I'm a planet.

I really love the movie Juno. Just last night I was telling Matt, "remember way back when we could go see movies in the theater?" Sigh. I do like movies, but with us trying to save money for baby we have resorted to reserving whatever happens to be available at the library.

And just like that my parents called today to see if we wanted to sneak out for a matinee of Invictus.

SUPER. excited.

We're heading out in just a few, and it will be nice to see a movie in the theater that I've really wanted to see.

On the training front...what training? What is this "working out" thing? MANNNNNN. I have been SOOOOOOOOOOOO tired after work that it's all I can do to sit in a chair with Bug and play play-doh, or, if I'm feeling really crap-tastic, I lay on the couch and we watch Elmo. I know. Not the best example, right? I keep telling myself this is temporary and if the weather wasn't so cold we'd be at the park at least. Sometimes I'll take him up to the library so he can play and I can sit, but it's been a rough week. I'm hoping I can hold on here the next 4 weeks of work. I have some serious AP grading to do this weekend and plan on timing that up with Bug's nap tomorrow. Those kids don't exactly get patient with their test grades, if you know what I mean! They're basically like a room full of me's. Very type-A. Very not understanding of what 9 months pregnant with a toddler means. (Which is good. Because they are 16.) So, I'm doing my best to keep up.

Today, however, was my return to the pool, in a ridiculously inappropriately miscast Baywatch red suit. I was so afraid I'd see someone I knew at the pool, besides my awesome preggy friends JenC and Bridget of course! They came all the way to my side of town to swim again, which was really nice of them. I was a little worried about what a month-hiatus or so, plus massive extra poundage would do. My upper body was all, "HUH?!" for the first 300 yards or so, and I had a really rough time catching my breath, but other than that it felt great! We did about 1200 yards which was all fine by me. And then, we hit the Original House of Pancakes again for PANCAKES. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM PANCAKES.

I know, I know--no pics = it didn't happen. But I'm sorry. I AM SO NOT GOING THERE. There will be NO documentation of me in this suit going on 9 months pregnant.

I am happy to report I was still able to flip turn! It wasn't pretty of course, but I could do it. Boo-ya!

Okay, off to a movie for the first time in maybe 6 months or so--yahoo! On tap this week will be prenatal yoga, some dreadmill walking, and trying not to fall asleep at my desk again during lunch.

I watched Juno for the first time last night, and CRIED my eyes out. UGGGH! It was such a cute movie though!

What? A movie date? People have those any more?

I tried to comment on your last post but Blogger thumbed its nose at me: missing finger parts suck. Loud mouth nurses aren't kind either.

Nice nice swim! That's my daily mat leave plan - hit the pool everyday. And you can't be that huge if you're still doing flip turns.

Did you like Invictus? I've lurked here for ages, but just had to say, I hope you liked it. As a rugby player (and triathlete), it was so good to go watch my sport on the big screen as part of a movie. We definitely liked it.

i can't believe you can still make flip turns when you're 9 months pregnant. wow, i can barely get a handle on them now. of course, i have been mistaken for pregnant...

You looked awesome in the pool yesterday and as usual, I couldn't keep up! I'm proud of our flip turns even if they weren't pretty. I missed the wall a couple of times, but I'm blaming it on being in a new pool. ; ) And, of course pancakes after rocks! The morning with you and Bridget was definitely the highlight of my whole day (whole week). Thanks!

Just a few more weeks for both of us! I'm popping out of my non-maternity XL swimsuit, but maybe I'll get back to the pool this week. I love how positive you are about it -- then again, I don't get pancakes afterwards!
