A Few Firsts

October 15, 2010 at 3:41 PM 2 comments

Sometime in the past 6-8 weeks, I was having a particularly rough Sunday. I was tired and nauseous, and John was so sweet to just let me lie in bed as long as I needed. The only problem is that Sunday is grocery day. When it came time to head to the store, he was sweet enough to tell me to just stay in bed and rest while he did our weekly shopping trip.

As sweet as the offer was, I didn’t like the sound of it, and I started to get sad. I told him that I didn’t want him to go alone, and again, he told me not to worry and that it wasn’t a big deal. I got even sadder. I was upset, because we always go to the store together, and I didn’t want something to come in between our weekly ritual. I bursted out in tears and said, “It’s just so sad!” I cried and cried.

Then I started to laugh and cry. I knew my tears were ridiculous, but I couldn’t help it. I just kept crying.

And that was the first of the crazy mood swings.

Last night was the first hint of acid reflux. It was less than thrilling to wake up at 12:30 AM to an urgent feeling that I was going to vomit. I realized it was just acid reflux, and although I might puke, I would probably just be uncomfortable. My trusty Tums were beside the bed, and so I grabbed two and eventually fell back asleep. I just hope this isn’t indicative of too many nights over the next 5 months.

Our FedEx delivery guy stopped by our office earlier today and said it’s supposed to snow in the Black Forest this weekend. The first snowfall? In October? In central Germany? Oy vey. This is going to be a cold winter, and last winter was the coldest Germany had seen in 30+ years. Hopefully this baby will help keep me warm! I still don’t have a winter coat that will fit me past next week. (Seriously, this peacoat is almost too ridiculous to wear. It looks like I’m just too fat for it.)

Anyone else have some recent firsts?

    Really, snow this early? My goodness, and here I was hoping this fog/rain nonsense would hurry and clear up for the weekend.

    It was such a weird summer, weather-wise, that I probably wont be surprised if the weather is weird for the remainder of the year too. Time to go buy Mikey some new gloves/hat/coat/whatever!
