Rainy Day, Thyroid Issues, and Wishlist Wednesday

I just have to say... rainy weather + thyroid issues = sleepydon'twanttodoanything. Sigh.

View from my office window. Rainy.

I'm pretty sure I'm having some thyroid issues again. They haven't checked my levels since at least a month before S was born and I've been having a TON of trouble with fatigue and feeling like I'm getting sick (but then I don't). I'll get a full night's sleep on the weekend and then will be falling asleep on the couch at 3:00 in the afternoon. Grrr... It was all I could do to make myself walk at work yesterday. I wanted to sit like a blob and do nothing. But I did it! I did not, however, make it for an after-work run. Oops. I know I'm going to have to make an appointment and go to the doctor, but I've been putting it off because I feel like one more doctor bill might just make my head explode.

The last two nights, S has slept from 7:30 until 4 or 5 the next morning. Yay! I think the only things that wake him up are the need for a fresh diaper and the fact that his little hands get chilly. After you change him and feed him, he usually goes back to sleep for another couple of hours. He's been such an easygoing baby, I'm afraid what will happen if we have another one. My sister is still baffled by the fact that he "just falls asleep on his own." I didn't realize that was a novelty, but I'll take it.

Since we only have one car, Cody has to drop me off at the bus stop for work, so little man gets to go for a short ride every morning. He usually just coos and chatters quietly. If you woke me up at 5:30, strapped me into a seat, and took me out in the cold -I'd be pretty cranky. He just goes with it. I really hope he keeps this personality when he's a teenager :O).

Other than being able to snag some quick baby snuggles, the best part of my morning was when I got to work to find my boss left a Diet Coke on my desk. So sweet! I'm hoping the caffeine will give me the extra boost I need to me a productive human being today. We'll see.

Side note: don't judge me too harshly for blogging at work. We just finished our fiscal year and can't do anything for a few days while we wait for money. I'm not a horrible person...honest.

And last, but not least - a quick Wishlist Wednesday item:

ProForm PRO 2000 Treadmill

Isn't it beautiful? Normal price is $1999, but it's on sale right now for $1299. One of my must-have's for a treadmill is a 60" deck. I don't like feeling like I'm going to either kick the front or fall of the back. This one is 22" wide as well - for a little extra elbow room. Another one of my must-have's is a 350 lb. weight limit. Even when I was quite a bit slimmer, I prefer to have a treadmill with the higher weight limit so it is extra-stable and there isn't even a hint of wobble if I want to do sprints. Like my current treadmill, this one had the built-in speakers and fan, but this one also comes with a tablet holder and iFit compatibility so you can connect to Google maps and have the treadmill automatically simulate running all over the world. So fancy! This is definitely on the list of things for "when we become fabulously wealthy" ... or if I decide to sell that kidney.
