Oops.

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?

oh no!!! i hope you're okay :( if you see any plantain while you're up at mount erie, and it's growing in a clean spot, you can eat the leaves. they are an antihistamine.

thinking of you, friend. you're lovely.
