ACEO print sale ends soon! and Wednesdaily.

Last chance at a lot of these ACEO print options! http://ellenmillion.livejournal.com/1262962.html

Please do send or PM me an email with your choices - at least one report is saying that the shopping cart comments aren't reliably sending to me, and I don't want you to go to a lot of effort to compile a list (or even just a link or two) to see it disappear.

Having a bit of a frustrating day. Not a bad day, exactly, just frustrating. Spending a lot of time on a very specific coding puzzle that I haven't been able to solve yet (oh, DUH), finding out I stepped on toes I didn't realize I'd stepped on, wondering why I haven't gotten replies to things and trying not to assume the worst, realizing I owe some ooooollllld email replies myself (of course, email is DOWN right now, with fabulous timing), and it's cooooold again, which means being stuck at home. I'm starting to go a little stir-crazy.

In better news, Guppy is terribly entertaining, even at this internal stage. Whenever I sit down with cold water, which I try to do a lot, she's got a limb to stick in something, or a knee to wave hello with. I am stupidly enamored with trying to predict what my belly is going to do next. I have not been able to completely positively identify any bits for sure, though sometimes I can guess... but I had this trouble with the ultrasound, too. Except for the really distinctive things, like face profile, I did a lot of 'huh, is that a leg? Oh, an organ, okay then. Is that a belly? The brain, you say.' I'm a little scared this will happen with actual baby, when I get that that point. 'What is it?! What do I DO with it? Why is it making that noise??'

Labor? Honestly not scaring me. I am sure it will hurt, but pain that has a specific end-date? Pft. I can deal with that. I threw up with a broken back and dealt with ceaseless pain for months on end. I can take a few days of agony that has built-in respites. I will undoubtedly howl like a banshee when actually faced with said pain, but knowing that it has an end - and an actual positive result - I'm stupidly confident that I can handle that part.

Coping with baby? Oof! I have to admit I'm having fear of that. I 'babysat', but usually for older kids. I'm not sure I've ever actually changed a diaper. WHAT IF I BREAK IT? (And related, what if it breaks ME?)

Alright, more wood on the fire now, and some grilled cheese and soup for lunch. Maybe I'll do a load of laundry and see if my email works again, then.
