One day at a time. I hate that phrase sometimes because it seems so generic and “unsympathetic”, but ya know what? It really is true. The Hus and I took today and tomorrow off. It’s been needed. Two doctor’s appointment tomorrow, so my list of questions is ready to go. We did manage to leave the house today and that felt good. I just hated hearing Phil say that we needed to just get back to our routines. I know he’s right, but then that means we go back to square one where we are playing the waiting game month-to-month again. I can’t count the times I’ve heard, “just try again”, over the last few days. I know that’s true as well, but I’m scared. Scared because once you have an ectopic pregnancy, your chances of having another one is extremely high. I know, I know…I keep hearing my friend, Rachel’s words: “Don’t accept that! God is bigger!”
I know that mentally, I’m ready to start working out again, but physically, my body just feels weird and beat up. Philco has been taking good care of me though.
He made me pumpkin pancakes for breakfast while I read my devotions.
Bought me some chocolate “therapy”.
And he grilled us steaks while my mom made baked potatoes and sweet corn for dinner. (And she did 2 loads of laundry for us – gotta love those moms!) Sorry, no pic on this one. Too busy talking and eating…
We watched a movie, then I spent some more time being encouraged and remembering to be thankful for what He HAS done for me.
Came across this passage and this is what I’m standing on.
These beautiful flowers from my aunt and uncle are taking up the dining room table, and I hope they stay alive forever.
Lemme back this up to Saturday because I DID manage to make “something pumpkin” over the dreary weekend. Two ingredient pumpkin brownies. You heard me right – 2 ingredients. Can-o-pumpkin and a box (or bag in my case) of brownie mix. VERY good. VERY moist. I just could’ve handled them being a little more pumpkin-y, so next time I’ll add some pumpkin pie spice.
My mom spent all day Saturday with us and all day Sunday with us. Which = lots-o-movies (and HGTV). We did a cheese and cracker tray and a veggie tray. My appetite hasn’t been the greatest lately – everything still tastes different and I eat 2 bites and am either full or I want to throw up – but the veggies and cheese and crackers actually tasted NORMAL! Philco and my mom were just excited to try the Boars Head pepperoni and cheese.
Be THANKFUL for something today!
