Today was a good day overall. It's a shame that with the stress and doctor's visits and infections that I haven't been able to enjoy a lot lately, but I did enjoy today - a LOT.

Katie was in a very good mood today and we went to the pool where we unexpectedly ran into a friend and her two daughters. It was a really nice change of pace to go to the pool with someone and have the chance to chat and hang out while the girls played in the water. Let me tell you - two and a half hours just flew by! I had a hard time getting Katie to leave, but she was overall ok with it (it was really hot, after all).

We came home and had a good nap - well, I wasn't able to sleep, but it felt really good to lie down, and I just reminded myself of all the people in the world that would kill to be able to lie down in the middle of the day. Then we had dinner with some friends from grad school and had a general good night.

Obviously, the antibiotics are starting to work as I'm beginning to feel human. Apparently, they won't make me feel "better" for about a week, but just feeling a bit better is a nice change of pace. I'm not as cranky and short-tempered and it's MUCH easier to move around, which makes life so much easier in general.

I did notice that my swimsuit from last year is a bit tight. The one I bought at the end of the season is a bit too big, and there's no way I'm crawling into that ugly black maternity suit until I have dressing for the pool is a bit of a challenge, but really no big deal. I'm at that weird point right now where you can't really tell if I'm fat or if there's something else going on. The uterus is creeping up and pushing my fat ol' belly out. It's funny because I often find myself rubbing my belly absentmindedly like I'm nine months pregnant. I have to stop and remind myself that it's just stomach right now :) I'm not ready to switch to maternity clothes yet, but I am in almost entirely elastic waists and stretchy stuff (yes, I'm very fashionable right now) - but it's summer and I don't care :)

Hope you're not melting in the heat and that you're enjoying your summer days.


  1. I wish I could blame it on a pregnancy, but there are so many times I just grab the stretchy waist-skirts in the closet, because it's just more comfortable! Have you tried those jersey knit skirts with the fold-ver waists? Sooooper comfortable and great for summer sweating!

  2. Ooohh...that sounds like a wonderful idea :) I will have to go shopping later.

    And, I agree...I dress like this when I can anyway :)

  3. It was great seeing you last night! Wish we had more time to talk. :-)
