Another prayer to the Baby Gods

Oh no, dear Baby Gods! The crying baby has stopped by our gate. No, dear Baby Gods. Please have mercy on us all - especially the poor mother of the crying baby!

A prayer to the baby gods

Please, please dear Baby Gods. PLEASE don't let the screaming baby be on our flight! PLEASE!!


Doggone it. I forgot to buy gum.


I love airports. I don't love bathroom doors that swing inward when you have luggage with you 'cause then it's really hard to get in and out of the stall. Well, more out than in, I guess. But I still love airports. Mostly because I love flying and being in an airport means I'm going somewhere cool. I also want to get my pilot's license. I hear it's very expensive. But wouldn't that be cool?! I think I need to make it happen. At least, I need to find out what it takes. In completely unrelated news, I'm discovering the wonderful, blissful joy of communication. Of resolving things. Of handling your business. The problem is, I'll let something build up and not say anything and it makes me super tired and then I finally break down and say something, and then I feel way better. And totally exhausted! Like I just want to lie down on the nasty floor I'm sitting on and sleep. When the stress starts to dissipate, I realize just how truly tired I am. Then I realize why I had such a hard time with my long run. Not that a long run is easy, anyway. But it doesn't need to be harder. So, now that I've communicated and promised to find an answer to my concern, I wonder what the response will be. Hmmm...well, I have three days to figure it out!

A quiet evening at home

I'm sitting at home waiting for the dishwasher to finish washing the dishes. I hope it actually cleans them this time. This is the second round with the new dishwasher. I think the problem is that the hot water in this house runs out after about fifteen minutes. Which totally messes up my long, relaxing showers. :( I'm also waiting for the dishwasher to finish so I can wash the cake pan so I can make a cake. I'm going to make a cake because I have a ton of leftover frosting. And I need something to put it on so I won't eat it all. ha ha - I've always said it, the cake is just there for the frosting. I also want to climb and Steve is in Arizona and I wish he were here because I didn't realize how much climbing relaxes me. I love it! But I can't climb without my belayer. :( Steve, hurry up and come home! In totally unrelated news, my walls are totally bare and I need to hang up some pictures. But I don't know what pictures I want to hang up. Well, I guess I'll go work out so I can go to bed early. I can't wait for Thursday afternoon to get here! I just have to get through Wednesday and Thursday morning. I can do it!
