Lazy? Or Stubborn? You decide. 15

Lazy? Or Stubborn? You decide.

We just got back from our OB appointment and ultrasound. The good news? She’s practicing breathing, she’s got important body parts, and she’s measuring a tad big, but not obscenely huge. She weighs about 6lbs now, and since she’ll probably gain about an ounce/day for the rest of the pregnancy, she’ll be under 8lbs when she’s born. Not bad! The bad news? She’s sideways. For those of you new to the world of fetal positioning, we want NikkiZ to be head DOWN and ready to go by 38 weeks because at 38 weeks? She’s too big to really move anymore....

First? <i>LOST</i>. Second? My parenting breakdown. 22

First? LOST. Second? My parenting breakdown.

LOST was soooo good last night! First? We saw Sawyer, which is AWESOME. Second? They did an interesting twist and backtracked a wee bit from last week. Third? More numbers! And added together they equal 108! You know what THAT means don’t you? (Yeah. Me neither. But – EEK!) Yesterday was another parenting milestone for us. We dealt with our first DETENTION! Dun…Dun…Dun…Although, LilZ’s “detention” is actually called “Gumbo” (I have no freakin’ clue, don’t ask) and it is more like sentences and less like Saturday in the library with Emilio Estevez and Mollie Ringwald. It is the copying (by...

Please don’t run away.

There is yet ANOTHER story in the news today about someone getting “dooced.” That is, they get fired for writing things about their job (negative things, of course) on their blog. This is getting to the point where I wonder if people do it on PURPOSE because, really, who is still dumb enough to badmouth their job/coworkers/bosses on their never-as-anonymous-as-they-think-it-is website? Of course, not everyone can find as much excitement over writing about eating and watching TV as I do. So they have to resort to talking about their jobs. When, in reality? As much as I like my job?...

I wonder how long it will take to get hits for “ass zits”? 9

I wonder how long it will take to get hits for “ass zits”?

You know? I don’t really care a lot about stretch marks. First of all? I have NEVER in my ENTIRE life had pretty skin anywhere on my body. Not only did I have the puberty induced acne, (yes, I was called “Pizza Face” by a bunch of bastards, typical) but my entire body was covered with zits of some sort. Mainly? They were always on my arms and shoulders, but I was even known to sprout the occasional ass zit for good measure. Nothing helps an akward pubescent girl feel as secure as the occasional ass zit. On top of...

Of course. This entry can write itself now. 7

Of course. This entry can write itself now.

Damn. I’m late again. And MrZ? Still in bed, so I don’t feel so bad. What is up with us lately and the sleeping in during the week thing…are we hibernating pre-baby? Quite possibly. I’m VERY late this morning so I just wanted to pop in and post an entry so that no one started freaking about where I was. Oh, and to ask if someone could please make LilZ’s lunch for me and if someone else could maybe shower for me. Thanks. We watched House last night (I love that show) and afterwards they said it wouldn’t be back...
