I've been collecting my writings from years gone by as I find them. Each time I move - now 5 times in the last 3 years - I find more scraps, loose sheets, etc. with my thoughts from various times in my life. I've decided to copy as many of them as I can here to try and keep from losing them again, and to share with the world. Please feel free to comment as thoughts occur to you. Either send them to trekker9er@yahoo.com or use the comment links here. Thanks, and Enjoy!

 So Cute!

When Sherrone woke me this morning because she had to leave, I checked on the baby. She was asleep in the "I surrender!" position. Awww! I was going to take a picture to post, but I was afraid the flash might wake her.

Got a picture of her napping right now. But have to wait to develop the film, mostly to see how many more pictures I end up taking of the baby!

In the meantime, geez, I'm already well on my way to sleep deprived and it's only been one night! Lol. I know I know, the rule is sleep when the baby sleeps, and the baby is sleeping now so I should be too. Oh well, maybe after I get a few more things done.

 A Baby Is Coming!

This weekend! Yay!

My cousin Sherrone is taking her oldest on PALM, a week long bike trip across the lower pennesula of Michigan. Her youngest is about 3 months old, too young for the trip, so I offered to take care of the baby so they could go. At first I just thought it would be good for her and her oldest to have some alone time (the oldest has been getting jealous of the baby) and that it would be a good experience and test for me.

Last weekend a bunch of the baby's things arrived via the grandparents, as Sherrone will be taking the train with the girls to get here and the less baggage the better. Now each time I look at the bouncer and the bassenett I smile, or get excited! A baby is coming!

It's an important thing, in my opinion, because after last year's events I lost my desire to have children. It was a bit disconcerting for me, I've never not had the want for a baby. And I found I didn't have as much tolerance for playing with children as I used to. I wasn't sure if something was wrong, or if I was growing away from who I've been, or what. I wasn't sure if I should be worried! But now I see things are getting back to normal in the child department.

My only real concern is if things go too well. I mean, if I find I can indeed handle a baby and the rest of my life, then what's left to keep me from trying to get a baby now instead of in a couple years? Money? Well, maybe. But as my Mother said, if you want a child then have one, 'cause you'll always find a way to make ends meet.

*shrugs* Well, we'll see. Until this weekend I'll try to just look forward to the visit!
