My First Trimester was a breeze. Oh, I had waves of nausea and soreness and some hormonal fluctuations, but mostly my issues were internal (i.e., "What do you mean, I'm pregnant???).
This here Second Trimester is Kicking My Ass. I get home from work these days before 5 p.m. and am so exhausted I can't think straight. I have no energy, I have no motivation, I have little to no coherence (I just wrote that as "know coherence" and then stared at the screen for a full two minutes wondering what was wrong). I had a cold that lasted a full month (I counted the days) and with the suddenly growing belly and aches and pains pretty much everywhere, I'm uncomfortable all the time and sleeping poorly. And peeing every 3 seconds.
And I know what you're going to say next because EVERYONE says it.
"JUST YOU WAIT."
Yeah, I know. I KNOW it's going to get worse, thank you for reminding me, that is very helpful. Mind if I kick you?
Hmm. Remember how this post isn't about pregnancy? Shut up.
The point is that neither my body nor my mind is working properly and so by the end of the day I am useless. There is no point in my trying to blog.
My last day at work is a week from Friday. And while I have lots of projects in the works and house stuff to deal with (eventually) (because eventually we will be moving somewhere, whether it's Napa or Novato or San Rafael or we're renting or buying) (and we have to pull the trigger soon!), I will be able to blog WHENEVER I want.
Oh my dear, dear Invisible Internet Friends.
I have a folder on my desktop labeled "blog fodder." I have TWO shoeboxes full of "Stuff To Blog About." I have about 27 drafts of entries I never finished, and I have a bazillion photos that could each warrant their own blog entries.
It is alllllll coming. So much stuff you always wanted to know about! (By which I mean "stuff you never, ever wanted to know about, never thought to ask about, but that I'm going to tell you about anyway!")
So if we can just make it through this week and next with just the barest dribs and drabs of blog posts, the flood is sure to follow. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

SERIOUSLY. This is the funniest thing I have ever seen on YouTube. I pick and choose what I post here wisely, and this had me crying, literally, at my desk.
