Books and Paints!

I've been walking with Bryan to work in the mornings and then usually make my way over to one of the quaint little cafes in Fairhaven to rest before walking back home. While there, I started reading this hilarious book called Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year by Anne Lamott. I found it helps distract me from the fact I have to push a baby out of my you know what sometime in the coming weeks. Although, I'm not sure if the following excerpt from this particular book helped…"I couldn't push the baby out, and Pammy and Steve stood by my feet in the labor room for an hour, exhorting, encouraging me to push, telling me how beautifully I was doing. I was in despair. I made a tiny poo on the table, which they didn't mention at the time but which they manage to work into about all two-thirds of all our conversations…." On second thought, maybe I should choose a different book.

Also, painting helps distract me from those thoughts as well. Wish me luck in the next coming weeks and hopefully I don't die of a panic attack! I just have to keep telling myself who I'll get to meet when it's all said and done!

Admittedly,  I saw this idea online and made it my own. I just love all the colors and the fact it represents all seasons…winter, spring, sumer, fall! It was pretty fun to paint!
