What IS that?

I have an actual grey eyelash on my lower left eye.


I never even thought about EYELASHES turning grey! (and don't tell me that it is blonde... that might have worked 5 years ago... but not now.) I am a month and a half away from 37... how is this possible... what is next???

I just thought you should know.

I am going to be a geriatric mother.

Thank you for the safety concerns. We were well out of the way of Ike, especially since once it hit land it veered to the east. We got only mild rain and wind. But many people's lives are devastated... Galveston is a mess and Houston also sustained major damage. I would encourage you to donate cash to a the Red Cross because I just heard on the news that the cost of feeding and sheltering evacuees is over $50,000 a day in the Dallas area... and this could go on for weeks.

We are all lucky to be safe and sound and we should help those who weren't so lucky.

cd 2 again....

I am still using this blog to keep track of my periods... not sure why... old habit I guess.

Here are a few things that have been on my mind...

#1 - I go between planning and praying for my baby and feeling secure and content.... to feeling scared that it will never happen... that somehow this is a big adoption scam... that I will never have a real baby girl in my arms. My adoption attorney calls it "pregnancy hormones". Anyone feel like this during your wait? There is little to do now but realize that everything is out of my control and all I can do is wait... and pray... oh yeah.. and pay.

#2 - We are back to school. Mr D. and I had a wonderful and packed summer and yet somehow it feels like it flew by! Last week as I started school I felt literally like I had just been gone for a long weekend. This is my 12th year teaching high school theatre... so maybe I am somewhat on autopilot... but dang... it seems like we just got out!

#3 - I love shopping at our local kids resale shop. Yesterday Mr. D. and I got 7 little outfits for $18. The are all in great shape! Finn is going to have so many clothes... and we have decided we are going to have to start playing the lottery... there are just so many cute things for little girls out there!

#4 - I have to start back to the gym. 'Nuff said.

#5 - I don't trust anyone in politics... but I don't trust this Sarah Palin chick the most.

#6 - I can't wait for fall TV to start.

#7 - I am not sure what to do about the fact that my youngest kitty Snoopy think that Finley's crib is a giant cat bed just for him. I have tried foil in the crib (he just snuggles up on top of the foil) and net over the bed (he still just jump on in and lays on the netting). Any suggestions?

#8 - Has anyone invested in a really good camera? What kind is it and did it make that much of a difference? I want my pictures to be better... but is paying $500 and learning how to use a massive camera really the key?

That is it for now... I hope to hear from you on some of these issues....
