Merry Christmas

WOW! It has been a busy couple weeks, I was in bed for most of last week with a very bad cold and for those of you who have been or are pregnant know there is nothing you can really take, so for the first couple days I was dying LOL. I did find out I could take regular Robitussin, so that helped. You can only imagine what our home looked like while I was sick, I could hardly got out of bed so I had a TON of things to clean up around here yesterday. It was nuts. I have a few last minute gifts to wrap for the boys and D and I am so done. The only thing left to do is go to MIL's Christmas Eve party tonight (LOTS of family there) and come home to bake cookies with the boys for Santa. YUM!

I plan to start posting more here agin like I use to, this month has just been so nuts. I Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy Hoildays.

TTYS

Saturday/Monday in a nutshell

I woke up early today and cleaned the kitchen, then got ready for work. Work went by pretty quickly. I got home picked up D and Aidan and we all ran a bunch of errands, picked up stuff at Carols for work the rest of the week, then headed to safeway for grocerys, we got 3 nights of food for $23 that was pretty good :) Then we picked up Austin from school. Since being home I have made a few lists of things I will need to do this coming weekend, Grocery shopping for the next two weeks, FINALLY getting our tree lol, Christmas shopping (just a couple things for each boy) bills, Friday I am having lunch with my Best Friend, and Saturday I am having lunch with my dad, and some where I plan on spending some time at Barnes and Nobles. I LOVE it there!

This last Saturday while MIL took the boys I went to Barnes and Nobles and spent 4 1/2 hours there lol. I grabbed a few SB magazines and a couple books and sat down on the floor down the Stephen King/Dean Koontz section (my favorite) I thumbed through a book called "Happy Housewives" by Darla Shine, It was so funny and I am adding that to my wishlist LOL. I also read a whole book called "Cold cases" (Lisa you would love this book, just like the shows on court tv and A&E, ALOT of cases I have never seen before). I could not put this book down so I read the whole thing. I did do a lap around the store to see if any of the lounge chairs were vaccant BUT they were all taken (my butt started hurting after about three hours sitting on the floor with my back against a bookshelf) one was even taken by a stack of magazines and when I tried to move them LOL, a girl from behind a bookcase said that was her spot "did you not see the magazines" UM okay yes but I had no idea Magazines could hold places DUH on my part "eyeroll" (I had grade school flashbacks of Becky saving lindas chair with her hair tie). So I went back to my corner with Dean and Stephen, I like it better down there anyways, LOL would people think I was nuts if I brought one of those folding chairs in a bag (you know the kind lol, people bring them to ballparks or camping and popped a squat in my section with stephen and Dean? Maybe I will do that next time. Heck my excuse? I am pregnant people lay off me LOL ;)

Alright I have homework to do and a bit of a sweet tooth, I am going to go get a spoonful of rainbow frosting from the fridge and hit the books before bed. Nightie night

:( Just me

Do you ever just feel like you don't belong any where? This is me at this moment...

A little of this, A little of that....

Hmmmm where to start? It's been a long month since I last posted, so many things going on, good and bad. What should I start with first? Okay how about the good stuff?

I had another Ultrasound and got some new pictures. The baby is doing fine, VERY active on the screen. I found out that I am actually two days ahead of what I thought I was. We will find out what we are having on Jan 2 ( so 2 1/2 weeks), I totally think it's another boy. I just have that feeling you know. Looks like I made it through this pregnancy with no morning sickness, how great is that :)

I got an A in school on my first course and it's moving right along, I am very happy with it and as soon as this baby is born I will be headed to bigger and better things in life, I am excited! D also finished his first Course at school and hopefully will be getting a job soon with the electician stuff soon.

I have alot more free time coming up now, work is going good.

Okay now on to the not so good stuff. I have been so depressed the last few weeks. Everything gets me so down in the dumps! Money is one of the big things. Right now we are just getting by from our paychecks to paychecks. His are going straight to rent (one whole check each month) and the bills. Then there is my $150 I get from my job each week that pays for the gas in our cars and food for the week. It really is the pits but one good thing is we are pretty much doing this on our own now. We get paid soon and that will go towards the Christmas tree (Austin has been asking for it for two weeks now and we have to keep telling him that we are waiting for the 15th.) a couple small gifts for the boys and the rest goes into bills and our living needs for the next 3 weeks since I will not be working due to the school break. I think things will finally start looking up money wise after the new year, we shall see.

Myself and all the girl on the DT for the only Manuf. DT I was on were let go last week in an email. The company just did not make it in the Scrapbook industry, so it shut down :( ? I am so sad! I am now only on one DT for THEE best DT I have ever been on LRS. It has been the best experience I have had yet with DT's and I am happy to have it. Just bummed about the MD dt but what can I do? I am looking around to see if there is something else out there for me to be apart of, I am giving up on the chances of being on anymore Manuf. DT's so far the ones I have been on or been asked to try out for have all either closed or just stopped talking to the memebers. I am thinking I want to be apart of an online store/Community. I have been in the past and enjoyed it. Just need to look around I guess.

I have been let down by a few people the last couple weeks and it's been depressing. I know the hormones have gotten me all wacky lately but there are certain things you do not do to your friends! The only thing I can think to do, to stop being hurt is to just let them go! It's not worth it to me anymore.

Alright well I need to go clean up the kitchen and the dinner mess. TTYS
