a day off is never a day off

is it?
I took today off work just because.  Well, that's not really true.  I'm exhausted...every minute of the day.  I'm 35 weeks pregnant and so as you can imagine, I am not sleeping as well as a soon to be new mom should.  I am up constantly throughout the night to pee and if I try to limit my water intake before bed, I wake up parched and needing to down a glass of water which in turn makes me have to pee. It's  a never ending cycle.  To top it off, we have recently decided to keep the cats out of the bedroom at night.  We made this decision because the cats, namely Brody, were waking us up several times a night by laying on our heads or right next to our faces and purring really, really, really, loudly.  I know that it means that they (or rather, she) loves us, but we were getting absolutely no sleep.  and then coupled with the constant need to pee... you can guess how I would feel every morning.  So Covey is pissed.  She loves the bed and our bedroom has always been her "territory".  So she has taken to sitting outside our bedroom door and meowing over and over and over...We could lock her in our room as she isn't nearly as obnoxious as Brody but then she would cry to get out to eat, use the litter box, etc.
So we are stuck right now.  Hopefully, the change will be accepted. and even more hopefully, before the baby gets here.

So I am home today with the purpose of relaxing and catching up on sleep.

Yeah, right.  We visited Jacob's parents this past weekend, which was awesome, of course. We always have a blast there.  We went to the huge playground by their house on Saturday

and on Sunday, we went to downtown Greenvillle and hit the Children's Museum.  It's an excellent museum and if you are ever in Greenville - I highly recommend you taking your child (ages 2 to about 12) there.  All of the exhibits are hands on and interactive.  Hit the bottom floor last- as its the water exhibit and your child is bound to get soaked.

But I digress....
So because we went to Greenville, the laundry wasn't done, the groceries weren't bought and nothing was cleaned. So that's what I have been doing today. Instead of resting, I've been cleaning.

 BUT- my downstairs looks awesome!

Upstairs? not so much- but that can wait for the weekend.
