I walked around the yard today.
My emotional spirits are good. My physical health is improving. But my heavens, I am bored.
When I surfthe parenting websites, the newborn mom articles are all-- the truth about getting your figure back! Baby blues! Etc.
But what about boredom?
Maybe it's because I'm out of library books, and all my shows are on summer recess, and my brain admittedly don't work so great these days what with the sleep deprivation etc., but right now, my biggest problem is that I am confined to a couch/bed with a newborn draped across my chest pretty much 24/7.
When I'm stronger, I plan to pop him in a sling and do what I can to amuse myself-- walks, housework, etc. but that's not an option right now, thanks to the trusty ole blood loss.
I know that I will look back and curse myself for not enjoying this more. I think I need some really, really good books.
But right now, it feels like I'm just tapping my foot and watching the clock, waiting to get back to my real life.
