Sarah's Crazy July
This may not seem like a lot to you—in fact, to some of you, this may seem like the only way to live—but I am lazy and pregnant and love naps. When you're a lazy, pregnant, napper, you like down time. You like a little buffer around your socializing. You like to go out with friends, but you like to come home, sit on your back porch, and watch your daughter eat peaches while singing the alphabet song.
The coming two weeks are going to be a challenge to me, but I'm sure it's going to be worth it.
Last night I got to hang out with friends at a game night. I hadn't seen the couple hosting the party since February and had been missing them recently. I got to catch up with them and some other couples we used to go to church with. Plus, they very graciously fed us delicious hamburgers and guacamole—the truest way to a pregnant woman's heart.
This afternoon, I got to go out to celebrate my dear friend, Sonnet's, birthday at a fun, new restaurant I'd never tried before. Once again, I had the chance to sit down and hear how someone I used to go to church with is doing and once again delicious food was involved. [The restaurant in the story was Mimi's Cafe, which I realize is a chain, but it was new to me! I had the turkey salad croissant and am quite looking forward to finishing the other half for dinner tonight.]
In the coming months, when I'm nursing a newborn and too exhausted to shower, much less get out and see people, these are events that I'm going to look back on with satisfaction. But in the meantime, I'm going to have to find a way to power through (without the blessed assistance of caffeine).
