I picked a really really good bag of Marshmallow Mateys this time.  The marshmallow-to-matey ratio is perfect.  I don't want it to end.

Tesla has a doctor's appointment today, and I have one tomorrow.  I'll update you if anything interesting happens.  Like if either of us pees on one of the nurses.

Still haven't gotten my first trimester bloodwork done.  Maybe they'll never notice.

For some reason, our electricity bill is SIXTY DOLLARS higher than what it should be this month.  Last month it was $20 above what we expected.  I was suspicious, but I paid it and let it slide.  I used the air conditioner less the next month and was extra careful to keep the lights off unless necessary.

So this month it's up another $40???  Impossible.  Where the heck is it going?  We don't have a tv, and we don't even use our dishwasher.  I am more than a little ticked off at the Provo City Power Company.

Silas is out of town on a camping trip.  I always think that when he's gone I'll pamper myself and watch all these girly chick-flicks that he would hate....but the truth is, I'm not really that into movies.  I get bored 15-20 minutes in. So I''m reading a lot and trying not to go the grocery store every few hours.

I do my makeup every day.  Even if I'm not going into public and won't be seeing Silas.  (Although he would actually prefer it if I didn't wear makeup.  Too bad.)  Not that I think I'm desperately ugly without it. I just like it.

Ironically though, I have no qualms about going to the store in my sweats or wearing the same clothes 4 or 5 days in a row.  Especially if I'm pregnant.  Heck, you should be eternally grateful that I'm even wearing clothes.  Your mind isn't equipped to deal with that kind of trauma.

My camera has been taking really crappy pictures lately.  It is about 6 years old....perhaps it is dying of camera cancer.  I used to be able to get sharp(ish) pictures as long as the light was okay.  Now they're all grainy and dull.

But look how cute.

23 Weeks

I know, I know...my fashion sense is unparalleled. 

Let me introduce you to the pink sweats that I wear almost every day!  (I wear my grey sweats when they are in the wash.  Because I'm clean like that.)

Today at church I was in line for the bathroom talking to a girl (Jenny) that's due in September, and this lady looked at us and said, "Wow, you both look pretty far along!  How much do you have left?"

Jenny replied, "Six weeks!"  The woman smiled and nodded, then looked at me.

"Four months," I admitted.  And then she almost had a heart attack.  I escaped into an empty stall before she could ask if I was having twins.

Seriously, you should have seen her face.  It was priceless.  

Ah, well.  I have a doctor's appointment week after next, and I'm sure he or she will confirm once again that I am not having twins, and then lecture me about reining myself in because I'm gaining weight too quickly.  

I'm so excited!!!!
