Hello. I just recovered from the worst stomach cramps ever. If labour contractions, period cramps and constipation had a threesome, then I just babysat their lovechild. For four days. Ouch.
It was like I got stabbed from within, mostly on the left side of my belly. The pain was so intense that I was not able to move. I am still not sure if it was my period that caused it, because I normally don't experience any menstrual cramps. I will keep a close eye on how I feel when I bleed next month.
I have been cutting myself a lot of slack because of a few things that are happening in my life right now. I am not sure who is reading my blog, but there seems to be a small group of you returning every week? I imagined your disappointment when you checked back on Sunday, to find that there had not been a new post. Sorry! All I have to offer is this very late post, on a Thursday, with these random details about myself:
1) Moving houseWe are two weeks from moving into our new home! That is unreal. My husband and I have been basically living on Facebook Marketplace. We bought a washing machine, sofa and dining set on there. All second-hand.
If you have been following me on Instagram, you might have seen all the various dining sets that we looked at, including those two beautiful ones that we missed out on. The one that we ended up getting was exactly what we wanted, at less than 20% of our dining set budget.
Better yet, it was located 5-10 minutes away from where we live now. That was so lucky, because otherwise we would have to spend a ton of money driving to-and-fro Denmark for the pick up.
I am now sick of having my eyes glued to my phone, but my husband is still sending me stacks of items to look at. I will procrastinate on that.
2) MarriageI had a big fall out with my husband last week. In my last, desperate attempt to communicate to him, I wrote him a 6-page letter. It had three distinct components: money, our family and the new house.
I typed it on the computer, printed it out, stapled the pages together and placed it where he would see it. I expected him to ignore it, but he read it and thanked me for taking the time to write it. We discussed some of the things in the letter. Our relationship improved. 💑
