I'm very glad that Friday has arrived, this has been a busy week and it will be nice to have at least a little bit of down-time. I think I may have overdone it a bit with the Zumba yesterday because I've been getting these weird nerve twinges in my feet since then. It's almost like the sensation you get when you hit your funny-bone, but much more mild. Every time I step down in a certain way, I get this kind of zing down near where my toes meet my foot, it doesn't really hurt, but it's annoying and I'd like for it to go away because it makes walking and standing a bit uncomfortable. I'm not sure what I can do though because most everything I've been reading about pregnancy and feet mentions soreness and swelling, but nothing about nerve-type pain.
Tomorrow is a big day because we take our first baby-related class. We've decided to take three classes before the baby comes, a general parenting class, a childbirth class, and a child-specific first aid class. Tomorrow is the parenting class and it runs for almost the whole day, from the early morning until late in the afternoon. I've never done anything like this before and I'm wondering what the usual protocol is for classes of this sort. I'm thinking of bringing along a notebook and pen so I can take notes, but they'll probably have handouts and things that cover all of the course information. Still, I'd rather feel prepared than not, so I'll probably bring a notebook along anyway, that way if I get bored at least I'll have something to doodle hilarious drawings of babies on. I'm curious to see what sort of other people are signed up for the class. I'm sure my husband will be concerned about being the oldest father there, but I doubt he will be, so many people are waiting to have kids these days, I don't think it's as uncommon as he thinks it is.
After our class is done with there will probably be more cleaning and organization in store for us. It seems like there's a never-ending amount of stuff that needs going through, once we get through one pile of stuff, we realize there's another pile of stuff. It's funny because we really don't have that much stuff, our house is fairly clutter-free, so I can understand how the people on programs like Hoarders get so easily overwhelmed by just the idea of cleaning and organizing their things. Even when you don't have much, it's still a big undertaking that takes a lot of time and effort. Once the heat-wave is over with, my husband will probably think about getting started on tearing out the carpet and getting the flooring put in. Hopefully the weather cooperates.
My husband has a new entry too, it's funny how I seem to learn a lot of new things about him when he writes in this blog. Even after being together for seven years, there are still surprises.
