Has it really been two months since my last post? Tim's out of town 'til tomorrow afternoon. He's a another class. This time in Chicago. It's a good one: all on occlusion (how the teeth bite and fit together). Also, there was some about photography in there which I know he loves, so that's exciting. Only, how excited can you get about taking pictures of teeth? I can't wait for him to get home. We all miss our "voice of reason" desperately!

So, do you see the time I am posting this? Yes, it's 2:15AM. Sigh. I woke up with a yucky tummy. I guess one really shouldn't eat two huge pieces of pizza with tons of cheese on it, two glasses of milk, and a huge cookies 'n cream brownie when one is almost 36 weeks pregnant. Which brings me to the next thing I wanted to post: did I ever say on here that we are expecting child #6? I guess we sort of alluded to it in our Christmas card, but you had to have read it through to the very end for the little hint: "Julia loves...babies. Lucky for her, Baby Owens Version 6.0 will be arriving this May." We are so thrilled. It will be another little boy, and so far, everything seems to be on track.

So, do you want the real reason I'm up at 2:15AM? (I really do have a queasy tummy, but...) I have been reading "Anne of Green Gables". What a great book. Lindsay saw that I was reading it and wants to read it next, so I felt a sort of sense of responsibility to get it read as quickly as I could. Hee, hee. She gets too involved in the mystery/fantasy genre, so I'm wanting her to branch out a little more. Also, she is such a strong little lady herself that I love for her to read about other strong, admirable little ladies, too.

Anyway, in reading "Anne", I came across just the most adorable, applicable quote. I thought immediately that I had to post it.

Anne tells Diana (her bosom friend), "There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that's why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne, it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."

I just love that. There are so many timeless, beautiful sentiments in that book. I've really enjoyed reading it. I also just saw that there is a whole series of them. I guess I'll have to read them. Only so that I know what Lindsay will be getting into, of course.

Only 14 more hours until my Tim gets home.
And, I can't seem to put something on here without a picture. Our main home computer sort of died last month, so we're down to using our laptops. I haven't down-loaded any recent pictures on this computer, but I did find the most adorable (if I do say so myself...) picture from our trip to western New York last summer. It's the soon to be big sister with her big brother out by the lake. Doesn't Tim have a natural knack for photography?
