Hola, blog. Things around here are better, health-wise.
I reeeeaaaally need to go to this gorgeous staircase in San Francisco some day.
I’m currently taking the OAB medication prescribed by the urologist, which has helped about 80%. I don’t want to be on it forever, though…it causes dementia. And I certainly don’t need any help in that direction!
I’m also taking a small dose of a medication called amitriptyline at night. It was formerly used to treat depression but also works in small doses for nerve pain, and it makes you very sleepy. Much like my beloved Trazodone that I’ve taken for years.
So over the past 3 weeks of nonsense I’ve gone from being a breastfeeding mama only taking 50 mg of Trazodone at night, to a pumping (barely) mama who takes three different meds. BOOOOO.
Next month I have an appointment at the UW with a doctor who specializes in problems like mine. It’s certainly better, but not 100%. Yesterday was kind of a bad day, but I did get my eyelashes done in the morning and then Mumsie and I got our hair cut last night so it wasn’t the WORST.
My mother is here for the week, and it’s been wonderful. She’s getting a whole lot of Goo time in..
…and I’ve had grilled cheese for lunch three days in a row! YES!
Jeff Goldblum somehow is hotter in his old age, eh? I want that space sweater he has on.
I love the Canadian show (also on Netflix) called “Schitt’s Creek” so much, I’m re-watching it from the beginning again. We started watching it when Goo was just born and who can remember that time?? It’s all a blur.
Seattle decided to skip Fall and go straight into winter temps this year, GROSS. I already have my snow tires on. Better safe than sorry, buddy.
These are photos I took during our nap/drive (the car was parked, of course). I decided now that Goo is almost 10 months old and winter has started AND I’ve had all these bladder problems that it’s time to crib train for naps! He’s napping right now. After 17 minutes of sobbing.
Look at what he did while I was in the shower the other night! Whaaat?? Adorable.
Mom and Bear Cub love each other.
Ellen Von Unwerth has been inspiring me with her photography since the mid-90’s.
Current painting project: a lil’ sugar skull for my Aunt Claire.
Mom and Goo reading time.
We’ve been going for dog walks every day, of course.
Goo has a new favorite nook.
She watched the baby this morning while I whipped up these little scarves for us. She picked out the fabric.
Ughhhhh he’s crying again. What was that, a 15 minute nap???!!! Help me Rhonda!
