Sunshine Therapy

I realized the other night that I've practically spent the last 3 1/2 weeks indoors. Yuck. Having a summer pregnancy/baby is great, except for this part. It's so hard for me to get out somedays. It's been pretty hot and I haven't wanted to swelter and then in the evenings, I don't want to get eaten by mosquitos. (And in the few, short evenings I've been out, I've been devoured!

Yes, I've taken a walk and been outside for short periods, but I just feel so cooped up. And we've had the AC on a lot too. But today's weather is helping me. It's so beautiful and breezy. The AC is off, the windows are open and I'm about to go and sit on the deck. And it's nice b/c I can hear Piper if she wakes up.

It's also been a tough few days with her since she's been very fussy and I was starting to worry about a number of possibilities why. But, she seems back to herself today, even given the fact that I had to take her for her 2nd round of PKU testing and she screamed harder due to the car ride there and back then she did for the actual heal prick. I hope she figures out this car riding thing soon b/c a 7 hour trip to NC in a few weeks will NOT be fun if she pulls what she did on the way back from my grandmother's.

So off to get some sun and hopefully pull me out of some cabin fever and doldrums I've been feeling. I don't want to blink and figure out it's not summer anymore because I already can't believe it's August and the Olympics start tonight!

I know the feeling well...when I went back to work in December I was a bit shocked to see it was not summer any longer! Ha! Those days when I could get outside and get some sun really helped. I hope the car ride to NC is painless!
