Ok. Definitely pregnant. Quit smoking immediately (I started up when I got all negatives last week and was stressed at work). Called hubby, have to tell parents and work.
I have to work on some assault charges. My sister picked an argument with me on Sunday and pissed me off by knocking my niece over and instead of apologizing to her, she kept yelling at me. My mom is talking about getting her committed, but we're worried that the state will take her daughter away; she's that insane lately. So she walked out of the door and I was yelling at her to apologize to her daughter (she'd knocked her over twice since the original incident) and she slammed the door on me which made me trip and fall down the stairs. So I pulled her hair and told her she needed to apologize to her daughter again. She screamed no and left without her car. I told her that she wasn't driving my niece anywhere and since she lives down the road, both Mom and I figured the walk would help her cool off. She called the cops I guess and some guy who didn't look old enough to shave had to sit there and listen to her rant and rave and take down the pressing charges thing for her. When I was telling the story, he asked if I wanted to press charges and I told him no. I know I shouldn't have pulled her hair, but I was so mad about the child and then the stairs that I lost it for a minute. I'll take my knocks.
I felt like white trash. Plus I am worried about my security clearance. Plus I haven't told Michael because I'm worried he won't forgive her which I've already done because I know she's crazy and just needs help. What do you do in a situation like that? She's literally crazy, but my niece's Dad is a loser when it comes to parenting and I know Louisiana has a very backwards way of doing custody issues to begin with. My niece is really sweet and you can see how she reacts to her mom is not normal. It's almost like she's scared of her. I threatened to call CPS if she didn't clean her house, but she didn't and I really don't want to make that call. I just feel terrible about my niece.
OMG Lillie!!!!! Congrats!!!! I am so happy for you!!!! When is your EDD?
PS - Sorry that your sister is in such a tough place. I hope that you are able to get her the help she needs, and that in the meantime her daughter is able to go somewhere safe.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Thanks. Ok. The base wouldn't give me a blood pregnancy test and the pee one (after an entire morning of drinking lots of water) came back negative. Both me and Michael are freaked out, but my period is very rarely late, I'm nauseous and I did get three positive tests. So what gives with their test? They took blood this morning. If it comes back negative, I'm going to be so upset and feel like I really am losing it. I need a real vacation and Cuba is starting to look real relaxing. I sure would miss Jason.
I hate waiting.
I am 100% pregnant! Monday, June 11, 2012 is what I'm guessing.

Has anyone ever screwed up something really big at work? I hadn't until this past month. I ordered 25 desks and only one of those is going to look right because I didn't notice the shelf and the hutch aren't the same height and a few other minor details that totally deflated my pride. Yuckers. 26,000 and I couldn't get it quite right. No one seems extremely angry, but there is a definite feeling of disappointment everywhere.
And I'm supposed to be planning our holiday party and the guys who said they didn't want to do it () have kind of taken over. I stood firm about a few things in the planning meeting today, but it felt awkward and since I'm overwhelmed anyway, I might let them have it back as long as they don't try to pull plastic tableware or some other crazy crap. I already let them pick a grocery store (local community) as our caterer.
Ds is playing PS3 move. I can't believe I'm letting dh corrupt our poor innocent child like this. But he loves it and it's just capturing sock monkeys. But that's what I said about Blue's Clues for TV, a sip of sweat tea, and a lollipop for a treat and they all turned into often instead of occasional treats. I guess as long as he's a good and healthy kid I should just be happy they have so much fun together.
Worst friend ever. I love my best friend; she's been there forever. The last few years she's been slipping away and with all the excitement of Jason I kind of let it happen. We still talk and see each other when we can, but I don't hear from her for the little things I used to. I went to help her family when her Dad died the weekend before I found out I was pregnant and when I was leaving I told her to call me when she was ready to talk. I should have called her and checked on her instead of just texting. Anyway, she said she might come visit and I'm excited about it. It'd be nice for us to have some time together and her kids are real sweethearts as is her husband.
I'm excited about Halloween stuff this weekend. My house looks so cute on the outside with a cat and smiley face carving, little yard signs in the walkway (ghost, bat, and pumpkin) and a flag that matches the signs perfect. Makes me smile just thinking about it. Jason was Spiderman last time he dressed up and said he was going to be Buzz lightyear this time, but I'm going to try to talk him into being a knight cause that play costume is so cute and I thought I could bring a stick horse with us and a sword Michael got in Germany for him. The thought of the food cooking is making me a little nauseous though. Our base really does holiday's up big and Jason will probably get a toy, supper, and enough candy to make any kid happy.
We went to a Latin festival the week before last and the Renaissance festival last weekend and they were both fun, but a little underwhelming with the things to do. Next weekend we're going on a boat/dinner cruise and my brother is stopping on his way to Florida to babysit. He just quit his job (again!!!) to go work on yachts. He's been obsessing about the gym lately so I'm hoping he's happy doing manual labor. My other brother got to see how my sister is treating his home this past weekend. I'm sure he's not happy because the deal was she kept it clean and took care of it and could live there rent free. He also pays the electric, water, and cable for her so I'm sure it was disappointing to surprise her and see how it's really being treated.
soooo. Taking down Thanksgiving and putting up Christmas. Time is going too fast. We've slowed down on trips and vacations this month and looks like we only have two small ones for December. Think we're going back to Orlando in January as our Christmas presents to each other. Universal Studios is our target this time. We won't be going back to Disney because I can't ride the rides.
All my gifts are bought and wrapped (reusable Kohl's bags from clearance last year) except my husband's nephew. His mother already bought him a ripstick so I need to think of something else. I love Christmas but wish that it was acceptable to get big kids gift cards. Like anyone over the age of 5. Little kids are easier to shop for. Except Jason. My MIL *needs* to spend between 150 and 200 and is asking for ideals. Dh shot down my trampoline idea and laughed at her Nintendo Ds idea, so it's on him now. He better freaking come up with something because I thought the trampoline was adorable. Though MIL said she wanted to buy him a big kid one and that won't fly.
Got the Kindle Fire in this week. It's so cool! We don't often buy new technology so it's really exciting when we do. This will be perfect for the road trips for Jason and me and dh.
Break is over. Off to find the ornaments from last year since dh says we don't need new ones.
Sister has been fine for a while now (pretty much since the crazy post above). Mom has been all over her like white on rice and my brother surprised her with a visit so the house is clean and good to go now. However, I got a phone call this morning that aggravated me to no end at first. She's pregnant. She'd been dating a lawyer with a substance abuse issue that was supposed to be under control, but still worried me. I hadn't talked to her in a while though and she went on to tell me it's her ex-fiance's and he and his family are thrilled. (go figure, they find out before us!). Sigh of relief. I really like this guy and though he's a bit of a partier (alcohol) I think he'll grow up now that he's going to be a parent.
Speaking of being a parent. My child refuses to go straight to bed and I lost it tonight. I slammed the door. I did not yell, didn't seem angry after getting that childish action out of the way, but I did slam the door. He wanted me to know he found a note (tag on his comforter) and wanted me to read it. I proceeded to rip it out and calmly told him that it was unacceptable to not close his eyes when it's time to go to bed and that I loved him. Then got pissy because dh had come in behind me (probably to make sure I hadn't gone nuts) and told my son we weren't mad at him. Speak for yourself. I told Jason Mom was angry that he wasn't going to sleep and I didn't want to hear from him unless he had to potty. Going to go in and give him a kiss as soon as I'm done typing. I really do think he's so cute when he's sleeping...Mother of the year over here.
Work is overwhelming. Usually during the holidays military things slow down a bit because you never know who's taking vacation that may be vital to the process you are working on. Not this December. Lost our secretary and guess who they picked to fill the slot despite me having almost everything else not to do with coding? Me! And they want me to test some new systems someone else finished last week. (thanks @hole for waiting until now). On top of having a lot of work that I just don't feel like doing because it's wet and cold and my bed is so very comfortable. However, I did run a mile on Monday and while that doesn't sound impressive, I was happy with it.
Christmas is over. Halfway through putting everything back in the boxes to go in the attic. Tomorrow I have to work, but when I get home, we'll go through Jason's old toys and box them up too for the next kid; 1 in, 1 out. And I need to go to Wal-Mart and see how much of this stuff can be returned. We got way too much and so did everybody else. Jason is in love with his legos (1600 pieces!) and his Mater Trouble game which I wanted to teach him how to play, but sounds like dh beat me to it. My family is so stressful so I can't wait for our trip to North Carolina to see Michael's. Wish we were flying, but a 10 hour drive isn't that bad and Jason is doing great with the Kindle Fire and I've quit bringing movies. We'll see how it works out.
I have so much to do and no motivation to do it. My floors *have* to get cleaned before we leave and I need to unpack Louisiana clothes and repack NC clothes. At least most of the laundry is done and since we haven't been grocery shopping lately, the fridge doesn't need to be cleaned out.
My life is really awesome, but I'm realizing it's not nearly as exciting as others. I'll take boring any day.
Ok. I really really really don't want to go back to work on Monday. i can't even enjoy this weekend just thinking about it. Just wanted to get that out.
Jason is a natural with soccer. So impressed with the random things he's good at. Like melting my heart right about the same time I wanna beat him. Not that I would, it's just an urge to overcome. Lot's easier when he looks at me with his now hazel eyes (4th color change since birth) and tells me he loves me.
