And suddenly you're deep enough to lay your armour down [Jul. 17th, 2006|12:06 am]

[Current Music |Don't Wait - Dashboard Confessional]

So I had my first ultrasound last Monday and it's a girl! Bob and I can stop calling the baby "it" now. I teared up through the entire ultrasound and then when she said it was a girl, it hit me really hard. I am so unbelievably excited. I always said I didn't care about the sex as long as the baby was healthy but I started crying as soon as the lady told me it was a girl so I'm thinking maybe deep down I really wanted it to be a girl. She's been kicking lately... it's very subtle but it's still amazing.

Some other news, is that I'm leaving Aveda. I put in my two week notice on Friday. I got hired for a physical therapy position at Bethesda Rehabilitation Hospital in St. Paul. I'm really excited. And they're completely fine with me being pregnant, well obviously otherwise they wouldn't have hired me. I'm sad to leave everyone here but it's been two months since I graduated and I've been here five years so I think it's time to move on. I'm both nervous and excited to start my new job but I really need to stay confident and really look at the good side of this. For starters, the night shift is just too hard on me lately. It will be nice to work a normal day shift and just get some good sleep at night with my husband. And it's more money, it'll be like a nice big raise for me and it will be really nice for when the baby comes. I'm so ready to finish her room but we're trying to find a bed set for her that we like so Bob can paint the room because that's the first thing that needs to get done and then we picked out two nursery furniture sets that we like so once we paint the room and clean the carpet we can buy that and then the bedding set and I'll be happy for now. I just keep having dreams where all of a sudden, the baby is born and we have nothing for her... no crib, no car seat, and no bottles LOL... it's like my bad wedding dreams all over again where I'd dream that all of a sudden my wedding day was here and I didn't even have a dress or flowers or a cake LOL... I don't know why I dream such crazy things because I'm not even really worried, I just want to get it done.

Speaking of wedding, it's our anniversary this coming weekend. We're going out on Saturday so we can see Clerks 2 with everyone on Friday night. I can't wait! For both actually.

Well I really don't have much else to say right now. I bought Dumbo so I think I'm going to watch that. Have a good week everyone!

What comes first, the chicken or the sex? [Jun. 30th, 2006|12:10 am]

Okay, haven't updated this thing in a million years. For starters, my sister had a baby last Monday! Very exciting! She had a boy, Mitchell 6 pounds, 6 ounces. He is such a little peanut... so cute! I've seen him 3 times so far. I would go over there everyday if I could. I'm so happy for my sister and my brother in law... my sister finally got her baby! And I finally get to be an aunt!

As for jobs, I've gone on 3 interviews in the past two weeks. Honestly I'm hoping that they can look past the fact that I'm 4 months pregnant and that I'll need 3 months off in 5 months and hire me still, but we'll see. I'm not getting my hopes up or anything. It would just be nice. I can stay here at Aveda, it's fine. But it would just be nice to get started in a job that I went to school for ya know. But it's not just the fact that I'll need those three months off after I have the baby, it's that I have doctor appointments. I have two coming up in the next three weeks and I don't have to take anytime off of work right now because I work nights and that is really nice actually. And eventually I'll have to start going to the doctor every three weeks, and then ever two weeks, and then every week until I have the baby. That's a lot. It's a lot of time to take off at a place I just got hired at and I completely understand that. I guess I was just hoping that the staff would like me so much they would be willing to look past that, but I know it's not personal, it's business. They'd have to find a replacement for three whole months, that's a lot.

Anyways, I'm getting excited, I have an ultrasound a week from Monday. I honestly don't care what I'm having as long as he/she is healthy. I can't wait to have a picture to look at. Well I think that's all I have to say for now. Have wonderful day! Stay classy San Diego

K so I started school on Monday and I really should be more excited about it seeing as how I only have 4 months left of school, but I'm just not so far... it's actually been really boring. I'm sure it will get better after the first week though. We have a new teacher and she is just so damn boring!

Anyways, work is work. I get lonely working the night shift but sometimes it's nice to have the time to myself. Hah, I talk to myself a lot and I really really need to stop that.

Holli mentioned going bowling on Friday night and I think that would be a lot of fun... I really wanted to go last weekend but no one seemed too interested. I would just like to go out and do something. Hanging out is awesome... playing video games, watching movies, playing on laptops, and playing a game of horse in my garage are all really fucking fun things to do and I have a blast, but I'm just in the mood to go bowling and have a couple of beers or something. So that'd be sweet if we could all do that. I'm working Saturday at 8am but I don't care, I only work unti noon so I can just go home and take a nap after that. It's all good. That's how I roll.

Damn I know I had more to say but I can't think of anything... I'm almost done with work so it's hard to focus on anything right now other than getting out of here.

are we like those bored couples you you feel sorry for in restaurants? Are we the dining dead? I can't stand the idea of being the kind of couple people think that about.
