I’m pretty convinced that I’m pregnant now. I’m about 12 days late on my monthly cycle, I’ve started breaking out in places that I don’t usually, I’m eating like a horse, my boobs are sore and I keep having weird cravings for cornbread. I ate it with cheese today. Weird. I’m still going to give it till next Tuesday and then I’ll tell Nick. I hated telling him last time, and this time I’m dreading it even more. But for some weird reason, I’m really excited about being pregnant again. I guess I just like the thought of something growing inside of me and buying cute little baby outfits again.

If I am pregnant, I’ll announce it to everyone at my birthday party on the 8th. I announced it at a party last time, and it always seems the best way. Well, I find it’s the best way :p

I may be pregnant again. I’ve got sore boobs and the only time that ever happened before was when I was pregnant with Miss Abby. I’ll give it a week, and then I’ll have more news for you. Looking after two toddlers doesn’t sound like my idea of fun….:o

Well, I guess I must be one of the laziest people on the planet sometimes when it comes to blogging. But hey ho, I’m here now and while Abby’s eating her lunch- I’ll tell you what’s been happening recently ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been having some of the most bizarre dreams. Most of them include me working in a kitchen (I guess I’m a chef) and I’m cooking something weird like caterpillar or octopus….yuck! Then the other ones involve me sewing and everytime I try to thread my needle, I miss and stab myself in the leg. That NEVER happens. I keep on going in the dream until I’ve got these holes in my leg and the blood’s just gushing out. Yikes!

Thanks to Jennie– I think I’m going to take up sewing again. I’ve found a couple of patterns online for small soft toys…so I think I’m going to try them out. I thinkI’ll probably go to Joann’s and buy some material and stuffing today and see how it goes. I should really be using a sewing machine- but I guess I’m going to be doing it by hand since I don’t have one at the moment. Maybe it’s something I could look into buying with the birthday money my parents are sending me ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s Been A While… September 1, 2006

Sorry for dissapearing. I have no clue where I left off. I’ll just tell you what’s been happening recently…

– Abby’s getting more chatty as the days go by.

– My life gets suckier as the days go by.

– My weight goes up that little bit more as the days go by.

– I need to stop with ‘as the days go by’. Somebody stop me. NOW.

So Abby is now saying the following words:

hi, hey, hiya, bye, buh-bye, hah, cookie, yummy, nummy, yum, num, juice, shoes, keys, kitty, teddy, mama, mommy, dada, daddy, abby, baby, hat, cap, me, nose, hair, ear

That’s quite a lot. And suppodly she’ll know around 100 words by her 2nd birthday. Which is in 6 MONTHS now! OMG, it’s gone so quick. It’s already been half a year since her birthday. Damn.

I’ve been sitting in front of this friggin computer since about 9pm. I need to move my ass and do something, other than put Abby’s toys away. I also need to go through her clothes and get rid of a bunch at the rummage sale that the block is having next weekend. Her drawers are stuffed full, I can barely close them. Sucks.

I need a haircut. It’s looking all nappy and ratty. I cannot count the split ends anymore.
