I am not at church this morning because:
A) Josh pulled an all-nighter trying to get an online class done for it's deadline tomorrow and he is my chauffeur.
B) I've run out of shirts that are suitable morning church material that adequately cover my stomach--and it's cold out there!
C) The thought of trying to squeeze my feet into a pair of shoes--that aren't athletic shoes--made me want to cry.
D) Facing one more person whose eyes gravitate toward my stomach and then widen in shock and then say "WOA!" also made me want to cry (yes, this did happen . . .)
E) All of the above.
(But unless I have other plans we should be there tonight for the kids' concert, sneaking into the back row somewhere obscure). ;o)
