bright spots

These last few weeks have been some of the more intense in my life, and that is saying a lot. I’ve moved more times than I can count, planned a wedding (well, three iterations of what was finally our wedding), completed intensive doula trainings (the week before said wedding no less), sold and bought and moved and renovated a home…but finishing graduate school, while teaching three child.birth ed.ucation series and overnighting as a ppd and interviewing with prospective clients and keeping my relationship functioning and trying to care for myself (body, mind, etc), this my friends is something that even I will admit is a bit too much, well almost. My body agrees as evidenced by the first signs of dark circles I’ve had in months and the end of a cycle that included delayed ovulation and a freakishly short luteal phase.

The bight spots have included the local wnba season opener, good evals in my first of three series that ended last Saturday, some amazing fruit, a clean home, a (short) visit from my best friend (who I will be visiting in Hawaii the week after graduation), and then last night an impromptu date with C that included thai, queer slam poetry and Molly Moon ice cream.

Bleary eyed after another night of not enough sleep, prepping for tomorrow’s Labor and Birth class, I just took a short break to read a couple blog posts. I was delighted to read that a couple of my favorite bloggers, over at figboilerwelcomed their son William into the world. I love reading about the births of babies who’s conception I followed. Congratulations figboiler family!

Also, a delayed congrats to the Offering of Love folks on their recent baby #2 BFP!

I’m reading sporadically, commenting even more so, but I am thinking of you all, especially those of you who are waiting for your ultimate bright spot.


Your sleep-deprived almost MA grad

    I’m glad all of your hard work is paying off and hope you get a little bit of time to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Enjoy Hawaii!
