ridiculous day

I am gonna start with the nitty gritty here - today sucked - I mean really really sucked. It was just a rough day and I had to get the shit allll completely out of my room which I have been dragging ass on. Then, I had an appointment at noon to give up Tobi and Rudi...ummm that was simply horrendous and made me feel like the worst person on the planet and like I was giving up on my puppies and it didn't help that I had a rough morning anyway and that my pregnant emotions are effing haywire! So - I go to the appointment and was teary on my way there and some guy was petting the dogs and talking about how cute and great they were when the lady who worked there came out to ask if I was there for the 12:00 appt. The guy asks me "oh what is the appt. for?"....harmless question right? Well I attempted to blurt out "I have to give them up" and instead burst into tears and gushed out half of my life story and why I could no longer keep my lovely doggies. Poor guy didn't know what hit him - luckily for the two of us he was a nice guy and didn't say anything I could misconstrue as judgement. We parted our ways and I am sure he was wishing he hadn't asked what my appoitment was for. Ok - so I wiped my face and chilled out and went on with the one and a half hour appointment semi-tearless, answering questions, having the dogs show us "behaviors" and sharing ever minute detail of their lives and day to day routines and behaviors. Well, I gave them my donation and she explained that they would be there until adopted and would try to get them into the same home since they obviously were pretty inseparable. She told me they were about to take them to see the vet and perform the same "behaviors" with a stranger and the whole process that would happen before they were put into their room. She said that she was ready to take them and could keep their harnesses and collars since they didn't keep them on them so she took em off and I gave them hugs and pets and of course I lost it completely. I was a bawling mess and she was actually really nice and understanding. Well, she put the leads on them and attempted to take them out the door and told me to wait there so they wouldn't get upset when they watched me leave and then they freaked out - they refused to budge and would not walk out the room so after a little while she had me leave through another door and I then cried my eyes out complete with hysterical sobs back to my car and felt like the worst person ever. Chris of course assured me that this is better for them - I just don't have the time or money for them and surely not the house. But, it was soooooo hard to walk away from my little dogs. 
Ok, so anyway - ah - I chilled out and calmed down and had to go back to my house to get my stuff out of my room and whatnot and Meghan and Ryan were there to meet me to help out and I walk through my front door and see my entire room in trash bags right before my eyes in the living room! My assinine (I don't know how to spell it) ex-roommate took it upon himself to completely throw all of my belongings into trash bags - I was more than infuriated - this guy is just a douche bag - I mean who does that? no one has signed a lease yet or sent my mom any credit check information and he has taken it upon himself to move his cousin into my room! Ugh - cannot WAIT to be 100% done with that house! And then Ryan reminded me that for the first time since 1940 - no one in our family was living in the house and it made me a little sad and nostalgic :(. I do love that house - just not the headaches it has been causing me in recent months. Ah! 
Ok - so now to the part to make you all laugh - today I peed my pants! No joke - I sneezed and peed my pants. Now, I have never peed my pants - I mean ask my mom - I was an easy kid to potty train and never wet the bed - ever. Ok - before Chris says anything - because I know he will - there was one time I peed in his bed - but to my defense it freaked me out and wa apparently because I had a bad bladder infection - I know because I got so freaked out I called my doctor - but I digress - this thing today - sneezing and peeing my pants - it isn't the first time - this has been happening for a couple weeks now and I wanna shoot myself. Apparently along with turning into an emotional psycho, having boobs that hurt to put in a bra, and eating green olives, I also get to piss myself when I laugh, cough, and sneeze! Not cool.
Alright folks - dinner time!

Busy Busy

I hate moving! I seriously wanna shoot myself - I have to get all the crap out of my mom's house today and no one seems to want to help me! :( Chris has to do stuff with his uncle and Ryan has to go to school and do some homework! ughhh - I do NOT wanna do this today AT ALL and unly have a few hours because I am taking Nathan and Katie to Disney on Ice at 3:30....we are super excited and it will be a welcome distraction to the house....also tomorrow I say goodbye to Tobi and Rudi - I am already really upset about it but don't have a choice. They are going to a place where they will be adopted eventually and hopefully find a good home the two of them can go together. It will no doubt be an emotional day. Anyway - I am off to my old house to get the room cleared out!

Icee cups for sale!

Ok - so first things first....I just got back from the huge scary Ralph's down the street....I mean seriously it is HUGE and SCARY! Last time I was there I literally almost had a panic attack in the cracker joke. I mean - this place has a post office, dry cleaner, Wells Fargo, and Golden Spoon right there in the grocery store! Not to mention an entire section of the store that is bigger than most 7-elevens that is completely kosher - I mean seriously Rabbis work there and everything. Not that I would need a kosher section anyway - but this store has it all! So, you an see how I would get flustered and wish I was back in my teeny tiny fresh and easy! BUT and this is a big BUT -- I found something in the freezer section that I didn't know existed! Wild Cherry Icees in little cups! not kidding - this is for real - and they are like little icees! They aren't hard and popsicle-ish like I expected either they are all nice and smooth and frosty! So stoked! So I stocked up and I think Chris would have let me buy an extra freezer to hold more of them in if they would have had too many to fit our fridge's freezer! Pretty sure he is sick of me begging him for an icee - which currently requires him to drive a not so short distance! 
Alright anyway - so Cassie gave me Jenny McCarthy's "Belly Laughs" to read and if I had had more than 10 minutes to read today it definitely would have been finished - soooo funny! And makes me ot feel so crazy! Apparently I am not the only one who throws hysterical fits and forgets simple tasks and passwords to accounts I have had for years.... :). Also - my dreams lately have been insanely out of control - usually I dream in one of two ways - I either have a dream that is so real and believable that I wake up thinking- omigod did that happen for real or not?? Or - they are so ridiculous and unbelievable that I find myself saying - ok Chelle this is a dream wake up now!.....well - not so much anymore - last night my dream consisted of hovercrafts attacking me and running to work 20 miles so I wouldnt be late and having Nathan take me for a scenic tour in my car....and I woke up freaking out. I was freaking out in my dream and then woke up wondering if I was late for work and had to tell myself that Nathan can't drive! Very effing weird. Anyway - I am exhausted today so I am hitting the hay! praying for no weird dreams! night night!

So, I was reading my "now you are 14 weeks pregnant" email and found out that the baby is over three inches long! I don't know why ut for some reason it seemed huge! haha. Apparently it is the size of a lemon - and yes I will continue to refer to the baby as "it" until it has an identified gender - which I WILL be finding out thank you for asking. I am already itching to get in that damn baby room and paint away! Not to mention my mom has been calling me every other day to tell me to send her fabric that I like so she can make bedding and I have to remind her I NEEEEED to know boy or girl first! I still haven't decided if I would prefer to have one over the other which is a good thing I guess - I won't be disappointed either way! Currently the consensus is - Chris and Lish are definite it is a boy, Meghan desperately wants it to be a girl - purely for her selfish reasons of wanting to buy cute clothes! (which I couldn't agree with more) and Mindy thought girl last time I saw her so I think we are 50/50....oh wait - Carol absolutely is insistent it is a girl because of the heart rate (wive's tale - I googled it) and I think Ryan thinks boy - although he is thinking of names more than gender haha. He has come up with some crazy ones and then denounced my crazy ones and told me he would never call his niece/nephew by such names and would instead give it a new one - we shall see how that goes haha. 
As far as I go - I have been feeling GREAT - seriously more calm and stress-free than in a long time - however, I think I am getting forgetful! My mind seems to be a little tricky lately I can't remember passwords for things or random things I would normally never forget. Other than those gliches I feel pretty good. 
Ah - Chris is making me watch House with him - be back later!

So, having a little time this weekend to spend with Meghan and my long lost Cassie Kay was much needed. I had so much fun catching up and relaxing - not having to think about anything house related was very nice. Back home I have been lounging all afternoon even though I feel pretty good still. I think I am officially in the 2nd trimester - well I will be 14 weeks exactly on Tuesday but I feel great and have a ton more energy and have been more motivated to get stuff taken care of. I think Chris is stressing less lately too which is nice. I do still have a ton left to do at my old house but am not as stressed about it - on Friday I went over there and took a look at my insanely gross room and was like - I don't want any of this shit at all - so I am literally boxing it all up for a mega yard sale - which will be greatly appreciated with a little extra moolah! 
So, right now I am watching a show on TLC about the tallest family in the UK and have a hunch Chris and I are well on our way! I take after my 6'5" dad and come in at 5'9" - which isn't huge but definitely above average and combined with Chris' height of 6'6"ish - I am afraid this kid will come out 30 inches long! But, perhaps that will mean big birth weight (cross your fingers) and will let this baby get out a wee bit early! We need all the time we can get if we are going to make it to Amanda's wedding on August 6th! 
Anyway - no new cravings - I have actually been eating healthier lately and still weigh less than I did before I found out I was pregnant which I am not complaining about - I was big enough to begin with and the doc says it is just fine as long as I don't steadily lose - which I am not. I am secretly hoping I stay the same weight the entire pregnancy and the weight will just redistribute from my butt to my belly - wishful thinking! Well, I will try to be more regular on here! tata!

So, it's been awhile but we have been in crazy moving mode.....we are officially in the new apartment, but still have a ton to do at my house and have a lot to still buy furniture wise for the new place! Next weekend I am gonna drive up to Orange County to see Cassie and Meghan so I am stoked but that means that this is THE weekend to get everything (well most of everything) situated! And then on the 30th, I am taking Nay-Nay and Katie-Pie to Disney on Ice at the Sports Arena - so I am reallly hoping everything is done today and tomorrow! 
Well-pregnancy wise, the mood swings have chilled out and the nausea has definitely subsided as I am inching toward trimester 2! Which is a huuuuge relief! Unusually enough I think I feel more chilled out and stress-free than I have ever felt - which is certainly weird seeing as how I am usually a stress case over nothing and right now there is absolutely a TON to be stressed about! haha. Well - the other day I bought a jar of green olives with pimento which I haven't had since I was about 5 or so - so if the ultrasound wasn't a big enough indicator - my craving was! Be back later!
