Ignorance really is bliss

July 4, 2006


Some things I learned or realized this not so holiday-ish weekend.

  • Having a cold while insanely pregnant and miserable with heartburn really kinda sucks. A lot.
  • While having said cold, a nice relaxing holiday weekend is notsomuch a possibility.
  • Trying to manage someone whose English is limited is something of a challenge. Me and www.freetranslation.com are becoming BFF awfully fast.
  • I dug out my old copy of What to Expect The First Year over the weekend. This was an INCREDIBLY bad idea. Know why it’s a bad idea? Because now I am forced to remember all the stuff I chose to replace in my brain with better stuff. Like colic. And dealing with mystery illnesses that cause you to call pediatricians at 2:37am. Or breastfeeding issues. Or colic.
  • Also, I am now reminded that, even though I am the worst pregnant woman walking on the planet, it is easier to manage a baby inside my uterus than outside. At least at this point my life is (mostly) my own. July 26th? It all kinda goes to hell in a handbag. With a soon-to-be-jealous five-year-old as an exciting accessory.

    That’s about all from here. Me and my sniffles and stuffy head are going back to bed. At least until about 9:00pm when the fireworks start and they wake up a sleeping Swimmy who will come and crawl in bed with us thereby ending the beginning of what would probably be a crappy sleep anyway.

    G-d bless America.

      Feel better. And remember that all the bad stuff you chose not to remember? You’ll forget all of it too!

      That baby is coming soon! (19 days?) You’ll probably forget about all that bad stuff after that first margarita anyway!
