My New Baby Nightmare

......So my favorite Gucci Mama, Miss Stephanie herself, produced a crazy looking baby and posted it for all to see on her wonderful blog. My curiosity was piqued so I decided to give it a whirl too. Just to see what this kid could possibly end up looking like...AAAAAAAGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! LoL. Now I know what I will be having nightmares about for the remainder of this pregnancy.....

Can we say crazy looking kid? And he's white too no less! LoL my babies are all Hispanic. Whoa mama...
As for baby news, nothing to report here. I was having a meltdown a few days ago about how I have this baby room that needs a complete makeover badly before Ignacio gets here. It's got peeling white wallpaper, nasty carpet and everything that needs to get put in there. It's not like white trash, cockroach infested, it's just been 3 or 4 years since my dad was able to climb the stairs to actually be in there to do anything so like everything in this house, it just needs a little work. Well, I was having issues figuring out the scheme and how no matter what colors I wanted in the room, nothing would match the theme I wanted to do (rainforest) so I was feeling pretty frustrated. Well today I went to the hardware store and stood in front of the paint color swatch section thingy and picked out my two colors. Brown and green. LoL. I don't remember the fancy name for them but they are just a dark brown and a dark green. Really pretty but still boyish. And I've decided to do stripes and then do a tan color on the ceiling to sort of make the room look taller than what it really is. Next weekend is when I hope to begin the painting process. I hit up a garage sale yesterday and scored a big dresser for the room too and that will get painted as well. I'm thinking of doing it all brown and making the shelves and drawers green. To match the room. I'll do before and after pictures so everyone can see what it all turns out like and I can get some feedback. My husband is colorblind so he really doesn't care, LoL. My father hates the colors but he's old fashioned and thinks blue and white are great combos. Ugh too plain for me thanks dad.
Abel is leaving in a little bit to go off to Minot which is a little over an hour away. He'll be there for work until Friday afternoon when he gets to come home again. We're heading up on Wednesday so we can do some grocery shopping, pick up my baby swing (yay) and hopefully some bassinet sheets and a case of diapers. If I do a little baby shopping every check we get, we should be done by the time baby gets here. I hope.
So I hope everyone's weekend was great! Mine was a little slow but yet got stuff accomplished so I'm good. Now I'm off to play some Farkle on Facebook (talk about addicting!) and who knows what else. Have a great rest of the day and I'll be on again later!!

Looking Back...

I would like to go on record that I was forced into doing this, LoL. But it's okay because it's pretty fun to look back on these past 8 months. I, officially as of tomorrow will be 32 weeks. 8 months pregnant mind you. 8 whole months. And will have 2 months to go. I feel like an elephant. LoL. So to all my bloggie friends, enjoy the photos and belly but please ignore the huge a** behind me, it seems to have grown at the same rate of the belly. And even though they could be worse, I am not in love with them so ignore the stretch marks as well. LoL.
Hope you enjoy!

Question. How in the world do you NOT know you are pregnant? Granted you could slide the first few months with maybe not knowing although missing a few periods and throwing up all the time would be my first suspicious note. Has been everytime. But when you start gaining weight and feeling something kicking you from the inside?? What is the excuse then?? I'm flabbergasted. And yes, even a little judgmental. Sorry. I adore watching Discovery Channel. They have this show coming on in half an hour called I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant. Are you kidding me? Bunch of lies just to get on TV I say. Puh-lease...
Found someone who almost had to feel my pregnancy wrath last night. Went out with a few friends and the husband last night. Yes to a bar. So I'm done with Shirley Temples. they were cute the first few times but now they make me sick. So I ask the bartender, hey you work here, what can you make me that's virginized or non-alcoholic? I get a dumbfounded stare and then a "Gosh, I don't know." Wow. Yep there's my stupidity for assuming that because someone works somewhere, they automatically know something. So then I tell him, okay tell you what, I'd like to buy a pitcher of virgin margaritas and I'll even throw in an extra tip for the effort. Then Mr. I'm Too Good To Do My Job decides to launch into this full fledged "I don't want to do my job and here's why" speech. Too much effort. Seriously is the excuse I got. Now mind you, had the bar been full of patrons, I would have never asked for this time consuming drink. But it was pretty much empty and the customers that were there were drinking beers. The effort required there was pulling a bottle out of the fridge, opening it and giving it to them. Ooooh effort...
My whole rant is that if you can't do your job then don't freaking work there. Especially if you uneducated about it. When I have a customer next to me who gives me about 40 drinks I could have, it makes me wonder why he is sitting on that side of the bar. I get so tired of people working in jobs they don't appreciate or do correctly when there are people out there who don't have jobs.
There are guys who work with Abel who actually have "I hate the railroad" parties. Seriously?? Then why the hell do you work there? You're right. Medical benefits, retirement plans, good job stability and the fact that you make more than most anyone in this entire town combined with someone from the next town over is just soo horrible! Give me a break.
It's hot outside. I'm sweaty. And obviously a tad cranky. Oh dear, the hormones are kicking in again, haha. I've never felt so huge in my life. I have a cloth here and actually wiping sweat out from under my boobs. You have got to be kidding me. 9 more weeks. 9 more weeks. Confound it, 9 more weeks. LoL. Eh I'll be all good tomorrow. Not so cranky. I hope. I may kill someone tonight. LoL. God help the next person who gets in my way I swear. Maybe I'll go to Montana and start stalking those crazy WalMart shoppers for someone I know ;) Haha. I need some ice cream....
Alright. I'll end the vent here. Holy crap 18 kids in one family!?!? I need to turn off my TV and walk away now..Love to all! Seriously..I like you guys. It's everyone else I pretty much hate right now, LoL!!!!


PS--->If Clint Eastwood or the chick who wrote My Sister's Keeper happens upon this; YOU are part of my blacklist. I'd explain why but I'm afraid I'd blow the movie/book for those who haven't seen/read it. But you suck. Thanks.

About Time For An Update Yes?

Ahh my bloggy friends! Sorry it's been forever and a day. I partly blame FarmTown over on Facebook and I partly blame...Well, me and my laziness, haha. It's so easy to feel lazy these days. 9 weeks left before this turkey comes out and I'm always tired it seems. Very little energy and just ehhh love to nap, haha. My body must be telling me to stock up on all the sleep I can, because it's the last I'll see for awhile.
Our little vacay in Minnesota went well. We hit up the Mall of America and got to do a little shopping. I bought a post-pregnancy dress which I tried on, cried and then tore off and stuck in the waaay back end of the closet. I'm upbeat about it for next summer however. My goal? I WILL weigh 145 again. It's been years but now that this I smy last kiddo, I can finally get off my butt and get back down to that weight. The husband has promised me a shopping spree and I get to throw every piece of clothing out once I hit that weight. How can I NOT lose weight, haha.
Anyways, along with the Mall, we also hit up the state zoo which was alright. I'm a California native, and San Diego Wild Animal park/Zoo is my idea of a place for animals when I think of them behind bars so when I see a Bald Eagle in a cage that probably is smaller than a jail cell, it makes me feel pretty sad. "Hi Mr. Bald Eagle, we love your wings and enjoy your flight patterns but we're sticking you in a cell and please don't extend your wings, you may get them stuck in the fencing." Sadness...But my daughter had a blast and it was fun for us as a family outing so I won't complain and put it down too much.
Abel passed his big test with only 6 questions wrong out of 250. I'm a proud wifey let me tell you what. Passing the test just means he's officially a certified railroad conductor. He can now ride without another conductor there watching over him and he gets to keep his job which is always good. Had he failed, they would have fired him. So this is all good.
Speaking of hubby, today is our 4th wedding anniversary. I'm prouder than ever to say we made it this far. It seems like this past year has been the hardest on us and our marriage. But we came through it stronger and a little closer so it was worth it. I'm just glad we came through it. I can sometimes be one of those people where when things get tough, I run away and for once, I didn't. It's a good thing :)
We also had an ultrasound today. It makes me horribly nervous because baby is still breech and I'm praying he turns soon. I don't want a c-section. I have anxiety about having one and I know I wouldn't be able to put up with the meds very well. Epideral? Holy crap no thanks! LoL. If I have to do it, I have to do it but I won't be pleasant about it. Everytime they do an ultrasound I always tell them, make sure and show me his little boy parts so I can be sure it's really a boy. I have nightmares of all them telling me how he's a boy but then when he comes out, he turns out to be a she. Today we got like two seconds of a glance of it and then could only see the scrotum as the stinker shut his legs. He's a prude. Takes after me, haha.
What else...There isn't much going on right now really. My mother is making plans and reservations on coming up after baby is here which will be nice. And Abel is taking a few days off to help out too which will be great. This will be the one hospital stay I ask to stay as long as possible, haha. I want a few days to be with my baby alone and not have to deal with both kids at once. Hannah has turned into a clingy child right now. She wakes up and wants me to carry her everywhere and freaks out when I put her down or when someone else deals with her other than me. I have no idea why she has gotten this way all of a sudden but am trying to break her of it so that I don't have to deal with that when baby gets here. Otherwise that will make for lots and lots of fun! LoL.
Anyways, I hear my husband's car coming so I better jump off and pretend that I was doing some housework! I'm posting some random photos just for fun for everyone :) I hope you are all doing well and hope you forgive my absence of comments and blogging!
