I can't stand being still all day, and I can't stand being unproductive. Not to mention that horrible Restless Legs Syndrome I have is TOTALLY triggered by inactivity. I laid on the couch looking at the laundry I could have been folding, dishes I could have been doing, and knowing that a LOT was going on at work that I needed to be there for. Once again, miserable. Nothing was on TV and with my almost nightly lack of sleep I was too scared to nap for fear of another night sitting up awake. Morris wasn't that great of company, either. He just laid around all day like it was the good life, he didn't try and entertain me at all.
After hours and hours of not moving I decided to make a WalMart trip around 5pm- we needed groceries, and I am making fruit salad for some of the guests at the Ronald McDonald house in Augusta this week. Plus, I knew that if I didn't exercise my legs at least a little bit that my RLS was going to drive me bonkers tonight. Chad came to the store with me so I didn't do any heavy lifting or maneuvering, and when I got home I had 4 packages on my doorstep! I love packages! We've started getting our fluff mail to add to the nice stash of cloth diapers that Noah received at my recent baby shower! Our stash is growing and it makes me so happy! I finally have enough to start washing and pre-treating them and I made a cleaning/care instruction sheet for our laundry room until we get it down to a science, and of course for the days when Chad feels like helping out! We also got the best gift- a total surprise from my in-laws - Noah's pack'n'play! She is one lucky girl and she doesn't even know it yet! I'm glad to say the end of my day has been better than the beginning. I can't WAIT to go to work tomorrow. Un-swollen fingers crossed that I don't ever have to have a "rest day" again before Noah comes, because I am not cut out for it. I seriously feel for the poor women who get put on bed rest.
In the big scheme of things life is great, my baby girl is healthy (I know because she doesn't stop moving) and I can move my hands again! Plus, I'm surrounded by amazing friends and family who I love more than anything! Now I'm going to go SIT and cut up enough fruit to feed 30 people tomorrow! Have an awesome night! Love, Layne
