A Few Christmas Snapshots

This is my ever so sweet niece, Eva.

This is my ever so sweet hubby holding baby Eva. I think he kinda likes her.

This is my silly nephew getting his first set of golf clubs. He can't wait for Uncle S to take him to play!

I don't really get into politics, and I don't get into world issues here. But I am glad to read this.

I'm Here...if only for a second

Sorry guys, I've been tired. Oh, so tired. Christmas is so exhausting. I didn't even have Christmas with my dad until tonight. More details about all the Christmas fun to come.

Oh, the hubby got me a Sony Handycam for Christmas. YAY!

* I drank orange juice Christmas morning. Seriously, big step since the whole orange glucola glucose test incident. I would have preferred milk, but the parents don't buy whole milk, and I just think it is a sin to drink anything but the milk that is full of fat!

Saturday Sound Off

Ahhhhh!!! I'm almost done wrapping presents. I have been wrapping for nearly two hours today! Some I HAD to wrap today because Mr. S and I and having Christmas with them tonight. We are going to Blue Angel's mom's house tonight. It's been a tradition ever since she and I have been friends.....for 15 years!! That's weird to say.
I also had to make sure I wrapped Mr. S's gifts. He is so impatient when it comes to giving me gifts. He wants to open our presents today. He said he wanted his to be the first one I opened. Who knows why? I actually have NO idea what he got me this year. Usually, he inadvertantly gives me too many hints and I figure it out. He has been very quiet this year. I'll let you know.

On another note, Gosh, are my ribs sore! Baby S is always moving and kicking them. I was so sore last night, it was difficult for me to fall asleep. It's so tricky getting comfortable in bed. You should see all the pillows I use. I guess I'm lucky to have to whole bed to myself so I can be comfortable. Oh, and the joints. My feet and knees crack every morning as I get out of bed. The swelling is minimal. I notice it in my hands and feet. Otherwise, doing pretty good for a preggo!

Happy Saturday.

Wow, I feel much better today. I don't know what the deal was yesterday. I just felt yucky in general. But after going to bed at 8:00 last night and sleeping until 8:00 this morning, I'm feeling pretty good, stiff, but refreshed.
I didn't wrap a single present yesterday like I had planned. Yea, it's the 22nd and I still have more than half of my gifts to wrap. I have NEVER waited this long. After my doctor's appointment, I did bake some cookies. Well, they came from a box, but they turned out good.

Also, here is my 34.5 week belly shot!

I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Sorry to be so brief

Said I would let you know how today went.
The doctor said everything is looking good still. I'm slowly putting on the pounds. I'm at 125, started from 99 lbs. My iron supplement is still agreeing with me. Oh, and I'm not sure I will be able to see the cup next time. I mean, you're bent over the toilet, trying to pee in this little cup with a big ol' belly, all while trying to keep your balance. It's interesting.

I haven't really felt well today. I still went out for a couple of hours with my sister. We went to, as Kelli, puts it, the crackhouse. Actually, Target wasn't that bad. It was crowded in the toy section, but otherwise it was okay.

T minus two weeks and one day until my last day of work!!!

Blah, Blah, Blah

Wow, I have absolutely nothing to say. I guess I'll just shoot some bullets.
  • School is out. GOOD!
  • Work is busy, busy. My last day will be Jan. 5!! I want to be lazy a few weeks before Baby S comes.
  • I keep eating these darn sweetarts from the basket that SillyHily won at the shower and gave to me. I lurve sweetarts!!
  • I haven't wrapped a single Christmas present. I will this weekend, I promise.
  • Dave and I haven't gotten each other presents yet. He knows what he is getting me, but I have no idea what to get him.....anyone?
  • I got my sister this, and it turned out so precious. My mom has one for each of us, so it is a sentimental thing.
  • My sister doesn't read this.
  • Mr. S and I will be cleaning the house this weekend. It is not a pretty sight right now, and that, my friends, is driving me crazy. Yes, it says Mr. S and I. He helps me and is actually very good at it.
  • For anyone that has heard the overplayed Hinder song "Lips of an Angel", well, now there is a country version of it...not so good.
  • I'm still eating the sweetarts even though I keep telling myself "okay, last one"
  • Really, these are the last three.
  • Seriously.
  • Over the holiday season or while I am off from work, I want to make a scrapbook of my and Blue Angel's trip to NYC this past March. I am so proud of us, being in New York, alone, two girls, and we did it, of course, not without a few unexpected, not so good detours, but we did it!
  • I would love to go back to New York City! The plane ride, no so much in love with.
  • I haven't eaten another sweetart.
  • Who cleans their big ass grill at 7:00 in the morning...oh, wait. My neighbor does. Mrs. S does not to be woken up by stupid noises. Yea, he was doing that this morning and was apparently cooking all day. WTF, it's December. Yes, it was like 70 degrees, but still.
  • Christmas is ten days away.

Good night, y'all!

Dooms Day

Help me. I have to go to one of the most dreaded places on earth. Wal-Mart. I hate Wal-Mart. I hate the chaos, the crowd. And at Christmas time? I must have lost my mind. (Actually, it appears Blogger has lost it's mind. I can't hit the "enter" button to go to the next line. Retard.) I plan on making the trip to Wal-Mart this afternoon. I seem to have abused yet another space heater into quitting. This makes the third space heater in a matter of 4-5 years. I hate being cold, therefor I keep a space heater in the bathroom. I can't put on my smell good lotion without my heater. And just as I am able to tolerate my smell good stuff again, darn it. And why Wal-Mart? Well, they probably have the biggest selection. Yes, I am picky about my space heaters. I know, just accept that I have my little quirks. This not being able to go to the next line business is driving me crazy.

Shout Out

First, I want to send a big THANK YOU to Blue Angel for throwing me a great baby shower! Love you!
Second, another THANK YOU to Casey, Hily, Margarita, Kim, and Stefanie for coming to the shower and bringing Baby S gifts. Seeing you girls really meant alot. Y'all are wonderful people.
I got a lot of great gifts. More later. Right now, my back really hurts and I'm exhausted.

Good Night.

Ode to the Man

Trustworthy and loyal. Very passionate and dangerous. Wild at times. Knows how to have fun. Sexy and mysterious. Everyone is drawn towards your inner and outer beauty and independent personality. Playful, but secretive. Very emotional and temperamental sometimes. Meets new people easily and very social in a group. Fearless and independent. Can hold their own. Stands out in a crowd. Essentially very smart. Usually, the greatest men are born in this month. If you ever begin a relationship with someone from this month, hold on to them because their one of a kind.

I got an email describing people born in each month. I only read mine and the Mr.'s. Above is what is said for the month of November. Mr S. is a November baby. And that is why I married him. Not so much what is in small print, but what I highlighted in bold.

Yabba Dabba Doo!

My new daily vitamin

Well, the doc said I had to take some iron. My hematocrit is low. So, since I think the problem is me taking iron too close to the time I take my prenatal vitamins, the doc said to stop taking my prenatals and take the iron supplement (which has a few other vitamins in it too) and to maybe take a children's chewable tablet. So, I'm hoping that if I take my Flintstone's in the morning and the Repliva (iron) at night, maybe I can tolerate it. Cross your fingers. Flintstone's vitamins are yummy at least.
Everything else is fine. My belly is measuring fine, too. The weight, I'm up a total of 23 pounds at 33 weeks and Baby S is head down, so she is positioned fine so far.
OH, and my sister says she already has clothes to pass down to me that Baby Eva has grown out of. Baby Eva is one month old today! She's gettng big and still beautiful.

Christmas is Here at the S Household

What do you need to put up the Christmas Tree?

One bowl of Christmas M&M's

One Dog in "his" yard (we fenced off a section of the backyard just for the boy)

All My Children on TV in the background

The tree assembled (whoever invented the pre-lit tree is a genius)


I like my tree with an eclectic mix of ornaments. Many from my childhood, some fun ones, and a few traditional ball ornaments. I admit, it's a little lopsided at the bottom, but whose tree is ever straight anyway?

Merry Christmas

Why Do I Need a Title?

Once again, I must direct you to Stefanie's page. Read it. Seriously. It may be just what you need. Thanks, Stefanie.

Let's change topics here. I haven't made mention here about the in-laws. Why not? Probably because I try not to think about them. Mr. S tries not to think about them. Right now, he is headed to a funeral for one of his great Aunts. He never asked me to go. I offered though. But, I am still fighting the sniffles, and he knew I wouldn't want to go anyway. That makes me sound bad. But, I know but a few people on his side of the family. Mainly, because he doesn't really like his family. They don't share the same views, morals, etc. This goes for both his mom's side and his dad's side. I can think of two uncles that Mr. S associates with. One is a golfer, the other was practically his father when he was a child.

Since Mr. S doesn't do much with his family, including his parents, I don't know much of them either. Fine by me. I'm kind of partial towards my own family anyway. But, Mr. S is too. He's told me.

The big problem may arise after Baby S is born. See, the in-laws, they smoke like chimney's. No kidding. If you looked up chain smokers, their pictures would be the epitome of chain smokers. I can't even describe how thick with smoke their house is and how they reek of smoke all the time. Hell, they can't even carry on a conversation without struggling. Every other word is followed by a hacking up of a lung. It's awful! And gross! And ya'll, his mom once smoked under.the.table in a non-smoking section of a restaurant. I was so pissed!!

And I don't want my baby in that house.

I refuse to purposefully take my daughter into that environment. Read it everywhere, there is no safe amount of cigarette smoke for babies. Even if they didn't smoke while we were there, the smoke lingering in their house would be bad enough.

This hurts Mr. S's feelings. I know it does. I'm hoping that once he holds his little girl, he will want to protect her more than anything in this world, including from cigarette smoke. He seems to believe we can take her over there. I say, not with her little bitty lungs. They can come to our house whenever they want. They know they cannot smoke in our house or cars.

This topic has not been brought up to the in-laws yet. I'm dreading the day, but it has to happen, right? I'm not being irrational, am I?

Because I Was Tagged (Which thrills me!)

And I need a post for today. So, here goes.

6 Weird Things About Me

1. I mentioned this before, but I must mix my peanut butter and jelly together in a small cup before smearing it on the bread. The ratio of peanut butter to jelly has to be just right. I taste it to make sure. It looks pretty gross, but I love it! OH, and I eat the crust off to save the middle and best part for last.

2. I keep chapstick with me wherever I go. I have some in my purse, in my labcoat pocket at work, on the bedside table, and in my bathroom. I am addicted to chapstick and I am picky about it, too. Carmex is what I use the most, but I have some Burt's Bees in my purse.

3. It's hard for me to sleep in the bed with somebody. Strange for those who don't know me. But, Mr. S works at night, so I get the whole bed to myself. On the weekends, I have to fall asleep before he comes to bed or I can't go to sleep.

4. I wear thongs. I love thongs. No, that is not weird. What may be weird is the fact that when I change for bed, I change into full bottom panties. Anybody else have two sets of panties?

5. I love homegrown, ripe tomatoes. Give me a tomato, salt, and a paper towel and I am good to go. I eat them like an apple. Man, now I want a tomato.

6. I don't like mayo, ketchup, mustard, relish, anything like that on my sandwiches. I don't eat cheese on my hamburgers, pickles only. I love, love, love tomatoes, but hate cooked tomatoes in sauce and stuff. Like spaghetti sauce, I'll pick out any chunks of tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, etc. Philly cheesesteak sandwhiches with meat and cheese only, please. I'm a pretty plain food person.

I don't know how good my list of weird things is. I can't really think of much right now. And, I don't know that I can tag 6 people that haven't already been tagged, but Blue've been tagged.

Don't Be Too Hard on Me

So, I'm not so good at keeping the commitment alive of posting every day. Last night was Blue Angel's brother's wedding. Knowing both the bride and groom makes a wedding so much sweeter. I love weddings anyway. I like going to them, seeing the excitment of the moment, the emotions, and listening to the vows. A little romantic at heart I guess. Oh, which reminds me, I need to remind Mr. S that it is less than 20 years until our renewel of vows for our 25th anniversary. LOL!
I'll let Blue tell you more about the wedding weekend, and maybe she'll post a picture of me and her at the wedding.

I'm still fighting this stupid cold thing. It's been a week now, and I'm pretty tired of it. The sneezing, the runny nose....ARGH!!! Plus, I want to go visit baby Eva, and I can't because I would hate to get her sick.

It's Sunday. Time for house cleaning and shopping.

This Counts

I did not intend to stay out past midnight, so I am counting this post as Friday's. Short, but sweet. Here is a picture from the event tonight.
