pregnancy

So, I have so much to do and should be doing right now here at work. But I don't want to so I figure I will post for those of you who do read this.
So I am officially 28 weeks, feeling huge and very ready for this baby to be here. At this point I have two callings in church, nursery leader and I am on the relief society enrichment committee. On top of this I am working full time, taking care of the girls, and going crazy. There is not enough time in the day. I am tired by 2 in the afternoon and never willing to wake up in the morning.
We finally were able to take this past weekend and drive to Oklahoma to visit my family. I was very grateful to Wayne he drove the entire time. I would have fallen asleep at the wheel probably. Anywhoo, I had lots of fun visiting with my Aunt and just getting to be around her. She is like my mommy so I have to get my fix every once in awhile. We also took the girls to see my ex's mom and dad. They got to get their Christmas presents finally and they played around with the Papa. I am so very glad that I can have an awesome relationship with them even after everything with their son.
We also visited my friend April and I was able to take her some baby girl clothes I had been hanging onto for her. We dressed Alexis up in the green lacy dress I had found and she was so stinking adorable. We had a little photo shoot since Aprils camera was stolen. But the biggest thing was watching Wayne interact with the baby. Alexis is a little over a month old now and still tiny and he held her while she was sleeping (Uber cute!)and then he fed her! I almost cried watching them together. Just a little glimpse into what our lives will be like in 10 weeks. It's so amazing to think about.
KayLynn and Karyn are doing great. They are honery as ever and think they are grown ups.I pulled out some workbooks from Sing, Read and Write system that mom and dad got for the girls and I was helping KayLynn and asked her to tell me what certain letters were and all of a sudden I realized....SHE IS READING HER LETTERS! They weren't in alphabetical order, we were in the AEIOU part of the book and I was just amazed at how smart my little girl was. Of course I then tried to work with Karyn and she was more interested in scribbling and laughing at me trying to help her. So I figure she knows, she just doesn't care to brag about it which is just fine with me.
So thats about it for now. I better get to work. I have wasted enough time for now.

idiot driver

Ugh!
Today I had the most amazingly awful morning! first of all this child I am carrying thinks it's ok to wake mom up at 2:30 in the morning and play and not let me go back to sleep. I was up until 4 and when the alarm went off at 6:30 this morning I was so not ready to get up. Then I am off and go to walmart to pick up a gift card for one of our scholarship recipients. It takes them 15 minutes to verify whether I am able to authorize the use of the check. I told them it wasn't the first time and it wouldn't be the last. I am spending money in their store you would think they would just take it.
After leaving walmart I realized I had left my phone at home. So I go home and get it, only to find that KayLynn dropped her baggie with her valentines cards in them. I knew she would be upset so I drove to her school to give them to her. That indeed was a proud mommy moment. She was so happy to see that I had found her cards. She had worked so hard on them yesterday.
So, then traffic is great I am heading up the hill to work and an idiot driver swerves into my lane! No signal no nothing! in order not to hit her I brake a little swerve and honk and I end up getting smacked by a branch. Which by the way scared the pee out of me. So this dumb driver continues to stay in front of me acting like nothing happened. So while I am burning holes into the back of her head I realise that my mirror is gone! Holy cow! are you kidding me! and there is nothing I can do about it! by this time I am seething mad that this woman is still in front of me and has the audacity to look in her mirror straight at me and smile like nothing is wrong.
If I wasn't pregnant I would have let her hit me! I would have kept on the gas and made sure she got me a new car. I need a new one anyways. But I am carrying my little geek and I want nothing to happen. So, I end up with a passenger side casing with no mirror and a license plate number make and model of a car and a sweet little smile to make my day..... :|
