Birthday plans

When Scott asked me what I wanted to do on my birthday I announced that I wanted to spend the day at the lake, have a picnic with the kids, and walk around the many trails there (this seemed like an ideal birthday as I never get to go anywhere), but between last week and today my pregnancy has hit me like a ton of bricks. I'm more than tired, and I have never felt so exhausted in my entire life. Today that exhaustion wiped me out for good. I was feeling pretty sick the entire day, and I just didn't have the energy to do much mothering past 3 pm; other than the essential parts like keeping them alive and uninjured (thank god for dinner left overs from the night before)! Basically I gave into TV and let my kids minds disintegrate a little along with my own. Fortunately they hated all the shows I was watching and widely ignored the mind numbing crap I had turned on.

I'm thinking Scott's original suggestion of taking the kids to the dump (no he isn't leaving them there) and letting me sleep half the day away is the best birthday plan I have ever heard. I think I'm going to take him up on that offer, and since he plans on getting me an Ebook or the Canadian equivalent, then I think my last half of the day will be consumed by reading whatever book I choose to download!

Birthday laziness here I come.

Hmm and maybe Chinese food with that?

Hey cutie, is your iron low? Mine went down with Rowan, and I'd never felt so tired in my whole life.
I'm proud of your tandem nursing, my supply was shot for what Avery needed.
There's this product, Floradex, sold at the health food store, and it's natural liquid iron, it's great. You may want to look into it. Just take it with a juice chaser.
I enjoy hearing about your progress, you're my hero.
