Today was kind of a weird day. We had a fun time at the arboretum this morning with some friends, and afterwards I was planning on running some errands and going home to do some desperately needed cleaning and laundry. As soon as we left the arboretum, I started feeling pretty rotten. Within a few minutes my head was throbbing and I felt like I could hardly stay awake. We went home and the kids and I crawled into bed for a four hour nap. When I woke up, I still had a horrendous headache but luckily Steve was on his way home by then. After a few more minutes of agonizing malady and feeling very sorry for myself, I went in the bathroom and threw up and within five minutes I was completely fine. Strange.
Tonight was Emma's first dance class, and it was so darn cute! She was completely in her element, what with all the singing and skipping and hand-holding they did in the class. I think Steve and I sat there the whole time with big, goofy grins on our faces. We all liked the teacher a lot. Earlier, when I was sick, memories of early pregnancy were flooding back a little too clearly and I was questioning ever going through that again to have another baby. Later on at the dance class, though, I watched Emma prancing around proudly in her little pink tutu, then looked at my sweet Noah gleefully gnawing on his fists, and I knew that of course I will do it again. Because they're so very much worth it.
On the agenda for tomorrow - lots and lots and lots of cleaning and laundry. I'm ecstatic.
