The Harry Potter actress received a thunderous standing ovation.
Why has the word become such an unpopular one? I think it is right I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that affect my life. I think it is right that socially, I am afforded the same respect as men.
hi, friends. how are you all? it’s been a while, but things are good. here’s what’s up.
i’ve come to accept that one of the three of us will always be sniffling or sick. everyone said this would happen, and it did.
we love our new cat. he has quickly become a part of the family, but he is a flight risk and i’m afraid he’s going to run away. he’s already dashed out the apartment door a handful of times. i can’t lose another :(
Chris’ parents are in town this weekend. they leave on Monday and my parents arrive for a visit on Friday. yay for grandparent time!
Jude remains the best. his physical therapy is going great and is alllllmost rolling over in both directions (he has rolled front to back). he loves to be worn, to look in the mirror, and talk to us and himself. he is waking up once or twice in the night, but puts himself to sleep and goes down really easily.
work is going well for me. i’m gaining confidence and am doing good work.
Chris gave notice at his job on Friday. what’s next? big things.
though we had snow a week and a half ago and it hit 90 on Friday, it’s definitely starting to feel like fall here.
despite being sick, i had a great weekend and a lot to be thankful for.
i’m thankful for my husband and my baby and the love and laughs they give me every day.
i’m thankful for my extended family and friends and all the cards and warm wishes and packages and messages and love they sent my way.
i’m thankful for my new cat and my dog and my past cats and dogs. pets bring a different kind of happiness to a house and i’m so glad to have a cat back in my life.
yesterday we woke up, ate a giant cinnamon roll, and went to the humane society. i’d already identified a few cats i wanted to meet and we fell in love with the first one we met. he’s sweet with Jude and good with Sandy and has already made himself at home. i’m pleasantly surprised he didn’t spend the first hours (or days) hiding under the bed and with how chill he is. he is a good one :)
in addition to the cat (which was his idea), Chris scheduled a massage for me and has given me the gift of sleep for the past week, getting up with Jude while i’ve been drugged up and restlessly sleeping. i couldn’t ask for a better partner and i’m thankful every day that he’s mine.
i’ve been home all week and trying to rest per doctor’s orders and have been getting a little stir crazy, but Chris took today off and it has been just delightful. of course i love my baby boo to death, but it was amazing to spend some one on one time with my big boo.
we woke up and took Jude to daycare together
then stopped for coffee and bagels at our favorite coffee shop
came home and put in a few hours of work/rest/Kardashians
matinee viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy in an empty theatre with loads of popcorn
more couch and Kardashians
haircut, where i got a free product for checking in on Foursquare
used my birthday reward for a gigantic salted caramel mocha Frappuccino
…tonight we’re going to a friend’s wedding reception. it could be tricky with the baby and the sick and the pumping and all that jazz, but hopefully delicious and fun.
