as Truen would say.
And truly, what a nice Thanksgiving it was; we have had a very restful weekend together. Squeeze had 4 days off, which was prit'near a mini-vacation for us. Or stay-cation, as it was. It felt so good. So very good. I would definitely say the whole family reveled in it.
Big breakfasts. Long naps. Family time. Leisure. Time to talk. Late-to-bed nights, early-to-bed nights. Reading. Tree trimming (the boys were chomping at the bit). A lighted parade and visit with Santa. Lovely.
Meanwhile, I am 36 weeks pregnant. Ugh.
Generally uncomfortable. Very tired in the evenings. Groin spasms (oh joy) that stop me in my tracks. Peeing all the time. Pushing the wee babe's feet off my ribs when it is awake and stretching. Lots of contractions, particularly in the evening hours. Waking up 2-3 times a night to urinate. Tired.
etc. etc. etc.
I am starting to feel so ready to be done. Another month.
