If I could sum up the past few days, that would be it. I have been stewing about all my inadequacies lately, going back to the time I said such and such to so and so in 1989 and I cannot seem to stop. This black cloud has had been culminating for some time now, and I can't shake off the rain. But I am a fully functioning black cloud, so no worries.

I did go see the Strangers with Candy movie on Friday with LP, and afterwards went to have some Bubble Tea with an old friend and her new flame. That was the highlight of my week. The movie was side-splitting hilarious, and it wasn't just me cuz the whole theater was erupting in laughter. We saw it at the Tivoli which is this really cool movie theater that someone refurbished and it has a great atmosphere. I almost pretended I was a single gal on a date but my protruding belly didn't let my daydream go too far!

We also purchased bunk beds for the girls this weekend, as well as a Pack-n-Play for the wee one. I should have my head examined for even SUGGESTING that Al and Rug share a bedroom. But that's just how it will be. I should go ahead and buy the duct tape now for the line down the middle of the room.

I'm on my second week of my Wilton Cake Decorating Class. How soccer mom is THAT? What's even worse is how completely excited I am about it. I've always wanted to be a pastry chef, and if I have to decorate Scooby Doo cakes to make me one step closer to that, by golly I will.

Al was in the newspaper this past week for swimming so well, I am so proud of her. They are both off at a summer camp this week, having a great time apparently. The weather has been in the 100s but they're in the woods, nice and cool.

Obviously I have nothing to say today, but I thought an update would be nice. For posterity.

Hello? Is this the black rain cloud convention? Great! I'm in the right place!

I've been carrying a non-descript black cloud myself. "I'm not good enough. I'm an idiot. I'm fat. My hair looks horrible." I could go on and on... but I won't.

Maybe we should do ice cream for lunch. It may NOT make the clouds go away, but then again, it couldn't hurt! :)

Hugs to you, darlin. Those are just baby hormones talking. (Well, yours are...)
