I wish I could blog. And I wish I had time to reply to emails from friends. And I wish I had time to download and order prints of Miss E's latest pictures.

I know the time to do all of this will be here sooner or later. But it is not here now. Maybe tomorrow!

This week we lost our beloved friend and colleague C. I have mentioned her here before, how she was such an incredible inspiration to all of us here at work in her perserverance and tenacity and her generosity of spirit in the face of her long fight against fucking breast cancer. She not only was my role model professionally, she was a personal inspiration and a friend. I know that right now she's really wanting to tell us that "It is what it is" and that we should put on our big girl panties and deal with it. But right now we are doing what we never did in front of her because she just would not allow it: and that is cry and ask why and curse the universe for robbing us of the incredible joy of being with her. Too damn bad, sisterfriend, we're doing it anyway!

My cups runneth over. In so, so many ways. The most obvious is that I bought two new bras yesterday and while they fit, thay are slightly more, um, exposing that the nursing bras I've been wearing for over a year (if said nursing bras are closed, of course.) So I feel like I am just POPPING out. Who knew the old girls had such life in them post-deflation!

My work cup is also overfilled...I just took on supervision of a program (and a person! EEEEEEEEE!) and now I am also filling in doing fundraising stuff. Temporarily. I swear.

One thing that wasn't running over was my bathroom sink this morning. Frozen cold water from the sink toward the back of the house which meant a nice shower, but no flushing. I figured out where the heat tape was, plugged it in, and was lugging a HUGE pot of flushing water down the hall when I heard the clanking and gurgling that meant thawing. I left a note for Bill to check the pipe when he gets home...just in case. The odd thing was that it was not nearly as cold last night as the night before and yet we froze. I don't get it.

Finally, Eva's cuteness also is abundant...this morning she went to kiss me right after I walked across the room to get her coat. She got a shock and pulled away. She almost cried, but then she stopped, looked at my nose (from whence the shock came) and slowly brought her face to mine, when we touched there was no jolt and she had this look of confusion and relief that you would not believe!

Miss Eva went to day care on Tuesday with seven teeth and came home with 10. No wonder she was a drooling cranky mess when I picked her up.

I am back.

Eva is one.

Work is overwhelming.

I gave Vicky pink eye.

That pretty much sums it up!

My grandma died this weekend, so we are in Connecticut with my mom...
