Since I've been updating only sporadically since I got pregnant and then exactly like Duchess Kate got hyperemsis gravidarum I thought I would use today to catch you all up on my life.
Tasting: Twickers. Which is when you have one half of a Twix and one half of a Snickers left uneaten on the coffee table before you go to bed so you put them together in a tupperware in the freezer and then overnight they freeze together into one candy bar and you are like "Hey! A Twickers!"
Seeing: Harry Potter 8 (I'm going through a bit of a HP re-obsession at the moment if you hadn't noticed. Part of reason is that I am currently on 'pelvic rest' so I'm required to spend a lot of time on the couch.)
Smelling: Lamb and Chickpea Chili bubbling away on the stove for dinner. It's still just in the low 60s here so chili is not ridiculous. Plus this chili should be eaten year round no matter what the temperature because it is RIDICULOUS.
Touching: Pants and a shirt! This might not seem like an !exclamation point! sort of statement to you but my morning sickness at its worst was extremely tactile-centered so I could not touch ANYTHING and NOTHING could touch me. Like seriously nothing. Toothbrushes, Q-Tips, Showers, Ryan's breath on the back of my neck at night. So today is a pretty big improvement over the day my husband made me go to a family BBQ and a relative overheard me whisper "I wish I was naked right now" to Ryan.
Hearing: About five minutes ago - "Down" by Jay Sean which meant that my phone was ringing and it was Ryan (he chose that song for us to walk back down the aisle to at our wedding). I don't know what he wanted because I got too caught up in the music to answer again. Also I'm mad at him because this morning I was really tired and forgot what I was doing while I was making myself oatmeal and so I was just standing at the counter staring at the bowl and he was all "Just because your brain waves are of the MICRO variety does not mean that they work to heat up food."
UPDATE: I got a text. He was calling to see how the chili was doing. It's doing fine. I'M FINE TOO THANKS RYAN. I mean, a bit bossy and needy but that's normal.
Sixth Sense: Nothing YET. I do have this weird persistent feeling though, almost a presentiment or augury, a premonition if you will, that I will have a sixth sense in the future.
Tell me what you're tasting/seeing/smelling/touching/hearing today?
Also, I posted this yesterday on Facebook but I wanted to mention here as well that I am OVER THE MOON about being chosen as one of Blogher's 25 Voice of the Year Honorees for Humor blogging (out of thousands of submissions!) The honorees were chosen by a reading committee and not through a voting system so I'm feeling really very proud of this accomplishment. I never would have gotten here without the unflagging support of all you excellent readers so I want to just say thank you thank you thank you.
