It’s getting tough to write to Cootiehog on the weekends – this weekend I didn’t log in to the computer a single time over the weekend. So, my apologies for being incommunicado all weekend.
Saturday was our childbirth class – it lasted pretty much the whole day so it felt like a regular workday – no sleeping in, getting home after dark. ARG! But the class was informative, if only to tell me a bit more about how the hospital works. I knew all the childbirth stuff already from my constant reading and stories from other new moms. Denis was Mr. Jokester in the class (not for the benefit of other people – he merely whispered his jokes to me). At some point I turned to him and said, “Okay, this is so NOT going to be the way it is in the delivery room in April. No jokes AT ALL or you are getting your butt seriously kicked.” He just laughed and cracked another joke.
Sunday was my movie day. I watched “Along Came A Spider”, “Croupier”, and “Black Hawk Down”. For a piece of fiction, Black Hawk Down was pretty riveting. As fact, pretty darn wrong. But I know this country was all about being patriotic when it was released, so I’ll forgive the movie for glossing over America’s role in Somalia and making our men into innocent heroes.
