37 Weeks

36 weeks plus a couple of days

This was taken over a week ago. I'm not going to lie, I picked an all black outfit and took a few steps back for purposes of flattery. What to say. Things are not pretty. I may look fine but really... I don't know what doesn't hurt, everything is uncomfortable, I move at a snail's pace... and it is a million degrees outside and a billion inside because we live on the 4th floor and it's nice and sunny and there is no air conditioning of course and...well, I won't tell you how I really feel.

The heat has melted my few remaining brain cells into a hot watery mess. I think nothing, I don't care about anything. The pillars of my day are sleeping, meals and naps. I am surprised daily at the presence of my other children and their supposed "needs". Why are they here? What do they want from me? Can't they see how completely occupied I am with that other thing? Why do I have to make food? Why are all the chairs so tiny? Where is dessert? Do I really need to get dressed?
Wha...?
Who...?
Oh, look! Chocolate!

Oh Dinka, you look amazing!! Your description of how you feel is so honest and great. This is a phase that will pass, but while it's the present, I will sympathize with and pray for you (because I've certainly been there and felt it!).

Any moment now... :) Can't wait to meet the newest Souzek. God bless you!

flattery or no flattery due to black clothing you look amazing! and yes I also remember those last few weeks when your mental capacity barely extends past the essentials such as sleep and food....and I lived in Ireland where the average temperature doesn't rise past 20 degrees during a heatwave! good luck in the next few days and weeks.
