Why am I doing this?

Sneak Peak at Our Furniture!

Here is the first thing. We ordered it in gray and black, not tan and brown like the picture.

The table is boring, but I felt broke by that time. We got the table, 4 chairs and the bench - so we can sit 6 now!

Hopefully it all will be here by mid-February!

Why I Hate Google:

So I am sitting here on Monday night. I just put Dillon to bed and for once he is staying there. (He missed his nap today.) Jason is at a CBC meeting. I am watching TV thinking how good frosting sounds. I Google powdered sugar frosting. I have the ingredients. It went down hill from there and I have now polished off some frosting. How much - not a lot - just enough to full fill my sweet tooth. Hey, I used milk!! I need calcium, right? Who am I kidding? I suck.

We bought new furniture today. We do not have it yet. They had to order the sectional and the kitchen set will stay there till the other comes in. Now we need to sell our couch and our table and chairs. I obviously spend too much money on my days off!!

I never thought I would watch a show like Teletubbies so much! Dillon loves them. He also likes Elmo and Thomas the Train, but Teletubbies win out most of the time. I have to admit, they are pretty weird, but to hear him laugh when he watches them is priceless.

Jason is getting sick. His throat is raw and he is congested. We can't go a week without someone in our house getting sick.

I start school again tonight. I am helping teach another class. I am not looking forward to it this semester. I am really feeling like I need to relax. The good news is it is the early class, so it is 5:30 - 7:30 pm. I will be home before Dillon goes to bed. Last semester it was till 10 pm and that killed me, especially when I first was pregnant!

Happy middle of the week!

Kenneth Early

So I am addicted to looking at Craigslist. I actually have not bought anything off of it, but I like to look. I have actually gone to look at a few things that were not what they said they were. Anyway, not totally misleading - just a difference of opinion and description. Today, I e-mailed the above man about a SUV. I thought it was a misprint because it was a good deal, but I thought, what the heck. He e-mailed me back. Opps, it must have slipped his mind to mention he lived in Utah and he needed the money sent to him and he would "ship" the car to me. He needed the money for his son in the hospital. Boy, I hope his son gets better. What a stinking butt hole. (Strong words, huh? And in case you did not notice, dripping with sarcasm.) I am thankful I have a good head on my shoulders. I feel sorry for some people that get scammed by people like Kenneth Early, especially elderly folks. I pretty sure there is a special place in hell for people who extort money from others.

Our house is being showed tomorrow and we are having an open house Thursday. Wish us luck. We really want to get it sold. If you want to nose around our house, you can stop by Thursday. We won't be here - just lie to our Realtor. If you know him, you're out of luck.

Sucky Week

My week sucked. It just continued to go downhill all week. Work sucked, I threw away $262, I cried a lot, spent even more of it grumpy and mad. Am I ready for the weekend? You bet! As long as it goes OK.

My Mom is coming Saturday, so Jason and I can attend his Holiday work party. I am hoping that will help recharge me - we'll see.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Some days it just does not pay to get out of bed. I am having a little bit of a pity party today. For those of you that have to be around me - I will try and limit it to one day.

I received some bad news today. My mom has breast cancer. That is about all we know right now. She meets with a Doctor tomorrow.

My aunt (her sister) was diagnosed around Christmas, so this is a very strange time for my family. Please keep both of them in your prayers/thoughts.

My son likes to share

And share he did. He gave me the puke bug he had. Yep, I spent last night puking! I love it. I really can't remember a time I was that violently ill. I spare you the other gross details of this bug.

I was able to eat a little today and keep it down. I am still sore and tired though. The best thing for me was getting outside in the fresh air today. Honestly, that is when I felt the best. I guess I will go to work tomorrow. Wish me luck!

One final note: Pray that you do not get this!!

I am at home today with Dillon. He decided to throw up about 7 or 8 times last night. He seems better, but now has diarrhea. No fever, so I guess he must have a little stomach bug. Maybe I made him sick with my spaghetti last night!

I am so tired right now. I seriously have not been this tired since the first week we brought him home from the hospital. Ahh, the joys. Poor kid. Nothing worse than puking.

Good Movie

Jason and I watched a good movie last night - The Reaping. I highly recommend it. It is creepy, but worth it. I actually watched it and did not have problems sleeping too! (For those of you that do not know, I am a fraidy cat!)

Not too much else is going on...just back to the daily grind. Sucks, my next vacation will be maternity leave. Boy, what a vacation!!!

See what happens when you have kids? You are up early on New Year's Day!! No worries - we had a fun night at home. Curt and Krista have been staying with us for a few days, so they were here after dinner. Kimber and her boyfriend, Morgan also joined us. I did stay awake till midnight!

For the first time in 3 1/2 years in a house with a fireplace, we built a fire. It was great. I am sold! We are currently look for a place to buy some firewood.

I went to the Dr yesterday for a regular check up. Everything is good thus far. We find out on February 11 if it is a boy or girl. Stay tuned!
