Hey There, 2AM!

I have insomnia. Never in my life have I had trouble sleeping. With my other pregnancies, I was so exhausted, I would lay down on any random floor and fall asleep. Not this time around. I am asleep, business as usual, every night, no problem. But then 2am rolls around and it is like someone slapped my brain. I lay there WIDE awake for a couple hours until I can get back to sleep. So incredibly frustrating. And the real annoying part is that I never get tired enough during the day to nap, so I’m just not sleeping. If I didn’t know any better, I would think someone was drugging me with speed or something. Really praying I don’t crash today at work.

The other day, I was sitting behind my desk when one of my seventh-grade boys walked in. With a very concerned look on his face, he says to me, “Mrs. Frey, I think you should know there’s a rumor going around that you’re pregnant.” I couldn’t do anything but just stare at him. I saw this kid last week?! Was he serious? I looked at my other student in the group sitting at his desk and he just rolled his eyes and said, “Yeah, I’m pretty sure she told us that a while ago.” Ha!! We’ll just say this particular student is in his own world sometimes. When I stood up and showed him my belly he yelled, “What?! When the heck did that happen?!” Oy. At least the gossip about me going around is actually true. And at least my students care enough to talk about me. 😉

Interesting Combination

On Friday, I took banana bread with me to work to eat as my mid-morning snack. In between classes, I ran to the teacher’s lounge to heat it up, slapped some butter on it and ran back to my office. As I was working with my student, I nibbled on it. The banana bread smelled and tasted a little weird. I kept thinking, “Has this bread gone bad already?!” I didn’t see any mold and it didn’t taste moldy, so I ate almost the whole thing. At lunch time, I went again to the teacher’s lounge to heat up my leftover hamburger. As it was heating up, I got the bun out, as well as the mayo to spread on it. Only when I opened the tupperware, I found butter. And that’s when I realized that I had put the mayo on my banana bread. Wow. So gross.

This prego brain is taking me full force. It’s a wonder I am still able to drive. 😉

Sleep Deprivation

The other night, the hubs and I were at the mall on a date and the woman in front of us on the elevator announced, “Don’t ever expect to sleep ever again”. I kind of laughed at this and told her, “Oh, this is our third, so we haven’t been sleeping for a while now”. She was astounded, since she only has one daughter and wanted to know how it was possible to have more than one kid as her toddler hadn’t been sleeping lately and she didn’t think she could have an infant right now. To be honest, I don’t think I’m really ready for the night interruptions again, but at some point, it’s just craziness and you buckle down and deal with it. Because like everyone says, it’s all over before you know it. I am REALLY praying this kiddo is a good sleeper though because I DO NOT do well with no sleep. Feel free to send up some prayers on my behalf. 🙂

How To Set Your Wardrobe Up For Constant Success


1. Clean it out.

Go through your clothes one by one. Make sure to take each one out and try it on. If it is too big or too small or has a weird cut and doesn’t fit “just right”, put it in a giveaway pile. If it’s something that you haven’t worn in over a year, put it in a giveaway pile.

This will help make it clearer to look through when putting an outfit together. If there are pieces that you’re not sure of, put in a “save for later” pile and revisit in a couple months. If you didn’t think about them or don’t miss them, then they’re not worth saving. (Continue reading over at…)

Pregnant And Dumb





(Shirt: Plato’s Closet  Skirt: GAP  Shoes: HandMeDown)

I know it’s a thing to lose some concentration when you’re pregnant, but let me tell you, in this case, the third time is NOT the charm. I swear that with this pregnancy I am ridiculously dumb. I am normally the kind of person who never forgets anything and lately I can not seem to get anything right. Here are two examples:

1. I had a coupon for a chicken entree for only $2.14, so my husband and I headed to Pei Wei for a delicious lunch. When we got there, I showed said coupon to the employee. She looked at me confused and mentioned that she had never seen this coupon. Upon further inspection, she announced, “Oh, this is for Pick Up Stix.” Duh. In my defense, they both start with a “P” and both sell Chinese food. (Disclaimer: My husband would like you all to know that this is something I would do even if I wasn’t pregnant.)

2. We were at Goodwill and halfway through shopping, my three-year-old announces that he has to pee. As much as I love this store, it is completely lacking in restrooms. So, I take my son out to our car to pee, throwing my purse and keys in the front seat while he goes. We go back inside to buy our items and on the way out, I can not find my keys. I start to panic that I didn’t pick them up from the car because I KNOW that I locked the door. When we get to the car, I look in and see my keys sitting there. I am about to call my husband to come rescue us, when I just happen to check the door. And what do you know, it was unlocked. Yup, unlocked with the keys just sitting there. Parked on the corner of a busy intersection. I am so thankful no one else noticed.

Yeah, let’s hope all my intellect comes back in the next five months ’cause boy I sure do miss it.

I am on week three of vacation and it has been lovely. It has been so nice to enjoy the holidays and still have another week to recuperate and relax. Especially since I got a lot of the “things I need to get done” last week. It’s funny how vacations as a mom turn into “complete everything on the to-do list” when it used to be full of hanging out with friends and shopping. I am crazy thankful for the time to just be with the boys though and hang out and do chores during normal hours. Sorta funny to think some people get to do this every day. 😉
