– Thanks to my insomnia and travel schedule, I watch quite a bit of TV on iTunes. This past week, I zoomed through the first seasons of “Upstairs, Downstairs” and “Call the Midwife.” Julie suggested the second series to me and it was right up my alley. However, I think there is a distinct correlation between that show and the myriad pregnancy questions I asked my doctor this week. Hmmm…
– I just realized that I am going to lose my Premier 1K status with United this year due to the pregnancy. I am not overly concerned, but man am I going to miss the benefits. Upgrades, more miles, better customer service…Bummer. Does anyone know if they grant status exemptions? On the other hand, I will re-earn Platinum status with Starwood again this year. Boo-Yah! — PS, I know all of you Moms are laughing while you read this!
– I am obsessed with Topo Chico mineral water. I have mentioned this before, but my obsession has morphed into an addiction. For example, I know exactly how many bottles of this stuff are in my house at any given time (currently 50). Like a true enabler (!), Blanca gifted me with a case of Topo Chico this week, along with this special 25.4 oz bottle.
Like a fine wine, I am saving this bottle for a special occasion You guessed it — this bottle will be coming to the hospital with me. I plan to chill it and drink it as we wait for the arrival of Baby Arnold. What? Is that weird?
