Friday - after completing all job responsibilities husband put baby down for I managed to catch a 30 minute snooze.
Score - 1 for "light" bed rest"
Baby woke up a little early so we cuddled on the couch for about a 1/2 hour watching cartoons
Score - 2 for "light" bed rest"
We both got bored so I moved onto reorganizing one shelf of books and sorted through old magazines while sitting on the floor.
Score - 1 non rest activity (because it required far more effort in stretching than I anticipated)
Moving onto dishes because the sink was full of dirty ones and there were no clean bottles.
Score - 2 non rest activity (because I was told no household chores)
Moving onto dinner because well I needed to eat! Turn coffee table upside down so toddler doesn't continue to stand on it in a brazen attempt to get my attention causing me to constantly pull her off and put her in time out.
Score - 3 non rest activity (on feet longer than I anticipated)
Let toddler outside for 15 minutes around 7pm while dinner is cooking - temperature is still 90 degrees and sweltering.
Score - 4 non rest activity (due to over heating and having to carry kicking screaming child back inside)
Finally at 7:30 eat dinner with toddler; she happily eats the Paprika Chicken and Kielbasa on egg noodles and put her to bed by 8.
Score - 3 "light" bed rest"
Finish evening at the computer watching the past weeks episode of Glee and reading blogs for 2 hours.
Score 4 "light" bed rest"
Total for "light bed rest" = 4
Total for "non-rest activities" = 4
Okay we are even. So I equally rested for the amount of work done. Maybe that's not so bad.
