Frankie say RELAX

I'm staying home from work today. It was going to be a super slow day in the office, I have a midwife apt at 2, and both Jerad and my boss told me I should relax for a day. You don't have to ask me twice!

Except... maybe I need instructions on how to do that?

Its not 7 yet and I've made breakfast, washed 2 loads of laundry, checked and replied to my work and personal emails, kissed my husband goodbye and sent him out the door with a delish lunch and snacks, caught up on all of the blogs I read, and was all ready to clean the bathrooms and wash the floor in the kitchen.

WTF is wrong with me?

I need to learn to enjoy this babyless time where if I want to I can sleep in and there is no one that needs anything from me. Sometimes I think "why get used to relaxing/sleeping in/taking it easy now because in a few months it won't even be possible. I don't want to know what I'm missing." Er, I think that logic is kind of flawed and its probably acceptable at 30 weeks pregnant to not get down on my hands and knees and scrub baseboards on my day off.

SO.... I'm going back to bed.

Take that OCD! Now hopefully I can actually sleep for another hour or so and not dream about baseboards/floors/bathrooms and all the other crap on my to-do list :)
