I can't sleep...

My joints and muscles were aching and my mind was racing plus Wayne needed to get a good night's sleep so I thought I would come online to read myself asleep.

Life has been kinda weird lately - I feel like I am stuck in this warp. I have been feeling tired but non-nausous lately but have continued to take it very easy around the house. I feel guilty that I am not pulling enough weight around the house, but I have to reason that I am better of doing things in moderation and feeling good rather than overworking myself and feeling terrible.

I have a few things on my plate to get me out of the house - playgroup (actually, that started today). A friend and I are organising I am doing Creche at church on Sundays. Love the kids but had an incident of Jalisa getting jealous of my paying attention to others during the story and she starting hitting to get my attention...tricky situation since the kids don't understand that she does not totally *get* how to handle that jealousy emotion the right way and I was able to get her to apologise or anything and I hadn't even thought of a backup plan if something like this ever happened. One parent offered to have her sit on her lap but I will have to think about it as I don't think Jay would like that idea.

I am getting to a stage where I need some looser clothing but I don't have the energy to make anything. I haven't touched the SM in a LONG time - I can't think about that right now. Maybe by the time I get around to feeling like my old self, it will be time to be making the full on preggo clothes, like these offerings from Japanese Weekend:

I have all the stuff - jeans, fabric, elastic - I just need some energy.


  1. Oh Marie, I can so sympathise with your feelings. I have not been motivated around the house or with sewing since being pregnant either - and I am not even sick!
    Now at 18 weeks I feel like I have turned the corner and actually went to the fabric shop today.
    I hope you are feeling better about everything soon.
    I know that this age is very difficult with toddlers understanding their emotions, I hope youe creche time is better soon.

  2. Marie, glad you are feeling better. I agree take it easy while you can. Can't really offer any help with the jealousy, sorry.

  3. Marie - I hope that you get the enegy soon - I want to see those clothes that you are going to make - what is the site for some inspiration

  4. Kylie- it is called Japanese Weekend
