My little man has zapped my creativity.

I go to work, come home, get in my bed and go to sleep. Sometimes I eat ice cream for dinner.

Sometimes I hang out with Allen while he eats take out.

(Aside: I'm the worst wife ever.  I haven't made dinner in 2 months. Not kidding. )

Long story short, I've been really good (in my own humble opinion) during my pregnancy in terms of exercising and eating well, so I feel a little entitled to slack off a little in the remaining weeks. Also, this kid has a vice-grip on my sciatic nerve, and ice cream is the only thing that makes this better.

Yes, I do understand that there isn't a direct link between my sciatic nerve and the ice cream I've consumed this week.  But in my mind it helps. So, that's really all that matters, right?

I'm not a total sloth, though...We had half the house painted last week, which meant that last weekend Allen and I tore the rest of it up, rearranged all of the furniture in our bedroom, recovered our headboard, purged about 200 lbs of stuff (which he carried to the Goodwill truck), repainted and wipe-on poly'd 2 new bedside tables AND I stayed out with friends until 12:30 on Saturday night. We also moved several large pieces of furniture around in the guest room. And when I say we, I mean he did. In the middle of the night. Because it HAD. TO. BE. DONE. RIGHT. THEN. OR.  I'D. NEVER. SLEEP.AGAIN.  Completely rational request, right??

I'm sure that's what he was thinking.

All of that to say---I have had a really hard time coming up with anything interesting to blog about.  In fact, I bet no one is even reading this anymore.

But then I was introduced to Awkward Family Photographs.

OMG, this ^&*% is funny.

If you've never visited, then you need to go there RIGHT NOW.


I'll leave you with this:

(No offense to any readers who may have taken pre-natal photographs with dirty automobile parts while naked.)

Your mom is reading your blog....every posting. Don't think for a moment you have lost your creativity - who else posts pictures like that! We can't wait to see the house, see you and Allen and especially see the new little babe. Love you, xxxo

I'm here too! And that website is hysterical. I would say I want to see more belly pics but that seems a little inappropriate after this post... :)
