I went shopping today. I bought Bloodrayne for the XBox for $10…yet to play it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looks like a good stress-relieving game though…LOL. And I also bought myself a new mug for all the tea I’ve been drinking recently. I couldn’t resist it, it was adorable and coveed with kitties ๐Ÿ˜€ This is a picture of it:

Since I had yesterday off work, I underwent some major R&R. Nick bought home two movies from Blockbuster- The Brothers Grimm and Cinderella Man. TBG is a major disappointment. But CM was awesome! I am tempted to buy it, it was that good.

My friend Todd might be giving me some work on Sunday, so I’ll be making a cool $100 for four hours work. Woohoo! ๐Ÿ˜€

And finally, this is my YouTube experiment. Not too sure about the contestant, but yeah, she’s good. Her name is Katharine McPhee ๐Ÿ˜‰

And now I’m off to kick some butt with Bloodrayne! Ciao! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So I ate the pancakes. He tempted me with pancakes spiced up with vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg…and they were good. I broke a little bit of Nick’s plain pancakes off and gave it to Abby…dunno if we’re not supposed to give her pancakes to eat, but she as able to gum it and swallow it down. She wanted more afterwards, but we wern’t sure if she was supposed to be eating them in the first place…so we said no to her.

We also ended up have a loud conversation about cooking while he was making the pancakes. I told him he was a good cook and everyone should be jealous that I have a husband who is a good cook. And this is what followed:

N: “So I’m just a good cook, not a great one?”
M: “No, you’re a great cook, you’re like my dad. He’s a good cook even though he can just cook the basic stuff”
N: “So I’m a basic cook?”
M: “No, no, NO! Argh…why do I even bother…?”

Talking about pancakes, I saw the IHOP offer last night for all-you-can-eat pancakes. It was 1am. I was not about to make myself pancakes in the zombified state that I was in :p

I feel shitty today. I am unbelieveably tired and my appetite is down the drain, I just don’t feel like eating. It’s crap. I honestly think that I am going to call in to work this evening and tell them I’m sick. I have to work with the ad agency tonight, and they are nice people and everything…but they’re just very impatient and get pissy at me if I don’t get their drinks to them quick enough. I just feel like I could get back into my pj’s get back into my nice cosy bed and go sleep for the rest of day. I havn’t felt this way since Abby was born. Nasty.

Nick’s trying to coax me into eating pancakes. Sure I love pancakes, but I’m just not hungry. And we ate pancakes for breakfast yesterday (yes I know it’s past breakfast time, but I’ve not had the chance to eat yet). I’m gonna give it a few minutes. Knowing my luck, I’ll smell the pancakes cooking, and I’ll want some, LOL.

I ordered a couple of new batteries from eBay for my new camera. I’m keeing an eye on the tracking, so hopefully they should be here in the next couple of days. Then I can go downtown and finally take those photos that I keep meaning to. Don’t worry, I’ll be posting them here as soon as I take them ๐Ÿ˜‰

This house is a MESS. I have just felt so shitty recently that so much stuff has gone undone. I managed to feebly push the vacuum cleaner round the other day, and I finally put the VCR back in the entertainment center last night- but I have an ever-increasing pile of dishes to do and a few loads of laundry to wash. Maybe if I make myself a nice mug of tea I’ll feel better…

I am seriously tired tonight. I am considering on having the day off tomorrow, because I am that tired ๐Ÿ˜ฆ My legs are feeling a lot better now, so I guess that’s better than nothing.

I’ve been checking out all the info about taking Abby on the bus with me, and it’s going to be really hard, I have to buy her an extra seat if I want to take her car seat with me. So all in all, two seats would cost me about $300….and I don’t have that kind of cash. So maybe I can work something out and I can just go by myself. I know that Rhonda is expecting her to be coming with me, but I just don’t think I can afford that kind of money. Besides, having a kid and a ton of luggage to cart around by yourself is not going to be my idea of a fun trip ๐Ÿ˜‰

I feel as though my legs have been switched with someone else’s. My calf muscles are messed up, I can barely walk. So today, nick has been showing me how to do some stretches for them and I took a hot bath too. I have to take some Motrin before I go to work this evening- but I am feeling a lot better. I’ve been pretty much lounging around for last couple of hours watching TV. And I just put Miss Abby down for a nap, so now I have some time to get ready for work and type this blog entry. I’m typing now, because I know that I won’t have the energy when I get back from work later. I love jeans and t shirt day….hang on that’s pretty much everyday, LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

So the new sheets on the bed are really nice and soft considering they’re from Walmart. Nick complained how warm it was in bed last night, pfffft. It’s always too hot or too :p I personally slept like a log last night, in fact I think I slept too long, 10 hours. Ah well…back to six hour stretches for me tonight :p

Some dumb people in the street have still got their Christmas lights up on their houses. It’s almost February people! And I know their Christians, so it’s not like they have an excuse. Stupid people. I took mine down weeks ago- January 3rd. I don’t get it, are they just lazy or something?!

Nick wants us to take a trip back to the UK to see my parents in October. I’ve still not got my visa info sorted out yet, and I don’t want to run the risk of not being allowed back into the US. I’m saving at the moment to save some money for going to see Rhonda in March- Oklahoma. We’re hopefully going to be going to Checotah- the home town of Carrie Underwood as she only lives about a half hour drive from it. I’m gonna be taking Miss Abby with me, it’ll be a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to it. I still have to plan it over with Nick, but I think he’ll be okay with it. I hope. We’re gonna take a Greyhound bus down there, the ticket is going to cost me about $150, but I don’t have to pay for Abby because she’s under the age of 3. So that’s always a money-saver ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll be taking my camera with me so I’ll get some great photos and I’ll upload them when I get back ๐Ÿ˜€ Since it’s almost the end of January, I just have February to save for it. Hopefully, Nick will give me a bit of money from the tax refund to pay for the trip ๐Ÿ˜‰

And so, the weekend has finally ended. Not that I did a heck of a lot- I went to Walmart to buy laundry detergent, dishsoap and new bed sheets. Oh and the grocery store to buy more grub for Miss Abby. I’m telling you, she eats like a pig and you’d think that she doesn’t put on any weight. It’s ridiculous. I can feel the eyes of all the other parents in the waiting room at the doctor’s burning into the back of my skull- all because she’s a tall, skinny kid. Well, excuse me that my daughter isn’t the jolly tubby, roly-poly baby. At least my baby is cuter than yours. Ner ner ner ner ner! :p

And yes, I buy my bed sheets from WALMART. And no, before anyone says it, I am not white trash. When your husband sweats as much as mine does, then come and tell me you don’t need cheap bed sheets. Besides, having a baby means that you can’t buy bed sheets from Crate&Barrel or wherever it is that you fancy folk buy your housewares from. Bugger the lot of you.

I’ve discovered that Abby is a mini Carrie Underwood fan. It’s hilarious. When she hears her singing, she squeals and then gets up and starts dancing (well bouncing around) to her. We were watching the NFC Championship Game between the Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Seahawks and Carrie comes on TV singing the National Anthem. She squeals and starts dancing- TO THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. I think the insanity torch has been passed ๐Ÿ˜€

I need some more tea. And I’m cold, but I can’t go to bed yet as I have to wait for the new sheets to come out of the dryer. I am one of those kind of people who buys new sheets and washes them before using them. I just don’t like all the starch in new sheets, and you never know what kind of germs are on new sheets fresh from the shop…oh Lordy stop me now. I’m turning into my mother. Eek.
