Perspective

A good day: Fitting into your skinny jeans.

A good day on bedrest: You still fit into your husband's large t-shirt.


A good day: Your hair turns out perfectly after washing, blow-drying, and styling.

A good day on bedrest: You wash your hair for the first time in three days.


A good day: Stopping by Starbucks for your favorite treat on the way to work.

A good day on bedrest: Forgetting that Starbucks even exists because you haven't seen one in two months.


A good day: Getting to go out for drinks with your friends.

A good day on bedrest: Getting to go to the doctor.


A good day: Watching a new episode of your favorite sitcom.

A good day on bedrest: Watching the "Tool Academy" marathon on VH1.


A good day: You and your husband go on a romantic date.

A good day on bedrest: After some creative maneuvering, your husband finally navigates around Mount Belly to get close enough for a quick kiss.


A good day: The weather is sunny and beautiful.

A good day on bedrest: What's "weather"?


A good day: You prepare your favorite meal for dinner.

A good day on bedrest: You manage to eat a meal without getting it all over yourself and your sheets.


A good day: Your toddler takes a nice long nap so you can take a break and surf around online.

A good day on bedrest: You get a break from surfing around online by taking a nice long nap.


A good day: The young stud at Jiffy Lube flirts with you while he changes your oil. You are so hot!

A good day on bedrest: You can reach the back of your legs with the electric shaver. You are so hot!


A good day: Magic elves cook your meals, clean your house, and wait on you hand and foot like a princess.

A good day on bedrest: ...Oh wait, that one is the same. (Thanks Mom and DH!)

MissMVK said...

Love your list. You are doing amazingly well and keeping your humor intact! Way to go, sister. My bet is still on 37 weeks. You heard me. THIRTY SEVEN.

E said...

It can't be easy being on bedrest. I get frustrated when I am tired and can't do the things I want to.

Hang in there! Not too much longer for you, but hopefully at least a few more weeks.

Sarah said...

Cute! Way to go little elves! We already know Sunny is amazing, but you get major props too!

WiseGuy said...

Ha Ha Ha...totally loved it!!!

I was especially laughing at the Mount Belly, electric shaver and Starbucks one...

And thank you Sunny for commenting on that post of mine. I was beginning to doubt if I had gone too obtuse.

Stay cool, Ms. Fragrant Hair!

Alyssa G said...

So funny!! Keep that sense of humor, you will need it with three boys around!!

Furrow said...

Being on bedrest has not hampered your sense of humor one bit. I know you can't wait to be out and about. I'm betting on 34-35 weeks, so maybe you'll be sprung before spring is in full swing.

Jen said...

You are nearing the end! Granted the end comes with two newborns and a toddler to care for. But hey, change is good.

K said...

Aww the last one was so sweet!!! I loved the list, just a few more weeks to go!!!

Lavender Luz said...

I just love this.

Let's hear it for the elves!

Nicky said...

I haven't even heard of most of these shows you're watching. Has nobody brought you a stack of decent mind-numbing DVDs? Entire seasons of your favorite shows, available on demand!

Beautiful Mess said...

HA! I love it! Although I wasn't on bed rest last month, I was restricted to the couch because I couldn't do anything. I totally get the shaving thing! Do you know how hard it is to shave your left arm pit when you can't old a razor with your right hand?! lol.

Here's to a GREAT bed rest day, love!
*HUGS*

What an awesome list! I can confirm that Starbucks still exists. Well sort of. Here in Japan it's a different kind of Starbucks. For example, the seasonal beverage last month was an Earl Gray latte and this month is "Steamed Sakura." I'm guessing that's like a latte without the coffee and some kind of cherry blossom flavoring but I rarely get in the place (only in the BIG city of course) so I'm not about to spend $3.00+ on what sounds like a hot cherry milkshake.

You're doing great!!

Alana said...

What a great list! Loved your ending with the sweet shout out to your Mom and DH. Yay! :)

Michelle said...

LOL Love it!...I am ashamed to say I have been watching Tool Academy. It is a train wreck I can't take my eyes off.
lol

Michele said...

Adorable list! Love it!

jrs said...

your list was quite amusing. Thanks for the laugh. Here from LFCA. hope you have a good day on bedrest tomorrow

Kim said...

LOL! Love it! We're on bedrest right now too, so I can totally commiserate. I've long since given up on shaving the backs of my legs though... ;)

cowgirltn said...

Oh lord that was funny.

Mary said...

Just checking in on you, sounds like you are in better spirits, you are doing an AMAZING job baking those boys!!

Carrie said...

Katie said...

This is such an upbeat post!!!! I love it!

Jingle said...

that is very uplifting note!
Happy Thursday!

Devon said...

this was hilarious!!! and as a post-fellow bedrester...i SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo get it!

Red said...

Hhhmm, what does it say about me that I relate more to the 'good day on bedrest' statements than the others? Eg, I always wash my hair every 3 days and I never fit into skinny jeans! :)

IF Optimist, then... said...

Keep it up. The bedrest sucks but you are my hero and look, today it's Sunny and bright out there!
