91 - Tazmanian Devil unleashed...


Yes, the second trimester is here...and my inner Tazmanian Devil has made an appearance. I am bouncing off the walls with energy...as if I am making up for all the down time in the first trimester. Here is just a sample of one of my days lately...

6AM-10AM - Wake up bright eyed, and spend 4 hours catching up on about 30 friend emails I've neglected and submitting work-related paperwork and insurance forms.
10AM-12PM - Decide it is time to clean out the pantry, fridge, and freezer. Lay a bunch of stuff to cook on the counter.
12PM-1PM - Decide to do some touch up painting in the dining room.
1PM-1:30PM - shower, but also decide to paint my nails.
1:30-3PM - Errands, including the tailor, the post office, the grocery store, and a half hour walk around the mall for exercise.
3PM-4PM - Pick up Alex at the airport. Stop for a little ice cream treat on the way home.
4PM-6PM - Cook. Cook. Cook...all that stuff I cleaned out from the pantry. I had about 4 pots going on the stove and a couple of things in the oven. Alex walked in and his eyes got really big...he said something along the lines of "I really like the second trimester".
6PM-8PM - Went to a Women in Aviation Chapter meeting at the airport.
8PM-9:15PM - Had dinner with Alex and a fellow Women in Aviation member.
9:15-12AM - Had some friends over...actually, this family I use to babysit for from when I was 12 till when I was about 18.

Now does the above picture make sense? And this started about 3 days ago and hasn't let up...I think I am having a small taste of what it is like to be on Speed.

Lots more to write about. Yesterday, I had a meeting with the university where I teach at in regards to fall and winter semesters. I'll right more details later. And I think I am going to do some traveling with Alex in the next few weeks...and...and...and...

I trust that even Tazmanian Devils get tired at some point?

Wow. I'm jealous of your energy. And I have no medical reason to be tired, only emotional reasons I guess. In fact, the other day when I was--yet again--sobbing in the shower, the refrain that kept coming out of my mouth ('cuz I talk outloud to myself sometimes) was "I'm so tired, I'm so tired, I'm so tired." Pathetic eh?
BUT, here's to YOU and your crazy energy! I hope it lasts and lasts!

Holy cow, can you send some of that energy my way? Wow, 2nd trimester already? So glad to hear you're feeling good and enjoying this time!

Enjoy all that energy that the 2nd trimester gives you! Wow! I can't believe what a busy day you had!

If you find out a biological reason for all your energy, I'd like to know! I think it affected me negatively during my pg, in the form of the worst panic attacks I've ever had in my life. I'm searching for a biological/hormonal reason, so I can prevent that in the future. Your Tazmanian Devil sounds much nicer than mine.
