Mojo. Sometimes You’ve Got it & Sometimes You Smash the Antenna.

08 February 2011

Ever since the hospital stay and subsequent painfully slow recovery I’ve felt pretty close to mojo-less.  I’m pretty sure that if you’ve been reading for any length of time, you know I don’t like to sit around or to half ass things and I rarely know what my limits are.  This whole thing has been agony.  It was really hard watching my husband do everything around here, work from home, AND take care of me better than you would ever believe.  Taking it it easy is for the birds and so is feeling like an 80 year old woman.  Keeping quiet about a pregnancy that we’ve been wishing and hoping for months to shout from the rooftops sucked.  Mojo-less.  Tired.  Sucksville.  And my eyebrows are in desperate need of a good wax.

Lately though, I feel a bit more myself.  Everything is looking great with the baby, I am relieved to have told everyone now and I don’t have to strategically plan outfits around disguising my expanding midsection.  I’ve been making a conscious effort to write more, even on days when I don’t feel it.  I started working on Finn’s birthday stuff… now switched from cowboy to {shoot me now, I know even less about} superhero.  I’ve gotten out a bit more and we’ve had a couple playdates so life is starting to go back to normal.  I still miss seeing my friends, but slowly that is going back to normal too.  I’m starting to feel good.  I’m starting to feel NORMAL.  Things like laundry & cooking, that Dave has been doing by himself or at the very least helping with for months, are starting to get easier for me to manage on my own.  {I am quite sure he’s happy about that too.}  I like being the one taking care of Dave, not the other way round. 

And I was just thinking that damn I am finally, two and a half months later, myself again.  Five minutes later I wanted to watch Oprah and accidentally smashed the hell out of the tv antenna.  A quick text to Dave, “Yeah.  It is destroyed.  Um.  Fuck.” 

And that confirmed it… Mojo or not, things are definitely back to normal around here.

So good to read you're feeling more like yourself. I totally get the wanting to take care of things yourself, it takes a lot of strength to let someone help you!
