Week 16: Yappy dogs, LAX and Nuns.

So I'm sitting in LAX waiting for our flight and this lady sitting directly behind has the YAPPIEST dog.

Let me paint the picture for you. 

We woke up at 4am to be at LAX at 5am to find out our flight doesn't leave until basically 9am (you just have to be early, Christmas time brings out all the crazies. ;) ) I saw this lady and her pomerian and chihuahua sitting pretty far from us, and thought to myself, " there is no way in hell these dogs are for emotional support", I was wrong. Then this lady thought it might be a good idea to move closer to us. Needless to say, this dog is bringing out all the wrong emotions right now for me. Here's to praying this lady isn't on our flight. 

Guess that margarita is gonna have to wait a few months.... but this would be me not preggo. 

Yappy dogs make me crazy enough without the pregnancy hormones. Here's to hoping I don't drop an F bomb, because there are Nuns sitting adjacent to me. NUNS.

How did I get so lucky?

On to week 16 preggo stuff.

So this week has been pretty good. I will tell you that the gas part hasn't gone away though. No matter what you do. I sat through the Star Wars movie, and felt horrible for the random man sitting next to me, I had the worst gas, but was super thankful how loud this movie was. The theater was packed to I played it up to the fact everyone was in there.. and if there were any toots it could have been from anyone. 

Who am I kidding? He knew.

Cravings: Salt and vinegar chips are at the top of the game this week. It will be a wonder if I don't gain a million pounds this pregnancy. Anything and everything orange. So many oranges. 

Aversions: EGGS. I don't know if its the texture or what, but my goodness I can't handle them this week, I think they smell like wet dogs. What is wrong with me?

Emotions: At LAX, I felt an abundance of emotions. I was angry, why there were so many people so early. I mean, what do you mean everyone get to the airport super early before a holiday? Blasphemous. Sleepy. Hungry. Right when we got into Houston, we go to Buccee's. It's pretty much just what you do after you've been away from Texas for months on end. I will tell you right now that everyone was so nice from the cashiers to random people in the store, for instance, I asked Matt a question at the checkout line and per usual he didn't "hear" me, well the super nice man behind me answered and was so nice. I WANTED TO CRY. I missed home so much. I am so proud to be from such a wonderful place. 

Sleep: I'm a professional sleeper again. Sleeping at 8pm is pretty much the norm and I have been getting home from work at 745p. Dreams are still insanely crazy. I had a dream that I all of things were floating out of my house and so were my cats. It was crazy.

Pregnancy thoughts:

  • I have missed Texas a lot. More than I think I have in years. I miss my support system and I miss how nice everyone is. I'm so glad there is a place that won't change no matter where I go and how long i'm gone. I'm more glad than anything that this place will exist for my children. There's nothing better than that. Nothing. 
  • This Christmas was absolutely one of the best Christmas' i've had in years. 
  • My mind started racing when I saw how parents kept their cool on planes when their kids decided to go psycho. Before I would just be annoyed and blame the parents for their kids' behavior being completely unsympathetic, now I'm wondering how they got their technique down and how the hell can I achieve that? Oh how things have changed. 
Thanks for listening to the rambles this week! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
