Well hi there!
How's it going for you all out there? It's going over here I guess, nothing too exciting on my end. Can you believe that I have no pictures for you? No, really I don't. I won a contest from another blogger and received my goods- and forgot to take a picture. I had some tasty soup yesterday- and forgot to take a picture of it. I found a GREAT new snack at the store last night, ate it this morning and forgot to take a picture of it. I went for a run at lunch today in the gorgeous sunshine, and yet- no snapshots.
Can you handle a wordy post?
I haven't been up to snuff commenting lately, end of quarter smack down at work is starting! So I get my few minutes to surf the web and then I hurry back to doing other things, so if it seems like I'm ignoring you, it's not intentional!
So to answer some of your questions/comments about the baby. YES. It was difficult to sit there and wonder if that could have been me. I was devasted after that happened last year and when I thought about telling my friends about it, I thought it might be ok to let the people close to me in on that grief with me. But then when my friend told us that she was pregnant, I zipped my lip and never said anything. They still don't know about it- and I intend to keep it that way. I held baby Brooklyn and wondered to myself, could this have been me? Fawning over my own son or daughter? Having the Peanut be a big sister already? I cried a little when I left her house, but I think I'm ok now. I'm happy for my friend, she is just how I pictured her as a mom.
To also talk a little bit more about the OAS, YES- OMG IT SUCKS! I hate it! I love fresh fruit!!! And I miss it dearly, but the lip burning and swelling and itchiness, I don't love, so I stay away. And did only Jessie get my joke about being my free pass for other things. I have a one track mind I guess! Haha!
Hopefully on Saturday I will have some time to actually get into the kitchen, but depending on how NICE it is out, I may be out bike riding or something, sooooooo that might not happen.
I will be catching up on everyone's lives ASAP! I swear! *hugs to all*
