Bed Rest Day 1, Hour 3

It's been ordered. And not just a light order of, "lay down when you can," the exact words were, STRICT BED REST. I laughed. I seriously laughed at the nurse and said, "now that's a little dramatic don't you think?" Apparently she didn't think so. To make it even better, not only is this day 1 of bed rest, but I am also confined to my house. Every time I have to pee, I have to go in a bowl and dump it in a jug for the next 24 hours. They said to make sure that EVERY drop I have within the next 24 hours, goes in this jug. And since it didn't come with a cute carrying case, I am assuming they want to me stay home and do it in my own bathroom.
So now, I am in bed and I am bored out of my mind!! Obviously since I have little boy and he can't even wipe his own butt yet, I don't plan on staying in bed all day every day, it just sucks for today since I can't really leave the house.
And I need a manicure.
