Looking for some closure
Yesterday, I packaged up the maternity clothes that I had ordered and put the boxes in the trunk of my car. This morning, I dropped them off at UPS. I also put away some other pregnancy things: the B6 lozenges that I never needed because my morning sickness ended early, the pregnancy information book from the doctor's office, the couple maternity clothes that couldn't be returned, ultrasound picture of the baby at 8 weeks, some morning sickness tea, etc. It's put away in the back of the closet where I won't see it all the time. I was out all day today- starting with my weekly visit to D's class. I went shopping and met my sister-in-law at Cheesecake Factory for lunch (we shared a piece of chocolate coconut cream cheesecake for dessert). I also finally visited the nearest Lush store (I now have two bath bombs to try out once the doctor OKs baths). I wanted to cash in my Talbot's gift card, but their spring clothes were a bit too colorful and pastel for my tastes, so I'm hanging onto it. I used part of my Kohl's card on a new Calphalon stir fry pan and lid. On the way home, I picked up Thai food (which I probably won't even eat until tomorrow, because I'm still full from lunch). I'm feeling a little down, despite the retail therapy. I know it will take time to heal from this. It's been over a week since we got the news. Tomorrow will be one week since the "event". I am looking forward to getting more weeks between me and all of this.
