tomorrow will be 4 days since i've spoken to jaime.
WHERE ARE YOU
i'm going through withdrawal i think.
today was so lame. it was beautiful and i didnt want to be inside too much so i walked 3 miles, went to target to buy a scale (on a diet startinggg NOW) and got the baby some shoes (shoes?! yes, i know, but he'll be walking soon!) and basically immersed myself in youtube/google videos about space, life and science then downloaded "Cosmic Voyage" and watched it like 4 times. honestly, i don't even care, it's so fucking amazing, i love that shit.
Last night I went out to see Jamie, Nick and Babuh Colette Reese. She is absolutely fucking beautiful. She reminds me of Parker, last year and it was amazing. I never thought I'd go from awkward college student to mama and baby-lover but here I am, coddling babies like it's my job..OH WAIT, it will be. ANYWAY I brought them a lovely gift bag filled with xbox, baby, and alcoholic goodies. Then I had to catch the train home and then the subway to Astoria so I ended up traveling about 4 and a half hours to go like 45 miles out and back LOL. Seriously, it was completely utterly worth it.
I got to spend some alone time (Jen doesn't think visiting friends in the hospital and the subsequent travel time counts but still...) and just enjoyed reading and music and got bored pretty fast. By the end though I felt really good, I felt a bit independent again, without my constant curly headed appendage.
Tomorrow matt's off for Fourth of July, marking his one year anniversary of living in newyork. I was 8.5 mos pregnant waddling into the airport to see my hubbin :) they lost his luggage (filled with all his worldly possessions AND after 14 hours of travel including a layover in dublin) and I barely fit behind the wheel of the mini but it was a great day! Happy US anniversary baby!
I wanted to go to Long Beach but there's thunderstorms tomorrow :( After a week filled with beautiful, lonely days, I have my boy and it rains *sigh I wonder if there'll still be fire works? Oh well. not like i'm some big I<3USA freak anyway.
