Pregnant Ramblings

Today's rambling is a list of things I may never want again (or at least won't want for a very long time) post-pregnancy:
~Crackers (of any brand, flavor, variety, etc.)
~Pretzels (not even the cute goldfishy pretzels)
~Sprite (or Sprite-like beverages)
~Red Gatorade
~Flintstones vitamins

Things I hope to someday want again:
~Food (in general)
~Beverages not listed above
~Chocolate (yes, it gets it's own special listing)
~To get off the couch and actually do something besides lay around

I'm sure the lists (particularly the former) will grow as rapidly as my belly.

I am attempting to keep my sense of humor throughout this experiment, I mean, experience. Though, I must admit, it is proving a little harder to do than I anticipated. Sure, I heard the horror stories, but it wasn't going to be like that for me. And I am thankful that all I've had to deal with is my appetite fleeing to some undisclosed location; morning sickness stopping by for a few days at a time, leaving, and returning again uninvited and unannounced; and a little dehydration problem. I know it could be much worse. MUCH worse. But that knowledge doesn't make mornings any easier. I am trying to be part of the optimistic (or deluded) camp that believes it will "get better any day now," but it goes against my nature to be so positive. I am, after all, the "happiest pessimist" you'll ever meet, right Katy? I wonder if I should take Mini Morris' early tendency to induce havoc as an omen....

Multi-Book Review #2

Apparently I am better at reading than blogging. Here's another two book recommendations for you:

1) Blood Test by Jonathan Kellerman. This is one of the Alex Delaware series. I've enjoyed a good mystery for as long as I can remember. Throw in a psychologist as the main character and you pretty much have a genre that can't miss with me. I believe this is book two in the series- I have decided it's time to read them in order...up next- When the Bough Breaks, book number 1.

2) Fast Women by Jennifer Crusie. This was a mystery/romance that took place right here in Columbus. The mystery part was pretty good. The romance- well it's not really my thing- and was a little predictable. Nevertheless, it gets a 6 out of 8 on the completely random rating scale.
