i sleep

the best thing since sliced bread? ear plugs!

after complaining about my lack of sleep due to d's snoring, Bonnie mentioned ear plugs. ohhhhh ear plugs! i actually had a whole container. i tried them out the night d got home from working out of town, and i slept like a baby...a happy and content baby. all i could hear was my deep breathing...a little like scuba diving. compared to the sometimes out of the blue scary loud snores, listening to my own breathing was quite a comfort.

when mia needs my attention during the night, he just gives me a sweet nudge and i wake from my deep peaceful sleep, tend to her and once my plugs are back in, i'm asleep within minutes.

the BEST thing about this is that d doesn't have to sleep in the guest room, or when we have company...on the sofa. a good night sleep and i get to snuggle with my honey. i can't ask for more than that!

breakfast for dinner

to break up the pre-holiday crazy, a few O'Mamas got together one evening this week at Kerbey Lane for some chat, breakfast and whipped cream topped coffee...and beer. always a wonderful break hanging with my ladies....almost as wonderful as a butter smothered blueberry pancake stabbed with a fork to let all the syrup in...i AM pregnant, remember. actually, that's how i always eat my pancakes, and only the middles. i never eat the edges.

from a potato

to an orange?

'You are now 19 weeks pregnant -- almost halfway there! Nineteen weeks into your pregnancy,your baby is about 5.2 to 6 inches long and weighs about 7 ounces (about the weight of an average orange).'

these sites aren't reliable. i guess i may need to stick to one that's comparing my unborn child to food...i'm irritable enough without these inconsistencies.

i wonder why all the analogies of the size of my unborn child are of food. first a grain of rice, then a Lima bean, we jumped to a medium shrimp (now nicknamed Trimp by Mia), and now we have a medium baked potato.

they wonder why we eat so much...i'd LOVE a baked potato right now! LOADED!

no. not my heart. my most favorite lens ever! we were out at sea world and mia wanted to see the roller coasters close up and personal. daryl found a perfect place. i went to sit down and my camera strap slid around and my camera hit the curb...yes, i'd chosen a curb to sit on...i was tired....well, the lens hit the curb and it kind of broke in half in a way that actually gives me hope that it can be repaired. it's not a super expensive lens, but it's dear to my heart. i made a quick call to my photography guru, Bonnie (who i actually bought the lens from), but no answer. oh, well. i'll take it in tomorrow and hope for the best. i'm glad it happened towards the end of the day, but still. it hurts.
