It's amazing how the worst pain you've ever felt/felt for longer than any other pain kind of grows on you. I'd forgotten what it felt like to not have it. It feels good! Lifting the toilet seat doesn't hurt me anymore!
I do still need to be careful but luckily through being hurt for so long I'm very aware of my limits. I'm very excited.

Then we got up nice and early on Saturday for a day of fun. Stuart FINALLY took me into Seattle. It's only taken 5 years for it to happen but it happened and it was probably the greatest day ever.
We started off by going into Seattle to see the Troll under the bridge. It was really busy so we didn't get to park. It was a drive by photoshooting. Then we headed to Point Defiance for the zooooo BUT on the way we stopped at the seafront in Tacoma. I love the sea.
We parked at Pike Place and decided to trot about Seattle instead of drive. I was really surprised about this because part of why it's taken so long for Stuart to take me into Seattle is because he's scared of being mugged/raped or that the car would be broken into/stolen. It seems my reasurrances have worked. He is not keen of homeless people and thinks they all want to steal from him, bless his heart. He seemed to be all chillaxed the whole time but tells me there were a couple times he was sweating with fear. What a man.Good thing he wasn't attacked or anything because I'm officially in LOVE with Seattle. I love the atmosphere of the city. If I was single (and American) I'd totally live in an apartment in the middle of Seattle. Stuart could see me living there like that too. Stuart is the complete opposite though. I couldn't even imagine him walking around Seattle. That's part of what made it the best weekend. Miracles happen. Stuart bought me a big bunch of peonies (my favorite flowers) from Pike Place. How romantic.

This week I've had a cold. Everyone else has had it too and it only lasted a day on them. I'm on day 3 now. I wonder if I'm not used to American germs? Hm. It seems to be going away, or travelling around my head atleast. The pressure started in my eyes, I had tears running down my face all day. Then yesterday it was in my ears, they seem to feel better now that it's wandered off to my throat. My nose isn't as runny and I was able to sleep better last night.
Monday evening Stuart's grandparents came into town to visit. I've been quarantined whilst they get to go have fun. Today they're at the zoo :( Hopefully they have something fun to do tomorrow when I'll feel 100% better! I really wanted to go to the zoo. Oh well. They'll be here til Friday morning.
On Sunday Stuart was looking for something online and ended up with a huge virus on our laptop. Curses. It was so bad that he couldn't open the 'start' menu or delete the bloody thing. He had to reinstall everything on the computer. We've not been able to connect to wireless since then. Today I can't make it connect to anything so I'm on my MIL's computer whilst they're at the zoo. Did I mention they've all gone to the zoo? Sob.
Last Friday we went to see the new Indiana Jones film - Stu didn't have to work on Saturday. The film was alright. Harrison Ford still has it but I'm not sure if Steven Spielberg does.
Other than that nothing's really been going on. The weather's been good - super sunny or rainy. I like both. Stuart's not working over time this week so he gets home an hour earlier which is nice.
I'm aiming for 20 preggo friends now. The 10 I know of are all due around the same time, there are other who are due sooner. Pregnant? You're my friend? Tell me! I need to write down the names so I remember...

It started as a dull day but right about 3 o'clock it nice and sunny!
I met Stuart and Megan from work today which naturally meant getting a Rocky Mountain Factory Apple...
I don't really remember anything else that happened on Thursday but I didn't post this then...
