A post about nothing

So, I guess I don't really have much to talk about.. I just thought I'd update everybody on how we're doing up here in Brem Brem.

--Pregnancy: I'm finally starting to feel better; however, that does not mean I've gotten up off the couch any night this week (besides for church youth activities). I feel fat, but I've only gained a pound.. probably all in the boobs (seriously). I'll be 14 weeks tomorrow.. yay! My risk for miscarriage in the 2nd trimester is pretty low, so that's good. We will find out the gender in early June, so we are really excited. So, the word is out at work.. The director of my department congratulated me at lunch, and made me feel good. She only thought I was 5 or 6 weeks along, by how I look. So, I only feel like a fatty apparently. I'll post a picture sometime later when it becomes more apparent that I'm pregnant and not just bloated.

--Work: Still working full-time. Blech. Can't believe I have to do this for at least 3 more years. Graham got a temporary job working for the Census Bureau. He says he works with a bunch of dim-witted people.. to put it nicely. He's also a sales/marketing manager for a software product, so we'll see how that goes.

--Church: Graham got put BACK into Young Men's as the Scoutmaster. I told him I can finally think of him as a man again (after his Primary Chorister calling).

--Summer: Our one and only vacation is planned for California in June.. and I cannot wait. We're driving down, which should be fun, but hey.. at least it's better than not going..? We hope to go camping with our friends in the area a couple of times, which should be interesting with a pregnant belly..

--Miscellaneous: I got a ticket for running a red light. I was turning right, and apparently didn't stop all the way. I thought I could fight it at court, but when I saw that they had VIDEO cameras, I admitted my mistake. I figured humor would work best, and it did. I had the judge and courtroom laughing, and the judge reduced my ticket down to $60 from $124. Not bad eh? Plus, it doesn't go on my driving record!

Anyways, I haven't figured out how to post a blog using my phone, so my posts will continue to be few and far between. Stay tuned though..

So what did you say in court?

The not really showing yet stage of pregnancy is really annoying. You should be recognizably pregnant soon though. I'm glad you are starting to feel better. That helps. Bummer about the ticket, but I'm impressed you were confident and cool enough to make the judge laugh and get off with a lighter fine. I get really tongue tied in stressful situations like that. Hope you guys have fun in CA in June. It's always nice to visit home.

Congrats on pregnancy! That's awesome. You made me laugh so much with one of your posts on facebook-- I have become so hooked on cheese since being pregnant-- I always associated greasy/ cheesy with nausea before I actually got pregnant... and oh no! The more cheese, the better!
