I know it's been a while. I don't even have a good excuse, since I sit in front of the laptop about 12 hours a day now watching internet TV. But nothing's been going on, so I couldn't think of anything to write about. At the moment I'm on bed rest because I've been having contractions for 3+ weeks and it's too early for the baby to come yet. And, as Stephan has defined for me, bed rest doesn't include things like cleaning the kitchen, moving bookshelves to dust behind them, or baking mass quantities of breads and muffins to "get ready" for when the baby comes. Bed Rest involves mainly just sitting in bed, exploring all the things that Hulu, Netflix, and MTV.com have to offer. I've also crocheted 8 hats and 2 scarves, started learning French, and read two very good books.
So, I'm here, in bed. And I will be in bed until October 8th when both Stephan and the doctor feel it's safe to have the baby (that would be 4 weeks early since the due date isn't until November 4th), at which time I'll be taking long walks on the beach, hikes through the mountains, and swims in the ocean... or as close as I can get to doing those things in Plevna, Montana.
