|Prom - senior year|
Today I am really pregnant. Nine months pregnant. Kids are pointing, people are staring. Today the baby probably won't come so I'll head to the gym....limp to the car afterwards....then maybe take the boys to lunch. Today I'll go to the doctor. I'll hope I'm in labor but he'll tell me I'm not. Tonight Tod and I will get take-out and eat while we watch 48 Hours Mystery and 20/20. Tonight I'll probably fall asleep around 11 with my pillow fortress between my knees, behind my back, under my belly.

Today in Washington DC my best friend will be getting married. In this beautiful hotel. In a gorgeous dress. With all her closest friends and family members present...except me. Today she will marry her love and I will be here...maybe painting my toenails. I didn't think I'd feel this sad but I am.
