beautiful weekend

I don't know about you but we've had such gorgeous weather here over the last few days. I'm finding it hard to stay inside...in fact I'm sitting out on the deck right now typing this post. I've got the ghetto fence up and the doggies and I are enjoying the nice weather...until the rain comes that is.

Mr. Football and I had a pretty relaxing weekend. I worked Friday night so I slept half the day Saturday. Cookie, Mr. T and Reverend X came over Saturday night for dinner. We played some Mad Gab...we're pretty cool I know. Sunday was our local March for Babies which went pretty well. We had about 20 people on our team which is double of what we had last year so I felt like I accomplished something. It was a 3 mile walk which would have been just lovely except that it was 80+ degrees, which I'm not complaining about but they ran out of water...at every station. So unless you were part of the front of the group, you didn't get any water for the entire walk. I saw a few of our NICU grads which is always fun. Its always a good feeling when a parent remembers you and shows off their miracle. That's the reason why we're there afterall.

Needless to say after the walk, I crashed on the couch for a few hours. The hubby then made dinner and I laid on the couch all night after that. I have to give credit to all of the dad's out there supporting their pregnant wives...I know it can't be easy. I don't think Mr. Football had any idea what he was getting himself into. Hopefully this first trimester exhaustion will pass soon and I'll be back to normal...as domesticated as I can be that is...

Well I'm off to keep the dogs from attacking the neighbor dogs. Have a lovely day!!

Ah, the days when you could nap and not get in trouble for it! I miss those : ) Enjoy them past the first trimester, you never know how many chances you'll get after the baby is here.

Glad you guys had a successful walk.

Sounds like a fun weekend! I say just keep enjoying the naps and stuff - like NovelTeaMommy said, you may not get many opportunities for sleep in 9 months!

Sounds like a perfect weekend to me!

I still play off the first trimester exhaustion into the second trimester. I'm totally ok with that. =D Glad you're still trucking!

I agree with the tiredness of the first tri- I was asleep on the couch every afternoon! Guess that is what the body needs, right?

Hopefully your tiredness will disappear. I know that's got to be frustrating!
