A few things on my mind...

Written by Shannon Leigh

  • Oh how I am dreading the students coming back to campus next Monday. If only they could stay away for 6 more weeks. Yes, I realize if there were no students there would be no job.
  • Our poor dog Izzy had to get stitches under her eye as a result of a freak snow shovel incident. She now has to wear a cone when we are gone so she doesn't scratch at it. Every morning I am forced to put it on her. I feel like I am torturing her. She runs into things constantly and last night panicked with it on and ripped the outlet off of the wall. I'm not sure how this happened as I wasn't there. (Story & pictures to follow).
  • Matt's very enthusiastic explanation of why Mark McGwire's admittance to steroid use has a profound affect on his past career and his future. I was more interested in who he is married to now. She is a blond pharmaceutical sales rep who is 15 years younger than him. I was shocked.
  • Matt's detailed description of the movie District 9 which he rented while I was gone last night (thank goodness) and his hope that there is a sequel.
  • How to find time to finish Peanut's baby quilt.
  • How much I appreciate my mom making the crib bumper in her free time and putting up with my demands.
  • How to love Jesus more and identify his grace and his will.
  • Thinking about how and when Peanut is going to make her grand appearance.
  • The rocking chair debacle. Long story.
  • Valentine's Day.
  • Everything I learned in my childbirth class on Saturday. Now I know that if Matt sings "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain" while I'm in labor there is a 98% chance that I'll punch him in the face.
  • My wardrobe is getting very slim as I'm getting bigger. I refuse to buy more maternity clothes. Get used to the same 3 shirts for the next 6 weeks.
  • Lost.
  • Frumpy doesn't really describe the way I feel. Mack truck might come closer.
  • My career as a photographer and where it is going.
  • How I am going to take care of another life when I can barely take care of my own.
  • The foot in my rib cage.

We have had many injuries with our clumbsy Weims and have found the Comfy Cone...it is a fabric cone and you can purchase it at PetCo. We got tired of the constant running into things too...poor dogs!
