The weekend is almost here, friends! If you live anywhere near me that means you're also looking forward to a respite from rain and a weekend filled with sunshine instead of clouds. Like, seriously, will summer finally show up this weekend?
The good news is that the summer fruits are definitely here, though perhaps not completely ripe just yet. Lately I've been eating a lot of strawberries, and most recently I bought cherries and a mini-watermelon.
Those little brownie looking things on the side are Goodbody Bites, which are just slightly healthified brownie pieces. I'm using them to stave off complete sugar binges, and so far it's been working. The bad part about being pregnant is that an upset or full stomach feels eight times worse than it does when you're not pregnant. And my stomach isn't even in my ribcage yet. I can't wait to find out how that affects my eating/appetite.
Ahem. Also of note lately? I went to get my cap and gown and Ph.D. hood yesterday.
It was pretty surreal. I keep trying to tell myself that this is all a big deal, but really I'm just no longer impressed. I suspect I'll be more impressed if I can keep my baby alive for the first year of its life.
Ruki is also not impressed with my new degree, especially since David and I tried to make her wear my cap this morning. Here is David giving her an initial sniff:
Here is Ruki giving it her initial brush off:
And here is Ruki just before she shook the cap off again and then proceeded to run around the house in an effort to avoid the cap.
We are so proud of her!

P.S. Because tomorrow is graduation day I'm not sure that I'll be able to post. I'll try to pop in if I can, else you'll all just have to imagine how f-ing cool I looked wearing that blue foreskin-like hat in front of all my family and friends.
