life is a highway...highway 104

so much fun. 

christmas has come on gone. lonely this year. but alright. cooked up a bit of tradition and skyped with the family. that was good.

settling in to the new place. being productive.

tending the fire. 

it's a quiet life up here. working. waiting for the babies. meeting new people. 

took my car in for an oil change and they asked me where i'd been. "looks like you've been having fun!"

waiting on babies. babies please please come. but not tomorrow. tomorrow i have a date and i want to enjoy nature for a minute. even tomorrow night would be fine. tonight not so much. i haven't slept. i should be sleeping. but i've been studying like a diligent student midwife. 

still have three multips in dates and i leave in a week. oh how i don't want to miss them! this going away for classes is troublesome. 

six more months. six more months then there won't be anymore distractions. no more pulling me away. 

six more months. 

every birth i attend i'm learning more. growing more. feeling more and more at home. 

six more months and i feel like i can grasp hold of this path.
