Armondo is Home!


Armondo came home today after being gone for three + weeks.

These last few weeks have been the hardest of my life! Between having crazy colds, sore hips, nasty rain, water boiling, isolating snow, and being more than eight months pregnant, things have been tough.

But my knight in shining armor has returned!

No more hauling heavy baskets of wood from the shed to the wood stove! Cooking duties being shared! Dish duties being shared! I won't have to get up every single time in the middle of the night with Cherry!

I tried not to complain about him not being home while he was actually away, 'cause I have to admit I was feeling a little vulnerable. I did mention some things that would indicate that he wasn't here, but I tried not to make it too obvious.

He'll be home now probably straight through most of February!

So, that's it for tonight, but now that he's home, I'm going to go back and find a draft post I started writing the night Cherry locked me out of the house and finish and post it soon!

Yipee! Glad that Armondo made it home safe and sound and in time to play in the snow with his little girl!(If it's not all slush by tomorrow that is...)

Happy day you :)

I'm gald he's home for you! You need as much help as you can as you get bigger and more tired. As we speak we are getting the first snow fall and Isabella is bugging Chris to go out and make snow angels. So, he's getting her dressed. She has him wrapped around his pinky finger!

I`m looking forward to reading it - not that I enjoy hearing about the misery of other people. :P Don`t want to give you the wrong impression.

That "sore hip" thing...did you have it the last time you were pregnant? It may be PSD (I can't spell Pubis Symphysis Dysfunction), which is caused by your body releasing an overload of elastin hormone, which is supposed to make birthing easier.

I had it BAD while pregnant, and had to go to physical therapy, ugh. It got better, a LOT better, the very same day Bella was born, but it hung around the whole time I was nursing, and I swear I still have a touch of it.

I described it as "sore hips" too, to my OB/GYN, and she knew what it really was. But I still said "sore hips," even after I knew that wasn't accurate, because people look at you funny if you say, "sore pubis."
