I had to share a picture because I am GINORMOUS. It's the time of year when I list kids' summer clothes on eBay and I was attempting to take pictures on the ottoman in the living room and it was so hard because my belly is in the way. Sometimes it's hard to believe I'm only 29 weeks and still have 10 weeks to go (although at other times that doesn't seem long enough). Now, James has been through this five times, so you'd think he'd be a veritable expert about what not to say to a pregnant wife, but noooo, what comes out of his mouth last night? "Man, your butt is getting bigger - it must be trying to balance out your belly". Seriously, man, come on! But anyways, on to the promised "random stuff", today is String Festival. I have a full afternoon and evening of judging ahead of me, but how serendipitous is this - I've been sick as a dog for the last week and my ears are so plugged up that I can't hear very well. Sounds perfect huh? Besides the regular stress of getting my students ready, for the first time Hero is performing. I've been pushing her pretty hard, I hope she can work it all out in therapy someday LOL. What is up with the weather, I ask? On Monday it was almost 70 degrees and absolutely gorgeous, and yesterday and today there is snow on the ground! Gross, gross, and more gross. I am SO over winter. Finally, happy birthday to Dad - wish we could be there and we hope you have a good one.
