2) No, the reason for my absence is this:
Just last Friday we were at a friend's house for dinner and I was going on about how great the girls have been, playing so well together and how they have really turned a corner, blahblahblah. BAM.
They stopped. Stopped liking each other. Stopped liking not to scream. Stopped liking to wear pants. Stopped liking to listen to me or Mike, ever. Stopped all things good. They just stopped. It is possible that the friends placed a inadvertent curse upon us as we were sitting there bragging- I probably would have done that, too.
And I am not going to say that things have gotten or will ever get better. You will never hear me say that out loud.
3) I honestly blame the hormones- I think the girls can smell the crazy. Things are feeling a little bit too much like this:
I am now a full 38 weeks pregnant and have approached a place of despair and sad acceptance that I will really and truly be pregnant forever. While I was complaining to Mike yesterday about how awful it is, he said "Well, I wouldn't discount the possibility that God has has it out for you" (he always knows how to put my overly dramatic whining into perspective).
4) Luckily I had some diversion this week in the form of Grace visiting the Bend for a few days and paying us a lovely visit. I contemplated putting Sebastian in my pocket (or a large duffel bag) and bribing Julia with copious fruit snacks to please stay with me, then stuffing Naomi and Bernadette into Grace's van. But my girls didn't have pants on and were running too fast around the house for me to catch them, so I decided I let her keep her kids. We didn't get any pics of the fun times, probably better for the overly-pregnant/crazy members of this household.
5) In other good news, I finally found some pumpkin spice creamer at the store yesterday. The taste of my coffee in the morning has universally been making me sick- no matter how "good" the coffee or creamer is. However, this morning, once I stirred in the pumpkin-y goodness, the clouds parted and I actually enjoyed something, I mean, my coffee.
