usually, i'm surprised when another month has passed. but not this time.
august felt like it was moving at the speed of molasses at times -- a combination of heat + nausea + fatigue + that agonizing wait before the first ultrasound, i suppose. but this morning, i woke up and JUST LOOK AT THE TEMP!
i'm not even feeling as nauseated as usual today, which is great on some levels but actually worries me [even though i should probably get a grip].
things i am excited about this month
♥ trip to LA!
for better or for worse, we're going next weekend! [josh has a conference so i'm tagging along friday - monday]. i better enjoy it because september 12 will be the last vacation day i will EVER have in my fellowship [maternity leave will suck up the rest for the next 2 years].
♥ return of good TV! i'm already going through glee project withdrawal, but glee itself will return, as will modern family and my ridiculous guilty-pleasures-series, desperate housewives and grey's.
♥ transitional weather well, maybe. sometimes it just seems like another month of summer here, but we may get some crisp mornings [like today!] that are definitely a breath of fresh air. perfect running weather in the mornings -- can't ask for much more.
♥ exiting the 1st trimester maybe -- it depends on which definition you use! i do have my big nuchal translucency ultrasound this month [september 26, at almost 13 weeks] and i can't wait to have that behind me.
