House Arrest

I am now a officially on house arrest. Why is that you say. Well, I am now 28 weeks pregnant and because of some complication.(see Velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord and Vasa Previa) They told me girls were more complicated but I didn't anticipate it being so obvious so soon. So I am throwing myself a pity party today. No not really but I am anticipating my poor two year old getting really sick of being stuck in the house with me. Any great suggestions on things to do with him that will not exert too much enery on my part.

The handicap of cell phones

I learned today what a handicap relying on cell phones is. We went to the zoo and were supposed to meet my friend and her daughter. Well we talked before we left and she said she would call me when she got there. I got in the car and forgot my phone. Which by the way I still can't find. When we got to the zoo there were a ton of people so we went and saw some animals then went to the guest services and asked to use their phone. I called but of course with the modern convenience of caller id she didn't recognize the number so I left a message of where we were going to be. I remember a time when you actually had to make plans instead of just saying we will call each other when we get there. Sometimes the "convenience" of cell phones can be a real problem!!

Kangaroo Zoo

I took Jake to this place called Kangaroo Zoo it is so fun. Everything is blow up slides and toys so it is all safe. He is really brave and went on the "really big" slide over and over again. It is a great way to get all of his energy out. He fell asleep a 9 o'clock which is amazing for him.

Something for you

Something for YOU!!

Something just for you! Lucky you!The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year. (might be a little while)
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your face before a masque. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Good luck!

retraction sort of

So my sister Jill was really offended by the my last post. She said it was way too stereotypical as she doesn't do any of the things in the post. (not that I really believe her because she did grow up in the same house as me). But this is my official asterisk for the previous post It applies to me and I only claim that it applies to me so if you are a woman and you feel it doesn't apply to you please put my name in place of woman or women.

The truth about Women

9 Words all Women use:

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'. That will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying get lost!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

Thinking about having a new baby has started to make me realize how fast Jake is growing up. Look how little he was not very long ago.

A few days late

So I forgot to write for a couple of days while we were in Rexburg visiting my family. We had a great time. All of the cousins came and we played at Wada and Grandpa's and we got to see Kevin play 3 ball games. We got back late Saturday night. Then yesturday we watched the super bowl with my sister and her husband. GO STEELERS. I was the only one cheering for the them. Everyone else wanted the Cardinals to win. It was a really good game. Today we went to lunch with my mom and go to go pick up Jake's new accessories. His glasses. We went to the eye doctor last week and the doctor said he is losing vision in his right eye because it is much worse then the left so the brain just takes the image from the better eye. I took some pictures but I will post them tomorrow. He doesn't really like to wear them but hopefully he will get used to it.
