I just realized my previous entry is about to disappear off my page, leaving nothing but blank space on my blog. That would accurately describe what’s going on in my brain right now…a whole lot of nothing. You would think Whoorlito’s arrival in a month would send my brain into a flurry of activity. Alas, not so much. I am so listless. So very bored and annoyed, but not wanting to take any steps to ratify the situation. Isn’t that the worst?
It’s the heat. All I want to think about is the heat. And it’s not even that hot for shit’s sake. How can it be 79 degrees outside, but 81 degrees in my house? How can my body produce this much sweat while living with a permanant ocean breeze? Why do all my pants stick to my sweaty legs while sitting in silence in front of a fan? Is Whoorlito residing in a perma-sauna?
People weren’t joking about the whole pregnancy-sucking-during-the-summer thing.
My sweet, sweet husband approached me about twenty minutes ago suggesting we go on a walk. He definitely senses my overall “blahness” and pulled himself away from his mound of work to help improve the mood. We started walking around the neighborhood, and within 5 minutes the sweat was beading up on my lip and the sun was scorching my eyes. I made him turn around and walk me home. Since when can I not enjoy a simple evening walk* with my husband?
It makes me sad.
And to top things off, I’m getting a canker sore at the verrrrry back of my tongue which feels like a sore throat. Son of a bitch.
Who wants be my friend? I’m just a ball of gaeity!
Thank Sweet Jebus So You Think You Can Dance is on tonight. Benji sure can shake that ass.
*Just in case my completely riveting writing has peaked your curiosity, we are going to try the walk thing again tonight when the sun starts to set. ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST, PEOPLE!

rockstar started tonight as well and oh, my, god! there is a chick on there from africa that could kick everyone’s ass. literally. i’m thinking she’s on the roids.

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing one of those horrible very back of the mouth canker sores. It was like the never ending sore throat. Every time I looked back there, that damn canker sore was smiling back at me. It sucked some serious arse! I hope yours passes quickly.
As for this last month…you still have to reach the “I can’t take one more freakin’ day of this” phase. Good times are ahead.

I kept checking in, wondering if Whoorlito had arrived early.
You need a pool to sit in, or head to the ocean. I was pg in the summer with my little guy and the pool saved me. I spent the last six weeks (all of July and half of August) sitting in our oversized kiddie pool. It was the best investment of the summer.
Hope you got your walk in :)

That’s it! A baby pool for the front lawn. If you don’t do it, I might.
AmandaJuly 6, 2006 at 8:03 am
Yeah, if I were to plan for the next baby I would definitely try to avoid the sweltering summer months. I feel your pain and wish you a cooler day today. Have you started your maternity leave yet?
jonnikerJuly 6, 2006 at 8:20 am
Ugh, I cannot imagine the pain and suffering you must be enduring, seriously. I’m hot ALL THE TIME, and I’m not even pregnant.
The pain. The heat. The sweat.
(I, too, was worried that Whoorlito arrived early or something)

I’m not sure what part of south OC you reside, but I live near the Aliso and Wood Canyon Widerness Park in Laguna Niguel and took a nice walk there last night as the sun was setting. Very cool breeze near the top of the world trail, which is very accessible by car from the Laguna Beach side. Good luck tonight!

the good news is whoorlito is almost here! cool baths. take cool baths.

So You Think You Can Dance is riveting televison. I like Ivan & Allison.The contemporary dance was a bit creepy – the whole “doll coming to life” bit to Fall Out Boy.

i think you should be able to feel blah for a while, and relish in it, because your life will soon be so busy that you will possibly wish for a blah day here or there. ;)
and i love that you love that show, too. sssh! don’t tell me, i haven’t watched it yet.
AngellaJuly 6, 2006 at 7:55 am
That’s why we head to the beach every day. The kids play in the sand and water, and I stay calf-deep in the lake to stay cool. And take cold showers. And go in the pool we just bought for the backyard.
It’s all about the water when you’re pregnant in the summer (it’s my 2nd summer pregnancy)
don't call me ma'amJuly 6, 2006 at 5:21 pm
My oldest was born at the end of July… I didn’t leave the air conditioning once that summer. Well, except to step into an air conditioned car to drive to some other air conditioned place.
The baby pool idea is a great one. Or you could go to a lot of movies at the theatre. Dark and cool= soothing.
Good luck. :-)

I have a gland problem (undiagnosed, of course), so I sweat like Chris Farley doing calisthenics in a sauna. I say that because I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I like what Sarcomical wrote, though…relish in easy quietness.
linJuly 6, 2006 at 2:25 pm
Amazing…Jurgen has the same undiagnosed glandular problem that I have. Head sweats are so attractive.
Not much longer, kid. Hang in there. It’s starting to cool down already. Even here in Topanga the ocean breezes are winning over the heat of the valley.

Hang in there. You’re almost there. I’ve always thought that we feel so miserable at the end of our pregnancy so we’re not afraid of labor anymore. We’re just ready for it to be done!
And while I don’t watch So You Think You Can Dance in its entirety, I do love Benji. I always seem to catch it when he’s dancing. He’s awesome in my book. For me, it’s all about Rock Star!
