4 Miles to Beat Daddy

Tomorrow the entire family will be running in a 4 mile road race. (I wanted to run the half marathon, but that's been put on hold until next year.) It will be Firefly's first race. I will be 26 weeks pregnant. I don't have a chance to finish anywhere close to my energizer bunny Big BIL. But I am determined!

Firefly and I WILL beat Husband.

Husband has been plotting strategies to beat me. He's even gone so far as to actually do some cardio training!

Tomorrow morning its on like donkey kong!

Congratulations! and A Facebook Announcement?

I'm not really sure what to say. No, I mean.... ummmm. Let me start over...

Congratulations to my Little Brother!

He married the nicest girl this last weekend!

I'm really happy for them!

I would share pictures, but i'm not sure there are any. I didn't find out until 9:30 last night.
Thanks to the Husband for seeing it posted (cause I don't check the site, ever) and tipping me off to give him a call. I'm just at a loss of what to say. I mean my LB pulls attention grabbing stunts all the time (like when he showed up at our wedding rehearsal in his brand new sports car), but I always figured he would want a big production of a wedding.

Oh well! Congratulations LB and my new Little SIL!

No Touchy!

I am not a touchy-feely type person. I never have been. I hug few people regularly or willingly, including family. The few people I do hug, I hug a lot, but I don't necessarily want to hug them very time I see them.

Being pregnant has made this a large issue. Everyone wants to hug me! and touch me!

I had my first confrontation at a wedding recently. Apparently at 23 weeks pregnant, its obvious that my body is incubating this wonderful little creature.

A not so close 'friend' of my Big Brother decided that she needed to touch my belly AND proceeded to make her husband touch me too. I just stood there frozen, internally screaming "what the hell are you doing???"

I wanted to yell, in the words of my favorite Disney Emperor's words, "NO TOUCHY." But I thought maybe an outburst like that a wedding/reception wouldn't be very appropriate.

The question is, how do you deal with these people and their need to invade your personal space?
