But I have had nothing to say.
I don’t know if my orgasmic reaction to Obama’s win sent me into a nigh month-long petit mort or what, but whatever it was: I’m back.
So, to get you caught up on all things Beege:
*We bought a new car! Well, new to us. It’s a 2004 Kia Optima. We didn’t get a great deal on it, but it seems to be a good car, and we got a very reasonable payment, so: now we’re a two car family. As freaked out as I got over the idea of taking out a car loan, it HAS been nice not having to share the CR-V (and by “share” I mean: me begging for rides from my parents whenever I didn’t work 8-5 and I could just go to work and come home with M). It’s a 5-speed, and I love that, since I love driving a standard.
*Sarah is allergic to something. We know not what. We’re using the same soaps, detergents and shampoos that we’ve used her entire life. She hasn’t eaten anything that she hasn’t eaten for pretty much the entire time she’s been eating solids. But for the better part of a week, her little body has been one gigantic hive. Poor baby…I wish I knew how to make it better. We took her in last Friday, and he said to bring her back on Tuesday if it wasn’t better…it’s better. But it’s not gone. We didn’t go back to him, and I’m sort of second-guessing myself on that, but: she’s finally starting to act like herself again. That’s what I’m most thankful for this Thanksgiving.
*My brother got engaged! This is fabulous news, as I had told him that if he didn’t propose to Girlfriend, he was out of the family and Girlfriend was in. They asked M and I to do their wedding. Girlfriend said she couldn’t imagine anything better than to have two people with such a strong, loving, meaningful marriage presiding over her marriage to Brother. Awww…she got me with that one. 🙂
Now I get to go sing and rock my sweet babe to sleep. I’m home for bedtime so rarely thanks to my present occupation as Shopgirl, and with the holiday season just a scant 36 hours away: will be home even less. I’m going to go snuggle my Boog into my lap, feel her curls tickle my cheek, and sing her favorite lullaby until her bright blue eyes begin to drift closed…motherhood is grand. 🙂
Thanksgiving blessings to all of you, my friends!
