Lay Off Me I’m Starving!

Yesterday we HAD to pick out and purchase carpet for our new house that we are moving to in two weeks and no, I have not packed a thing. Not even a toothpick.

Derrick and I decided to make the long drive to the big city a day of fun and merriment, starting with carpet selection and budgeting. We know how to party. The boys stayed at the farm and went puddle jumping because it was raining and freezing and I couldn’t find their coats, and I think my parents like runny noses. Or they have stock in Kleenex.
Leaving my house (or should I say my couch), is a huge ordeal in my ALL DAY morning sickness state but I have found that eating constantly keeps me from feeling uber sick.
So, I ate breakfast before we left.
I ate grapes at my mom’s house.
I made Derrick stop halfway to the city to purchase Wendy’s chili and a baked potato. What the? Fast food chili?
I don’t know people. I really don’t know.
After the carpet store, I had to eat! Again! But, Derrick was on the phone with a work call and forgot to take me to In and Out. I tried to signal him but he thought I was giving him business tips and ignored me. In an act of desperation I ate nachos at the movie theater because we had to rush over to see Harry Potter 7 Part 1. Derrick had sneakily tried to reserve a puddle of nacho cheese for himself, but I found it halfway through the nachos and heartlessly ate it. Nice try.
After the movie, I felt hungry. We went to sushi, which is my favorite thing ever. I have blogged about it often, and lovingly. You can read about my love of sushi here, or here, or even here. I ordered an cooked fish roll, because mercury and babies don’t mix. I do miss my Spicy Tuna Roll…but anyway, I had three bites and I couldn’t eat anymore. The baby had turned on me, rejecting my favorite thing to eat: sushi. I felt betrayed.
Speaking of the baby, my sources tell me that it is at the stage of development where it is the size of a kumquat. I would just like to know what’s with the obscure fruit references? I don’t know what a kumquat IS!
After my foiled sushi attempt, I ordered a milkshake (not at the sushi place, somewhere else). Derrick ordered A LARGE milkshake for me and really, who drinks a large milkshake? It was delicious.
We did some Christmas shopping for the boys, and I, in my pregnant brained glory, picked up a slinky box that didn’t have a slinky in it. It was slinky-less. Thankfully the cashier named Patrick had hawk like eyes and noticed.
I bring you this video clip in honor of my newly found love/need of food.
Won’t it be fun to hear what I eat for Thanksgiving?

  1. omg, when i was pg with sawyer i ate NON STOP. I put a bagel by my bedside before i went to sleep so i could shove it in my piehole before I even got out of bed. I was nausous 24-7 and the only thing that made me feel better was food, preferably carbs. My high point was when I ate an entire box of macaroni and cheese, and then saw a KFC commercial on tv and made hubs pick it up for me on his way home from work. I'd never eaten KFC before. Or since.

    Let's just say there was no surprise when I gained 60 pounds..


  2. Nobody knows what kumquats are. Nobody. Standing by to hear about what you ate for Thanksgiving. Maybe you could stuff your turkey with Wendy's Chili? Grateful for you and so thankful to see your words in cyberspace once again. Blessings, friend.


  3. Okay this was a really funny post! Totally had no idea that your pregnant, congrats! Honestly I can't believe that your kumquat will let you eat that much…I was always sooooooo sick, no room for food, except cheese!!!! LOTS of cheese!
    Loved the slinky-less box…too funny! ; )
    So, I can't wait to hear what you eat for Thanksgiving, I am sure it will sounds delightful!


    I miss you! I've been out of the loop as we just moved on Friday! I packed in two weeks…nothing to it! Just have someone lined up to clean for you…I wish I had!!!
    Take care my friend! Be back soon!


  5. You are unbelievable ๐Ÿ™‚ The way you talk of your belly… so funny! You'll look back on these days with fond memories, while you're eating tofu and salad, LOL.
    I had to visit your blog again when I saw your comment on another blog and you said you felt like doing dishes because of her post. I knew you wouldn't disappoint when I needed a good laugh.


  6. Well, you're not alone in the betrayal. This little one has turned me into a sugar-cereal FREAK. Golden Grahams WITH chocolate cereal to be exact. (The betrayal being the HEALTHY cereal nut I once was, btw).

    And if it makes you feel any better, I have a feeling a kumquat is much less freaky than a carrot! I told my kids the baby is the size of a carrot….they looked at me and asked if she was really that skinny, and if she had arms…

    Happy carpet installation! ๐Ÿ˜‰


  7. You kill me. You want betrayal? I'll show you betrayal – our last baby made me puke for 8 months. The only thing I could keep down was salsa. No lie. Oh, and I say 8 months because at 8 months, she had had enough and came into the world a month early. And not only that…I never used to belch until I carried her. She re-arranged something in my insides. Now I can belch like a truck driver…shame.


  8. i had to wikipedia “kumquat”. this is what i found:

    “Kumquats or cumquats are a group of small fruit-bearing trees … blah blah… The edible fruit closely resembles that of the orange (Citrus sinensis), but is much smaller and ovular, being approximately the size and shape of an olive.”

    why didn't they say that? why didn't they say “as big as an olive”?
