Robin says she likes it


She must be smoking crack! Here's a pic of the dreaded hair after it has dried and shrank. I feel like I am fifteen except I have a nice silver streak going. Should be fun at work tomorrow!

I need a real hair dresser



It probably seems strange to some people, but I have been going to Smart Style inside of Walmart for 8 years. Its convenient, and most of the time the hair cut is decent. Since my hair is curly, I don't really get too caught up in it being even. But my favorite lady left to start her own business. I should have just stuck with her, but I can never seem to make an appointment or think ahead. That's why Smart Style is so easy.

So I go there tonight to get my hair cut and I am thinking of going pretty short. My first clue that i was in for a bad hair cut should have been when she tried to comb through my hair dry. Hello! Curly hair needs to be cut wet. Ok so I tell her she needs to wash it. We go to the sink and she is killing me in the washing. Pulling tugging, just so painful. We make it through that and go back. I tell her that I want 2 inches off. My hair was layered and I ASSUMED (Stupid me) that since it was already layered, she would keep the layers in the trim. I didn't say anything about NOT wanting layers. Ok so she cuts my hair but cuts it all the same length. I ask her, umm, can I get my layers back? She goes Oh you want layers? Duh bitch!

She starts layering in the back and I am a bit shocked at how layered she is doing it but I figure hey, change is ok. She spins me around to do the front so I can't see. When she spins me back around I am SHOCKED. It's SHORT! And it's longer in the back. It's dried by this point so it looks like a cotton ball. I ask her to please put some mousse in it, I still have to go shop in the store. So she does, and I am just freaking out at how bad it looks. It's HORRIBLE. I make it through the store, but when I get in the car I just lose it. I keep thinking "How am I going to go to work with this awful hair?" Luckily it's just long enough to pull pack in a pony tail. SO I get home, cry on David's shoulder, take and shower and style it the way I usually do. It is now a little better but still crazy short. I still think mullet cuz of the length in the back. But I think I can at least live with it. I would drink however, if I wasn't knocked up!

On a happier note, my friend Shauna from Phoenix came to visit today. We had such a great time. We went and ate Thai food. That was delicious, and we just hung out for awhile. I forgot how much fun it is to hang with her. I wish she lived closer.

I forgot to add, I am really disgusted with the way people get caught up in shopping for Christmas deals. It's bad enough that people camp out in front of stores to get a cheap TV, but today a crowd rushed a walmart and killed a worker. They just flat out trampled him. Is it worth it for that $400 flat screen? I don't think so. It's just so sad. I'm not even religious and I see that we have lost sight of the meaning of the holiday. People should be more thankful for the family they have in their lives. I know that sounds so corny, but I am tired of getting stressed out trying to buy "good enough" gifts. Any gift is good but Lush is better! Bad Alexis.

I know what she means!

I love to read dooce for many reasons. She is freaking hilarious, especially the blog about taking Coco to herd sheep, but also for my Daily Chuck. She just announced her pregnancy (EDD June 14th, wonderful day!) and her post today is about how food is just so good. I can totally understand that. At first I couldn't get enough spaghetti sauce, it was the most delicious thing ever. Now I have moved on to OJ. It's the only thing that gets me out of bed some mornings. It's almost orgasmic!

I ran into an old friend this weekend and was so happy to spread my happy news, imagine my surprise when she annouced she was expecting twins. I felt this momentary sadness. I have to say that while I am very content with one child, actually relieved, I still feel sadness over the loss of the other twin, and over the loss of that special status, I guess. I think that having twins would be too much for me to handle, but at the same time, it would have been really awesome, especially if it was one boy and one girl. But that is past and can't be changed. But I didn't tell her what happened because I didn't want to inject pity and sadness into our conversation.

I am 13 weeks this Thursday. Yeah for second trimester.

12w2d = scary


This is a belly shot from today. I hadn't eaten TOO much by this time but still some. I blame the hummus.

I am done!

With PIO shots. No more nightly shots in the butt that leave knots that take weeks to dissipate. No more dreading every night at 9 that I have to be STABBED in the ass! I am so excited I can barely stand it!

11 weeks


Here we are! It's the 11 week belly shot. Looking so fabulous in green!

Not much to report

Things are just going along. I took a belly shot but it's still on my phone. I have to email it. I find the belly shot this week a little scary. I think maybe it was just too much food. It just seems to have grown exponentially. I know that will happen but it just seems way too soon.

I am still behind in my grad school. I am hoping to get the last chem assignment done tomorrow. Then I can focus on writing my paper. It's not due until Friday so I have some time. Well, it's totally time for bed.

If I were stuck on a deserted island, I would die!

Because I have the worst time making a freaking fire!

So it's a cold windy day here and I decide I would like a fire. David isn't home yet so it's totally up to me. So I clean out the fire place of ashes and put wood in there. I recycled the newspaper earlier today so I used old cell phone and electric bills. So I put lots of paper in there and light it up. Lots of smoke, no fire. I try this a few more times, I have to open the door and turn on the fan so I don't suffocate. No go.

So I go outside to search for an axe so I can chop some small pieces. I find an old axe with a loose head in the shed. I try to chop a piece and drop it on my foot. Fabulous. I choose a smaller piece and manage to get it into two smaller pieces. YAY! I take my two pieces of kindling back into the house and try again. I do manage to get those two pieces started and I decide to peel my pomegranate. So I go in the kitchen and get it peeled and put into a bowl for snacking. I put the bowl on the toaster so I can clean the counter, but the bowl falls and spills seeds into the space between the fridge and the counter. SHIT! So I pick up some of them, and drag out the vacuum to get the seeds. Ok, now the fires out. CRAP! So I put another piece of wood on there and MORE paper. Finally I get a true fire. So now I am enjoying a nice fire, some pom seeds with my gassy dogs.

It waves!



We had another ultrasound today and we got to see the twinkie. You can now make out a head and we saw a little arm waving. I am happy to report that it was an abdominal ultrasound. I hope never to see the dildo-cam again! We got to hear the heart beat and I have to say that is the most amazing sound ever! I cry every time. That's like the vaildation sound.

I am posting the new pics, it is starting to look less like an alien so that's a good thing.

Now even though I am thrilled beyond belief that the twinkie is doing good, I have to say that I hate my chemistry class. Mostly because I have no idea what is going on. I try to keep up but it is so far over my head it isn't even funny.

Finally

Election day is here. I can't wait to see what happens. I know that I will not be able to stay up late though so I will just have to wait until tomorrow.

I got called for a drug test today. I freaked out because I was totally behind in what I needed to do. I called and told her that I just couldn't make it, that if I lost my district license then so be it. She is letting me go in the morning. It's good because I get to sleep in but it's bad because I have to go to ST in the morning, got back to Chapa, then in the evening go back to ST for a 5 pm meeting. Then I get to go home. I think its about 175 miles tomorrow. Blarh!

I am very excited to have the ultrasound on Thursday. I want to see the twinkie again!
