*is a total snot* That's a grasshopper! Just sayin.
The internet is apparently on vacation. It's so danged BORING AROUND HERE. *wanders off*
Hi, there! We're buried in snow out east. I attended my first birth (in which I wasn't directly involved) on Christmas Eve. Amazing. Hope you had a joyful holiday!
Oh, I need to start our bookclub book already.
Two weeks away from EDD and hormones are raging uncontrollably. I don't think even I could live with me if I had to. Prodromal labor has been going on for at least two weeks. Can someone tell me how in the world I can have such intense contractions and still not go into actual labor until 42 weeks (like I did with the last two)? I don't expect anything different this time. I feel like I'm going out of my mind. Christmas, relatives visiting, a house destroyed and I can't bend over to pick anything up. Apparently I'm the only one around here who knows how to clean. Whoever invented Christmas vacation from school must be giggling at me right now. Overwhelmed can't even begin to describe how I feel right now.
Um, your cricket looks like a grasshopper ; )
So...this time last year I was impatiently awaiting my daughter's birth. I was hugely pregnant, exhausted from the holidays and chasing my toddler around, and SO ready to meet my new little girl! She wasn't born until January 13th...
Needless to say, this holiday season was a lot more enjoyable and relaxing for me.
or a grasshopper...
Damn! It's not even a cricket?
I didn't think it was possible, but I've totally eaten my fill of sweets. I can't even look at a cookie right now. So weird.
Nope, not a cricket. These are crickets:
I'd say crickets are basically brown grasshoppers... at least based on the Eric Carle book, "Quiet Little Cricket." :-) Seriously, it's "six of one, half-dozen of the other," so it's close enough, imo. ;-)
