Seeing as how I'm "officially" off bedrest tomorrow, I've put on a few of those hats I had hung up for the bedrest beast.
Today, I mowed the lawn. It was fantabulous. I love mowing our lawn. Well, first, we have a riding lawn mower. Second, we have a HUGE and BEAUTIFUL yard. Mowing our lawn is probably one of the fastest ways to get instant gratification. Not to mention it smells like heaven.
Last night I did a ton of laundry, cleaned the kids room (I deserve a medal just for that) including cleaning the carpets. I also scrubbed, that's right, scrubbed the bathroom from top to bottom. Well, from 5'2" top to bottom.
I did four loads of blanket laundry at the nifty laundromat (when did going to the laundromat become exciting and fun, almost vacation-like? Oh yeah, when I had two kids and a washer and dryer in the basement...)
AND STILL NO FREAKING BABY! All this bedrest for nothing, I say. Even though I've been having contractions since about 1 a.m. coming every 2 to 3 minutes apart...I just don't feel they're doin' it for me or my cervix. C'mon, pick it up uterus. Now's your chance to get back at me for whatever offense you imagine I've made...
Kelly OUT! Woo hoooooooooo!
(I literally sang "Back in the Saddle Again" while I was mowing the lawn, in between contractions. It was very exciting. As you can see, I'm easily pleased. I have SO missed mowing my lawn!!)
