This explains just perfectly how I feel right now. And since I am in the process of going through my Jane Austen books right now (some of the very very few books that are worth reading more than once. Or twice. you get the picture.) I thought it was appropriate.

I copied it from a girl I went to High School with. I won't mention who because she kind of strikes me as a private type of person.(I feel O.K looking at it because I have commented, so she knows I am there. Theoretically. I'm not sure if my ideas of blogging etiquette are correct or not.) Of course she is super talented, and the colors and sentiment and everything fit her whole new blog layout. I can only copy it and stick it in a post. I don't have the talent to find quotes, change colors and fonts and everything, and make it fit perfectly into my own blog. So I plagiarize.

Back to the quote. Inelegant is a very polite way to state how I am feeling these days. This may be too much information, but I tend to walk around my house with my shirt pulled up over my big huge belly. I feel like I have a huge built in heater, and I do anything I can to make myself more comfortable. I keep a spray bottle by my bed to wet my feet at night so I am cool enough to fall asleep. I am pretty sure that if I didn't have kids, I would walk around in my underwear all day. Why do we live in the desert again? ;)

This is kind of what I look like on a day to day basis walking around my house. Except this is right before I had Brenley, so picture my belly a little smaller, and the rest of me a little fatter;) My MIL will be horrified when she sees this. She thinks this picture is disgusting. I'm pretty sure most of you have had something like this type of huge pregnant belly, so you won't be offended, right? ;)

3 people know I love comments!:

Love the pic. Not gross, cute. i would take a shower at night before bed. A tepid one. When I got out I didn't dry off. Just kind of pat yourself. leave a little water on. Lay down to air dry the rest of the way. I had a dr recommend this to me and it worked pretty well. Our latest electricity bill? $858. sick eh?

I was shocked to see how "big" you were. It hadn't been that long since I had seen you, right? Thank heavens that was a previous pregnancy as I was feeling really out of it for not noticing. FYI: Mitchell says he's feeling just a little outnumbered!
