really random and disjointed. such is life.

hi all!
so, life has been plugging away. we've been pretty busy, which is nice, since it makes the time go more quickly. like they say, a watched pot never boils. and a watched baby never boils either. whatever. i'm ready for him to be here.
according to the midwife at my appointment yesterday, it has been the baby's tiny little butt that keeps nearly breaking my right ribs. meaning, good he's head down, bad he's apparently got some junk in the trunk. i hope his wide hips don't get stuck on the way out.

we've been having a horrible time figuring out what we're going to do for insurance for the kid. my insurance has been of NO HELP in trying to figure this out, todd's insurance won't cover the kid, and i'm realizing that being a grown-up isn't everything it's cracked up to be. here i am in my pajamas at 8:30 on a friday night, getting ready to go to bed and worrying about insurance. oh, the thrilling life i do lead!

on a side note, this was given to me by one of my second-graders. is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen in your life?! (but the fact that the pregger belly looks more like a tumor is a little unnerving, not going to lie.)

also, last weekend todd, my sister, her boyfriend, and i all went to iowa city for my dad's wedding. while it turned out to be an eventful day full of drunk buses, prosopagnosia, unitarian lesbians, and all around white trash, this was probably the climactic moment, caught on film:

that's right, the hulk and iron man taking on their enemy, the merciless and beguiling bald eagle.
here are some other, less superhuman moments from the day:

um, yeah....that's all.

Good post. It had a little of everything. Loved the sketch of you. Couldn't help but focus on your neck. Couldn't tell if you were wearing a turtle neck, a neck brace, or maybe suffering from a goiter :-) Very cute!
