Yesterday I felt terrible all day. Nausea, headaches and stomach aches and general malaise. It wasn’t really a flu or any kind of virus, I think it was a combination of a few different things including back pain, lack of sleep (post-poker night) and dehydration among other things. Dave had to help some people move in the morning, so I put Soren in the play pen, and Jireh on one side of me with my arm over her legs and Christina on the other side. Miriam was sitting on the floor and I had the Caillou DVD going for about 4 hours I think. (The girls know how to turn it back on again. And again…) One good thing about hardly ever using the TV babysitter anymore is, that it really works when I need it.
I managed to shower and sit down in the living room with the kids around 2pm and Dave got home shortly thereafter. Then we all took a family nap in the living room. I got up to make dinner (chicken burritos) and then Dave took the kids out to the lake and paddled around with the three of them on a flotation device for a couple hours. I am grateful for two things: 1. that God in his mercy let me be incapacitated on a day my husband was home from work! and 2. that I am still not pregnant and feeling like this every day. I tend to be really ambivalent about whether I want to be pregnant but logically, it is overall a good thing to wait a bit.
Anyway, here are some photos that I took Sunday.
Hope you can see the dresses and Soren’s outfit a little better in these.
