because it suddenly got hot, my feet have suddenly swollen enough to not fit into any of my shoes or sandals any more. we got these at the dollar store, and I added the strap around the back to help them stay on better.
We had our ward camp-out in this area. This picture doesn't do it justice, and I forgot to take one before we left. We also didn't stay as long as we had planned due to weather and my hurting/not being able to walk as well as planned. so you get this horrible picture taken from the car.
I have to admit to being fairly impressed with how these turned out. There was no where to pull off the side of the road to take these, so these were taken while leaning over and taken through the steering wheel, while making quite the turn.
Since J has gotten bigger, I've found that I can only sleep on my right side. this has been horrible, causing me to wake up multiple times with hip and back pain, and no way to relieve it. After a nap on couch in the reclining position, I realized I should be able to make the same thing work in bed with my sitting up pillow on it's back. It's been a life saver. now I can at least roll over onto my back if I need to. And man, does it feel good. :)
With little J on the way, we decided that we can't be living in an apartment that stays around 90* all day long. so we got a small AC unit. It has been amazing. Mostly, we run it at night while we are sleeping, and it stays cool for most of the day. but I know that it will be a huge help later as it keeps getting warmer. it only cools off half the apartment, but that's really all we need it for. when it starts to get hotter, I just might start spending the day hanging out in the back of our apartment.
