Random Tidbits

I never know what to write about anymore or fear that I am becoming boring. Maybe I was boring to start with? The fear is that all I will talk about is my impending motherhood, which I don't want to be the case. That however, seems like all anyone else wants to talk about. People seem to be obsessed with pregnancy women, and I am unsure why. They watch what I wear, what I eat and drink, what I buy, etc. Frankly, I'm just not that interesting.

So some more random tidbits (lots of things to say, but not much to say about them):

* P is in Atlanta all week for work. That means this weekend he will be doing schoolwork all weekend. he will be back in time for tomorrow's ultrasound, which I really did not want him to miss.

* Lost is on tonight! Lost is on tonight! This may be my favorite show of all time. It is exciting yet mysterious and it is interesting to try and pick out the connections between characters and what exactly is going on. It's comparable to reading a really great novel that you just can't put down, but in this case, it is rationed out to you weekly.

* I read quite a few books on my trip to San Diego. One of them was called "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. It is post-apocolyptic fiction (my favorite) and even appeared on Oprah's Book Club List. It involves a man and his son trying to survive after a unnamed event blackened the earth and consists mostly of dialogue between the man and his son. Don't read it. That is my advice. It is the most depressing book I've ever read in my entire life. After I finished it, I bawled in the airplane lavatory for 10 minutes straight and never wanted to hug someone I love so badly in my life. Also I may add - I was teary the rest of the day. Yes I am a big crier, but I have never cried over a book. Ever.

* Do you like chips and guacamole? I never was a huge fan, but now I can't seem to get enough of them. It seems to be my "craving". Good thing I bought lower calorie chips.

* Easter is so early this year. What is up with that? Easter should be April, and there should not be snow on the ground. The little girls should be able to wear their Easter dresses and bonnets to church and the girls should be able to run about and find eggs outside. It's an unwritten rule. Enough said.

* Tomorrow we find out (hopefully) that everything is on track and if it is a boy or a girl. I'm guessing boy.

Unfortunately myself and old man are in different places today.

San Diego is dark, gray, rather cool and rainy. Boo hoo. I got 30 minutes of sun on Monday and that's it!

I'm flying back tomorrow in the a.m. Also checked in and found and aisle seat. Ta da! Need a good book though. Any suggestions?????

Greetings from San Diego

Hello -

So I went to my conference today. I went to bed last night at around 6:00 p.m. (SD time) and got up around 5:00 a.m. (SD time). IT was nice. I am rested. I took the trolley to the meeting today and took it back. The meeting was pretty dry, but at least they fed us well. When I got back I took a walk and explored the gas lamp district (I should have done this yesterday). I sat out on the pool level in the sun where the convention level was (we don't have a pool) and just basked :) Very nice. Tomorrow I have meetings all day so I won't get a chance to do too much. Thursday I am going to go shopping at Sea Port Village and check some stuff out by the waterfront and hit a few meetings in the afternoon.

I continue to be suprised at the very large amount of homeless people here.

I meant to write many time lately, but suprisingly things are very busy.

I leave for a conference in San Diego on Monday and I have been busy trying to get things together. It's hard to find any clothes because all my pants are getting too small and the few maternity pants I've purchased are still a bit large. I've worried about flying because I don't like it in the best of cirumstances and now I only have a window seat (I pee all the time now) and NO seat assignment on the way out Monday morning.

I've been feeling well, just tired and getting really hungry all the time. P is watching classes during work time several days a week so he gets home really late those days. I go for my big ultrasound to find out what I am having in 3 weeks and to make sure everything looks okay. I've gained five pounds (the five pounds I lost in the 1st trimester).
