I have not had time, but that certainly is not the case, it is more
that I do not do anything at all... It is rare I leave the house, and
when I do it is not anything too exciting..
I have been put off work since the end of Novenber and unless
I start feeling better it will be until the end of my pregnancy.
Thankfully I have a great sick program at work for short term
sick leave, so I am not left high and dry and am still bringing
It has not been easy being home every day doing nothing.
I sit and watch TV, watch movies, read, knit.. The less I move
the better I feel, which is hard. I feel like my muscles are
going into atrophy, just going up the stairs makes me winded..
Not a lot of fun.
I should not be complaining all the time, and I wish I could
say I am one of those women who LOVE being pregnant but
that is not the case. I have another appointment on the 19th
and we shall see just how much more weight I have lost,
hopefully I will have stopped going down too much more,
though from how I look and feel I can say I have lost more
weight, which sucks.. I am keeping "some" food down, but
not a lot of variety.
My 31st Birthday came and went without a lot of fan fare..
We did manage to get out on the night before. I had purchased
tickets for James Blunt months ago before I ever started getting
sick and was determined to go to the concert. My body was
kind to me and I made it through the concert and did not throw
up until I got out into the parking lot. The concert was so
Entertaining.. He sings with so much honest passion and I
My husband has been wonderful and takes amazing care of me.
He does EVERYTHING around the house, including the grocery
shopping, dishes, laudry.. cleaning.. He does it all.. It is wonderful.
So nothing all too exciting to report..
I am home all day long...
Looking forward to enjoying the Holidays the best I can.

down in Utah visiting my family. It has been an
interesting trip thus far seeing how I've been very
sick with this pregnancy. However, the pills are helping
quite a lot and as long as I get enough sleep (and by
enough sleep I mean like 12 hours a day) then I can
I'm down in Springville now, so if anyone is around
drop me an email.. I no longer have my US cell phone
so just send me your number or email and we will
be in touch...

London Times Obituary
An Obituary printed in the London Times........
'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth
records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable
lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why
the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair;
and maybe it was my fault
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies
(don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies
(adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned
but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a
6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a
classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash
after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly
student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for
doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in
disciplining their unruly children.
It declined even further when schools were required to get
parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a
student; but could not inform parents when a student became
pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became
businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their
victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend
yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar
could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman
failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled
a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and
Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; his son,
He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
I Know My Rights
I Want It Now
Someone Else Is To Blame
I'm A Victim
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized
he was gone. If you still remember him, may want to pass this on.
If not, join the majority and do nothing.

a week and a half, but I had to say how enjoyable my
visit was... I got to finally see my new sweet little niece
Hazel... She loved me :) It had been over a year since I had
Saturday, May 24, 2008
I have been working what I thought would be a great way to
have more time with my fiance and friends, turned out to
just be a disaster for myself and my mind and body and sleep.
I am not referring to some recent addiction to drugs.. Even
WORSE.. I have been on 6 months of over night shifts.
Going to work at 930 pm and getting off at 6am has not been
my best friend. I sleep - but never all that great and the
weekends when I am off I drag my feet the whole time trying
to adjust my body enough to peel myself out of my most
comfortable bed for church when my body knows full well I
should be sleeping soundly. I'm not sure if I have learned
anything new in Sunday School the past while and I think the
children in Primary wondered why I was not my overly
happy self to be with them teaching Sharing Time... (No
worries I was still very much perky and happy to spend my
time with them).
All this to say that tonight (and I suppose there are benefits
like times when it is not busy and I can add a blog entry)
Is my last over night. I was extremely excited I had to share
my excitement... SO, seeing how I love Ice-cream. I decided
what better way to celebrate than picking up a Dairy Queen
Ice cream cake?
I will sadly admit mine did not have a TNMT on it..
Instead it was full of pretty lavender flowers.
My co-workers were more than happy to share in my cake
and my enthusiasum for my finaly night.
I have had fun working with the over night crews who for
the most part pick this schedule because it works for them.
I however, miss my day friends.
So next week I am off to Utah for a quick visit to my
family and to be a part of my dear friend Paul's wedding
to his beautiful bride to be Lindsey... then back to work
during the day time hours..
So not only will I be super happy to be on a normal
schedule.. I think my fiance (I KNOW) he will be more
than happy... My Cat - though he sleeps all the time anyway.
My running partner and Matron of Honour Stephanie -
I've been good the past while going at 6am for a runs at
the nature park, but it will be so much nicer to do so when
I'm rested and not dreaming of sleep...
My Sunday school teacher so I might be more attentive..
God, because lets face it my prayers after my over night
shifts ended many times with me waking up with a kink in
my neck asleep...
My neighbours, because I might be motivated more to
dig the weeds out of my flowers and finally getting around to
painting my front door..
Last but not least, my stomach.. Its been confused for 6
months now when it is suppose to be hungry and when it is
To all of you who work the "graveyard" shift and do not wish
to.. My deepest Sympathy
To all of you who enjoy working the shift - You are nuts..
