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.
