My Current Obsession

Hello friends!

So, this last week I learned that I have a new obsession.  However, it is not a pleasant one.  Have you ever had something that you just can't stop yourself from doing, even though you know it's not a good idea?  I currently have this problem.  My newest obsession:  Road kill.

Hod and I went on a quick trip with his sister to go see his mom for her birthday.  (There was us, and her dog's cousin's, owner's, best-friend's, sister's, hairdresser)  I found that the entire drive there and back I couldn't stop myself from looking at the road kill.  Who does that?  I mean, really, because of Jr's prolonged stay I am pretty much always nauseous.  I'm pretty sure if you're struggling to keep your cookies down (not that I eat a lot of those, Jr doesn't like sugar) then the worst thing you can do is check out the decapitated animal on the side of the road.  And yet, that is exactly what I have been doing.  EVERY TIME.  And each time, I think to myself, "Self, this is a bad idea.  Look away!  Look away!"  However, the truth of what happens is my head turns, my eyes widen, and I take it all in.  Every last un-enjoyable detail.  I just can't help myself.

There is probably a pill I could take to stop it, but it's not safe for pregnant women, like EVERY OTHER MEDICINE ON THE PLANET so I just have to suffer through this malady as well.

All I can say is, if I wasn't getting a super cute kid out of this, it wouldn't be worth it.  (And YES my baby will be cute.  Do you really want to mess with me, and the hormones?  Yeah, I didn't think so.  Just keep walkin' buddy!)

I'm glad you have an assurance that your baby will be cute! I keep thinking to myself "what if he (being my baby) comes out wonky looking and only Kenyon and I think he's cute?!" But I guess that would be all that matters is that we think he's cute! Let's hang out soon please now that we're in the same area! Hang in there with the nausea!

you are random. And cute. And funny. And you need to email me about your life because apparently things are different than what I'm aware of!
