phase II is here
phase II of pregnancy is officially here! this is a phase that in no way coincides with being in my second trimester--i've been there already for over a month. no, this phase marks the end of major puking (although the occasional random pukage still happens) and the start of major CONQUER MODE.
when in CONQUER MODE, the pregnant female feels the need to start changing everything. and i do mean everything--from hairstyle to home decor, it all has to change. the clutter and mess of the last few months must go and it must go NOW, even if that means ending up quivering in the fetal position from pure exhaustion at the end of the day. it's a very exciting time.
for example, on wednesday i made half a quilt and did eight thousand loads of laundry and reorganized my closet. yesterday i reorganized and purged all the kitchen cabinets, the linen closet, and my bookcase. i also gave away a futon that was crowding our living room (the wide open space makes me intensely happy) and an extra tv, hung some pictures, refitted the slipcover on our sofa, painted some lampshades, and collected a bag full of stuff for goodwill. and the more i get done the more i want to do!
this is so fun. after months of pretty much writhing around in nauseated agony while the house got messier and more cluttered, this is stupendous.
