Someone Cut Me Open Already!

Sunday, July 27, 2008

Not the greatest day for me today. Getting highly emotional and irritable. Received two phone calls yesterday one from my Grandmother and one from my Aunt (GM's dd). Of all the times my family has said they would or could come to visit they all want to come down this and in the next couple of weeks. I would love to see my family, but this time is our family's special bonding and adjustment time. Not really for visiting family. I even made sure dh's mother would not fly in from overseas to stay with us for 5 weeks. She stayed almost 3 months when my first son was born. It was way too much for me to handle. You really cannot be yourself when people are visiting even if they are close family. Like running naked down the halls, etc.

So granted would love my grandmother who is in her 80's to come from Illinois, but she'll be accompanied by my uncle and his 2 pre-teen kids. And the week or so after that it will be my aunt, uncle and 3 kids. Geesh family give me a brake. I'm going to have a c-section ya know surgery.

Ok so I baked cookies for my son today and he** yes I ate a whole bunch of dough and cookies. Now I feel like total sugar overload and crappy and I'm ticked.

Ok rambling.

    I'm sweating the whole cooking for the holidays, too. So I'm avoiding cookies altogether which disappointed my daughter who was selling cookie dough, but hay, my health is important too! I spent about the same money on her fundraiser by buying a magazine subscription for Prevention and a veggie steamer which I have actually been using! I also cut my menu down to the most favorite foods and eliminated all the things I just made from habit like 3 kinds of pies, etc. It's supposed to be about togetherness anyway! Good luck with the cookie monster!

    I soooo know what you mean about not wanting family over while trying to adjust to your new routines, pain, tiredness, etc.

    Congrats on the baby.

    Yikes! I feel like that when people try to come visit for a whole week (or more), and that's me not pregnant! So I think you are being COMPLETELY reasonable if you don't want houseguests right after a MAJOR surgery. THis is a major surgery.

    I wish I could help. Let me know if I can - really.

    Mandy I feel for you. I'm not sure how people can just think it would be okay to vacation in your house while your adjusting to a major life changing time for you family. Entertaining people after giving birth is no fun and shouldn't be expected. Especially after a c-section. Running (in the naked) as my nephew says is important. How were the cookies? Hugs, Cherrill

    You are allowed to ramble and be cranky!! Atleast when I visit Steph, she can be herself and relax.. She knows her Mama will take care of Lucas and she can sleep.. I didn't visit today, only because I knew Jeff had to turn his parents away.. I wanted to give them time as a new "family"..

    I did buy everything I needed to make homemade chicken noodles and bread today!! LOL She will get a treat in a day or two of her homecomming!

    I may need your address, the edible arrangement that I sent Steph and Jeff is going bad quickly.. They haven't been able to enjoy it at all.. So if I order one for you.. I would want it delivered to your home.. When you are home!!

    Hugs and Love!!
