Yesterday was a better day (not that the day before was bad, but, as you can tell, I got in quite a funk toward the end). But anyway, yesterday was better despite Jonah huge-vomiting all over the floor and the cat starting to lick it up before we could get it cleaned up. It was better despite Jonah having a squeeze-out-the-sides poop while Matt was at church that spilled out on my jeans and got on the floor (unbeknownst to me) that I later stepped in (niiiiiice).
But yesterday was better. Dressing change went well, and he learned a new sound, and he wasn't quite as fussy. I'm expecting an even better day today (although, physically, I'm feeling like poopy, having my visitor after about two years of not... my body is getting me back... sorry, boys, for TMI.)
A couple times this week I've decided to get up early and go ahead and take my shower before Jonah gets up. Typically I wait til he goes down for a nap after dressing change (because I'm usually pretty greasy), but in an attempt to feel slightly more human, I'm trying to shower, dry my hair, and put on make-up first thing. It helps. However, on Tuesday I got up at 6:40 (because Jonah had been waking up at 7:15 every day), so that I could be ready when he got up. He slept til 9. Yesterday I didn't do it, and he woke up at 7:30. Today I did get up at 6:40, and he's still sleeping at 8:10. That's right. On the days I get up at the butt-crack of dawn to get ready, Jonah chooses to sleep in. I told you he has a sensor. I don't know how he knows, but he knows. Oh yes. He knows.
I think I'm going to cook tonight. We've been eating hot dogs all week, because we defrosted a 28 pack, and felt like we needed to go ahead and cook them lest they go bad. So we did. And we've eaten almost all of them. Gross. (But man, they were tasty.) So I may cook tonight. And I may take pictures. And I may post them here. I don't know why except that I need to feel like I have a "project," and that's about all I can come up with. So if you don't care what I had for lunch, either pretend you care what I have for dinner of just ignore my food posts. :)
Did you guys read about Sam??? Her WBC count started coming in. WOOHOO! God is great! She's doing better too. Thank you so much for praying and following her story. It means so much to me that you would take the time to go over and share your love with her too. I've read her guestbook and saw that many of you had posted there (and it made me a little teary eyed, to be honest). Her mom is so encouraged by your love and support. I cannot explain to you the power of knowing you are being prayed for by people all over the country, Canada, Australia ... Amazing. Thanks for cheering on Sam and praying for this hope.
Ok, I'm gonna run now. Maybe Jonah will let me make the bed AND brush my teeth before he wakes up. And on a completely different note, how awesome am I for using the words "unbeknownst" and "lest" in the very same post? You know you like it.
