The First Month of My Last Quiet Summer

I’m enjoying my last quiet summer.

I ignored my work emails for a month

Set up residence on my couch

Binge-watched Orange is the New Black,

Call the Midwife

(this week’s tears are proof that my hormones are finally kicking in)

Read 7 books, going on 8

(4 of them were kids’/YA books, but I’m still counting ’em)

Started writing 2 hours everyday

Because I finally readΒ On Writing,

And Stephen King told me so

Caught up on current events

Limited my Facebook time to Saturdays-only

Because I don’t have time to waste on

Other people’s opinions

Watched my belly grow

Bought bigger clothes

Stretched with YouTube yoga

Brought out the clicker and treats

To prepare the dogs for their new sibling

Panicked when my body hurt

Rejoiced at every kick, punch, and tumble

Stared at the crib because

Holy shit this is really happening

And I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing.
