Taking the cheap way out again

  • Watching the local news this morning; it looks like it was taken over by pre-teens. The regular anchors are on vacation, and the temps look like they're about 12.
  • Do you know what is not fair? Not fair is that some men get better looking with age (I'm looking at you, Brad Pitt), while most women hit the turning point much earlier. I regularly feel like I've passed that point, but I'm hoping I'm back on an incline, looks-wise, because I could use some positive self-image stuff. Gaining 10 pounds since the beginning of the year is not helping.
  • Aaron and I have talked a lot about what I should and shouldn't do during pregnancy ever since we decided to quit using birth control. And the things that I should and shouldn't do while we're trying, even. Among these things, he thinks that I should be able to drink a glass of wine as needed while we're trying, but if I even go near a can of diet soda he freaks. At least he has priorities, I guess. (I also guess that I won't tell him about the diet coke I chugged yesterday to help me keep working for that extra hour.)
  • I am going to be working a lot of extra hours this week and next (I've already worked an extra hour for each of the past two days). It's going to suck, but when it's over? I'm going to be asking Aaron to approve me spending money on a massage. Because I need one. September is not going to be fun either, but after September my co-workers and I are going out for a nice meal and a bottle of wine. Or two.
  • I had to delete a post the other day because I messed up the order of posts by doing a draft post and then posting something else afterwards, and blogger doesn't let you change the order of things. Grrr....anyway, here's the text of that post, mostly because I wanted to share the fun links (it was a short one):

This whole weekend my brain has a singular obsession: cake. I've been thinking about cake for approximately 60 hours. All kinds of cake, all sizes of cake, all forms of cake. Just all of it.

This obsession is being caused by two things: 1) I have to make a cake for a baby shower, and 2) this cake pan that I has been on my mind for approximately 30 of those 60 hours ever since seeing it on Not Martha. Seriously. I've even had dreams about it. I've never felt this way about a cake pan, and I don't know why I'm obsessed.

Other cake ideas I'm obsessed with include a variation on petit fours, and a mad hatters cake.

I guess the only way to cure this obsession is to get in to the kitchen and start baking.

Monday Meal Planning will be back tomorrow. Are you excited? I bet you're excited. You look excited.

The only problem with your september dinner plans is that you may not be able to help with those bottles of wine. Although, somehow I don't think you'd consider that situation a "problem," given what it would mean.

On the whole, I agree with Aaron. People have been drinking red wine for hundreds of years. Diet Coke is made from chemicals.

Damn delicious chemicals, though, that Diet Coke!
