Snug with a Bug
I've been in bed since Wednesday night with a nasty bug. I guess the flu. The fact that I can sit up and type makes me feel like I'm turning the corner a bit. I have lots of visitors in this house who come in to check on me, give me a rub on the arm, brush the hair out of my face, offer to get me drinks, popsicles. But all very good at letting me be. Even Roman came in and crawled up next to me, cocked is head and said "oh mommy, you're so cute", as he rubbed my cheek. I can assure you that I am currently not cute.
Yesterday I watched both installments of the 2002 miniseries of Dr. Shivago which totaled 4 hours. I had never seen the 1965 original so I don't know how it compares, but the story is really amazing. I also watched a documentary called First Position that follows young ballet hopefuls. Wow. Having a look at their tortured feet made my sick bed feel not so bad.
I've also had the company of sweet little bumps and kicks from this little girl, dreaming of what she'll look like, pondering her name. Thank you so much for sharing in our joy and for all of your kind comments on my last post.
