bump-de-bump

Something happened between Monday and Tuesday night...........I got a bump! The picture is a little exaggerated, I'm twisted a little bit to get the picture, but I no longer look like I have a beer belly. Yay! --Please ignore my droopy pants, my butt isn't deformed that way ;-)

R.I.P. III is here!

It's that time again. Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings has issued his fall Challenge and I again am taking him up on his offer. I just love to torure myself. It's not the scarey stories, which I like to read in the fall, its writing the reviews. But, to grow we must be challenged, so write them I will.
I'm going with:

Which is: Read Four books of any length, from any subgenre of scary stories that you choose.

The Gothic/Horror/Suspense genre isn't something I normally read, although I do like the ghosty fansty/sci-fi. So I've been looking at the other blogger's lists and I've come up with a list of my own. The first two Carl pointed out and they intrigued me. I love the title of the 2nd one.

  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • The Ghost In Love by Jonathan Carroll
  • Underground by Kat Richardson
  • The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson-- not sure if this one fits in the genre, but it looks good
  • Touch the Dark by Karen Chance
  • Glass Houses - Rachel Caine

And what ever else I find. One of the best things about the challenge is all the new books the other blogger's bring to my attention.

Little Bean's Screen Debut

video

Woot! I went for my first trimester screen today and I made this video for Zalebaby since he couldn't make it to the appointment with me. Don't listen to me babble please, I was just chitchatting with the Dr. while he was checking out the little bean. Overall, everything looks good, which makes me very happy. I go back on September 16th for a 2nd trimester screening and I'll find out Bean's gender then.

Let Me Out!!!

I'm dying. It's 2:15 and I'm stuck here until 5. Somebody shoot me and put me out of my misery. I'm the only one in my department today. The only window I can see leads to the hallway not outside and it's cold in here. I've done all my work and am just waiting on the phone to ring, just so I can take a message for the salesmen who are not here. If I had nail polish, I'd be doing my nails just to complete the bad secretary image.

I bet no-one would notice if I sneaked out....

I've got nothing

I've got nothing to say, but when are my ta-ta's going to stop growing?!?

I did have something funny happen to me last week, but I wanted to wait until I had a picture to post with the story, but the picture thing doesn't seem to be happening yet, so I'll just tell the story.

So, I went to Kroger after work and a guy asked me how many months am I. If it wasn't for his very pregnant wife standing beside of him, I would have clocked him. As it was, I gave him a completely shocked look. After all, I was barely 11 weeks! Now I was wearing a bias cut dress that outlined my belly, but when I looked in the mirror that morning I didn't think I looked preggers, just a little chunky. Needless to say, I've retired that dress until after baby. Not that I mind the idea of looking pregnant, but it was soo weird to have him ask me that.

Zalebaby, sweet as he is, insists I look preggers, not fat. He gets a gold star for that. Now, if he'd only do the dishes.
