Day 80

I want to learn to sew on a sewing machine.

I want to make this for Corinne - I saw it on pinterest:


I also want to make dresses out of clothes that don't fit me the right way anymore. 

That would be fantastic. 

So - 

I'm starting to feel dizzy with all of the things I want to do

-be a supermom to a superbaby

-write an amazing novel

-learn to sew

- run, run, run

-home improvements

-visit my peeps every once in a while 

-help Stevie with all of his awesome charitable ideas

I really do want a lot...but I don't necessarily think that is a bad thing.

Sometimes I think about Sparta v Athens...the people who worked out all the time and the people who studied all the time. I think Americans are supposed to be both of those. Smart and strong. They're supposed to be everything - or at least they feel that way a lot. And then in trying to be everything we all get spun up and caught up and all of a sudden you're running on a treadmill watching some muted footage of butts getting smaller on t.v. and thinking, "My God, look at all those shrinking butts on T.V." and then you lose track of your train of thought because of all those butts.

That just happened to me the other day.

Anyway- I can't speak for all of's just the way it feels to me. So I think what I'll do is just try not to feel so overwhelmed all the time. Just do my thing....and dream my dreams during my busy day and then maybe some of them will come true. Maybe all of them will come true. I feel like if you're throwing a bunch of balls in the air, you have a higher chance of catching one than if you didn't do anything at all.

You never know. I just hope that butt show isn't on when I go back to the gym - it was disturbing to me.

Day 78

The pictures are up on facebook from our professional photography session!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is good that we did it last Saturday, and not this Saturday. Poor baby girl has got a little cold. It has been progressing throughout the day.

She was doing fine this morning, we even went on a walk for Autism Awareness! We lost a sock or two somehow, (we even saw someone holding her sock, but said, "No, that can't be her sock, we had those socks totally tucked into her pants....and she's got a blanket tucked in on top of that! - Apparently the sock is better at escaping than Nemo). She was nice and snug and warm, though....and her feet were totally covered by the blanket the whole time. We thought all was well.

I mean, even with the sock casualty, we made it back in one piece....until her eyes got watery. And she started coughing. And the liquids that fell from her face flowed like the great Niagara.

Poor baby.

She has been upset on and off all afternoon. The last hour and a half have been the worst so far. She is in a light sleep right now. I am typing as softly as I can....the only thing that soothed her was when I stood with her underneath the ceiling fan in the kitchen. She loves ceiling fans. They are all her dearest friends. She is immediately happy if she sees one. It doesn't even have to be on. It just needs to exist and be within her eyesight. Once these requirements are met - bam! Happiness.

Thank you for all of the comments on Corinne's pictures!! We love her so much. I am going to go for now. I hope the baby feels better soon!!!!
