Washing Clothes

We bought a new house in November. Our washer has two settings:
Extra Large.

Yesterday I was sitting in this lame meeting about Emergency Prepardness at Work. Probably, I should have been paying more attention, but basically, I just couldn't. So, I started thinking about how clothes really do hide a lot, and the question came to mind:

What if EVERYONE HAD to wear Spandex. Like that was the only material available. And you had to.

I heart Obama.

I like Obama. I must admit. I saw him speak in Boise.

I am a fan.
I also like this shirt.

My Desk Drawer

So, sometimes I go to the store to buy Healthy Stuff to Eat. Because that is what WTEWYE says.

(Note: In case you don't know, WTEWYE stands forWhat To Expect WHen You're Expecting. AKA: The Bible of All Pregnant Women, even if it does go a little over the top, , and basically will scare you straight out of your mind about what to eat, what to wear, how to sleep, how to move, how to breathe, etc.)...

Okay, so back to the store. I usually go to the WalMart (Evil Empire) across the street from my new office buildling. When I go, sometimes I think, Gosh, I need a treat after I eat this healthy lunch, because I am pregnant and it is okay to have a treat every now and then. ThenI buy it and stick it in my desk drawer for such occaisions. But I never eat it. I just collect it. I just am never in the mood for treats. I know, CRAZY.....People ask if I have cravings, and I don't, really, but I don't like treats as much as I used too.....weird...

Well, here is the list, laid out for all to see:

  • Half Eaten Bag of Pretzel Sticks (got sick of eating them and being thirsty all the time)
  • Two Logs of Saltine Crackers (just incase I GET sick)
  • Box of Nurtigrain Cereal Bars, Mixed Berry (You know, just because)
  • A ZipLock Bag of Cinnamon Hearts that I still have yet to eat more than 2 of
  • An unopened box of Junior Mints
  • An unopened bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs...the yummy chocolate ones with that crazy addictive know the ones
  • A real Cadbury Egg (unopened....)
  • An unopened bag of Tootsie Rolls
  • A Box of PopSecret Homestyle Popcorn, Snack bag size (I DO eat this. And it is the BEST Flavor)
  • A few granola bars, Nature Valley Sweet and Salty Nut
  • A bottle of Tums

There it is, the confession of my Secret Stash. Now, if I can just find any of those darn Girl Scouts at the WalMart, then I could add a few more line items.......

12 Weeks

Wow. Wednesday I will be at 13 weeks in the ole pregnancy. And sometimes I think to myself, am I really pregnant? Other than feeling tired and extremely hungry all the time (is that really a change, though? I can't really say) I haven't felt super prego.

Anyhoo, luckily one of my coworkers gave me a gift today and I can't wait to share it with all of you. It is a book titled "Pregnant & Beautiful", published in 1985 and must have Rivaled What to Expect When You're Expecting in its day....The opening Paragraph reads as such:

It's satisfying to see a radiant woman who looks as lovely when she's pregnant as when she is not pregnant. Does she look better because she feels better, or does so look great because she keeps herself looking nice and feels good about herself? Experience has shown that any woman who keeps up her appearance feels better......This book is designed to help you choose fitness over flab and beauty over blahness during your pregnancy.

Luckily, the book will teach me such things as What Colors to Wear, What Textures to Wear, Beauty During Pregnancy, How to Apply My Makeup and Do My Hair, which are all things that have been BURNING questions in my soul. How can I be more attractive? Thank goodness I have this bbok to assist me....and you....

Too bad I don't have a scanner at work. Just you wait....
