Been alone. Brushed my hair before evening. Slept in a dry bed. Driven. Hung out with friends alone. Or at all, actually.

I've had two orgasms. I strongly recommend them. They make life better. :)

Same! Oh my goodness car rides. I forgot how terrible they are with a baby. I honestly feel like a tiny piece of my soul dies every time he cries in the car.

 

I haven't:

 

cared a smidge about my cats

taken a bath

felt like being social

stopped staring at my baby (okay. slight exaggeration, but not much. I always grab my book when  I go to nurse him and I never ever end up reading it! He's too beautiful)


girl reading.gif absolutely in love with boy modifiedartist.gif.  DD loveeyes.gif (11/06) and DS luxlove.gif (08/11), and someone new in July stork-suprise.gif!

 Me, too! So I'm going to get it cut. It stays tangled and wadded all the time, what's the point? If it's shorter, it's sooo much easier!

I'm looking over these posts and actually feel pretty darn good about all i've done since having Finn!  LOL!  I've definitely watched shows (how else are you guys getting thru these middle of the night feedings!?) and read magazines, gone out by myself, driven.  Ha!  I've even (finally) had an orgasm!  lol.gif

 

But the me time is really lacking.  My only time alone is in the shower, which has to be kept short and is usually interrupted by a toddler needing to use the potty.  Having one bathroom in the house SUCKS.  Even moreso now!

 

re:haircuts -- I'm not about to cut my hair at all!!!  I like being able to pull it back.  when my hair is short and I can't get a good ponytail, I get very frustrated.  I'm mad I have bangs even!!  They just won't growwww!!  Besides, in a few months, when I CAN dress up and go out, I love having longer hair.  So if you have doubts about cutting your hair, don't -- wait!!

I think I am going to get some of mine cut off.  I would never get it cut short...I can't ever remember a time when my hair was shorter than shoulder length.  I couldn't get that much cut off for the same reason as you Carrie, I have to be able to put it back.  Hair in my face drives me nuts.  But it's so long right now, not down to my waist, but not far from it.  I think about 3 or 4 inches off of it would make me feel better.  Just get some of that weight off my head.  I also have to keep it long b/c I have naturally curly hair and if I got it cut short it would just look like a huge fuzz ball.

Im in for a good haircut- but long enough to pull back is a must- that and a really deep massage for these nursing neck and shoulder muscles is on my mind these days!
