The title basically says it all.
I’m almost 35 weeks pregnant, and the third trimester exhaustion has sunk into me big time. On top of that, the baby is in launch position, which is making my already incredible discomfort about 900 times more uncomfortable. It hurts to sit. It hurts to stand. It hurts to lay down. I am not sleeping. My joints are constantly dislocating… the list goes on. My last day at work is on July 24, after which point I will have three weeks before my c-section on August 17 to be miserable, lazy, and uncomfortable without having to expend a ton of energy I really don’t have at work.
Basically, what I’m saying is, I think I need to take a break from this website until I’m done with work on July 24. I just don’t have the energy or the brain power. I have a whole ton of reviews written and scheduled starting in August, which helps a ton… but I just don’t have it in me right now to balance my low energy and extreme discomfort and physical issues with work and reviewing. Right now, I read books, and my brain kind of says something like, “badub badub badub badub… drooool…” And what free energy I have right now is spent preparing stuff for said gestating wonder.
I feel like a complete slacker, and a huge letdown, but I’m really struggling right now. This is the first time (Wait, no, I had to take a break a while back when I was diagnosed with cancer again…) I’ve ever actually taken a break from reviewing, which makes me feel even worse. I didn’t want to have to do this, but here I am.
I’ll be back after I’m done with work on July 24th.
Thanks for understanding.
