Am having a wonderful time with my sister in town. We've done tons of baby-stuff shopping and relaxing. We went to the state fair today and I saw the big fat pig, which is always the best part of the fair for me. I can't wait to take my baby to things like that so he can see the animals.

My sister is amazing. She just accepted a job with the UN - with the division that works specifically on women's issues. She is doing wonderful things with her life and I'm so proud of her.

I have one ...

I love my husband. I love him so very much.

We went to a concert at the MN Zoo last night and it was great - The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and CJ Chenier. The Zoo's amphitheatre (sp?) is outside, by a little lake, and it was beautiful. Great music, too. This was my birthday present to Steve. Walnut seemed to like the music, but judging by how much he moves, Walnut likes EVERYTHING. Someone at work told me they watched my shirt buttons move all throughout a meeting from baby moving and kicking ...

This week has been very disruptive - turmoil at work, S wanting to move practically next week, dinner guests on Tuesday, didn't get home from work until about 7:45 last night, and we have a concert tonight.

Don't groan - I do remember my resolve not to overanalyze these crying episodes. I just feel off. Just pla...

I can write for about 5 minutes before work.

My world has totally shifted in the last 24 hours. My supervisor resigned, I was offered his position (but better) but I'd have to stay full time to accept it and I want to go part time after the baby is born. Then, as I'm talking about this with S, he begins to make it apparent that he wants to move sooner rather than later. Further north to be closer to where his real estate company is based. And sooner as in months rather than years. Wow.

Five minutes to journal. Ripple and I went for our walk - it rained last night so it was bit muggy this morning, and I feel like I worked for our walk. The sunrise was lovely.

I didn't feel well yesterday - I don't know how to describe it. Sort of as if my belly were weighing on me and as if something wasn't right inside. Lack of sleep can do that to a person - to me, specifically. I feel asleep at 8, woke up at 10, went back to bed at midnight and slept until 5:30 when I woke up to Ripple...
