My Weekend

I saw Juno yesterday and it is truly fantastic. One of the best films I have seen in a long time. It is just a story about people and how they react to what happens in there lives. Oh, and these are people who have really sharp witty writers working for them. When I first saw the TV spots for this I completely objected to the concept, but it happens and the film does not glorify it.

I have seen Kim and Chrissy so much this weekend and I'll see them again today. I love love love them being here. Molly is getting so used to going over there that she turns that way when we walk past. Chrissy room is almost finished and she is so excited and I'm excited for her. I want only sunshine to glow on her every day. She has gone through so much change and had to adjust to a whole new life.

I had a long time with my Mom about all my baby worries and she reminded me it is completely out of my control. That God is making my babies and they will be exactly who He wants them to be.

I ordered this yarn for a special project for someone. It looks so beautiful and I hope it turns out the way I want it to. All I want to do is knit lately.

Go see Juno!

My Sign

I feel like there is a sign over my head (my life) that reads "baby". Every detail feels like it is weighed by the idea of becoming a mother, of being pregnant. I got my eyebrows waxed over the weekend and asked the girl about skin care during pregnancy (one the things I use now can't be used while I'm preggers). Then I went to the dentist yesterday and got my full set of X rays and was warned that my gums may swell and I need to be extra careful about brushing and flossing due to the increase plaque during pregnancy.
Oh , and by the way, do not take a Life Span and Development while considering having a child, it will only teach you how much can go terribly wrong. Well, needless to say I came home worried and cranky about the whole idea. J says, yeah and? You do your best and it's still a crap shoot.
So, I'll take my vitamins and try to do all the right things and not worry. (Oh and worrying is bad for the baby also)

My Better Day

The last few days have gone better. I managed to be in the right place and I enjoyed class. My math professor this quarter is very enthusiastic about his class. He has a big voice and writes big on the board, which is fine with me. He reminds me of a combination of Josh Kapsch (not sure if I spelled that right)and a guy I had a class with once, Jason. My Psych teacher is pretty good also, maybe a little scattered. I feel challenged but not beyond my abilities, but it is only the first week.

We got some bad news last night. First, I apologize to anyone who should have heard about this before reading it here. Our friend Camron, who is in the Air Force and has been stationed in Alaska for abut fifteen months, has been deployed to Iraq. He will be defending an air base there. I am worried to say the least. I know this is a chance for anyone in the military, but I guess I just wasn't expecting it. In Alaska I only had to worry about bears and overly friendly moose.

So, Hillary won NH, what the hell happened between there and Iowa? Was it the crying?

(Watching Charmed, Cole is so yummyfull)

Last night I got to go over to Kim and Chrissys new place. It was just the beginning of the fun of being so close.

I'm "interviewing" a new OBGYN tomorrow. There are a lot of things to think about through being pregnant and delivery. So, if I like this woman I'll be seeing her a lot in the coming year and beyond.

J (which is what my super private hubby shall be known as here) is taking a comedy improv class starting tonight. I would love to watch him and his buddy (who is taking it with him). I'm guessing there will be a lot of guy giggling. Kim, you know what I'm talking about.

One of my passions is playing with cosmetics and trying out what's new. One of my newest loves is Cover Girls Lash Blast mascara. It's a little pricier than some other drugstore mascara, I think it was in the $8 range, but it works wonders for my lashes and it doesn't flake or smudge, a major plus for me. I hate rubbing my eyes and making them all raccoony. (did you know raccoon is spelled with two c's? I didn't)

That's all for now, Mom are you still reading?

This bag is taunting me.

My First Time

No, not that first time, my first blog. So, who am I? I'm a woman, wife, sister, daughter, friend, student, knitter, someday (soon?) a mother.
I don't know if anyone will read this, but hell maybe you will.

So, thats me in a nutshell. (mind prompts image of Austin Powers in a bloody big nutshell)

I'm watching Fox News, I love Shepherd Smith and he is on now, so I'm watching. It's primary time in NH, four weeks until Super Tuesday. Not that I will get to vote then, nope Ohio gets to wait until March 4, and who cares by then, it will already be decided who our next candidates will be. I love politics, I love ideas, old and new. My not so secret obsession is the Revolution, so many strong brave people fighting for such lofty ideals. Mccain, how did he manage to pop back up? He is a brave man, a POW for five years.He says he put it all behind him, but how can you? I wouldn't, I would have come back all kinds of f*****d up.

Classes started again today, they would have started yesterday, but I kind of missed my first class, crap, I hate not being on the top of my game. I haven't felt on top of my game for a awhile, but I had hope for a new quarter. Today I feel like throwing it all out the window and being a stay at home mom. I've come too far though to stop now. I'm in for the long haul. I'm lucky to have a husband and a very close family who supports me.

I'm a project less knitter at the moment and it makes my hands feel itchy. My next project is for the Snuggles project, which supplies soft beds for animals in shelter, but the needles I bought for it did not work with the curly yarn so I ordered new ones. My first yarn and needle order from an online company, I prefer local yarn stores, but I wasn't sure when I would get to one.

Well, off to put the clothes in the dry. How did I do? It seems uneven and rambling, but maybe thats how my brain works.
