These days, it feels like there just isn't that much of plan. There is, in that we go to work Monday through Friday, and I'm still plugging away at school, and we have an unbelievable number of commitments and appointments. Those things, they just kind of happen - except for school, which I'm forcing to happen, but that's a different story. Everything else though, we're just making up as we go along.
For instance, food: We're loosely following the meal plans that SkinnyTaste puts out, but I'm not nearly as on the ball with sticking to our meal plans lately. We've been eating out a bit more again, largely because I'm TIRED all the time. Like, the kind of tired where you go to bed at 8:30pm, you're so tired.
Also, because it's just fun to eat out, and that is going to be limited once this kid makes its grand appearance. We went out to dinner a couple of weeks ago with my cousin, and I got 2 desserts. It was a great decision.
How I spend my free time has also been largely up in the air. Some days, I can literally conquer the world. Unfortunately, this almost always is followed by a day where it is literally impossible to get off of the couch. Like, we went to this gorgeous spot overlooking the beach in Pacifica to take my maternity shots, and I had plenty of energy. The next day, I watched Netflix for 6 hours, and we skipped church because I was so exhausted. Oh yeah, that's a thing these days too: We started going to church. This is a pretty big deal for us, if you know both of our histories with organized religion and our personal beliefs.
Last thing we're winging? All things baby-related. This is the entirety of the progress we've made in preparing for the little bundle we're expecting 7.5 weeks from now. A crib with no mattress, and a handful of space-themed clothing items that I couldn't pass up. I figure that as long as the nursery is done by the time this kid is 3-6 months old (when we expect to transition him/her out of our room), we're doing okay.
Oh, and did I mention we aren't finding out the gender of the baby until birth? Because that's a thing we're doing. Leave your guesses in the comments!
