Holiday rundown

This will be brief since I am still a-vacationing, but here's my holiday, by the numbers:

49: The number of hours I spent staying alone at my mother-in-law's house because my husband was supposed to fly via Denver and got delayed by two days instead.

183: The number of farts I have emitted in the greater LA area in the past few days. I would particularly like to apologize to those of you who may have been shopping on the Third St.reet Prom.enade on Christmas Eve; if you wandered into a rank miasma, that may have been left behind by me.

7: The number of times I think I may have felt the little feller move inside my belly. I think I'm finally feeling that "goldfish" sensation that people cite.

Okay, this last one doesn't fit neatly into the numbering conceit, but I definitely have a belly now. If you didn't know me, you might think it could be a burrito gut, but if you did know me, you'd definitely think I look pregnant. My belly popped out in the past week or so. My husband immediately noticed it when he arrived two (2) days late after we'd been apart for a week.

I hope you are all doing well!

Oh my, 49 hours alone with your mother-in-law...that sounds like a movie premise.
I'm glad you're feeling movement. I would imagine that is so reassuring.

I think you should have gotten an extra, really good Christmas present for spending 49 hours alone with your MIL. If your husband didn't get it for you,send him now!

Congrats on the 7 flutters, how very exciting!

Hope you enjoyed your time with your MIL more than I would have (gulp!). And congrats on feeling the goldfish! Very cool!!

49 hours is bad enough, but being full of hormones and being alone that long with your mother-in-law deserves some kind of cash pay-out.

That sucks about Mr. EM being delayed. Before I read "was supposed to fly via Denver," I immediately assumed he had done something on his own to miss his flight, like watching Veronica Mars.

Can you believe they also cancelled/postponed a Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames hockey game due to that same storm!?

Being Flames fans of course, we were quite disconcerted with the cancellation, because they have not bothered to announce when (if?) it will ever be re-scheduled. Weird.

Anyway, it appears it was quite a horrible storm!

Hope you are enjoying your holiday nonetheless!

Wishing you the best for 2007,
