Okay, enough whining around here.
There is plenty to be grateful for these days.
My mom is here for the rest of the month, to help take care of her baby while I takes care of my new baby.
I have an awesome partner who holds me when I cry about my lobster claw hands, and who teased me about looking like an anaconda that swallowed a beach ball when I came downstairs this morning and proudly exclaimed “Look! I can zip up my robe!”
Cats who like to snuggle up on my lap or under the covers during an afternoon nap.
Afternoon naps. Ahhh, already looking forward to mine today.
A good friend who invited me out to drink hot chocolate, talk girl talk, and knit on a weeknight.
Being able to knit again!
Having hope and looking forward to the future as a mother.
My warm, cozy house filled with yarn and food and books and people I love.
