Grateful Friday


- My appointment with Ruth my midwife on Tuesday went great. I'm getting more and more excited. When she said I was coming back in 3 weeks instead of 4 and then after that they would get closer together I couldn't believe it. When she said that I realized I don't have that much longer yet. At other times I feel like I have an eternity left.

- Spending the morning with my mom yesterday. She once again bought us clothes and lunch. When John came home I told him and he just shook his head and said how grateful he is that our family's can help when times are a little tougher. I'm so grateful for my mom, just the small things like being able to wear a new pair of pants or a new shirt make me feel so good. I know that sounds so material, and it is I guess, but when I'm feeling huge and sloppy, a new outfit somehow changes more that just my outside appearance. Thanks mom.

- Feeling the cool morning air every morning when I take the garbage out.

- Watching the VMA's last night. I love award shows.

- Making Risotto last night and having it actually turn out tasting good. I'm made it in the past and for some reason it is always inedible. I used Barely instead of Arborio rice and it was very good.

- Jack's friend Maya is turning 4 tomorrow, Jack has been talking about her party all week.

- Blue cheese.

Yes, blue cheese is the best there is. Well, gorgonzola and feta aren't bad, neither is mozarella. Whenever I talk about cheese I think of that commercial at Christmas time with the little red haired girl who gets a living room full of toys. The dad says, 'that must have been some cookie' and she says, "i didn't leave him cookies, i left him cheeessseee'. (= Sorry, I got all reverent for cheese.
I think there's nothing wrong with being excited about new clothes, especially when you're pregnant. Like Nina, I'd lvoe to see some more photos of your beautiful pregnant self!
