I feel entitled to, on the rare occasion, just gripe. 

Gripe because I’m hot.  I hear the news reports of the “critical” heatwave in the northeast and my pregnancy hormones want to scream back at the TV, “SO WHAT?!  I live in Texas, people – it’s ALWAYS hot like that – get a fan and get over it.”  But that’s not very nice.

Gripe because I’m TIRED of my back hurting.  I swear I walk like a sway-backed mare.  The Stowaway is riding in a ball and she’s really low in my uterus so my back is just killing me. 

Gripe because I’m hungry alll the time but when I DO eat, I can’t eat more than a few mouthfuls because the Stowaway is squishing my stomach! 

Gripe because the time is totally dragging.  I feel like I’ve been 32 weeks FOREVER.  I want her and I want her NOW. 

Gripe because I don’t really want to be at work but if I go home, I’ll just be reminded I still have an entire house to pack… 

Gripe. Gripe. Gripe.


I try very hard to NOT be a gripey pregnant person.  In fact, it’s been remarked that I’m one of the more easy-going pregnant people some have met.  This is not my first pregnancy so there aren’t very many unknowns in this (at least of the stuff I can control). 

I don’t know if it’s just a combination of wishing I was home, hot, hormones, or whatever but today is a day when I just want to be anywhere but where I am.

  1. I LOVE your layout and the picture in your header! I love this one! It’s nice, clean, crisp, and tidy. I love it!! I seriously can’t figure out how to create a header image with title, etc. I’m super impressed.

    And you have your tweets, and your flikr photos… you are rockin’ girl!!!


  2. Go to your dashboard. Under appearance, go to “Header.” This is where you can upload a custom header. It should tell you the dimensions required to use a custom header as is; based on your layout. Then, you just use photoshop or something similar to create a nice little header. Don’t freak, btw, if your header on the preview screen looks chopped up because the previewer only shows you a little part of it. It should display correctly (if you’ve got your dimensions right) when you publish.

    Thanks for the affirmation – I wanted a new header and that other text one was my first try into the custom world and it was, well, boring and amateur. I hated it. I really like this one. I’ll keep it around a while.


  3. Well it’s the whole “…use photoshop or something similar….” I have no idea how to even begin with photoshop or even in iPhoto… I’m supposed to be able to create a header… but I have no idea how. I guess I really should learn.
