Its 2:30am - I woke up at 2 to a huge clap of thunder that started my heart racing. It interrupted a dream musical (as in a musical production) where people were beginning to sing/dance about the great strike of 2001. (!?!?) I think being woken up was probably a good thing if that's where this dream was headed.

If pregnancy is in the air, so is marital conflict apparently. My heart is breaking in a hundred different places.

Edited from an email to my sister: "I'm freaking out a ...

Okay. I've been trying not to dwell on it today, but I give up. I'm downright uncomfortable. I do not know what Turtle is doing, but she is pushing on areas that I didn't know could feel anything. Ugh. I keep telling myself to ignore it, but its getting difficult. The heartburn alone is non-stop.

Will is in the bathtub right now, and I have the lap top in the bathroom with us. He always requests a "baf" after going to the park. He says, "Baf. Make bubbuls." When I come i...

Saturday, September 22nd 2007

I'm listening to Will talk (yell, rather) to himself through the monitor. He's jumping on his matress, and describing the people he can see in the pictures on the wall in a collage. "Daddy, Tibby, Mommy, Gwa-ma, Faddy" He is also telling himself to calm down ("cam dan";). Its not working, though.

Click and Clack on NPR have a position they credit as being their "Working Moms" expert, and the name ends up sounding like "her ass must be dragging" - that feels so apt this week.

I left the office early today since I had not meetings or other deadlines. My candidate of choice verbally accepted the position, which is great. This week was intense - I had meetings with the integration team, our new VP, our new AVP, and have to plan for final stages of a mjor project next...
