So I've been basically stuck in bed for the last 2 1/2 days. Apparently I have mastitis, which is this crazy infection you can get while breastfeeding. So that's been great. Thankfully my mom is here watching Grayson for me, because there is no way I could have done it myself over the last couple of days. I pretty much feel like I have the flu, plus intense pain at the area where the infection is. Just when you feel like breastfeeding couldn't get any easier, something like this comes in and knocks you down a couple notches....boo! On top of that, Arsen has been working insane hours all week. Yesterday he worked from 7:30 am to almost 11pm...plus he doesn't stop to take a lunch or dinner break or anything. Luckily he's here at home, so it's not as bad as it could be, but we still don't see him at all and he is working SO hard. This hasn't been my favorite week, I'll just put it that way.
Also, this past weekend my mom and I went to a bunch of garage sales and resale shops and loaded up on things to get crafty with. I've been searching for something fun to do that could help me contribute some money, and I really love refinishing furniture and things. I'm working on a credenza/buffet type thing for my kitchen right now, and I decided it would be fun to do this for some profit as well. So we got all of this stuff, I got all excited and started working on things on Tuesday and morning...and by Tuesday afternoon I was in bed feeling horrible. Just a minor setback, but frustrating for sure.
On the upside, I've been able to enjoy lots of good cuddly naps in bed with G. I rarely take the time to just lay and relax, and this has forced me to do just that. I'm getting majorly antsy, but I know it's best to just let things run their course. I've got my antibiotic from my Dr. to start this afternoon, and hopefully I'll be back to normal in a day or two. One of my best friends from my hometown is coming to visit this weekend, so I'm looking forward to some fun with her. She and I typically will sit around for hours just laughing and talking about all the crazy things we've been through together, so it should be a good relaxing weekend.
Since I didn't have much of an update or anything, I'll just leave you with some of my recent favorites from Instagram. If you don't already, you can follow me on Instagram here. Fair warning: it's mostly baby/dog pictures :)
