Relaxing weekend

I didn’t do anything this weekend except take Oliver to the dog park on Saturday, and get a 1 hour pregnancy massage on Sunday.
Perfect, it’s what I needed. 11 hours sleep two nights in a row. Ahh 🙂

Last night we watched Julie and Julia and I really really enjoyed it. Loved learning about the food, and Julia Child’s life. The movies underhanded dealing with infertility really struck me. The scene were Julia’s sister writes to say she is pregnant and Julia just cries and cries really hit home for me. I know that feeling to well of being super happy for people you love while feeling miserable for yourself. We started to watch Food Inc. but I couldn’t handle it, I am super hyper sensitive when pregnant and seeing the baby chicks go through an assembly line and get their heads stamped was enough for me to say no more. I can’t handle watching animals abused, it breaks my heart and is the main reason I was a vegetarian for 6 years. They are alive, they have emotions, they are not some plastic lifeless item you mass produce in a factory. I told Dave unless you want me to swear off meat again, I need to turn this off. As it is I buy 99% of my meat locally from small farms, but to see animals treated like this is to much to bear right now.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
