I’ve been feeling tired and kind of lousy all day, and one of my breasts has a sore spot. I’m hoping it’s a clogged duct and not mastitis. I don’t have a fever, so I’m thinking it’s most likely the former.
I’m excited for Sarah! Every day I’ve been wondering when her baby will come, and finally it’s here. I can’t wait to hear more about her. I don’t know what it is with me and babies. I am just so interested whenever anyone I know has a baby. Then I see pictures and I simultaneously feel jealousy and relief that it’s not me with the new infant in arms.
In other news, I’m in the market for a new bedside table. I currently use a bedside table from a furniture set my parents bought me probably twenty years ago. The drawers do not open without intense effort, meaning that I’m limited to the top. There is just not enough room there for water, tissues, eye-drops, my Kindle, nursing pads, and B’s nighttime books. I’ve decided I’m looking for something with surface dimensions of at least 16″ x 26″. Of course, if the drawers were functional, maybe I wouldn’t need it to be quite that big.
I like these two from Pottery Barn:
The top one is 18″ by 32″, and the bottom one is 18″ by 28″. I can’t decide whether I like the fresher look of the top one or the more rustic look of the bottom one. I also feel like I need to try and find cheaper options on Amazon. I have found several possibilities on Wayfair. I’ve never shopped on that site before, but it seems to have excellent selection but mixed quality.
Here’s an Amazon option for $100. Can’t beat that, right?
On a side note, if I had money to burn, I love this chest from Neimann Marcus for an entryway:
