My sleep has been broken up in strange new ways this late in pregnancy. Sleeping through the night isn't an option, but I am kind of enjoying the late night wakefulness. I think it helps that I don't have to worry about work or something first thing in the morning. It seems that I wake up each night at around 4am and have some weird random thought to ponder.
Last night, after dreaming that I quit a job because they wouldn't let me wear a cheer leading uniform (????, let's not investigate the deeper meaning of that dream), I woke up. After a few moments of puzzling over my dream my mind began to wonder about all of the necessities in my house and what is actually necessary.
First my mind ran over things like the fridge, the washer/dryer, the oven, the cell phone, the computer. All of them are not necessary, but they really do make my life a lot easier and I would truly miss these items if they were gone.
Next I began to wonder about the secondary items. Things like the microwave, blender, toaster, etc. I think that I have spent more time in the past year moving these items from one home to another than actually using most of them.
Finally I think that there are many items that I could completely do without. For instance the TV. I really don't need it and I am happier when it's off. Eric and I do enjoy watching movies, but we could do that on the computer. The curling iron and hair dryer I think I use maybe 4 times a year tops, yet I still keep them. I was also wondering about the microwave. I use it, but not very much.
What could you easily do without?
