Crazy traveling lady here, back from a whirlwind month! We traveled to see my family in Florida (with fabulous baby shower #1), then drove to New York to see DH's family (with fabulous baby shower #2), and then (because the AF can't let a good thing be) ended up spending a weekend in Alabama because DH got called up at the last minute for mandatory training. Not that I'm complaining; better now than when there's an infant in the house, but it's still just that much extra craziness to handle.
Speaking of being pregnant (and crazy), I have definitely hit the 3rd trimester full on. A friend told me that going from trimester 1 to 2 was like a light switch being thrown and I definitely agree... over the course of 2-3 days, my energy (and appetite) suddenly reappeared. Some mom-friends have told me that this energy lasted them till month 9, others that it went away just as suddenly at the beginning of month 7. I am apparently in a third category: let's call it the "long slow decline" group. I'm starting to feel my energy flag a little earlier and easier, but I'm no where near the exhausted state of my first few months. I just hope this decline isn't too rapid; there's a lot to be done still before the baby arrives!
It should be a quiet few weeks around here. I'm almost done with another class and will be starting my last pre-baby class in a couple weeks. After that, I take a 3 month leave of absence, then return to take my last two classes after the first of the year. I'm hoping to get further on some sewing projects and put up a post soon about ones I've completed since my last update. I'm also hoping to actually crack open a book this month! Then there's the baby furniture to be assembled and the clothes to wash and the registries to update. Maybe it's not going to be as quiet as I thought...
Oh! One last thought/question: what's your favorite personal finance blog? Mine is Get Rich Slowly, but I'm looking to add one or two more to my subscriptions. I'm also on the lookout for a purely military personal finance blog. If you know of one, please send it my way! Thanks all! More coming soon!
