ceasing-ish to be idol.


dear massively full laundry baskets, extra long work to-do lists, random side scrapbooking projects, overgrown eyebrows, empty fridge, shamefully-dusty scriptures, packed g-mail inbox, birthday thank-yous that have yet to be all finished/mailed, angieinshape blog, bathrooms that desperately need to be scrubbed, and mail that hasn’t been checked in a week,

i hereby vow to stop ignoring you.

{confession: pregnancy related nausea is making me & my sweet side-kick supa lazy.}

but: we are tired of watching CNN & a bug’s life alongside our respective barf/popcorn bowls, in our pajamas all day.

SO here’s to a [happy] and PRODUCTIVE september...
{1.5 days late}

all my love,
angie

Just so you don't feel bad, I'm publicly confessing that I laid in bed this morning and watched a movie. Post vacation stress syndrome. Not really...a RARE night of insomnia caught up with me. Good luck, but don't overdo it! Oh, and P.S., no pressure but we need to go b-day shopping!

Love the letter. Good luck!

Lisa said...

I hear ya. We clean out the junk room yesterday. It took 5 months to get too, but now I'm at the beginning of being on a roll.

Good Luck and keep it up!

Hey you, simma down girl. No need to push the envelope(spoken by one who sat around a few child- bearing years)... you could get in the middle of a load of laundry .... and,as the bumper sticker says "nausea happens", putting you woefully behind again. So till that goes away, hold tight and enjoy the gratitude of "the bow" being so easy going and Myron too. I can testify that it will all still be there when you are in your 2nd trimester. Promise. Love you blog, thanks for twinkle in your eye!

"overgrown eyebrows"

that is prolly one of the number one reasons why i LOVE you. you throw in "overgrown eyebrows" and i laugh hysterically.

i miss you.

you crack me up.

Em said...

Hope you feel better soon. Feeling sick and feeling like you have to clean house isn't fun. I hear ya on the eyebrows and laundry... Where does all that laundry come from?

Stephanie said...

i should have known that even your dirty laundry would be organized, labeled, and cute. whatever happened to massive piles on the laundry room floor? there you go again ~~ raising the bar. i hope you feel a little better soon.

Coree Adams said...

Poor thing, although...you do have every right to take it easy. Take care my friend, I miss you and your trusty side kick TREMENDOUSLY!

Kaelene said...

I say play the pregnancy card as long as you need to . . . you'll be a running crazy momma of 2 before you know it!
And, you are probably the only one who notices the eyebrow thing!
♥ ya!

Kaytie Brown said...

Ok so I was totally gonna comment on the "barf/popcorn bowl" part too :) MAN Ang!! I hope the barf part goes away REAL soon!! LOVE YA!!!

kacee said...

Ick! Sorry you are feeling gross, have you tried a fresh lime (sprite with lime) from Sonic? These are a must when I am pregnant, the BEST help with the pukishness.

I used to send Mike to Parker's drive-in (any former AF-er should know of it)EVERY night when pregnant with Adilynn. He would walk-in and they would kindly say "large fresh lime, is that all?" Poor guy, but seriously they work wonders! Good luck!

Marisa and Rob Rasmussen said...

Sorry your not feeling good :( I love how you have basket's for the laundry!! :) I might have to steal that idea!! :) If you need anything just let me know. :) Hope you feel better! Hopefully we will see you at church

The Wizzle said...

Seriously, pregnancy just makes us lazy! With good reason, though. I could have written a very, very similar letter myself this week, although substituting massively TMI late-pregnancy ailments for the barf bowl...

Anyway, best of luck tackling your to-do list. Take it easy and if you accomplish one thing per day then I say you're doing pretty darn good!

Marilyn said...

kind of a weird visual-barf/popcorn bowl.... BTW I LOVE your latest song download. One of my all time fav movies-Dan in Real Life. In fact, I think I'll go watch it now!!! Remember-you're not doing nothing-you're growing another life!! and that's doing something great.

Tanya, Coy, & Kids said...

Hey Girl - CONGRATS! You just take care of yourself, you're busy building another baby :) :) And ps. your music makes me happy.

becky said...

i don't even have an excuse, but my laundry is just as full as yours... and i only do MY laundry. that's bad.

Julie said...

SO inspiring! Amazing how pregnancy can kick ya under the table huh? You amaze me girl!

Sassy said...

EVEN YOUR PILES ARE CUTE!!!!!! You still put me to shame...I really hope you start feeling better real soon...but seriously I am not even pregnant (just look like it) and I am still in laundry hell!!!!!!

Emily, Julia, and Annie said...

So I decided that you, me, Becky, and Ginny should perhaps pay Julie and SBE for working today. Because we mostly ate donuts. And talked. And all learned interesting things from each other.

sandalloons44 said...

oh so sorry girly but, do take it easy. You have an excuse right?
I dont' like the nausea at first.
with my 1st and 3rd that was yucky, 1st thing in the morning. With my 2nd I was from 16 weeks on very sick with IV"S in my arms at home until about the last month.
then throughout the whole delivery, nausea came again to remind me........it is the end of this. LOL

take care of yourself.

shabbyscrapper said...

"you make me want to be a better man (ok...woman)" (what movie?)
but seriously, i don't think anyone but you can make morning sickness so poetic! hang in there...the best is yet to come.
love ya!

MERRIANNE said...

Too bad about the Pregnancy Sickness.....I remember each time I was pregnant I would feel so tired like all day until about my 5th month. Then I felt better & more energized. I hope you will feel better soon!!! ♥

Natalie said...

You get more comments than anyone I've ever seen. It must be nice to be you. You just can't help it that you're so darn cute. :) Good luck with catching up. You've inspired me.

Rebellious Roberts said...
