So sorry for the delay, but big news around here! Roy and I are expecting a christmas baby! Estimated due date (I've been hearing those words a lot lately) is Decembe 21, 2009! We find out what the gender is this Tuesday! For fun, I've decided to start recording the crazy vivid dreams i have been having. There are celebrity dreams, family dreams, and dreams i'm not even in. Stay tuned!

Finally really truly quitting

So I'm in the process of quitting smoking, not only for my own health but also for my fertility. So far I am down to 2 smokes a day, not entirely quitting, but I'm getting there. I've noticed some changes so far:
1. I no longer "have" to have a cigarrette at 10:00, and 12:00 (after lunch), or in the evening after dinner and before bed. At first I was shoving pretzels down my throat to try to avoid the temptation, but it's slowly getting easier to get my mind off smoking.
2. I can smell the cigarette stench when I get into my car. It's not nice.
3. I haven't purchased a pack of smokes in about 2 weeks. Pretty weird. But very good, since Arkansas is about to raise the cigarette tax 50 cents.

So I've got a little farther to go, but i'm confident that soon I'll be smoke free. I'm all ready alcohol free, thankfully, that one was easy.

But sometimes I think "Man, what did I do when I wasn't smoking?"

Roy's trip to Wal Mart

My lovely husband volunteered to go to the grocery store this morning. I feel kinda sorry for him now. He was very thoughtful and decided to pick up my feminine hygeine products for me. I told him before he left that they were the yellow boxes. The following are the words he said to me while describing:

" I really hoped for a glowing, shining yellow box that would just call out to me and say 'hey roy- take me and get the hell out of this aisle!'. Unfortunately, all of the boxes were BLUE, Kristen. And by the way, I had no idea that women needed so much stuff for down there. I mean come on, the aisle is L-shaped! So I hoped to find the box quickly, but no, I had to be the hairy pervert lurking in the corner, pacing back and forth, muttering about a yellow box. "

His strange trip didn't end there. Apparently Wal Mart has all ready set up for Christmas. He needed some Charcoal, and went in through the garden entrance. It appears that the Santa's are all ready out in front, ringing the bells. Today's shift included a Chinese santa who knows just a few words of English--" Merry Christmas, YOU!" . Roy said the santa made a point to say this to everybody coming in, forcing he and roy to "break down" so Roy could just get past him.

Always at Wal Mart, eh?
