MENTALLY/EMOTIONALLY----taking time while I'm nursing to "chat" with you gals on here...and do non-related work emails (I work at home). During our lessons each morning I've been joining in on the kids' art projects...it feels GREAT to create! On Friday night my husband took me to an A capella concert...we took the baby with, but it felt great to get out "alone".
PHYSICALLY...trying to drink plenty of water, rest when I can, snuggle, cuddle, and ask for backrubs, take care of my face (I LOVE a good cleanse, tone, moisturize), teeth brushed, hair combed (hopefully!). I honestly don't get to a shower every day...DH's been gone too much to make that a reality with four kids...and I don't make it a priority so it doesn't happen. When I start to smell myself I try to get to it! I went and got my hair cut and brows done...I look a little odd...she took it WAY too short, but I felt like a new person getting out of the chair, so that's good! The weather is starting to get warmer here...low 40s (fahrenheit) so we've been trying to take walks...oldest walks, middle two ride in the double stroller, baby-kins in the Moby...it takes about 45 minutes to get us out the door, but totally worth it on days we've got the time!
I keep reminding myself that all too soon they'll be grown up and I'll have LOADS of time to do those things that don't make the cut now...heck, I think of all the 'extras' I got done just six months ago without a baby (or bedrest)...it will be here again before I know it.
