got the new machine going yesterday and man is it NICE! AND QUIET! and Brian is in love with it.....ACK
THAT BOY...I swear he is a pretty good lil boy, but he is just too darn big for his own good...is totally amazing what he can and can't reach....is rather annoying when ya go to the potty and he brings you a nono item you swore he couldn't reach
I am going to need a padded room soon
oh an up note, my sister is coming down from Alaska next week!!! she will get in Seattle tues and the folks are going to go pick her up.....we will be in Fri am so I get to see her and the kids!!!
AND....I found out she is preg
I am happy for her, really...but dammit I want to be preg too!!! dunno why but I have known for awhile...just a weird feeling (and here my ex thought HE was psychic!! ), but I also think I should follow soon so hey, I just need some patience, right?
and had a rather weird conversation the other day (not sure it was yesterday or day before *sigh* guess I need more sleep )...my msn sounds off and it was my ex...yeah, the afore mentioned pycho, er psychic...found out a guy that grad the year behind me in high school was a marine, and he was killed in the line of duty....he wanted to talk about it, and so we talked....was very very strange...and I talked to Angi and we had a great time not only poking fun at him but walking down memory lane ( telling secrets! ) man I got a few miles out of THAT one
so anyway.....am working my brains out trying to get the log cabin quilt figured out, laid out so I can put it together.....is looking really good too...I can't wait! AND, Mark was at least semi interested today so maybe a lil is in store for me, ya never know
oh yeah, and the house in WA? remember that one? the well seems to be happy now, and the ac will be fixed very very soon...great news and both are supposed to be fixed before we get home
someone is busy stressing over EVERYTHING upstairs and "wasn't" tired and well, altho I MIGHT have been able to go to sleep, it was very unlikely with the tv on, even if he DID turn it down really low
so I got up and started working on the list of things to do before we head home.....made a dent in it too, and am about to go mop the kitchen floor
I might beat him with the swiffer thing when I am done....at least I would feel better......and then the physical exsertion might put me to sleep
and I am tired, just not sleepy, kwim? what is it with men lately? head just lost somewhere in the nether regions?
and I COULD shoot him...but I don't want to pay the consequences later ....there would be so many, not to mention the jail time...altho I get a woman judge and tell her what he is doing and she would let me off I am sure
okokok, off the mop the floor...then to bed so I can share my awakeness with him....***...I hate it when he gets this way
if they are made from the same mold we should shoot them both maybe?
honestly I was trying my best to be in a bright and cheery mood, and with the 9 hr trip (if we are lucky) in SEPARATE vehicles looming, it is WORK to be bright and cheery, altho well worth the trip home!
at least he appologised this am...I said nothing...am going to hold out for too I think, but I would be right shocked if I got ANY...said "First Off I am sooo sorry for being grumpy"...like he was just grumpy, he was a grumpy ***...and I am handy too, right there to grumpy *** all over...NOT! I am NOT here for you to abuse
no, not actual abuse, he isn't STUPID, ok, mostly not stupid, but not near dumb enough to take a swipe at me, we had that discussion before we got married, and again afterwards when he kicked the chair I was in...I told him that was not acceptable and if he ever did it again I would not only leave, I would take him to the cleaners and that was a first step to actual physical abuse and most likely why his ex and first son were actually afraid of him when he got in one of his moods....he never did anything like that again, not even close...that was 3 almost 4 years ago...think it scared him...that and I told him if he did ever hit me he best not ever go to sleep EVER...damn but I can be quite *****y when I want to be, but that is waaaaay across the line...and then I made him take a break and get out of dodge...he left for an hr or so and as I remember I dropped the microwave on the floor in the ensuing fight a couple days later...silly man thought he could control me by intimidating me...well, bucko, this lil woman can hold her own, bigger or not, I don't get even, ever...don't mess with me!
where on earth did THAT come from? lately tho my temper has been boiling....it did then too and maybe that is where it is from? who knows...we could both use some anger management on occasion, right? and what is with this emote: bonk with a trout?!?!?!
so anyway, got plenty done last night, got plenty of laundry going today, am crossing things off my list right and left...quite satisfying ya know! add a couple tho...return a couple things to Walmart, pay rent before we leave and maybe stop in and look at air conditioning units (BIG sale don't ya know)
Brian was in a pretty good mood for a bit, then started grumping again...so I went in to lay down for him and go assaulted for my troubles...his elbow the chest, got poked in the eye and then pinched and he was back in his crib, and he promptly zonked and hard...ACK...ah well, I didn't want a nap anyway, right...time to bathe the girls...they stink and don't want to be cooped up in the car with them
oh wait, they are going with Mark, hmmmmm..... naw, better not
oh yeah, and we got some walkie talkie things for the separate trip as well....who knows, maybe we will find the truck we are looking for!
ok, maybe not so much THROW, as much as drop...he had bought me a new microwave cuz his old ancient one (older than his son) was DYING...no, not dead, but the damn thing could take forever just to boil water, and there was a def hot spot and cold spot in there...yeah, a microwave with a cold spot...and no turn table, and when it was done nuking it would beep until you got back to it...good Lord it made me wanna pull my hair out when he would ignore it!
so, back to the "short" version...he said we didn't NEED a new micro, that we had WASTED the $ on a new one and I said FINE, WE WILL TAKE IT BACK, hauled it off the stand (almost yanked the cord out) and headed out for the truck...he said put it down...oh my, NOT a good thing to tell me, I said ARE YOU SURE and he said PUT IT DOWN, so...um...I DID...right there...made quite a racket too, which, sadly, was also VERY satisfying
we hadn't been married a yr by then and I think both of us were wondering why the hell we had in the first place......man that first year was KILLER.....him trying to control me, me being stubborn and uncontrollable....he learned right quick not to mention the ex tho....that one got him into sooooooooooo much trouble and I don't think he really knew quite how to handle the consequences...so now, I throw her in HIS face and he is oh so quick to back peddle "I said NOTHING about her!!!!"
hey, works for me! and no, I most likely won't ever do that one again....we were able to return it....and eventually he DID get me a different one a few years down the road....we had a major "discussion" before I let him bring it in the house tho, and he hinted once that the old one still worked and I told him I would take it back....haven't heard word ONE after that
poor boy wasn't exactly sure what he was getting into with the younger wife, was he
well, the wicked wench of the west showed up last night....things at home are....homey...I love being at home, altho there are large problems. as in water, or the lack of it...gonna be a spendy fix, and my lawn is basically dead...fun...looks nasty...THAT part was depressing, but not enough to make me wanna go back...got to spend time with my sister and neice and nephew and folks and and and...has been pretty darn good...good sex too (until last night) and plenty of it!
have lots to say, and hope to have pics soon...
and Kym, you are going to HATE ME!!! but not til we get home....am feeling pretty lucky to have access to the puter today, not sure I will make it back later, but will make a shot! having a great time and miss preg.org (when I have time!)
getting tons of stuff done too, and got out on the watercraft...is HOT here and I LOVE IT!!! no wind, no thunder boomers, just hot hot hot...and the house is cool cool cool...new ac is working FANTASTIC!! it will refridge us if we aren't careful!
ok, Mom has cake......with freash strawberries
and Kym, it is charcoal..is gorgeous, and we got a steal of a deal!!
well, I do actually have a few things to write today.....has been a busy weekend...ok, not so busy physically, but sewing wise it has been! (copied from Jan and Sewing board)
it got started when we moved 3 yrs ago, and I have worked on it off and on in the winter (mostly)...but when we moved up here I had a chance to really work at it and I wanted it done (the top) before I finished off a wall hanging
am calling it my Desert Wind (brown is ground, blue is sky, wind is from the pin wheel look)...there are two different possibilies on how to join them (two pics) and I am starting to heavily lean to the darker one
the Darker one
the Lighter one
oh yeah, and here is the "block"...is 9 log cabin blocks, one all neutral
anyway, I am very very excited about it getting so close to done! and is looking really good as well, I was a bit worried when I added the 2 extra strips but it turned out very well in the end
and been feuding with Mark off and on as well...my normally very thoughtful and considerate dh turned into a thoughtless *** Fri am...he usually lets me sleep in a day or two (HEAVEN) but for some reason that was not the case...which is FINE...honestly, I don't mind if he wants me to get up...but he kept letting Brian come up and get into things...so just as I am dozing off......he wakes me up...not bad unless you have spent most of the week getting up 1-4 times a night cuz he is teething and I am not an easy person to get along with when I am THAT tired....I got up fighting mad, and he proceeds to take my head off...ah well, is bound to happen I guess...he was just in a nasty mood and so was I...guess is wearing itself out...think a big part of his problem was the $ spend on an ac Fri cuz it is pretty darn hot outside
been fighting a very nasty near migrane headache as well, and yesterday my shoulders were killing me from all day at the sewing machine...he did rub my shoulders for me, but still got the headache...today hasn't been much better.....I need to get out and walk or excersise anyway and I have NO motivation to do so....at least I have it under sorta control and I am not stuck in a dark room attempting to kill anyone that drops a pin yet
and Mark made one of those "good thing you are sitting down" comments this morning.....about how we could move if we could find somewhere when we got home.....I was so I actually made him repeat it and asked him if he was serious, repeated it myself and he said "yeah, been moved enough lately another one would be fine!"
did I mention it was a good thing I was sitting down
not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth......just start watching real estate I guess....am still sitting down too.....I just can't believe he said it!
so anyway...the WA house is going just fine, the ID house is still nice...the weather here is still weird, but doable...my son is a weed
oh yeah, and found out that I DO have a digi camera and it DOES work w/o getting more software...things are looking up!
now, if I can just get pregnant......hmmmmmmmmm
guess I should make NICER, right? no better cure for a headache, right?
