Wow. Fr. Vath blessed my belly today at communion. I was (and am) humiliated. Any shred of confidence I'd once had in the way I look has gone straight out the window. First he blessed my baby, then he kind of smiled and blessed my stomach and at first I thought, "what is he doing?" and then I realized, and almost started crying. That is NOT what a girl whose baby is almost 5 months old wants to happen to her. So then I started thinking maybe I was pregnant and he could sense the life within me.... so I went straight out and bought a pregnancy test, took it, and was delighted to find it negative. Well, delighted for a minute before I remembered what had happened to make me take the dumb thing in the first place and then I got all depressed again.
Guess I won't be wearing this shirt anymore. What a shame... it's such a pretty shade of green.
By the way, we officially have a dog. Pictures and details to come soon.
