More Catching Up

What is up?

We are now back to mobile blogging! I don’t love using the WordPress app on my iPhone to blog, but since I’ve been driving to work more than taking the train I’ve lost my prime blogging time. So, we do what we can with what we have, to paraphrase Eleanor Roosevelt, I think.

So, yeah, I’ve sort of given up on the train for now. Turns out that adding a half hour to my commute each way turned it from totally do-able to totally exhausting. Even though I dislike driving, at least I know it shouldn’t take more than an hour to get home, as long as there’s no major traffic issues. Plus, it’s kind of nice to wear what I want and leave when I want.

We had a super nice weekend and Mother’s Day over here. San Francisco weather was very cooperative. Saturday I got a sorta-Mother’s Day gift: a new bed! Hulk and I have been going back and forth forever about upgrading to a king-sized mattress, and finally decided to pull the trigger last week. We found our exact same bed frame in a king size on Amazon, and that was just a cherry on top. The mattress came over the weekend. Squish was very excited to “help” set everything up.

Don’t mind the disaster of a desk back there. I’ve kind of giving up on keeping things picked up anymore.

The best part? My leg has been relatively pain-free since we started sleeping on the mattress. At PT yesterday my therapist said that my muscles were so relaxed, it was a huge gain from last week. Months of pain, and all I needed is some routine self-massage and a new mattress. At least I know now, right?

Sunday some friends came over to celebrate Mother’s Day. Their daughter is Squish’s age, so the dads took the kiddos to the park and pool while my mom friend and I treated ourselves to mani-pedis and some swimsuit shopping. Then we ordered pizza and watched movies for dinner. Definitely the best Mother’s Day I’ve celebrated for myself yet.

Make it a great week, I hope I can check in a bit more often as time allows!

  1. Sounds like a perfect Mother’s Day!
    And the new mattress? Jealous!!! We need a new one. The last one we bought was from Big Lots. Ugh. Yeah, I’m super cheap. lol. Hubby will talk me into a new one one of these days, and when it’s time, we’re getting something nicer. Glad it helped the leg too!!

  2. A little late to the party but happy belated Mother’s Day! I would kill for a new mattress but a Temperpedic is not the best use of my money right now.

    Hope all is well for you, lady! Take it easy until #2 comes out!
