Well the reunion thing is over and done with. I couldn’t get away from the unavoidable. Blah. I think what erks me more is that they don’t discipline that hyperactive son of theirs. I mean, he’ll start running around then my kids will run. So I get after my kids, sternly say, Please stop, people are eating, there is hot tea and coffee being served this is not the time to do this. Mine will stop then animal boy, starts it right back up with his parents completely ignoring him and talking about themselves and I’m all like will someone tell that kid to stop. It got to me enough that I was much happier leaving and not having to get after the kids. It’s not fair to me or the children. For people that are desparate to have more kids why don’t they pay attention to the ones they have? Anyway, I got that out of my system on to other things.

Big Brother tonight! Yay, I can’t wait to see what goes down with the nominations. I hope it’s Chicken George and Janelle.

Over at Silly Hily’s site, she’s started a whole question and answer thing. Basically you’s ask, I answer. So I thought I’d give it a try, if you’s have any burning questions out there for me, I’ll answer em. 🙂

Tonight is the start of a week-end long reunion for hubby’s family. This should be intersting. LOL. Tonight is the “meet and greet” it’s a wine and cheese for everyone to get together. I’ll be taking the kids for this one. I don’t plan on staying long and don’t see the point of getting a sitter for such a short period of time. Tomorrow night is the dinner and dance. We won’t be going to the dance since I don’t have a sitter. I asked the girl that I always get to see if she’d be available for that night, but of course her boyfriend is coming home on that same day. So there goes her. Anyway, it should be an ok time. Just hoping I can dodge a certain someone.

Wednesday night we went to the drive in and saw Talledega nights. It was pretty darn funny. I love stupid funny movies and that ranked right up there! haha. The second movie playing was Miami Vice. Well I went to sleep shortly after it started, wasn’t very appealing to me.

Yesterday, I had to go shopping to get the baby some fall outfits. She’s outgrown most of her things, and the weather has really cooled off. So she’s got a couple of cute things. I just can’t bring myself to buy much when I know she’ll grow out of it so quick. I sooo wish I never gave away my old stuff from my last daughter. :*(

I’ve been doing really good on the whole weight loss thing. I’m down 6 lbs now and hubby is kicking my ass at a whole loss of 18lbs. But I’ll say, he had a lot more than I did to lose. I usually take the baby for a 2 mile walk each day, but I think I’ll try 4 miles today. It’s a nice break just me and the baby.

The baby has now changed from an easily content baby to one that must be entertained and played with. A lot. LOL. She’s too funny. She’ll yell for attention from her sisters. She’s rolling all around now, from tummy to back, back to tummy. She eats like a horse. Loves her cereal. Hmmm, she “talks” all the time. I think she’s cutting teeth too, she’s chewing and drooling everywhere, but her gums feel like something is just there, ready to cut through. I sure hope it happens soon for her. She definately has her cranky moments. Her sleeping has changed again too. She doesn’t get a really good sleep like she used to. She wakes up tossing and turning in her crib about 3 times a night, where before she’d sleep pretty much through. So something is bugging her. Poor baby.

Ok, Big Brother is definately getting interesting. I have a feeling Erika is going to reak havoc in the house. Although I think she’s pretty close to Boogie, their target may just be Will. I’m glad he made it this long in the house though, it provided for some entertainment. I just don’t want Janelle to win. There’s something about her, she’s just gotta go! Anyway, we’ll see Sunday what shall happen.

Anyone out there that watches RockStar: Supernova, I was really surprised at the whole behaviour that was shown about Dilana the other night. Wow. I wonder if this will affect her votes. I mean you can’t deny she’s a great singer and would be great for the band, but with all the talking behind people’s backs, the public may have a different point of view.

Well must go soothe cranky butt, since she’s woken from her nap. Have a great weekend. 🙂

What is one thing that I cannot stand in the whole world????

It’s cleaning blueberries. Let me explain. Hubby’s aunt calls me up last night saying she’s got 2 big buckets of blueberries and wanted to know if I want them. I said, Ok, she’s like I’m going to bring them up to you now. She lives like 2 seconds away. So here she comes with one 10Kg bucket and the other one a 12.7Kg bucket. Yah, here’s the catch, the guy that gives them to her “rakes” the berries. There’s more f’in leaves, rocks, twigs, bugs and flowers in the buckets than there is blueberries.

So this afternoon I start on my mission to clean these bastards. My house is so damn hot that they are already starting to get soft. So I’m picking through them and I’m getting nowhere. I have slop all through my hands, I’m getting those damn berries on the floor, it’s just a big friggen mess. There’s nothing I can’t stand than doing something as tedious as that. I am grateful for the berries, but hell I have no time to clean ’em. Everytime I go near them one of the kids start buggin for something, then the baby starts, blah. Hubby and I had a good laugh anyway. I should have known there was a catch to 2 big “free” buckets of berries. 🙂

Well I finally made a decision as to when to go back to work. I got a new job on an orthopedic floor and when the unit manager called to tell me I had the job she mentioned how I am off on maternity leave got the job to fill in for someone that just went off on maternity leave. haha. Anyway, I said I’d go back sometime in January, since that’s when I have to start re-paying those hateful student loans back. Hubby is going to take the rest of the parental leave off to stay home with the baby. I realize how fortunate we are to have such a long time off with our children after reading other people’s blogs, so I am EXTREMELY lucky I was/am able to stay home for as long as I did with her.

I mentioned before how I have 2 jobs. One at the hospital and one at a nursing home. Anyway, when I handed in my sick slip I told the staffing lady that I wouldn’t be back until after I had the baby. She’s all like when do you think and I said October. Our original plan was that hubby and I would share the parental leave but hell I like staying home so he’s getting a little less. Anyway, the crazy staffing lady calls me up Wednesday saying she’s got me booked in to work Oct. 5th, 8th, 12th and then I’m like, HOLD IT, my availability totally depends on hubby’s schedule. I can only work when he’s off. AND I can only take one shift and see how bad it dings my EI, because if I make too much it’s not really worth working. So I am booked in for Oct. 3rd night shift. Oh how I love the nights. Have I mentioned before how I LOATHE them! Anyway, we’ll see how it goes, there are probably a bunch of new residents since I was last there.

Tuesday we took the baby to get her pics taken. They turned out sooo cute! I’ll post some when I get them back in another 2 wks. I couldn’t be bothered to pay an extra 20 dollars for the cd rom of the pics, so I opted to just wait it out. They were expensive enough. After we got the pics done we took the kids school shopping for supplies and bookbags and all that fun stuff. Little E starts school this year, she was super excited to get her supplies. It’s too cute seeing her pick out all her things. Of course we got the mandatory things on the list.

SIL did it again, managed to piss me off royaly. I had said last year before I bought the van how I’d like a 4 wheel drive SUV, 7 passenger. Well guess who’s getting one? BITCH! I have to say it’s very nerve wracking living so close to the in-laws. And she’s such a ditz, like we all know she’s super horny to get pregnant, since I just had a baby, and for someone that doesn’t want people to know, she’s dropping far too many hints. So I’m not a genious, but I suspect that she’ll anounce her new coming arrival fairly soon. Ugh. She has her kid in hockey and she’s been bugging my son, NOT ME, MY SON, she keeps asking my 6 yr old son, to go into hockey. Now, the whole prospect of me lugging a 6 month old baby, along with her 5 and 10 yr old sisters and then getting all that hateful gear on, not to mention skates in a cold ass rink does not appeal to me whatsoever! The boy is quite content in not being in that sport, but bitch face has to go to the source and try and convince him to take it. See what she’d expect me to do is take her hyperactive kid there too, along with my 6 mos old, 5 and 10 yr old. So here we go again. I need to find a tactful way to say, leave me the hell alone. If anyone has any advice, lol.

I went off my prednisone last week and ever since then have had a nasty rash on my hips, neck, arms and legs. I think I may go back on it to see what will happen. Never a dull moment in my life. lol.

So we actually went out. Alone, no kids, just us. Before we even left the house my son decides to announce that he feels “sick”. I think he was just saying that so his dad wouldn’t leave because he never mentioned it again to the sitter while we were gone.

First we went to a newer restaurant that we’ve been meaning to check out but knew we’d have to do it with just us, as it is one of those expensive, non-kid friendly types. Anyway, I ordered the special which was haddock stuffed with lobster with linguine and lemon-garlic butter sauce. Oh it was pretty damn good and came with apple crisp for dessert. I couldn’t eat all the dessert since we are trying the damn diet thing.

After we had our dinner, I of course had to call home to make sure the baby was ok and to check in on my boy. He was fine and not complaining. The baby had just finished crying her ass off. She of course had her moment where she was gonna fuss until she cried herself to sleep. The sitter said that may have only lasted about 10min. So not too bad. We can leave the house without baby and she will survive 🙂 YAYYY for us. lol.

Then we went to the movies. I wanted to see Talledega nights but hubby wants to wait and take our son to see it. He’s been bugging for the longest time to see that movie so we couldn’t go there. Urgh, men. Anyway, we finally agreed on John Tucker Must Die. I didn’t think I’d really like it since I figured the previews gave away most of the movie, but surprisingly enough I was still entertained throughout. I enjoyed our little outing. I of course missed the baby the entire time and couldn’t wait to get home to pick her fat little face up!

We got home about midnight so I woke her up when we got home and I fed her and the little darling slept until 7:30am. 🙂 I was pretty happy.

I watched Big Brother last night. I couldn’t believe that Janelle got HOH again! Damn, I want to see someone else get it. It was pretty good. I wonder who won that new thing, I bet it was Danielle her guess was pretty good. We’ll have to wait and see.

Well must get to bed, I’m freezing my butt off here, listening to my dog bark her butt off and I just want to sleep.

Here’s a pic of us taken on our wedding day. 🙂

So tomorrow is the big 7 year anniversary. Amazingly enough hubby got the day off of work. Yay 🙂 We are going to celebrate tonight though since his mom will be close by incase the babysitter needs some help with the baby. Yep, we are actually going out ALONE without the baby. I’m nervous of leaving her alone with the sitter but the baby needs to be left with people other than us. We plan on going out to dinner and to see a movie, that’s if baby lets us go. Last night my mother in law was over for supper and the baby wouldn’t go with her, she’d just cry and cry, then when she was in my arms she’d stop fussing. Ugh, I’ve managed yet again to spoil another child. Why must I do that??

Baby had her checkup on Wednesday. She now weighs 15lb 11oz and is 24.5 inches long. She’s in the 90th percentile for weight and 50th percentile for head circumference and her length. She’s a healthy little nut. 😉 She’s trying to eat my arm as I type. hehe. Anyway, she got 2 shots at this visit and she didn’t cry at all. I was amazed. She has been kind of off the last couple of days, so I attribute her crankiness to that.

Big brother is great! I love the crap that’s being stirred up in the house, and can’t wait to see tonight’s episode. Of course I’ll have to see it after I get home around midnight. Hope I can stay awake.

Am I the only one whose husband trys to use a backrub to initiate sex? Just curious. LMAO!~
