I am amazing

Do you ever have one of those days where you're walking up the stairs and you think "Wow! It's really amazing how my body just knows how to do this without me even having to think about it!" and then that causes you to think about how in the heck your body actually does walk up the stairs and then you get tripped up and fall? I've done that like six times in the last two days.

To top that off I've slowly realized that Jesse and I are on the outs with some people that we used to be fairly close with. Things started to get weird when I got pregnant with A and now we're not even speaking. If I had to guess I would say that it's probably because of the whole thing with me renting out my womb to make babies for gay people. That's just a guess though. I can't really confirm that though since they're not speaking to us since they are close minded and judgmental. At first I was hurt but then I realized they probably just saved me the trouble of giving them the brush off. Still, it stings a little bit to know that our relationship was less important to them than their homophobia.

To top all that, off this morning Elle said to me "Mama, you look pretty today. Just a little tiny bit pretty."

Stairs, creeps and children. All do wonders for the old self-esteem.

PS. When I just did spell check on this there was not a single misspelling found. Woot! That never happens to me!

PPS. I just misspelled "misspellings".

Well I love you AND your "room for rent", so screw those other guys. I'll be enough of a friend for all of 'em. *raises fist*

I'm so that way, about the spelling issues. You made me laugh out loud! And this whole Prop 8 stuff here in CA has really made me rethink some of my friendships. How sad to truly and fundamentally believe that we have the right to deny people the ability to marry and be happy. How sad.

Good luck with this pregnancy. :-)

When I met my new neighbor and found out she was about to rent out her womb I was so excited! I think she is doing it for a hetero couple but I can forgive that part I think. :)

You ARE amazing.

And the irony of the misspelling. Hilarious.

Isn't it amazing what our bodies can do? And our brains!?! That's waht always gets me, the things we can think of and then you just... can't.
Funny.

Never think about the wonders of everyday action. It's just too jinxy.

You're better off without those people if that's how they're going to be.
