Things I should probably shut up about....I should probablly shut up about marriage.
Not mine mind you.... but I have only one bit of advice for every single married couple I know. I tell them to get to know yourself and your new spouse as a married couple. Before you have kids. Dating and living together are not the same.
But I should stop telling everyone that. It seems our society has gone back to thought of "get married and pop out a kid 9 months later." Ok sure accidents happen- I mean my dear friend Katy was knocked up at her wedding (trust me, they were on the pill and using a condom, it was an accident haha!). But I think if she could wait just a little bit before having her (3 amazing) kids just to spend time alone with her husband she'd do it in a heart beat.
Ok, I've only been married 6 years this year (wait, is that right... I dont know) so I'm in no condition to really give advice as though I'm some old married lady. It just seems me the "young kids" of today who are getting married have the attitude of "I know what I'm doing!"
Yes, ok. We know- you're an adult. Which is why I need to shut up about this- just let them do it however they want. I guess I'm still stuck in a time where advice from someone who's been around the block was appreciated.
(btw Katy- I never thanked you for the tip on getting the Lanolin cream while breastfeeding. My god lady you saved me and my poor bloody nipples! I love you forever for that).
It's not like I'm not the type to be stubborn and want to do crap my own way- I guess I just need to learn that damnit there are other ways. People are wrong for doing things other ways... hehe just kidding.
I mean I hated when in high school some douche bag came up to me and told me how out of style or date or... whatever. And I wanted to say "who the fuck cares? Shut the fuck up asshole."
I don't follow the latest trends and fashions- because it's total bull. Remember how fanny packs were just the most geekiest and god awful thing on the planet? And oh dear god we swore we'd never wear them! Yeah, they're called "belt bags" now. *eye roll*
My attitude towards fashion has been the same my entire life- I might be out of style now but just wait 10 years and I'll be in styl again. I'm not going to be some sheep following around a mass of dumbfucks when I can just stay with what I like and wait for them to come to me. If I had to be that into fashion and trends I think I'd shoot myself.
Sigh- marriage advice to fashion. I sure do know how to blog one direct though huh?

damnI wrote a blog last night in my head while I was falling asleep and I don't remember what it was about.
I think I was half way writing a blog and half way dreaming about The Guild so it was probably a jumble of nonsense.
In other news Lord of the Rings Online is totally going Free to Play! Yay! So you need to play and join the Lndroval server and look for Everilda- that's me!
Oh! I know what I want going to yap about last night! Ok I totally had an OCD melt down. Thursday is supposed to be our reading night so I set myself up with a bath- complete with milk and baking soda (I have a sunburn!) and got my book.
And then. The stupid ass bathtub. Wouldn't stop tapping! omfg!
I don't have non-digital clocks in my house. Why? I fucking hate the ticking. I can't sleep, I can't think with that tick-tock tick-tock going on.
So for some reason when I'm in the bath the pipes or something behind the wall ticks, or drips, or... just makes noise! So I had to ditch my bath and leave the room before I took a sledge hammer to the tub to find the cause of the noise.
I hate you stupid ticking noises!

Now that we've told everyone...this pregnancy seems a bit more real now. And it makes me depressed.
Depressed that this is and will be, no matter what, our last child.
We talked about it and both agreed it would be for the best that 3 is "enough." If we had more we'd either have to sell te new ones to keep the house or all live under a bridge. So Stephen's going to get his tubes tied.
And the way I feel right now is not his fault- this was a mutual decision- but I feel like something's being taken away from me.
Oh sure- if I wanted I could go have more kids with some random stranger in parking lot behind a Chilis. But um... no.
This is the last child I'll ever have. There's no chance of another. I might not want anymore but the thought of not being able to is depressing.

did you know that if you're on a small break from the "pill" you can get knocked up....Apparently you can.
We've actually known about this since the end of April. We're due December 28th.
Another Christmas baby! The ONE thing we never really wanted- and now we're goin to have 3 of them. This is obviously m punishment for being so anal about schedules.
So all those posts about not being ready for a 3rd child yet were completely true. We were planning to talk about number 3 in about 2 years. So imagine our surprise when I found out I was knocked up. We're, sort of, settled and used to the idea now. Of course this may put us into debt. Way way wayyy into debt. Of course most of that isn't entirely our fault. I mean, I need to pay my doctor around 300$ a month- that doesn't include lab work or anything like that- that's just me sitting in the room for 20 minutes only for her to come in and ask how I'm feeling. I know how the fuck I'm feeling- I've had 2 kids and (now) 5 pregnancies. Do I really need to pay you 300$ for me to verbally tell you what I know?
(yeah ok, any ideas on how to cut down all these stupid expenses please share).
Of course we're happy about the new baby. It's a blessing in disguise. A big, ugly disguise.
We're actually hoping for a girl- start off not being able to afford her! Hahahaha!
Considering this is most definately our last child I want a little girl. Of course I'll be happy with another boy. I love my boys. And I'm not one to say "blue for a boy pink for a girl," but trust me this house needs more pink.
We'll find out the gender at the end of July. Poor Stephen has the supreme task of being there with/for me if it turns out it's not a girl- lol.
Ok, this blog makes no sense I'm just blabbering on all over the place.
Long story short.
Yes, we're pregnant due at the end of December.
Yes it was quite a shock.
Yes we're happy about it.

I seriously need a life.
