Slow Mornings.

I was totally planning on picking up at work if they offered incentive pay and they did, yesterday and today, but I think I just can’t do it. It’s dreary out and I just feel like a lazy day is calling my name. And really, I want to do yoga today so bad and the class is at 9:45, so it makes it hard to go pick up 4hrs at work.

I went to CrossFit yesterday and woke up at 3:30am so sore. I normally really ease back into workouts after having some time off, but yesterday I just sort of jumped right in. We were doing deadlifts and I love deadlifts and have a hard time doing them at the regular gym (I do them- but I need the rubber plates and rubber mats to really get into it), so I went all in. By all in, I mean like, all in for not working out for two months, but still. I also felt my uterus or something down there, so I was so paranoid when I woke up at 3:30. When I miscarried, the whole week before I kept feeling my uterus and it was such an odd feeling. That’s how I felt last night. I’m sure it’s because my uterus is growing and the ligaments are stretching and I had my first big workout and then cleaned all day, but it was unsettling. So I was up for awhile in the middle of the night worrying. For being two hours short on sleep, I actually feel pretty good. Just craving some me time.

I’m totally craving travel again. And me time. I think this is exactly how I was with Jackson. It’s like the impending doom of newborn days is upon us. I am feeling like I need to soak in our current lives and take advantage of our two year old, who is fully capable of traveling with us. We’re looking at a trip to Quebec City/Montreal, but can’t go until January. So, it’d be cold. But I don’t know if I care. I LOVED our cold Lake Tahoe babymoon and it looks so picturesque. We’re also thinking about Seattle since our friends, Adam and Jessie, are about to return from South Korea (they’re who we went to Japan and South Korea with in May) and we want to visit them before a second baby happens.

I also told Jon that when I’m on maternity leave next time, I want to roadtrip in the northwest and possibly go out to Yoho and Banff in Canada. It may be quite the undertaking with two littles, but I have had a few people offer to come with me to help out, so I think it’d be possible. We’ll just have to assess finances since our house payment is quite a bit higher than it has been in the past.

I’m planning on running to Target after I go to yoga and then I want to start on Jon’s album for Christmas. I had originally made him a photo album for Father’s Day, then I didn’t get his second one done until Christmas, and I think we’re back on the Christmas train this year. I put all of the photos of the year of Jackson in it and I have TONS of photos, so it’s so time consuming. I know it means a lot to Jon though so I have to get it done. I easily spend 50 hours on each album though. It’s a big task… I also need to get passport photos taken for my South Carolina nursing license and try to get all of that mailed in, if I can find the application I filled out. It might be at work. But I want to get this stuff done and out of the way as soon as possible.

Anyway, I need to head out to yoga. Hopefully I don’t die and hopefully I don’t hate it.

  1. I loved Montreal! Especially the older part of the city where it feels like Europe with the cobblestone roads and the old architecture! The summer isn’t so great up there because of all the flies lol.

    I love yoga, you can go at your own pace and if you dont feel like doing a certain pose, just sit down in child pose until you are ready.


    1. I went to the easiest yoga class ever. The ones at our LA Fitness are super basic, which was what I wanted, but this was WAAAYYY too easy. Oh well! I want to go to Quebec City because it’s super European looking, but I’m hesitant to leave the country when I’m pregnant (I have a friend who just had a baby at 23 weeks in Greece and now they are stuck there). I figure Canada is close enough to drive back if there’s an emergency!


      1. Oh wow that sucks! It might depend which country, you might have a better chance of bringing the child quickly from Canada. But then you have to go through all the paperwork to get them citizenship and that takes about a year and its a hassle. So yeah, stay close lol.
