In February, I definitely continue to deal with an elevated sense of anxiety, although I have to say that routine and support have been helpful with this particular issue. I am so grateful for the overwhelming love and care I received from my community, both here in Dallas and online. I cannot thank you enough for the understanding and judgment-free zone you have provided over the course of this last month.
I did enjoy some good entertainment this month. The Black Panther movie did not disappoint. And while I did manage to knock a few more books off of my TBR list, I also added more, and have more coming in this month as well. I realize that my reading will probably take a nose dive after the baby is born so I will try to soak up as much as I can this month.
And, yes, we did manage to squeeze in some celebration time for our relationship anniversaries this year. I didn’t write much about this experience, but we definitely managed to keep our tradition of getting blizzards at Dairy Queen! It was nice to look back on our road together with some happy nostalgia.
Now, onto the month of March!
- Moving along in my pregnancy. This month is completely unknown territory to me. My last pregnancy ended after 7 months, but we are working on the 8th month of pregnancy in March. It’s kind of odd to already have experience in labor and delivery, but have no idea what happens after 30 weeks. Hopefully, I will be learning a lot and be leaning on God through it all.
- Warmer weather and sunshine. Usually, in March, I start to plan and plant my garden for the year by picking out the vegetables, flowers, and herbs that I will grow in my outdoor garden. This year, I will probably delay this until the summer or have a late fall garden (although, I may wait until next year, altogether. At least, I have my indoor mint herb kit). Instead, though, I do hope to spend some time outside, enjoying the warmer weather, maybe bringing a book or two and a blanket.
- House Projects. Instead of a garden focus this year, we will be doing a lot of house projects. Chalk it up to nesting or whatever, but Michael and I decided that we are going to try to knock out as many of these to-dos on our list as possible this month. We already have some set in motion, and still, have to make final decisions on others. But I’m hoping that it will all be accomplished before our new arrival this Spring.
You guys, this month’s secondary theme is unknown territory. I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot in my videos, but it’s true. I am cautiously anticipating this month for sure!
