Thank You, Nana!
I got out tonight! Nana came by to take me grocery shopping. I was beyond excited to get out. If anyone had told me three weeks ago I would be thrilled to go grocery shopping instead of looking at it as a chore I'd have laughed at them.
The last laugh is on me, though, isn't it? ;o)
Amy texted today to find out how I was doing and I'm afraid I whined at her. She's a good sport though, and I knew she could take it so I let her have it. Thanks, Amy!
After a good pep-text I sat and gave it some thought. There is a lesson here for me and I think I need to learn it. Sometimes I'm hardheaded and stubborn but I know there's a message here. Although I think I can do it all (okay, know ;oP), I need to learn how to ask for help and to rely on others sometimes. I think it's all about me learning to ask when I need help and to accept that others don't find me a burden.
I had my TJ's list ready and was so happy to get out for a bit. The foot starts to throb and ache when I'm up for too long and I felt my toes starting to swell. All of which tells me I need to continue to take it easy and that it's going to take a while to get back to 100%. :sigh: Did I mention I have a tendency to be a bit impatient?? :eye roll:
Lily goes to spend the week with Lissie next week, and I'll be honest, I'm really worried. She's my arms and legs right now. She played with the "magic wand" today--the one that made objects on the carpet disappear and makes a loud noise. She cleaned up the living room and the kitchen floor. She lets Holly out and in and out and in and chases down Ellie for me. She gets me water and and carries items to and from the table for me. I truly have no idea what I'm going to do without her. :oS
Actually, I do know. I'm contacting Angelica and Alex and seeing if I can have either of them from 10-noon in the mornings. That's what I'm doing. :oS
Bitty is going to have so much fun! She'll be with Ella--her best friend in the entire world--she'll have JFHD (otherwise known as Junk Food Heaven Day) and trips to the pool (where she can now swim and play with Ella) and adventures galore. I'm so happy she gets that reprieve from me and the cabin fever we have going on.
1. Did I tell you we have tadpoles in Hannah's waterlily?
2. Did I tell you B had finished the new home for the waterlily?
3. Getting out of the house! Woo hoo!
4. TJ's. I love I can get a cart FULL of organic produce and dairy and pay less than I would at the other grocery.
5. B had an easy time with the girls for bed tonight.
6. Speaking of Brien, let's give the man some props--he's working all day, coming home and then cooking and cleaning and putting the kids to bed (oh, and taking care of my needs as well).
