Cry Baby

This is my new name for myself. It's amazing what a good cry will do for you. I just went into the bathroom at work and sat in the floor and just cried. If you know me then you know I went through pregnancy hell during my last time. I thought for sure this child would have mercy on me. I was wrong. My poor husband tries to understand but can't. I tell him I feel bad. He wants to know what hurts. Everything does! My hormones are going crazy. I'm exhausted from not resting like I should. I'm nauseated all the time throwing up 1-2 a day. The depression is starting in. I can feel it rearing it's ugly head. I.Won't.Let.It.

To top it off: Today's my birthday. Do I care? No.

I love my meaw

Meaw is the husband's grandmother. I was never close to my grandparents growing up and now they are all deceased. I have adopted meaw as my own now. She is one of a kind that's for sure. She's 80 and still gets around great. She does have her "Meawisims" that tend to crack us up. Sometimes you can talk to her and she doesn't even know it. She is a great cook BUT she has come up with some disasters before. For example, my SIL wanted a Japanese salad that called for sunflower seeds. Well she just threw in the whole seed including shell. It was a *crunchy* salad. She made an eclair cake and decided that cinnamon graham crackers would taste better then the normal graham crackers. It turned out to be just nasty. The husband tells me of a time when she made *Ham Surprise*. I won't even describe what was in this. Let's just say he and his siblings have been scarred for life.

She's so funny though that you just love her to death. I guess since i didn't have a relationship with my grandparents it has really made me want our kids to have a close relationship with our parents.

Child's play

I'm sure you've seen the foam letters that you put on your shower walls? They look like this:

Well, my husband and I have started a little game where we leave notes to each other on the wall. He showers first in the morning and then it's my turn. We started out with naughty notes and then it moved onto movie quotes like:
Brooks was here, so was Red
But we don't have all the letters so it reads more like:
Broks wuz her8, s0 wVs Fed

Sometimes it takes me a second to figure it out but that's half the fun. I've noticed my normal 20 minute shower has sometimes lasted 30 minutes because it's so freaking hard to come up with something. We've moved onto political phrases now.
This morning he left me:
Wead my lips no m8w taxs
I responded with:
Bil wuvs monca lewsky

Who knew MB's foam letters could be so much fun!?

The word is out

So we told the inlaws last night. My SIL sounded like a screech owl once she read the shirt. MIL wanted to know what all the commotion was about. GrandmotherIL kept going "What?" "Are you?"
It was quite humorous.

So my favorite new show "Lost" comes on tonight. It is thee best show of the season.
Everyone must watch.

What is wrong with this world?

Nigerian court condemns women to death by stoning
Tuesday, October 12, 2004 Posted: 1:29 PM EDT (1729 GMT)

BAUCHI, Nigeria (Reuters) -- Islamic courts in Nigeria sentenced two women to death by stoning for having sex out of wedlock, but two men whom they said they slept with were acquitted for lack of evidence, authorities said Tuesday.

Both sentences, which were passed within the last month in the northern state of Bauchi, have to be confirmed by the state governor before being carried out, and they are open to appeal.

Nobody has been lawfully stoned to death in Nigeria since 12 northern states introduced Islamic Sharia law in 2000, because all such sentences have been overturned on appeal.

Hajara Ibrahim, a 29-year-old woman, was sentenced on October 5 by an Islamic Sharia court in the Tafawa Balewa area of the state, having confessed to having sex with 35-year-old Dauda Sani and becoming pregnant, the court said in a statement.

"The court has however handed the woman convict to her guardian to take care of her until she delivers the baby before the sentence will be executed by stoning her to death according to the provisions of the Sharia penal code," the court said.

"There is no evidence to link him with the allegation and consequently the court acquitted him for lack of evidence."

The second woman, 26-year-old Daso Adamu, was handed the same sentence on September 15 by a Sharia court in Ningi area of Bauchi state, said judge Ahmed Musa Wurojamel.

Adamu admitted to having sex with a 35-year-old man 12 times, and is now in custody in Ningi prison, the judge added.

Sharia judgments often go unreported in Nigeria because they are handed down in small, remote court houses and local media interest is limited.

Previous sentences of death by stoning for adultery in 2002 and 2003 were overturned by higher Sharia courts after international appeals for clemency.

The adoption of Sharia law in northern Nigeria has polarized Africa's most populous nation, whose 130 million population is split roughly evenly between Muslims and Christians


What year is it? Why are women still being stoned in the year 2004? Why are only the women being charged? Personally i think the men in this case should have their winkeys chopped off for not standing up to what they did. It takes two to tango, people.

Hormones...

The hormones have set in. Driving into work this morning i was looking down trying to find a phone number when the truck in front of me threw a huge rock at my windshield. Scared the crap out of me. Enough to make me start crying. Ugh.

Anywho, one family down and one more to go on telling the good news. We told mine yesterday at lunch. MB had a shirt on and i said "Let's take this off so you don't get anything on it" and when i lifted it off he had his little t-shirt on underneath that read "I'm the Big Brother!". My mom was the first to get it. It was fun. We'll do the same with Scott's family tomorrow night.

This pregnancy is already different then the first. Let's just say i'm already doing the rubberband trick and well it's not going to work much longer.

What pisses me off...

People really know how to push my buttons.

I hate it when:

I hold the door open for someone and they don't say "Thank you". I feel like slamming it in their face.

I let someone walk in front of my vehicle and they don't even acknowledge that I stopped for them. I feel like bull dozing them over with my SUV and never even looking back.

When I have 1 item in the check out line and the person in front of my had a full cart and they clearly acknowledge me and don't let me in front of them.

When people will block a lane of traffic to wait for the parking space up front. Walk people! You could use the exercise!

When you walk into a business and the person *helping* you acts like it's killing them to do their job.

Yes, the pregnancy hormones have kicked in.

I am stepping off of my soap box now and going back to work.
