For the last two days I have just been crying, crying and more crying. It's ridiculous. For good reasons, silly reasons, dumb reasons or no reason at all which is the most fun. I'm a pretty emotional person anyway, but honestly being pregnant makes me just an embarassing basket of crazy emotions. I'm at 30 1/2 weeks, and although I have had odd crying incidences on and off the entire time the last two days have been to the extreme. It's a triple shot of hormones. I am just hoping it calms down before I have to go back to work tomorrow b/c I don't want to have to explain that I am not crying for any reason while at my computer! Well on that note I am off to eat, b/c if I'm not crying I am usually eating or sleeping hahaha!

Ok, the double duty is too much. I am not updating this blog much less, both of my blogs, so with that sad news I am going to have to end this one. I will be focusing on keeping only the family blog updated from now. Thanks for reading.

Merry Christmas to all this holiday season and the best wishes this coming new year! Sorry for my lapse in blogging but there is much to tell and I will post it soon. Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful holiday with those you love.
"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."

This past week has been crazy. There has been more going on then I can even explain but to give you just a slight idea of how my week has been progressing my camera, cell phone and fridge all died within 4 days of each other. My food is still in coolers in the garage! Things keep getting added to my "To-do" list faster than I can scratch them off. There have been many times where I just wanted to crawl in bed and hide, and even more when I was questioning why me. But then something happened: a dear friend suffered a terrible loss and suddenly all my "trauma" from the last few days was put into perspective. My trials were minial to the tradegy she and her family were now enduring. It caused me to stop, take a moment and be thankful for all the blessings in my life. To enjoy snuggling with my son and kissing my husband and really focus on all the good in my life and savor it. I encourage everyone to take a moment today to look around and take in all they have to be thankful for, we are all blessed.

This Sunday I am teaching a lesson to all the young women about marriage standards, and setting your standards while still dating etc. So all you fabulously smug married women, whether you still are a newlywed or have past your silver anniversary, I need you to think back to your singleton days; what advice would you give other young women regarding dating/courtship on the road to finding your spouse? The advice can be serious, spiritual and even funny as long as it's true. Accompany stories, particularly the humorous kind as I don't want to be a boring teacher, are welcome as well. As always thanks for your help.

(So as not to be prejudice, if your husbands wish to offer some insights as well by all means their advice is welcome too)

In response to a comment I recieved regarding the title of this post, it is from a movie, a very funny movie at that and one of my favorites. I am not sure I want to be friends with people that don't have a sense of humor, but since they didn't leave their name all I can say is maybe YOU(whoever you are) should brush up on your movie quotes and get a sense of humor before you tell people to use a dictionary!

That's right I said time. I am not wondering how you clean b/c I know we all do. What I wonder is when, especially those with little and not so little ones to clean up after. At toddler gym the other day some of the moms were discussing the woes of feeling like they were constantly picking up after their kids. I can't do that, if I pick up after every mess he makes, I will be doing nothing but cleaning all day. I am a company/bedtime cleaner. While the big guy is giving the little guy a tubbie, I am running around the house picking up all the toys, laundry, books etc. So by the time he is out and ready for bedtime my house is all straightened as well. That's not to say I don't tidy a bit during the day, I do. I like to clean the dinner mess as quickly as possible and if there is someone coming over I do a quick tidy as well. But otherwise, the mess pretty much builds all day until the bathtime cleanup. There are a few reasons why this works me: one, b/c once the babe is asleep I want to relax but I can't if my house is dirty, I can't sleep either so this behooves me getting some rest which is always a good thing; two, if all is tidy at night that means all is tidy in the morning and each day starts fresh also very condusive to my sanity. So I was just wondering what TIME of cleaning works best for you and why?

Ok, I just have to ask; What the crap is up with bosses/managers not wanting us lowly co-workers to be friends? Honestly, what do they expect us to do? How are we suppossed to survive coming to the office everyday if we aren't allowed to joke, vent, laugh and lament about the goings on and politics of the office? It's okay, we aren't planning a coup. We also talk about our spouses, partners, kids, what we did over the weekend and even what we had for dinner last night. Can't they remember when they were one of us and used to interact and build relationships with co-workers to make the hours go by faster? Honestly does anyone have a valid and legitimate reason for this? And don't give me it's bad for productivity that is a load of crap and you know it. All right I am all ears.
