Tomorrow, as many of you already know, is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
I wanted to do something. Something simple, but something at least. I just don't have the energy to put together anything large scale for this. So I decided I would release a couple balloons for my babies. And then I wanted to include a few close friends' babies.
My idea is to drive to the top of Mt. Erie in the morning, just as the sun rises, to let them go.
I figured if I'm doing this that early in the morning, I should get everything ready for it today. So we went to a party supply store to get balloons and a helium tank. And I started preparing.
And just now, as my eyes and hands are itchy, and I'm fighting so hard to not scratch my eyeballs out, I realized that all night I've been playing with latex balloons.
I'm allergic to latex.
My body is cringing at just the sound of that word.
Maybe I should read the packages a little better next time?
