N-R-G!

It is amazing how much difference a good night's sleep can make to your energy level after having weeks, and weeks, and weeks, of crappy sleep. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I woke up this morning and feeling refreshed, looked at the clock to discover it said 5:56. Granted, I wasn't pumped about being wide awake just before 6 am but I was pumped about being wide awake for the first time all night just before 6 am!

I woke up starving so got up for a bowl of cereal and thought I would crawl back in bed but I didn't even feel the slightest bit sleepy, so up and at 'em I was!

It is now 8:30 and so far I have gotten up, unloaded and reloaded the dishes, eaten breakfast (twice), gotten dressed, made the Dude's coffee and breakfast, vacuumed the whole apartment, swiffered the living room, mopped the kitchen, dining room and bathroom, and put a load of laundry in.

Like whoa. What's going on here? Who is this girl and what has she done with Lazy Lucy?

My cold feels like it's all gone and I feel like I'm ready to tackle the day! I can feel a cool breeze floating in from the patio door, for the first time in a while, so I'm about to head out to take Nika for a long walk.

Then I'll get ready and head to town for groceries. My SIL and I are having a big freezer cooking day tomorrow so I've got to stock up! And then my mom and I are planning on doing a bit of canning next week so I need some supplies for that. I'm spending the afternoon visiting with a friend and doing some more organization in the baby's room.

I hope everyone has a great Friday. Don't forget, today is the last day to enter my giveaway. I'll announce the winner this evening at 6 pm.

Watch for contractions in the next day or so. This, that you are experiencing, is called "nesting" ... and it sounds like a severe case of it. Labor may be closer than you anticipated!!!! :)

It is truly amazing what you can get done if you just do it! Thanks for the motivation! And I'm not carrying a baby in my belly :) So you are pretty amazing!

I was going to mention the same as Nicole did earlier. We are looking forward to the baby shower on Monday, but really had planned on you being here. No baby yet please!!

Taryn said...

Yeah!! I am glad you are feeling productive. Send some of that goodness over here, mmkay?

Emily said...

Sounds like your starting to nest!!!

When you feel like you've gotten this huge burst of energy out of no where and you go crazy cleaning... the baby is soon to follow!

Holly said...

Wow, if you lived next door I'd have you come over and clean my house!

Penny said...

Oooh -- I'll have to enter the giveaway!

And can I have some of your energy? I think I'm out...

Tricia said...

It sounds like you have entered the nesting phase. That means it's close to delivery time. ;)

SnoWhite said...

Whow! Way to go lady! :-) I couldn't imagine being wide awake at 5:56am! ha, it still kills me to get up at 6:45-7:00ish! Hope you had a great weekend and the energy level stayed up!
