A long week

It seemed like not much happened in the first few days after Purple and Littletree left – I spent most of my time at home, studying and cleaning up around the house. I chatted with Littletree on Skype; she’s having fun in Israel, and playing with her cousins. (Here’s a webcam shot from skype)

Last Tuesday, Química came up for a visit – it’s been great to spend some time with her, and she might be moving up here next year.

This week, I had 2 births, one was long – I was with them for 40 hours, which but the mama eventually birthed a beautiful little girl. Then I drove home at 3am from an hour away after the birth to collapse into bed.

The next day, thankfully, I got a bit of rest, tried to catch up a bit on study and work, and was called to another birth the following morning!

Thankfully, this labour was an easy 3 hours, a little girl born underwater without problems.

I was still pretty wiped out by the end of it all, and it was great to come home to Química, who is a massage therapist, and cooked me a wonderful roast dinner :)

Finally, I’m not on-call till after we get back from New Zealand, and I’m starting to work on a bunch of projects around my house and garden. Not to mention some well deserved rest after 2 births in 2 days!
