My favorite part of pregnancy is when P puts his hand on my belly to feel the baby moving around. Two months to go.


last sandwich

Have you heard of Six Word Story Every Day? Check it out! And make your own! I’m working on one with my friend Claire.

This is a bit more than sandwiches, but here we go… An intense fear of mine (and of most expectant parents, I’m sure) has been of having a severely disabled child. Honestly, I thought that it was something that I would simply be incapable of handling – the responsibilities, the sadness, the pity. Maybe I wouldn’t be able to love such a child enough. When my mind visited these thoughts, it was almost unbearable. So I avoided them. Just the other day, though, something inside me asserted itself – yes, I could handle it. Together, P and I would be loving parents for any child. And it would be fine. I would even be wonderful! Relief.

Reverb prompt: Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?

Our softball team has been a great source of community for us for the past couple of years. P and I joined the team in 2009. Our team is made up of people we’d be friends with anyway, but having a weekly date really helps solidify relationships. Especially when the weekly date involves being outside, physical, and a little bit competitive. And beer!

Even though I won’t be able to play next year, I still hope to be part of our beloved softball community. A community that I may want to become part of in 2011 is one of office sharing. (Here’s an example.) I’m in the process of making some career decisions. If I decide to focus more fully on my freelance business, I need to do it in a way that gets me out of the house more often.

watercolor canoe ad

This is one in a series of ads for Bell Canoe Works. Judging by the quality of their ad campaign and website, I bet they make pretty awesome canoes. (Via Creative Faucet.)

I hope the weekend has been treating you well. Up to anything exciting?
