Hy-Vee Grocery Ads

Dom said to me today:
"Mom, can you save the Hy-Vee grocery ad flier? Umm, sure. "Why?"
"I like looking at all the food in the pictures."

Oh, I am so sorry, son! Food making around here these days is all but delightful. I think a better word is survival. We've had cereal for dinner the past two nights. I have been to Chipotle, Panera Bread, The Oven (2x), Papa Johns....all futile attempts to ease the Ferris Wheel feeling I feel like I've been riding on and can't get off.

Serious morning, afternoon, evening sickness. The idea of food and worse yet the preparation of it...not in my hemisphere. The ole' 9-1-1 almost had to be called today when the lunch menu was ham and cheese sandwiches. Just writing the word "ham" makes me gag.

On a happy note, they love it. They cheered when I said we were having cereal again. I promise, I will cook again. Just not for about 9 more WEEKS. Did I say that?


  1. Ugh...I remember I couldn't be around food for what seemed like 6 Hang in there. I don't know a kid who doesn't love cereal for dinner...:)

  2. Remember a week ago when you were nervous about NOT being sick? Of course not. The nausea erases all such memories :).

    Dominic is so sweet!

  3. Right there with you. I haven't made a meal all summer. Seriously.

  4. I JUST started my 14th week and have been on a major cooking spree. Up until that point, we went into debt with all the ordering out!! It's just the way it goes I guess. Next time, we'll start a "1st trimester food fund" between babies so we don't charge the credit card!!! :)

  5. that is how I felt this summer too...thank God for cereal and restaraunts...
