I hope everyone had a happy 4th! I did get out and see hospital patients, they were stuck after all, and I drove for the first time and creeped around holding my tummy but I did ok. I was exhausted afterward for sure.I got some feedback requesting that I put more of our day to day nesting stuff on the blog. I can certainly do that and I am aware that this sort of morphed away from that. Really the reasons are:
1. the day to day nesting stuff is pretty uneventful, it is going well.
2. I am way to ADHD to stick to one topic.
There have been some definite perks of nesting this week though.
First of all, I think that the new girlfriend is out of town because Stanley has been super sweet again. Very attentive and nice to me. Why? I am being mutually respectful of him and really do want him to have a nice apartment and have his needs met as well. Because if that is what it takes to get him to settle down and nest longer for the children then I will do whatever. Also, I was married to him for 14 years, I want him to be happy. But I am thinking the new girl is a bad influence.
I asked Stanley on Sunday if I could stay in my room when I was off this week because I wasn’t able to drive back and forth. He agreed and I think it has been good for the kids. They were worried about me and didn’t quite understand the surgery thing but because I have been here, they have been able to see me and also take care of me a bit. When I was in my room, they brought me drinks and checked on me, giving me lots of snuggles and hugs. When Stanley was off, I came down and made my bed on the sofa so I could watch them.
On Tuesday night, Stanley was on and I was in my room, door shut. He came and tapped and said that he felt sick. Stanley NEVER does that. He is never sick. I sent him to his room and was able to take over putting the kids to bed.
