Last night Aimee and i stayed up making a pirate ship cake for Connor's 4th birthday. I can't believe he is turning FOUR! Where did the little baby who made my heart swell go?
On the way up north, what should have taken 30 minutes took nearly 2 HOURS! Traffic crawled and people were driving aggressively in response. I also felt myself getting agitated, having to pee, having no option but to ride through the traffic. My phone's prognosis told me i would get there faster if i walked!
I am still in the sort of prequel to the Sacred Feminine Intensive, gathering my materials and learning what the expectations of the program are. One element is practicing breathing, so i used that time to do so. I did feel calmer, more relaxed and even the pressure in my bladder seemed to fade enough for me to feel more comfortable - certainly no small feat for a pregnant lady!
The cake is almost done. Ian was working on a flag when i left last night around 11PM. Two pregnant ladies, up late on a Friday, exhausted and knowing there is more to go? We weren't as sweet as the cake, let me tell you. But! I think it looks awesome. It is also a vegan and gluten-free dessert, which definitely created a little bit of a learning curve.
When i got home i was exhausted, and quickly fell asleep.
Alas, sleep was fitfull - i woke up twice (again, darned need to pee!) and the cat was being a fussbudget, meowing and pawing at the door. I only got a few hours of sleep. Rather than toss and turn in bed, i woke up an hour and a half before the alarm. I took time getting dressed, even lighting a candle and taking a pause. I did a little puttering - emptying trash and straightening up. Then i set some tea to steep, did a short prenatal yoga video and had my tea as i write this.
I feel very relaxed and ready to take on a day of cleaning, toddlers and sugar.
