“Pretty”

My youngest niece found a marker pen and drew eyelashes on her eyes. I am in awe. She can’t even draw yet! But she knew to draw individual eyelashes all around her eyeballs in black sharpie! I don’t know where she got this idea. None of the women in my family really wear make up so she wasn’t copying anybody.

Things Got Better

Things Got Better

You know what’s great about life, or at least about my life, even when I’m feeling crappy and pregnant 89% of the time? Every time I have a really bad day, I usually have a good day after that.

In fact yesterday, on top of reading so many encouraging comments from readers who’ve experienced these same feelings of worthlessness I have, I actually went for FOUR straight hours without any nausea!!! Either it’s because my body works in waves and after a really bad wave of hormones there is a brief intermission OR it’s because I made chocolate chip cookies for my Dad for father’s day and eating cookie dough is a great way to fend off nausea. Right up there with McDonald’s cheeseburgers and fries and ice cream. I know! I’m going to gain 500 pounds! But on some days, when you’re just so sick of feeling sick, 500 pounds doesn’t seem like the worst thing that could happen.

So yeah, I had a good day yesterday! I owe everyone who commented and emailed me a huge thank you. I don’t know what I’d do without you all. Probably feel worthless.

I also finally finished up the baby bird painting. It’s a little flat and the branches look like nothing that would grow in nature but I consider it a major accomplishment since the day before yesterday I thought I’d never touch a paintbrush again.

Thanks again!

p.s. I threw in the “No Barking” and the girl with the Rainbow-Brite hair picture because they made me laugh. Just a few details that made yesterday a better day. I love a little laugh.
