I'm Still Married ... LoL

I'm still married.... that in itself is an accomplishment of the week.

Pregnancy hormones, oh let me be the first to tell you they are not a joke, they are rough, rough, rough, so all the ladies 20 weeks and less, I want to warn you that your hormones are going to be raging very soon. I feel bad for your husband's.... shyt.... I feel bad for my

I'm considering moving my blog to, it's a consideration, not a true definite, I feel that with all the changes, I am not statistically screwed.... I am statisticially blessed... but another part of me, yes that paranoid part feels that changing my blog will be some sort of bad luck, I am, yes it's true, one weird cookie.

Drifting Through Life

While driving home last night, the radio host mentioned, that anyone that works 12 hours or more a day is simply exisiting and not enjoying their family life and the real world, I must say I agree. I remember going to a job interview where the hours where 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., now I live about an 1.5 hour away (far far in the and I always calculate a workday in this manner....

Wake up: 6:00 a.m.
Leave House: 6:45 - 7:00 a.m.
Arrive at work by: 8:30 a.m.
Leave work at: 5:30 p.m.
Sit in traffic in route to house: 1.5 hours
Home: 7:00 p.m.

Needless to say, I turned that job down.... oh yeah.....

I spoke to a few mothers and they told me the best parenting advice is to realize that you can't be great in everything. Work or your family life will can not be done 100% to it's maximum potential and that you really have to prioritize what will come first.

Now my question is, are you merely just exisiting? Do you have a work-life balance?

It's My Shower and I'll Hate It If I Want To...

My husband ruined my shower for me.....

He tells guest to arrive at noon..... he tell my mother who has all the food to come at 2:00 p.m.

People wait for 3 hours with no food... I didn't even realized we had no cookies/chips left until I saw the empty tray.....

He tells my mother we're having 10 people ....

We end up having 36......

My mother starts crying because she doesn't have enough food, was late and was upset cause noone was helping her unwrap the food....

I couldn't help her because I was busy getting more food........

Yes....I was at pathmark.... then the pizza store...

I went to pick up pizza and salad....

Yep....spend 74 bucks...

Pizza guy felt bad and gave my free canolies....

I carried the boxes at my own shower...

But where was my husband?

Oh socializing downstairs....


Oh yeah, playing music, disregarding my actions, basically being UNRELIABLE...

Yup.... pretty much can't be happy when your husband throws you a shower and makes you do everything....

He gets WORST and WORST everyday....

I get smarter everyday... and have a "get out of jail card" to use if this doesn't start working out..

Yea of course there was a HUGE fight after everyone left...

Excuse the mayo and ketchup he has all over his clothing ... and the broken plates and thrown bread....

I had a MAJOR meltdown, because this was the THIRD time he's disregarded my feelings...

Oh the first time???

1. He leaves me on a sofa at his company party, neglects to introduce me and gets mad because I can't get up and "mingle" mind you I'm 8 1/2 months pregnant, I've started having contractions and I swell..... oh yea.... I swell

2. We go to a party for a co-worker of mine, and he just can't stop the delicious taste of alchol (insert sarcasm) he drinks 10 beers, even after I plead for him to stop..... then.... 2 glasses of champagne... I am mortified.... when he starts acting stupid to the point...I start crying to go home, I slept on the couch that night... tonight he will...

I am... to say the least.... really...really (insert sad face)

The Stork Is Droppin The September Babies!

Mandy had her twins!!! Go to Hoping for Hoberts and show the proud parents some LOVE!!

Another lady on my due date board when in labor yesterday, we haven’t heard from her, so keep her in your thoughts.

Did I mention that almost everyone on my DDBoard baby has dropped or is trying to claw out….lol… I’m totally nervous!
I know that twins typically come early but sheesh, the mere thought of someone having babies now that are only due a week or two before me, scares the hockey sticks out of me. The funny thing is, I know that Babybell is heads down, I feel her little arms down low and legs up high, and she is such a cute little can totally see myself this week disinfecting the house inside and out and washing baby clothes. Argh!!! I’m going to be a mother soon! The baby’s room is about as complete as I want it to be, being that we haven’t purchased the crib bedding, which I think we shouldn’t do for a while, our daughter will be in our room in a co-sleeper for at least the first 10 weeks. Her dresser and chest/changing table is totally ready for onesies and socks…On that note, My shower is Sunday, I’ll post pictures later on, if you ever need a visual of my tummy, imagine a string bean with a gumball for a middle…haha

Just Mommies Quizzes

I'm in no rush for Babybell to leave my nest, little bell take your but just in case:

Your labor prediction quiz results are below.....

Get your bags packed early just in case you need them. Make sure your partner has a phone available when he's away because this baby just might come early. We predict your baby will come 2-3 weeks early. Your baby will most likely be born in the morning. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.0 pounds and that your labor will be about 13 hours long.

And The Shower Must Go On...

It may not be the huge affair we anticipated, but at least it will be an affair =)

I am pretty excited.... partly due to this new shower (my mom throws great showers) and partly cause I'm getting some really good deals from craigslist (sweet).... this baby is soooo lucky!

Mother In Laws..Suck Sometimes....Well Mines Suck ALOT

I am hurt beyond words right now...

Since May we've planned to have my baby shower the 26th of July. My mom and aunt offerred to throw it, but my DH's mom, insisted on doing the invitations and the shower. Since she's NEVER gave a big interest into planning anything with her own money and DH was so proud that his mom actually wanted to do something good, (I turned down my mom's and aunt's offer)

DH's mom wouldn't answer the phone all week, the only time she answered is when we called her from a number she didn't know, and guess what her first words were "who's number is this?"...We asked how the shower planning was and she says, "Lets talk tomorrow, I'm at a party right now" Now yesterday we find out that NONE of the invitations went out, the place isn't even booked, a menu hasn't been decided.... NOTHING has been done... NOTHING...

She give my DH a sorry a** story that oh times are hard and she had to pay down debt (non-existent debt, because she told us last month all of her paycheck goes to her, she doesn't have bills, her husband pays everything), mind you, she has NO problem wasting her money on the things she likes, i.e (2) packs of smokes a day and drinks. She says we'll let's push it back (she tell DH this and not me, because I would of been LIVID) I tell DH to tell her, no, that we will not have a shower when I'm 40 weeks pregnant (we doubt I'll go past 38 weeks anyway)

What hurts even more is that the invitations were only 40 bucks and that she could of told us in June when we kept asking why none of our guest got an invitation, since she swore she mailed them... My mom had been OFFERING to help this whole time... and she lied and said that everything was done and booked....Thank god my mom said don't worry about it, the baby will have EVERYTHING she needs... thank god for GREAT moms =)
