This week has been much less eventful than the last. After recovering from the flu I have finally been able to get back into my rhythm. I noticed last week that I was having trouble getting fully re hydrated after the flu. Also, I felt a little swelling in my legs and feet. Now I already have small feet with chubby little toes so I was not a big fan of the swelling. It was quite uncomfortable. I "made" Brian take me to the beach Saturday, Sunday, and Monday for walks so I could put my feet in the cold water while getting the circulation going. It seemed to do the trick because I haven't had anymore swelling since. Even after standing for 8 HOURS at work yesterday my feet held up. It looks like I just needed to get moving. I have had much more energy lately and have loved taking advantage and getting a lot of exercise (mostly walking and stretching, but I'll take what I can get).
Well I am so excited for this weekend! I am heading home for probably the last time until at least after September. While I'm up there my sister-in-law and mom are throwing me a shower. I will admit I have peaked at my registry to see the gifts that have been purchased because I'm not a fan of surprises. I know, I know I'm terrible! I just can't help it. I have already looked up who the Bachelorette picks in the end. I just like being in the know. I'm sure there will be plenty of surprises though. I can't wait for the good company and the good food. I am also excited to show off the gifts we receive with you next week :)
