I Burned Dinner and Feel Like I’m Dying

I think this picture sums up my life really well:
Not enough time or hands to do all the things I need to.

Since my ER trip for my gall bladder attack two weeks ago I’ve eaten really well. And by really well I mean a really boring, bland diet with practically no fat.
Well, two weeks into eating well and feeling better got me feeling almost normal. And almost normal people occasionally eat a treat, right?
Eating this delicious pumpkin cookie was not a good idea. Eating two (one after breakfast and one after dinner, naturally) was an even worse idea. My body let me know this by going into another attack, this one so much worse than the first! The pain was SO FREAKING BAD!! Like labor x10! It lasted a full hour and a half and was basically torture! I would’ve sobbed through it if crying didn’t make it feel even worse!
And Ember was hungry and refuses a bottle so I had to nurse her through it! Agony I tell ya!

NO more fat for me!! And I guess I’m getting my butt to a surgeon pronto! “Please, take this wretched gall bladder out, doc.” That’s what I will say.

The last two days it’s been hard to take pictures. Ember must be going through a growth spurt or something because she wants to be attached to my boob ALL day.
No really, ALLLLLLLLLL DAAAAAAAAY! And night.
It’s a bit extreme but at least she’s eating well and is healthy, right?

“Where is your boob, mother? Why did you hide it away in that bra? I was not done yet!”

Ember likes being outside.

Brooklyn – still in love.

Tonight I was giving Payson a bath and Ember’s eyes were so huge listening to the water running and Payson being loud.

I just finished pumping at the same time as I finished this post. How funny.
I think I’ll go to bed now. Thirty minutes ago Ember drank so much she’s in a milk coma that should last another hour.
I hope.

  • Oh no! Here's hoping someone will take out that troublesome gall bladder. No fat, that would be hard!

    I'm amazed at how you do it all, 4 little kiddos, homeschooling and nursing. And the whole keeping up with everything else. And a newborn who's not even a month old. Wow! πŸ™‚

  • Oh my, that second picture looks like she's licking her lips! More milk mom! Guess she's making up for not latching well in the beginning.

  • Sounds like the 3 week growth spurt. They hit them at 3w, 6w, 3m, 6m. Leah was dead on within about a few days of all of those. Just keep doing what you're doing because you're doing great! I hope you can get that blasted gall bladder out asap!!

  • First of all, that is awful about your gall bladder!!! My mom had hers removed a few years ago! If you can't even eat a cookie, then take that sucker out!!! (As if you have lots of time to schedule a surgery and recovery time into your life and all!) Either way, I hope you are able to have it removed soon!

    Also, THANK YOU for commenting on my blog! You, the busiest person I know, actually takes time to write to me and that means so much! You are seriously one of the ONLY people that ever says anything on my blog! When I'm posting something I think to myself, “well, even if no one else in the world cares about this post…I know that my Mom and Ariana will!” πŸ™‚ Oh and yes I did cut Levi's hair! I just keep trimming it and it grows so fast! Thankfully it is curly, so I can't really mess it up too bad! πŸ˜‰ While I was typing this, he came running in the room to me and started saying he was a puppy, and licked my face. Nice.

    Anyway…back to your blog! Ember is looking so alert and wide eyed! She's so stinkin cute!! πŸ™‚ I have no idea how you are nursing 24/7. I'm exhausted for you! I cracked up about the “where is your boob, mother” comment! LOL! πŸ˜‰ You are a wonderful mommy!!

  • You will feel soooo much better after they take the gallbladder out. It's a couple weeks recovery (especially with all you do in a day), but after that you will feel like a new woman. Here's to hoping you are better soon!
