Have you ever seen

a puppy dreaming? You know, how it's laying there and it's paw starts twitching and you can tell it's dreaming? I've seen cats do it too...

And I can feel Kahlan doing it.

Normally it's her hand twitching like that, right up next to one of my hips. Right now? A foot. In my ribs. Fluttering and twitching. It's cute really...

I swear, this kid is an endless source of amusement for me right now. And she proved my dentist wrong today. I get the feeling she likes proving people wrong. My kid for sure...

Anyway, I went to the dentist today. It was supposed to just be an exam and a few x-rays, get to know the new dentist type stuff... Until he saw my x-rays. He decided one of my teeth was so bad it needed to be fixed TODAY. And since he had it numb, he fixed the one in front of it too... Apparently the sealant that had been put on there when I was younger failed. Oops. *sigh*
So, as he was numbing me, she was DANCING. And I was laughing a bit. And as the anesthetic kicked in, she dozed off. No big deal, and I don't really think it was the medicine, she was just tired. She had been really active for over an hour, and she was just ready to take a nap.
And so he told me that as soon as he started drilling the noise would wake her up. Nope. Not the slightest twitch. But within an hour of leaving his office she was kicking harder than she ever has before.

Contrary child...

Once in a while...

... I actually agree with something our government is doing.

Administration officials are focusing on rebates of $800 to $1,600 for individuals and couples and so-called bonus depreciation to allow companies to deduct 50 percent of business investments made this year. Democrats say the package also should include boosts in unemployment benefits, food stamp payments and the Medicaid health care program for the poor and disabled. Talks between Pelosi and Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, have focused on smaller tax rebates of perhaps $500 for individuals.

Like Bush, lawmakers would not discuss what a compromise plan would look like, stressing cooperation rather than potential differences over details.

"This is about one thing in this package: Is it a stimulus?" Pelosi said "So whatever it is that we are considering, it must meet that one criterion: Does it stimulate the economy? Does it put money into the hands of those who will spend it?"

(Link to full article)

Yes. Seriously. Give me a spare $500 and I could and probably would have it spent in less than a week. Maybe a day if I really tried.

I would pay some bills, go out and eat, buy some yarn, have some coffee, buy some clothes and little bits of cuteness for Kahlan... I would pump it all back into the economy in a hurry...

So send me my money Mr. Bush!!!

Emotional Train Wreck

He's been gone less than 24 hours and I already miss him.


I wish we could afford to turn the cell phones back on... we will be able to pay the bill in like 2 weeks, but I really wish there was someone we could borrow the money from until then or something...

I think not being able to even talk to him is making it worse. Of course, pregnancy hormones are no doubt contributing to the title of this post as well...

I'm tired, hungry, thirsty, sleepy, bored, but nothing I do helps. And thats when I realize I'm lonely.

Me, the anti-social one in the family. I actually really miss somebody for probably the first time ever.

I need to hurry and have this baby so I can be me again and not this blubbering emotional wreck.
