kama, cool! cool! cool! how exciting!! congrats! Sending warm incubatory vibes to the wee one in there -
I picked up a brand new juicy gorgeous mag for my treasure map pile today. Dying to peek!!! But I won't.
Low esteem items: crappy recycling bin always tumbling over with bottles, let's see... MY ENTIRE WARDROBE (can't afford to tackle that just now)
my FAT ARSE (working on that right now) My dishes and pots and pans are ok... towels, window coverings ok.... my printer and the dog beds are a disaster - why does my dog insist on tearing her beds to shreads??? - just don't have the money for that stuff at this moment... will I be cool if I just get a new recycling bin? I'm not set for an esteem overhaul right now on material goods. I'd need about $500 to get it done.
Can't wait to pick up the rest of the mags though. This should be fun.
um... and yes I am partly procrastinating the huge de-cluttering I need to do (ie throw out my entire wardrobe) but also it's tough becaue dd's asleep in there... (great excuse!!)
PS - I had a cool treasure map moment tonight. I made my first map (not knowing I was doing that) when I was preg with dd. One of the images on it was of John Paul Mitchell's wife - that perfect blonde chick in all the magazines, holding their 4 year old daughter, also a blondie, and the woman is laughing and the daughter is holding her hair away from her face very lovingly. Well, I picked dd up out of the bath tonight and wrapped her in a fluffy white towel, and I held her up to the mirror saying how beautiful she is. She cracks this big smile an looked right at me in the mirror and pulled my hair back gently - it was the re enactment of that image...(not that we look perfect, but we are both blondies) I got the chills!
