completely unrelated photo of my little silky shadow, just cause he's so cute.
just popping in to say ow, ouch and damn and offer a reasoning for my prolonged, non-new-baby-snuggling, internet absence - i seem to have a pinched nerve, severe sciatica or pelvic girdle pain which is causing delightful bolts of staggering pain up my back and through my hip with every single step or movement i make. and this started on saturday so it's been four days now of hobbling around like an overweight ninety year old who is recovering from a hip replacement, trying in vain to stretch it out (makes it worse), trying different sitting and sleeping positions (makes it worse), trying a good vigorous rub in the area that hurts like hell and yep, you guessed it, makes it worse. good times.
i'm completely fed up at this point and basically praying to go into labour, which i know is a pipe dream as i still have three weeks till my due date. THREE WEEKS, people. of this. of sincere pain not to mention frustration at not being able to get any of the errands done that i was hoping to this week, my first free week off work. i'm feeling exceptionally sorry for myself.
there has been some sewing, as i have two chairs set up in different stations in my sewing room and alternating between them is bearable for short periods. however, i don't foresee any great show and telling of this sewing, nor a shop update, as there is no way a photo shoot or any kind is happening in my current state. keep your fingers crossed for me, everybody - labour or some miracle loosening of the giant knot of pain in my lower, right hand back, i'll take either, happily.
