Hey, if the Napper can do it.....

Nap Queen is famous for doing her posts bullet style. Being that I have about 50 things swimming around in my skull right now, I shall do that too.

- In less than 24 hours, I will be on a plane to southern Cal where I grew up to stand in a wedding for my very bestest friend, Wendy. I will be seeing a lot of people that I went to high school with and that is either going to be a great thing or a suck ass thing.
- I also get to see my Dad, Step-Mom, bro and sis. My parents and bro are invited to the wedding. Sister is coming down from No. Cal so that we can do her shower the day after the wedding because no telling when we will all be together again. I am excited to see her all knocked up. I will take pictures of the cute belly.
- Speaking of my sister the incubator, please say prayers for my niece that is currently in utero. It seems she is a tiny thing. Currently, she should be 4 pounds and she is 3. That does not sound like a big diff but when you are that little, it makes a major difference. Her organs and brain stem seem to be developing fine despite her size, so let's hope she is just petite like her mama. My sis is gaining enough weight but she needs to rest herself a tad more or the doctor threatened her with bed rest. Please explain to me why women keep telling my sister horrible labor stories? What the FUCK is that? It's called support ladies - look it the fuck UP.
- I am in a wedding in 4 days and have no shoes. Yeah, I am not kidding.
- As of today, I will be done with a major project that will change my work life in the next month or so. Still not ready to discuss it here yet, but I am so damn glad to be done with this that I may just dance a jig.
- We do NOT have termites. Apparently, a bad swarm swung thru my hood last Saturday night (the pest control dude knew this since he lives on the next block). The few we saw did no damage and just had come through some pipe or whatever into our bathroom. He saw no evidence of them setting up shop at all. I was so happy I almost humped his leg.
- We are, however, getting a termite contract soon.
- Gage finally got a bath. Poor darlin was smelling like a dog and that is NOT ok with me.
- My mother gets back from the Burgh this evening. The hubs is picking her up so that I can finish the packing and organizing for tomorrow since I have to be up at the butt crack.
- Nothing has changed with regards to the kids. The hubs is completely clear on where I stand on this issue. He is also clear that if he, even one more time, allows his ex-wife to run our life, I will leave and not look back.
- The MIL emailed the hubs asking why she does not hear from us. Apparently, once you become a widow, you also get amnesia. What the fuck ever, lady.

I think that about wraps it up. I need to do the work left on this project today, and then make one last ditch attempt at finding shoes and then pack and stuff. If I don't have a chance to post, y'all have a loverly Memorial day weekend and I will be back a week from today. :)

Oh I hope you have a WONDERFUL trip! Seeing the family again is always good TLC! And don't fret about seeing the highschool friends again - I am sure they are all just as nervous.

YEAH on the NOT having termites! That is such good news!

And way to go on that project!

I am all about the bullet points as well! Love them so I will give you bullet points in your comments:

-I am in a wedding next Saturday, still waiting on dress to be altered, need shoes and um still need a bra!

-Woman are bitches and they like to scare other woman. I will never understand that

- I am sure your neice is fine if her mama is petite that could be a very good reason why she will be. I will pray that she is healthy

- yeah for seeing friends and family!

- yeah for NO TERMITES...woo hoo

Have a great trip!

Have fun at the wedding and congrats to you sis on the baby!!

Damn. I wish you would have humped his leg. That would have been damn funny.

at 1:52 PM Blogger Nap Queen said...

Ah yes, the bullet pointed list--my favorite!! Must be due to the fact that I've created many a powerpoint presentation :) Hope everything is wonderful with your niece...That last bullet about your MIL cracks me up. Why do they think they can act however they want, and think we're still going to want to associate with them?

Well congrats on finishing the work project. You must feel so accomplished, not to mention relieved!

Ah, coming my way are ya? Enjoy the wedding and your family.

Oh, and thoughts and prayers to your lil' niece, too. Awwww...

at 3:57 PM Blogger The Kept Woman said...

Ohhhh! Have fun on your trip!!!

And I know you don't want to hear this b/c you probably hate the project you were on, but that feeling of accomplishment is so great. I miss that...really.

(keeping your niece in my thoughts!!)

at 4:05 PM Blogger Carrie said...

Hooray for no termites. although how cool would it have been to have your house covered in that big tent thing they use?

I'll send good thoughts to your neice to fatten up a bit!:)

I was warned to not share anything upsetting with any of my friends or sister while they were pregnant, yet they ALL filled me in on the horrors of childbirth afterwards, my tubes tied themselves. :)

have a great time in Cali!!!! :)

I hope your sis hears some good labor stories! Heres one to pass on:

My sister-developed a rash of some sort. Went to the ER, and was due in about 3 weeks or so. Apparently it was a pregnancy induced rash- not a big deal. Well, they wanted to start getting things going with labor. Said it would be about a week, but gave her some sort of suppository to start early labor. Well, as it happened, Tyler decided that NOW was the time- since momma was in the hospital and all. Less than 4 hours later, no pain, no drugs, baby came out! Healthy and happy.

Have fun in CA, enjoy and take lots of pics.

okay, great about the termites.
I don't know what it is about us women and our labor stories. I don't offer this when I see a preggo woman, but if she asks, which they usually do, then here I go. And I find myself listening to me talking thinking SHUT THE FUCK UP..... gawd.
Shoes, just go fetch some at payless and be done with it. Walk them in the store, make sure they are the most damn comfortable things you can buy. Nobody, and I mean nobody will worry or even notice your shoes at the wedding but you. Don't stress over it.
Glad hubs is on the wagon about the ex..... I don't know how you guys manage....
I'd kill her.

later, and have a GRRRRRREAT trip.

So Cali is sooo wonderful!
Now go get you some shoes woman!
