Happy Halloween

And it is indeed happy, for it's Friday, Halloween, and Homecoming all wrapped into one! Also, I can almost say that my "all day" sickness (as opposed to just morning) is gone.

Perhaps you've noticed the new "ticker" in my column to the right. It's true; we're expecting our first child. So far, people have asked/said the strangest/most obtrusive things.

A List (by no means comprehensive) of Things I've Been Asked or Told:

* Had you been trying long? (Last I checked this wasn't your business unless I offered it first.)

* Was this expected/Did you mean to get pregnant? (I am the kind of girl who carries the contents of several cabinets in my purse lest anyone need something. I also try to shop for Christmas gifts all year long. I am not, by any means, the kind of girl who gets pregnant accidentally. No offense if you did.)

* Are you feeling pudgy yet? (No, but why, do I look fat? Thanks so much.)

*"Now you are a sacred vessel." (What can you say to this?)

However, for the record: "yes, we're totally excited and no, we will not be finding out the gender."

I figure since I've never put up a good photo of the husband and I
(unless you count the one in my sidebar) ,
this was a good time to post an updated one.

It's the best I can do right now.

I have been very uninspired lately. I get up at the crack of dawn, against my will, to go to work, where I count the hours until I can leave and go home to lay on the couch like a lump. It's hardly fodder for blogging. In lieu of anything interesting in my own life, here are some sites that I enjoy:

Thinking about getting a pet, but would like to rescue one?

Do you need new address labels or have started thinking about your Christmas cards?

Need a unique gift or are looking for something for someone you don't really know well? Try this site.

Another amusing time-waster that is not for the faint of heart.

Last and totally unrelated, I recently discovered this conditioner:

Yeah, yeah, it's moisturizes, but more importantly, it smells fantastic. In fact, the smell of my own hair is the only thing keeping me going today.
