Feelings...nothing more than feelings

I can't get that song out of my head today. My physical feelings are completely taking over my life right now.

Yesterday, I began feeling like the baby is dropping, began feeling more Braxton-Hicks contractions and some cramping. I am officially "at-term" now, so the baby could come at any time. I have no idea when, of course, as these feelings could go on for weeks, literally.

Besides that, I've been having extreme fatigue. I'm not sure how much of that is just recovery from being ill, or perhaps my body preparing for birth, telling me to slow down and reserve energy. Whatever the case, I've been listening! I'm sitting and lying down as much as possible.

I'm beginning to get over the lastest cold, though the drainage I'm producing, mainly post-nasal drip, is really annoying and I feel like I'm going to drown at times. Megan has picked it up now, I think, and is starting to cough a bit. I don't think poor Zachary will have a chance of not getting a cold early on. We're all just petri dishes around here.

Now for a lighter subject, for I'm sure you're all tired of hearing about my ailments:

The Oscars. I didn't watch this year, but I've been seeing all the after-math this morning. What's with the actress who chose a curtain-like dress and no makeup? Tilda Swinton won the best supporting actress award, but looked like she had 5 minutes to get ready.
Normally, I'd be like, "Well, way to go for her, being all natural-like." But these folks have hair and makeup people literally at their beck and call 24/7. I think they owe us some makeup on Oscar night. What do you all think?

I think this lady is the lady who played "The White Witch" on Chronicles of Narnia. I do think I see a hint of peachy blush under that cheekbone and a hint of makeup glow.

Red headed skinny people always seem to look so pale, I'm not sure the dress did her much justice!

If I had "people" I'd take advantage of it! I'd never leave the house looking like I was sleep deprived or sun deprived. Vain? Maybe, but, hey, if you've got people, why not use 'em!

I need people!!!!!!!!!! LOL, probably in more ways than one!

If I had people, I'd totally be made up and doodied up all day. And, this sounds really lazy--if I was really tired at night--I'd make somebody else wash the makeup off :) I'm always dreading that part of my night--those nights I do have makeup on anyway :D
