It has been a long 10 days without the internet. It is like being cut off from the world. Yesterday was a very exciting day. We got internet again. We both worked. And we got to visit the doctor. The bad news is that my cervix is completely closed. The good news is 1: My doctor is not going to put me on insulin at all because we are so close to the end and 2: due to the gestational diabetes, the 27th is actually my due date. If we haven't had our baby by the 23rd then we are going to have a scheduled induction. At least something good came out of having GD. Below are some of the 9 month pictures we took at the park. I can't believe that we are going to be a family in only 2 1/2 weeks.
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
