Ouch, I hurt.

Let me preface this by saying that I gave birth without any drugs.  I know what pain feels like.   Today was painful.  But before I herd you into the pity pen with me, let me instead recount some of the highlights of the day:

1.  As you know, Nora has been on a hamster kick, so in an effort to leave my bed as little as possible today, we sewed a new hamster.  Meet Oxnard.  He holds onto a sunflower seed when he's afraid.  Seeds are great fear deterrents.

2.  We watched James and the Giant Peach, which is a completely different movie than I remember it being.  I think I can safely say that I finally understand symbolism.

3.  Nora fed me some watermelon, and that was nice.

4.  I refuse to let Mom come over and take care of me because I don't want her picking this up, but Mike is planning on planting beans right down the road from us tomorrow, so I have a feeling she might just pop in.  And I'm not going to lie.  I would love that.  When I was a kid, she'd do this thing where she'd brush my hair behind my ear over and over again with her finger.  It drove me nuts.  Unless I was sick.  So, just FYI, Mom.

5.   And when we made it to bed time, I took a bath hot enough to mean I wouldn't need to shave my legs for a few weeks.  And that's always good.

  1. Oh, dear. I hope you feel better very soon!

    That hamster is oh-so-cute. :) Has Oxnard met Henrietta yet?
