I have not been on here because being a full time working mo fo is catching up with me. I really just wanted to say "mo fo" Sounds so bad. Like I'm really cool or something.

Anyway I'll fill you in on what's been going on. As you know I've got a bun baking and I am very excited! However- being pregnant really sucks.

For example: I got a cold on the 28th of December and it felt like I was never going to get over it. I don't remember the last time I felt that miserable or had been sick for that long. It really does make a difference when you can take a some generic NyQuil OR when you have to just suffer. BUT for baby's health I refrained from taking any OTC. I did, however develop a sinus infection and had to get antibiotics. Hope baby isn't mad at me for that and developing another middle finger.

So- from being sick I missed a Saturday of working and I didn't know about this ridiculous rule: If you miss a weekend day you are mandated to make it up on your next weekend day off. Who cares if you have other obligations!! Soo.. because I "need" my job the company can pretty much do whatever they want. It wouldn't have mattered if I knew about that rule or not. I was sicker than a dog (although I have never really seen any sick dogs in my life). But I'm still mad because I am spoiled in getting my weekends off and now I can never make any plans.

Now Kirby and Gavin have gotten "the sickness" (as I've dubbed it). They seem to be doing okay because they have been keeping up on medicine. :) Thank goodness.

What else has happened? Oh my pants are getting tight. I'm not ready for THAT!

And.... I spend the first portion of my days feeling half queasy. No morning sickness. I call it morning semi-nauseousness.

I know it sounds like all I'm doing is complaining, but really, I'm doing pretty good... I could really eat some thin mints. Mmm. ...and a pickle.

Rigging the Game

We have this party game called "Say Anything" The kids love it. It is this game where you go around the table each person asks a question and everyone writes an answer down. Then the question asker votes on which answer they like the best. Then all the answerers get two votes to choose the answer they think the asker is going to choose. If you really want to know more I suggest you visit this site:

I played the other night with friends and found a creative way to tell my news to them. The fun in telling and element of surprise was so well received we thought we'd do something similar with the children. We got them all together and Kirby asked the question and I put in the right answer. Of course it was rigged, how else could we make a creative announcement to the children that they are going to be big brothers and a big sister?

It took them a while to understand what we were talking about... but in the end the thoughts sank in. We had 2 requests for a girl and one undecided.

Vapo on the - feet

That is right. I tried it. My coughing has become so horrible. I heard this rumor and I tried it. End result for me: didn't work (even though a lot of people swear by it). It did, however, make my feet very soft and supple.

SO- I have been officially sick for over a week. This sucks monkey. Every time I think I'm feeling better I take a turn for the worst. Honestly at this point, I think that I am on the road to recovery.

ANYWAY, what are your new year resolutions? Mine is simply to get over this cold. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to accomplish it. I don't normally make resolutions, but I found this one is worth it.
