Heartburn

Sorrowful: The impending labor. The baby that needs help. The feeding and the pumping and feeding and the pumping. How long will I make it? The surgery and then the other surgery. The RSV season, the germs, the people, the well-wishers. The hormones running rampant. The recovery. The weight loss and nutritional dilemma. The politics that have taken over my mind for so long. The fallout. The people justifying. The statements too late. Being a square peg..you know the rest.

Also, I really do have heartburn. Bad. Stupid orange juice. Thank goodness for chocolate milk in the middle of the night.

You're on the homestretch! At least the elections are over, its more fun to focus on a new baby, I think. You are awesome!

It is a well-known fact that chocolate cures all ills. After an endurance event - triathalon, marathon, century cycle race - the best recovery drink is chocolate milk. You have the cure! (love dad)

Oh, sad K. If it will make you feel better--and I'm pretty sure it will!--I found a roll of film (!) the other day, which, when developed today, revealed a graduation picture of you, R, Jeremy, Paul, and me. Ta-da!

Well. In the event that wasn't cheering, I'm glad you have some chocolate milk.

Wow, the fact that you have an actual roll of film cheers me up all by itself. :) I can always drown my sorrows in chocolate milk if the picture fades from memory. I want to see that picture!

And, I still have heartburn today. Cripes.

Know whats better than chocolate milk? Crack cocaine!! Just kidding, that would hurt the baby. I think I need to start a political blog. I just don't know where to start and how to organize this mess in my head. Maybe I should go drink some milk....chocolate.

I did steal all the chocolate milk! And if you start a political blog Bri, I would comment on it :)
