Things Got Better
You know what’s great about life, or at least about my life, even when I’m feeling crappy and pregnant 89% of the time? Every time I have a really bad day, I usually have a good day after that.
In fact yesterday, on top of reading so many encouraging comments from readers who’ve experienced these same feelings of worthlessness I have, I actually went for FOUR straight hours without any nausea!!! Either it’s because my body works in waves and after a really bad wave of hormones there is a brief intermission OR it’s because I made chocolate chip cookies for my Dad for father’s day and eating cookie dough is a great way to fend off nausea. Right up there with McDonald’s cheeseburgers and fries and ice cream. I know! I’m going to gain 500 pounds! But on some days, when you’re just so sick of feeling sick, 500 pounds doesn’t seem like the worst thing that could happen.
So yeah, I had a good day yesterday! I owe everyone who commented and emailed me a huge thank you. I don’t know what I’d do without you all. Probably feel worthless.
I also finally finished up the baby bird painting. It’s a little flat and the branches look like nothing that would grow in nature but I consider it a major accomplishment since the day before yesterday I thought I’d never touch a paintbrush again.
p.s. I threw in the “No Barking” and the girl with the Rainbow-Brite hair picture because they made me laugh. Just a few details that made yesterday a better day. I love a little laugh.
