I have the blahs. I have had the blahs for almost two weeks. The weird thing is, I shouldn't have the blahs.
Everyone knows what the blahs are, right? Yeah. I figured you all would.
See here is the thing. This is an exciting time of year for me. Owen gets enlistment bonuses and tax returns (we are getting the most this year that we have ever gotten by quite a bit!) New furniture is being purchased. This includes, but is not limited to: a new desk, a big girl bed for Mikaela, a new entertainment center (and a flatscreen to go in it!) and book shelves. All of our bills are being paid off. Nobody should be calling us anymore asking "when are you going to pay us?" Baby Liam will be here in about 3 months. I have lots of things I want to make and do before he comes.
See exciting stuff. Instead I can only focus on the negatives. We broke the last snappi and Mikaela is having to wear disposables, which give her a rash. Getting new furniture means moving stuff around to fit it in. This means I have to unpack all the boxes I have been ignoring since we had nowhere to put the contents.
I have a swap that I am helping to run on Ravelry. Each package going out contains coffee/tea and yarn and other valentines themed goodies. This should be a good thing, right? Well I dont wanna mail out the stuff I got for my swap partner. She and I have similar tastes in things (except that she doesnt like the smell of vanilla and I would make the whole world vanilla scented if I could) and I love everything I got for her and love the handmade item I am including.
Owen started letting me go to a knit night at my LYS (local yarn store for you non-knitters) and while I love the group, I hate having to drive myself. I hate driving!
I realize how whiney this all sounds, which is why I havent been blogging. I am wondering if this is a pregnancy thing. I know each pregnancy is different, but I have always been excited at the end of my pregnancies, so I have no basis for comparison! What do you guys think? Do you think my blahs are pregnancy related, or is just how alot of people are feeling right now? IS there a blahs epidemic similar to the tummy bug that has been going around?
What do you think?
