Magic House

Yes, I know I've been absent for a while. I just haven't had much to talk about and I didn't want to bore everyone to death with mundane details of my everyday life. Don't get me wrong, many people can make even the most mundane thing into a fun, interesting and humourous blog. But that's not me, for sure!

There's not much of anything going on here. I'm more exhausted than anything else. I've been lying down at 8:00 in an attempt to fall asleep by 8:30 and thus get closer to 9 hours of sleep a night. On top of that, I often come home after work and nap for an hour or so. It seems all I can do of late is sleep. I've tried to work out, but it doesn't really help -- all it does is make me even more wiped out. I assume all of this will pass in a few more weeks, and I'll start to feel like myself again. Until then I'm just trying to get as much sleep as possible. Also, it can be hard to get a good night's sleep when I'm getting up (literally) three times a night to pee. Fun times. Oh well, it could be much worse -- I could be suffering from morning sickness. Yeah, I'll take being tired and having to pee all the time over "morning" sickness anyday!

Tomorrow night is the monthly free family night at the Magic House. Some of you might have heard about it, it's a famous children's museum. It's called the Magic House because it shows how "magical" things are done with science. It's a huge house chalked full with non-stop fun (well, for the kids). Before I moved into this house I bought, I used to live just blocks from this massive house. Now I live about 7 miles away. It's worth the small drive, though, because the kids have a blast each time they go, even if it is very overcrowded on the free night. So, that's what I'll be doing tomorrow night.

I really don't have much else to talk about. Even now, after getting 8.5 hours of sleep and a nap after work yesterday, I'm just ... tired. Lots of tired, and thus not much brainpower going on. These past few weekends I've done nada. I need to try and think of something to do this weekend with the kids, so I can at least have something else to blog about.

Hello, just recently found you. Congratulations on your pregnancy. In the beginning you do feel wiped out all of the time. Take good care of yourself. I hope all goes well for you. Iris

I am glad you are getting enough sleep and the pregnancy is good! I am tired stressed and overworked too! I need a day off!

Glad that you are doing well and having enough rest.

Magic house sounds like lots of fun. By the time you are reading this, the trip should have been over. How was it? The kids enjoyed themselves? Hope that you enjoyed yourself too.

Have a great weekend!
