I need to find out why I'm so fucking tired all the time. I eat well - lots of fruits and whole grains and veggies and protein. I take a good pre-natal vitamin. I get 7 or 8 hours of sleep most nights, sometimes more. And yet, I feel like I'm on death's door by noon. I'm afraid I'm going to crash my car when I'm driving home because I can barely keep my eyes open. I talked to the OB nurse about it and she was pretty dismissive. I'm either going to have to figure out how to work from home or TCBIM is going to have to get a high-paying second job because I just can't do this any more. I'm too tired to function properly.
My mother's stupid cat has broken four of my dishes and took a big old shit on my couch. She had better be bringing me back some fancy-assed presents from her month in Italy because I'm about ready to kill this animal. And I LIKE cats. TCBIM, not so much. He's ready to chuck the cat outside.
I have heartburn. I never have heartburn. Ever. But now, 21 weeks into this pregnancy, I feel like a dragon. I'm chewing Tums like they're going out of style.
I need a vacation. Somewhere where I can just go and sit and be and not think about anything or anyone or have to be anywhere. I need to decompress. I need the beach or a big park or someplace where I can just lie in the sun and not think for a few days. By myself.
I think we bought The Money Pit. We found out that three of the radiators leak - one of them pretty seriously. The boiler also leaks. Leaking boilers = very, very expensive, apparently. And the tub and sub-flooring in the bathroom need replacing. TCBIM is in plumbing and can do most of the work himself, but still. Boilers? Not cheap. Steam radiators? Not in plentiful supply. Fan-fucking-tastic. Do we have any money? Like fuck we do. It's giving me a big headache and making me get all panicky and breathless to think of the expense.
But I did get Joke's cook book - thanks, Joke. Once I stop living off Ramen Noodles and Kraft Dinner, I'll be able to cook like I grew up in the North End.
Edited to add: I just got this link from someone and it's improved my mood immeasurably.
