Big changes are afoot!
Also- I gave my family members fake names while Stink-Butt was in Iraq. Lately the names have been bugging me. Sometimes I'll write the same blog for my family on MySpace and for here and I have to go through and change names. And it's just annoying and tiring. I really don't want to have to go through that anymore. I'm trying to simplify things.
So without further ado:
Stink-Butt is now known by his real name- Stephen and
Hulk-Man is now known by his real name- Paul.
New baby TBA.
That way I can still cook us meals- just with in our points and such. We can know exactly what snacks we can have. And we'll know each other's points so we can get on each other's asses.
Anyone ever do the WW thing? Did you like? Yes, no?

Bitch, pleaseEver have one of those moments where you just want to scream at someone, "OMG, shut the fuck up! You're not better than me and you never will be. You're a fake ass whore!"
Of course you have.
I just wish I had the guts to actually say it out loud and defend myself.

What the heck happened?!I need advice from my mamas!
Well, not all of you. But I'm too nice to be all like "uhh, why are YOU giving me advice? Your child is a Devil-child!" Ha! Don't worry, it's not you, you, you, or you. So everyone give me any advice they can offer and I'll throw out the ones from the parents of the beasts. Man I'm mean...
Hopefully this is just a one time fluke- but here's the situation.
Last night we put Hulk-Man to bed like always. He had his bath, he watched a short video (either a Baby Einstein or a They Might Be Giants: Here Come the 123s / ABCs), he cleaned up his toys, he got a story- hugs and kisses and in bed. That's the routine*.
Well last night Stink-Butt and I went upstairs to go to bed and Hulk-Man's crying. He started crying around 10 or so. So Stink-Butt said (he went upstairs like a minute before me).
So I let him cry for about 5 minutes. I do NOT believe in rushing in your child's room the second they make a whimper or peep.
Hulk-Man's been sleeping through the night since he was 3 months old.
I know.. and I'm complaining about one night? I should be thanking my lucky stars. Oh and I do...
So the fact that he was crying at all was extremely strange. When he didn't stop crying after 5 minutes I started the technique, again, that I used to get him to sleep through the night.
I went in, did not pick him up, patted his back and said "night night" and left.
He has NEVER had a problem putting himself to sleep. Unless he was sick.
He wasn't sick, had no fever, was not full of poop and had eaten all his dinner. He was fine.
But finally at 11:00- with me going in every 10 minutes or so to pat his back and walk out- he stopped and went to sleep.
So anyone know why the sudden change? I don't want to base it off just one night- he might've just had a bad night.
But if this does continue... is it because he's technically entered the "terrible 2s" stage?
He acts like he has no idea a new baby is coming- but did he just realize it last night?
We took his pacifiers away about a week ago and at first he was fine- did he just have a slow reaction and is wanting them?
Nothing has changed in our routine, we've not put him in his big boy bed yet (but soon!).... I'm confused.

dumbassery and pregnancy do not mixI just paid a crap load of bills with checks from a checking account we no longer have.
Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Yup, still pregnant....I still have 7 weeks to go and I am SO ready for this child to be born!
I need to learn to enjoy the time now, with just one, while I can.
But omg, hurry up!

blah blah blah infinity!lots of stupid crap to blog about- no one thing that deserves it's own post- so you get bullet points! You lucky duck!
I wanted to dress up (like I do every year) but with this big ole belly and having to push a huge stroller through a mass of people I just did NOT want that hassle!
Anyway, photos of the event at the end of the blog.
-after we just watched a show about dragons. Hulk-Man did NOT want to go up close to the dragon... so we took our photo off to the side.
-At the petting zoo. I'm explaining to him where they get lamb shoulder chops....
-His first turkey leg! Nom nom nom!
-at the joust
-my boys watching the joust.

This baby is a brat!Last night was our 4th anniversary.
It doesn't feel like it- probably because Stink-Butt was gone for a year.
Everyone knows you have to be physically together for a year in order for that year of marriage to count! Hahahahaha, just kidding! :)
Anyway- so because we both have the "I don't know what to get you, nothing is good enough" syndrome.
We decided then that when it comes to gift buying for our anniversary every year we would stay with in the theme of that anniversary. Like the first year was paper, 50th is gold, you know....
So this year it was fruit and flowers. Great. What are you supposed to get a *guy* when the theme is fruit and flowers? He's not going to appreciate a big bouquet of roses or something cheesey like that.
My last minute (I say last minute- to me last minute means a month before hand, haha) plan was to make a fancy dinner consisting of lamb and fancy potatoes) and for dessert make him apple pie with vanilla icecream (topped with homemade praline sauce).
So yesterday Hulk-Man and I went to Michaels and hit the wedding aisle and got fake rose petals, and fake silver candle holders, etc. The table looked lovely :) It would've been a super romantic dinner- if a toddler wasn't between us. Ha! I guess I could've/should've done what my mom and dad used to do- have their romantic dinner after all the kids had eaten and gone off to bed.
But it was a good thing I didn't because after dinner while I was washing the dishes and Stink-Butt was hosing pie off of Hulk-Man I got a contraction. Which I didn't really mind- I get them every now and then. No big deal. The doctor told me to come in when I have 6 or more in an hour.
So I went on like normal cleaning the kitchen- and then another one came. And then another....
When the 5th one came within 30 minutes I told Stephen to pack up Paul because we were heading to the emergency room.
These are the kind of bratty things our kids apparently do....
I had contractions all the way there, the baby wasn't moving, etc but the minute they hooked me up to all the moniters (s)he started moving like crazy.
I had *one* contraction while in the hospital.
What a little brat! Hahaha! So after monitering me for an hour they sent me home.
Thankfully it was nothing- since I'm only 32 weeks along- but still this kid needs to stop pulling pranks like that!
Anyhoo- here are some photos we took last night:
side note- why are those jeans super comfortable, and not tight at all and when I take photos it looks like they can't contain my huge ass? Sigh....

When there's nothing, play Sims....Since my last post I could not think of a single thing to write about. If you think my blog is boring on a normal basis, it's even MORE boring when nothing is going on! Hahahaha.
So- I decided to do a blogging Sims bitches update:
Not much is happening in the Sims household.
Kami and Clare are STILL arguing... those 2 have such a love hate relationship
Katy is a kareoke-ing diva!
Some fucking crazy ass old woman rubbed my face in her boobies
She did something odd to me... Crazy old woman!

WHYYYY??!?!?!?!!Why do I watch these craptacular shows?! They are full of the most annoying people on the planet!
Maybe the universe. I'll let you know after I've traveled through space.
First- America's Next Top Model
Yes, indeed, WHY the hell am I watching this? Why have I watched EVERY season sicne the first? I can't stop! It's an addiction to fucking dumbasses!
Ok, last night's episode... there's a girl, Hannah who's described herself as "the typical white girl."
Well- to EVERY one in the house who isn't white that meant to them- racist
Isn't it actually racists to assume that white = racist? I mean this girl has not said one racist remark. So, shut up bitches.
Oh wait- the SheMale, Isis was moving backwards in the hottub and was going to sit on Hannah's lap so Hannah put her hands out like, "hey, I'm sitting here." and of course that just meant she was intolerant of non-white, non-straight people.
It doesn't mean that it means "I don't like people sitting on my lap."
Why do I watch this show? Seriously!
side note- Miss Ann, nope we don't know the sex. I don't want to pay for another ultrasound just for that, so we'll know the day (s)he pops out

Stupid pregnancy crapHulk-Man is a big boy now. He's almost 2. He's a toddler.
But the second I have this new baby is officially the day that Hulk-Man is no longer "the baby."
Oh geez- shut me up.
I'm sitting here bawling like a dumbass because soon Hulk-Man won't be my only baby. And then soon the new baby will be a toddler, and then before I know they're all grown up and leaving me!

Enough of this political crap
Plus I'm sick.
Chatty Kathy I will not be.

I yam what I yamThere are things I do not want my blog to be-
But recent circumstances is making the latter difficult.
It's becoming increasingly harder to not yap about this upcoming election and the politicians in it.
I hate that I have to defend my feminism.
I guess I'm just not a true feminist- because I believe in equality. Not one race or gender needing to be over and better another.
I chose to raise my children at home. Did my husband make that choice for me? No. Did he say if I wanted to work outside the home that he'd gladly stay at home? Yeah.
it's important to us that someone stay at home- that is our family choice
To have an opinion and a choice
That's just fucking retarded.
And I'm mad that I can't ever shut up and let things go. I'm mad I had to make a blog post about this.
instead of all the totally awesome and fascinating topics I usually post about.... haha!
And worst of all is that you* made me defend someone I'm not even going to vote for.
You made me defend a
*You as a general "you" not any "you" in particular

Ew my farts stinkBullet points! Just for you!
It took for-fucking-EVER to get an NPC witch to come around and be friends with her and blah blah blah.
Thank god for the Insiminator... wait. What? I didn't say anything.
I'd ask my MIL because she is one of the most generous people on the planet and goes all out for Christmas and I always feel bad because I never know what to tell her when she asks me what I want. Now I have something to tell her!
If I vote for
It's just way too hard.

Oh just stopSeriously some
They don't call us "Bleeding hearts" for nothing. We care (I can hear Stink-Butt scoffing and laughing now... lol).
So I'm getting really disgusted with all the family attacks on Sara Palin.
One journalist even said:
"You want to look good to the evangelicals? Choose a running mate with a Down syndrome child."
Seriously- that was just rude.
Now I may not agree with all of Palin's politics (duh)- but I respect the woman.
She saw stuff that needed to be changed- so this mom of 5 did something about it.
She's kind of the anti-politiciian politician we need (and that I've been waiting for).
She's a true feminist (I don't think you HAVE to be pro-choice and only focus on your career to be a feminist...)
I'm embarrassed at the brutal attacks being made on her. It gives people like me a bad name.

Labor Day WeekendThis weekend Stink-Butt, Hulk-Man and I went to Lake Okoboji to hang out and be lake bums for a bit.
OMG, it was soo relaxing. With the stress of moving, our budget being tighter than ever and all that we really needed to flop out on a deck on a lake.
We drove in around midnight and went straight to bed- cause what were we going to do at midnight after a 6 hour car ride where Hulk-Man barely slept (because he wasn't at all comfortable)?
The next morning Hulk-Man popped up awake and for some reason I did too- right at 7am (I love having a schedule but sometimes I wish our bodies would let us just sleep in!). Stink-Butt took him downstairs, stopping at a window at the landing where Hulk-Man saw the lake for the first time.
Stink-Butt and his family have a little lake house that everyone has been going to since Stink-Butt was 12. It's family tradition.
Anyway- So this is the first time Hulk-Man's been. He saw that lake and about lost it he was so excited! He didn't stop prancing around with joy the whole weekend.
The lake house is so special to everyone in Stink-Butt's family (and me too by default) that it was wonderful to know that it's just as special and magical to Hulk-Man too.
So enough yapping- on to the photos!
Hulk-Man got in trouble cause he was throwing a fit and whining:
Sitting on the deck:
Oh pffft, Hulk-Man doesn't matter- the picture was all about MEH!
Our first photo together in what seems like forever:
That kid just loves the lake (as does Hulk-Man, hehe):
Holy shit- I'm barely starting my 3rd trimester and my belly looks like THAT already? OMG, please don't let me have a monstrous baby!:
Hulk-Man with his grand-daddy (Stink-Butt's dad) at the park:
His first Nutty Bar- minus the nuts. It's a tradition that's been at the lake since t he 40s.
omg he was a mess!
He's such a big kid, hehe:
Alright, I am too...
My Hulk and I
man, my boobs are looking great these days! Hahaha
