lost in the holiday muddle

my t3 seemed to have gotten lost in the muddle of the holidays since christmas and new year's both fell on thursdays. christmas was a blur and new year's was cleanup around the house and the sad taking down of the christmas decorations. so to get myself back on track, this week i am thankful for:

1. my husband. i am often thankful for him and sometimes it feels like a cop-out to use it here. on the other hand i am thankful for him for different reasons at different times. often lately it has been difficult to be thankful for him because my emotions are so haywire, because this pregnancy has really been kicking my butt. fortunately he is my rock, the constant, true thing in my life, even when i am hormonal and awful to him. he has been gone on a business trip this week and while it's nice to have some time to myself without the demands of marriage and living together, i miss him. the time apart reminds me of why i fell in love with him and chose to navigate life with this wonderful man.

2. baby kicks. when we got pregnant i swore to myself that i would not make this a "mommy blog" or go on and on about being pregnant. it feels like it has taken over my life and i didn't want it to take over my blog (at least, not this one). it's impossible to keep the baby out of here completely because of how being pregnant seems to consume everything and as i mentioned it is beating the crap out of me. i cannot wait to be done with being pregnant, and then she kicks or somersaults or something and it is the most wonderful feeling in the world.

3. chocolate truffles. somehow there seems to be a minor proliferation of truffles at my house, which is kind of odd because i'm not a chocoholic or anything. man, are they ever good. one pretty much does it for me so it's not like i'm gobbling them down by the dozen or anything. and wow, how is it that a little thing like a bite of a chocolate truffle can just turn your day around? yummm.

I love what you wrote about being pregnant - i think that's so exciting and it's such a miraculous thing, isn't it?
