The weather has been gorgeous the past couple days. Today I finally had the strength to go outside and do something. It's funny, I was so nauseated before but not throwing up, and now I'm throwing up but otherwise fine. Which is better? To me I guess this next stage is--throw up once in the morning, feel tons better, and go about my day. Sorry, TMI, but there you go.
Anyway, today was great, after I finally got my ass out of bed. We had to go to the library so I threw on my tennis shoes and put Ingrid in the stroller and we walked the mile or so to the downtown library. It's great to walk down Main Street and see all the outdoor cafes, everyone biking and enjoying the sun. We got our new books and then went to get a sub for lunch. After that we walked toward home.
On the way home I saw this enormous yard sale with loads of stuff, so I had to check it out. Ingrid was drawn magically to the kiddie sized drum set and spent the majority of the time drumming on it while all the people there said oh, she sure does like that! I think you should get it for her! Yeah right, you want me to live with a 2 year old and drum kit?? Right. I bypassed the drums and found a couple cool vintage sheets. What more could I ask for from a sunny summery day?
We then walked home for naptime and now I'm contemplating what to do this afternoon. I love feeling okay! I know tomorrow morning I'll be puking again, but for now I feel alright and I can take Ingrid out to have fun instead of begging her to just go read her books or go in the playroom for awhile while mommy lays half dead on the couch. Poor kid, she's really gonna get the shit end of this new baby stick, isn't she?
