sad face

I have a sad face today and here is why...

I'm sad about tomorrow being my last day of work because I really will miss all my wonderful work friends and feeling so loved there! I've always hated goodbyes. I cried like a baby when I left for college and I am pretty sure even though I was excited about the new adventure ahead, it was one of the saddest days of my life. I'm sure baby will be wonderful, but right now I am sad to leave my routine for the unknown territory of parenting.

I'm sad for people in my life who I love that are dealing with hard and heavy things both physically and emotionally. I wish I could just mop up everyone's sadness and throw it in to the garbage and then give everyone a hug and an ice cream cone. I know life doesn't work like that, but sometimes I sure wish it did.
I'm sad because my feet keep getting more and more swollen. I now have a fat roll in the front of my ankle. At this point my Dr. just laughs and my swollen puffy little feet and tells me how sorry she is. I know it is vain but I have never felt so frumpy in my life.
I know this is a happy time, and I am sure I will be overjoyed when little guy gets here, but right now I'm a little overwhelmed with all the changes coming up ahead.

I am sad about your puffy feet, too. BUT- you are one of the cutest girls I know, so unless someone has a foot fetish, they aren't paying attention to your slightly swollen feet. :) Hang in there. Maybe we should get pedicures tomorrow. Would that help?

I like the idea of mopping up sadness & eating ice cream. Yes, please. :)

Maybe we should try out the ice cream cone thing, just in case it IS the secret after all?

I miss you. We need to do something fun when I get back. Have you tried the frozen hot chocolate at Jacques Torres? I've been waiting for a good opportunity . . .

Hang in there! I absolutely know how you feel but there is hope in sight. It will all be over soon and you will have your beautiful baby here with you. Believe me; it's all worth it!

Dearest Caitlin,

This too shall pass as my mother often said. The ankles will be normal and you will have a beautiful baby boy to hold.

You have so many wonderful friends in New York. There will be plenty of moms to give you advice when you need help.
