We braved exaggerated-Ike weather (seriously, like 2 wind gusts and some drizzle) and headed to Facelogic. Dark room. Reclined in a chair with knees bent comfortably. Calming music. Steamed towels on my face. Scalp massage. Finger massage. Shoulder/chest massage. All of this equalled bliss! Of course by the end, Baby M was making my stomach growl horrendously loud which the aesthetician was polite enough to ignore. I even left with a some new face 'product' ( as my sister would call it) to address my hormone-enraged skin. Almost heaven.
On to other things. . . I can't believe I'm half-way through incubating Baby M! The first trimester drug on and on and on. . . well, you get the pciture. Now well into my second trimester, time is speeding on like crazy! I am definitely feeling the urge to stock up on all things baby. Right now the current debate is about bedding. I found a beautiful custom set on Ebay very reasonably-priced--it is is a lovely damask print. Very sophisticated, in my opinion. But then, I've also fallen for an animal-themed bedding. . . I can't make up my mind!!! Chris, bless his dear heart, is interested--just not passionate about it. Understandable, to be sure. My thoughts are torn--if we are still in our current home (as it looks now) the custom bedding is not overtly 'baby' BUT the animal-themed stuff is so cute. I am worried that if I go with a theme that Baby M will be inundated with themed items. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone but me. . .
Other than the bedding-drama (not so dramatic to anyone but me), everything seems to be going well. For the most part, I have energy and I feel well. This is not to say there aren't aches and pains--chronic heartburn, achy feet, growing pains in my lower abdomen, back pain--oh, and difficulty sleeping. All to be expected with the job, I suppose.
Something that has returned to normal? My appetite. I have found my inner Betty Crocker, or as Betty Crocker as I get. . . I made some snickerdoodle cookies last night and tonight it was strawberry shortcake with homemade whipped cream. Yummy. And I couldn't pass up the brownie mix today at the grocery store. Mmm.
That's it for now. It's off to bed for me!
