What a week....

So... it has been quite the week. Last week I got news that my 16 year old cousin had committed suicide. That was quite the shocker and was only complicated further by family issues that have been ongoing for many years. So the funeral was Monday. Funerals are always tough, but being hormonal right now and it being a child all added on to the other b.s. it was a challenging and emotionally draining day.

Yesterday I had a course to go to.... the subject - some new accounting regulations for the municipal world. With my accounting background, I knew going in how difficult it is to make a subject like that fun and interesting but at least before I was pregnant I could drink tons of coffee to keep me awake. So yet another long day.

This morning I had a doctors appointment. 33 weeks. Yikes - can you believe it. I was just telling Scott the other day how I still can't quite believe that in 7 weeks I will be a mom. I don't feel any different... and I certainly don't feel like I have turned into the "mom type" in the last 33 weeks. Which is alright because here's hoping that I don't turn into a soccer mom where the only interesting thing I have to talk about is the consistency of my little one's shit.

I have been organizing the nursery and finally got the blind hung. It was quite the ordeal that involved my dad's handyman skills only to have Scott have to fix it. Grandma K got the dust ruffle and the crib bumper pads all sewed up and I have almost got them put on. The quilt is finished, just last minute details now. When I finally get it all arranged how I want it I will post pics. The carseat and stroller have been purchased and I convinced Scott to put it together for me the other night. Did you know that the GRACO quattro tour stroller is SUV tough?? Ya know in case you wanted to go off roading with Pedro??

This weekend off to Minot. I am going to enjoy the air conditioning and the pool and I think I have even convinced Scott to take me to the zoo. I love the zoo. It should be a relaxing weekend and I'm told that now Joe and Kyla might even be joining us!

Social Events

Me and the bros.

Morgan and T-Rex - She may be little but look out. ahaha

Reag and Brentie after about a million tries to get them both looking normal.

Pam and I.


Pam and my date for the evening Kari-Ann. And what a fabulous date she was might I say. I never had to worry about getting my own drink or anything. I've never been tended to quite so well. You should maybe start to worry a little Scott.
Great weekend - it was awesome seeing everybody. But now I need to catch up on my sleep. Tonight I think I shall do laundry and watch a chick flick.

She's a Brick.... House....

31 WEEKS!!!
I had a wonderful moment on Saturday while planting caraganas where I looked down and noticed that my hands had sausages on them.... not fingers. My hands were so swollen it was gross. And actually kind of painful. Other than that, pregnancy is a dream. Even though I feel like a tank I had a lady tell me this morning that I look small. HA. I don't even care if she was just trying to be nice... at this point I'll take anything I can get.

After a very productive and fun evening with Kari-Ann on Saturday night, I am oh so close to being done the quilt for Pedro. I just have to finish the hand stitching and then I will post pictures. I'm very proud of it though and can only hope that one day Pedro will appreciate all the love his mama put into it for him.

Does it make you a loser if you're excited to have a quilting date on a Saturday night???

Oh... and I'm super pumped about getting a hammock today!!

And it's Friday!!!! And it's supposed to be sunny all weekend. Can't wait to putter in my flower beds and do some odd jobs outside. And then maybe lay back in my new hammock and read my book and have a nap. Sounds blissful doesn't it?

Who's the Boss

Monday night I was a little grumpy so Scott dumped me off on Alicia and Trevor who took me to Rolla for Subway. Once there I proceeded to order the exact same thing that I have ordered there for the last 10 years. Roasted chicken, loaded with jalapeno peppers and of course the chipotle southwest sauce. And then I topped it off with a Mello Yellow. Mmmm. I knew that I might pay later for the fact that I had consumed more caffeine than I've had in the last 7 months, but who cares right. This is my night. To heck with you Pedro.

Across from the Subway there is this auto repair place -we got quite a kick out of the sign.
Is it really necessary to advertise this on your business sign??

After doing a tour of the town and scouting out the local ALCO, I managed to whine my way into the Dairy Queen parking lot. One pecan mudslide later, I was one happy camper.

So I get home, completely cheered up. Watch some tube with the hubby and go to bed around 11. At midnight I jump out of bed run to the bathroom and ralph everything up. I got a pail and spent the next hour or so sitting with said pail trying to get back to sleep. In the meantime, Scott has yelled from bed to see if I'm okay ( real touching I know - let's hope he improves for when I go into labor). So despite thinking I can still do exactly what I want and not think about Pedro, I learned a hard lesson on who's the boss right now and unfortunately it's not me!

Hello.... is anyone there??

Okay today is all about challenging everybody out there that has their own blog to please for the love of god update it. I'm sick of looking at all of those ancient posts. I know that everyone is currently obsessed with facebook and what not ( that's right I said what not) but this is getting ridiculous. I'm not going to mention any names, cuz I'm just that nice, but if you people don't start entertaining me with your life stories then I will be forced to work more. And we don't want that now do we??
