Today I think it started to hit me that life on the couch will be life as I know it for the next 9 weeks and 4 days. And it's not real fun. I lay here thinking about all the things that need to be done that I can't do. And even though everyone around me has been super supportive and has offered to help, and I'm greatly appreciative, its just not the same as when I get to cross the next item off the to do list. But I will survive. Instead of rushing through the day as usual, I have all the time in the world to stare at my growing belly and watch as Ruby uses me as her punching bag. This little life inside of me is truly amazing!
Today also marks a major milestone. My mom roasted a chicken for the first time ever! I love roasting chicken. There's something so Martha-ish and homey about it. So this weekend when the December issue of Food & Wine came in the mail, I drooled over the Tangerine, garlic and rosemary chicken. I kept giving mom a hard time about making it for me and tonight she did. I'm not sure how many times she had to call my grandmother or friends to ask questions, but it ended up delicious!! And pretty!! All we were missing was the recommended Chardonnay to go with it!
(shhhh...don't tell her. She's so proud, but she roasted it upside down!)
And a few words about Prozac Puppy. Does this look like rehab? I don't think so!
