Looking Forward

I’m actually looking forward to this week.  A glass of wine last night was what the doctor ordered.  I want to thank all of you who offered your support, your sympathy, your stories and your ears.  It was all helpful and much appreciated.  I think I’m almost done sorting out all of the thoughts floating around in my head.  All with the exception of one lingering doubt.  Although it’s comforting to hear the stories of how many people successfully conceive after miscarriage, on a personal level it would be that much more comforting if I hadn’t delivered Chase by c-section.  It makes me wonder about the ability of my body the way I would had this been my first pregnancy.  In any event, I can’t and wouldn’t change anything about Chase’s delivery.  We’re incredibly blessed that she’s here.  And so I think I’m almost done talking about it.  I’m feeling much more like myself physically and emotionally.  I fell right off the health wagon. I stopped taking my vitamins and spiraled into a vortex of deli meats, coleslaw and caffeine.  This morning though I slept in and woke up thinking you know, if I want my body to heal quickly and be ready to try again ASAP I should probably get right back up on the health wagon and I think I’m going to do that.  So, I’m looking forward to this week and feeling ready for Monday.

I even felt good enough to work on a few projects that have been rattling around in my head.  I made a few tea bags for our tea parties.  They’re very simple.  I stitched together several layers of tulle and attached a short piece of yarn with a felt tab on the end.  She was pretty excited about it.

I also transformed a pair of broken overalls into a pair of jeans.  Although I haven’t had a chance to photograph those I did get a few shots of the little coin purse I made from the little pocket on the front.  I stitched a piece of fleece to the back and added a C for Chase.
