A duo of 2 unrelated thoughts

I can't seem to collect my thoughts into one cohesive post today.
I blame last nights wine...

Last night was one of those nights that catch you by surprise. My husband surprised me by getting off work early and brought home a heart shaped pizza from my favorite restaurant. We ate and watched the Grammy's and after we put Jack to bed we cracked open a bottle of wine.
And then another.
And then we were out of wine and my husband was scurrying around the kitchen like a mad scientist looking for something to make.
We watched the Grammy's-my all time favorite awards show-and we talked and laughed.
And this morning at 7am when Jack woke up, and we both were a little hungover, he got up with Jack and let me sleep. Which is better than any flower, card or candy and one of a million reasons why I love him.

This Thursday I am taking a vacation to San Diego, sans baby and husband, to visit an old friend from college.

While I am super excited to get away and have a fun weekend with some gal pals, the preparation for leaving is stressing me out.
I have no idea what to pack. None of my warm weather clothes fit me anymore because I've gained 10 lbs in the last month. 10 POUNDS!!
Now I am sure that I could be eating better and working out more, but believe me when I say that I don't know where these 10 lbs are coming from. I was actually working to lose weight this month. So I am only left to wonder if my thyroid is going crazy again. I have this really cool thyroid condition called Hashimoto's disease and  I  guess I need to go back to my doctor and see if my medication needs adjusting. Until then I am left with all this extra poundage to take with me to Cali. I was just coming to terms with this when my friend sends me this text message:

"Get your bikinis waxed ladies, I think it's going to be warm enough for the beach next weekend"

Crap
Suddenly I realize that  if none of my shorts fit me from last summer, my swimsuit probably won't either. What's even worse is the fact that I have virtually no time or money to shop for new clothes so I will probably have to pack some of my maternity clothes.

This realization makes me sad, angry and oddly enough...hungry.

Since there is no chance of losing 10 lbs in 4 days, I text my friend back and let her know that this weekend I will only be photographed from the neck up and that I will be drinking copious amounts of wine.
