five minute friday: whole


I don't have a whole lot of time.  Not because of the timer I have sitting next to me.  But because my daughter just went down for her nap.  And I've been dreaming of a nap for the past week.  You see, I'm a whole 38 weeks preggers and this nesting thing has got a hold of me big time.  So I haven't had a whole lot of time to "rest" like they tell me to.

And I'm not patient with this whole pregnant-thing anymore.  I want to have my baby.  And it seems I've been doing a whole lot of complaining, too.  I'm pretty sure it's annoying to whole lot of people.  To hear me complain.  Again.  And again.  And....again.

But it is what it is.

Oh, and one more thing.  I want my whole body back to myself.  I'm tired of sharing it.  Please and thank you very much.

What is 5 minute Friday?
Let your words and your story breathe today. Take five minutes and just write without criticizing your words, yourself or your story. Just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

  1. Write your words without editing them.
  2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to come and share their unedited stories too.
  3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and compliment the person who shared right before you.
Easy peasy. OK, are you ready?  It's your turn now.  Show us what you've got!
