Today and yesterday have been pretty darn great. It's weird that Monday and Tuesday I was in a bit of a funk, for no particular reason, and then yesterday and today I have been feeling so cheerful, for no particular reason. Crazy pregnant women.

So yesterday I had my first visit to the chiro, and I can't help but feel like I'm getting scammed. I walked in feeling fine, she popped a few joints, I forked over some money, and I walked out feeling fine. I just have to keep telling myself that it's supposed to be beneficial in the long term. It's nothing against my chiropractor; she's great. She has actually told me twice now how wonderful it is that I'm nursing a two-year-old, and how could you not like someone like that?

Tonight a UPS guy came to the door and dropped off a fabulously fragrant package for me. It was filled with a bunch of stuff from Zum, a local company that makes amazing goat's milk soap and a bunch of other great natural products. Included in the package was soap, of course, a soy candle, some spray mist, and two containers of shea butter body lotion. Wow! It was sent by Steve's dad and his girlfriend, with a little glad-you're-feeling-better-we've-been-thinking -about-you note. How cool was that of them?

And, lastly, here is the very best thing about today. Emma had no nap today so she was sound asleep by 7:00 tonight. Now that I am no longer an exhausted zombie, I can actually stay up longer than her (Last night I was up until after midnight for no other reason than I just didn't want to go to bed - it is so wonderful to be back to myself again! Plus, I've only thrown up twice in the last three days!!!). This means that I have fourish hours to myself to burn my new candle, drink yummy tea, knit, and watch movies. I am ecstatic!!!

Oh, and Steve has been in Florida all week but he comes home tomorrow!

Oh, and one more thing - my midwife is coming tomorrow and I will get to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time!

It sounds like you have been having a great week! That is really nice of Steve's dad and his girlfriend to send you stuff. I know I like it when I get fun surprise packages from David's mom!

That was pretty handy of them to send you all that loot. As far as the chiropractor visits are concerned, you should skip them and just have Emma jump on your back for a while.

Zum looks really cool. I'm tempted to buy their sampler pack. What else have you purchased from them?

Perhaps you've felt great because of your chiro visit. I have to tell you I have noticed a major difference in my emotions/anxiiety since I've been going. MAJOR difference. LIke finally, RELIEF! Hopefully this is what you are experiencing too!
ZUM does tours of their facility. That would be a fun homeschooling trip to do someday!
