sushi. i want a caterpillar roll so SO bad right now. or a dragon roll. i'm graving sushi like it's going out of style. especially those eel varieties. i may break the 'rule' and eat some in utah- i don't trust iowa sushi, plus i don't know of any, and there are good enough upscale sushi places in utah that i can feel good about it.  (don't get your panties in a wad, japanese women eat raw fish their whole lives and their babies come out healthy and punky)

the magherita pizza from the Bell Tower Hostel in Xi'an, China. best magherita pizza i've found to date. maybe cause i was wanting something familiar, but nothing here has come close to that dang pizza. or any of them in china, for that matter. maybe i'll bite the bullet and get the good mozzarella and basil leaves and make my own.

energy. isn't it supposed to be coming back by now? i'm glad Damon finally has stuff to do during the day cause all i've been doing is lay in bed or on the couch. its exhausting. i haven't gotten anything unpacked really, put up any of our dozens of picture frames, finished sanding the table to get ready to paint... ugh. i'm tired just writing about it. Damon has done everything around here, cleaning and unpacking and laying out the frames on the floor hoping that will inspire me to make arrangements... poor guy.

i'm spending most of my days looking at baby things online and restaurant menus. online. cheesecake factory, pizzeria 712, places in des moines. i want so much food, but when i eat food i feel sick. right now i'm gauging how sick a box of kraft mac will make me feel afterwards.

but the reward, i can't wait. it's hard seeing new babies around and not wanting to wait another ALMOST 28 MORE WEEKS!

i'll try to update the blog more, especially since most of my days are spent sitting/laying in front of the laptop alone. should be conducive to productivity. mostly i just read blogs and watch episodes of "16 and pregnant" and "teen mom". if those babies can do it, i can.

I love 16 and pregnant. Great show :) What about "I didn't know I was pregnant" another favorite of mine. I can't wait to see you. I hope you have a pregnant belly by now that I can rub like a buddah...ok that's kinda creepy, but I do hope you're getting pregnant-fat. I'll be your photographer for you and take pictures of your bare belly...again, kinda creepy. How about we stick to the original plan of basking in the sunlight :)

How the heck did I not realize you were pregnant?? That is the best news. And your kid is going to be ridiculously cute- even if you DO eat sushi.

Yep, that all sounds about right. I've had two crying episodes when Rob told me I had to get up for work. It sounded like an impossible request. The food part comes back though. I have hit that official blissful part of that experience where you can basically eat 24 hours a day. I can't gorge but all of it tastes good again. Miss you guys!

Ive been reading for a while and didnt notice a part where you said you were pregnant! When I was pregnant, I couldnt stand to eat ANYTHING in the beginning! But trust me, IT WILL COME BACK, I promise!!

i see you too...
