, I haven’t discovered them yet. I must have done a fairly smooth and graceful slide.
Dean took Isaac to Urgent Care last night and got him some antibiotic eye drops, so Isaac’s home again today (has to be on the antibiotic for 24 hours before returning to school) but he can go back tomorrow. Dean also took Ike to the library last night, since we’d all forgotten he has to have 10 books read within a few days for a school assignment (the books were to be read over the course of the semester and he’s already read 5 or 6. He’s a fast reader and I feel confident he’ll make it, now that he has reading material. Before Dean left this morning he told Ike to spend his day reading the books he needs to read, rather than building paper models and reading Dilbert.)
The sun is out, the sky is blue, the snow is melting from off the roads, and we have new icicles forming on our front porch (replacing the last batch that Isaac and his friends knocked down.) I have a Relief Society Presidency meeting tomorrow morning and a midwife check-up tomorrow afternoon, and the sun’s supposed to be out all day tomorrow, so I’m grateful for that.
Other than that, I’m just outlandishly, insanely, crazily fatigued; all I want to do is lie down. I took an hour-long nap this morning while the kids watched TV, and it was terribly difficult to get back up again. I hadn’t really forgotten that I get this tired in the last weeks of a pregnancy, but I always hope that this time my will to get things done will be stronger than the urge to sleep. I’m still hoping. I have most of what I need for the baby (I think) but it does need to be gotten out of storage, and I have plenty of painting and reorganizing projects that aren’t do-or-die, but which I’d like to get done. (If I didn’t want to lie down even more than that.)
