What a week


Thursday, July 24, 2014

Last Friday we dealt with my dad being gone 1 year. Somehow I think 4th of July was harder, since it was our holiday together. Monday night my 2nd cousin Gabby messaged and me told me her Grampa died (my uncle, died 1 yr and 2 days after my dad). Been kinda stressed over that, I am in no shape to head to Chicago right now. Jews usually bury super fast, 2 days. Then they sit shivah for 7 days. So you have PLENTY of time to get to Chicago.....yay...... I had not seen my uncle in 7-8 yrs. Him and his wife (my dad's big mean sister) canceled on coming to my wedding the morning of. We probably arent treking 3.5 hours 1 way to Chicago to say I am sorry. I'm sure we would have if my dad was here.

So Tuesday morning (after I found out) I woke up at 4:30 am for my dance class. Came home took a 20 minute nap before work. Woke up with a horrible migraine. Head was spliting and vision was going and getting numbness in my face and hands ASAP. I was freaking out because I can't take anything at all. I took tylonel and went to work and called my OB when they opened and asked if there was anything to head this off. Took them 5 hours to prescribe me tylonel with codeine. By that time I had left work early and was feeling a lot better. Not sure if I have the flu or what, been achey and horrible headache for 3 days. All I can do is nap and take tylonel sparingly. I took yesterday off early again and today I have off to do not a damn thing besides snuggle with my dogs and take it easy.

We did get some baby stuff accomplished. The crib arrived yesterday. I am 6 months pregnant today, HOLY CRAP! Babycenter informed me that my uterus is now the size of a soccor ball, that is not comforting. I started my baby shower list for my cousin. She is coming from Chicago to do this for me. I really hate the idea of baby showers and what happens at them. So I told her no stupid baby poop diaper games. She came up with some artsy cute ideas of projects to do instead. I was also trying to figure out where to have it. This Victorian Synagogue just reopened to the public 2 weeks ago, been closed off as a residence for decades. My local friend helping my cousin discovered it. So we are gonna go check that out. She said it's really beautiful inside with all stained glass. Here is a link to a history the local paper did.

Eating has not been good, never is when I am sick. Hopefully exercise and eating will be on the mend soon.

    I am so sorry to hear about your Uncle, Julie. I have been thinking of you the past couple weeks. Hugs from afar! My family has an obsession with the 14th. Nearly all my close relatives have died on the 14th of a month. It is strange. Even my Grandma who had Alzheimer's died on dec. 14 and her husband, my grandpa had died 8 yrs. before her on jan. 14th. It is always so hard every year.

Wow! 6 mos. Congrats girlie! It is a challenge but the most amazing kind. :-) you are gonna rock at motherhood :-)!

    I've had a headache for the past 3 days, too. Maybe there's something in the atmosphere that's doing this to us? I thought it was a new RX I started taking this week. I hope you're feeling better soon.

I just know your shower will be amazing. I like baby showers way better than wedding showers. People ask for the most ridiculous stuff for weddings, but baby showers are more practical!

    The Synagogue is beautiful!

I hate to hear that you are sick. I hope this doesn't last long.

I have not been to too many baby showers but I much prefer the ones that don't get too weird. The main thing is that it is for you and the things you do at it should be things you enjoy doing with people you like. My baby shower was a complete surprise to me and it was so touching as my friends had made me so many beautiful homemade gifts.
