We've had a very busy week around here, so I've only been a lurker. Dh got sick earlier in the week- he was throwing up, etc. Amazingly, thankfully no one else got sick- I was soooo happy.
My sister and her 2 babies and husband arrived from St. Louis on Wednesday. Unfortunately that day my dad was also in a car accident. After rolling his vehicle from a snow bank into a rock face he broke his ankel, was bruised and cut and hospitalised about 2 hours away from home. It's been a tumultous week to be concerned about him- my mom travelling back and forth, with my sis all at her house- without my dad there! It's shocking for me because my dad is an incredible and very experienced driver who's never had an accident- I guess I always perceived him as invincible. We miss him now, but he should be home soon!
Last night I watched 'Orgasmic Birth', I ordered the dvd documentary. It was good, I'm looking forward to watching it with other people to get their perspectives, as I feel like I'm maybe less impressionable, having done so much reading and research already. It's not as impressive as 'The Business of Being Born', and mostly I'm concerned with finishing my bedroom so that my homebirth is 'beautiful'. Does anyone else feel that their birth needs to be visually beautiful? I was always turned off by pictures of clutter and mess in hombirth videos and photos. There's a lot of that in this movie.
