The Joys of Bedrest

Hey fellow Bloggers,

As you can tell from the title, I'm chilling out the next few weeks on bedrest. Last Wednesday I experienced a slight tear in my placenta, and saving you the gory details, it has since been suggested that I hang low and get plenty of rest. Luckily for me, I started a new job 2 weeks ago and they're very cool and supportive with me working from home. What's even cooler is that my job is in the technical publishing field and I'm up to my eyebrows in B2B social media plans.

So, I guess my point is that I've decided to make lemonade (you know, when life gives you lemons...) and I still consider myself blessed. While my writing has suffered the past 4 months, it doesn't take away from all that I accomplished in the previous year. I'm still a writer with great stories waiting to be told. I have landed an amazing job and I have a beautiful baby girl on the way (hoping she doesn't arrive too soon. I'm only 24 weeks!) Oh, and now I can completely avoid the holiday shopping rush and order everyone's presents online. See? It's all good. There really are some joys associated with bedrest :)

I'm sorry to hear you're on bedrest, but you have a great attitude about it! And think of all the reading you can get done- yahoo!

You have such a great attitude! And I've missed you! I'm sorry to hear about the bedrest orders, though. It sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy, so at least you won't be bored to death. :-)

The one good thing about bed rest is it forces you to sit back and just chill out for a while!! No household duties to get in the errands, no cooking. I was laid up last month for over a a lot of writing done! :)

Good luck!!

I'm sorry about the reason you are on bed rest, but I'm glad it's an option (financially). Make the best of it!

Thank you ladies all so much! I'm very lucky that I have a new job in a field that I love, so that is taking up a big portion of my day. Thank heavens for the Internet!

I'm sorry I haven't been by your blogs lately. I'll see if I can't do something about that. I've missed you all too!
