One thing i detest is that when my life gets really interesting, instead of running to my computer to share the events with my blog buddies, I instead QUIT BLOGGING. This makes NO sense to me.
Anywho, many exciting things have happened. Some I can share here, and others I cannot.
Loads of friends are having babies–this is incredibly fun to watch and learn from. Having two pregnant women at my last job made me realize that being pregnant does not mean you sit at home alone, isolated, and in pain (I don’t know WHY I thought this…not sure I realized I thought this ’til I found myself surprised at how active my pregnant co-workers are). I also realized that you don’t have to gain inordinate amounts of weight when you’re pregnant….VERY reassuring for someone has obsessed with body image, etc., as I am. In fact, all people my age who are having babies are quite fit, and seem to have bounced back from pregnancy very well.
Went to the snow with my hubby and our dog on Saturday–SO FUN…it was absolutely glorious…. We started hiking in this low, dark part of the mountain–and it was FREEZING COLD with an icky, icy wind. So, we went back to car and just went a few miles up, and lo and behold! the sun was out, the snow was sparkling (more like blinding!), and there was no freezing wind. We experienced an interesting phenomenon–since we were hiking in the sun, the snow was melting in a continuous stream off the trees, so anytime we were under the trees that lined the trail, it was like hiking in the rain…something we never anticipated. Our dog didn’t mind, and she looked adorable in the snow, her fur all puffed up and her ears perky and excited.
Must get back to studying now…much love!
