Notes to Self: Early Dec. Edition

Notes to Self is a way that I can remind myself of things that I need to improve on, things that I need to let go of, and just a way of acknowledging things, and getting "that stuff" off my chest.

So here it goes:

Note to self: If Pineapple wants a bottle at 5 am, you can not close your eyes for "just a few minutes". You will wake up like you did this morning, with your mother-in-law in your living room.

Note to self: You know you have approx. two hours between feedings. An hour and a half if you take into consideration the half an hour you have to hold her upright so formula doesn't come out of her nose. Do yourself a favor and stop acting surprised that she wants another bottle.

Note to self: It has only been two weeks since you have had surgery. Cut yourself some slack. Yes, you still need your pain pills. Yes, climbing the stairs still hurts. Yes, bending at the waist is STILL a bad idea. Take it easy. You don't have to be a martyr.

Note to self: At least start off in your bed tonight. I'm sure The Chef misses sleeping next to you just as much as you miss sleeping next to him.

Note to Self: Try and remember that Butter is only 9 and Banana is only 7. You need to take a deep breath before you snap at them. They don't mean any harm, they just want to help. They just want to be with you too.

Note to Self: It's okay. It really is.
