while i was gone

I have been out of town since the morning of 31 October at a conference. So much has happened right around the time that I’ve been gone. I’m going to shamelessly steal the format from Hanah’s latest blog and recap:

I’m so happy that:

– today is Guy Fawkes Day!!!!

– the Phelps church has to pay all that money. I hope it drives them out of their business of hatred

– this last conference is over with. it was fun, but now i can look forward towards other things

– those French “do-gooders” are being held responsible for trying to whisk away kids from Chad to an “obviously better life” in the west. This is particularly considering that they were working without cooperation from local NGO’s, governments, etc. How hubristic do you have to be to believe that YOU have the right to make that kind of choice for those children?

– i am due to have this baby in less than 5 weeks. whew. time is really slowing down. i secretly hope he’ll be early…but let’s be honest, probably not! 🙂

– i got to see hanah and sarah last weekend for jess’s party and general girly hangout time. those two are fantastic

– i “discovered” (aka Lesha told me where to find it) a beautiful and delicious cafe called “society” on the corner of fredrick douglass and 114th. i have a new love!

– burlington, vermont really is a beautiful town with very cool stuff going on. as a starter, i would VERY highly recommend a local chocolate company, lake champlain chocolates. their hot chocolate is to die for, and their truffles, YUM. they do have locations around the country, but the burlington shop has a little cafe and they are QUITE skilled at making an amazing cup of hot chocolate! 🙂

– ola put together the baby crib while i was away this past weekend and WOW – it’s amazing!!!

– i just finished possibly the saddest book i’ve ever read (yes, maybe even sadder than the kite runner), my sister’s keeper, by jodi picoult. more about that in a later post though.

on a more down-side…

i’m getting sick (just a cold i think but it sucks)

i’m already tired of the elections and campaigns. people are so horrible.

WTF is going on with us and iran anyway???

pakistan’s a mess 😦

fall is flying by so incredibly fast, i’m afraid i’m missing it!

i’m so very much looking forward to:

– not being pregnant, and playing with my baby

– spending time with friends and family over this winter

– looking forward towards new life endeavors.

there’s much more i’m looking forward to, but these sniffles are catching up to me….a nap is in order.

  1. What’s funny is that I wrote about all the same things Hannah did. We should probably be friends, you’ll have to introduce us. Welcome back and I hope you feel better!
