one:: we are very excited for the weekend, us three. This will be a weekend of spiritual guidance and family time and good food, and, if we're lucky, good weather and some beach time.

two:: my family is coming to visit (or, three out of five of them, plus maybe the dog, who is the baby). I can't wait to show them a good time in our favorite little place. We've got so many favorite beaches and restaurants and neighborhoods with beautiful homes, I don't know if there will be enough time for all of it!

We REALLY LIKE to walk around pretty neighborhoods. Really

three:: Conrad is ever-admiring of my growing belly. I asked him if he just saw a growing body, or if he actually pictured a baby in there. He said it's just a growing body, and I said that's how I feel most of the time. If I think too hard about the baby that's actually in there, my mind is blown and the room starts to spin and I leak from strange places.

four:: I thought Ninners was going to die. He sometimes lays on his side when he sleeps, and it's really adorable because he's so poofy. If you get up and move around the room, or come anywhere near him, he gets startled and alert. But yesterday, in his state of sleep, he started squealing and squeaking a lot, and twitching his legs. I got up to see if he was ok/wake him up, and he stayed down. That's never happened. So I poked my finger through his cage to stroke his little head, which he likes. That had no affect. Also, his eyes were open, so I naturally was thinking the worst (rodents don't tend to die with their eyes closed). I petted and poked him a few times, and he blinked but was mostly unresponsive and kept twitching. Then suddenly, he looked at my finger, and sat up really suddenly. Then he was fine, and he sniffed and was back to his normal self.
I'm chalking it up to a really vivid, open-eyed rodent dream.

Blurry picture is because if I get too close, he wakes up and stops being adorable.

five:: I need some book suggestions. I finished reading several books on my list and would love some more! Tell me what you like to read.

So many books.


  1. I just read What Alice Forgot which is a nice, light read. Or if you want something longer and heavier, Gone With The Wind is amazing.

  2. Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" is one of my favorites (if you like SciFi). It's a "think book" though, which might not work so well when you've got mommy brain. ;-)

    A non-fiction title that I read recently and loved is "The Mother in Me: Real-World Reflections on Growing Into Motherhood" by Kathryn Lynard Soper. It has short story-like chapters that are perfect for reading with mommy brain.

  3. While you do need to pay attention to the sizing, the sheepskin jackets very fitted and looks very flattering on. Like the leather jacket from and the weather is getting cold, it is the right time to get it.
