I just looked at the last post I wrote, and shook my head sadly. I've never gone that long without a post here, and I really can't explain what took me so long to come back.
Could it be I have other blog obligations?
Could it be that I was literally sick for two months?
Or that a (hitherto unknown to me) gallstone attack put me in the hospital for four days, and almost triggered preterm labor at 30 weeks?
Could it be that I have a busy 1st grader and am tired and exhausted in my last trimester?
Could it be that I am just damn lazy?
Probably a combination of all five, my friends.
The less said about the hospital stay, the better. I've never been in the hospital for that long, and I never want to be in there for that long again.
I learned two things:
1)Taking a shower with an IV hooked up to you is a pain in the ass.
2) Even if your nurse is a crazy right-wing nut, DON'T DISAGREE WITH HER AND PISS HER OFF.
Of course I wasn't stupid enough to piss her off, but a perverse part of me wanted to, and then thought the better of it since I was pretty helpless and weak. My least favorite nurse out of all of them was of course assigned to me for a full 10 hour shift. Of course. The really cool ones? Four hours at most.
And that's pretty much the way my luck has been running.
All I can give as an excuse is that my life has sucked, my pregnancy is kicking me in the ass, and most days I'm down for a two hour nap.
Oh, and of course it stands to reason that with all the crap going on, every weekend for the next month is booked solid with parties, carnivals, and various social gatherings which we are obligated to attend.
So, I don't know how soon I'll make it back here, but I have one plea for you.
We are still fighting about a damn name for this baby, and I want some suggestions from the peanut gallery, since books with 6,000 baby names still haven't produced a winner.
It can't start with a P, and we prefer it to be limited to two or three syllables.
Thanks, and I promise I'll write sooner rather than later.
