Things That Suck Right Now...

As I was sweeping half of our kitchen I couldn't help but think, God my back hurts right now. Really? I am literally bending over the tinest bit and I had to finally sit down because it was just so annoying.

So this got me thinking, what is it hard to do right now? So I'll make a list for you guys.

Things that are either totally hard or really suck to do at 33 weeks pregnant:

-Sweep the kitchen floor.

-Walk a 110lb dog on snowy sidewalks, with shitty traction boots, on a path where 700 other dogs have marked their territory. (Ya, this one hurt a bit.)

-Roll over at night. (Which I have to do about every hour because of the pinched nerve in my leg.)

-Get off the couch. (Thane is now a pro, as soon as he sees me rolling to get momentum he just sticks
out his arm so I can use it as a pulling up point.)


-Walk without thinking, "I have to pee. Even though I just did 5 minutes ago."

-Get up off the floor. (I had wondered why people a few months ago kept telling me to get off the floor...well now I understand.)

-Hold other people's kids. Which totally makes me sad.

-Get past cravings. (I have craved a Mt Dew every day lately, and I have only made it one day without having one.)

- To not worry. (We are SO close, only 7 more weeks. It's hard not to worry about the little things. Yesterday I realized I hadn't felt him kick all day, so I laid down to do the kick count. I had some Pepsi and chocolate..and nothing. 2 faint kicks. So of course I freak out and lay by Thane crying. Apparently, B Sutts just wanted to be by his dad because then he started to play soccer.)

-Pick things up off the floor. (Once again, the whole bending over thing. It sucks. This gigantic balloon I have goin on up front makes it a little difficult.)

-Sitting in a chair. (At the bank today I had to sit in the most uncomfortable chair known to man. 2 different ones actually.)

Ok I think that is a good enough list. :)

New Years Resolutions...I need one. or 7.

Tis the Season!

In case you live in a cave, we just had a blizzard.

So due to said blizzard I had two...TWO...snow days.

Knowing how bad the storm was going to be, I planned ahead for Thursday and brought home a ton of stuff from work to work on while I sat inside.

Did I get any of it done? No. I honestly thought of it...buuuut then my couch? Ya, my couch...she was totally upset that I even thought about getting up. So as to make everyone in the house happy, I just stayed there.

Friday, ya it was just as bad. Thane got stuck at the end of our driveway, pretty much in the road...sooo we didn't go to work that day either, due to the fact that our subdivision was not plowed out at all. Did I get anything done? Nope.

Saturday, well I slept in til about noon? and then I......went to Erika's! (So that was productive!!)

Side note, I am watching The Middle right now. What is Sue Heck thinking!? Her sweater has 3D butterflies on it. What kinda kid in High School wears 3D butterflies on their shirt? oiy.

Anyways, today I vowed I'd get something done. SO, I wrapped for um.....4 to 5 hours. By the end, my OCDness was gone. My back hurt. and I was just throwing presents under the tree.

Now, I am confined to our bedroom with Bernie for probably an hour because Thane is wrapping our presents. :)

Maybe when he is done, if I feel like it, I'm going to go finish our Ornament book. Which I really want to finish, but can I find the motivation?

Wish me luck guys.

OH!!! I know what I wanted to blog about!!

So Thursday morning we woke up at 5:20 with a horrible LOUD noise and a bright white light. SO scary. I knew we were supposed to get thunder I was wondering if that comes with snow lightening?

So we got up and checked our dish, made sure the TV was still working, checked the Christmas lights, I even went to the basement to make sure that nothing outside was on fire.

Nothing, Nada. So I went back to bed and Thane was in the kitchen...when another huge boom and even brighter light went off. I of course, fire phobia lady that I am, scream for Thane. When an electircian tells you that it sounds like an electrical boom and is confused as to where it's coming gets scary.

So now we are both looking out the window when I see the POWER LINE across the highway literally blows up. We saw lightning hit a power line at Lake Wisconsin, which was like right across the road, and how it blew up..well this was worse and really scary.  Thane didn't see it of course, but good thing it literally happened again 5 seconds later.

Literally, a horrible way to wake up. I am just thankful the power didn't go out.

Ok, that's it!!!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

My God.

I honestly don't know what is wrong with people.

How can one human shoot another human...let alone a child? 20 children? HOW?

Obviously we have all heard about the horrible tragedy in CT by now...but no one understands it.

Why did a grown man walk into his mother's school, when apparently she was dead at his home?, and kill 26 people?

26 people.

I can't wrap my head around that. Think about it...could you honestly even take one person's life? (if they weren't trying to hurt you or someone you love...)

26!?!? and 20 of this kids?!?! AAHH!!!! I am so upset about this I am rambling.

I work with kids every day...and the thought of this happening at one of their schools makes me want to vomit.

It's one horrible event when this kind of thing happens, especially in a school...but an elementary school? What kinda person do you have to be?

What went wrong in your life that led you down that path?

Worst part...they always kill themselves.

Clearly you are a messed up individual...if your life is that bad that you feel the need to harm innocent people and then yourself....skip that other people part. Seriously.

If you are going to do something so unthinkable, at least have the balls to keep yourself alive and face what happens to you. Not that you'd live long anyways...

People have pointed out that it is so close to Christmas, but it didn't really hit me until I read a FB friend's status...."I don't have kids and I'm not sure if I ever will, however I have been in a funk all day long. I can't stop thinking about the parents of the children that were killed today. I'm so utterly disgusted and I just don't understand who could kill innocent children. My thoughts are with the families that will have unwrapped Christmas presents this holiday."

My god..what a horrible reminder on such a joyous holiday.

Bottom line- Tell your family you love them. Tell your kids you love them. Tell your friends you love them. Tell your friend's kids you love them. and hug them all. You never know when a senseless act by someone crazy can change your entire life.

Is It So Much to Ask...

for some comfy PJs that actually fit?! I mean seriously.

All I'm askin for here are some thick warm pajamas that my gigantic stomach doesn't hang out from under like I'm some sort of redneck who has had waaaaay too much beer in her life. Ugh.

But now. I have resorted to Thane's work sweatshirt, which while it is pretty is almost to the point where it doesn't fit either.


I was driving home tonight jammin out to The Band Perry's Better Dig Two.

Don't act like you don't.

That song has a major beat to it. I love it.

The words however? I can't help feeling weird singing about how this crazy chick is SOOOO "in love" with her man that she will want to be buried next to him ASAP because she can't possibly live one day without him.

My god women..what do you do when he away hunting for the weekend? Do you curl up in a ball the entire time and cry?

Don't you have something better to do with your time than cry your life away?

Girl you be crazy.

With that being's a damn good song. I love the beat and it gets stuck in my head every time I hear it. I even woke up with it in my head this morning....which made me nervous because if you know what has been going on with the love of my life made me worry that it was the theme song of my day.

My man is the most accident prone person I have ever known, thankfully he took the day off from getting hurt.

I still feel like poop..and I have a feeling tomorrow is going to suck. So I'm off to bed!

30 down...10 to go.

I am 30 weeks pregnant.

If you would have asked me a year ago what I would be doing right now, I would not have said, "Oh probably about to push a living human being out of me."

30 weeks guys. Which if all goes perfect..means that in less than 10 weeks I will have a baby.


We finished baby class and I am SO glad we took it.

I'm not going to lie, I hated going every Monday. Mondays suck enough. Who wants to add watching random ladies give birth and see huge needles to the end of you day? Well not me, but I'm glad we did.

I probably could have skipped 2 of the 6 classes because it was way too much info, but the other 4 were really useful. :)

I can happily say though...that now I am officially mentally ready for B Sutts to be here. I will admit it has taken me a while to get here. Its a LOT to grasp. In the next 10 weeks I may still sound like I am freaking out, but honestly I am just excited now.

I have even gotten past focusing on how hard labor is going to be. I said focusing...not understanding. I know its going to blow big time...but now its not the only thing I think about. Thank god, I am thinking past that, to when he is actually here.

I had my family shower on Sunday. It was amazing. So many people were there and it was great to see everyone.

My sister found some sweet games I had never played.
I made Thane come, we had already planned on it, but then it snowed so Thank God he came!!

Anyways, she blindfolded us and we had to put a diaper on a baby. Of course I won, which could be due to the fact that Thane has never changed a diaper in his life. (So of course being the awesome wife I am, I want him to get as much practice as possible at this. So I am thinking he is on diaper duty unless he is asleep. I rock.) It was super funny though..and I'm glad he played along.

Then Kristy had everyone make a baby out of play dough. Funniest thing I have ever seen. They were all awesome!! I'd say about a good 90% of them had a weenis as well. Gotta be accurate right?

Thane even helped me open presents, which was a huge help. It was nice to have help opening baby stuff! Especially the heavy ones. :) to bed. I'm exhausted, even though I slept more than I was awake today.

I hate being sick.

Ohhhhh Pinterest.

Oiy I've had a busy day.

We woke up around 9, but didn't get out of bed until around 9:45. Why? Because I wanted to soak up every minute of our alone time.

In 11 weeks....we won't be so alone anymore. Our Sunday morning routine will totally change.

So I guess I will enjoy our solo time together while I can get it. :)

I finally started my Pinterest projects today!!

1.) Make a book of the cards from my friend baby shower. Easy peasy.
2.) Make a book of each ornament I have collected over the years with Thane, and why they are special to us. Not so easy. It took all day, and I'm still not done.
It all goes back to this blog...Christmas Ornaments Blog and this Pinterest find: The Blog
I am all about memories...and having something for our children to look at in 10 years, so why not make a book?!
It's driving me nuts that its not done though. I may be up all night to finish it.
So to start I found a acid free photo album at Target. It's one of those old school ones where there is plastic on top that you peel up and put pictures underneath.
Then I took pictures of each ornament on the tree that was important to us..and printed them at Target. BIG mistake. I now understand why Target was a little cheaper. Their picture quality sucks...and they crop them stupid.
Thanks Target.
Here is what I have so far.
The cover:
I found some stickers at JoAnne's that I thought would be perfect for the cover. :)
One ornament page:
I used my Cricut to cut out the year and I made a template for the border around the 5x7 picture. It is exactly a 1 cm border. ;)
The description page is a little trickier. At this point I have this page's description printed out to be 5x7 as well. But it depends on each ornament I think. Some I may have more to say, or less to say so the size will change.
Sigh. Seems like a lot of work...but it's worth it to me. :)
Back to work!!
