So, my big writing project today was (supposed to be) completing this week’s discussion board post. I wanted to submit that as early as possible so I could spend maximum time writing my paper.
I should have done the paper.
The assignment sounds simple. Normally, I’d be all about explaining the “why” of something. But, the way the assignment was phrased, it is so vague that I have been writing for at least 6 hours total and have no idea what I’m saying at this point. So, during my insulin shot tonight, I decided that it was time to put the brakes on this project and e-mail my professor for clarification. A girl only has so many hours anyway, and I feel like I’ve totally wasted the ones I’ve put in so far.
Speaking of insulin, it seems to be helping quite a bit. *Knock on coconut.* I had some weird numbers today, but my doctor is happy overall with the way they’ve looked since we started shots. Yay! The bad news is that I’m really craving my Grammy’s lemon meringue pie with ice-cold milk…and the closest I’m going to get to that is sugar-free lemon instant pudding a couple of tablespoons a couple of bites at a time unless I can figure out how to make it with almond milk. Do you think lemons and almonds go together? I’m on the fence about it. I can’t tell if it sounds good because I’m pregnant or not. It could be worse…I could be craving chocolate cake with ketchup or broccoli and cheese with caramel corn.
New Baby is already performing above average. His estimated weight at this point of the game puts him in the 87th percentile. Seriously, he weighs nearly as much at this point as I did when I was born. We still have a little way to go, so…ouch.
I think it’s time to go lie down and read a book until I fall asleep so I don’t keep obsessively checking my e-mail every five minutes to see if my professor has responded yet.
I couldn’t help myself. I just checked. He hasn’t.
