Good morning! It's cloudy and rainy this weekend here, how is it where you are? The weather here is so weird - it's really hot and dry in the summer, so everything dies, and then it all springs to life in the winter. Our yard is ridiculously green right now (All weeds), I just can't believe it. Then my friends post pictures of 8 inches of fresh show, and talk about the first big accidents of the year that coincide with the first big snow of the year, and I remember why we were so happy about a move to California: easy access to snow without having to live in the snow.
I really don't have much to say today. I'm avoiding a paper that I'm working on about the documentation a company must have when they elect to hedge a foreign transaction. Yes, it is exactly as boring as it sounds. You know what isn't boring though? The fact that if I just buckle down and work, I will be done with my Bachelor's degree in December 2017! There is light at the end of this tunnel!
Also, we have wild turkeys that live all over the suburbs out here. This is across the street from a school and a shopping center. Totally unrelated to anything, but funny, right? They all mysteriously made themselves scarce about 2 weeks ago - I'm thinking they started fearing that they would end up on someone's table, and headed for higher ground.
In other random news, I have been craving the steak salad from Costa Vida so hard lately. In fact, I had one for lunch Friday, and another one yesterday. They were both magnificent. The baby is doing this really fun thing lately where he/she makes everything sound revolting except for one food. Generally at lunchtime. If I try to convince myself to think about eating something else, I get nauseous and start gagging. So instead of fighting it, I roll with it. Please don't judge me.
And speaking of baby, we're already bumpin' a little bit around here. I'm almost 14 weeks now, but this was taken a few days ago. It's hand to believe that in such a short time my stomach went from being mostly flat to looking like I've been eating Thanksgiving every day. I'm curious to see how much more pronounced it is at Christmas, when I'll be about 19 weeks. I'm already transitioning into maternity, and haven't been able to wear pants that weren't leggings for almost 3 weeks now.
Anyway, that's it. I should get back to foreign currency financial instruments, because this baby is not going to bring its own money with it. Unless he/she is ridiculously adorable, and becomes the next Gerber baby or something... We can all have hopes and dreams, I guess.
