The Damn Things are Everywhere.

Mr. M and I went to dinner with a girlfriend of mine last night. It's amazing how much can change in 3 months. In the time since I've last seen her, she's gotten back together with an ex, he's moved back in, and she's expecting.

2 other friends my age are expecting their second. Another had her third last winter.

It's so important to me to be supportive and excited. But after a while it gets really hard to keep watching.


  1. I do know how you feel.

  2. oh, I know! I definitely know.

  3. I do for sure remember that time and particular sadness in my life.

  4. Been there. Oh, have I been there.

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
