I have been on the couch, in virtually the exact same position, for 17 days.
17 freaking days!
And I'm not complaining, really, I'm not.
I'm just sayin'. That's a long farging time to be in one spot.
I finally started sleeping upstairs a few nights back and while it's taking some adjusting to as my newly shortened muscles stretch and find comfort, it's lovely to be back in my comfy bed. Beside my husband. I was lonely sleeping downstairs without him.
I also held Austin last night for the first time which was completely blissful. I laid a pillow across my tummy and Brad placed him on my lap. He snuggled against my shoulder like he always does and stared at my face. That has been the hardest part about this whole thing, the not making out with my kids on a regular basis. We sat for several minutes together until he decided to hop down. The hopping down part? Not so comfy but the shoulder snuggles? Heavenly.
I think I have officially seen every episode of House Hunters and House Hunters International. I never thought I could grow tired of HGTV but indeed I can.
I also took my first shower today which felt like the best thing ever. And you know how you have your very own shower routine? Like first you wash here and then you do that? Mine is all kinds of jacked up now that I have new parts. It's going to take some getting used to.
That is also not a complaint. I'm just sayin'.
The weather outside is killing me with it's gorgeousness. I'm itching to be out there in the sun but I know that if I can continue to do what I'm told a bit longer , I'll be feeling the warm breeze in no time.
My girlfriend Kelly was here all weekend and it was lovely except for all the times she made me laugh. Belly bursting laughter is no fun when you're belly has literally already been busted. She is the sweetest thing and took such good care of my family. I'm lonely today without her.
Tiffani has my little ones today and called to report Sienna's latest: she apparently fell off a chair and exclaimed "Oh! I just hurt my nuts!" Apparently there is a gross anatomy lesson in our future.
Did i mention that I have the best friends on the planet? Just today, Jen came at 7 this morning to get my kids ready for school. She made breakfast, did hair, and started laundry. She also ran to WinCo and Costco to restock my shelves. Lindsay called to make sure I didn't need anything and offered to give my kids rides to school. Tiffani has had Austin since 8:30 this morning and picked up Sienna after preschool and kept her for the afternoon. Tamara called to make arrangements for Austin tomorrow. Megan brought me a delicious lunch and Amy is on the books for bringing in dinner tonight. Seriously, I am astounded. I love them all so much and if any of them ever decide to have themselves gutted like a fish, I'm their girl.
Gotta run. House Hunters is coming on!
