It’s the Little Things

The most random, little things have been amusing me lately. Such as this:

I brought the pizza for lunch and went downstairs to get some chips. Ended up with the chips, watermelon, AND cookie. In addition to the granola bar, yogurt, and cupcake I already had up in my office. I laughed it off and thought, “Oh well, I’ll never be hungry for all this today anyway.”


All of that was gone well before 3pm and I still had to stop at the vending machine on the way out of work to get some peanut butter crackers that would hold me over until I got home. When I immediately had to make some dinner.

The doctor said Jake would be growing a LOT in the next couple of weeks. After all this, I think I believe him!

Today I went down to “get some chips” and ended up with the same exact assortment of snacks. The cashier woman giggled at me and said I had to listen to my body. I’m sure she thinks I’m a nut.

ALSO. Check out my luck!

I feel like a little kid on Christmas! I put a $5 bill into previously mentioned vending machine and got not 1, not 2…but FOUR gold dollar coins! Amazing. I almost feel like they are too special to spend. It’s kinda like when I used to hoard the $2 bills my grandparents would give us.

(Then I got some sense knocked into me and realized that yes, even though it’s a rare bill, you can still use it to BUY things!)

I’m also a tad stressed about the fall TV show lineup. From what I can tell, The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, and SYTYCD will all be airing at 8pm on Thursday evenings. I don’t know about your DVR, but mine cannot tape 3 things at one time. Plus, Seth will be in school on those nights. I’m not sure Maggie is prepared to manage my TV freakouts. So I guess this means I have to be home every Thursday night no matter WHAT at 8pm to watch one show live. Things like that can put a girl into early labor you know! I’m considering calling NBC, ABC, and Fox to see if they’ll tweak the schedule a bit to help me out. I’ll let you know what I hear.

  1. Haha, definitely listen to your body! This is the only time you can really get away with it guilt-free! I saw the fall line up too. I have cut Greys so I don’t have a problem. What happened to you cutting shows?? :)

  2. Good think I don’t like the dance show because my DVR only does 2 also. Believe me, when Jake arrives you probably won’t care if you miss a show or two! :-)
