With a few extra minutes…

  • took a shower and managed to wash and condition my hair
  • shaved my legs for the first time in a month (never mind the fact that I only went up to my knees)
  • filed exactly 2 of my nails — only the super jagged ones get my special attention these days
  • slapped some lotion on my neglected old lady elbows
  • tip-toed into the baby’s room to make sure she was still asleep
  • sang the Hallelujah chorus (silently…in my head) when I saw that she was still sleeping
  • ate a few Red Vines, my postpartum obsession
  • flipped through a new magazine and realized how out of touch I’ve been with recent celeb gossip
  • realized that not knowing what LC wore this week isn’t such a bad thing
  • wrote this post

FYI, I have a bunch of new posts lined up… I won’t be neglecting my blog for much longer, I promise!

  1. Jelly Bellys became my post-partum obsession, thanks to a Costco jar from my mom.

    And I have no idea what’s going on with celeb gossip anymore. If it’s not posted on the baby message board I read, then I have no idea.

  2. Don’t forget to rest with those few extra minutes! Congratulations, the pictures I have seen of your little girl are beautiful. I hope I can come see her soon!

  3. Yay for a few extra minutes! And a new blog! For she IS alive!

    Every time I eat Red Vines, I always read the package about how it says fat free and I remember when I was a kid, I thought it meant it had no calories.. haha

    Michael: Wow, I cannot believe this yogurt has no calories!
    Pam: No one said it has no calories.

  4. There she is! =) I’m so glad you are enjoying Mommy-hood…even if it is a little exhausting. I’m sure you are doing great. Can’t wait to see more pics of your little darling…I’m sure she’s grown!

  5. I’m using my few extra mnutes of baby sleeping time to catch up on some blogs right now! (Before I go out and shovel the walk, if I get that much time, that is!) So – now that I’m here – congratualations! (Belatedly, ack.)
