I found out today that a friend lost her baby. She was 13 weeks along. I hope she knows that I was completely sincere when I told her that I would be praying for them continually today. It's all I can do, but it's the best I can do.

I am reading a fiction book right now... the first fiction book in awhile. Lately my library check outs have been along the lines of "liberal fascism" and the fiction books before this were probably cheesy Christian fiction about amish or movie stars. I find that when I read fiction I start narrating my everyday life as if I were writing it in some book in my mind that will never materialize. Is this normal? I've never asked. I am going to bed early tonight just to read. Well that and Ben has homework so I can't use the computer to catch up on my tv watching.

I don't know how Zachariah got so interested in Robots. I'm assuming some PBS cartoon had robots on it some time or another. Everytime I asked him about halloween or his birthday (two days apart) he, without miss, mentioned robots. At first, being the girl that I am, thought "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Not an ishy robot!" But I got over myself and set out to make him a Robot costume.

He loves it. He even chose to wear it watching tv.... the 15 minutes of tv that he's allowed a day ;)...

The problem... he can only wear it for a for a few minutes before he gets tired--with his arms sticking out of the side and the trillion batteries straped to the inerds... so we'll see how long it will last. We're going to boobash tomorow and I'm not quite sure how that is going to work. Maybe he will just wear it for the costume contest.

On a more edible note ... I made fall cookies.
In part because my best lady friend had a delicious little boy. And in part because I am just wasting away and need to consume as many empty calories I can get my hands on.

I just realized that it's 4 o'clock and I didn't eat lunch. How does that happen? I'm off to make some potato soup for supper.
