baby coming. oct 2011. a bit of a surprise. i mean we talk about it all the time, for like the last two years. but then nothing so we kinda just rock along. talk about it a little less. we are getting older. it will be fine. then..............HELLO!

happy, scared, sad, confused, excited, terrified, overwhelmed, questioning, joy, fear, content.

yeah that is pretty much it in a nutshell by the minute around here.

i go from what the hell are we doing to oh this is the happiest i have been in a long time.

my mind says your old, to old and then in the same breath what a blessing.

all normal. all natural. all ongoing.

baby, it's been a long time. can't wait to hold you tight.

out of the mouth of rowdy one....

"good food brightens the spirit"

that is what he told me tonight as we ate.

we were watching jamie at home on the cooking channel and jamie was cooking a chicken tomato potato something. rowdy one wanted to go to the store at that moment and get everything to cook it. i told him we could make a quick stir fry. he was good with that.

it is basically pw's sesame noodles and then i stir fry whatever veggies i have and add them. YUM! tonight we had cauliflower, purple cabbage, broccoli, carrots and squash. i have also done the same recipe of hers but instead of noodles done brown rice or couscous. all good.

rowdy one helped me make it. he comments on how colorful it is and then...then....says good food brightens the spirit......i stopped for a second and just stared. did jamie say that? no, i did. i smiled. he is such a blessing to me!

cherish the little moments.

life overwhelms me. i don't want to read (GASP!). i don't want to get online (DOUBLE GASP!) or cook (not so much a gasp).

at the moment i am overwhelmed. with school, kids, work, laundry, homework, yard work, housework, people, news, blogs.......

overwhelmed and spent.

i just want to stay in bed for the entire weekend.

see ya on the other side......
