October 2007


Here we are in October. Halloween is just around the corner, baby on the way. I had a rather disturbing dream last night in which I LOST the baby, as in he died at the hospital when I had him. Talk about fucked up. Anxiety I’m sure. I’m ready for him to be here though.

I’ve got a lot going on. Trying to get the whole photography thing off the ground, http://erikaricephotography.blogspot.com and all that fun stuff. I booked my first non-relative, non-known person’s wedding for June. Exciting. Hopefully my schedule will start filling up. I could definitely do senior portraits, but I need to put flyers up. I don’t know if maybe it’s already to late for that. It continues to be unseasonably warm in Ohio. I really don’t mind except when it’s 80 degrees outside and inside my house it’s 78 and I can’t sleep worth a crap.

I finally emailed A about the “situation” that occurred many many months ago. It was nice to get my feelings out and to let her know what was going on with me and my mind. She and L will be getting married in December. I’ll be going out with the grandparents and my husband and daughter. A will finally be my “real” sister!  It’ll also be neat to see Chicago during the winter/holiday months. I’m sure it will be crazy, but I can’t wait to get some real Chicago pizza from Gio Donna’s. Or whatever it’s called.

Well. I need to get off this computer and get S ready to head to school and get myself motivated to go to work.

Sydney’s Soccer

Today S had her last soccer game, with her Daddy coaching! It was a good game, they won! It was cute because S was the goalie for the last quarter and she did an AWESOME job! When she came running off the field T picked her up and it was super cute. (It could be that I’m an emotional mess due to the pregnancy, but I got tears in my eyes…) Tonight we are supposed to have a pizza party at pizza hut in town, those effers in town though, are total jerks, so I’m not looking forward to it, plus 7 or 8 screaming/talking little 7 & 8 year old girls! Should be an interesting evening.

30 Weeks along today. Only 10 more weeks to go!!! The poor little boy in my stomach is running out of room. He seems to think a good fun thing to do to pass the time is elbow the crap outta Mommy and do flips. It’s neat having him in there, I definitely thought the best part of being pregnant with S was that I could feel her in there, but I am ready for him to be here, for me to lose weight, and for me to be able to drink a glass of red wine! (Or two!!!)

I’ve got a bit of a headache, so I’m going to go take a Tylenol!!
