Good Bye 2011.

I have learned two valuable lessons in 2011.

1. Make sure every person who matters in your life knows it.

2. There is no such thing as cryproof mascara.

Wishing my friends and family a year full of health and happiness, and keeping those who need it in my thoughts and prayer.

My Heart is Heavy.

Today is a horrible day. Our family is now facing one of the saddest things we have ever had to deal with.

Our phone rang early this morning, with a confused friend who had heard a terrible story. I was quickly phoning around, praying that it wasn't true, but it was. Cody has lost a childhood friend, a groomsman, and a great influence in his life.

Our friend Dan was called to a fire early this morning as a volunteer fire fighter. The fire was not something that would have been considered more dangerous than many other calls he had been one, but for some reason, today, Dan was taken from us. Today also marks 2 months since his wedding.

We have never had to deal with something so huge, and painful, and I hope it is a long time before we ever have to again.

We miss you already Dan.

It's Reached the Point...

I have 14 weeks to go, and I already miss having a space between my thighs, bras that fit, and pants with buttons and zippers.

This baby had better be as cute as the last two.

I may be fat, but you're inappropriate.

Fair Warning:
The next person to see me in public and say "Christmas Baby?", will be rammed with my shopping cart repeatedly.

I am pretty sure if my house looked as bad as my van, my children would be removed from my care. I feel like I'm driving around in an episode of Hoarders.

Facebook Faux Pas

Its bad enough when you run into someone you've deleted from your facebook for being a whiner.

Its even worse when they ask you about it.

Can I get a "Hell Yeah!"

I get to show up at my 10 year grad reunion with more than just stretch marks and a van full of kids.
I'll be framing my certificate and taking that with me too!
Thank God I made it, I'm done!

Pregnancy Woes. Do not read unless you want to feel sorry for me.

I have a serious back ache.

I sure would love a hot bath, unfortunately, I have the world's smallest tub, and with this weight gain, I feel like I would need to Crisco my hips to ever get back out.

Living in the Ghetto

Reason #987 I love our neighbourhood.
While driving down our road today-

Liv- " Mom, does S-H-I-T spell dog bone?"

Me- "Uh, no. Why?! Where did you see that?"

Liv- "On the car we just drove past. It said S-H-I-T, and then there was a dog bone drawn beside it"

I had do drive back around the block, to find out that was most definitely was NOT a dog bone. If I get a preschool drawing home with that kind of "dog bone" on it, I am burning down that neighbours car.

I am tired. Reminding me doesn't actually help.

The next person who greets me with, "You look so tired", has to take my kids for a full 24 hours while I sleep.

Consider yourselves warned.

Here we grow again.

Welcome back 20 lbs. I sure appreciate you joining me again, and bringing 3 of your friends.

Ugh. Looks like I'll be spending some time with Jillian next year.

I'm going to start to stink...

If you run into me, and I look like I haven't showered, it's because I can't. My kids can't survive the 10 minutes without supervision.

Last week Pierce wandered into the bathroom wearing his hockey skates (thank God for laminate flooring). I had to wrestle him down on the floor, pregnant, naked and freezing, to get them off.

Today he walked in wearing a brand new pair of Etnies. This wouldn't have been such a big deal, had they not been wrapped and under the Christmas tree.

Name that baby...

Probably won't ask Liv for baby name help again.

Not that Snooky isn't a good name for a baby, but it worries me that her father is letting her run the remote when I'm not home.

Tell it like it is.

I guess I'm not hiding my bad mood as well as I thought today.

Liv- "Mom, I would rather lay in a bathtub full of lava or let Pierce beat me up with a hockey stick than hang out with you when you're this grumpy."
