Day 16:Let's Get Nuts!

30 Days About Me

Wow. I've done so many crazy things that I can't even begin to think of them all- or maybe I've blocked them out... Probably the most life changing, "crazy" thing I did was elope in Vegas with my husband!!  We had so many people telling us how to do our wedding. Don't do it this date, don't have a big reception, don't invite that person, don't rush in to it... Blah, Blah, Blah, BLAH!! So, we said "Screw it!" and eloped, pissing off pretty much everyone except for my sister who encouraged it and watched my kids while we went. :) Thanks again Sister. It will be 10 years on Sept. 14 and I still say it's the best decision I've ever made.

I gave birth without an epidural a few times. I had already done it “on accident” with Alec, but with Isabel it was by choice. I liked how powerful & “I am WOMAN!! Hear me ROAR!!” I felt afterwards. I planned to do the same with Taj, but gave in after 10 hours of pitocin-induced labor, an hour & 1/2 before I had him. And with Livie I said “Screw it. I know what it feels like and I just wanna watch Napoleon Dynamite in peace” & got the epidural right when it started hurting. She was my favorite, easiest labor & birth. So, I'm thinking the "no epidural" thing was crazy in a  "you are whacked in the head" kind of way.

There's a lot more I could talk about, but it's stuff but I'm gonna have to take the 5th... so I'll just leave it at that. lol
