e i g h t

that is a lot of baby

i might be guilty of
motioning towards my new baby
and reminding my onetruelove
T H A T hugeness was in my belly

tonight my onetruelove told
me something about nolan being
born that i don’t remember
but i’m sure is true…

nolan was born
i turned and asked my onetruelove if i was done
he said yes
i said “i am awesome”

39 Weeks

That is how pregnant I’ll be tomorrow.
And let me tell you, 39 weeks sure is pregnant.
I’m so pregnant that I’m looking forward
to labor and delivery
just so I won’t be pregnant anymore.

And I must look it too.
Starting yesterday complete strangers
have found it appropriate to inform me
that I look like I’m ready to have a baby.

I loathe it when strangers talk to me about being pregnant.
So from now on I’m going to say,
“Yep, and I’m having strong contractions right now.
I hope my water doesn’t break.”

Wilderness Limits



A Fox

A Frog

Lots of Ladybugs



just a few of the wildlife we live among.

And apparently lizards...

But yesterday I found a wildlife limit.

A spider.


A HUGE spider indoors.

I'm talking silver dollar size.

From far away it even looked furry.

Come to think of it, maybe it was navel orange size.

And that dear readers is my bug limit.

I closed the two doors to that room.

Texted my husband there was a huge spider

waiting for him when he got home because

I don't do spiders that big.

Oh, that moving back to urban goodness

would be nice.

Because this lady of the house

is D O N E with wildlife.
