Here I am! Here I am!!

And no, there's no baby yet. *sigh* Sorry I forgot to update yesterday, it honestly just completely slipped my mind. Anyways, so yes, still here, no, no baby yet. Although, last night, I thought for SURE would be the night. Why? Oh, I don't know, stupid contractions again? Plus? The baby's head is incredibly low. Lower than it has been before. And I woke up with the worst hip pain yet... but alas, this morning I woke up, and......

No baby.

Anyways... despite the no baby, I've been managing to entertain myself and try to do stuff other than sit around all day and whine about how I have no baby yet. I read a book yesterday. Yes, a whole book in one day. It's one of those things that I'm proud of, yet at the same time, one of those things I hate about myself. I can read incredibly fast... which was nice in high school and college when you had to cram for tests or read literature. But for leisure reading, books don't last ANY time with me. I read the Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Talk about an incredible book... it just sucked me in and I couldn't put it down (probably has something to do w/ the fact that I didn't post yesterday). Today's book (which will probably take me 2 days instead of just 1) is Memoirs of a Geisha. I haven't seen the movie or read the book, so no one ruin it for me.

But first? I'm going to go watch a Baby Story on TLC... because I'm that bored, and because I like to smugly think that I'm going to somehow handle things better than those women on TV.... *ha!*

I LOVE Memoirs of a Geisha. It will totally pale Secret Lives of Bees :)

Nothing wrong with reading a book in one day. Could be worse...you could have done crack, or something.

I read Memoirs of a Geisha way back, so I don't remember it specifically. But I do remember really liking it and being so intrigued (spelling?) with the culture. Can't wait to hear what you think about it.

I hope you feel good today.
