The One With All the Carnivores

That title might be slightly misleading. I am mainly writing about one carnivore. And...that is me. Horror of all horrors, that is correct. I've broken a 4 year dedication to being red-meat free. What did I break it with? A big, juicy steak? A burger, piled high with all the fixins? Nope. Dear friends, I ate boloney and hot dogs. AH! (Today at work, it was decided my baby is certainly a boy, since all he wants me to eat is gross meat...and also he's affecting my bodily sounds and smells in a very adverse way. Also, it's my blog, and I can say stuff like that if I want!) It was all delicious though. It's quite fun to be eating food AND keeping it down. I need to gain about 2 more pounds to get back up to my pregnancy starting weight, and that should only take about 2 more days at the rate I'm going. 

Work is nuts this week. Tomorrow, the Regional VP of 'Bux is coming to my store to check us out...gah! So nervewracking. I haven't had too many of these big visits since getting promoted to manager, and I still get really nervous each time. There's tons of pressure and nitpicking and butt kissing...sigh. Luckily, I made a cheesecake to pair with some coffee for a delicious tasting, and if it tastes as good as it looks, I'm going to be earning some brownie points! 

Also, I'm attempting to be a better wife this week. With being so sick, I took a brief hiatus from all the duties of our house--granted, we split the duties since we're both working a lot, but I try to do the majority just because I'm a big fan of the whole wife-taking-care-of-the-hubby thing. Geoff has been amazing in my lack of accomplishment. He's done laundry, dishes...all sorts of stuff to make me a happy wife. He's takin such good care of me! Tonight, though, he's coming home to a (turkey) meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans. MMM. And, he's going to be home any minute, so off I go.

if you're gonna do something wrong, do it right ;)

stereotypes aside, girls like red meat too. and we sometimes stink too. so, I say all bets are still off on the gender.

also. you guys rock as a team. I love it when that happens.

I ate a ton of hot dogs in the first three months with Clare...and my farts are basically formidable. -Val

It might be a dairy concern too... I got lactose problems with my pregs.

Good luck with the important visitors to your store!

So glad your appetite is returning (with a vengenance)! Hot dogs are yummy! And so is bologna, but I'm a meat eating kind of girl...even the gross meats... :)

I am def a meat eater to the core... steak and potatoes are my fav dishes of all time. So, I agree with the others, you could still have a girly girl in there, you never know. I am glad your feeling better and hope your hubby enjoyed his dinner and that things went well at the store this week!!
