Why why whyWhy... do people not know how to drive here? For serious! Yesterday I was taking Stephen back to work after lunch and this r-tard was getting on the freeway and I'm usually nice and get over to let people merge on more easily. Well this small penis car (red, sporty, with ZAP on the liscence plate- ugh!) was just trailing along in my blind spot. And then the fucker trying to get on the freeway wasn't slowing down. Like hello dumbass! You yield to ME! Jeez.
Then today this idiot on the shoulder of the freeway- put his blinker on and then just decided to try and get on the freeway. With me next to him. Not in his blindspot or anything. Dude just because you put your blinker on doesn't mean traffic is just READY for you to join!
Why...Do some people assume that if you're not voting for Obama that means you're a racist? I'm for equality, not for ok this race / gender / etc is ahead... now the next...! It's stupid.
I'd get into why I'm not voting for Obama but I don't want to. I don't want this to be a political post
Why... do I have such a crush on Sylar? Seriously. When he threw Peter out the window ... omg that was so hot.
maybe I just need to get laid- lmao!
That's about it today.
Oh yeah- one more thing- I'm dialated a whole 1 cm! Ooooh

When you're slidin' into 1st, and you feel something burst....Ok, I'm going to post about something I've never posted about... Poo. So brace yourselves. Or just go away.
1) I've been married to Stephen for over 4 years now and known him for over 5 (yes, we are "technically" newlyweds still...), but I have not ever let him see me poop or vomit. Ever. I don't know why.
He's seen my stomach cut open, he's seen what my cooter looks while menstrating and not, he's even seen me with hairy armpits when I was too lazy to shave. I even farted in his car on our first date.
So I don't know why I have such an aversion to him seeing me vomit and go #2. I'm just odd like that I suppose.
2) With that being said- with children and pregnancy you can't always be private about certain things. As hard as I try.
I got sick this weekend- well I wouldn't say sick. I have no idea what happened. I wasn't "sick" at all- no nausea or anything. I had some allergy troubles but that's no big deal.
Anyway... then as I was heading to bed I felt like I had to fart- so I did what any normal person would do I let myself fart.
Yeah... I totally sharted. I as I was doing that I had to run to the toilet to vomit.
It was by far the nastiest thing I've ever done. I mean not on purpose. So I spent the next half hour painting my toilet with vomit and crap, and then taking a shower and throwing my clothes in the wash.
And then all today I wasn't aloud to eat anything solid until dinner. OMG, I'm so tired and queasy.
I did read though that diahrea (sp?) is a pre-labor symptom... omg please say it's true. Do you know how sad it'd be to have 2 kids and not know what labor feels like? I mean- I know it sucks, but I still would like that experience at least once in my life.
3) Ok, and while we're on the subject of crapping in odd places. Paul had another "first" tonight.
He totally just shit in the bathtub.
How do you explain to a toddler who doesn't really know he has to poop or pee that poop doesn't go in the bathtub?

Being sick + OCDI think being sick heightens my anal OCD side.
There's never more a need for things to be perfect, for the kids to behave.
I wish when I were sick I could just let go and not care... but how can I when no one will behave and shut UP?
Sigh... I need a nap

What I learned from America's Next Top Model this week:
But please don't try and use more than 2-3 at a time. You might fall and not look as fierce as possible

Just give me a specific time to roll with the punchesOk- I try not to be that anal when it comes to time and schedule- but when people are SO unorganized it absolutely drives me nuts.
Ha! Imagine how I was before my meds!
When someone tells me we're going to eat dinner at 5:30 I expect us to be sitting at the table at 5:30. When someone says we're leaving at 7 I expect us to be in the car at 7. Seriously now, is it too much to ask?
A few weeks ago I was looking online for a pumpkin patch I could take Paul to- I didn't just want to pick out a grocery store pumpkin (for photos, not like he'd remember... lol). And I found this great place with an apple orchard, pumpkin patch, chickens, hay rides, etc. And thought, omg that's perfect!
I grew up going to Oak Glen. It's still one my favorite places on the planet. I love to pick apples and be in that Fall enviroment.
So about a week later I was talking to a girl from church who's husband is the youth minister- and she was saying that they were all going to go to this pumpkin patch here (the one I was looking up that reminded me of Oak Glen) and invited us to come along. I thought "omg! Great! We don't really know anyone from church so we can go meet them, and Paul can start having wonderful apple picking experiences like I did!"
They sent an email asking people to RSVP and that we'd meet in the church parking lot at 5 and head over there.
Ok... so we're in the church parking lot- where the heck is everyone else? We call them and apparently we're supposed to meet at the orchard.
Whatever. I can feel my organized ass tingling.
Now, if you were going to a pumpking patch and apple orchard wouldn't you think you'd be you know- picking apples and pumpkins? Or was I just naive enough to assume that?
They- the youth minister and his wife- planned this event after the place had closed to the public. At night. We had this barn to ourselves for our "party." And we indeed went on a hay ride.
But, I'm sorry, I was a little more than disapointed when I realized Paul would not be getting a pumpkin or help pick apples.
side note- Paul is obsessed with apples and loves them and says the word all day long
Paul also goes to bed at 7:30. We didn't start cooking our "dinners" until 7:15.
Hot dogs on sticks too short over a fire big enough to warm a fly.
In the email it said "tons of food."
I'm Italian- a bag of hotdogs and a few bags of chips is not a ton of food people. Sorry.
So we left after the hay ride- around 7:30. No pumpkin, no apples.
BUT- Paul had a good time playing and trying to run into the fire (and then getting a spanking from me in front of everyone- it's always a good way to know who will be your friends or not after you've spanked your kids in public).
So on the one hand- I'm glad we went but on the other hand, omg! I cannot handle such a "whatever, we'll eat whenever we eat..." type attitude. Especially not with a toddler.
btw- the youth minister and his wife have a 3 year old, but they let *her* make up her schedule.... omg that just makes my head spin.
Next year we'll take him back - just our family - and he'll remember it more and have a better time picking out his pumpkin and what not.
Updated to add:- I may be anal about time and what-not but at least I'm not one of those freakazoid parents in Gymboree's padded room who helicopter over their kids. Like God forbid they fall onto the padded mats from an inch off the floor! Ugh!

Stupid fights are all the excitement I haveOh boy! You guys get to be referee! Please
I'm just going to copy and paste the conversation and let you decide:
chlnaturester (that's me!): I don't know why I haven't been doing this since the first second of my pregnancy but it's a great plan and I was on a stricter one with Paul/had my diabetes- and I remember feeling great. So I'm going to base my meal plan around that best odds diet (it's in my what to expect book)
I remember feeling much healthier and had more energy plus I lost some of that excess nastiness
and you're getting all the nutrition you need so you don't really feel like you're missing out- unless t he chocolate monster comes to call lol
"Stephen" (that's him!): how does this diet effect me?
chlnaturesterI make the meals
you eat them
you won't starve
I'm just making us healthier
"Stephen": You have less than a month left, is this going to matter?
except for snacks, we eat very healthy
chlnaturester: well- it's not just for pregnancy- it's a great meal plan all around
I'd like to do this again- I need more balance in my diet and never know how
this will help me
I like balance
"Stephen": What is the plan?
I want some say
Ok let's take a break here so I can point something out, ok? Um... read his last statement. I'm just gonna leave it that. It speaks for itself....
chlnaturester: you have a certain # of servings you have for the day in each food category
like whole grains/bread etc is 6-11 servings and they tell you what a serving is
so if you have a sandwhich that's only 2 of your servings for the day
you can imagine that you wouldn't starve
"Stephen": We should just do http://www.mypyramid.gov/
Then we will be fine. Same idea
I'm not putting us on a diet
"Stephen": That site has a thing were you can tracker you servings and everything
chlnaturester: I'm balancing our meal- and making our dinner plans and such around healthy eating
yes, but Im not gonna keep up with that
"Stephen": I will bet you anything that it is the same program
chlnaturester: ok probably- but this is everything right in front of my face- I can make a meal plan now- that thing you have to keep checking and all that stupid crap
"Stephen": Check out the site. It has a meal planner, a tracker and all kinds of stuff
chlnaturester: so I'm going food shopping and making our meals healthier
why must you fight me on everything?
"Stephen": Why won't you check out the site? I think it's a better idea if we both have plans customized to our individual body types, then both get on a pregancy diet
chlnaturester: I've seen the site before- remember we both started keeping track and doing that
"Stephen": No, I don;t remember
"Stephen": Well, I would rather do that plan, than the pregoo one
AND the site has a preggo plan as well
chlnaturester: sigh ok fine. I just wanted to make a meal plan without it being me making you one size of dinner and me another with you one type of something and me another. This is not a "pregnancy" plan- it's just balanced nutrition
So just make me up your plan and then email it to me so I can figure out our dinners and stuff
"Stephen": We can have the same food with different serving sides. I think you are thinking this will be harder than it is
chlnaturester: just make yourself a plan- but I need to make the grocery list/meal plan today cause it always takes forever and I want to get going tomorrow
"Stephen": You should make the plan for both of us, so they can be in sync
chlnaturester: you don't make any sense
I tell you I'm going to make our meals more balanced and you say you want your own meal plan- THEN you tell me to make one for the both of us
there *blink* it's done- I'm making us a meal plan that's more balanced- taDA!
"Stephen": I never said I wanted to make it. I said let's use that site
Go back and read the text
chlnaturester: well I think we should use some other site, or this site- or wait, th ey all say the same thing, so I'm back at the site I was at originally
This mypyramid site is too vague
"Stephen": I really don't really care about this that much anymore. Go make your list and I will eat whatever
chlnaturester: it's every time I bring up the meal plan you get all up in arms like I'm forcing you to eat tofu 5 days a week or something
"Stephen": I really don't really care about this that much anymore. Go make your list and I will eat whatever
chlnaturester: I always incorporate things you want to eat and all that- and you always fight me on it
"Stephen": All I said is I didn't think it made sense to put me on a preggo diet. That is all
chlnaturester: it was my mistake of calling it a preggo diet
it is a healthy, very well balanced diet that preggo women benefit from
I'm not a preggo woman
chlnaturester: but it is NOT made for a preggo woman
alllllllll right pretend this conversation never happened
"Stephen": I'm WAAAAY ahead of you
and it goes on from there....
Isn't he exasperating?! Sheesh

A blog post without me blabbing about my kids!Although it would help if I did something besides telling Paul not to touch something and if this damn pregnancy was over already (the inability to breathe, the chaffing, the heart burn, enough already demon spawn!).
So in case anyone's wondering (actually no one is)- I haven't done the RFS Blog Awards in such a long time because things have been uber hectic here. That and we're now on a super-tight budget and I refuse not to pay Karen for making me the awesome awards and buttons she always does.
So once I stop being so damn lazy and things are better money wise I'll start them back up. Of course I'm always open to award category suggestions. :)
Anyway, back to the chaffing.
You know your lady parts are a fucked up bitch (ha, no pun) when your husband asks you every day "so how's your cooter doing today?"
Being pregnant suuuuuucks sometimes.

Hectic days full of nothingIt's been so incredibley hectic around here and yet I still have nothing to blog about.
It's like my days are filled with stress and the unability to catch up with nothing to show for any of it.
I knew, even when he was in the womb, that Paul was a rumbunctious (sp?) little boy. The type to jump off the roof and go exploring in the woods. So as he's getting older and more confident in his motor skills he's becoming more and more like that. But with me being 9 month preggo he just wears me out!
Every day I go through that Bill Cosby routine of "come here... come HERE... here her here HERE!"
It's funny thinking about it now, while he's taking his nap and it's quiet, but as it's happening it's the most frustrating thing ever.
On the lighter side of parenting. We went to the Ren' Fest (again) yesterday. It's such a different experience when you have kids. Paul's not quite old enough yet to get any of the awesome toys; but Stephen and I would've never considered finding the petting zoo or riding the elephant, or stopping at the childrens' puppet show before Paul. There's so much more to the Ren Fest than we previously thought. With turkey legs!
So we took tons of video- enjoy!
I'm totally throwing video in, cause I'm too lazy to write any more. That and I'm tired
Paul dancing and loving the puppet show:
Paul LOVES drums- LOVES them. He taps on them differently to hear the different sounds they make. I think Stephen's secret wish came true.. hehe
He could ride that thing!
Woohoo elephant rides!

Ho HumI have nothing to blog about.
We're switching Paul from a crib to a toddler bed- and I'm tired.
The upper inner part of my right thigh is all chaffed so I smell like diaper rash cream.
And really that's all there is. Well except I've been playing my Asylum house in the Sims a lot.
As soon as something exciting happens you'll know. Though it'll probably be a while.
If I were to ever have another baby shower I think I'd want this cake. It's just TOO funny:

FinallyI couldn't take photos with Stephen while I was preggo with Paul- obviously, since he was in Iraq.
I can take photos of myself- by myself- but let's face it they suck.
So finally I wrangled Stephen into taking photos with and of me this weekend. So here they are- finally. Real preggo-pop photos!

I think sometimes he uses the word No for the word Yes....
