Yeah, I know it's not until next week, unless you are voting absentee like I (almost) always do. The one time I voted in person it was raining and I stepped in a puddle on the way there. Voting absentee rocks, people.

Although the official countdown (to forty weeks) says six and a half weeks to go, the baby *could* be here (and healthy) in just three and a half weeks. Wow.

Bed Rest

I am working on a knit sweater. Our baby-shower will be put off until after the baby is here.

The weakness in me

Show some emotion

Love and affection

Me, myself and I

Drop the pilot

Living for you



I think my mom played Joan Armatrading to me when I was in the womb. I just love these songs. Yeah, some of the the videos suck.

"Free" Time

I am on bed rest. I am still adjusting to the news. I feel fine, so it's strange to have to stay in bed all the time.

On the positive side, I have been reading a lot. Just finished The Jane Austen Book Club, which a friend read and left with me last weekend. Half-way through Mommy Wars. Perhaps I will finally knit a sweater.

So I spent six hours at the hospital while they ran tests. It wasn't that bad. Most of the time, I got to chit chat with some really nice ladies I will be seeing twice a week for a while. Plus, it was all in a comfortable bed. How can you beat that?

mommy wars

The book is a set of essays by working moms, stay at home moms, and hybrid moms on their career and parenting choices. It's kind of fantastic.

Awesome people I am lucky to know

My husband is awesome and spent the last week protecting me and also saving the world. And he still managed to find time for some boring chores too.

My sister spent the weekend saving the world as well.

I guess with the storms and everything, there was a lot of world saving to do.

My mom is awesome and I need to get her something really good for her birthday.

2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

I checked out Chris Dodd and I guess my candidate has already thrown in the towel. That's just great.

In other news, no wonder I've been so torn between Clinton and Obama.

I [heart] Hillary

I think Hillary Clinton should start a "I [heart] Hillary" campaign, like the "I [heart] NY" campaign that helped make more people like New York City. After all, she's the senator from NY.

Not that I don't like Barack Obama. Congrats to him tonight.

ETA: Of course, perhaps there is a potential problem with that "I heart Huckabees" movie.

Woo! Learner and I had a great New Year's Eve and I am looking forward to so much in 2008!

ETA: Now, besides feeling the baby kick, we can see him kick too! It's weird, but good.
