Today I had the most lovely experience! You see, my small town in WY isn't really a hot spot for crunchyville ;) I'm pretty much fine being an odd duck among friends... but I've known my chiropractor (my age or so) was somewhat crunchy as she was still nursing her two-year-old through at least part of this pregnancy she has now (due in June) and there were a few other clues... Today I took my girls over to her house and we hung out while the girls played and talked and.. HOORAY! She is studying to be a La Leche Leader (the nearest LLL to where I live is three hours away), she doesn't vax, won't circ her son, nurses until her babies wean, co-sleeps, etc, etc! *swoon* I'm fine not having people be exactly like me and such, but sometimes it's so nice to talk about some of these seemingly 'hot topic' items with somebody who's on your side. So, so enjoyable. I've never met anybody in real life like that!! AND, even better, she lives just a few blocks away! And there's a park in between our houses we can meet at in the summer to let kids play!! Oh, and she's seeing the same midwife I am! (and yeah, since homebirth attended by a midwife just became legal in WY last year, it's still not normalized at all.... so to know somebody in my town seeing a midwife is a big deal!).
Otherwise... my sleep has been 'off' the last few nights, but it's all my own dang fault ;) One night I was reading "Sarah's Key" (I started it that night) and couldn't put it down, so I stayed up until 2 a.m. finishing it... then on Thursday night my mom had the older three girls spend the night at her house, so when dh got off work and it was just dd4 at home, he thought we could see the midnight showing of The Hunger Games (while dd4 nursed/slept with me), so we were there till about 2:30 a.m. watching the movie... then last night I went to bed late again... and I had to get up early this morning to get our co-op produce basket and eventually it all caught up to me and I napped this afternoon. HARD!!! So hard that I've been feeling like I'm in a fog since I woke up! Blergh!
Oh.. and I'm 16 weeks today :) So amazing to me!!!!
