I am suddenly part cat September 6, 2007

But no, not the part where you have superb eyesight and amazing agility.  Just the part where all you do is sleep.  Joe and I just got back from a fabulous couple of days in Galena, IL.  We stayed in a beautiful B&B, and ate lots of good food, and sat in the hot tub (but don’t worry — not too hot, since apparently that’s another thing us pregnant ladies can’t do).  But mostly we slept.  9-10 hours per night, and then I would take a nap in the day. On Tuesday, we were going to go to a really cool state park in Iowa, with caves and nature trails, etc.  Then I went back to the room to get my flashlight for the caves, and never quite made it out again.  I twas pretty amazing how much I could sleep.  Today, when we got home, I started putting away my things from the trip, and thought, “Oh, I’ll just rest my eyes for a sec” and woke up an hour later.  Joe said to me, incredulously, “Did you really sleep?”  When I replied in the affirmative, he said “That’s starting to get pretty impressive.”  You know that when JoeKim is impressed by sleep habits, you have a problem.  I’m not sure how to work a full 8 hours tomorrow.  And I’m certainly unclear about how my friends who have 2-year-olds or 5-year-olds or any other type of thing like that and are pregnant manage to stay upright.  Tomorrow at work I’m thinking of resorting to the old Tom and Jerry tricks — either a) propping my eyes open with toothpicks, or b) buying glasses and painting eyeballs on them.  I’m sure either one will totally fool my boss in our 8:30 staff meeting, right??
