ez has a bit of a fever right now so send us wellness vibes, would ya? i am having the hardest time getting connected with any of the birth community here. DH is so ready to leave. We may just be coming back to the states sooner than planned. I want to go back to the birth center in bali but he is not really up for it and i can totally understand why. it wouldn't be great right now, i know to go back for only a month and then have to leave again b/c of visa stuff. since we are thinking about coming back, we've talked about taking our time driving across the usa seeing the natl parks, hiking and hitting up veg restaurants along the way; we'd fly into seattle and drive to NC. perhaps a little MDC cross country visit to all you US mamas, as well?
how fun would that be?!
i can get my fall fix in, too and stop drooling over your posts about the weather and the pumpkins and the apples and the trees changing color.
barcelona- are you going to join the april DDC for us? woo hoo!
seriously, i do hope that you are on the mend. do you have a local LLL to call, maybe? sounds like you are doing everything that anyone else would suggest though. I LOVE october, too!!! We usually have a huge halloween party and chili cook off. last year, our fam dressed up as star wars; the year before i was a preggo britney spears and dh was k.fed. love it and miss it!
mel- happy anniversary!!! we went to the bird park here in singapore and ez loved it! there was one in bali but we didn't make it out to it. ez liked the emus and the eagles and the penguins are her fave. there is a pic on my blog of her hugging a penguin statue; she kissed it all over, too. maybe that's why she has a fever now, all those germs. anyway, where is the Raptor Center? if you want to PM me instead, i would love to know in case we can drive by it on our USA tour when we get back to the states. We're planning to fly into seattle and drive back to nc seeing lots of stuff along the way and eating tons of vegan delights.
amy- "anything else good we can think of"
that sounds awesome. i will be doing the same thing in a few months when we head back to our place. hope that your hard work is manageable with dh back to work now. thank god for MIL who help with our babes, eh?
DID- I am so sorry for your friend leaving w/o a word. some serious stuff must be going on and i bet you will know about it soon. she'll probably call back or e-mail you soon. had you all been drifting apart at all or do you think it's something with her family that's just too hard for her to talk about? whatever the situation, i hope that you will know what is up. when are you getting married; i should probably know this but was trying to think of it. don't let anyone pressure you to include people in your wedding that you don't want. not that i am any good about wedding advice b/c DH and i pretty much eloped. it wasn't a secret but we didn't want a big wedding b/c of all our family drama and b/c we were living across the country from each other, etc...we did have a big reception the week after we got back. we'd do things differently now if we were getting married but it's been over 9 years and we're happy being married. that's what it's all about anyway, right? loving life together...you two already do and will continue to regardless of which ladies are standing up on your day.
spughy- i read about that nature reserve! we may go to it or the zoo today. ez spiked a fever last night though and is pretty lethargic this morning so we're waiting it out. it's so freaking hot and humid here that we'd be okay waiting until the afternoon for outdoor walking. thanks for the tip!
