It hit me pretty hard a few weeks ago when I realized that in December, the movie The Hobbit was released. Rob and I are huge LOTR fans and in our normal life would have seen it opening
This wasn't like, "Hmmmm, I can't really remember what I did on Saturday..." This was, "Have I done anything since I found out I was pregnant, FOUR MONTHS AGO?!"
It reminds me of a time that I was driving in the car with my mom. We had been sitting in silence for ten or so minutes when she said, "What?" All I could do was stare blankly at her and say, "Neither one of us has said anything for the past ten minutes. What part of that did you not hear?" She laughed and said, "I just checked out for a few and wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything."
"And you figured that by saying 'what' you would be able to catch up on ten minutes of conversation that you hadn't payed attention to?"
We laughed and kept on driving in silence.
Here are some of the things I know I have done in the past four months.
1. Christmas. Claire threw up, I stayed home, spent the day mostly alone. It was a non-day.
2. Valentines. Rob and I went out to Ruth's Chris and had a delicious steak dinner.
3. St. George vacation/work trip
4. Dr. appointments
5. Visits from my Johnny and Dan and Marissa.
If anyone has a time-traveling Delorean they can lend me, please leave a comment below.
I think the rest has just been filled with the following daily schedule:
wake up, breakfast and kids ready for school, gym, getting ready for the day, carpool, lunch, laundry/cleaning, naps, carpool, homework, dinner, kids ready for bed, unwind, bed.
Contrary to what you might think, I'm actually not complaining about this. I know this schedule is required of me, and I'm happy to keep up the daily routine. But perhaps it's also time to see a movie or two and make sure these next four months don't pass me by without a single memory!
Any suggestions on how to make these next four pre-baby months memorable?!
