Here we are now...entertain us

I finished another book on my homework list! Of course, this book wasn't originally on my list...I just put it there today. But it still counts! It was a little new agey (what do you expect from Deepak Chopra?), but I love that stuff and buy every bit of it so I liked it. Here's what I liked: fast to read, very positive, lots of good tips. The main one I pulled was a recipe for making some soothing frozen ice pads to ease post-birth discomfort. I'm not sure where to buy some of the herbs (German chamomile??) but intend to figure it out prior to August. He recommends making them ahead of time and keeping them in the freezer so they're there when you need them.

Now I have to get back to reading the La Leche League book on breastfeeding...sigh. That one is less interesting, but I've got a new plan to tackle it: skim. I don't need to read the chapter on breastfeeding fashion, especially since the version I have is from the 70's.

I'm craving a non-pregnancy book though...I wish all mine weren't packed away in various boxes.

In other entertainment news, we now have cable....baaaaaad news. I haven't had it since I moved here in April and I haven't missed it at all, but I gotta say, it was nice to have yesterday when I woke up with a sore throat and felt too tired and miserable to do anything else. The problem is that when I feel that tired and crappy, I get sucked into MTV. Terrible, I know. I found a show yesterday called 16 and Pregnant. This kind of falls in line with that addiction I had to The Secrete Life of the American Teenager. I don't know what my deal is! Time to see if there's a rerun of Friends or That 70s Show on...
