    Today's Poem of the Day

    L’Avenir est Quelque Chose
    by Dobby Gibson

    All day for too long 
    everything I’ve thought to say
    has been about umbrellas, 
    how I can’t remember how
    I came to possess whatever weird one
    I find in my hand, like now, 
    how they hang there on brass hooks
    in the closet like failed actors,
    each one tiny or too huge,
    like ideas, always needing
    to be shaken off and folded up
    before we can properly forget them on the train.

    I can't believe it has been almost one month

    since I posted. Not even sure what the hell I've been doing. I have a long to do list that seems to indicate the answer is "nothing".

    6 weeks of bed rest RECAP

    so I've made it through six weeks of bed rest.  At least two weeks was spent having and recovering from the flu. I have watched a lot of television. Like A LOT a lot.
    I haven't read that many books, I have flipped through a lot of magazines. And read a lot of Twitter.
    I've played a lot of Angry Birds.
    B has been mostly understanding, though she doesn't quite get how hard it is for me to get up and down and around.
    My diet isn't as good as it should be. It's hard with no kitchen and limited getting out of a bed ability. Lots of fruit and milk and cereal and toast. And pastries. And string cheese.
    I estimate I am drinking about 5 liters of water a day.

    We have 80% of a new kitchen, and a new car.

    Hmmmm. this is pretty boring actually. who knew that a recap of 6 weeks of lying in bed would be so boring?  I have lots of thoughts about parenting. Maybe I should rally to post about those.

    Today's the Day

    for nothing really.  Recovering from the flu. Which I already had this year.  WHY DID I NOT GET A FLU SHOT. sigh.  Well, I know why, but WHY?????

    anyways, I made the judgment call to take cough suppressant, b/c the last time I had the flu (/cry) the Kaiser nurse said that Mucinex was ok. And I really needed to stop coughing since every cough was a stabbing pain in my poor overworked abdomen muscles.  But reviewing the medical information online, Guafenesin has basically no information available as to whether is poses any risk to a fetus, and is categorized as a Class C drug, which basically says "take if the benefits outweigh the risks."

    so yeah, that is the advice: we have no idea what the risks are. take only if the benefit outweighs the risks.  SO HELPFUL.

    What's up with all of you?

    Time has lost all meaning

    March Madness tomorrow!  I am going to fill the hole in my finances left by bed rest by winning the ESPN online tournament.  This plan is genius.

    I thought about creating a "things watched" sidebar, since my "books read" one is so depressing.
    but I think making the change would be equally depressing.

    Day ?

    Ok enough with that. I suppose I must go back to creating appropriate post titles like everyone else.
    not much new to report. Reading magazines "delicious new takes on chicken salad". Finished all the free Justified. Rewatched Sherlock. Caught up on my regular shows. Thinking daytime may be a good time to pick up Walking Dead again.
    I have a stack of books to read. It's very exciting.  Not really getting enough sleep though. Ironic.
     I couldn't figure out why everyone was celebrating St. Patrick's Day on the 15th.
