happiness is

two kinds of ice cream. most definitely.

but do you know what else it is?

opening the bottom drawer of your dresser and finding that you have at least one (and possibly 2!) more pair of loungy maternity pants than you thought. and you express gratitude in your heart for your generous sister who loaned you all her maternity clothes. and you kick yourself for not looking underneath your go-to loungy maternity pants before now.

i’ve been thinking that i should pack my hospital bag. just to have it ready. just because it’s something to have done and checked off the list while i’m in control (mostly) of my faculties and not when i’ve already started labor.

but i have been thinking that i can’t really pack my hospital bag because i don’t have extra loungy maternity pants to put in the hospital bag without leaving myself pants-less for the next month-ish.

everything has changed now, though. i have a new outlook on my hospital bag packing prospects, and perhaps on life in general. i CAN pack the hospital bag. and i will still have pants to wear each day.

i am a happy girl.

and i will be happier when i can eat two kinds of ice cream at once. for now, carmen and david’s has only one sugar-free ice cream flavor each day.

    Wow. I can’t think what pants these could be, but I’m so glad! Maybe you should try them on before you start doing happy dances.

    Not much to say. Just happy.
