Bed Rest: the First few hours

I really, really, really, am trying to follow this bed rest thing. I have some serious cabin fever,even on my days off, so I'm hoping I will be able to entertain myself. So far between last night and this morning, I have done the following things. Keep in mind this was less than 24 hours:

Made 6 headbands/flower clips for Tessa
Spent $79 at Oldnavy.com
Played 15 games of online bingo
Played 3 games of online pinochle
Talked to my mother 4 times
Drank 1/2 gallon of water and 4 cups of coffee (decaf of course)
Taken 3 baths
Slept 9 hours
Watched 2 movies and a disc of Friends (Season 6 Disc 2)

Joel challenged me to see if I could fill the collection bottle for the 24 hour urine collection I have to do. He thought it was impossible, but I am doing oddly well at this challenge. Hence, the 1/2 gallon of water and coffee. It's like a game. A really creepy game. He also bet me 50 bucks on this deal. Little does he know that I already spent that 50 and an extra 29 on Old Navy stuff!

Now, what to do with the next 2+ weeks? Any ideas?

  1. Chad and I were talking about bedrest today and how it's not as fun as it sounds. He claims he'd play Xbox 360 nonstop, so he suggests you get one... I told him that would probably be fun for the first 2 hours and then it'd be enough. Any new news from the doctor?
