Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I haven't even hit the 7 week mark and already I'm impatient. I'm ready to start feeling better, I'm ready to stop being so tired, I'm ready to be able to really work out again, but mostly, I'm ready to be past the first trimester!
I recently saw a little quote (and you all know how I LOVE quotes) that said, "Life is not a journey, the journey is life." I like that a lot. But it still doesn't help with my patience.
I really do amaze myself though. I find it remarkable that, considering the speed at which the last 4 years have flown by, June seems like it will never come. I know it will. After all, it comes every year! A lot is going to happen over the next 9 months. Thanksgiving, my little guy's 4th birthday, Christmas, New Years, baby girl's 3rd birthday, my nephew's 6th birthday, a trip to Mexico (where I'm sure I'll be looking like a beached albino whale), the Kentucky Derby, my birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and then baby #3. That's a lot to squeeze into 9 months and that's not even half of it!
I need to start planning. Well, I've got plenty of time to plan though... Maybe I'll go a florist to get some roses that I can stop and smell every once in a while.
