There is the baby!! Well, there is my tummy, which houses inside it, the baby!! I am doing well, and as soon as I can find a scanner, I will post images of the blob from our last sonogram. Still suffering from interminable exhaustion, but the upside is.. I am getting a lot of rest!
Monkey is starting to get used to the idea of school. She seems to enjoy it, though is always sad when I drop her off. I am finding the extra time very calming and the opportunity to read and relax very nice. I wish more of my friends were here to hang out with me while she is in school. (Especially you law people who aren’t working yet.) However, I still find a lot to do. For example: I am busily imagining all sorts of ways for a pregnant woman to picket pharmacies refusing to distribute birth control. I think it will make an interesting image. I also have been trying to make some interesting jewelry, and learning more crochet. I am reading like my life depends on it, maybe because my sanity depends on it. I am getting some exercise and cooking lots of interesting things.
Most importantly, I am beginning to like it here. It is not like home, I don’t love it, but it is a pleasant place to be. There was a street fair today, we went and ate funnel cakes. There was a carnival on the boardwalk last week that Monkey, Shane and I attended. There are orchards where you can pick your own fruit and the beaches are still lovely. So all in all it is not a horrible place to live. If you can get past the rude driver’s, the impatient people, the lack of real mexican food, and the bugs , it is pretty nice.
So, we come home to visit for the wedding in eleven days!! See you all for hugs soon!

Nice picture, cookie! We’re very excited to see you (all 4 of you) in a couple of weeks. We keep having to explain to Caitlin that you’re just visiting and not moving back.
oooh…. sorry Caitlin! Marlena loved your note!! We miss you too!
Lovely photo, Catt. And I’m there for the lip balm. Mmmm, chocolate lip balm. Why are my lips so chapped? Could it be that I keep licking off the CHOCOLATE LIP BALM? Seriously, it sounds cool. Love and hugs.
You’re making me hungry with your chocolate talk . . .
By the way, that has got to be one of the best pictures of you ever!
