This is one factor I didn't anticipate in switching to the airlines--the amount of time John has to spend on the computer--figuring out his schedule, bidding for his next schedule, shuffling his current schedule, checking to see if there are any changes, etc. And, when you have only one, it is a pain in the mommy blogging ASS. Although, this week he's been doing our taxes and getting documents together for our mortgage refinancing on the computer, so I guess I can't really complain. In fact, I'm downright thankful for all he's taken on, because if there is one thing in the world I hate more than vomit, it is doing taxes. But, hi! It's good to see y'all again!
So, guess who's a big freak? Come on! Just guess. Who among us is a total hypochondriac freak? Who would rush off to the urgent care center because she has a sore throat with white spots on her tonsils? Who? Not me. No, definitely not me. I would never do that. I would know that it is just an upper respiratory thing and not strep. Because I am not a freak. No, really. I'm not.
The bottom line is: pregnancy really doesn't agree with my body. My immune system apparently plummets to the lowest possible point, my hips seem to become disconnected from my body, I'm cold all the time, my ass hurts continually and I pull muscles just walking. Ahhhhh....yes. It is a lovely sight over here. Especially when you factor in the potty training debacle. Oh yes. Nothing but loveliness around here. As for that, I have quit. Just given up. We're back to diapers.
God, I miss wine.
So, since I have to find other, nonalcoholic forms of entertainment (lame), look what Becca and I did:I've always wanted to start seeds inside and then tranfer them outside when it is warm enough, but I have never attempted it. I am not sure if it will even work, but we planted oregano, basil, rosemary, lavender, delphiniums and sweet peas.
And look what is about to bloom outside. I am so excited to see signs of spring, even if it means ants in the house and the sound of lawn mowers disturbing our upper respiratory-hazed naps.
