I hate being stuck on this couch.
Friday I had a vacation day from work, so just rested. I got up for a while and went to get a haircut. I was looking SOOO frumpy and hadn't had a cut since April. I feel much better with a neat cut, and it will be easier for me to manage when he comes. And I'll hopefully look cuter in all those pictures!
Of course, sitting up long enough to drive over there, get snipped, and come home left my legs looking like tree trunks.
Saturday morning I went for a pedicure. My feet hurt so much and the skin feels like it's being stretched in the worst way. I can't imagine how it's STILL stretching... my feet have gone from 7 1/2 to at least 9 1/2 (haven't checked in a while, and all I can wear are a big pair of flip flops). Anyway, the foot and leg massage felt really great. And my toes look cute.
Stopped by the farm stand on the way home and bought some gorgeous apples, corn, a butternut squash, and some plums for my mom. All the local veggies looked so delicious, but I resisted buying more because I know I'm not going to be able to cook much. I had a real hankering for soup, because there's a chill in the air here. So I made corn chowder for dinner -- fresh corn, fresh little red potatoes (from the same farmer last week), nice smoky bacon. Yummmm. For dessert I made a simple apple crisp, which was divine.
Of course, I paid for it last night. Couldn't sleep because my hands hurt so badly from the chopping and cooking.
3 more days of work, then I'm done until late March. I don't think I'm going to be able to handle more than 3 hours actually at the office each day -- will work from home with my feet up for the rest. But I am SOOOOOO glad to be done with work! Now I just have to keep from going crazy between now and when he comes... not due until the 29th!
