Have you seen it? I just saw it this morning for the first time, and I gotta tell ya, if it doesn’t get you to want to make better choices everyday, then I don’t know what will. If you have seen it, watch it again. If anything, it’ll be a good reminder.
As for me, you better believe I’m going to keep doing my part to lessen the effects of consumption on our world. Thrift stores, here I come!
Christians should have more beautiful gardens, should be more careful to build without cutting down the lovely trees, should be more sensitive about keeping the brook unspoiled as it bubbles through their lands. Sadly, this has not been so. Of course one must speak of the historic and prophetic facts which people need to hear, the truth about G-d and the universe. But this makes much more sense in a setting which shows that action on the basis of truth really does fit in with the universe as it is, and was created. -Edith Schaeffer (The Hidden Art of Homemaking, pg.88)
They say this is when the placenta starts taking over production of the hormones and that things should start to look up as far as nausea is concerned. We’ll see. So far, I haven’t seen much change if any. I’m still nauseated most of the time and the evenings is when it gets worse usually, although yesterday I had some chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and cole slaw. Now that’s progress! Still, it will be nice to get to enjoy foods again.
People that know I’m pregnant tell me I am glowing. Is that just something nice people say? I feel as though I should have bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep at night and an overall yellowish-greenish tint on my face from the constant nausea. Not to mention the bloating. Oh, the bloating! I know my baby is a kumquat right now, but my pants seriously don’t fit. I get about two inches of zipper and that’s pretty much it. Maybe I have half a gallon of amniotic fluid preventing anything from zipping properly. Yes, I’ll just force myself to think that.
It’s early October and fall is finally in the air. The trees are dotted with red and golden and the sidewalks are littered with their remains. I think the weather is going to stick this time, despite last week’s final attempt at summer weather. I am coming to love this time of year more and more (now that I’m no longer in school!) as I get older; or maybe it’s that I am appreciating it more. Either way, Fall couldn’t have begun on a better day – Yom Kippur.
I’m officialy done with my required hours for my insurance course. I clocked in exactly 50 hours at that place; 30 for life, 12 for health and 8 for code. Of course, I didn’t exactly follow all my coursework diligently during those 50 hours. To keep myself from falling asleep during my study time, I amused myself by browsing several websites in between quizzes and chapters (also pages, paragraphs, sentences and sometimes words). Some of which were my LiveJournal, myspace, my friends’ LiveJournals, and other blogs. Among them, more recently (since I’m still infected with the mommy-bug), are The Trixie Update and Sullivan’s World.
I got my hair cut today. On a whim. I just happened to think how long my hair was, and how it wasn’t really clean and how I should really get my hair cut and washed. So I did. I made an appointment next door (from work) and I got my hair cut during my lunch hour.
