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 :roll:

I am going to need a padded room soon :googly:

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 :cry:

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!! ROFL ), but I also think I should follow soon so hey, I just need some patience, right? :roll:

and had a rather weird conversation the other day (not sure it was yesterday or day before *sigh* guess I need more sleep :roll: )...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 ( :nono: 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 :sex: 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 :party:

I can't wait.....watercraft here we come!

*SIGH* it is 12:15 and I can't sleep...why? :roll:

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 :nono: ....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 ROFL

okokok, off the mop the floor...then to bed so I can share my awakeness with him....ASS...I hate it when he gets this way :angry4:

if they are made from the same mold we should shoot them both maybe? :angry4:

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 :sex: 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 ASS...and I am handy too, right there to grumpy ass 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 bitchy 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? :question: who knows...we could both use some anger management on occasion, right? and what is with this emote: :trout2: bonk with a trout?!?!?! :roll:

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..... :twisted: 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 Wink

poor boy wasn't exactly sure what he was getting into with the younger wife, was he ROFL

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 Wink

and been feuding with Mark off and on as well...my normally very thoughtful and considerate dh turned into a thoughtless ass 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 :angry4: 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 :shock: 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 :o :shock:

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?

OMG, I just tried a recipe for Chicken Scampi per Olive Garden style and guess what, IT TASTED LIKE OLIVE GARDEN! OMG it was soooooooooo good....Mark and I both ate way too much...down to the breadsticks (but not the salad)...went to the farmers Market this am and got fresh sweet bell peppers and think that made all the difference.... :shock: I gotta say I have no idea HOW I did it, but it was GOOD!

nothing else really new...still being stalked by some of my yahoo theif's buddies....tried sic'ing my ex bf on them (they would be right up his alley)...not sure what he will do, but hey, may as well at least put his ...um...talents to work...still not sure why I am talking to him...to be honest I feel so very sorry for him...I have everything he never will...great spouse, wonderful child, good extended family...and STUFF...and it looks like we will last the rest of our lives too....ex is in this silly no kidding club...no surprise...just wonder sometimes what I saw in him in the first place...guess I am still hoping he will say something like how he was wrong the way he treated me but last I checked hell hasn't frozen over :roll: and it shouldn't matter to me anyway...

sides, I am fat and happy now...*sigh* guess he is one of my unfinished projects that I wish I could finish....nonono :nono: not in a relationship...I just notice sometimes how lonely he is....he was a "fixer upper" type relationship and on occasion it really bugs me when the bigger projects aren't finished...he COULD have made someone ELSE a good mate...personally I would kill him....damn he could make me so angry....I imagine it won't take him long and he will good and piss me off again and I will ignore him for another couple years.....it gets longer every time....he was a really good friend at one point...we NEVER should have gone any farther...

hindsight is almost always 20/20...too bad I didn't have foresight

oh yeah, I DO have more news! Brian has a thing with Daddy's and Momm'y's crest powered toothbrushes...was brushing his teeth and he was opening wide...MORE TEETH! and, ARG, looks like his canine's are coming in...no WONDER he has been in a nasty mood! he has four on top AND bottom now, 4 premolars and looks like more on the way....I knew he was either teething or growing...he isn't sleeping well either...FUN...NOT

on the other hand, he is growing up so very fast.....got him a new book by Sandra Boynton...I LOVE LOVE LOVE her books! got him "Horns to Toes, and in between" and "Moo Baa LaLaLa"...he makes quite a palethera of barn sounds too...he also got a barn mega block set (he will occasionally yeehaw too! ROFL ) and he got some new mega building equip toys...that boy is spoiled, and we know it!

isn't that what you do with first children?? anyway, for the most part he is getting so much fun to play with...tonight the three of us were playing in the kitchen...I grabbed his "prefered" binky and stuck it in my mouth and he TOTALLY abandoned Daddy (HEY!) and RAN to me! Lol I swooped him up and plucked the back up out of his mouth as he assaulted me to get the one he wanted...I put it in my mouth, Dad took it with his mouth, Brian squeeled and dropped the "prefered" binky and started to laugh as Daddy (no hands) passed it to Brian...we did that for a few rounds (all three of us giggling like ...well...small children!) then we did some dip to Dad and after a bit he wanted down.....

he is now comfortably jamjam'd and playing with his barn set and new tactrrr, also tac or ta for short :doh:

oh my, isn't being a Mommy the BEST thing in the world....Mommy to a wonderful and smart boy, wife to my best friend...it just doesn't get that much better than this!

oh yeah....sometimes I still surprise and delight Mark just doing the simplest things....I love that man...he asked me if I wanted to shower with him and I jumped up and said "OH YEAH"...no, not :sex:, just a good shower, back scrub, touchy feely kind of thing

sex wouldn't have been refused, but it didn't end up there...we cuddled up in bed and talked for a lil afterwards

he was overly pleased when I jumped up like that...sadly he never had that in his first marriage that lasted 20 yrs...how can you marry someone you AREN'T ever that interested in??? I am glad I can surprise him like that (and it tickled him to pieces), but in a way that is sad.....makes me feel pretty darn good too...I have a great dh, and altho I still want to kill him now and then, I know that is just life...I wouldn't trade him for ANYTHING

yeah, I know he is a good man, yeah I do love him, but that doesn't mean I don't want to visit some violence on him when he is being STUPID :angry4:

I mean, what kind of man CONTINUES to be an ass and provoke a wanna be pregnant woman who is pms-ing and mourning the arrival of af? :banghead: and to boot, I FEEL NASTY! did some plumbing Fri and hurt from that, and haven't felt that good all week...of course, neither is he but hey MORON, that is why I told you to call the dr TWO WEEKS AGO :doh: his tendonitis is still acting up and there are things the dr can do

oh yeah, he SAID he is going to call the dr tomorrow from work

and he explodes this am about bills coming in and how he has been having to pay them...to which I responded no you haven't, I HAVE...he said no YOU haven't been, I have! so I SHOULD have asked if he had paid the bill, why was the last check in my handwriting and with MY signature? hmmmm? and why are there several OTHER bills in my handwritting in the checkbook and NOT his??? :shootself: :dry: :paddle:

I HATE it when he does this...yeah, there seems to be a major outpouring of $$ because of the HOUSE not ME...I might just shoot him...altho I am sure the state of ID would rather I not do it here, I am sure it would make me feel better :pissed:

wel, quite a week...OMG it was PACKED! we went to MT to see Mark's brother Phil and decided to leave a day early...it was nice to meet and greet (I hadn't before), see and be seen...all 4 of them were there too and we had a pretty good time...the first night we stayed in a...um...nasty icky smelly all but downright scary no-tell motel...we ALMOST had another arguement, but I decided to take the "high road" and just let him pay for his mistake

and he did...we couldn't sleep much on the bed...being most likely from the turn of the centurn and rock hard neither of us did...we changed motels the next night and got one of THE best matresses (in a motel) that we have slept on so far

and it was clean, closer to the folks, not scary, and in general pretty darn nice!ah the adventure of it all

and Fri am we are going to head out and Mark announces we should just go home...as in home in WA instead of ID...that way I don't have to drive both ways alone with Brian......aaawwwwwww....the drive went well, Brian was a really good sport and it was a generally nice drive...nice and HOT HOT HOT in WA too and I gotta say, I don't mind the heat at all...he stayed the til Sun am and had to be back to work Mon so he went back...I stayed at home (he took his lil sports car, I had the truck :nono: on the other way around! I LOVE MY TRUCK!)

things got pretty insane from the moment we got there...Sat we got a some things done around the house...my housesitter, as usual, had done WAY too much (we called her on the way there)...house was clean, and she had been weeding things all over....she even went after the lilac bed, something we RARELY mess with...and a few more around the flower bed in front and side of the garage...left the morning glories but hey, she didn't know we didn't want em! so Mark left and I had a lunch apt with Brian's "girlfriend" (babysitter from hockey) and we had a really good time...I ran a few errands and back to home to play with the boy and wait for a good nap to go pull yet more weeds etc etc....had talked to my Uncle etc and decided to start trying to put up the play groudn set thing we have...BIG BIG mistake, but at least part of it is up...he and one of my cousins did lots more weeding and recleared the rose bed Liz had done a month earlier....I had also hired a friend of mine's nephew (who stays with her) to come help me and man that kid works more than most men! what a great kid, I can't say enough about him...and at 15 no less :shock:

anyway, he and I were digging and setting the posts and getting things mapped out (we mapped wrong but ok, fine, it didn't really matter at all)

so nwo we have this towering thing with NO attachments, I am slightly burnt...oh yeah, adn we put more fabric and bakr down and if he can get a ride out back to our place I will put him back to work even w/o us being there...that would be a great surprise for Mark...he would be so thrilled

and I really missed Mark...so did Brian, but overall we were pretty busy...he missed us too and it was actually sorta nice to get back...okokok, the 9 or so hr drive with Brian got a LITTLE trying every now and then but I made good time...actually very good time...I am a little burnt, but overall I really enjoy being home....I hated coming back to ID but since Mark was here it was a LITTLE easier to do....I very much wanted to be with him, I just much prefer to be WITH him in WA...

so, when I have more time, maybe I will post more...Brian is picking up words pretty quick now...his most new one is teeto...anyone want to guess what he snacked on on our way here Lol

too cute....but, he didn't sleep well again last night....*sigh* he did the entire in WA...I know, we should just GO HOME! *SIGH* and he is now up and ready to get out of his crib...better go "rescue" him before it becomes a tragedy!

oh my...we are going to have quite a dinner today....bbq hamburgers, with corn on the cob, bacon, guacamole, onions and shrooms, and a fruit thing I picked up today! smells FANTASTIC!

got quite a hug and plenty of attention from Mark when he saw what all was on the menu....man I am going nuts smelling it!

had a really good couple of days...last night Brian slept thru the night last night (at last!) and Mark let me sleep in this morning, AND I WAS ABLE TOO!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

I feel pretty darn good too...I have some EXTREMELY bad wanderlust and want to go SOMEWHERE, but for now, dinner it is! oh man I can smell it downstairs...I hope it is done SOON!

oh my...something I wanted in here...yesterday am I half reclining on the sofa (is a SM sofa, I am too tall to do too much more!) and Brian walks over and tries to climb up...so I "assist" and he gives me repeated kisses (darn near broke my nose, but OMG it was so cute!!) and then snuggles into my neck for a "hug" and starts to rub my back! talk about melt...we snuggled on the couch for a good 30 seconds or so before he was off and running, but he is turning into such a snuggle bug...he also will give eskimo kisses (my teaching) and esp when he is tired he will let you really cuddle up with him....more with Mark than me, :shrug: but he IS a Daddy's boy

and the words are coming so fast now...we have a real defined doggie, Daddy, Mama and baby that come out right, and Beebee (binky) that is evolving pretty quick, beeas (please), a thank you that ever changes but the you is there...says woof, baa, moo, bock bock, lie (light) mumum (num nums), kakr (cracker), teeto (Cheeto) said milk a few times instead of signing it, tootoo (computer), nana (nono), door. truck, car, BIG truck, bye bye, airplane, a version of cookie, helicopter, ball, tickle, bed, HI!...and they are coming faster and faster.....he is on the verge of COMMUNICATING! he is getting so much fun...he loves to play WITH us now too, not just assault whoever is near...he also is starting to love on Katie (dog) altho more often than not she DOES get assaulted!

and for the most part he goes down to sleep with minimal complaint....he is also going back to being my sweet boy, altho into quite a bit more now, he is throwing less tantrums (how long THIS will last I don't know)...he loves to "fly" thru the house (just call him a swept wing jet) making a "shshshshsh" sound followed by his normal shrieking, or he can do the Daddy thing (also shrieking, deafening dear ol Dad in one ear!)

and even tho I am not sleeping so well, life is still pretty grand...gotta say it is pretty fantastic watching him grow up...

got this in the mail from dh today RIGHT BEFORE he left for home:

Well,

Got semi-official notice that there may not be much more for me to do here.... unless they want to move me on to other stuff........ the manager I work for will be asking Lisa if there is anything for me to move on to.... think they will be keeping Ercle and excessing me..... so our next trip to Washington may be with trailer full of extra stuff going home ! !

Mark E

I SHOULD be excited, but all I can think is NONONO :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono:

the amount of work I would need to do between here and there is astounding and we HAVE to give notice on the house! :shock: I AM NOT PREPARED FOR THIS! (altho, I really DO want to go home!)

and I really don't believe it will happen...is just way too good/bad luck...hmm...time to go crazy Crazy

damn this isn't going to be a good day....at least Brian isn't in a nasty mood...somethign good I guess....I feel...pretty damned depressed...and strung out...and worried...wish I had SOMETHING to help out...alcohol would be an option (no not wasted) if I didn't have Brian to contend with...I truely don't believe we are going home but I want too so very very bad...there is a chance Mark won't have a job to go back too but he has such a nonchelant attitude towards it I am going to kill him if he "forgets" to talk to the boss(s) about it...our housesitter is having problems (health still) and I can't help her...my house needs some tlc but I have no drive to give it anything...I am trying to not think about the HUGE laundry list of things I need to organize or do IF we have to go home this weekend with a load of stuff...oh yeah, and the kicker...I am crying at the drop of a hat...that bitch af is just around the corner and I know it...she is due tomorrow or Fri and I am not handling it at all

God, I liked my "boring" life so much, why on earth did you have to shake it up? yeah, I wanted to move, but could you make my life a LITTLE easier please? the moodiness could go away and that would so help! PLEASE, do SOMETHING! (ZAP ME IF YOU MUST!)

ok, so this is just for you Kym!

so the past weekend wasn't too bad...LONG, but not bad...we got a load of stuff back to WA (including my washer and dryer) and got the majority of it unloaded and put away...at least the part that was going into the house! now we also need to clean out the garage :doh:

got 2 of the mostly dug post holes redug and filled with posts and cement....HEY, I COULD actually hang a gate if I wanted! ROFL no fence, but we got the gate! SHEESH...we also had a bbq at the folks place...gave Dad a gift...with it a note that said we noticed you have been shirking your duties, maybe this will help...in it? a bag of newborn diapers...they about deafened each other when they both noticed the newborn part....oh yeah, and I got a cradle thing too at OUAC...really nice one I might add! Mark wasn't thrilled but we were spatting anyway (I can't wait for the stress level to go back down, he is such a bear when he is stressed) and he said if I wanted it to go ahead...he didn't like it but if I wanted it...WRONG ANSWER, I GOT IT! oh my but it is really pretty!

and got a few things done yesterday...not so much cleaning or packing but cooking and planning...and calling and getting a shut off date set up...today Brian and I are heading to the zoo for the last time (they just opened the monkey exhibit) and this weekend we are headed to Yellowstone...I CAN'T WAIT!

OH YEAH, and we have company coming tomorrow for dinner, so I am also headed to Winco for ribs......YUMMMMMMMYYYYYY

so, other than that...not too much morning sickness but I could eat a cow if I am not careful! I feel almost not preg and it is starting to scare me a lil....overall things are going well I guess...not much to say really

oh yeah, when we were home, we discovered a mouse problem.....we trapped 12 mice! EEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

THAT IS DISGUSTING! cats couldn't get em, but they can now.....NO DECON :nono: just traps...hey, at least they aren't in the house anymore! YUCK

OK, gonna post this is MY journal too as I really REALLY don't wanna loose it, THEN, I am gonna go find it...this is just WAAAAAAAAAAAY too good to pass up!

to whomever wrote it :udawoman:

A speech that should be delivered ~ STOLEN FROM THE ANYTHING BOARD!

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR GEORGE W. BUSH OR JOHN KERRY GIVE THE FOLLOWING SPEECH?

My Fellow Americans:

As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed. Since
congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American
forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now
to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries
which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is
short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are
some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the
worlds nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing
copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those
nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved
during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the
Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this
money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home.

On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we
will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face
of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or
maybe China.

To Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Yo, boys. Work out a peace deal
now. Just note that Camp David is closed. Maybe all of you can go to
Russia for negotiations. They have some great palaces there. Big tables, too. I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many
UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid
parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded
and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You
creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets
tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers, and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are
likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to
try not pissing us off for a change. Mexico is also on List 2. President
Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude
adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions
sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security.

So start doing something with your oil. Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty ---starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens.

Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them be saying, "darn
tootin."

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the
world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on
the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to
eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup
Soccer from America.
To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you and
we won't forget. To the nations on List 2, a final thought. Drop dead.

God bless America.
Thank you and good night.

If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in
English, thank a soldier.

it is 5 fing oclock in the morning, and I have been up AT LEAST half an hour
why the hell would I be up you ask?
hey, I didn't drown her, altho it certainly was tempting
Ali didn't just poop in her kennel, she left a very runny OMG I can't believe she has THAT much bowel in there, stink up the house and make the preg lady with the now queasy tummy consider yaking up her toes, why the hell do we have pets kind of poopy mess in her kennel....

and you think "oh boy, she has a problem"
she sure does, and it is me! and right now drowning her (aka giving her a bath) was on the top of my list
it means she has been into something she shouldn't have, and as bad as that was it also means she won't get more than yogurt today, and a half ration tomorrow

what a perfect way to start my 34th year.....a good pity party on my b-day (yesterday), a cat yowling at 4 something in the am (most likely was starting to gag on the smell as well, Tut and Sock are such tattle tails), stuck at home with at least a acting like he feels better toddler

dang I am tired......and I don't feel the greatest, and I wanna be horny but don't feel good enough too, I want to go somewhere but the move home has seriously dented my budget...I would LOVE to go to the central WA state fair but Mark won't go (without the moaning and groaning I am not going to deal with), so Mom felt guilty and agreed to go with me today or tomorrow cuz I WAS going to go by myself.....she talked me out of it on the idea of 2 adults on 1 toddler are MUCH better odds at a fair than one

so I feel slightly guilty about that one, but really really want to go and Mom doesn't mind going again (she and Dad went yesterday, Dad didn't want to deal with Brian I guess, what a butt)

so, my pity party is getting better I guess.....at least now I have things to do right? :roll:

on an up note, I got two cards from Mark yesterday, and one had my stepson's sig on it...THAT made me feel so much better...at least I am not the total wicked witch of the west anymore

and at least my house smells like bleach (NO I DIDN'T BLEACH ALI) and dog shampoo

dang, I am hungary
no word from Kym either :nono:
oh crap, I forgot to mail out her letter yesterday! :doh:

well, after much needless worry, a few nightmares, and general mayham, we went in yesterday for an u/s to date the preg....WE HAVE A HEARTBEAT!! I saw it flicker by before I got to hear it....I about sucked all the air out of the room....but there it was....lil Alex's heart was beating happily away...like "hi Mom and Dad!"

makes it so real too...got to see the head and the yolk sac, and see the heart beating...was trying my best not to cry...ok, sob, I can cry silently and not screw things up on the u/s.....

I finally slept last night...woke up a couple times to pee but hey, I AM preg, right? and the sugar cravings are subsiding some....not entirely gone, but that is to be expected with my sweet tooth anyway

and got all my new plants planted...looks really good out there right now...got some weeds planted...Mom was here and she watched Brian and threw the ball for the girls while we chatted...is goign to be really interesting if I do have a girl, the girls will have to become the dogs... :roll: such is their fate I guess Lol

and not that hungary for the most part....it sounds/smells really good at the beginning but when it gets there, or right after I eat it.....ACK, not so good...u/s tech said feelign "icky" was a good sign...good, SHE can feel icky...on the other hand, with the hb, I feel better, even when I DO feel icky

ah yes, and I have no motivation to do much of anything...I NEED to do a few things around the house, they have gotten out of hand, like the vacuuming...on the other hand, we have SLOWLY thinned some things down in the house and it isn't near as cluttered as it was, and we have the mouse problem conquered...and the smell :puke: so things are definately looking up...can't complain too much, life is getting back to normal and boring, and back to "normal and boring" is a beautiful thing

man I am having a problem getting motivated to do ANYTHING...I have a few more plants to get into the ground, esp before the weather turns, but I just....really...don't wanna...and I dont WANT to go out much either, and that sometimes includes hockey...that is VERY UNUSUAL for me! I am GOING to get out again today, yesterday was grocery shopping and getting an estimate for the keying on the truck...OMG I just about had a heart attack, it is OVER 1K! thank God for insurance! :shock: no wonder rates are going up...with asses like him, what else are they going to do? SHEESH

and am feeling SOMEWHAT better...was up late last night :nono: and not feeling good this am...Brian was up twice last night, altho Katie wasn't barking...am gonna kill that dog...she doesn't quit waking me up! we have had some really bad nights with her and I am just about ready to rehome her...or for that matter BOTH for the amount of hair in the house right now :angry4: Mark is ALSO supposed to be cleaning the catbox and DOESN'T...always "forgets" and it doesn't overflow the auto-cleaner box, but it won't close either...went to clean it out (stinks too) and the waste box was full :pissed: so I sent him a "thanks" email and hopefully he will get it done TODAY...

dang I need sleep, Mom will be here in about an hr or more....have a haircut at 11 and gotta jet out of here at about 10:30...so much for a long am nap, will settle for a short one

oh yeah, and gonna do some canning today....pears and MAYBE a batch of pomegranite jelly......we will see....is a GREAT Christmas gift!

at least I am starting to feel better...so I can go kick HER butt....ACK :pissed:

there is a village somewhere missing their idiot...I know cuz I have him...he has stolen my dear husband and replaced him with this nasty d!ck head...there, I said it...I feel better...ok, until he wakes up anyway

he didn't sleep well last night, cuz I told him if he was going to toss and turn don't...as in go sleep somewhere else...I am preg and NEED my sleep unless he wants me to turn Bobbit...can we say H O R M O N A L?

CAN WE SAY C L U E L E S S?

so, here is the qotd...my midwife's apt is Mon, no sweat...I asked Mark if he wanted to take half a day off (Mom would have Brian) good chance to spend some "adult" time w/o the boy...heaven forbid we fool around during that time, but that is a different story...he would get to hear the hb, ask/answer any questions midwife has, rat me out if he feels a need too...ya know, be a there-for-his-wife sorta hubby...

he said he didn't have hardly any vacation left, so that was out :cry: but makes sense to me (we ARE trying to head to MT for Thanksgiving if they can't come down, we will see...Mark doesn't fly, MIL doesn't either)....BUT, he says, he can take the time and work over here and there to catch up

was driving or doing something (honestly I don't remember WHAT, just remember this being a sorta passing in the dark in and out conversation)

WELL...so I assume he is going, wouldn't you??? auto body calls and says can we have the truck in Mon am by 7 to fix the keying, so we will drop it off Sun night (works for me!) and we are making arrangements for lunch etc...figured he either would come home and have lunch and return to meet me or just not take lunch and pick me up...makes sense, right?

"I wasn't planning on going, I was just going to have you drop me back off at work and Peggy (coworker, btw) drop me off on her way home"

WHEN THE *BLEEEEEEEEEEEP* DID THAT HAPPEN? he said you never said anything, got all pissed off at me...I said if you can have her pick you up too, take your own lunch...he called me a "controlling" yeah that is a quote on the way to a hockey game! so the battle is on, and if he is going to be nasty, I can be too...and I was...if he is STUPID enough to start a fight with a hormonal woman, I am nasty enough to give him one...

he slept in the other room last night, that so rarely happens, is usually me, he is rarely to be parted with his bed

he is in napping in ds' room now, and ds is on our bed...he had BETTER not be stupid enough to start with me again...I have plenty more ammo if he wants to go again...

and damn it I want sex....LOTS MORE SEX!! guess I will have to take a lover to get it....I certainly am NOT getting it at home....haven't since we got married...OK, since we started HAVING sex...once a month or less is fine with him, 2+ a WEEK is more like it for me...and he gets pissed when I end up having to take care of it myself...well, he can kiss my a$$...and ya know what, am gonna say it.....sorry if I offend someone, but man I could SO USE some good :bj:

I haven't had THAT in years...is ok for him but not for me...I have more acreage he can kiss...

so, if anyone see's his good half running around, PLEASE PLEASE, tell him I miss him terribly...as for the one here, I am gonna STRANGLE HIM

went and looked at a house yesterday...totally wouldn't work for us, BUT, it had such a killer view....I mean, a to DIE for view...but the family room was VERY small, there wasn't a dining room, and the bedrooms were small as well, BUT it did have a rec room downstairs and a huge laundry room and an attached garage.....still, for that amount of $ it would have to fit quite a bit better ACK

ah well, I had a blast doing it...dream a lil dream ya know...might take Mark to go look at it, but kinda doubt it...we haven't killed each other but by now I am sure he also is contemplating it...he didn't go to church yesterday cuz I "always find a reason to piss him off right before church"

always huh?

and still not feeling that great...getting better slowly but still...ACK...and I still have absolutely NO ambition do to ANYTHING.....this place needs some real cleaning....Mom is headed over today and we are SUPPOSED to do something

yeah right.....we will see!

well, for today I guess I am not doing too bad altho I have some....er....running problems...not going far from a bathroom anytime soon :roll: ds and dh had it and by golly they thought they should share...wish they hadn't! had my midwife's apt yesterday and things are looking good altho we didn't get to hear the hb yet, and she moved my edd back 4 days :shock: EEK she did say she could feel my uterous now so at least we are making progress...it isn't like I can't feel it when I lay on my tummy (no, not often at all, altho I do like feeling it!) but bp was just fine and that is a real relief!

other than that things are settling down more with each day closer to the second tri, so I can't complain TOO much (ok, I COULD, but won't)...the headaches aren't as bad, the afternoon icky's aren't as bad either, altho with the sharing going around I feel icky anyway *sigh*

and I also have started my Christmas shopping!...got my Mom pretty much done, Dad isn't far behind, MIL has a gift, not sure what to get FIL...don't have a gift for dh yet, but know what I am going to get him....so that is pretty much done...leaves my sister and family, brother and wife, and some small stuff for friends...the rest is up to dh to get (for his family) altho I will have a blast going to the Christmas bazaars etc in a month Wink

and elections are just around the corner...personally I can't wait for them to be over...yeah, I have high hopes for George, but at this point I just want rid of all the STUPID political ads...they should be banned to only 2 weeks...or how about a week...yeah yeah, that's more like it! to be honest what Kerry could do to the country really worries me, but...I can't control that, I can just vote! I was supposed to be a judge this year but we didn't know we would be home (here in WA) until about a month ago (ya know, a couple weeks after we told them we couldn't be there, things changed :roll: ) but I did tell them next year....have our mail in ballots, need to get at them...we have a bunch of initiatives to vote on as well...did I mention I can't wait for this to be OVER?

other than that, just planting my fall bulbs etc and trying to prepare to start fencing....personally I can't wait to get them up....now if ds will cooperate! he is just about done with his fangs...and he loves the dirt as much as Mama....in fact he also finds it tasty :puke: ah well, he IS a lil boy, right? Mark was complaining that Brian's preg wasn't anything like this, and he is wrong....the difference is it has been shorter (the icky's) this time, I am more tired from chasing/supervising/entertaining the boy! oh yeah, and he is being an ass this time around, but I don't think sharing that with him will make it any better...

ah well, we have been leaving nasty msgs on the fridge in the letters we got for Brian...I need to get more so I can say more...how is that for SILLY?

hey, I don't get even....he knew that way before we got married...

ok, so lately my Mom has been the dingiest person on the planet...I mean, really really dingy...scatter brained TOTALLY and driving me NUTS

she has a "million things to do" and every time I call she isn't doing anything from the million things...WHAT HAPPENED WHILE I WAS IN ID, did aliens kidnap her? or just her brain?

TAKE FOR INSTANCE THIS AM'S CONVERSATION...I got to hear all about Sophie (the cat), which made the discussion about maybe canning pears difficult to understand, but I finally got the gist of us NOT doing pears at Cory's house (friend of ours), and not at mine, and she wasn't sure about ....um...I sorta lost her there...and then there was Sophie....again

Dad is leaving Sun for Minnisota, and from what I gather she is sorta happy at the prospect of not having "that responsibility" (that part I DO understand), and I know there are things she wants to do before he heads out...SO JUST DO THEM! GEEEEEEEEEEEEZ

it is official, Mark has my permission to smack it out of me if I EVER get that bad, or even close...truely it scared me to think I could be that way...

oh my...sometimes I do love to torment certain persons...I still occasionally torment my exbf via msn...I have so many years to repay him for...he likes to pretend he is a body builder (he COULD be if he got serious, and quit with all the beer!)

so he just go a new job, and I asked how it was going, seems he has been working major OT...think he was expecting sympathy, but he forgets I used to do OT whenever I could get it and have done way more than he has (ie he didn't get ANY sympathy from me! :twisted: )...and he proceeds to say he is bigger than last I saw him, and I responded SO HAVE I ROFL that ran him off quick...he was always suggesting (sometimes even subtly) that I could look REALLY good if I lifted and I told him I didn't have time to waste on that...and that was when I was 20-something and stupid enough to be dating him AND not killing him for suggesting it...thought I would head him off before he got too far, it worked Wink

and Mark was here for lunch...I must say it is nice having him here for lunch...and Brian loves it too...we all get to eat in some semblance of peace...was going to go to the store but SOMEONE got tired and had to go down for a nap :roll: guess I will go later...and I need to do more laundry...is about all I am motivated to do...nasty headache from not eating soon enough I guess...and now I don't feel like eating....peachy...am trying to entice myself with what I can find, but alas, there isn't much to find either....and I want what I shouldn't have...MONGOLIAN BEEF.....yuummmmmmmmmm

not too far from Mexican, which strangely right now sounds ok and that is about it! ah well, ya win some and ya loose some

and Mom is doing a lil better, altho not much...at least I don't feel a need to strangle her....yet

so I posted this on the Jan 03 board, but I truely couldn't resist putting it here too...man that kid sure is cute! I seem to have a future heartbreaker on my hands (no, not at all biased here, am I? :shrug: )

and this am the lil booger was up at 6:30, after he crashed hard last night at 7:45 :shock: :nono: and his bedtime is usually around 9-9:30 :doh: so I shouldn't be TOO surprised...think he is trying to go back on ID time :nono: ACK!

so, *BANG RATTLE RATTLE "vrrrrrrrommmmm vrmmmmm" CRASH PING VRRRRRRRRRRRRRRM*, there was a terrible battle going on in the living room *BEEP BEEP BEEP ROOOOMBA ROOOOOMBA "tuck tuck, BEEP BEEP" BANG crash*, and I am busy posting *"kieeee kieeee" bang...bump* but I can tell exactly what he is doing, and the cat just walked by the boy (kieee kiee, remember?)...he is making a mess of the living room, again, as he usually does, is his job right? *ping "vrmmm" and I expect him to run after said kitty any moment now, puncuated by his normal squeeling *bump "mmmmm"*

and then, all was silent....I mean, SILENT, AS IN QUIET

oh great, it means he is into nono's! I mean after all, is his job, right?

I jumped up to see what he was into...he wasn't...he was asleep on the floor!! :shock: HE HAS NEVER DONE THAT! right in front of him is his noisy truck (the beep beep Roomba roomba dump truck), but sure enough, he is out like a light...I quick got the camera and shot two pics...nothing, he is dead to the world...so I quick made my bed and put him on it (hey, have a lil energy, will go work on something and do another load of wash, can't with him in his room!) and he is STILL dead to the world! so, as soon as I can get them developed, I will have a pic of the massacre...okok, I picked up some of the toys first, so it doesn't look as bad as it did... :roll:

ack...another prego day...sheesh...another nasty nasty headache, and yesterday when I tried to do the stretches to help my hip...YOUCH! I have really had it...I sat there and cried...I feel pretty worthless...I can't/not supposed to pick up Brian, he much prefers Daddy anyway...was on my way into the kitchen the other day to get the broom and sweep the floor and about fell over...felt like someone took a red hot knife and shoved it into my hip...I did vacuum the other night, but that wasn't so nice either, and damn it it was JUST VACUUMING...I can do laundry and plenty of it...but that isn't really cleaning...I did clean out Brian's closet some and it looks quite a bit better, but I really want the motivation AND the lack of pain to do some real cleaning...I don't hurt for now and I am about to go try some stretching...but for the most part if I DO get something done, it is in the am befoer things hurt

I DID get out yesterday...looked at a house...walked the grounds as well, maybe I just over did it :roll: yeah right...then we went and groceries so at least I don't have to go anywhere today.....my poor kitchen really needs some attention...

as or the house, it was a flop...was too much $$ for the crappy house they were trying to sell, too far out, had a COUPLE neat features but so many other things that will need major help it just was so far from worth it...and not enough acreage to offset the whole thing...on the other hand, it didn't daunt me...it isn't anything we COULDN'T do, just not anything we would WANT to do...and that totally shocked the realtor :roll: altho why I don't know...truely it wasn't THAT bad....and as I walked in I could see what all I would do...guess I just see thigns that way

dang I should run an ad in the paper.....see if I get ANYTHING...or maybe I should just accept my fate and burn this house down :twisted: NOT...ah well, it did feel good to get out...at least until I got to the store, then I had a cart to lean hard on, and Brian had somewhere other then "UP!! UP!! UP BEAS!!" and I did get everything more or less put away, dinner cooked (wasn't bad I guess)....

overall, ok, other then the hips and the headaches (tension no less), things aren't going bad I guess...Mark's job is going well, there is basically no chance he will go back to ID, he might have a contract out on site which means he will go back to every other Fri off...we are well on our way to having Christmas done, and I am DYING to go somewhere....THAT we will see...I would just like to be able to do SOMETHING

ACK!

I need to go stretch...:shrug: if nothing else it feels good for a bit

DOWN BOOBS, DOWN!! :shock: GEEZ, THEY ARE GETTING HUGE! and my milk hasn't even come in...I am just about out of my nursing bra, and by golly I have had enough! OW...OWOWOWOW...is not good on my back either

and I did some of my stretching last night...am a tad sore this am, and my hips still hurts this am...more so than yesterday am, but am gonna keep it up...I did get some thigns done yesterday and that was a beautiful thing and felt GOOD...like 4 loads of laundry, cleaned most of the kitchen, straightened up some in our room and Brian's....and altho I feel pretty nasty today (yet another headache) it isn't as bad as it has been

altho Brian is certainly pushing it...lil bugger has had 3 time outs in his crib, had his hand spanked and his bottom...and it isn't even 11!! he has been soooo insistant on tormenting the cats today...and me...and he doesn't want to listen at all...CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!
