So I guess I am like 27 weeks or something now. I am beginning to get to that point where I cannot get comfortable when I sleep. Everything I eat has some sort of issue with my system and... I am bursting with creation!! New ideas are crowding in from out of nowhere. Collaborations, connections, co-conspirators...
For the past couple of days we have been trying out this new schedule, where Sugar Daddy takes the kids in a concerted effort to let me "work". I am supposed to be...
- writing my book,
- doing social media for The Yoga Stone,
- connecting with clients of Bellah Bellah Ballyhoo,
- planning mixers for S.M.I.L.E.
- getting all the little paperwork ducks lined up in rows for the charter school vendor approval process
- oh and herding some cats as I schedule classes and workshops for Learning Barefoot (aka The Bellah CASA, our enrichment program formerly known as S.C.H.O.O.L- which started out being called... Learning Barefoot read all about it in our most recent newsletter...).
But my doctors office keeps calling, it seems I haven't been to see the baby Dr in like 5 weeks, and I am supposed to be seen every 4 weeks- don't I know? But this is baby #4, don't THEY know? I kind of already know what to expect- I take my own blood pressure and have learned to bring it down almost immediately with little 3 minute meditations. I don't want to know how much I weigh. I feel the little sugar cube's movement regularly- quite often whenever I have to pee really bad already and have just sneezed. If you have a few kids you know what I mean... if you don't, you don't want to.
Anyway back to my reverie...hearing a neighbors distant hammer taps, the buzz of our lawn mower in the front yard, the drone of a jet plane overheard- it all pulls me back to my childhood when all I wanted to do was play outside all day. And I then I feel sleepy all the sudden.
But then again that is probably because of the little middle of the night monsters that inhabit my bed- there is even one in my actual body- who roll about kicking whomever they please!
So I stand up to stretch a bit, because I am a bit sore- even though I wisely listened to the lovely yogini who reminded us to
choose peace over pride
as we adjusted our hips to become aligned with the center of the universe- or in my case to provide a little more room for her!
Then I decide to pull up the prenatel yoga ebook I downloaded - Simple Everyday Prenatel Radiance, (love the Kindle Cloud)... but I end up getting distracted and downloading a new ebook instead- and then I notice they both have someone sitting "criss-cross applesauce" on the cover... I hear giggling as little bare feet scamper past my window- talking about mommy being at "work". And I see that it is 5:06. My work is done for the day- time to go outside and play!
But first I have to pee... again.
