I've done it before, but I'm not going to take the time to find it now. I've been reading blogs for days, weeks, months - forever. Fertility/infertility/parenting - it's everywhere. I think I need to take a break from it all. Maybe vacation is coming at the perfect time. I can't wait. I'm dreading the next two days at work, the fullness of them, but I can't wait to have so many days off in a row, to be away and doing things that aren't work. With my favorite person by my side.
We moved our bedroom into the front room, the fire room, today. The room that was our bedroom until about 7 o'clock tonight, we were going to turn it into a nursery there for about a week - now it'll be a big-ass walk-in closet. I'm cool with this. It's cheaper, for one.
I like this moving, upheaval thing we've been doing. i like the change of it, the newness, the freshness. And the fact that we're vacuuming each room as we go. My sinuses are forever grateful.
I shaved my legs this weekend. I don't think I had since the last time I blogged about it. I'm not looking up how long ago that was, either. It was too long. Kimmie said I looked like a teenage boy - I let that marinate for a week or two and finally decided I was shamed enough to do something about it. I always have the best of intentions - Kat used to shave every day. Why can't I be more like that? When the hairs are only a day old, it's easy to run a razor over your legs real fast while you're in the shower. But I skip a day, then two, then a week, then four...and then you're hiking up your pantleg to show your co-worker/friend your shamefully long leghairs and for some reason it jars you when she says "you look like a twelve-year-old boy".
What the fuck am I talking about?
Let's talk about you - you there, reading this. I love you. I do. You make me feel special. Less than a month ago I had fewer than 45 people subscribed to this here life-expose'; now there are 90. Whoa. Really? 90 of you think I'm saying things here that are worth checking in on regularly? I'm flattered.
And I love reading the things you all have to say. I find so much comfort in the day-to-day of your lives, the struggles we share, the thoughts you have that I recognize as ones that I thought were only mine. I had no idea this is what blogging could bring to my world, and I'm grateful to have found, or been found by, each of you.
And now Jimi's yammering something about something making fun of something on TV and this is my life and I wonder how in the world I got so lucky to be here, in this place, right now, at this time. There is nothing I would change. There is nothing I'd exchange or trade or switch. This is my life, and my life is so good.
