DAY 61: Feeling Good

I have been feeling so good the last couple of days. I think it must be sunshine related. I had a couple of hours to myself today when Jonathan and Holland were gone and I just couldn't restrain myself. I did a little vacuuming, a couple loads of laundry, washed some dishes, mopped the floor, and then went out for a little (very little) jog. Don't freak out though - I didn't do them all back to back. I did have some sense to space them out. The sun was shining so bright and I just loved to be energized by it. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it felt to complete each of those tasks even if I had to do them over the course of a few hours. I considered doing a little more, but decided I shouldn't push it. After the tiny, little jog, I started to feel some contractions so that scared me enough to stop.

Jonathan has been walking around with a timer when I get up and threatening to "turn me in". He has even put my in "time out" a couple of times much to Holland's great pleasure! He will not be happy when he reads this - I kinda dread the lecture.

However, I only have one response for him: "April Fool's"!

Ash, I was freaking out! I had my hand on the phone to call you!! When I got to the jog and the contractions I started thinking this has to be a joke! Thank God! I guess I am quite gullible, you sure scared me! I know you better than that. What was I thinking?

Dang Ashley, I was about to send you one heck of an email. Totally forgot it was April 1. You spurred me on to freak out some other people. Good job! I'd say funny but my stomach is still a bit sick:-)
