At what time is it appropriate to say, “There’s no point showering today, I’ll just catch one tomorrow.”?

Random Stuff

Just a couple of random things.

  • You may have noticed my ice cream cone bullets are gone.  Apparently my CSS subscription needed to be renewed (read: paid for) while I was having the baby.  I didn’t renew and now don’t have the code any more.
  • I miss my cones.
  • I am totally mildly obsessed with the HGTV Green Home.  I want that thing so badly!!  Like 800,000,000 other people.
  • I got a comment on my family page the other day that cracked me up.  A woman named Bethany who co-blogs at Scoopalicious commented.  She blogs about ice cream!  Is that funny? 
  • That reminds me- it’s time to break out the ice cream machine!
  • I’ve been lurking around everyone’s sites lately.  I am going to put some effort into actually commenting.
  • Guess what?  The Brown Eyed Girl is back!  And healthy!  Go show her some love.
  • Uhh…that’s it.
  • Great ending Mama.  You’re so freakin’ creative.

Mrs. CPA wants to know what bloggers I want to meet.  There are so many of you I would love to get together with I hardly know where to begin.  So in no particular order:

  • CPA Mom– if all goes according to plan I will be meeting her in July…I can’t wait!
  • Rachel of Crazy Is
  • Stacey at Crazy Mama- mmmm cake
  • Stacey of the Squirrel clan
  • That Chick– my super secret girlfriend!
  • Kim of Miss Zoot

  • Kellie my Rambling Target pal
  • Cagey– she has to bring her kids, I need to see their cuteness in person
  • SJ of All the Jones Men
  • Molly– I will help her find that damn sock!  (They may have enclosed it in the wall with the cat.)
  • Amy of A Family Story
  • Emma in Canada- she and Amy can give me scrapbooking tips
  • Julieof Abbily Ever After
  • Susan in Virginia- her kids really do say the darndest things
  • Tanis that Redneck Mommy- she kept her cool when she could have seriously kicked some ass!
  • Honi– one of the most upbeat people I know
  • Happy Working Mom– I’m pretty sure she gave Scoop her nickname
  • Joy at A Spot Of T- She guessed Scoop’s birthday correctly (I really didn’t forget- send me your address and I’ll send you the prize behind door number one)
  • Crystal at Boobs, Injuries and Dr. Pepper- my love for her has only increased these past couple of weeks.
  • Dawn at Baleful Regards- quite possibly one of the smartest women I’ve read
  • Frema– I’m so glad she’s letting the baby use the computer!
  • Karmyn– Dreaming of number three!

There are probably 40 people I have missed but that wee babe of mine is acallin’!  If I missed you feel free to complain in the comments- my brain is still not functioning properly!

Another Week!

Didn’t mean to leave for a whole week.  I’m not really sure where the time went.  What has been going on this past week?

  • Some of you may recall, my house is small.  I mean small, 900 square feet small.  We have done quite a bit of rearranging to make sure Scoop actually has a place to sleep.  Never mind space for diapers, bottles and assorted other baby crap.
  • Last Friday she wasn’t really moving around much so I went to the hospital for monitoring.  Her movements were down a bit but after icy cranberry juice she perked up.  Already scaring her mama.  Brat.
  • Monday I had my regularly scheduled monitoring.  She was perfect!
  • The Big Guy is on vacation this week.  He’s out right now so I can write this post.
  • I was supposed to see my Ob-gyn Monday afternoon but he got called away to a delivery and we rescheduled for Tuesday (yesterday).
  • Since I didn’t have to go to the doctor the Big Guy says, “Let’s go look at mini vans.”
  • Do you remember the Fun Monday when I told you how much I LOVED my Ford Taurus?
  • No?
  • Well, I LOVE my Ford Taurus.
  • I mean, I used to love my Ford Taurus.
  • Because now?
  • I have a freakin’ mini van.
  • Dammit.
  • It was the right thing to do.
  • How could we cram a 17 year old, a booster seat and a baby carrier into the back of the Taurus?
  • It was the right thing to do, right?
  • Went to the Ob-gyn yesterday and baby looks good.
  • But my blood pressure was a little high.
  • He thinks it’s just because I’m getting a cold but wants me to do the 24 hour urine test just to be safe.
  • For the next 24 hours I get to collect all my urine.
  • Glad to know that aren’t you?
  • Do you have any idea how hard it is to pee into a cup that you can’t even see because your baby belly is in the way?
  • Skid Row bums don’t piss on themselves as much as I have today!
  • I’m off to see what you guys have been up to.  I’ve missed you!
  • Depending on what the Big Guy is doing these next few days I may not be back until Monday.
  • See ya!

Merry, Merry, Happy Happy

Just a quick and late Merry Christmas to everyone!

Happy New Year too!

Hopefully the New Year will bring new energy and I will post more.

Love and miss you all.  Well, except the spammers who want to ensure I am satisfying my mate.  They can piss off.

Yup, Still Here

A quick one to let you know I am alive.  Things have been a bit overwhelming- more later, promise.

I didn’t realize how much time had gone by since my last post.

All is well with Scoop.  I go to the high risk doc tomorrow for one of those high tech ultrasounds.  Hopefully everything will still be good after that visit.

I was sick (caught the nasty cold the whole family had, I probably could have worked but every time I sneezed I peed, so yeah I stayed home)  last week and missed three days of work.  Highly unusual for me.  Now I am really behind and year end is coming up fast.

Just think- I’ll be on maternity leave soon and will post more.  Hopefully.

Like The Headless Chicken

Crazy, crazy day! 

Work is nuts.

Grocery store is crazy.

My cookie exchange party is Saturday.  I don’t even know what cookie I am making yet.  I still need to clean the house and make the food.  Wanna help?

Ebaby has a runny nose.  I hope it doesn’t get worse.  I would hate to do all the prep for the party to have to cancel at the last minute.  That would suck.

This is the second to last NaBlo post.  Hoo-frickin-ray!
