I need to be a dentist

I just forked over $364 for four fillings. Said fillings took an hour or so to complete. And that was the copay, I'm not sure how much my insurance covered. Dear God! That must be nice. My dentist asks me, "Do you think I should start taking Fridays off?" Yes, yes you should. Because you were smart enough to study your butt off and land this cushy if sometimes nauseating job and you can afford to just take Fridays off if you want to. The only person who's had a nicer job that I've met was my orthodontist. He didn't even work on my mouth. He took a five minute look around, told someone else what to do and disappeared. Even his receptionist took a two hour lunch.

Don't get me wrong, both my dentist and my ortho were great. Really good at what they do. It just hurts to put that much down. But it was my fault. My kid is gonna have the cleanest mouth in the U.S. Brushing and flossing are so worth it. Do it now or pay for it later!

Thank God my dad felt very generous and ambushed us with a few hundred dollars. He can be a very sweet man.

That's all for this update.

Wannabe Work at Home Mom

I just went on maternity leave. It's early but my job requires a lot of lifting, bending, standing and it had just started taking a really uncomfortable toll on my body. My Doc agreed that it was about time for me to take leave, so here I am. At home. And to make an embarrassing confession; I can't drive. I am horrible at it. So I'm stuck in the area. But I will learn how to drive when the baby is born.

Anyway! I've got my heart set on finding a way to work from home. I can't stand the idea of leaving my baby with someone else. And it really doesn't make any sense for me to go to work when I'll only be making enough to pay for the daycare.

But it's hard to find legit work from home offers. At this point we're thinking a) home day care. I've taken care of multiple kids regularly before so I think it would be doable. But with my very first child in infancy I find it a daunting aspect, quite possibly too much to handle. B) Data entry. Hubby says his sister is doing it scam free so we have to talk to her about the company she works with.

This is definitely the coolest and most amazing thing that has ever happened to me and I wouldn't give it up for every one of your anonymous lives ;) But it can be overwhelming. I mean, I'm standing here at the foot of Mt. Everest clad in California Casual sans climbing gear, and hey! Where the hell is my Sherpa?

As the Belly Grows/Wolverine

My child has been super active the past few days. Which I like because it's fun and I know he's ok :p It makes up for how torturous it's been trying to find a name! Aidan is out. Kaleb is out.

Quinn is a possibility, but I don't think it's right. Oh well, the search continues. At least we have a few months until the day. I keep telling the hubby we should just name him Kid since that's how I refer to him now. It's a joke but watching him get all uppity is funny.

We saw X-men Origins: Wolverine the other day. It was fantastic (for the most part) and I hope they make a mini series thing out of it. It was very well done and I give it two thumbs up. You all should go see it.

I'm super psyched to see the new Terminator movie. It just looks like it's going to be superb.

Oh and if you will, wish us luck because we're going to be looking for a bigger place here in the next few days. One bedroom and 700 sq ft is filling up fast and we don't even have any baby stuff yet!

What's in a name?

So like I said, we're having a boy. But I have no idea what I want to name him. My fiancee likes Aiden, which is a good name, but it's also really popular right now and I'm not in love with it. And I want to be. I want to love the name we're going to bestow upon the first of our offspring for the rest of his life. So the search continues! Any ideas?

Milk & Sex

Lactose reduced milk didn't help. I still threw up. So any hope I offered on that front I take back. Sorry ladies.

But I found out the babies sex! It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You couldn't understand unless you knew us but my fiancee is literally the perfect man. God blessed me with the family I always wanted to start and I'm so thankful. Seeing Mike's reaction when we found out we were having a boy was perfect, especially since he'd really been hoping for a girl. Not even a moment's hesitation to suggest anything was missing from his joy.

And you should see the juevos on our baby. He's a little stud :p

Quick Note

Given Up by LP sucks and makes me hate them a little. How melodramatic and cliche can they get? (Should they see this, I would like to clarify that my previous statement is not a challenge!)

Lovely Nirvana/ The Dawn of the Pregnancy Cold.

The plaintive strains of Lithium accompany my physical discomfort perfectly. I've got to say I'm amused by my ability to indulge myself so greatly. I have a slight fever and I feel a little dizzy. My throat is scratchy and my nose is alternately stuffed and flowing. And I'm being pampered and made fun of in just the right harmony. I love my mom. She makes me chicken noodle soup and then teases me for eating too much chocolate. Well what I'm trying to say, I guess, is that despite being honestly sick, today has been fairly pleasant. I hope I can make it to work tomorrow. I don't want to miss two days.

Some funny jokes.

What do you call a bunch of white guys sitting on a bench?

The NBA.

Drunken Irish

An Irishman called Paddy was drinking at the pub all night.
It was pretty late and the bartender came up to him to tell him that the bar was closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried to stand up one more time with the same result. So he figured he'd just crawl outside, hang out for a while, get some fresh air and hopefully that would sober him up.
Once outside he stood up and fell again right on his face.
So he decided to crawl the 4 blocks to his home and when he arrived at the door he tried one more time with the same results.
Exhausted, he then gave up and started crawling to the bedroom.
When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up.
This time he managed to pull himself upright but he quickly fell right into the bed and fell sound asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. The next morning, he woke up with his wife standing over him shouting at him.

"So, you've been out drinking again!!"

"What makes you say that?" He asked as he put on an innocent look.

"They called, you left your wheelchair at the pub again."

You have one wish

A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a Genies lamp. She picked it up and rubbed it, lo-and-behold a Genie appeared. The amazed woman asked if she was going to receive the usual three wishes.

The Genie said, "Nope ... due to economic inflation, constant downsizing, low wages in third-world countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant you one wish. So ... what'll it be?"

The woman didn't hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other."

The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Wow, lady! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I'm good, but im not THAT good! I don't think it can be done. Make another wish."

The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I've never been able to find the right man. You know, one that's considerate and fun, likes to cook and helps with the housecleaning, is good in bed and gets along with my family, doesn't watch sports all the time, and is faithful. That's what I wish for, a good mate."

The Genie let out a long hard sigh and said, "Let me see that fucking map!"

Pregnancy induced lactose intolerance!

Hey everyone. This is my first blog post on bloggerdotcom. I'm 22, engaged and pregnant. Yeah we mixed it up a little bit :p This blog is for those pregger vixens out there who suddenly find that they can not drink milk while they are pregnant without throwing up.

You aren't weird. It was hard for me to find written confirmation of this, but it seems to be that because our digestive systems have slowed with pregnancy we can no longer tolerate lactose, the main sugar in cow milk, which is already difficult to digest. Best tip I've heard is to try lactose reduced milk. I'm too biased to try soy or rice milk. I'm gonna try the lactose reduced milk and post a review.

And remember, always ask your doc before you try something new out :)
