Kinda lonely

I've been feeling depressed lately. I know, I haven't written in this thing in months and the first thing I do is complain, huh? Oh well. I can't help it. I feel like I don't really have any friends. I mean, there's Seth's friends and they're pretty cool, but they don't really feel like "my" friends. I like hanging out with them and all but still... Four years ago I had so many friends, what with being in theatre and all and now I have hardly any. I barely keep in touch with my high school friends, even the ones I was really really close to. And now, when I try to reconnect with them on myspace or something, even just to see how they're doing, I get ignored. That's happened with a couple of different people who used to practically be family and now they won't even answer my myspace message or friend me... how stupid is that? I just... miss people so badly, and I'm a thousand miles away from everyone. *sigh*

Introducing Sophia Michelle Britton *fanfare*

Hi guys! Well, it's been an interesting couple of weeks. I had an ultrasound last Tuesday and found out that the baby was already over 9 lbs with about two weeks to go. Not only that, but her abdomen was greater than the 99 percentile for size, aka off the charts. So after hemming and hawing about it, I finally agreed to have a c-section. The doctor had been suggesting it for awhile because she was going to be big, but I kept resisting. However, with her abdomen being so large, there was a chance that her head could crown and then her shoulders would be stuck and at that point there isn't much they can do to get her out.
Anyway! So after making sure the baby's lungs were developed I went in on Thursday to have the c-section. I was somewhat freaked out about it, but it actually wasn't too bad and I think I'm recovering nicely.

Sophia Michelle Britton was born at 12:23 p.m. on November 9, 2006. She weighed 9lbs, 3 ozs and was 20 inches long. We stayed in the hospital until Sunday and have been home since then. She's doing pretty well, though she likes to sleep a lot which may seem like a good thing, but it's a bitch to wake her up for feedings and we have to make sure she doesn't lose weight so yeah... Anyway, I hadn't posted this yet 'cause I was waiting until I put pictures up so you could all see her. Go to my Flickr account to see my little girl. I still have more pics to put up, but that should tide you over for now.
And now I think she may be waking up so I'd better try to feed her. Love to you all!

Hi Peoples

I'm bored and all of a sudden I heard my LJ calling out to me, begging to be updated.
There's not really too much to say, actually. As of October 30th at 10:33 I am still pregnant. I have about 3 weeks until my due date but we're expecting that she may be early as she is pretty big. Oh, it's a girl, btw... Dunno if I mentioned that in my first post about her. Anyway, she's currently 7lbs, 12 oz, and probably pretty cozy in my tummy. I'm anxiously awaiting her arrival.

Here's a little note for the girls who will be having babies in the future: The last few weeks feel like months. Every hour seriously feels like two, at least. It's frustrating, especially when I remember that I'm not technically due for another 3 weeks, no matter what the doctor says. Oi. Baby comes out NOW plzkthx.

Anyway, I guess that's all I really have to say. I'll post pictures and such when she's born. Loves to all. Hope you're well.

Hi, remember me?

So, I'm a horrible person who hasn't kept in touch for the last six months like I said I would. I don't really have an excuse besides the fact that I'm a lazy whore. I'm still lazy and don't feel like doing a real update but there are two major developments I thought I'd inform you all about.

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT ONE:
On July 10th, at 9:30 am, Seth and I were married at the Lane County Courthouse in Eugene, Oregon. We do still plan on having an actual ceremony, probably sometime next year and will be inviting people to that, but we were tired of waiting and it was fairly necessary for us to get married so I could get on his health insurance because of

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT TWO:
I'm pregnant. Yes, that's right, I'm going to have a baby. I'm due sometime mid-November and no, I don't know the sex of the baby yet. I haven't been to the doctor (go ahead, yell at me for waiting so long. Everyone else has) but plan to as soon as I possibly can. Seth and I are both kind of lost right now as we didn't expect this quite so soon, but then that's our own damn fault so we can't really complain.

Anyway, that's about that on my side of the mountain. I have a job working at the optical department of Sears at the mall right across from where I live which is good because I'm still not driving but bad because I HATE MY BOSS. God she's retarded. And I really don't think I'm cut out for selling. Pushing people into buying upgrades on their glasses and stuff gets annoying. I'm thinking about looking around for another job but that requires me not being lazy... we'll see what happens.

Please don't think that because I haven't kept in touch that means I don't care about you all. I think about you constantly and miss you terribly. I've just got a lot on my plate right now. Anyway, until the next time: Hobey-ho!

P.S. My old phone DIED and I have no way to get numbers from it so if you'd like a call give me your number or just call me. Mine's still the same: 951-537-7018. *kisses*

(no subject)

Wow do I miss theatre. Reading a bunch of random people's journals about Banquet and all... reminds me how awesome theatre was and how much I used to look forward to it. Granted, there was a bunch of useless drama that brought it down sometimes, but that's not what matters anymore, if it ever did. I miss acting on the stage. I really can't even describe how much of a home it felt to me. Did that make sense? Whatever. I guess I'm just down living so far away from everyone... Anyway, I hope those who still get to enjoy it realize what a gift being part of Troupe 4015, cherish it and do what they can to keep it alive and new for everyone to love as I and my fellow thespians did. I miss it.
