In a week's time we will be
boarding a big ol' jet and heading to Canada to spend a couple
of weeks with Big-P's parents. I am looking forward to the
holiday and to seeing Big-P's large family... and to new release
movies and North American candy (peanut butter and chocolate?
That's CRAZY but delicious!) but I am not looking forward
to the long trip which I think takes over 20 hours. I am not
looking forward to worrying about my usual plane phobias (hijacking,
crashing etc) and I am not looking forward to feeling uncomfortable
and cramped with no place to stretch out. At the moment I
get tired from sitting in a lounge chair in front of tv for
more than an hour (whinge, whine). I was also a little concerned
about the placenta thing that I mentioned on Thursday so I
called the doctor to make sure that travel would be fine and
he said "Yes, for sure!", but then he decided to
tell me what the worst case scenario might be just to prepare
me incase of anything and (please don't read on if you get
grossed out by such things) he said "well, there would
be a LOT of blood. But it's your blood, not the baby's blood
so you don't have to worry about that and it usually stops.
You would have to calm down the people on the plane around
you. Then I guess you would have to spend the rest of the
pregnancy in Canada." ... eeep!
So to distract myself from
any such ideas floating in my head for 20 hours I am going
to buy some good books that can just totally involve me. Anybody
have ideas for books
I can lose myself in for a few hours? The trashier the better.
When I get back I am going
to redesign my site! Yey! New colours, new fonts, new fun.
I might even use something like Moveable
Type for speedy and controlled updates... can you imagine?
I still just use crazy html and even crazier Dreamweaver for
my daily updates and it does get a little laborious.
