A Little of This and That on Thursday

I changed the title of my blog because I will probably turn into that woman who inserts tidbits here and there about her kid...now that I'm going to have one. A little less coffee because contrary to popular belief that caffeine does absolutely NOTHING to the alien growth in your belly, it has been known to produce children that are hyperactive. I stopped drinking coffee as soon as I found out I was preggers. I solidified that resolve when I was 13 weeks and I saw it waving its little hand on the screen like it was experiencing an acid trip. Any kid with this much energy, this soon, doesn't need caffeine help.

You know how some people will blog obsessively about their significant other, almost to the point where they have convinced you that they don't love the person, they're just obsessed? Well, I'll try not to do that about my pregnancy/Babybottoms. I know how irritating it can be to go to a blog you read on the regular ONLY for them to be talking about their significant other YET AGAIN. I can only imagine some people are like that about their kids...like I said, I'll try. I don't think it'll be that hard to do considering, I don't write about the father of my child like that LOL.

Anyway, everyone say hello to Babybottoms. Hopefully, I find out if it's a boy or girl on Monday but the dad affectionately deemed the bun in my oven Babybottoms until then so that's what I'll be calling him/her until further notice. He/she will make random guest appearances, being that he/she likes to take over my life and force me to do what's most comfortable for them. Like right now...I have a desk full of work to do but for some odd reason my concentration is seriously thrown off and I can't manage to do anything but type meaningless banter. Blame the kiddo.

Moving on...my last blog I stated that I was looking for a BB gun to kill maim some birds. I spoke to my dad and it is times like this I wish he lived closer. I'd just go to his house and borrow his and that would be that. Plus, his BB guns are far better than I had imagined! I was looking at this mini uzi at Walmart...I would show a picture but my job be hating on weapons searches and threw up a firewall when I tried to save the picture. Anyway, the mini uzi shoots 130 FPS...my dads BB gun...shoots 600 FPS. Like I said, I'm not trying to kill these irritating suckabutt birds...with 600 FPS, someone's going to bird heaven. Of course he wasn't shooting birds with his...he was shooting dirty azz cats that used to spay our balcony. Trust me, THESE cats deserved EVERY BB in their hide. I referred to them as Satan's little henchmen cats. Anyway, I think I'm gonna get that uzi this weekend...although, my dad suggested I try an owl first because birds are scared to death of them. Not a real owl folks LOL. One of those gnome like owls that just sit there and look creepy. He also suggested I research bird calls...ummm, he was starting to do too much at that point so I cut that conversation real short.

Next subject at hand...I should be officially finished UNpacking this Saturday. My favorite volunteer who has rightfully earned her spot as Auntie (in my book; for the kid) will be coming over this Saturday to force help me to finish. I think this chick was Superwoman in another lifetime. Far be it from me to bestow unnecessary kudos but seriously, this woman is great. We live a good 35-45 minutes from each other and I promise you she has helped me more since I been pregnant than some folks who live 5-10 minutes from me. Words cannot express how grateful I am that she is a living, breathing soul who genuinely cares. 

Next...I have a date with the beach coming up real soon and I can't wait. It wasn't a planned trip but it is/was much needed. I'm going by myself but I'll be meeting up with a friend once I arrive at my destination spot and my goal is to spend as much time laying on the beach as possible. As soon as I step foot off the plane, I'll be looking for food and sand. Since I can't drink at the moment, I'll also be looking for some virgin daiquiri's somewhere too. It is only going to be a weekend but the relaxation I plan to get cannot be compared to anything else at this point. I'll take what I can get, plus, I have to save as many vacation days as possible for when Babybottoms makes his/her grand entrance so no long trips until next year.

I think that's it for now. I had a more uniformed and theme filled blog written but for some odd reason my computer wants to act a donkey and reload pages I didn't ask it to...so I lost everything I had written. Therefore, this will have to do for now...hope everyone has a good Thursday!

Bee: I'm almost done with all the books...you better hurry with that autobiography LOL

msdailey: thanks...Babybottoms has lots of nicknames already and isn't even here yet LOL

No. 5: you're the best!

Craig: I figured if we continue to refer to the baby as something "cool", I'll have a cool kid and not some irritant I want to lock in the closet LOL

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
