I haven't made updating my journal a priority the last two weeks or so. I think it is mainly just being exhausted - I have 4 weeks left and am getting pretty tired, both physically and mentally. I'd like to record these last few weeks because what if its my last pregnancy? On the other hand, its all I can do to get through each day.

As if the timing couldn't possible be worse (no matter how protected I am by law, hiring a person who couldn't start work for another 4 months is asking a lot), I have a job interview on Wednesday that I'm doing a bit of actual lusting for.

Logging food and exercise - what novel concept. (For me).


This weekend, I got a "Peshee Mommy" followed by a hand stroke to my cheek. Not sure where my heart is since that RIPPED IT OUT OF MY CHEST.

In the middle of putting on his shoes, he HAD to go across the room to turn one of his multi-colored rings upside down in order to match the CORRECT order of colors. I involuntarily said, "Holy..." meaning to finish the utterance, but stopped myself so that he w...
