as good as it gets

I hope I'm not counting unhatched chickens but I think I'm feeling a little bit better today. Hopefully tomorrow will be another step in the right direction.

I rested for the first half of the day and then went out for a manicure and pedicure. My feet feel soooo good. I hadn't intended on getting anything fancy but I totally crumbled under the nail tech's (admittedly gentle) pressure and ended up with the top-of-the-line, paraffin-wax, extended-massage model. I figured it might be a while until I have time for such self-indulgence again! I was quite the celebrity in the nail salon, as I am most places I go these days. I got one "100% girl" vote, one "100% boy" vote, and one "100% twins" vote. Ummm.... I guess it could have been worse. She could have asked if it was quads.

In the afternoon, M and I took her mom to the symphony. The program was fantastic and the baby seemed to like it quite a bit. There's been a decrease in movement lately (presumably correlated to the lack of uterine real estate) but it rocked out during the concert. We stopped on the way home for Pad Thai and gelato. Mmmmm.

It's now just after 8pm and I'm already in my PJs, holding down the couch with the dog and waiting for M to light a fire for us to sit in front of. I'm going to go ahead and call this an Awesome Day. It stinks that I have to go back to work tomorrow, but it's my last Monday at work until June 1st so I can't complain too much about that either!
