Mid July is usually a gross time of year around here, but this Summer has been so mild, I don’t mind it at all, even at a gazillion months pregnant. I am looking forward to having this baby and regaining the ability to apply makeup again. See, my belly is now too big to lean over the bathroom counter and see my face up close in a mirror. So no ….
