The last few months of my life have been....well, the last few months have left much to be desired. To say that life since August has been the most trying of my life would not be overly dramatic.

All I can say is that, somehow, I feel a glimpse of hope. I'm still not sure what the outcome of all this wish-I-was-not-living-this-drama will be, but I felt a glimmer.

And that glimmer makes me very happy.

Friday Fill Ins

1. Snow makes me so very happy. Alas, there is none to be found around here as of yet.
2. I'm looking forward to meeting Hendrix within the month.
3. Egg nog is the best holiday drink ever!
4. One of my favorite old tv shows is Family Affair.
5. I'm done with bright weather.
6. The most enjoyable thing around the holidays is getting the decorating done. Not that we have anything complicated like home theater sconces to put up!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Chris coming home, tomorrow my plans include working and resting and Sunday, I want to work and rest, what else is there in my life right now?!

Lime Kool Aid

I'm not sure if I have posted this before, but I am in love with Lime Kool Aid.

This has been a constant this pregnancy. With lots and lots of ice, which is totally weird, because I normally order my drinks with minimal ice if any at all. I almost drink a gallon a day, and nothing else sounds as good. For some variety and sacrifice, I'll make myself drink a big glass of ice water before I drink any more sugary lime.

My sister makes the most amazing red beers. I have a pink plastic cup that is my "red beer" cup. Since this pregnancy, it has been reassigned as my lime kool aid cup. It helps to not feel so deprived

And as I type this, I'm eating a lime popsicle. Who cares if it is freezing outside?
