she's flirting with this crawling business. and she had solids for the first time the other day. next week she'll start shaving her legs and wearing a training bra. is it too early for me to be baby hungry? pretend i didn't say that.
i'm supposed to be running a half marathon in two weeks. if any of you out there would like to throw up a prayer on my behalf, i'd be grateful. i was "in training" back in june, and then i decided that i would take the entire month of july off to rest up and carbo load. the race is august 6th, or something like that. i sort of have a few good excuses why i've fallen off the wagon, one of them being that indie and i took a trip up to priest lake to visit my friend kathryn at her family's cabin. dear hudson crew: we loved it. thanks for making indie and me feel like family and letting us crash your party. and sorry about the bat. i have no idea how the little germ vector got in the cabin, but in some twisted way i think the rabies horror story i told only hours before had something to do with it.
i'm kicking myself that i didn't take more pictures of our trip. i don't have any excuses. kathryn takes better pictures than i do anyway, so click here for a glimpse of the good life. and these are hers, too:
there's a 30 week fetus under her shirt. commence passing judgments. and yes, we look alike. one of her doormen just assumed i was her sister and would wave me through every time.
and, let's see. what else needs discussing. i miss my husband. i've seen him for 24 hours in the last three weeks. that's not an exaggeration. i'm obsessed with the movie inception, but i think if i watch it a third time it's going to make my brain start to hemohrrage out my ears. see it immediately, and then explain it to me. and as if i didn't have enough vices, the iphone application words with friends has kicked my productivity levels in the teeth. i may get owned by this half marathon, but i can optimize tile value and defensively block a triple word square like it's nobody's business.
