Today was the best day I have had in a l-o-n-g time. I didn't think it was going to start out well because I had a bit of rough night. I took the last dose around 8:30 pm and went directly to lie down. I watched the movie Fa.me in bed (not nearly as good as the original) and then fell asleep. At 2:30 am, I woke to take my next dose of pain killers, but in the dark I grabbed the wrong bottle and only took 15 mg of Codeine, Not. Nearly. Enough. So, at 5:00 am, I woke up to excruciating pain and realizing my mistake, took the real deal. I was able to fall back asleep for another few hours.
When it was finally time to get out bed, A. and I decided that we were going to spend the day together. He made me a delicious breakfast of banana chocolate chip pancakes (one thing about not cycling or being pregnant is that I am eating chocolate like it is going out of style) and then we spent a few hours lounging outside in the backyard in the gorgeous summer weather. It was both relaxing and really nice. I think we both needed this We even decided that we are going to try and book a weekend away at a nearby resort in the next coming weeks, so stay tuned for that update.
Tonight, we made a delicious BBQ dinner (I'm not really feeling up to going out right now) of arugula salad with a light lemon vinaigrette, lemon marinated chicken breasts, basmati rice with pine nuts and of course, a chilled Chardonnay to drink (another thing I have missed) and if there is room, some Tur.tles ice cream for dessert.
Today was just about us; taking it easy at home, remembering all the things we love about each other and most of all, not talking about IF or pregnancy at all.
