If you aren’t into the whole Flickr thing, this is my new favourite photo of Miss Abby. Haha. How cute is this?!

I’m currently waiting for Nick to get back from running errands so I can get off to work and go to Qdoba for dinner- I’ve fallen in love with their chicken nachos…mmmm ๐Ÿ˜€

Abby has got really talkative recently. She’s started saying things like “no”, “up”, “yup” and she accidently said a mild swear word…so now we’re having to watch our language around her :p

I really don’t have a lot to say at the moment. I’ll think about what to type up while I’m at work and after a beer or two, haha. Hey, every working mother needs some alcohol to relieve the stress :p And I don’t care what you preachy alcohol-free people out there say. It is not evil, it is not a drug and it is not addictive if you do it in moderation ๐Ÿ˜‰

My brother on the other hand…well, I’ll save that for later.

I have really nothing new to report at the moment, but what do you think to the new blog layout? I got bored with the grey and decided on something more cheery ๐Ÿ˜€

Still in school. Secondary school- that should give you an estimate on how young I am, hehe ๐Ÿ˜‰

What were you doing 1 year ago?

I was heavily pregnant and ready to pop. Abby’s EDD was March 23rd, but she decided to say ‘hi’ on the 1st instead ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Abby’s napping, so I’ve got the chance to type something up before she wakes.

I was reading a book yesterday d it said how when kids are napping, you ought to do something for yourself. Hmmm, so what have I done? Dishes, laundry, putting away stuff. It is for me though. It drives me CRAZY if I don’t get it done. Nick likes to pile the dishes on the top of the fridge, and it just bugs me when I cannot find any plates for dinner…ha.

I learn’t last night at work that I only have another four weeks left at work. No, I’m not getting fired, I work at a bowling alley and I waitress for the leagues- and they all end in four weeks. And I doubt that I’m going to get re-hired for the fall. I’m 99.9% sure. I’m the best waitress they have ever had (I’m not just saying that, I have had the bowlers tell me this), but I’m not what management are looking for. Fucking bastard wants a big-titted, blonde, porn star with very little clothing waitressing. Yeah, like he’s gonna find someone like that who’ll work for $6 an hour..ha. Good luck with that smart ass.

I hate tax season. Every year we have problems, because of some small screw-up. Last year it was because I didn’t have a social security number yet, this year it’s because we need to file some kind of Homestead form which the landlord has to sign. Gah…stupid IRS ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Just a quick entry with some photos of me playing my new guitar (yes, I bought the guitar). I’m really not that good at the moment, I know six notes, so don’t ask me to play anything ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve been looking into lessons this evening, to give myself a head start ๐Ÿ˜€

Just before I go and take a shower I think I’ll do a quick recap of what I’ve been upto recently ๐Ÿ˜‰

Abby seems to be getting fussier and fussier recently. It’s like she started her ‘terrible twos’ a year early! She constantly demands to be picked up and held- even when I’m busy like trying to cook dinner or something. She hates being in her highchairr, she makes straining, grunting noises like she’s pooping or something. Haha. And she has no interest in sitting still. If I’m half way across the house and she’s sitting quietly, playing with a toy- she’ll decide that she doesn’t want to play anymore and comes to find me. And when she finds me, she grabs onto my pant/jean legs and hangs off them until I pick her up. And if I walk away, all hell breaks loose.

I think I’ve taken Tylenol twice today because she’s screamed so much ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I’m also considering on buying a guitar, so we’ll see how that goes. I maybe picking it up tomorrow if I like the look of it. If not, the cash will be going towards an external hard drive for this piece of shit computer, :p

I’ve decided that I’m going to take a break from the internet for a while. I’ll still be blogging, but just not as often. I’ll keep you all updated. I’m just dealing with some personal demons at the moment and I just need a break from all this.

Thanks for listening ๐Ÿ˜‰
