Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

Frances Ha. 9 out of 10 stars. At first I found the dialogue a bit disjointed and awkward but I don’t know if I just got used to it or it appealed to me more after it settled in my brain after sleeping on it. Shot in black and white, it was lovely to look at and Greta Gerwig made the movie work I think. … Continue reading Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

looking forward and back

I love quotes. And this one by Bill Vaughan made me laugh. An optimist stays up to see the New Year in. A pessimist waits to make sure the old one leaves. Is it a pessimistic quality to love cynicism like that? Ah well, I count it as part of my charm. And here’s another one, because I also love Jay Leno. Now there are … Continue reading looking forward and back

how do i bring sexy back?

You know those women who claim to love their new post-childbirth-bodies?  The ones who expound on the beauty and utility of their new boobs and maintain that they have embraced their stretchmarks as some honorable “badge of motherhood”? I am not one of those women.  And those women are obviously lying.  I’m just sayin’. I agree with these same women when they say how awed they are that their … Continue reading how do i bring sexy back?

the most boring doctor’s appt ever

I’m thankful that my pregnancy has been relatively “boring” with no complications and whatnot.  I really am.  That said, today was the ultimate in boring appointments.  There’s no further progress from last week and Sami’s head still needs to drop some more, after which the doc told me I will begin experiencing “sharp stabbing pains in the bladder area”, but not to worry because this … Continue reading the most boring doctor’s appt ever

38 weeks!

Um yeah, so I have two weeks to go and it will be my due date!  I really can’t believe we are THIS close to meeting baby Samantha.  I wonder what she’ll look like?  I can’t imagine.  I go back to the doctor tomorrow for my 38 week visit but am behind in updating on what happened last week so I’ll do that now and … Continue reading 38 weeks!

wanna play…

…catch up that is?  It seems that real life, including not enough sleep, have taken a lot of my time away from the “internets”.  Ah well, that’s just how it goes I guess.  Basketball:  First of all, can we just say wow and congrats to the Belmont Bruins for what was apparently a great game against Duke tonight?  I somehow missed the game but tuned in at … Continue reading wanna play…

12-week appt

Right now I’m eating those yummy sugar cookes you get in the clear plastic containers at Kroger.  The ones with the pink frosting and sprinkles.  And I don’t feel guilty about it.  Just so you know. Sometimes I think I might be narcoleptic.  And arthritic.  But then I remember, no, I’m just pregnant.  I felt like I could have taken a lovely nap in my spinach … Continue reading 12-week appt
