LALA LAND...

This morning at the dog park, a group of people were chatting about the take-over of the mortgage companies and the economy. I found myself moving quickly away. AVOIDANCE.

As quickly as I moved away, the same chatters quickly caught up with me. I guess they wanted to include me in their depressing conversation. ANNOYANCE.

Sensing that I was stuck with this group, with lighting speed, I changed the subject to something frivolous, empty-minded. FUN.

So here I sit, clueless to what is truly going on in this world around me. With every breath I take, all my thoughts, actions and concerns are all about Tate. The wait, preparing, the unknown. OBSESSION.

Someday when I am living my life, this time with Tate in my arms, I will be able to clue-in on the world around me. But right now, I cannot seem to wrap my mind around anything else but......... TATE .

She'll be here soon! In the meantime, I'm not sure it's all bad thing that you can't focus on politics or the economy. Lots of people might consider those depressing topics. :)

I have become more disenchanted with politics since motherhood so I don't even pay attention to all the talking heads. When it comes time to vote, I will read up on each candidate and make up my mind, rather than let the media do it for me.

P.S. Some mortgage companies have managed to stay out of trouble thank goodness. Hee hee.

That is totally understandable. Very soon your life is going to change in a huge and amazing way and I think it's only natural to be immersed completely in that.

I'm pretty good at sticking my head in the sand, and I don't even need a good reason to do it. Heh.

Gee...I have NO idea what you're talking about ;0)

Everyone around me wants to medicate me at this point because I've gotten so antsy.

I just can't wait until this election is over...too much drama for me and I'm a bit of a political junkie!

You're right to focus on your impending motherhood and not all the negative news!

I want to be in LaLa land with you. Instead, I am a worrier. I am taking my house off the market today. I'm too chicken to increase my mortgage right now. I'm probably passing up the big bucks I could gain from buying right now!
