week 1 down.
I have to confess that I don't love having the kids in school. perhaps if the twice daily walk to pick them each up was less... vertical?
Yesterday I fell asleep against my husband, as he played his latest Xbox game. I've noticed, like I remember noticing 9 years ago (ah, the joys of IBS) that when I am sick or in pain it is simply a matter of having physical contact with him to render me nearly completely better.
I actually read a study several months ago that said on average, simply holding her husband's hand can reduce a woman's stress by 25%. One night last week, I was nauseous and crampy and tossing in bed while he slept next to me. He rolled over, and ended up in contact with nearly all of my left side. The effect was sudden, and quite surprising. I could feel the tension leave my neck and back, and my stomach stopped clenching. I was able to fall asleep in a few minutes.
Too bad I can't market him, I'd be a millionaire. $75 for "Essence of Craig", anyone?
