I Think I’ll Be Needing One of These

Meet the Gopher. I found it while searching for closet organizers on Bed Bath and Beyond online. I’m officially getting so lazy and so large that I can’t be bothered to bend down and pick things up when I drop them (which is often)… so this super-duper reaching tool is at the top of my Christmas list.

I’m just kidding. I’m not that bad (yet). In fact, for me, the third trimester seems to have come with a burst of energy… or at least motivation. I’m more tired than I have been, but the fact that suddenly the baby seems right around the corner has jolted me into making endless baby to-do lists and knocking things off of them every day. Just this week, I’ve cleared out the nursery closet, organized the utility/laundry room, put down a deposit on our daycare, signed up for birth classes, reorganized my spring rotation schedule to allow for my maternity leave (which my school kindly failed to do for me, despite the fact that this was the entire reason I informed them that I was pregnant), revamped our baby registry, put together lists of addresses for my shower and for sending out birth announcements (which I also designed, one for a boy and one for a girl), and researched and bought some nursing bras and tanks.

All this in addition to school and some Christmas shopping here and there… whew!! Now that I think about it, I am pretty tired. So it’s off to watch a movie with Tyler for his 26th birthday, which is today. Belly pic this week, though, I promise! I have to justify my Gopher somehow, right? And what better way than to post a picture of my hugeness for the whole internet to see?
