yesterday was my due date. and instead, i was hauling around a 3-week old baby. it was actually a pretty hard day for me. sam couldn’t stop spitting up. big. huge. and i got a call from the new insurance company that i would be denied coverage (it took about 20 minutes, but i got it straightened out and i won’t be denied – i will be accepted and covered…. sheesh) and then more spit up from sam and i hit my limit. i was finished. so i called the doctor’s office, talked to my nurse (and dear friend) lisa, and cried and cried and cried. and tomorrow i’m taking sam to the doctor’s office to see if there’s anything else dr. dickson can recommend for her spitting up. and her gas. she’s been so gassy (and fussy and uncomfortable) all day today. and i do mean ALLLLLLLLLLL day!
in other news, despite yesterday, i’ve been (slowly) making progress around the house. nana leaves on wednesday night/thursday morning. which means i have one more day to try to finish my "LIST" of things "to do" while my mom is here to help with the kids. it’s a list of non-necessity items, so once she leaves, it’s not likely these things will get done. what’s left on the list? quite a lot, actually. but of what’s left on the list, what is likely to get finished? CLEANING THE HOUSE. hopefully from top to bottom.
what has already been accomplished? a little bit of organization (mostly in drawers or cabinets). samantha’s thank you cards. some progress on davey’s room (a few cars are hanging on the wall, his name was repainted and hung on the wall and nana worked her magic by adding the checkered material in strips to the bottom edge of his bedskirt). i hung the nursery bedding quilt on sam’s wall. i reviewed, edited and ordered a bunch of photo prints (from august to the present).
so you wanna see some shots of davey’s room?
he LOVES the cars (giant wallpaper murals) on his wall… he points at them and smiles. he likes to try to touch them. seeing his smile makes it all worthwhile. the endless searching for the border, the roman shades, the race car material, the bed skirt, the comforter… yep. all worthwhile.
