Guess What.....

So last Wed. I have feeling a little blah...Meaning I thought I was coming down with the flu. I then realized that I was 2 days late....Sent the hubby to the store and guess what...I was pregnant! I was shocked and a little excited, mostly just shocked. I mean we hadn't really been trying but we were not really preventing. I couldn't believe that we were really going to have a baby.

It's been hard getting used to all the things that go along with pregnancy. No drinking, being tired ALL the time, peeing ALL the time and being the most emotionally unstable person ever. Take Sat night for example. We went out for my birthday downtown and went to this dinner theater. Very cool! Afterwards, I was ready for my bed but everyone else wanted to stay and party. Not a big deal, several people had drove. I freaked out because I was afraid everyone was going to be mad at me for wanting to leave.....They of course all stayed, nobody was mad, except the pregnant lady!

This is going to be a long 9 months. We have our first doctors appt next week, so hopefully we will get to see something.

Spaghetti and a bottle of wine...

So day one of my birthday celebration was last night. I made a pot of Spaghetti, ceaser salad and garlic toast. Invited my friend Dave over and myself and my hubby drank 2 bottles of wine, ate our "sghetti" and drank some coffee and bailys. The boys enjoyed a nice cigar on the back porch in the freezing cold.

Day 2 begins today with a little work in the office, then off to West County mall to do a little birthday shopping for my birthday outfit for Saturday night.

Heres a funny picture I found of myself last night, Junior Year, curly permed hair, basketball cheerleader, lovely yes????

Franklin my friend, I don't give a damn!!

Happy HNT!!

Okay, I know this is not me, obviously, but it was too cute to pass up. This is my nephew 2 years ago, giving him a bath in a hotel sink, they didn't have tubs.

Amen Brother!!

Here is an email I received from my hubby that says it all from George Carlin.

"Been sitting here with my ass in a wad, wanting to speak out about the bullshit going on in New Orleans. Here goes:

For the people of New Orleans...
First we would like to say, Sorry for your loss. With that said, Let's go through a few hurricane rules: (Unlike an earthquake, we know it's coming)

#1. A mandatory evacuation means just that...Get the hell out. Don't blame the Government after they tell you to go. If they hadn't said anything, I can see the argument. They said get out... If you didn't, it's your fault, not theirs. (We don't want to hear it, even if you don't have a car, you can get out.)

#2. If there is an emergency, stock up on water and non-perishables. If you didn't do this, it's not the Government's fault you're starving.

#2a. If you run out of food and water, find a store that has some. (Remember, shoes, TV's, DVD's and CD's are not edible. Leave them alone.)

#2b. If the local store has been looted of food or water, leave your neighbor's TV and stereo alone. (See #2a) They worked hard to get their stuff. Just because they were smart enough to leave during a mandatory evacuation, doesn't give you the right to
take their stuff...It's theirs, not yours.

#3. If someone comes in to help you, don't shoot at them and then complain no one is helping you. I'm not getting shot to help save some dumbass who didn't leave when told to do so.

#4. If you are in your house that is completely under water, your belongings are probably too far gone for anyone to want them. If someone does want them, let them have them and hopefully they'll die in the filth. Just leave! (It's New Orleans, find a voodoo warrior and put a curse on them.)

#5. My tax money should not pay to rebuild a 2 million dollar house, a sports stadium or a floating casino. Also, my tax money shouldn't go to rebuild a city that is under sea level. You wouldn't build your house on quicksand would you? You want to live below sea-level, do your country some good and join the Navy.

#6. Regardless of what the Poverty Pimps Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton want you to believe, The US Government didn't create the Hurricane as a way to eradicate the black people of New Orleans; (Neither did Russia as a way to destroy America). The US Government didn't cause global warming that caused the hurricane (We've been coming out of an ice age for over a million years).

#7. The government isn't responsible for giving you anything. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, but you gotta work for what you want. McDonalds and Wal-Mart are always hiring, get a damn job and stop spooning off the people who are actually working for a living.

President Kennedy said it best..."Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

He always finds a way to say things that all of us are thinking but can't figure out how to. He is so right. I get so tired of people bitching and moaning about their situation but do nothing to get out of it. Take some responsibility and stop blaming everyone around you for your problems.

I have a relative that is 30 something. This particular person had some bad shit happen to him growing up. (who didn't?) To this day, he blames everything that happens to him on his past. "It's the way I grew up, I can't help but be this way." EXCUSE ME???? You are 30 something freaking years old have 3 children, who you never see, have abandoned your wife, totally fucked up your life and this is all to blame on your rotten childhood? If everyone in the country blamed their problems on some crappy thing that happened in their childhood, we would all be crack whores and drug dealers living in the slums.

I wish people would just take the responsibility that just maybe YOU caused your life to be the way it is. And if you don't like it, then change it.

Freight Trains in my house....

How do men not wake themselves up snoring? I'm sitting here on the computer, my hubby is sawing away in the living room.

I'm getting prepared to host my sister and her family for Thanksgiving. She has 4 boys, good boys, but none the less, boys. I don't have children, I have two cats, they sleep all day. Lord help me!

If you live anywhere in the Midwest, I'm sure you are in the same boat as I am. I knew it was supposed to get cold here but holy crap. This morning I left to go to the gym and about froze my booty off. It was freaking cold. Right now, its 14 degrees. What happened to fall? We went straight to winter. Bring on the snow Mother Nature.

Week of Ungorging.....

So the past 4 days was the pits. My personal trainer was on vacation so apprently to my mind that meant I was too. Thursday started off pretty good but ended with a fat feast at Cheveys Tex-Mex and then Karaoke. Friday again started off pretty good but again ended in a beer drinking Hooters, and a pictionary war. Saturday was technically my day off but since I was bad the other 2 days I was good all day. But again by evening the evil voice in my head took over and I gorged myself on ITtalian, beer and shots. Spent the evening listening to my Uncle's band.

Yesterday was a day of football, too bad the RAMS sucked. I came home early and watched the 2nd half of Category 7: The end of the world. What a stupid ass movie. I can't beleive that I spend 4 hours of my life watching this lame ass movie. I loved the part that by simply turning off the power to the entire city of DC that could dissolve a storm. WTF?????

The weather has finally taken a turn for winter. It is raining and dreary hear today. I talked to my mother who is in northern Iowa, they had tornados on Saturday and its snowing today. Now that is messed up.

Are you freaking kidding me??

This made headline news on CNN. Pandas tie the knot
What is going on with this world?

I think she should win the Darwin Award

I was sitting at the house reading the local paper trying to get in my daily news, when I came across this story. Apparently, this highly intelligent woman (dumb ass) decided that it would be a good idea to take a short cut across the railroad tracks. Now mind you, the crosswalk was only about 100 yards from the women. She also had in tow her 3 children. Instead of taking the extra 5 minutes and walking the distance, she decides to duck under the train and instructed her children to do the same. Unfortunately, as the last child was "ducking under", the train lurched forward and severed the young girls arm. What the hell was she thinking? It's so amazing to me that she actually thought it would be a good idea to do this, let alone let her children do it. People should have to have some sort of test done before they can conceive to make sure their brains work.

While I'm bitching, here's something else that drives me insane. People that refuse to look before stepping off the curb into traffic. I understand that pedestrians have the right of way, but when I'm already half way through the crosswalk and you decide to step out in front of me, excuse me if I run over your ass. Whatever happened to "look both ways before you cross the street?" I actually had a women yell at me and give me the finger, when she walked in front of my car. I was in the middle of the crosswalk when she started to cross.

Same thing goes for people on bicycles in intersections. A couple of years ago I was making a right hand turn in the subdivision, when this schmuck on his bike on the sidewalk approached. I was halfway into the subdivision and instead of the biker stopping, he kept going and ran into the back of my car. He yelled at me that he had the right of way. I so wanted to go back and run him and his crappy bike over.

Day Something, I gave up counting!!

I broke the cardinal sin of dieting and got on the scale today. What an exciting day in my house! I've lost 6lbs!! Doing the happy dance! It won't be long now and I will be looking like this..

Okay, so maybe not so much like Jessica, but a girl can dream right.

So this past weekend we went to my Cousins country house. They do this once a year, guns, clayshooting, hayride, chili, beer and a huge kick ass bonfire. Everything was fine up until the point that the torrential downpour from hell came upon us. One minute we are sitting around the fire, roasting marshmallows and the next we are running for our lives from the onslaught of wind, rain and leaves. Now, 2 weekends ago, I fell and sprained my ankle. Since then I've been hobbling around. Combine that with 1/2 case of beer, high heel boots, rain and attempting to run, guess who fell face first into the mud? Ding, Ding, Ding, if you guessed me. It was actually pretty funny, I haven't had mud and grass stains on me like that since I was a kid.

luckily we all made it safe into the barn and I didn't hurt myself anymore than I already had.

I'm off to the gym for my Tuesday night cardio session and then back home to watch House MD. (One of the best shows!!)

Google Pics....

Another list of stuff. I've stolen this from approx. 1,450,320 people, but who really gives a flying rats ass right?

Anyway, heres what you do. Go to google.com. Click on images. Enter the following subjects in the search and post the first pic that comes up.

1. Where you grew up
2. Where you live now
3. Your name
4. Your grandmothers name
5. Your fav. food
6. Your fav. drink
7. Your fav. song
8. Your fav. smell
9. Your fav. sound

Here's what I got back:

What do 2 cases of beer, a sprained ankle and lots of boobs have in common?

Our 3rd annual Halloween party.Check out the website for more pictures.. It was a crazy night and I lived to tell about it. I did strain my ankle which sucks a bit. The only good thing about that is that my personal trainer, Killer Keith, can't punish me as hard as he has been. No running in place or jumping jacks for this girl. I'm only allowed to do weight machines and the bike.

On a good note, I've lost 5lbs since starting this program. It's exciting to finally see some changes. I don't have much patience so if things don't happen fast I get a little pissy.


So the weather I've decided is bi-polar. It is worse than a woman. Today it was almost 80 degrees. A week ago, I had frost in my yard. I love this time of year, my favorite time of year actually. I love the chill in the air, the colorful leaves, the yummy food that comes along with fall. I just hate the temp changes. My body doesn't like it either. I've been in a constant state of sickness since the end of Sept. Figure it out would ya, Mother Nature!! You are starting to piss me off!!!

I got up off my lazy ass today and did some fall cleaning. It was a beautiful day out so I decided to take advantage of it. I got out the cleaning supplies and washed windows inside and out. Cleaned all the cobwebs off the porch and hosed down the screens and front mat. I only broke one screen trying to get the stubborn piece of shit back in. Why do they make the screens smaller than the window? They were near impossible to get out and twice as hard to put them back in. I did make my 7 year nephew help me. I was babysitting today and thought it would be good for him to sweat a little. Sitting in front of the X-Box all day is frying their little minds!!

Have a great weekend,

Peace Out!
