couture


And, no, the airline still hasn't found my stuff -- I just downloaded a few of my pictures before I left Paris.


and (whispering) the second beta was fine and the first ultrasound is next week and I'm doing a surprisingly good job of not thinking about all the different ways this could go wrong

Thanks for the whisper too. It's the best news I've hear recently.

Tash said...

STE said...

Quietly hoping for good things.

Alex said...

Whispering back, I am hoping for good things too.

Yelling at the airline, find her damned luggage, NOW! We want more pictures!

Thats super news! I have everything crossed for you.

As for your lost stuff. WTF is the go with that??? Hope it turns up soon.

Maggie said...

I'll whisper really quietly, just in case, but I am thrilled to pieces with your news. And I can't wait to her what other good news you have to share...you more than deserve your happy ending.

And what is up with your stuff getting lost?! That is so not cool. But if that's the trade off for a happy ending, then I secretly hope that they don't find it...

Is it weird that I still think of things in a bargaining type of way? It is, isn't it?

Amanda said...

I'm sorry your things are still unaccounted for...

(congrats on the great news)

Lori said...

(whispering back) I'm so happy, and hopeful, and have all fingers and toes crossed.

Am I doing okay? said...

SCREAMING in my loud, happy, surprised voice. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!

Julia said...

Ah... so that's where my zen ran off to. I am glad it's found a good home, and you can totally keep it. It served me very well for a while, and I am hopeful it will serve you equally well, and maybe will stick around for longer.

About the picture: my sister is getting married this summer, and so at some point we were looking at some bridal magazines. The models in them and the mannequin in your picture have something in common-- they all look mighty pissed off. I wonder what it is...

Aunt Becky said...

(I like good news. Thanks, niobe).

painted maypole said...

oh... i'm thinking of all the ways this could go right.

Kymberli said...

I'm whispering a muted YES, but I'm also spinning around like a crazy, grinning fool in my chair.

Melissia said...

Keeping my eyes averted and my head down, but taking in your news and keeping the hope alive for you.

Antigone said...

It took near six months for me to get my luggage back once. I wish you better luck that I have had...in all things.

Katie said...

Here's hoping, very quietly..

Beck said...

For one second, I thought you posted a picture of me: all haughty and angular and bald and stuff.
(praying for you)

Patti said...

Silently crossing my fingers and saying prayer or six for you. Can't wait ot hear about the ultrasound.

thirtysomething said...

(trying not to to jump up and down screaming with excitement for you)

GOOD for you for not dwelling on the negative possibilities.

ENJOY this Niobe...it is YOUR turn.

Eva said...

Lost luggage sucks.

Yay!!!! on the rest.

Aurelia said...

I'm praying for you, and really really bad at whispering....yayyyyy!

CLC said...

Glad you aren't dwelling on the negatives. I am crossing everything here, hoping you only hear positive things.

And the luggage part sucks. I hope you didn't lose too many of your favorite things...

Anonymous said...

I think that nun in Rome has run off with your luggage. Keep doing a good job on the rest.

Beruriah said...

Argh. I hope your luggage arrives soon.

I whisper back: phew, another necessary step accomplished successfully.

Betty M said...

Hoping for all positive things

Lisa b said...

hoping that all the things that could go right do.

Amelie said...

Fascinating dress. I'm sorry about the luggage but (whispering back) very happy about the other news!

leanne said...

Adding my whispers of hope and continued good news...

K @ ourboxofrain said...

Also adding my whispers for all good things to come to you.

Ahuva Batya said...

I am so whisperingly happy for you, Niobe. Truly, I hope for only good things for you.

Angela said...

I'm glad the second beta was good, and congratulations on not thinking too hard.

wheelsonthebus said...

I am impressed you are able to think about anything else...

Amy said...

I too am quietly hoping and wishing that all continues to go well for you.

P.S. I really hope they find your luggage soon, that totally sucks!

Dr. Grumbles said...

"not thinking about all the different ways this could go wrong" = my latest hobby (attempted)

I hope they find your stuff soon.

the airline never found my bags. they told me that they have a warehouse in dallas for missing bags? I assume it's like the island for unfit toys. (uh. my bags missing? go look there. please?)
But months later I got a cheque in the post to reimburse me for the contents. Which I cashed and bought my Canon. Hmmm.. I'm thinking I might pack a bag to lose on purpose next time...
