Wheee--four months along.
Latley I have grown out of all my pants and have been wearing more skirts. Maria just lent me a bunch of maternity pants though so now I am set. Another person I will firmly shake the hand of in heaven is the inventor of under the belly maternity pants. So much more comfortable.
Today we spent the entire day cleaning out our basement. We burnt large amounts of old college notes, papers, junk, etc, that has been sitting around our house. It was majorly theraputic to attempt to continue to declutter my life. For some reason burning things with memories attatched to them is much more satisfying then giving them to salvation army, who I know curses whenever they see my car driving off with its latest deposit there for them to rifle through. (Though of course burning almost anything is loads of fun. . . )
Of course I don't know if you all remember the days of livejournal when I linked to that girl who had totally embraced compacting andf manageed to fit all her family's essentials in a non cluttered way into that tiny 400 square foot apartment. I'm far away from that but I honestly am not the kind of person who loves living in huge spaces. It just stresses me out. I love visiting them, but I would be so happy in a small cottage. Of course it would be fabulous if all my freinds owned mansions, as they are so much fun to explore.
I suppose also it would be fun to live in a masnion with tons of other people so you only had to clean your little section of it. . . . .
sorry now I am rambling.. . .
In other news we sold our old car to a mexican man. He was awesomely hillarious. I think my favorite thing was when he said "come on, de money ees talking!!!!" Anyway it is nice to have just one car in our driveway again. . .
