i am pooped!
approaching night 3 of justin being away.
he'll be back friday and i can not wait.
everything has gone amazingly well with his dad.
we are so thankful.
its really quite a miracle.

i have some random thoughts i thought i'd blog about this evening.

for the most part i don't mind eating generic food items.
but there are two things that i just CAN NOT do generic.
Nilla Wafers and Cheez-its.
the generic brands are just plain nasty.
ill, gross, barf.
when i was pregnant with adelaide i didn't crave chocolate, pickles, peanut butter...nope, Nilla Wafers. and boy did i induldge.

on my drive to borders today i saw a sign with the dali lama on it and it said, "doesn't just wish for peace, works for it." i thought it was interesting and it made me think about working for peace.
how do i in my plain ol'simple life work for the greater peace?
how can i contribute to a more peaceful world?

we've had a vacant apartment next to ours for quite awhile now (any takers?) and i have been dreaming about who might move in. might they be 2 kindred spirits?
oh how fun it would be to have friends as neighbors. share meals together, watch some american idol, free it could be awesome. really awesome.

alright my baby is asleep and i am going to go eat some pizza.
i probably forgot stuff.
