Happy Thanksgiving!

I forgot to take pictures of the Thanksgiving frivolities on Thursday. I feel a little bad, but at the same time, I forgot, so I don't feel horribly bad. Overall, the food was good, the people were great, and I got so stuffed I had to force myself to eat yesterday because of bloating. It was a good visit. :)

So in some other Thanksgiving news, I thought I'd share with you all something I was thankful for. Some of you already know about this from other random means, but for those of you I don't talk to on a regular basis here it is:

Drew and I are going to have a BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeup!! It's pretty rockin! On this past Monday, we had another ultrasound and got some fun pictures

I'm not super far along, but far enough along that hopefully the nausea will subside soon (I hope) So here's some pictures for you to enjoy!!

Look, you can see the hands!

They were all sorts of wiggling around, it was pretty awesome

*There is only 1, I just have so many good pictures, I couldn't decide which to use, so I just chose 2. I was a little bit bummed that it isn't a seahorse anymore...especially since I bought THE CUTEST seahorse outfit in the WORLD! But oh well, I'll save those for when someone DOES have a seahorse....

I might puke

Today, one of my little kiddies got diagnosed with a head lice infestation.
Ever since, I have been scratching the jeebers out of my head. I need Drew to check me out cause I have totally paranoided myself out. Yuck. I love this little kid so much too- they're soooo stinkin sweet, and I know they have no control over it once so ever. Poor kid.

We didn't have any more lice shampoo at school, so our sweet secretary gave them some regular stuff and told them to wash their hair really well. The little kid said they didn't have any shampoo at home, and was so excited to get their own little bottle of shampoo. So sweet, yet so stinkin sad.

I told our secretary that if this kid comes back to school tomorrow with issues, that I will personally go buy them some anti-lice shampoo and help them wash it out at school. It's been a CONSTANT problem for at least 2 years now, and I just don't think it's ever been taken care of. What's worse is that this little kid seems to be so used to it, it doesn't ITCH anymore. :(

So parents out there, do me a favor- check your kids hair. Check it often- cause I sure hate sending home those fliers that say that live lice has been found in our classroom. I also hate having to sanitize the whole classroom and then do it again for a solid two weeks until the problem *maybe* is over. It's time consuming, and my time should be spent planning for activities, not wiping down headphones, scrubbing chairs, desks, spraying literally every surface, pulling books out, wiping shelves, etc. I just can't handle it!!

Anyway, so that's that. Being a teacher sure is fun!

Taking a break

I've been playing Super Mario Bros 3 all day today. I felt like trash this morning, so all previous engagements were canceled. (I thought canceled had 2 l's in it. weird...yet another word that doesn't follow the CVC rule) Anyway, I have been playing this blasted game all day today, and feel as though I have gotten no where. I started on about mid level 2, and am now on level 5, and have started over more times than I can count.

As you can see, I'm about dead again. I get through these boards with some kind of miracle and then throw all my guys away on some stupid stuff. So here I am, FREAKING out again, so I thought I'd take a break. This is all thanks to one of my students that said he was having trouble getting past a certain spot on his S.M.B3 game, and I was like- oh man, I want to play that!!!!! So here I am. I end up leaving my cpu on at night so that I don't have to start completely over.

Also keep in mind, I do have all 3 warp flutes, I just wanted to get a chance to actually play the game all the way through without using them. I'm not too sure how it's going though.

Part of me feels like I'm going to have a heart attack at any second. I don't kow how in the world we played these games when we were little- amazing!

Some good news though, is that my nausea seems to be waning- at least for the time being- I'd say it's been hanging around for 7-8 of the past 10 hours rather than a constant 10- so that's good, right?

How Pathetic! LOL

Survey, survey, survey!

Drew's at the law school writing some dumb paper, so I'm stuck home, alone. Not even a pedi appt. set up! P.a.t.h.e.t.i.c. - So here's survey instead!

8 Things~~~

8 T.V. Shows that I like to watch

1. Grey's Anatomy- man, I have been SUCKED in

2. The Office - if you don't want this show, somethin is seriously wrong with you

3. Battlestart Galactica - I can't wait for this to start back up again, they keep teasing me!

4. King of the Hill - I don't watch this often, but listen to it quite a bit when Drew watches, and I find it pretty amusing.

5. Flip that House - is that even on anymore? We haven't had cable in a year and I miss it.

6. Good Eats - Alton Brown in my cooking hero

7. The Jetsons - I don't think they're on anymore, but I sure loved watching them.

8. I have others, too. :)

Favorite Restaurants:

1. India Palace - this is my favorite by default since there are only TWO Indian food places in Salem. I sure love me some of their lunch buffet though!

2. Fuji Rice Time - once again, by default. I don't know of any other acceptable sushi places anywhere near here.

3. McGrath's - I love their crab...mmmmm...!!!

4. Fathom's - Thank you Tamara for enlightening our eyes to this wonderful, brilliant, delicious place! LOVE IT!

5. Papa Johns - I know it isn't a place you go eat, but it's the best gosh darn pizza in the world!

7. Diary Queen - I really just like their Oreo Blizzard.

3. Exercised

4. Cleaned the ENTIRE HOUSE!!!!! wooo! I haven't done that in probably almost 3 months.

5. Ate lunch

7. Played Mario Bros 3, got frustrated since I can't remember how to get the flute on level 1, board 3- even though my goal is to play every single level. :/

8. Chatted and texted

8 Things that I Look Forward To:

1. Not feeling sick

2. Drew working so we have some more money

3. Cutting my hair after K.'s wedding

4. Going to Hawaii- sort of- the packing part really blows

5. Longer days, not longer nights

6. Thanksgiving to see my niece! (and nephew...and I suppose their parents, too...) :)

7. Christmas Break

8. Being a mommy

8 Things on my Wishlist (now you get to see my greedy, worldly side)

1. Exact change in my pocket for everything I buy in an endless supply

2. A car- doesn't even have to be new!

3. To not have to work- stupid student loans

4. To be more easy going

5. To be able to travel where I want, and have someone else pack for me.

6. To have a house on the coast

7. To have a detached house- not a condo

8. a puppy!

News Update!

I started cleaning the house 6 hours ago, and am FINALLY finished. This place was a disaster, and I cleaned it ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL (except inside the fridge). I even filed papers and mopped under the bed and couches. I feel pretty accomplished. I also exercised! I guess maybe it only took 5 hours, cause I'm thinking that was an hour of it.

Anyway, just thought you'd like to know. That's my life of excitement and therapy session for the time being.

I sat at work today thinking and for some reason, old school chat programs popped up in my head. I sure loved those things. We got a computer that had internet when I was 14, and I think I chatted on there for quite a while, almost every single day. I met a lot of people on those chat programs, and I honestly don't think any of them were crazy old men. If they were, they did a pretty good job of it, I suppose.

The first one that I love loved was FreeTel. That thing was the BOMB! You could "call" people and they could choose to answer or not. You could also leave a "message" at the top of the screen if you wanted to say something personal, etc. It was so fun!!! My friends and I had such a good time talking on there. THat's where I learned about smilies! :)

The next one that I loved was Chat Box. Chat box was a java based chat on some webpage. We spent quite a lot of time there jumping between rooms. This was before Yahoo had it's chat rooms even!

THEN, the best of all: ICQ. I think by then, I might have even had my own computer, and boy did I spend a lot of time on there. The UH-OH sound still could turn my head if I heard it. My cousin had a bird and it learned how to say UH-OH exactly like ICQ cause it hung out right next to it. It was hilarious! I even remember my ICQ number. Too bad everyone has gotten rid of it, cause man, I sure had quite the list on there. I doubt I'd even remember anyone on there though.

A few years after, AIM came out with their chat programs, and MSN, and Yahoo. I still have my AIM and MSN account, but I don't think I get on Yahoo more than once a year. The people on my aim and msn are quite a short group of people now. I think most online chatting has been changed over to MySpace and Facebook. I do like those though.

It's amazing how much technology has changed and morphed in the past 10-12 years. I love technology!

Don't let me down

I have caught wind of some new pictures that have been posted from the Twilight movie. These include "Edward" with a 5 o'clock shadow in them. In my opinion, vampires should have no need to shave, since they are, in a sense, timeless. Therefore, should it be assumed that facial hair doesn't grow? Or does it? I'm guessing head hair grows, just because I'm guessing they change hair styles and if one day you decided to shave it all off, you should have the option of having it grow back, right? But facial hair....really? ----ok, and if I concede to them actually having to shave, how often do they have to shave? Can they grow a beard in a night if they feel like it? And definitely DO NOT get me started on their Laurent- vampires loose their skin pigmentation, how else are you supposed to figure out it's a vampire if they're still black? I mean, common! Be REALISTIC HERE!!!!! (at least powder the black guy up a bit, sheesh!- oh, and even in the book, it mentioned how Jasper was down in Texas/Mexico area and that there were these fair women, but had the facial complection of latinas, SOOOO, that proves right there that even if you are latino, you still lose the pigment- am I right, or am I right?)

AND is it just me, or does Bella looked cracked out? I'm worried this might deter from the actual film and make me frustrated. Thoughts?!

I sure hope it's not as corny as it has the potential to be. Please, please, please let it be a good movie!

In other news, Drew and I found this gigantic mushroom in our front yard today. I'll post pictures later. I'm way too sick feeling to get up and find the camera cord. So you'll just have to pretend you saw princess toadstool.

Speaking of Princess Toadstool, I found a nintendo emulator online last night. Drew calibrated the game controller so I could play with the controller rather than the keyboard keys. I found Super Mario Bros. 3 on there and have played for quite a while. I don't know how well I did when I was young, but I'd put bets on it being A LOT better than what I can do now. Part of it though, in favor of me, is that I have to use the swirly button thing rather than the d-pad to control it, so it is a bit on the looseygoosey side, so it IS harder to control. I got so fed up with world 7 pipe land that I ended up turing it off today. Bah. I'm glad it is around though! Now I just have to find the bomberman that was for the Super NES! OH, and Donkey Kong for that one, too!

I love these guys

I am all sorts of in the Christmas mood, ALREADY! I threw on the Pandora radio today with all sorts of Christmas music blaring through the house today. NOW I have to watch A Christmas Story.

My all time favoritest Christmas movie ever! I wish I had Ralphie's imagination- that would be rockin'. Well, that movie and ELF are quite close in ranks. I might have to watch that one too if I'm still awake when this is over.

Hooray for Christmas musics never ending supply!

I'm going to get this!

I found the raddest shirt today:

I think I need it. I don't even remember how much it is.

I got paid today. Yay! I love paychecks.

Sunday, November 2, 2008

I know what I'M going to be for CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

This says it all right here:

And the Green and Red tights? Yeah, they're one size fits all for only $3.99!!!!!! BEST CHRISTMAS COSTUME, EVER!!! FORGET HALLOWEEEEEEN!!! Christmas is the new best thing!

Today, during fast meeting, some guy got up, explained his prostate cancer surgery, and then proceeded to explain how there was this big drift in the ward between the old people and the young people, and how he now has a greater appreciation for the ward in general now that his prostate has been removed. THAT my friends, is a Fast Meeting at its finest!

Do you like my pretty picture?
