It's time to link up to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. This week, the letter is "W." W is for Wake-Up Call. The other day, I ran into my neighbor. I hadn't seen her in months! We were both catching up on our lives. She looked at me for a minute, then said, "Congratulations!" Huh? What was she congratulating me for? It then became painfully obvious that she was congratulating me on my pregnancy. Only...I'm not pregnant. She realized her mistake, then chided me for holding my hand on my belly. She said that if I don't want people to think I'm pregnant, then I shouldn't stand like that. Oh, and my big breasts didn't help the situation, she quickly added. I have to be honest. I don't think she thought I was pregnant because of where my hand was or because my (ahem) twins are on the large size. She though I was pregnant because I've gained some weight. Pure and simple. I know I need to eat better and get some form of exercise. Between my crazy work schedule and taking care of my daughter, I honestly don't have time to fit in any exercise. As it is, my day is pretty nonstop from 5:30 in the morning until 9:00 at night. My work offers a pilates class twice a week, which is a nice perk, but I really can't afford taking the tine to go to the class. I really have no other time to make up the lost hour. But I don't like people thinking I'm pregnant. As someone who has spent most of their life with the skinny gene, it's weird to no longer be that skinny girl anymore. While Target does have cute maternity clothes, I don't want to resort to having to wear them!
