She was born on September 15th at 6:41am. 26 hours of labor...what a trip. I've never experienced anything like that before and doubt I ever will again. We named her Delilah Rose Griggs. She wound up being a little early so she was only 6 lbs and 2 ounces. That was a blessing for me. I'm not sure I could've taken it if she was any bigger.

We've found out!!! [Jun. 16th, 2007|10:44 am]

We're having a girl!!! Her name is going to be Delilah Rose Griggs. Thusfar everything is perfect. She's the right size, kicking like a kung fu master and I've managed to lose about 14 lbs which the doctor said is perfectly okay since I'm losing my weight and not depriving her. 5 and a half months and my body is balancing out. As long as she's healthy, I don't care. A few more weeks and we should have the bathroom and livingroom finished and I'll be moving in with him.

I know it's been a while again......as you can clearly see......I am pregnant. At this point I am a little over 2 months. The baby is due in October. Eddie and I have plans to get married as soon as the baby arrives. I've never seen him so excited. This weekend we're starting on the baby's room. We've decided on an Alice theme. Oh! And thusfar we can only manage to agree on a boy name: Alexander Jackson Griggs. The girl's name is still up in the air. I'll try and write more later. Right now I need another nap.

Update.

Well.....it's been a while, hasn't it? Where in the hell do I begin? I live with my friend Matt in a nice little two bedroom house in Lincoln Park.
I'm in a relationship.
That's right.
I have a bonafide boyfriend. We've only been together a few months but it's been wonderful. Everything has changed considerably.
Who is this wonderful ball of love-mush?
Eddie.
That's right. We're actually trying to make things work, for real. No more bullshit. No more back and forth. We're in this together until the wheels fall off.
We reciently had an art show together at a place called Andrew's in Yipsi. Both of us sold. It's strange to dream about something for so damn long and then for it to finally happen. It's surreal. I keep pinching myself, trying to wake up. We spend the holidays with our families, we're planning trips, we paint together, I spend weekends at his place, he bought me diamonds for Christmas. Wow. We're an actual couple. Two painters, this is bound to be interesting. Lee and Jackson, Johnny and June. We'll get our happy ending yet.
Other than that, I've been working out 7 days a week, trying to shed some weight and get back into shape. School starts back up in a couple of weeks....I still hate my job....other than that, nothing much to report. I hope everyone is doing well.
Drop a line.

Oh yeah, Jason and I are the shit.

I'm having a mini panic attack. I know, stupid isn't it? There isn't much left in the house. There are a few things I have to move like a desk and dresser. He left this big fucking entertainment center and a heavy bookshelf. The least he could've done was haul them out to the curb for trash day. Instead, I have to sit here and figure out some way to get them out of here. And then there's last month's rent. And rent on the new place. And bills still coming in. And things still have to be painted. And I'm hoping I get my security deposit back, or at least some of it.
My stomach hurts.
I'm totally broke.
The house is dead quiet.
There is no food.
I keep telling myself that these transitional periods are notoriously messy. It's never a piece of cake. I'm just so worried that everything's gonna fall apart. That I won't be able to get anything together in time. That I'm going to fail at this whole living thing.

House!!! [Oct. 15th, 2006|04:36 pm]
L'Black Tornado
Matt and I finished up looking at houses yesterday and decided to take a two bedroom in Lincoln Park. It has a nice garage, full basement and big backyard. Now all I have to do is finish cleaning this place out, settle with the landlord and move over to the new place. Phew. It's quite a lot of work. Hopefully, I can get this place taken care of by the end of the week. The only downfall to the house is that it's 5 blocks from my ex. I'm not sure how to tell him about that. It's sounds fishy. Especially since I'd gone off on him when he was looking for a place and talked about moving into my neighborhood. Anyway, I'm hopeful. This is going to be something new for me. Something good. No noisy crazy neighbors above me. I'll have my own backyard. I'll have enough room to paint and Matt with be blacksmithing in the summer. maybe this is what I need to crawl out of my funk.

Looks like I'll be moving shortly. Taylor decided to spring it on me yesterday that he can no longer afford to live here. And I'm out of options. I don't know of anyone that needs a place to live and i can't possibly afford this on my own. In a way it's sort of a relief. For the most part, I'm very very sad. I worked hard to be able to stay here. Very hard. I've been here for....2 years? And this is the first thing I did on my own. I signed the lease and turned on the gas and electricity and painted and mowed the lawn and dealt with the neighbors. I wish Lexie hadn't have moved. She was the best roomate I've had. Any problems that we had were minimal. This is just fucking ridiculous. He's know about this for a while now. He could've given me more warning than a month. I don't even know how to go about last month's rent. If I tell him now, is it another month? I don't fucking know. Goodbye independence, hello mommie's house. This is bullshit.

Adam's right, I don't need the bullshit. I don't need to drown with these people. But see, I've always been the kind of person who believes in standing by your friends, come hell or high water. If the ship goes down, you're right there with them. That's a friend. Or so I thought. I'm just repeatedly sabotaging myself by caring too much. By involving myself for too long. For not cutting the umbilical cord earlier. I remember once upon a time that I used to be fun. Remember? I was. I was fun. I miss that person. Adam's right right right. Mark it in yer calender. And as for the other topic we discussed.......I never really thought about that before. That I literally don't NEED someone. It's just that I see couples together and get jealous and sad wondering why I can't have that. Wanting that because other people have that and I'm jealous by nature. If I were a deadly sin I'd be Envy. And I want that sort of mundane relationship. Because it's normal. Because it's status quo. I've changed a lot in the past few years. I keep having these internal struggles with what I want and what I need. Those are definitely two different things. I want someone. I don't need them. it'd just be nice. I miss the stupid shit that couples do. Like getting peed on in the shower and playing 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea...or maybe that's just me. Ha. I don't know. I say that a lot don't I? Yes, that's how I always seem to feel. Adam has ordered me to be at his house tomorrow night. We're going to do something, maybe a movie. I think it's sweet of him. I think Adam's just what I need right now. Someone needs to light a fire under my ass.
