Thing 4: Mama knew there’d be days like this

July 19th, 2010 | Posted by Amy Boughner in PPD

I knew going in to my 30 lbs by Blissdom plan that there would be days that would throw me off my game. I knew today would be one of those days when I woke up sick a little after midnight. This was confirmed for me when I woke up again at 4 am to a crying baby.

I was not on the ball today. Hell, I barely knew there was a ball today.

Today I was an over-tired mess who was afraid to eat much of anything. Today everything I had planned to get done was put on the back-burner for fear of me entirely losing my cool. Add to that rain and a cranky baby and no exercise was being had today.

Today sucked.

Eventually, after a near breakdown and calling the husband home from work, I got the grocery shopping done, I got started on my new knitting project, which calmed me down a bit. I got out of the house, baby had a nap, we watched a bit of the Muppet Show, guaranteed to put you in a good mood, and the day improved.

Still tired, still feeling a bit nauseous, still angry with myself for my failures today – too much sweet, too little exercise, but I guess I should just be happy to have gotten through it.

Tomorrow is another day, in a few days my mom gets here and sees the baby for the first time since she was one day old, then off we fly to see my grandfather who will be turning 90 next week – and he already got his letter.

Things will be better tomorrow.
