Doing fine here. Experiencing the usual cohort of symptoms that mean nothing because they can just as easily be attributed to the PIO as to a pregnancy…bloodhound-like sense of smell, twinges in the uterine vicinity that aren’t menstrual-type cramps, that sort of thing.
I’m not spending my time solely on the couch. I spent about an hour on Thursday and Friday running some light errands and yesterday we drove into Dallas and wandered around Northpark Mall for a bit (Yay, a trip to LUSH!), then managed to hit four bookstores before treating ourselves to dinner at a fantastic Asian restaurant, TomTom (in case you find yourself in Dallas and need a recommendation). I’ve had dreams about their crab laksa. I’m on a quest to find a recipe for this soup.
So, lazy but not to couch-potato stage yet. No lifting of anything heavier than Lucy. I got to sit and enjoy a bagel while Shannon cut the grass. I sat in a chair in the hallway and directed his attempt to figure out why the washing machine is leaking THIS time. It will go back to being boring tomorrow when he goes back to work and I tackle chapters 3 & 4 of the html book.
Oh! We have this year’s family of bunnies in the backyard. Thank goodness we use a reel mower instead of a gas mower! I happened to glance out the window in time to see to mouse sized rabbits scurry along the retaining wall and ran to warn Shannon. After he finished working in the yard, we found one of them still huddled in the corner of the yard, then we managed to locate the burrow with at least one other baby rabbit inside. We’ve been checking on them throughout the day. Since we mowed down all of their cover, we set up a beach umbrella to keep the burrow shaded and make sure the red-tailed hawks can’t see them. The one in the corner has been there all day. I’m hoping Mama comes back this evening and calls for her missing baby. If it’s still there in the morning, I might try picking it up with my garden gloves (they’re bound to smell more like dirt and plants than me) and move it back to the burrow. In the meantime, we scattered some of the veggie scraps from dinner prep nearby both babies. Surely they’ll eat parsley stems and leeks! They’re absolutely adorable. I’ll try to catch some pictures of them soon, once they start wandering around the yard. I hope this year’s are as well behaved as previous litters. They’ve never eaten any of my landscaping, just the weeds and the grass.
*Monday Morning Bunny Update – It looks like the wandering one made it back to the burrow, as it looks much more crowded in there than it did yesterday. What a relief! Now to just keep shifting the umbrella throughout the day to keep them nice and shady.
