Good Days, Bad Days & PIlls

Hubby is on leave for the next two weeks and so far, it's been rather nice. It was especially nice to have him home yesterday, since I wasn't feeling well at all. Not only was I feeling crappy, but it was extra annoying since just the day before I was feeling freaking fantastic.

Sunday was a rather rare day for me. The cleaning bug bit me and I got loads of laundry done along with all of the common areas of the house cleaned down. I went nonstop just about all day, and it felt amazing. We had a nice dinner out back and enjoyed time as a family.

Lately, I've started to notice that I don't feel so great on the days that I take my blood pressure pill. Sunday, for example, I skipped my pill. Yesterday, I made sure to take it, so that I wouldn't skip two days in a row. I think that I'm going to skip it for the next couple of days to see what happens. As it is, my doctor recommended that I stick to taking it once a day versus the prescribed two a day to keep my pressure from getting too low.

I'm hoping that not taking my pill today will help me get some more cleaning done. A couple of John's fraternity brothers are flying in tomorrow so I plan on cleaning up and organizing a bit around the house.

In preparation for having visitors, I set my Etsy shop to vacation mode. Is it bad that I'm super excited about not having to worry about orders and making packages for a little while? 

My labor and delivery tour at the hospital was supposed to be today, but I cancelled to avoid driving all the way out there. I might rescheduled for another time, but really, how different can this hospital be from the other two that I delivered at. 

Love, Alex

  1. Enjoy having your hubby home for two weeks! :)

  2. I hope you start to feel better!

    We didn't tour the hospital with Maddie, I mean I figured when I showed up they'd tell me where to go and they did so I didn't even worry about it.

  3. Aww, sorry you are feeling so crappy. Hopefully you can figure what works with your pills. But yay for leave! :)

  4. Hope you start feeling better soon! At least there will be plenty of hands around the house to help out with the kids for the next little bit! :)

  5. It's lame that the pills meant to keep you healthy are making you feel yucky. From what I've seen of L&D, it looks the same. Maybe bigger but that's all.

  6. feel better! that outside time looked like it was nice!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
