Feeling more human.

Definitely feeling better today. Usually it takes me about 3 days to recover from something. And it has been about 3 days. I think I am almost ready to return to the land of the living. The good thing about all of this is that I now have a doctor's note for restricted hours. I cannot work more than an 8 hour shift, and no more than 40 hours a week. Because it is in a doctor's note, my job has to comply. I may make it even easier for them and switch to regular part time. My manager called today, and I started to discuss some of this with her. I think we are going to talk more about this on Monday when I return to work. I at least let her know what the doctor's note said. I hope she appreciates the heads up!

Looking forward to a real weekend this weekend. I have both Saturday and Sunday off. I actually get to spend some time with the hubby! Hooray! Oh yeah, and the nursery gets painted this weekend! That is certainly exciting. Hubby may even start putting together nursery furniture after the painting is done. And by the way, I did get a zero VOC paint! Lowe.s will color match val.spar colors to their oly.mpic paints! So I was able to get the Am.erican Her.itage color I wanted. Very cool!

I chose a doula. After speaking with a couple of them, and then talking about it with my mother, I decided to go with my gut. I am really excited about working with her. I think we are setting up our first meeting for sometime next week. This doula also got a recommendation from a midwife, so I feel pretty confident in choosing her.

I suspect our weekend will involve fire at some point. Hubby has a fireplace in his basement, and he recently discovered that the flu and chimney work! We had a lovely couple of hours last weekend sitting in front of the fire. I decided to step things up a bit this weekend, and I got stuff to make s.mores! What is a fire without s'mores!

Also I get to meet up with a college friend this weekend, and she is also pregnant. She is due a couple of months after I am. I am pretty excited to reconnect with her. I think we are using the same doula, too. Anyway, it should be a nice time.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
