In Like a Lion

It is super windy today and it reminded me of a proverb we always learned as a child. If the weather in March came in like a lion, it would go out like a lamb. Nathan was hoping to get the garden started today, but the wind really is too dangerous. Huge branches are flying off our 20 year old cottonwood trees, the ripe grapefruit and oranges are being blown off the tree, the lawn chairs are blowing all over, my poor avocado tree is holding on for dear life. The fence in the back of the yard had one board fly off, then two and now is working on the rest of the fence. I'm looking forward to calm weather at the end of March.

Here are some random thoughts from today:

Nutella and fresh strawberries are yummy on waffles.

The outtakes for Rush Hour 3 are more funny than the movie itself. Just my opinion.

The Discovery channel sucks you in and doesn't let you go easily.

I can't think of a title

I had a cute patient the last couple of days. She had been in a lot a few years ago when she was first diagnosed and sadly she's back in and we're trying to figure out some things. She is adorable and so talkative. It took her the first day to learn my name and then the next day she wouldn't stop saying my name. Everytime I walked in she smiled and said "hi Angi" She would come to the door with her IV pole and say down the hallway "hi Angi" So, it should have been no surprise when I was chitchatting with her mom and her mom asked if I had kids. I told her I was pregnant and our conversation changed to all things pregnancy as it usually does these days. My little patient asked what we were going to name the baby if it's a girl. I told her what our ideas are (they change frequently) then she said "How about L....." (I don't want to say her real name) I would love to take care of her everyday, but I hope things go well for her over the weekend and that she won't be in the hospital when I go back on Monday.

The 8s of 2008

I realize I have not posted in forever so, Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year...but that's so 2007, now onto 2008.

I am so glad that 2008 is here! Just think in the next few weeks, we will finally know who will ACTUALLY be running for president. I have to say I am not a political person, but after hearing about it for over a year now, how can I not be consumed with politics?

Here are 8 things I think about the primaries:

1. If I hear a candidate say the word "change" one more time...I'm going to be super annoyed.
2. Just because Huckabee was a former Baptist minister and I am a Christian (and a Baptist) I am not a bad Christian if I don't vote for him.
3. I can't get over this feeling I have that while Obama is a "nice guy" and a great speaker, I'm not convinced that we need a nice guy for our next president. I feel like it is not Obama's time. He's young and could run again at any time and then maybe it would be his time.
4. I'm not a women's lib kind of gal, but I'm not opposed to Hillary (or a woman) being our next president.
5. I think Americans have been putting too much emphasis lately on being patriotic and being selfish as a country, focusing on ourselves, when really, there has never been a more important time to look outward and realize that the rest of the world has just as much influence on us as we do on them.
6. John McCain...I can't think of anything to say about him and that's not good for me since he's been campaigning one way or another for 8 years.
7. John Edwards, I like him for the most part. Every time I look at him I think "lawyer" and I get turned off.
8. Ron Paul...I don't know much about him, but I know that when I drive down the freeway, there is always a sign that says "Ron Paul Revolution"

Now...onto a more personal note, while the election might be the biggest thing of 2008 for some people. Things are about to change for us (I am not a candidate, so I can say that word) The even more exciting thing about 2008 for me and Nathan is that I'm pregnant!! We're obviously super excited. I'm due 8-8-08 (which I really like saying) We're working on a website for the baby. We had an appointment this week. It was so exciting to see the little heart beat and we could see the teeny little arms and legs moving. Super exciting and thank you to those who kept our big secret until now.
