I didn't have time to finish bolding the above post, but lets say most of it is SO true, lol. We all really hate North Jersey, lol! They really aren't even a part of our state, we are our own little world. I once had a friend who dated a girl from North J and boy did we bust his balls terrible. LOL, we called him a traitor & told him he'd be dirty for life, lol! I must say Wildwood & South Street were my biggest hang outs as a kid, and I too have slept behind a WaWa once, and I know the location of about twenty. LOL! A wawa is the only convience store we have in my little town I remember when they were building it in lik 98 it was SO huge, lol. Everybody was so excited that now we didn't have to drive twenty minutes away for food.
Anyway, off to the task at hand.....
I have slept at my dads the past two nights, Mol wanted to make homemade cookies & decorate the tree. I sold Two of my auctions w/ BIN on ebay and the other two had high bidders! Yay!! I am going to take pictures Tues. for a lot of Em's toys, a gap scarf & glove, stephens DVD player and a few other things. I am going to post the HUGE lot of her clothes after christmas. I have to get one dress out tomorrow morning since its needed for christmas. I am going to have to do that before work, which means now I have to get up earlier, but I guess its ok.
Anyway the thought of christmas is SO stressing me out. Christmas eve I have to go to Stephen's aunt, then my cousin, then back to my dads to lay out cookies & milk (and give my dad directions on how to put the presents under the tree, as he has never done it before) then back to DE. Then christmas day I have to open w/ S & Em, then go to my dads to open with Mol, Meg, Elissa, Dad, Emma & me, then off to S's parents to open with his parents, sister, em, me & Him, THEN I have to go back to DE & get em & I ready go to my dads, drive all the way to NE philly (about twenty minutes away) go to my cousins then my grams ALL This WITHOUT stephen. It just seems way to much for me. Way way to much. I am going to start praying now that Em will be good & calm all day because if not I may just shoot myself. I am going to miss him so much doing all this stuff without him. Anyway, my child is playing with markers and I left the room to write this so we all know what I'll see when I go back in
LOL! I tried to get him to play a game via email and this is what I recieved:

Where the **** did you hear this **** from? I'm not playing this stupid *** game, I like the way you think you know everything but you don't even come close, I like the way you have to cover your eyes at night because your like a bat and need total darkness, I like how Emma is the most important person in your life and your a perfect mother especially for the age of 18, I like how your a horrible driver and are always swurving on the road, I like how you are family oriented and always wanting to do things together but I'm always not. What I hate is the way you don't take school seriously, How you call the house a thousand times when your at work, get mad over the smallest **** like it is the end of the world.
I went to the gyn for my check-up. My IUD is gone. I have an ultrasound monday. They drew blood today, I haven't had my period for 3 months. I may be pregnant. Probably. The blood work (hopefully) will be back tomorrow. If not it will be back monday AM. I may go buy a test tonight. I am freaking the **** out. Of course this would happen to me because god hates me
Its probably in my ****ing uterus. It didnt fall out, I'd notice that right? They called two other Drs. in. They couldnt find the strings anywhere and they couldnt even FEEL the hardness of where the IUD should be. Can you ****ing believe this ****?? The Ultrasound isn't to see if I am pregnant its to check for the 'placement' of the IUD. Well, Its obviously ****ing not placed anywhere right. Now my anger is kicking in. I am not telling a goddamn soul, well other then the freaking thousands of people who can read this. S was very nice & understanding, I thought he was going to flip. Anyway I'll know for sure monday. Kym, I am going nuts.
Today was a good day, I am so freaking about the ultrasound Monday. I am not one for surgery at all, I have NEVER had surgery for anything. I highly doubt I'll need surgery though. Hopefully once they locate it they'll be able to use their hands. I am going to get the US tech to print out the little pictures like they do for babies so I can come and post them Also the blood test results will be back tomorrow morn, but I am almost positive they will be negative for pregnancy. BUT then what does scare me is WHY haven't I had a period since Oct?? I hope this IUD didn't really **** things up, you know?? I knew I should have gotten it looked at earlier but I was to lazy & busy and didn't feel like
driving all the way there. look what it got me.
Anyway S was in a great mood today, and so was I . I read my new book while he played Xbox. I found a new serial killer enclopedia(sp?) on sale at Borders for $19.99. I'm on page 122 out of 400 and some but I need to take a break for a while as it has been giving me nightmares again. That's what leads me to believe even if I did really *try* to pursue a career in the field of Criminal psychology I couldn't handle it. The child killers are what gets to me, In all honesty the others don't bother me *too* bad, but the child killers make my blood crawl and makes me paranoid. S said I needed to put it down for a week or so, I agree. I made Em sleep in bed with us last night out of pure fear, that isn't good.
Anyway, on to some good and not so morbid topics I cut Em's hair today, she looks adorable. My Digital camera should be here at the *latest* the 20th, I will be a picture posting maniac.
S & I were talking and if it does turn out the IUD has caused some type of damage we will start TTC right away. This will definitely be our last as S & I are both positive we don't want anymore then 2. He will get snipped. I'm so scared I am going to go to the US alone and she's going to tell me theres a little baby in there, lol! S said all this talking of having another is making him "want another baby a little" lol. With his upcoming raise we could definitely afford another child, but school is my main focus. My dad watches Em when I have school and there is no way in hell he will watch another baby. No way. So that would be real difficult and I am sure I'd have to quit my job which I LOVE! I couldn't imagine not seeing little Meggy, Well we will see.
I got some horrible news Thurs. My older sisters mother, Faye (whom I am closer with then my own mother) has bladder cancer. They did a full hysterectomy because of Endometriocancer(sp?) and found spots on the bladder, its really devastating So saying a little prayer for her would be wonderful.
Life has been good, I seem to have more energy which is great! I still want to see Meet the fockers. OH YEA, lol, Guess what my genius SO wants to do. Starting this Monday he wants to work OT daily for the next two weeks (even days off). OT is a 16hour shift so I said fine, but he wants to do it so he can get $4,000 pay check (after taxes) which would be nice we could finally get our bedroom furniture AND put a nice amount away for bills so we could keep more money out of each check as play money. Hmm, Maybe. I told him as long as everything turns out *semi* OK Monday and I don't need surgery then he can do as he pleases and I won't complain.
I need two new tires on my car, UGH. lol. Anyway I have our stupid car DVD player up on ebay for $1,250 hopefully someone will buy it this time. All the inquires I seem to get our international, I dont care now, I just want it out of our house. Well, I need to go make em for dinner & I. Now she insists I sit at her little tikes table and eat with her, lol. Its cute, but my *** is getting a little to big for that seat.
