Changes make me think of roller skating. I'm pretty sure I've never roller skated to Changes.

The majority of my roller skating happened outside, with the exception of the time we lived in the hovel. The driveway was dirt/gravel as was the road (not that my mother would have let me skate on that road *anyway*), so my mom, being cool like that, rolled up the carpet and let me skate in the dining room. But I don't think Changes was playing *then*, either.

A really good piece by Joe Decker wrt California's Prop. 8

Huh. Now that I think about it, soon after I got pregnant with Sam (before I knew), there was a horrible heatwave in hell Connecticut. And, the same thing happened this year...didn't know I was pregnant then either.

Interesting. Maybe not *very* interesting, but interesting all the same.

~~~

*Really* tired of waking up with a headache. Especially since it sticks around past waking. Bah. *BAH*, I say.

Well, that was weird. Last night, I took a (planned, for once) nap in my computer chair (which was very nice) and woke up with a slightly bleeding scratch on my left arm. As we don't have a cat, I have no idea what happened.

~~~

It's really interesting, realizing that I'm at the beginning of parenthood again. I hoped I'd have a second child, but I'd basically given up. Hell, I gave up *while* I was pregnant...my periods have rarely been consistent and battling nausea isn't a symptom, it's just life. Two weeks after I told Jeff that I figured we'd never conceive again, I took the test and found out we had.

And now, as we go through boxes, working on getting us fully unpacked before the end of the year (or, you know, the end of some year), we each find things for Turtle. Some that be useful pretty soon after arrival and some that will go in the attic to wait.

Sam is going to be a wonderful big sister. Not that I think everything will be hugs and puppies all the time, but we talk about how her life with change and how it will stay the same, and she's very interested in Turtle's development and what she's doing at any given moment. Which can get tiring...I mean, yes, I can feel Turtle move, but I don't have her itenerary.;) Sam has announced that Turtle is a boy. How does she know this? She asked the magic 8 ball at California Tortilla. I told her she has a fifty-fifty chance to be right, just like everyone else.

It's wonderful that Jeff is happy about Turtle with no reservations. Sam was a major surprise and there was a lot of stress till I was...oh, probably five or six months along. Fishie was less of a surprise, but the stress was higher, as we found out right around the beginning of Hell Year (some may call it 2002). I also wasn't quite aware of how much he wanted another baby too. It's all just so great. I definitely picked and was picked by the right person to spend my life with.

~~~

Sam has freckles across her nose and cheeks that are nearly identical to mine. I don't know why I find this so damn cool, but I do.

~~~

We have got to get a humidifier for our bedroom...maybe for Sam's too. Lately, I've been waking up in the middle of the night for two things. Peeing and drinking water to combat the hellacious throat-ache. Yeah, if both my nostrils worked at the same time, it might not be so hellacious, but I really don't think that's going to change anytime soon.

So. Humidifiers. Should I just get the one shaped like a penguin and be done with it, or are there rules to this sort of thing?

Kind of scattered lately.
