geez, one has to have sex in order to get pregnant...I should just attack him
*sigh* I know I know, he is still worried about...EVERYTHING...but I still WANT MY HUSBAND
and now, back to our regularly scheduled programing
we are headed back to WA this weekend...oh thrills, another 2 10 hr drives (and maybe more Sees candy! or maybe not.....) I saw a box of it watching American Chopper the other day...Paul Jr was chowing down on it...couldn't see a thing and I said, HEY!!!! I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!! and Mark goes, ya never know and I am like YEAH RIGHT!!
so, when the lid is put back down, guess what it says ....sometimes it is good to be right and so notedly so
so anyway, I gotta go get some packing done, some cleaning done, more laundry, and, of course, change the boy and get him dressed...so we can "assault" the world for the day...oh yeah, and gotta go get a pizza too, guess who has been convinced eating BEFORE we leave is a good thing and he ACTUALLY acknowledged I was RIGHT
again, sometimes.......it feels soooooooooo good
and I didn't even have to say a thing...I just looked at him and nodded and he said, I know I know, you were RIGHT!
oh boy that felt good...NEENER NEENER NEENER!!!
and Kym, I ment what I said....until you can't remember your own name!! she doesn't matter...YOU are the Mama now and YOU need to do what is best for YOUR family...screw her!
wow, what a way to end a mother's day! before bed and then again in the morning...I could get used to this early "rising"
hey, who am I to complain??? it was GOOD!
had a good trip home...got to see my cats (who are getting so fat), my flowers (that are going gang busters and so beautiful ), my friends, my folks, and I didn't have to cook one thing, or wash one load of laundry all weekend
however, today I do ah well, back to life...and for today it is going GREAT! what a way to start a day...need to do this more often
oh now this is fun...it is 6:49 am and I have been up an hour...got up twice last night with the screaming meemee and I am POOPED
and yet, I can't go back to sleep...ain't life grand?
ah well.....just a wild guess, but I am betting the teeth are back with a vengance...oh fun...not sticking my fingers in there unless he shows def signs of cooperation...Mark got bit pretty good last time he wanted to check and with me being this tired.....I think not!
on the better side tho...I have been working on the grape quilt for a friend of mine...looks like it should be finished SOON...need to pester Jules for some tips and tricks later on, but I am so excited...can get started on the sunbonnet sue maybe as soon as next week
willing to guess that with next week tho, will come warmer weather and I will want to be outside more...
oh yeah, it is trying to snow again...have I mentioned lately I hate Idaho with a PASSION! YUCKIE!!!
and Mark is having mega trouble with his tendons again...still all swelled up, and us 9 hrs from the dr's office...get to call the hmo today and see who up here to see, it is killing him...swollen and angry looking (which I didn't realize it was that bad, he hasn't been letting me I think!) so we should have a fun and exciting weekend ahead of us
oh yeah, and I made smothered chicken last night...actually had the chick boobs and saute'd them with onions and garlic powder, then removed the boobs, did a quick saute of the mushrooms, put them over the top with some cheese...OMG that was sooooooooooooooo good! not sure I could do it again tho I rarely manage to NOT overcook them...just managed it yesterday! had it over rice...mmmmmmmm...with a salad...ok, the chicken was REALLY good!
and can you tell I am tired??? still jazzed over stupid chicken...maybe I should try for a quick nap...Brian has been sleeping til 8, if I went in now, I MIGHT get an hour...most likely not, but it doesn't sound like a bad idea.....might just give it a shot
poor Mark, no wonder he hasn't been interested...amazes me he is still walking!
well, Mark has some nasty tendonitis...and he is one moody pia...to top it off, af shows up Sat am VERY early and of course, I am unprepared, had a mess to clean up...NOT a good thing....kinda kills the day entirely...then, of course, being the pbfh that I am, EVERYTHING I do is psycho and I am ATTACKING him...yeah, HIM yelling at ME is MY attacking HIM...bite me dough boy...YOU are going psycho, and until THAT MOMENT I wasn't feeling PSYCHOTIC at all, however, now that you mention it, I am sure I can manage a nice hissy fit ARG!!!
so WWIII is back on....let the squirmishes begin...I am going to start with the next volley, we are having MY comfort food for dinner tonight...chicken a la king...he is ok at best with it...tomorrow will be lasagna but only cuz I don't want my sghetti to go bad...then hamburgers cuz I LIKE THEM, and he can kiss my not quite so lily white, er...bottom (been tanning)
said volley will be accompanied by a few trips to the tannery this week, during which HE can watch the lil terrorist and I can RELAX...
but on to some better news, I am about to finish my first quilt...actually finish it!!! I have plenty of STARTED ones, but nothing finished...I was told I needed to finish a (couple) (translation one) before I start another one
gonna bind it today, so I need to get off here....sides, Mom and Dad will be here this weekend for a day on their way to KS so I probably should clean things up too (not that dirty, but still, gotta make nice for the folks! make them think I am the Goddess I actually am )
Urg…nothing quite as irritating as this charting thing…irritating I tell you
Hey, at least I am DOING it…not that I do it exactly the same time every am…like yesterday, Brian was up 3 times in the night, last time right before I was supposed to temp…UG…so, managed to get an early am nap, took it after that (ok, long nap, took it very late….peachy) but hey, I did take it! haven’t forgot yet…
And then there was this afternoon…went to Joann’s to get a specialty iron (quilting stuff, so I can actually be MORE boring than I already am, ya know ), was rather irritated at the price so I didn’t get one…left the diaper bag in the cart, went two doors down to get Mark, remembered it, went back…all less than 5 mins…it is gone…guess where my wallet is? And the check book? Got the debit card canceled, but that was my ONLY source of cash here and now it is GONE…had to shut off Mark’s too…..how fun is that? So, now I am also stuck at home (no drivers license either) so much for it being a nice town…at least we are headed back this weekend…hopefully we can get new cards by the time we get there…either that or I get to have Liz overnight them to us…peachy…I feel like a total and complete idiot....stupid stupid stupid….*sigh*
So, at least we can save a few bucks…Mark DOES have his credit card, so we should be able to make it home and for the week (ok, 4 days of the week), other than milk…oh fun…maybe we will open an account here, after all we do have checks still…might just go ahead and change banks anyway….the one we have we couldn’t get anyone on the phone, even to cancel the debit…means we had to call Visa to do it…at least I don’t carry credit cards…Mark has those, they get me into trouble
So anyway…oh yeah, and no more ebay either *SIGH*
And I wanted a walking foot at least….will have to see….can’t get that online, I don’t have a name machine, think is a short throw Singer knock off….know where to get my stuff tho…want a new quilting machine (hey, a Whites is on sale at Joanns!!) but don’t NEED one or can really justify one so……will have to see if I can get the other one up here…it is an ancient whites, but, can easily get feet for it!
And, still having thunderstorms here…heard until Weds…whine whine whine
Hey, the officer was kinda cute! Brian thought he was cool too….so many things to touch, so many nono’s…he laughed and said his daughter was the same way…sounds like about the same age…really nice guy, lives just down around the corner…pretty cool I think!
So, that is MY whine fest…better go get something figured out for dinner…maybe I can cajole dinner out…oh wait, how would we pay for it
went out yesterday to get a replacement for the lost diaper bag and wallet...was actually depressing...didn't get the wallet I wanted cuz they no longer had it *sigh*...got a bag, which is cute, but not my old one...I know I know, whine whine whine...just another slap in the face...stupid me leaving the bag behind I chalk it up to stress, so basically it is all Mark's fault, right wrong...oh well
and I got a call today...really nice guy too...two Sun's ago we went to church and they had a guest speaker (I vaguely remember something said the week(s) before)...a really good one too on Creation vs Evolution...I was very much impressed, as was Mark...so impressed that I bought a book and gave for the love offering (what little I had)...they had one of those paper credit card swipe things on it...and on a whim I wrote our ID # on it...I would love to have a chance to sit and talk to him (his name is Mike Riddle), but didn't think much else about it...
until today, when a Jerry called...evidently Mike and his wife had mailed all the slips to their office, it got there this week...did I mention I had everything that was in my wallet canceled? shock of all shocks, it didn't go thru so I can't pay over the phone, I don't have a replacement yet...get to mail him one...peachy
altho I haven't read the book yet, I knew the folks were coming up and that they would really like it, and with them traveling.....would have the time to go over it, so I saved it for them...is on its way to KS (yes, thru all the storms, Dad could always pick the best time to go! )
so anyway, Mark is due at the Dr's, Brian is asleep, and I am bored only cuz I am not working on my list of things to do...I am currently on strike ....just not motivated, altho I NEED to get going...I hate the insane Thurs when I do next to nothing
altho the queen still resides here...so I guess I could go fold something...oh yeah, and the officer that took the report has been driving by off and on...that was nice...IS nice...
I want Sees Candy....ya know, make me fat(ter)...oh yeah, and some really good guac, or even just avacados and tomatoes...mmmmmmmm but that sounds soooooooooo good...and something spicy too...and , I want it all don't I :P
think we are going out to Mexican tonight, I can feed my Black Irish cravings (huh? what does ONE have to do with the other??)...wish I WAS preg, at least I could blame my Spring cravings on SOMETHING...*sigh*
OH HEY! on an up note, Mark's card still works...am terribly afraid of driving w/o my license, but the officer said to tell them my WA # and that it had been stolen, (and I assume, be pretty, flustered, very respectful and polite and possibly flattering) and it most likely won't even be an issue
I haven't driven this cautiously or this good in ages...I hate being good...no one else is *WAH*
BUT on the other hand, yesterday I decided screw it and went out anyway...didn't get into trouble, was GOING to get groceries but Brian fell asleep and I just came home...ah well...going back out today....am INCOGNITO
OH YEAH, and on a different note...sometimes I envy those whose life is interesting enough to need a private journal...on others, it is so refreshing to know I am so boring too...but I just looked at the #'s of who reads this thing, and WOWZA! 900+ who are you all? I know Kym is one, and a few others, but now ya all have my curiosity up! what on earth made you decide to follow my, er...interesting ( :rofl: ) life?
ACK! I need to REMEMBER to uncheck the siggy! GEEZ, one would be led to think I am, like, blonde or somethin!
*sigh* this charting thing can also prove to be a heartbreaker...if I AM preg this month, I am due Feb 19 (I think), if I am not, I am much more likely to be devastated...I mean, after all, I really am watching things, Mark really has been...er...ATTENTIVE , charting and all and according to the chart, we SHOULD HAVE hit it...
yeah yeah, I know, it isn't foolproof (or we wouldn't have ttc 2+ boards)
but still.....EVERYONE has been teasing Mark about a lil girl...I don't even have too anymore
and we had a pretty good weekend...we came home early (Sun night) cuz it is soooooooooooooooo much easier to travel when the grumpasauraus is asleep...and he was showing signs of not being a good traveler, so we got in at around 4 am...YUCK...we rested today, did just about next to nothing...boy did THAT feel good...at this house that is def doable...AND I got a ton of things finished at home...we got all the replacement stuff taken care of from the stolen diaper bag...everyone got to their resp dr's apt...I got quite a bit of the pasture mowed (way more than I thought I could! and had a real blast doing it...pulled a zillion weeds, got my hair permed...went out to lunch at Olive Garden (OMG that was FANTASTIC!), Mark got to spend time with his first son, we had a good dinner with plenty of company and that too was pretty darn good...
got to see Brian's g/f from hockey (merrick, the world's greatest puck bunny j/k) and heard all about her victim, er...love interest...and I TOTALLY condone the age difference :rofl: (she is 21)...she will most likely babysit for us again when we return for the week...
and overall, we had a really good time! we helped Liz move her new furniture as well, and that wasn't TOO bad...when we drove in at 3am Fri morning, we saw ROSES...and not WEED AMONG THEM!!!! she refuses pay...that is ok, I know what I am going to do, she can't resist me
I gotta say, we haven't had that productive/fun a weekend in many many many moons, and it felt GOOD!
and dang, if this is all cuz of that B shot, BRING THEM ON! yowza but they hurt, but I feel sooooooo good! still even...nice
okokok, back to life...gotta figure out SOMETHING for dinner *sigh*
OMG, my sciatic (sp?) nerve is firing off the last couple of days...bad enough today that my knee and ankle aches, AND my stomach is upset...labor was easier to take than this!
and then this storm moves in...could explain the knee and ankle...and it was pretty warm outside today, so I don't understand what it's problems is I just want it to go away already!
at least I got some sleep last night...Brian finally slept thru the night...he has been just barely waking up (enough to cry, but not enough to really wake up)...and then forgot to put the sheets in the dryer so now we wait to go to bed...oh yeah, and Mark has to go to work tomorrow
good news tho, Mom and Dad are here until Sat am when they roll for home...on their way back from KS...and more good news, the ac at the house in WA is working correctly, and the water "problem" Liz had this morning most likely was from too many hoses on so everything is set
can't wait til July......even tho I am really in love with this house, I am still not at all impressed with the area....ah well....got to show the neighbor lady my flowers...I do have pics to post as soon as I upload them.....I should do that tomorrow, after all, I sorta have someone to watch Brian for a few! oh yeah, and gotta go pick up the pics from Sears as well...fun fun fun
so, on the heels of "good news" comes bad...no, the ac isn't working on a regular basis...and no the water still isn't working...had a really good conversation with Liz's Mom tho, and found a partner in crime in getting her paid one way or another
and since Dad is home, he is supposed to go check it out...will see if he has time...I might head home alone with Brian and the dogs (oh yeah, that'll be fun, NOT) but gonna wait and see what happens...the ac guy is supposed to call me later on today (will see about that one), and Mom as well
had a pretty laid back weekend after the folks went home...they made it back safe and sound, and good they didn't stay longer...af is due soon and I am decending into my normal hormonal hell...tested 10 dpo and either was tooooo early or more likely I am not preg...it was bfn...
and I am going to kill something...probably one of the dogs, they are already on my sh!t list...one for being a pia the other for licking the carpet (not bad until it turns to chewing)...Brian brought me Cooper (aka booboo) and I started to cry...blamo...and I am breaking out...too much fun, I hate af, wish it were just over at this point...I feel like a bleeping teenager...
oh yeah, and to top things off, from my Jan post:
ug...more Monday fun...been qwest customers for not quite two years and that is about 6 months way too long...they have been screwing with us ever since Jan/Feb and I won't have any more of it...never been late on a payment, and got it and sent it and now they are telling us it is late...BULL PUCKY...and she tells me there is NO grace period, and I told HER that if you shut it off we will be moving elsewhere and that a customer based service shouldn't be using AUTOMATED calling, and then when the rep answers the phone from the "press 0" said rep knows NOTHING about why I got a bleeping autocall...and how we have had nothing but problems, how we have overages cuz I was TOLD to shut off my no-roaming feature, and then told not ALL roaming was non-chargable and and and and and that the check had been sent out Fri or Sat
and she said I wasn't letting her finish...so I said, ok, you said there was NO grace period, ARE YOU GOING TO SHUT OFF MY PHONE? and she said, um...I don't know, I can only enter in what you told me
so I called Mark, he put the bill in probably Sat after mail came and it would have went out today (as far as he can remember)
I don't care...we want out of qwest...is about time anyway
so, I MIGHT have my cell shut off, and qwest MIGHT be under the silly impression I would be at all inclined to pay early termination fees... :rofl:
this is just pathetic...I hate qwest...have been screwed enough by them, NEVER TOUCH QWEST!! they don't even have very competitive plans...THEY SUCKETH!
anyone have any suggestions? they have to have coverage in MT AND in WA and in ID (at least for now)...qwest has shut off their MT coverage...was why we went with them in the first place :angry:
*sigh* I liked it so much better when I really didn't have anything that unusual to post
oh yeah, and Brian has at least 3 more teeth coming in...I am going on strike...as soon as I can
well, I am not preg...af made her appearance this am and this is just pretty damn depressing...did everything right, and I am not going to chart one more f'ing thing...I HATE charting...with a PASSION
never remember, it is all over the place even when I DO remember to take it on time....even Mark was helpful this month
so, I am on a diet, looking for a treadmill, gonna road trip today if I can (Brian permitting)...got some good snuggle time in with him...with his room being painted his blinds are down and it was pretty bright in there...he was twitching like mad, and when I shut his window his eyes popped open so I picked him up and he did the limp noodle thing so I took him to bed with me, hoping to be able go back to sleep myself...I have been so extremely tired I was very much hoping this was it...but no, just me , no such luck...we snuggled for a bit and I made him all comfy in our bed and he is crashed happily...he likes our bed (too bad the lil bugger assault sleeps, he could sleep with us if he didn't!)
so, on the agenda for today is to check the paint in the garage (to finish his room), look around for a reasonable ( ) treadmill and roadtrip...maybe paint a lil, Brian dependant
and thinking of stepping down as host, every board I host is dead or dying...don't need that, someone else who is better could do so much more I am sure
