I always forget how much the weather affects me until we have some days with no sun, then suddenly have sun again. And, just as suddenly, I go from moping around the house or office to having lots of energy and getting things done. The sun is shining today, and I feel about 1000% better. Daniel and I are going to go across the street to SushiLand for lunch- we'll see how the baby likes being out there. I've missed sushi so much- it'll be nice to be able to actually eat the things I love, instead of sitting and staring longingly at the raw salmon as it passes me on the conveyor belt. Still no sake for me today, since it's a lunchtime outing :), but I do plan to have some when we go there for dinner next week.
In other good news, the nurse visited today and Ethan is up over 6 pounds! We might actually get to have him wear some of his cute newborn clothes soon, instead of the same 6 preemie outfits that he's been wearing for the last week and a half.
Thanks to all of you for your kind comments this week. It's definitely been (and I'm sure will continue to be) a tough adjustment. People tell you these things, but you have to live through it to really comprehend it. It's nice to have this blog to vent in- and I appreciate all the feedback. Keep it coming!
