I'm at Andrew's computer right now and starting my computer up involves far too many steps. It's WAAAAAY across the room and I'd have to BEND DOWN to plug it in* and then wait for it to boot up and I'm exhausted just thinking about it. So this means I can't post pictures and I can't finish my post about how I feel about being pregnant right now. (Short answer: It stinks.) But what I can tell you is that I recently bought at $13 watch at Target, and it has CHANGED MY LIFE. I haven't worn a watch in years because the clasp on my good watch broke and it kept falling off my wrist. I got it "fixed" at least twice and finally gave up and stuck it in my jewelry box. Then I just started relying on clocks, my cell phone, and my innate sense of time. Since clocks are not everywhere, my cell phone is often difficult to access, and I have no innate sense of time, I have basically just been late for everything.**
Then one day I thought, "If only there were some sort of small clock device which I could strap to a part of my body, say... my wrist, so that I could simply glance down to see what time it is without having to search in my bag for my sleek-yet-difficult-to-find cell phone. I would gladly pay upwards of $15 for such a device!" And then, lo, I found racks of them at Target. Racks and racks. (Well, one rack. But still.)
Since acquiring my cheap watch, I continue to be amazed at how quickly I can find out what time it is at any given moment. I've also noticed that in this cell-phone society, no one wears watches anymore, and OTHER people seem equally startled at how fast I can tell them what time it is. It's like a magic trick.
The only catch is that I have to remember to wear it.
*This is a legitimate excuse because of the whole "pregnancy stinks" thing. I am not very bendy at the moment.
**In other words, nothing had really changed from when I wore a watch except that I didn't know HOW late until I got where I was going.
