These Days

These days I just can't get enough cilantro. Oh wait. Never mind. It makes me want to vomit.

The other night, I hurriedly ordered hot and sour soup and fried doughnuts from the Chinese restaurant five minutes before they closed, and devoured the entire bowl along with those fried crunchy fat things that I normally scorn.

These days, my dreams are vivid, and I am tired.

These days, every time I pee on a stick it tells me I am pregnant.

Huh.

It would almost make you think we're having our third baby.

congratulations from another family with 3...loved the way you wrote the news...and get rested now...practice a lot of deep breathing and daily thank yous because you are in for a ride...its tough to be outnumbered, but as it has been with the other 2 it is still fun to watch them grow and awesome to enjoy them when they all get along.

I love the way you announced it! We're thinking about you! I hope you find more things that sound good, apparently nothing with cilantro. :)

omg congratulations! i do wonder ... how many sticks have you peed on, and what kind? are you, like, wandering around the yard peeing on sticks? i hope so because that would be hilarious. i shall assume that's exactly what you've been doing and that it's making your dog upset.

Naomi - HEY!!! Nice to hear from you!! Thanks a lot!

Heidi - Thanks! I'll keep checking for any news on your blog. :) Heh heh.

Candice - Me too. I can't wait to see us waddling around pregnant when you come home.

Angelina - Thanks very much. I'll wait to hear some surprise news from you. :)

Katie - Thanks! :) You enjoy your cutie little girl - FOR SURE you wouldn't be ready for another one yet.

Michelle - Thanks. Sounds like you are someone I should seek sanity advice from. :) I was very glad to hear about the couple you guys might be able to have help with Prema sometimes. Makes me breathe a sigh of relief for you. Everybody needs a break sometimes. Especially me. :)

Joyce - Hey yourself, pregnant lady! :)

Sylvia - Ooooh...pamper myself. Sounds great. I'm dropping the kids off with you and heading off to a spa! Thanks! :) Hope you're feeling ok yourself!

Melody - Thanks. Yes, no need to worry - I've been finding lots and lots of things that go down REAL good...I'm ravenous girl these days.

Janice - I know what you mean. For a while I was absolutely NOT ready for a third one - and then all of a sudden I was. I got a little jealous of Joyce, I think. :)

Aimee - Thanks! :) I'm following fast in your footsteps, I think...but I just can't quite seem to catch up! :)

Melissa - Gobs. Gobs and gobs of sticks, and yes, they are all OVER the yard. The dog is a mess, a mass of worriedness, and just doesn't know what on earth to do with herself. We're hoping I get myself together here one of these days. :)

Carrie, I'm so excited for you!! I can't wait to get a chance to see you this summer and to feel the baby kick :) We definately have to plan something while we're home in July. I hope you're not too nauseated and that you're able to satisfy all of the cravings, at least the sane ones. Love you, Carmen
