"They're gonna make a big star out of me".... or put us in a large tent for days and days and pick over us like a mob of girls at an institute dance...

Todd was in a Will/Jaden Smith movie as an extra.... but who cares? The real exciting news is that now he delivers pizza once a week and we get pizza for HALF OFF!!!!
Today is officially our due date. Two weeks ago while paying the bills I saw a chiwawa running around the post office parking lot. I almost ran him over. He was darting under cars. I jumped out of my car and chased him around behind the post office while he ran under one post office vehicle to another. I coaxed him with a yogurt lid. I looked ridiculous. 9.5 months pregnant crouching on the ground trying to catch him. In all the excitement, I left my car door open. After a while, I saw him run to my car, so I ran over and looked under it. Nothing. Then I looked in the car. There he was sitting in the back seat. I knew he secretly wanted my help. I hurried and shut the door. He rode on top of the baby all the way to the humane society.
That was on Monday. On Thursday, the Ides of March, I went to work. My back hurt. I went home for a break. I decided to take Tuk for a walk to see if it would be better. We hiked up behind our house. Then my water broke. I called Todd, he was out in the field. He made it to the hospital an hour later. I sent him out again to get berries and gum for our 24-labor time. He almost missed the whole thing. Two hours later, we had this little guy... the whole thig is kind of a blur... I remember yelling things like.. "I need a break!" "It's go time!" and "et tu, baby"... just kidding about the last one.
This is five years later. I wonder how much we have evolved.
We went to some hotsprings for our 5 year anniversary. There was a group of barely post-tween girls there. They were on a cheer squad and cheered a lot. I was happy to get in the showers away from them. Suddenly I was surrounded by two of them in the shower stalls on both sides of me. They were doing fake Brittish accents to fool us.Fairly Dim One: "I am so happy we are on this trip to America!"
A Little Bit Smarter One: "Yeah!"
Fairly Dim One: "Yes, because we are not from America, we are from Brittish!"
A Little Bit Smarter One: "We are not from Brittish! We SPEAK Brittish!"
Fairly Dim One: "Yes, and I am so happy we are from Brittish. Americans are so stupid!"
Ah, yes. A comforting conclusion.
I wonder what they will evolve to....
