Only one day late

Turns out I am lazy on Fridays and I didn't want to post. Apparently Dooce is the same way because she has stopped posting on Friday's as well. Now I have nothing to read when I get home other than postcardsfromyomomma.

Spent most of the day running errands. We got the paint for the baby's room and I got new hardware for the dresser and changing table. They come with wooden knobs but I got brushed nickel. That matches our bedroom furniture and I think it looks nicer. Once David paints the room then I will start washing things and putting it all together. I am getting really excited! We are below 100 days. I still think he's gonna come a little later. As long as I can make it till May 22nd. After that I don't care and he won't be a Taurus! Hahahaha

Here's 26w2d pics. Getting bigger that's for sure. I am noticing that he likes to chill out during the day when I am at work but definitely gets activea round 7 pm. And 5 am when the alarm goes off. Right now I don't wake up because of him. Of course that's gonna change soon.

Big fat cow

Had an appointment today at 410. This is pushing it since the bell rings at 330. I had someone cover my class the last five minutes so I could cut out early. Of course I got stuck behind someone on the gap doing 40 fucking mph. Bitches.

I got there just in time. Turns out the mpg on my car goes down a lot at 80 with the wind blowing. I got weighed and measured. I was happy that I had only gained 3.5 pounds since my last visit. Of course then she comes in and tells me that I am up 25 pounds total so far and I am not supposed to gain more than a pound a week. Sure that seems reasonable.

The funny thing was when I laid down so she could listen to the HB, he was seriously pushing on one side. So I was totally lopsided. It was funny. Then he started moving around so much we couldn't get a good heartbeat. Silly kid.

I am way too tired to take a pic today. I will try and post tomorrow.

Isn't it interesting that yesterday when Obama was taking questions, the first question from Old Man McCain was about a helicopter program that was started when BUSH was in office. Duh ass wipe, Obama didn't start the procurement of the very expensive helicopter. It was the previous idiot! I wonder if he knows how stupid I think he looked? Probably not, probably doesn't care! :)

She's suffercating me!

The cat that is. She is attached to me at the hip. She sleeps with me all night long. This shouldn't be a problem but when I move to get some space, she moves to get close again. I end up on the edge of the bed, usually on my back. And she likes to sleep on my arm so my arm is asleep. Last night she spent several minutes cleaning my arm for me. Great. I sit in my chair and she runs to jump and lay on me. Now understand I have to get up to go to the bathroom frequently. No worries, when I get back, she is ready to jump into my lap again.

Speaking of going to the bathroom, today has bee miserable. For example, I went before I got in the shower, I went right after I got out of the shower. I brushed my teeth and combed my hair. Went again. Picked out clothes for the day. Went again. Got dressed. Went again. Changed the laundry. Went again. Went to Sam's, had to go as soon as we got there but managed to hold out until we were waiting in line. Went while waiting (not in my pants!). Left and went to Target, Went in target. I mean seriously. I think this little shit is sitting on my bladder. It's crazy.

He's been moving around lot these last few days. It's not so much kicking as it feels like moving furniture around. I guess he is finding the room is disappearing.

You ate what?

Yeah this blog is going to an accounting of all the horrible things I put in my mouth today. Don't be dirty! It was a long day full of food that I hate so I had to improvise with whatever snacks I could find.

I started my morning with a fabulous bowl of Kashi heart to heart. The only "healthy" food I can claim. I had leadership this morning and a meeting this afternoon so I drove myself. OF course, Karen decided to have a sick day so I would have been driving myself anyway. This brings me to my next subject, I am so sad my Starducks closed. Now I have to go to the one by Sam's and they don't know me! And they are slow. So anyways I had a decaf grande soy latte. Ok, so far not too bad. So I drive to work only to get on a bus and ride to Anthony. They had breakfast burritos and I was very excited to get one, but I was last in line so I ended up with bean! I didn't eat that needless to say. Since I was hungry and the burrito was not going to work, I ate 4 fruit roll ups. Yummy. Ok so till 11 am the tally stands at:
1 bowl of cereal
1 grade decaf soy latte
4 fruit roll ups

So the meeting is going on and NOTHING is being accomplished. I am doing the crossword inthe corner trying not to get into trouble. Lunch is now being served. Guess what? Red enchiladas, spanish rice, BEANS and salad. So needless to say I skipped the BEANS and rice, had a 1/4 portion of enchiladas and a plate of salad, no dressing. Yum. Have I mentioned I am HUNGRY? So the kids take off to take a tour and I am sitting there talking to another teacher, no big deal. She leaves, leaving me and the fruit roll ups ALL ALONE. So I go over and put four in my pocket. There are also those 100 calorie bags of lays crackers so I eat one of those. It's super tasty so I eat another. The kids still aren't back so I eat two more fruit roll ups from my pocket and replace them with two more from the table. Luckily the kids return and the bus is there so we skedaddle. Oh I grab another Lay's cracker from the table on the way out the door! And I ate another fruit roll up on the bus. It's 1:30pm and the tally is:
1 bowl of cereal
1 grade decaf soy latte
7 Fruit roll ups
plate of salad (no dressing)
1/4 portion of red enchiladas
2 100 calorie bags of Lay's crackers

So I get back to school and I am feeling a little hungry so I head down to my room to harass the kids and get a snack. I grab two cheese squares and about 20 wheat thins. Snarf these down with a bottle of water and head out to do some observations. Fun.

I have a mentor meeting at 4:15 so I leave a little early so I can go to ...wait for it...TACO BELL! I get two gordita supremes with chicken and go to anthony elementary (Second trip to anthony today!). I eat my tasty gorditas and the meeting starts. Now remember this is the meeting where I got into trouble last month. I haven't quite decided if I am going to be DISRUPTIVE or just hang. No worries, she has taken no chances that the Chapa peeps are going to sit together. We have to draw cards and sit at that table. So I end up at a table ALL ALONE! Did she plan this? Seems suspicious. I eat another fruit roll up during the meeting because I am bored! She spends the whole meeting talking about how the last meeting was just so awful for her to live through and she makes us decide on NORMS for our meetings. So when you are misbehaving someone will look at you and say "FOLLOW THE NORMS!" Stupid. It's all directed squarely at us and I think it's so fucking amusing. Whatever, I am full of fake fruit and Taco Bell so bite my big toe beeyatch. The meeting is FINALLY over at 6 and I take off to go home. I decide to finish off the last two fruit roll ups and the back of lays. Tasty. I am home now and I refuse to eat anything else today.

Oh I can't forget my run to Albertson's to buy milk for Daveroni. I am in the selfcheck line and the lady in front of me is buying asparagus. She charges herself twice for it, so helpful me points this out nicely. Hey, you rang that up twice. This infuriates her and she glares at me like HOW DARE I SPEAK TO HER! What the fuck? Fine, pay twice as much for the shit see if I care.

Anyways the final tally is:
1 bowl of cereal
1 grande decaf soy latte
10 fruit roll ups
3 100 calorie bags lay's crackers
2 gordita supremes with chicken
1/4 portion red enchiladas
1 plate of salad (no dressing)
2 cheese squares
20 wheat thins

Can't wait to get on the scale tomorrow...

I am skipping 24 week pics and just using 24w6d as my 25 week pics. I got my maternity jeans today and they are freaking comfy! I also got a pair of panel pants, not sure how I feel about that. Ignore the fabulous polo I am wearing, it was for the meeting today. It won't fit again. Luckily I don't have another meeting until May 6th. By then it won't matter that the shirt doesn't fit.

Can I use febreeze on my dog?

Seriously because he smells! David trimmed the pine tree last week so it's leaking mass quantities of sap. Now Tater has sap on his feet, his sides and his butt! Damn dog.

Had to go up a bra size again today. I started this whole thing at 34 A. I am now a 38 B. It's so comfy though! I think that just means I am chunky like a monkey.

The kid continues to kick and kick. I was watching my belly last night and you could see it move when he kicked. I imagine him kicking, flying across my uterus and bouncing off the other side. Newton's laws still apply in utero!

I emailed my professor today a question. I totally misunderstood one problem and did the second one completely wrong. Looking back I slap my head and say D'OH!

Man my back hurts!

I totally cleaned the house today, scrubbed both bathrooms, swept, mopped, washed all rugs, the whole nine yards. Now I can barely stand up! Bessie is hurting too. We are quite the pair I tell you.

The water turtles went to live with Michelle's husband on Friday. I think he is taking them to work. I am happy they have a new home. I liked them, but man they were a lot of trouble to keep clean. Of course, they didn't care if they had a dirty cage but it bothered me!

The kid, 12K, is kicking like crazy these days. I can finally feel it when I am standing up. Gizmo likes to lay on my belly and the kicks and kicks. She gets this pissed off look on her face. It's hilarious. I tell her she's the one who needs to move but she just stays.

Well, here's the weekly photo. This is 23w2d. I think it's huge but people at work say it's not bad. Funny how they have changed their tune. Oh I forgot to mention how I gained 6 pounds in one freaking week. Now, I know what you are thinking mom, but I didn't have any Taco Bell durign the week so we can't blame that. I was crazy swollen yesterday and my hands are still big today but not as bad. I did lose 1.5 pounds when weighed myself this morning so that's good. I am trying not to gain a shitload of weight all at once. My skin is itchy from strectching so I can imagine what it's going to be like.
