Bring on the Greens

Okay, 7 weeks pregnant and counting. I go in for a dating ultrasound in a couple days to get a more accurate due date. So far, no morning sickness (yay!). I did get a call from my doc today and she said that my 1 hour glucose tolerance test result was high, which means that my body isn’t clearing out a high sugar load very efficiently. The remedy? I have to stick to a diabetic diet (boo!). The good news is that I currently have less of a sweet tooth than pre-pregnancy and I’ve been craving salads (with some kind of meat in them) a whole lot. The problem is that I’ve lately been too tired (or lazy… whichever you prefer) to make them myself and not very creative in putting salads together. I’m often even too tired to go to the farmer’s market or grocery store to get the stuff. So… I guess I just need to git er done and buy some salad ingredients and keep them in stock. If anyone has a yummy and EASY salad recipe for me, please share!



We’ve recently had some visiting relatives and a friend from Singapore stop into town. We had TONS of fun showing them around some of New Mexico. I also learned that Singapore is an island country, a little smaller than Albuquerque, but with a population that is about twice what we have in all of New Mexico. Pretty crowded place, I guess. We got to try some of the food from Singapore when my cousin and his classmate cooked a really delicious dinner for us, and I think they were pretty happy to try some authentic New Mexican food with all the green chile deliciousness as well. While we had visitors, we did some hiking in the mountains, went to Santa Fe, the VLA near Socorro, Stone Age Climbing gym, and the guys did some caving at Junction Cave at Malpais National Monument near Grants, NM. Fun, fun, fun. Check out my pictures page for some pics.

In other news, I took a neat picture last week.

Yippee Skippy!!!! We’re excited!
