Naps for the masses

Time for another bi-monthly update. I am really sucking at this blogging thing lately. I am still tired ALL.THE.TIME. I am now firmly esconced in my second trimester at 15 weeks 1 day today. I went to the doctor for a checkup and all was well. No weight gain, yet. I did get to hear the heartbeat. Only 3 more weeks till I find out what we are having. I should be able to pencil y'all in for another post around then. I kid.

I have been skirting around the edges of the blogsphere the past few weeks trying to ride out the election. I am so tired of the anger and rhetoric. Pretty much everyone has said everything that could possibly be said so can we move along yet? Isn't there an election in 2010 we can talk about? It has been getting ugly here even in my little conservative town. I have election fatigue for sure and I haven't even voted yet.

I sadly had my last meeting with my college bible study group I was leading tonight. They will be ending the semester soon and then won't be back until the middle of January. With the baby due in mid-April at the latest I felt like I should go ahead and end the group now rather than leave them hanging without a leader in the middle of the spring semester. It was very sad.

I completely skipped over my 1 year blog-o-versary 2 weeks ago. I meant to write about it but then the pregnancy naps won out over usage of my free time. Naps are a highly under utilized resource. I definitely think the world would be a better place if we all had naptime every day. Perhaps if I ever run for President I will run on a platform endorsing a nationwide mandatory naptime. I could probably bring about world peace.

if you let me be in your cabinet, i would totally stand behind your mandatory napping!! i mean other countries do it, right?

oh wait, they are probably socialist countries?

(totally joking!)

I'd vote for that!

I'm sorry you've been so tired. I was so exhausted during my pregnancy that all I could think about was, "how do women do this again when they have another child to care for too!" I hope your energy comes back soon - well, at least as much energy as you can get while chasing after a toddler!

I'm all for the naptime. Happy belated blogoversary! And I, like you, am a horrible blogger when I'm pregnant, lots of people seem to get that way, your not alone!

I hear ya', I can't wait for the election to be over. Though I'm more sick of the local politics than the Presidential, believe it or not.
I'm all about naptime! I'm totally doing a write in on the ballot with your name.

How funny! And I definitely would endorse a mandatory naptime for sure! And the election? I'm SOOOO sick of it all too. We all know who's going to win because the general public is just stupid (ever watched Jay Walking on Jay Leno?!). I'm hoping for a miracle, but looks like we're not going to get it. How's that for ambiguity?

I will vote for anyone who enforces mandatory naptime - sounds dreamy to me!

Tracey said...

I wrote a post very similar to your paragraph regarding the politics on blogs lately. I am DONE reading political arguments! We all know who we each want by now. ENOUGH already with posting about the candidates!!!

I love LOVE taking naps. It is one of the best parts about having a toddler! It's an excuse to nap WITH him!

Can't wait to hear what you're having ...

I am all about mandatory naps for sure! They are one of my very things, especially since becoming a Mommy!
