We are at the beach with Lauren’s ENTIRE family (22 of us) and it is glorious. I know I will be on maternity leave in 8 weeks or so, but this brief vacation feels great. Granted, I am working every day for at least an hour checking emails and things, but being able to sleep in, sit around in my PJs and just hang out by the pool is a saving grace.
Today it was a little overcast so a group of us headed to the outlets to go shopping. I only bought a few things… one of which was this amazing, gorgeous, stylish Kate Spade diaper bag — and it was 75% off!!!! I just couldn’t pass it up. I also grabbed a cute Christmas ornament and some tiny Christmas gifts for my grandpa.
The biggest bummer of the day: my carpal tunnel has really gotten worse. It’s only in my right hand, but my finger tips are numb pretty much all the time. I am constantly shaking my hands around to try to get some more feeling in them. They are also incredibly painful and sore when I first wake up in the morning. I am hoping that when I go to my spa day on Wednesday (yay prenatal massage!!) they can work on my hands. I am thinking more and more that I really need to look into some serious acupuncture for it or other methods. I was taking 1 regular tylenol once a day, but I ran out and with this stupid Tylenol recall, I can’t find any in stores — and of course, that’s all us preggos can take. Grrr. Oh well.
On the deck for tomorrow: some time at the pool, a little work and some R&R. Oh, and there is also a family talent competition tomorrow night. Lauren is bugging me to figure out our talent. I told her that I think gestating is pretty remarkable. She did not agree.
