The gas station I have been filling up at lately has gotten rid of their 79 cent coffee/coffe type product for any size. Now each size has their own price. It's still almost $3 cheaper than that same size at Starbucks (which is too rich for my taste). I don't get coffee drinks often, but a couple times a month as a treat.

Neighbor is Moving

We just found out that one of our neighbors (the chiroractor) is moving to a new house with his new wife in our town. When I first heard the news I felt these hurt feelings, like, how could he leave our little cul-de-sac neighborhood. But I quickly acknowledged that these were selfish feelings and that is good for them to move because he built and lived in that house with his old wife. Besides, it's not like we spent a lot of time with them. It was just predictable and comfortable. It's the change that what I need to deal with. We don't really know who is moving in. Apparently the person who our neighbor bought his new bigger house from is the same person who bought his. A kind of flip-flop thing. But we are not sure whether or not this guy intends to live in our little neighborly driveway. From what we heard from another neighbor is that he did this flip-flop thing so he could sell his big expensive house and hopefully have an easier time trying to unload the smaller less-expensive house. Guess we'll see.

So, two nights ago I had this dream that I wanted to remember to tell Andy about - but forgot. Until last night when I was up with Isabel and I was thinking about the dream that she just woke me up from.

The dream I was having was about me being pregnant (with another child) and having all these contractions and going to the hospital to give birth, but the whole time in the dream I was thinking I was supposed to have given birth the day before. Then it hit me (as I thought about the dream), I dreamt the previous night that I was giving birth and hated all the contractions and was afraid of all the crotch pain afterwards. But I never did give birth in either dream.

Something weird in last nights deram is that they had a new program implemented where doctors observed you via webcam if you came in after hours, so they didn't have to leave your house. And so you never had any real contact with the doctor until you were at the pushing stage. I remember talking with some other mom there who really liked it and I didn't like it at all and I was afraid that I would deliver this baby as fast as I did Isabel and he wouldn't be there in case something bad happened.

But the really weird thing is that Isabel just turned 40 weeks old yesterday, which is the length of a complete full-term pregnancy. Seems like my sub-conscious is working overtime here.

I also remember some other part of the dream where I was talking with a co-worker who was pregnant at the same time (as I was with Isabel and now as the "dream" baby) and she had another baby she was holding (another boy) and I was asking her how Charlie (the older one) was doing with this and she was asking how Isabel was going tio like being a big sister (I said she wasn't looking forward to it.)

But the whole time during both of the dreams I was consumed by fear of the painful contractions and pain after the birth. I don't think I include the birth because it went so fast that the pain from that was such a blur.

Fast Asleep

The other day I told Andy that Isabel was fast asleep and being the smart ass he is he asked, "Shouldn't it be slow asleep?" So I thought I should checkout the origin of fast asleep. Interesting. Makes sense now.

How do you eat your Oreo?

Andy & I were eating Oreos tonight and I realized that I didn't know how he eats his Oreo. So, I asked him and he smiles at me with a whole Oreo in his mouth. I guess that's one way. I eat mine in 3 bites. How do you eat your Oreo?

No Panty Lines?

So, I need some help here. Anyone have a recommendation on what they think is the best pair of underware is that does NOT show panty lines. I don't always like to wear thongs, so I need some decent full-butt ones that don't show lines. I have a Body by Victoria thong that I like and am not sure if the panty will be nice too. So, what are your suggestions?
