Pet Peeves.... these are my feet, dude.

When it comes to pet peeves, I have about a million of them. One of them that got triggered this morning is people stepping on the back of my feet.

Plain and simple: If you are stepping on the backs of my feet, you are WALKING TOO DARN CLOSE TO ME.


So I started thinking this morning... I don't know that I ever step on the backs of someone's feet when it's not intentional. I mean, I like to give a flat tire with the best of them (esp to the Boss as we walk to lunch). But to unintentionally step on someone's feet? Really? Do you have to be walking that close? This isn't Europe and this one foot of space on either side of me belongs to ME.

I don't know, what do you think? I just really don't think there is much of a reason for it.


In other news:
  • My dentist did not yell at me today like I had anticipated. I've been horrible about flossing, mostly because I usually fall asleep on the couch around 9 and am prodded up to bed by Hubs. So I figured I would get lectured thoroughly. I'm very glad that wasn't the case!
  • I failed my one hour glucose screening last week (just *barely*) so now I'm carb-loading as instructed by the lady doctor today, tomorrow, and Thursday, and then fasting and going in on Friday for the full-on three hour screening. Wish me luck, if I fail I am majorly screwed, as carbs are about the only thing I get calories from these days. I find it laughable that someone who has gained ONE WHOLE POUND (woo!) during pregnancy may be put on a diet and exercise plan. I may get out of this pregnancy 10-20 lbs lighter than I went in. Wouldn't that be a hoot. It sure would save me time at the gym next spring.
We're off to another wedding this weekend, and I'll be sporting this dress in fuchsia. It's super bright, but oh well.


Hi! I'm Erin said...

I swear, every woman I know who has been pregnant in the past 5 years has failed their first glucose test. They must have changed the threshold for failure or something. Fingers crossed you don't have to go on the icky gestational diabetes diet.

Don't worry, you'll pass the 3-hour one, I'm sure! Oh, and the 3rd trimester will totally pack on the pounds for ya to give you a little something to do next spring. :-)

I failed the 1 hour - twice. I even kept my schedule clear for the morning of Veterans Day bc I'm off work and figured I'd be taking the 3 hour again.

Somehow I passed this time. I like this kid already. Oh and sorry, but I do hate you and your one pound. Geez, the baby weighs more than that now!!!!
