I am trying to decide if going to bed and feeling all gross and burpy is better than sitting up and blogging whilst trying to focus on not feeling all pregnant and sick. I guess another issue is I don't have anything to blog about, ya know the, "ooooo I am gonna totally blog that" kind of blog. So, probably not gonna be a hum-dinger of a post, but at least it'll give ya something new to look at in the morning.
Anyone out there have any tips for "morning sickness" that hits in the evenings? I've tried Tums. Finally. I bought some a couple weeks ago and have carried them around for days cuz I was nervous to take them. I even called my friend Jill to get her professional opinion b/c I remember her taking them once when she was pregnant. I actually opened them to give a couple to a friend of mine who's pregnant at church, but was too chicken to try a couple myself. I think I was afraid they'd be like Pepto Bismal or something. That medicine ALWAYS made me throw up when I was taking it to NOT throw-up. Anyway, I finally bit the bullet, er the pills and they weren't too bad. I opted for the tropical flavored ones, but they don't seem to be taking away the "ew I'm so nauseous" feeling I get in the evenings. I talked to my friend, Justiel, who's about 6 weeks ahead of me and, secretly, in my mind I was thinking about how jealous I was that she was gonna pass the pukey phase before me. And WHY am I whining about it? It's not like this isn't the first time around this popsicle stand. Well, whatever, I hate it, so if anyone has any tips, post em.
Oh, and post tips on how not to be a total space cadet. We had enrichment scrapbook calendar group tonight of which I had NO responsibilities for anything tonight. Well, I did have to show up, set up tables, be supportive, leave at 7pm to pick up my daughter at gymnastics, come back and be supportive, and clean up. Usually I teach the class with my friend ElRae's help, but this month she and Donna figured out the page, she shopped, put everything together, etc. and all I had to do was show up. So with not a lot to do (ElRae even did most of my layout as the example) you'd think it wouldn't be too hard to remember to run around the corner to pick up my eldest daughter from gymnastics. OH NO! Because I am a space cadet and totally forgot in the hour since dropping her off that I would have to get her. Luckily one of the other responsible moms noticed Kenzie hadn't been picked up and offered to call me on my cell. Reason #4 why you should always answer your cell phone even if you don't recognize the number (it could be a parent reminding you to DO YOUR JOB!) Of course, Mackenzie wasn't phased too much after I raced the 3 minutes over to the gym, "Mom, it's not like you haven't forgotten me before." Nice. Any tips about that ladies and gentlemen?
We're headed up to the big Livestock Days in Cedar this weekend, so I s'pose I should do laundry and pack in the morning. Oh, and I should probably not be in denial about having YW leadership meeting tomorrow night and prep my talk and handouts for that. And do the invitations for the YW medallion dinner in a couple weeks. And find the modesty skit for the Beehive Conference amongst me piles of papers. I'm watching ElRae's daughter in the morning since she's an active PTA mom and I am more of a pay-your-dues-and-donate-treats-for-all-functions kind of PTA mom. And I own that. I'm not complaining one bit about any of that stuff, mostly because tomorrow is the last day before track break. And to echo Leah's post, hallelujah.
Before I go, here's some rockin' pics of the BYU/UNLV alumni tailgating party where my rock star hubby worked his magic. Of course, I had to add the pictures of all the fans, too.
