status update

N had her last day yesterday.  B’s mother is visiting, and she and B are watching L this Weds and Thurs, and then we start a new nanny on Monday.  Hopefully we will like the new nanny.  She has a lot to live up to.  The interview process was such a pain.  I’ve been sick on and off the last few weeks (what else is new?) and the last thing I felt like doing was phone screening, interviewing, and doing reference checks on nannies, but sometimes, I guess, you have to do what you don’t want to.

I’m very stressed at work and wish I could just crawl under the covers and sleep for a while.  My MIL is visiting which makes life a bit more stressful as our house is not very big, but on the other hand, L loves her, and hopefully it’ll give B and I a bit of a break, which we desperately need.

Despite having been congested for three weeks (due to two successive colds), I’m feeling better these days.  It’s been about a week since I last threw up, and I rarely even gag these days.  The nausea has almost completely passed this week.  Thank goodness.  I still don’t really feel like myself, and am still dealing with dizziness and tiredness and just generally feeling lousy, but I guess that is the way it’s going to go.  17 weeks.  Only 23 to go.  It is what it is – not pleasant, but worth it.
