got out today to Walmart how fun spent way too much, had to transfer $ as well (also because of Thanksgiving food and Christmas spending) GEEZ!
ah well, feeling better anyway.....am feeling a LITTLE back to my natural Sheera state...saw a damn mouse run across the floor, and instead of deafening the damn thing, I just watched it...TODAY, it honestly didn't bother me THAT much...I knew I couldn't catch it either...so I flipped up the recliner on the couch and VOILA! Prissy (the one that ALWAYS catch and releases) brought it out
dropped it on the floor...I wacked it with the shoe...no shreiking, no nausea, no urge to run, hair streaming, boy in tow, screaming like a mad woman into the night, sans the coat!!
feeling pretty DARN good about it too even threw the body in the trash, got the groceries put away, braved the crowds...
oh yeah, and had 2 cans of Dr Pepper this am
*SIGH* I know, I really shouldn't but OMG they were SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD
I won't tomorrow...I guess...man I miss those things
it is 3 bleeping 30 in the am....my barometer ankles are going off, I am about to gnaw my leg off...isn't being preg fun??? been awake since about 3, altho Brian is sleeping fairly well in the bed (NOT the crib) and has been since 11 when I went in there to crash with him...ya know, I have a perfectly good bed of my own son, with a sleeping mate that doesn't periodically assault me or commandeer MY pillows, asleep or not!
wish I was in it....well, better go find something to eat of I MIGHT actually have to chew on a limb....and my splitting head...ack...only 6 more months....my new chant
amazing what a lil sleep can do for a body!! last night he was only up once, and night before he slept thru, all the way, AND slept in til 9
dang that felt good
and have one more gift to get and I am all done...gonna be a gift cert so is just a matter of picking it up....I am jazzed about being DONE....even got Brian's gifts last night..more mega block sets, one with a choo cho and one set with tracks.....OH BOY...and the set has a box of its own and that is SO important (yeah, he is learning to clean things up, like it or not)
and G-ma reaffirmed she is getting him that neato toy box.....got his room cleaned out, the too small clothes put away...etc etc...it looks pretty good in there too
and my Dad is back from Cincinati? Minasota? wherever it was he went, he is home, and both he and Mom are rather happy about it...now maybe Mom will undingy for us....SHEESH....
thigns are looking up...feeling better, gonna have lunch with Mark....one of the last.....he got the contract with Flour and won't be home for lunch anymore, BUT, he WILL have every other Fri off!!
a trade, one I can live with...not like I have a choice...so I am off to primp for my Mark!
today, I really wanted to go to church, but am afraid we are still contageous, so we stayed home...seems that is where we are getting our colds anyway, and that doesn't thrill me either joy
got some night before last...quick, not too bad, but ON THE OTHER HAND, we have a Hockey Booster Club Christmas dinner tonight and G-ma and G-pa are taking the boy over night...gonna get me some good stuff tonight!!! both of us are getting over our head colds, Brian is back to sleeping thru most of the night, Mark's cold sore is gone (oh man that L-Lysine works like magic!!) no clue what we are going to do for the afternoon maybe I will have to see how adventurous I can get him to be (ya THINK?)
most likely tho, we will be getting some quick cleaning in...
and found out why I wasn't feeling well the last few weeks....seems I am mostly off the caffienne as well....got my orange stash tea and didn't notice the white DECAF in the rest of the black lettering.... hey, is mostly done anyway....dang I do miss my am dr pepper...really really bad...and I do get headaches when I overdo the sugar... *sigh* soooooooo
anyway, Brian is about to go down for his am nap, esp if he doesn't calm down and stop the better go rescue the dog, Mark is too busy playing his hockey game to see the dog is about to be assaulted with her chew stick
well, we went to the hockey christmas banquet...the food was better then normal (altho to be honest I really wanted spuds!!) and at least we didn't have it in some run down weirdo hall from hell....good company too.....was not too bad (but I am asking WHY we go, kwim?)
and G-ma has the boy, I want him back already am I sick or what? had way too much sugar, but OMG it was sooooooooo good (the desert part) I am so stuffed....not all bad for me either....
got a bit of the house cleaned as well...and did some minor grocery shopping done...can't complain too much I guess
oh my, what a night mine went fantastic, and Mark's started out pretty well....but he got next to no sleep...my poor man...he says he can't figure out WHY he didn't sleep could be cuz he is starting a new job today.....he said "NO, AND STOP TRYING TO ANALYZE ME!" but honey...I wasn't...I hit it right on the head...
this would be THE same company he was laid off from 2 yrs ago...this would explain the cold sore, this would explain so very much...I am not analyzing him, I KNOW!
and he is gone already...like a good lil wife, I got up with him and sat with him while he was doing his "wake up" routine, altho I am guessing he is lucky to have had 4 hrs last night...so he left an hr earlier than normal....poor guy, really I feel for him
but not so much that I am not going back to bed....the house is eirily quiet w/o Brian here, but if I show up at Mom's NOW, she might shoot me man I really missed being able to kiss Brian good night and check on him before bed.....on the other hand, last night sure was GOOD!! :P
oh man, I have a getting nastier by the day head cold....it was all but gone and I stopped taking my C and then ds started waking up at night again...PEACHY! so, the sore throat, runny nose and cough are back with a vengence...and to make things OH SO LOVELIER...I am getting a bloody nose, and when I cough or sneeze, I LEAK!! so now, not only am I running to the bathroom cuz I am preg, NOW I run even when I DON'T have to go Crying or Very sad
it can get worse too, and I know it...I actually remembered to take my c and 'natal this am....not likely to forget it for awhile....now, if I could just get back to sleep Rolling Eyes
whine whine, cry cry, wah wah
on the other hand, I AM done with my Christmas shopping, and that really feels good...today I might go look at a treadmill so I can at least get active...Brian was up at 5 again this am, and here it is quarter to 7 and I MIGHT be able to go to sleep, but on the other hand, with the bloody nose..ACK
shopping done, shopping done, shopping done!!!
and we have the company Christmas party tomorrow....oh fun, get to watch everyone get drunk and I can't have any *sigh* dang, I never really want any until I CAN'T have any....I am so bad and for today, I really want to finish another one of Liz's blankets (or 2 or all 3) and at least get started on my sister's present...and get the rest of them wrapped as well...
and, instead of getting home early today (Hanford's wacky schedule) Mark needs to head in to the office today and help get the rest of the stuff he turned over straightened out....poor Dan, he is so swamped now.....am still trying to figure out WHY they sent us to ID, isn't like they didn't have a ****LOAD of stuff here....and now they are getting way behind...
is ok tho, he should have NEXT Fri off and we MIGHT go to Leavonworth...I AM going to head to Wenatchee sometime next week tho, if nothing else to see Alicia and drop some stuff off for her
oh good, looks like the nose has stopped fir the moment.....I should run for bed...hey, maybe I can get a whole whopping 1/2 hr sleep OR, if I get really lucky, more )
man, my us/ is on Monday, and OMG I am going nuts...I so want to see lil Alex, and I so what to know WHAT s/he is!!
and Mark let me sleep in this am....OMG that was wonderful...AND I took a nap, so at least I don't feel like death warmed over anymore...still feel a little crummy, just not downright nasty...dang, I so hate head colds...looks like Brian is feeling better too...and he and Daddy are having a good time as well...
and called on a treadmill as well, will see if I can catch her later, she wasn't there...talked to her Thurs night, but didn't feel well enough to head out there yesterday, so it is most likely gone, but if it isn't, HERE I COME! man I truely need to do SOMETHING...and we can't exactly walk much around here *sigh*
oh yeah, and the company party is tonight....ick, I really don't want to go...I am just a hick and I don't go for non-hick/family outings where I stick out like a sore thumb, altho I don't do too bad when I dress up, still....I have so lil patience for "fakeness", and it gets worse when I am preg....how fun...NOT
ah well, Mark WANTS to go.....no problem.....I become more a homebody when I am preg....is ok....I have a good excuse
ack....still have the head cold from hell...I feel like crap...still have a nasty headache, still coughing, still nasty nose....
BUT, Brian was an angel this am! he slept until 10!! I couldn't believe it! he has NEVER done that before (slept straight thru) NEVER EVER...and he is acting like HE is feeling better, so now maybe I can get over mine!!
and we had a total ball yesterday, great ultrasound, my lil Alexander Christian...he looks so much like his brother is funny! I can't wait til I get to see him in person! on the other hand, I already have a "lumpy" tummy...he usually hangs out verticle just to the left of the belly button...he DOES move so much more than Brian did, and Daddy felt him move yesterday too...
Daddy and G-ma went and finished most or the rest of their Christmas shopping (IE me ) and had Brian while I went and had my nails done...had lunch at Applebee's which wasn't too bad...the nails don't look bad, but not what I had in mind
and I had Mark for the rest of the day too....he took a nap, I hope he isn't coming down with my cold , I got some sewing done, and Liz came over later last night and I got some more of her blankets done and she and I got to talk, and she and Brian and Mark and the girls were having a ball "booing" each other! way too cute!
alas, lunch is finally finished
....I DO have Mark to myself (I hope) Fri, and we might go to Leavonworth, will see...found out a friend of mine's daughter is getting married on Sat, and she wants us to go...we will see, we ALSO have a game Sat and daughter and I were never really close or interested in one another (and I know we are expected to bring a gift)
this would be the same one that still has our second car seat...the one that "wasn't a forever thing" that is turning that way...we GOT that for 2 reasons, first was so Daddy would have a back up car seat if we needed it (and btw, have had many times it would be nice!) AND we got it to reside in G-ma's car...moving those things are a ROYAL pia....I am sorry they can't afford it, I also expect it to come back sometime around May encrusted with lots o crap
it is also going to be Alex's seat when he gets out of his carrier...if I remember correctly that was about 4 mos with Brian....we WERE going to use it FOR Alex but not so sure now, we might not have it!
ack, I am off track.....just tired of this merry go round
food smells good, had better go see if it has cooled off enough to eat....smells REALLY good
