Apparently, baby does NOT like bananas. I had previously been able to eat them (though, I couldn't really look at them or smell them). I tried to have one just now, opened it up, and immediately started violently dry heaving. So gross. Had to throw the entire banana away.

Just when I think I'm starting to feel a little better...

Also irritating me this morning? Before I got pregnant, Brad and I planned a weekend getaway to celebrate our 10 year anniversary together to New York - to visit the Howes Caverns and Herkimer Diamond Mines, along with a neat ghost tour Saturday night in Cooperstown. We'd booked a room at a Holiday Inn in Oneonta. Well, after this weekend, seeing how little energy I had and knowing I get very queasy at night, we thought it best to cancel the trip. It's like, a 3 hour drive or something, plus not being able to stay up for the ghost tour, etc, just didn't make sense. So, I go to cancel our hotel reservation, and find out, it is non-refundable. It's a $205 room. I haven't cancelled yet, we're now going to wait out the week and see if maybe I am feeling up to the trip after all, but honestly, it makes me even MORE upset that we are going to be out $200. Brad's point of view is that it's going to cost even more to just drive out there to use the hotel room, so we should just skip it, but it bugs the crap out of me that we'd lose the $200. Grrrr...

I'm working from home this afternoon.


  1. Man, that sucks :-( I don't get why anything is nonrefundable. You're not being a dick, you're sick! Grr :-(

  2. It's my own fault, I chose the cheaper, prepaid, non-refundable rate because at the time, I didn't expect to be pregnant anytime soon and need to cancel!

  3. :( Herkimer is so close to me, I would have loved to crash your vacation...I mean...arranged to see you for an hour or so.

    You could call them and explain the situation, sometimes people are reasonable and will give you the refund. It couldn't hurt to ask. (Says the
    girl with so much anxiety she has to write out a script to call anyone at all)
