Vacation: We went to Maryland for Spring Break (theirs)/Easter last week. Man it feels good to be in a house and a car and a full-size grocery store and go to JoAnn's and Cafe Rio and walk on clean sidewalks, etc. Colette and Regan were both relieved to find that they still have their special bond. We saw some sights downtown and did lots of hanging out with the kids. Also, Christina and I read Heaven Is Here and both really liked it. It was well written and made me cry and love my family even more. She talks about having dressing changes on her wounds and a few things that were familiar to me because of my mom (but not nearly to her extent) and those parts really got me. I probably should have just stayed in Maryland a couple more weeks. But it did feel good to come home and if I stayed, I would have missed our neighbor's cherry tree blossoming.

Baby: 23 weeks now, major growth spurt last week, moves a lot (I gasp every time because I can't believe there is a moving, living child inside of me), she can hear now apparently which I'm glad for because I sometimes get tired of talking to myself throughout the day. I need to make her a quilt.

Me: Sometimes I get to feeling worthless and lazy around here and then I realize that if I stand up and do something, it really helps. Imagine that. I got my hair done at the Aveda School, it went okay. I keep acting like I'm gonna start walking around the park every day but I never do, maybe tomorrow.

Visitors: Carrie/Margaret in 9 days! Sisters (all 4!) in 38 days!

I've put that book on my list of things to read this summer break. I hope to be one of your visitings after your sisters leave. I can't believe you're having a baby.

We're never going to see you again are we? I'm so jealous when everyone else gets to come.
