the doctor checking Charlie's heartbeat this morning- I love that sound so much.
Reading: After finishing up Orange is the New Black on Netflix, I was curious about the memoir it was based off of, and picked it up. I'm almost done with it and definitely enjoying it. I do, however, wish I had read the book first. Although the two are pretty different I think the book isn't as fun to read because I know too much, but at the same time, reading it first would have made the show even more fun, if that makes sense. I also recently downloaded a few of this woman's books to my Kindle. Have you read anything by her? Any suggestions on where to begin?
Eating: Maybe I should have called this section, "Dreaming of Eating," because that's exactly what I've been doing, thinking about the delicious sandwiches and sushi I'll be eating once I deliver this baby! Some women don't follow the whole "no lunch meat" thing, but I do, and even though I know I can heat up the lunch meat before I consume it, it's not the same as getting a big, cold sub sandwich from the deli. And ugh, how I love sandwiches! That's the very first thing I'm looking forward to eating. Turkey, provolone cheese, veggies, and a ton of oil and vinegar.
Thinking about: Oh, my mind has been such a hazy place lately. Ever hear of baby brain? It's definitely a thing, and in these last two weeks of pregnancy I'm definitely experiencing it. It's kind of like a fog is hanging over my thoughts. Cloudy. I've been thinking about so much though- about what life will be like in just a couple of weeks, how it will feel to hold Charlie, if time will seem to go faster or slower in those first few precious weeks, now that I know just how fast it can really go. I've been lost in thoughts at times, thinking a lot about past things for some reason- having weird memories pop up here and there, reminded of old friends and old places. I've also been thinking back to right after Henry was born, and then of how long it took for me to really get back to feeling like me. I remember even at the end of my pregnancy I felt very unlike myself, but this time I don't really feel that way. I think I wrote a post about it too, something about getting my groove back. Outside of just looking forward to being a non-pregnant person, I don't really feel those same things, and I hope once he's here it's different than last time, as far as getting back to feeling like "me." But we'll see! All of the unknown is so scary, but so exciting too.
Enjoying: So I was really sad when Google Reader closed its doors, and felt frustrated because I was so used to that program. As much as I love the next new thing, I often feel annoyed when I'm forced to switch or even try it out unless I am the one who makes the decision, so the whole Google Reader thing was an annoyance. In the span of things, not so important, but in my little online microcosm it was. Ha. But anyway, I ended up trying Bloglovin' and I really, really love it. I like it even more than GR and I especially love how easy their app is to navigate. So, yay!
Watching: Okay so can we talk about this past Monday's episode of The Bachelorette? I for one have never seen anything so...I don't even know how to describe what that was. Painful? Awkward? Way too much? 30+ minutes of crying, then silence, then more crying. I know the show is totally fabricated and thrives off of people like myself who want to believe it's real, but that felt awfully real to me. Did any of you watch it? I haven't tuned into much of the season this time around, but that episode got me re-engaged, and next week's finale should be interesting, to say the least.
Loving: This weather and how excited for Fall I'm getting, dreaming of little matching outfits for the boys (you know I have to), planning our last two weekends as a family of three, finishing up Charlie's nursery, Henry and the fake laugh he was doing tonight, spending extra time with Veronica and Max this week, seeing Halloween stuff popping up in stores, another cousin sleepover with Lucy this weekend, Pink Lady apples and peanut butter, protein pancakes, and a whole lot of citrus!
