This baby is messing with my zen

I suppose this is practice right - I'm going to have to find a whole new zen. New challenges, new experiences, new everything. I can't wait. I'm so excited to meet our son. Mason! You kick me in the bladder and I love you for it. This tiny helpless one-and-half pounds has me sleepless and completely irrational. Older mothers do one of two things - smile sweetly, remembering their own, and telling me their stories; smile somewhat vindictively and tell me I'm never going to sleep again so get used to it, mama!

25 weeks today, 15ish weeks to go. We've been waiting three years for you!

books in 2011

Okay, so the photo project kind of fell through when I left my camera in Antigo. But that's ok. There will be plenty more picture to come. Right? Right.

Inspired by Lindsay I decided I'm going to track my books for 2011. I'm off to a good start! So far:

The Depression Cure Stephen S. Ilardi

Small Acts of Resistance: How Courage, Tenacity, and Ingenuity Can Change the World Steve Crawshaw and John Jackson (everytime I read that I think Jack Johnson. It can't be helped.)

Currently: Feeding the Whole Family: Cooking with Whole Foods Cynthia Lair (its a cookbook, so I imagine this will be a while but I'm counting it

The Art of Racing in the Rain Garth Stein
This last one is written from the perspective of the family dog. I love it! I got it yesterday and am already 1/3 of the way through it. It's refreshing to find some great fiction. Every dog lover should read this, I'm already convinced. I keep laughing out loud and then Erich thinks I'm laughing at whatever Star Trek rerun is currently on and I have to keep clarifying that its the book. :-D

That's it for now. I think I'm going to start with a goal of 25 for the year. While I don't think I'm a slow reader by any means, I don't read as crazy fast as some people in the family do. (cough cough)
