I ordered some face paints from Snazaroo.com, they are even better than I had hoped. Plus painting these faces is something that brings great joy to the squirrels, yet I can do it whilst sitting on my bummie. I guess I owe ya some belleh pictures to illustrate why the "sitting" part is so important to me. I'll get around to it later... like everything else.
Y'all, I had to listen to a 27 year old gal whine about how much harder it is to be pregnant at the advanced age of "almost 30!" than it was at age 18.
Uh huh. Sux 2 B u chicky. Can you hear the sympathy just dripping off my every word?
Lets give you an idea of how I feel... yesterday I had the stomach flu, and I first realized what was going on about a half hour before I started hurling. Fatigue to the point that I cannot stand up to clear off the kitchen table, but must lean on the tabletop with one elbow as I stack everything into a pile? Body aches? Mid section in constant pain, accompanied by excruciating heartburn? Headache and dizzyness? Nausea? La! Am pregnant, what do ya mean stomach flu?
Luckily it was short lived, pretty much what LaLa had Sunday night. So approximately a 12 hour thing with minimum yakkage. Still, it was an eye opener for me that maybe it is not my imagination that pregnancy at 39 bites the big one. It helped that the Bishop's wife came to visit me this morning. She and I share the same first name and a similar bigger-than-life sort of personality, and we pal around a bit. She had made some homemade chocolates and came to share the bounty... she sat for a few and I pumped her for info. She had her last kid at the age of 39, and she let me know that absolutely, it is every bit as hard as I think it is. Probably there is nothing wrong with me, this is just what it feels like to gestate at this age.
We didn't discuss the L and D much. I already know that both she and her son died and were revived on the delivery table, but we are just gonna chalk that business up to Gestational Diabetes and ignore it from there.
Did these faces today. I think I'm already getting better.
Another LaLa Quote: "Mama? I fink that ev-wee-one doethen't like yuh name, tho we all call you "Mama.""
