Woah, it appears WordPress has changed their log in screen, because for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to make a new post.  But, after much fumbling, ah – ha! I figured it out.

This weekend was full of much productivity.  First, I got this:

So, this weekend Mr. Trashy and I decide we are going to upgrade my cell phone, give him my Blackberry and put us both on a joint family plan with our cellphones.    We were waiting in line to talk to the sales reps.  They had a sign on the door saying they had no iPhones, but,  I wasn’t  too concerned, as I needed a phone today, and it just made my decision easier. If I can’t get it, then I’ll just settle for something else.  The iPhone is next to impossible to get right now in this city.

So, while I am waiting in line, this girl basically pushes her way in front of me and cuts in front of me in line.  The sales people noticed.  She interrupts the sales clerk helping a lady at the counter getting her account set up and asks about the iPhone.  He lets her look at abox then takes it away and tells her that me and Mr. Trashy are next, and he will be with her after he helps us.

So, we get to the counter, turns out I am not eligible to upgrade to the android phone I originally wanted, but they have a special promo to upgrade to the iPhone 4.  He tells me they have one iPhone they can give to me, but not til 6pm as it is on hold for someone until then, however, they don’t think he is going to make it as it’s 4:30 now.  It’s basically the last iPhone left for sale in the city.  So, since the pushy bitch behind me essentially pushed me out of the way to get to the counter and cut me off in line, I said , “Sure, I’ll take it.”   MUAHAHAH.  Next time, don’t push a pregnant lady bitch, I wasn’t even gonna GET the iPhone, but because you were rude to me, and wanted it, I TOOK IT FROM YOU.  HAHAHAHA.

And I am glad I did. Because this is one kick ass phone.   I have had a couple dropped calls with the antenna issue, however, Apple is sending me a free case which should remedy this problem.  I love this phone.

But, this weekend is more than just iPhones…..the construction of the baby nursery is pretty much finished!  All we have left to do is trim up around the window, and install a new bedroom door, and it’s done.

Here is a before:

Here is the after:

Ahhh. Much better.

Here is one more with the crib and dresser set we purchased:

Much, much happier.

I am so proud of Mr. Trashy, he did the whole room pretty much by himself.  Drywall, painting, new window, new light fixture. He had some help from his Dad with the window and light, but the rest is pretty much all him.  I am so happy with it.  Now, to trim the window and get a new door, and then rest is all the fun decorating stuff.  I’ve found some great stuff on Etsy I can’t wait to order.

2010 is turning out to be a pretty awesome year for me.  Now only if this damn belly would stop itching.

On the weekend, I went for a 3D Ultrasound to see Trashy Jr.  Here is what we got to see.  He is about 29 weeks at the time:

His hand is holding onto the umbillical cord.  And no, his hand is not chopped like “Thing” a la Addams Family.  It’s the angle of the ultrasound wand.  I am having a hard time grasping there is a little human living inside of me.  WEIRD.

After years of not doing anything with my polymer clay, I thought I’d finally give making food miniatures a whirl.  Here is my first attempt.

Pretty awesome nonetheless.

Dear Friends,

With our current economy, Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes. You’ll most likely agree that it’s a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I’ve included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most
Aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I’ve attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the
Nifty slippers for yourself….

Awaiting your response. It’s crucial that I get the right size for each
One of you.

Crazy busy with work. Been sick.

I shall leave you with the the best shirt ever.


The kitties will play.

When the internet goes down at work, I don’t actually find something productive to do. Instead, I do this:

I like drawing litte outfits on pictures of kitty cats.

Ah, the flickr game, which I lovingly ganked from Floofle.

Yes, I realize some of my answers are a bit on the morbid side right now, but frankly, unless you care to have me cross over into the territory of TMI, don’t ask questions you don’t want the answers too.

In other news, I’m eating my version of breakfast – sipping on a cold coffee and munching away on Miss Vickie’s Jalapeno potato chips.  Not exactly nutritious, I know.

I’ve recently discovered Google Reader, and I must say I LOVE having all my blog feeds on one page, so I can read my favourite blog updates RIGHT AWAY. Because I am obsessive about it though.

I got a ton of organizing done at my place this weekend. Now just to deal with that nightmare that is commonly known at the four laundry baskets of clothing taking over the a laundry room. Argh.

Things are finally appearing to be looking up, I can’t believe it. I started my new job this week, I love it. I started my personal training sessions at the gym, and I am DETERMINED to follow through. I should be able to reach my fitness goals in six weeks, so, it’s pretty realistic, and there is no reason why I should not be able to follow through.

Also, in an effort to organize my life, I have started a personal success program, the Change Your Life Challenge : A 70 Day Makeover Program for Women. Now, normally I am skeptical of such self-help programs, I find many of them suffering from Stuart Smalleyitis. I do not believe that looking in the mirror each day and telling myself I am beautiful, smart, etc, to be effective. It may work for some people, and if it does, great for you, but personally, I find it a bit too lacking in substance for me.

Also, I’ve been trying to eat healthier, and track my eating to gear up for my 1500 calorie per day diet the personal trainer is going to put me on. I’ve been managing all that over at SparkPeople, it’s got a fantastic online nutrition tracker, as well as many support groups and forums dealing with various topics to do with overall human wellness – nutrition, fitness, depression, anxiety, etc. There are tons of articles to read as well. Seems like a fantastic and FREE little resource if you ask me.

Anyway, I plan to track my progress with the Change Your Life Challenge (CYLC) with updates to this blog, so hopefully I don’t bore y’all to death. Speaking of which, I have day three exercises do to, so I shall run.
