It seems that all of February, we have been looking forward to March. February was our last regular month before a crazy and exciting March. We were holding our breath that the baby wouldn’t come in February, and hoping that everything turned out ok for the sale of our house and purchase of a new one. Now on the last day of the month, we are just about there!
It is hard to remember to live in the now and not get too excited about the future. There’s no time like the present! It would be a shame to not cherish the final moments of quiet afternoons, walks with my doggy, and cooking without distractions. I also try to remember to enjoy lazy nights in front of the TV with Jeffrey, sleeping without an alarm set, and just worrying about ourselves. I like my morning routine of worrying only about myself and then going to work. Then there’s the easy errands to run without having to rush home to feed a baby, going out to dinner without paying a babysitter, and going to the gym together. And those were just things from this month! And don’t forget about feeling rested.
Jeffrey has enjoyed some weekend golf lessons. I watched the first season of Homeland on Demand. We are doing things we will soon not have time for!
I did end up complaining a lot these past few weeks about being uncomfortable, hot, round, and just “over” being pregnant. It has been a lot of long days of counting down to the big event. I really can’t wait to have my body back and move on to the next chapter of getting to know our baby. We know one easy phase of it being “just us” is ending and we’ll have a human to care for!
But I still try to remember to “be here now,” one of my favorite yoga mantras from when I used to practice regularly. I’m sure we’ll look back at it and remember how simple things used to be.
