There are a lot of things that I took from granted, and now, since I have been on bedrest for over a month, I have realized it. I miss a lot of things:
- Going to church.
- Having a reason to put on shoes.
- Going to a store (any store! even grocery shopping!)
- Walking around my yard, just because.
- Walking, in general
- Feeding Percy
- Fixing my hair
- Wearing clothes that do not resemble pajamas.
- Cleaning (I NEVER thought I would miss that, but I do)
- Sitting– on the couch, in a chair, anywhere!
- Making the bed.
This is not an exhaustive list, just some of the everyday things that I did without thinking, and I now miss. But-I know that it will all be worth it in the end, and I will soon go back to taking all of these things for granted (although I hope that this experience will make me a little more grateful).
Not much to report today. Today was just another quiet day at home on the couch. I did start on my 5th blanket. This one is pink, and will be for a girl I teach with. I will post a pic when I get done.
Positives for the day:
Daddy and Jake fixed our roof that was leaking.
Percy got to run all day-he is so cute.
Jake hung the new roman shade for the nursery. I think I am going to decorate it with some cute ribbon.
Jake was home all day.
Well, I am now 28 weeks pregnant, and I had a doctor’s appointment today. Everything is good and the same, I am still on bedrest. The doctor told me she wants to get at least 8 more weeks-and I do, too! So please pray that Josie continues to stay in there for at least 8 more weeks.
Positives for the day-
I got to get out of my house-yay!
I got to eat in a restaurant.
I got good news at the doctor.
The roman shades for the nursery came today :).
Well, today has been another good day. I finished the blanket I was working on for Jennifer Bell today. I have now crocheted 4 blankets, total, since I have been on bed rest. I am planning to do at least 2, maybe 3, more. Here are my positives for the day:
I got to go outside.
I got see Casey, my sister.
I finished a blanket.
I found a really cute rug for the nursery.
I am excited about tomorrow, because I get to leave my house to go to the doctor. I never thought I would be so excited about going to the doctor, but it is a great change of scenery, and plus, I have a lot of questions for her tomorrow!
So, I have had a lot of fun with this blog today. I have decided I am going to post my positives for the day. I am trying to think as positively as I can, and today was a great day!
The nursery is polka dotted!
I got to sit outside w/Jake today while he grilled and it smelled so good!
I shopped online today, and it was fun 🙂
I learned how to post this blog.
I got to see my mom, Mrs. Carol, Shshr, and Nana.
Well, the nursery is all painted! My mom and Mrs. Carol came today and painted polka dots on the walls. I love it! It looks perfect.
