bird poops on plum branch
What's the best change you made to the place you live?

We got it ready for selling. This included replacing (though we had no choice about it) the windows, replacing the washer/drier (cause they broke), replacing the garbage disposal and the faucet, replacing the microwave, re-painting the white walls, replacing all 39 kinds of different light bulbs. Replace replace replace. I actually like my place a lot better with all this new stuff, but at the same time I wish someone would be it already.

When did you get your best rush of the year?

I think probably hearing the baby's heartbeat through the doppler at the hospital and being reassured that he/she was okay even though Kellianne was afraid of potentially miscarrying. Yeah definitely that.

Did your headphones come in a sweet case? See a bottle of tea in another country that stood off the shelves?

Stupid question.

I guess I expect these questions to say something about my year, or about me. Reveal something that was otherwise left obscured. And (now that I read back and see that Joe had a similar response to the question) I guess my reaction is basically that I am so uninterested in packaging and how it relates to me as a person or us as a culture.

Now that I think about it more, I do appreciate good packaging when I see it, just not enough to write about it I guess.

I thought that question was stupid, then thought of a great example, and then forgot what it was.

That was a pretty big rush. It's true. Biggest relief, ever. And you almost missed it because of stupid insurance!!! I ran up and down that hall to recover you and you were STILL on the phone with the man.

But won't this rush be replaced with the rush we get from opening a card with the baby's sex written on it? Maybe not, since we don't think the baby is going to see you bye any more.

For the sake of record: I still truly believe I would have miscarried if I didn't have an appointment with Vickie the next day. Acupuncture is magic for the hormones.
