Today has been an outstanding day. The good stuff started yesterday evening really. We met up with Will’s sister and dad who offered to take us out to dinner at the neatest little Route 66 gas station you ever did see. The kiddo’s got some t-shirts to commemorate the experience and I bought a cookbook of favorite Oklahoma dishes. That night found us in Tulsa chatting it up with the folks which brings us to today where the outstandingness continued with trips to the Planetarium and the hobby store. Back at home we ate cake and watched Return of the Jedi. All of this to celebrate the birth of my sweetheart. Yes, it’s been a fun time. I
was am grateful for the distraction because yesterday – yesterday afternoon at least was pretty crummy.
We drove to Edmond to visit the ultrasound lady recommended by my midwife. She was tactful and extremely kind but there is truly no good way to deliver hard news. My body still believes itself to be pregnant but our child stopped growing about a month ago. I am not a weepy sort of griever preferring instead to focus on present joys and blessings. Help me out, will you? Tell me something that makes you smile or tell me about a blessing in your life? And then go hug your children and tell them it’s from me.
