Feeling Good

We had a great nights sleep and despite J waking up with a nose full of snot and the same cough he's been sporting the last couple of days, we woke up feeling pretty good. He felt even better once I sucked about 10 lbs of snot out of his little nose. Other than that he seems healthy and happy, no tempurature, the cough and snot subsided, I'm wondering if this is a cold or some kind of seasonal allergy since mine are kicking in and the mornings seem to be worse. Hopefully his is just a little cold and nothing that will plague him for the rest of his life.

We got ready and since he usually takes a nap again first thing, I decided it would be a good opportunity to hit Whole Foods and do a little food shopping for myself while he slept in the Moby carrier. I found many more diet-friendly bread products and actually purchased some bread elsewhere Saturday thanks to Cranky Mommy's suggestions. I also found more diet-friendly snacks and sweets which are most important. I'm on a mission to find dessert options of the pumpkin variety that I'm able to eat by Thanksgiving. It's bad enough to finish the summer off with no ice-cream but a holiday without dessert is just sinful. I snatched up a Pumpkin Cake mix which consists of approved ingredients. Sort of. It requires 2 eggs which I know I'm banning eggs too but since I'm on to the oversupply theory I'm gonna try and sneak them back in on a very occasional basis. Only in an emergency such as this. And yes, Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie IS an emergency! I know I still have over 2 months to find something but I need plenty of time for taste-testing.

My groceries are put away, my cake is in the oven, my boy is nursing himself to sleep on my lap, ahhhhhh, I feel good. I've also finally gathered up some nursing gear and baby items to ship off for Katrina victims. We've already donated money but I was still feeling helpless. I still need to go through my maternity clothes to send and pack it all up. This may not sound like much to be excited about but it sure beats my mood last night. I was so bummed about nothing yet everything. I had no reason but I was just being a big pouty-ass. This isn't abnormal for me, we call it the "Sunday Blues." Funny I still get them even when I don't work. You'd think Sunday would be just like any other day now. I felt ugly with bad breast milk, stupid, selfish, unmotivated with a baby with a sensitive tummy, one dog with ears that need to be amputated, another dog with more mental issues than me and a husband that watches too much football. I almost closed up shop on my blog because "it's the dumbest thing in the world and who would ever want to read it." I can get a bit schizo at times because today I've done a 180. I still can't claim I'm not all those things or that this blog isn't stupid but I realized that even if nobody ever reads it again, I still enjoy writing it. My boy is happy and healthy as can be, my crazy dog calmed down, my bad ear dog is actually responding to meds which may hold off the surgery and my husband, well...he does still watch a lot of football but he makes up for it with everything else.

Life is good. Until next Sunday.

Glad to hear that Monday is better and I agree a holiday w/out dessert is a sin! GOOD LUCK!

I hate Sundays too! What is that about? I call it my Sunday night funk and encourage my husband just to leave me alone because the only he could do to make it better is stop time.

I really hate sundays. But the main reason I hate then is b/c I know I have 5 freakin days of hell at work! :)

I'm hoping your problem might be fixed by Thanksgiving because I found an awesome recipe for the occasion. I won't go into details though. Glad your having a good day. I feel mental a times too. Not quite as bad now though. The other night something made me laugh really hard and I felt the crying coming on too. Aaron looked at me and said" If you start crying this time, we're getting a divorce:0)" It was in a very loving way though. He thinks I'm really psycho some times and I have to agree.
