Dead snail and know-it-all crackers

In the last 2 days I have had 24 spam comments.

That means I’ve hit the big time, right?  Right?

As per usual I am 8 years behind on your blogs, but I super pinky promise to catch up by Sunday (again).  Things have just been crazy, especially at work.  Also, I sleep and pee pretty much nonstop, so you know there’s also that.

Anyways, as my brilliant friend Mandy told me, every day you tell someone new.  I don’t mean to tell people about my pregnancy, but it slips out.  A lot.  My dad’s entire family knows at this point (admittedly I’ve gotten a lot closer with them in the last year).  All 6 of the parental units know.  My sister (and presumably her husband know).  My running friends know.  Some friends from undergrad know.

I think the moral here is I cannot be trusted with secrets.  I don’t really have a lot of them because I cannot keep my mouth shut.  If I’m specifically told not to repeat things then I can usually keep them to myself, but I struggle.  I will never ever make it as a super spy or member of the witness protection program.

In other news, I got an obvious “fortune” cookie (more like know-it-all cracker).

Between you and me, I’m struggling with being poor.  It’s not even so much the money as it is the uncertainty.  I don’t know if I’ll have to go back to work after this baby (I don’t want to), and even if I do, I don’t know that I’ll have a job to go back to.  And while we have been very luck that my husband can find temp work, that does not set us up with wads of cash and decent benefits.

Is it obvious that I have no idea what to do with this blog now that I’m not running for the next EIGHT months or so?  I’m too tired to go for a walk right now and every time I run, I bleed.  Which sucks.  Especially for my mental health.

Anyone else totally unable to keep a secret?  If you have kids, how long did you manage to not tell people about your pregnancy?

Anyone else who can’t stop killing snails?  I’m done with tanks for a while because I suck at them.

What new hobby should I take up until I can run again?  I checked, underwater basket-weaving is full.  Perhaps if I try each of your suggestions I will find some entertaining blog post material.
