Checking In

Hi guys,

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. The days are full lately - between being slammed at work, rushing home to spend time with the Bear before she goes to bed at 7:00, eating dinner and cleaning up, then collapsing on the couch, there isn't time or energy left in me to say anything on the internet.

I had my annual exam this week (good times) and found out that I am lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight. That makes me feel so damn good, you don't even know. Also, at this exam, I was showing the midwife (who is really great and we've become friends since I saw her so much during my pregnancy) pictures of the Bear. She oo-ed and ah-ed appropriately and then made a suggestion that I'm completely excited about. She asked me if I would frame some of my photos and hang them in the examining rooms of the Women's Center with my business card attached to get some business taking pictures of people's babies. I was thrilled to be asked and am quite excited to see what this opportunity might bring! I need to work on making a portfolio website and business cards before I bring her my work, so I've got homework this weekend!

In addition to these plans, Huz and I will be going to the Nashville Shakespeare Festival on Saturday while my friend babysits for us. I'm really looking forward to this - just the two of us getting away for a few hours and relaxing outside while being entertained. We'll have wine and a picnic in tow, of course.

As for Monday, Huz has to assistant teach because his school is lame and doesn't cancel class for Labor Day, but we'll go out for breakfast (one of my favorite activities) before he goes and might stop by the local nursery to scope out their 50% off sale when he gets back.

That's about all the exciting plans I have in store. You?
