Yippie for Me!

I finally and I mean FINALLY broke down and got myself a new camera. I have been wanting an SLR for a while now, but for some reason or another never got around to getting one. My G5 is getting slow and taking pictures of the kids with that camera has been hard - by the time the camera focuses the kids are a mile down the road! Do not get me wrong the G5 has been amazing, but it was time for a change. Anyway, Ritz was running a special - No tax, No shipping, and a $50 GC! Wow, I could not resist!!

I put the $50 GC to good use. I got me another lens and a memory card.

Since we will be going on vacation for Spring Break I can not wait to use it. The camera is super fast and I have actually seen open eyes!! None of those weird expressions - eyes and mouth half open looks, man this is going to be fun.

Grammy Awards

The only things notable about the ceremony were the horrendous sound system and the announcement that Scarlett Johansson has decided to become a singer. I really think that the Grammy Awards is not the place to make such announcements especially in front of actual singers that have worked very hard to get where they are.

I have never really liked Scarlett as a matter of fact I consider her an overrated actress, she always has the same lost look on her face. I don’t know what people rave about.

Anyway, about her singing career, I don’t know what kind of music she will sing or if she is with a band or single, all I know is that is a bad idea. Just because she woke up one day completely bored and decided to give music a try does not make her a singer. I don’t know, I guess she always has her acting career to fall back on.

Mother Nature You Are Going Down

I am kicking Mother Nature’s ass as soon as I get a hold of her. How dare you Mother Nature?!! How dare you give me hopes that it will be nice and warm and take that away from me overnight? I slept last night in shorts and a t-shirt, no socks, no flannel two-piece pajamas that keep getting bunched up on my upper arm or leg. This morning I woke up searching for socks, you suck!

My brown skin is starting to loose its natural healthy glow, I am looking pasty and chalky. I am starting to get whiter than the checkout line at Ann Taylor. That just ain't right. Mother Nature you are going down!

Baby News

I went to the Dr’s yesterday. It was my first baby appointment and for some reason I made it at 9AM in the morning, which would have been fine for a regular appointment, but not for one when you are going to meet a doctor for the first time, specially since we were are going to get intimate kinda fast. I was worried especially at 8am when I saw myself in the mirror and noticed that I had not groomed myself in a long, long time, I mean there is really has been no reason to, I mean JR and I have been married for so long that he no longer cares how it looks down there. He is happy just being near it.

Anyway, I did not want to do anything drastic, but for some forsaken reason I could not find the grooming scissors (my house has been at such a disarray that I am lucky to find anything) and I refuse to do anything with the razor, I just did not want that fresh cut look, I wanted the doctor to think that I maintain myself. I finally found the scissors and went to work taking just a little off the top and sides, like I said nothing too drastic just a “cared for look”.

Forty-five minutes later we were on our way to the Docs. After they get all the pertinent information they tell me to take my pants and underwear off, see, we get close kinda fast (I was just glad that I had laid out a nice pair of underwear and socks the night before). When JR saw me he definitely noticed the difference a little trim makes. The Doc says that I am due around September 18 and gave us this first picture of our unborn child, I present to you “The Last Episode”.

Did it Stop Raining?

Last week I went to lunch with Elaine. It was kinda funny that I have putting off having lunch with her until it stopped raining; I really hate cold weather and really detest cold weather and rain. Anyway, after planning we decided to meet on Wednesday, a whole 36 hours after it stopped raining, I just thought that it would be nice and dry by then, but that was not the case. When I woke up it was dark and dreary outside, yuck. We were destined to meet in the rain.

We had a really nice lunch, her treat!! Thanks Elaine. On the way out she said that I looked like it was 30 degrees outside. I don’t know what the deal is with me, but I have been freezing to death. Yes, I know it is only 40 or 50 outside, but I am really, really cold. I don’t know if it is because I am pregnant (The Last Episode on the way, but that is another post all together) or maybe there is something really wrong with me. I keep telling JR that we need to move to a warmer climate. I can just imagine me telling people that the reason I now live in the Florida Keys is because it is just too cold in Houston.

How are things with you guys anyway? Yes, I keep telling myself that I need to blog more and I do think of interesting stuff to think about, but never really get around to doing it. I thought of writing a synopsis of my daily going-ons, but thought that to be too boring. Or maybe some of you might find it interesting that I actually started cleaning the upstairs, used to be exercise room, now business control center. The room was to the point that I could not walk in there. I was really bugging me and I decided to do something about it.

Tomorrow you ask – I might enlighten you all with some laundry, I am using the new Gain Joyful Expressions detergent. Sometimes, you just need a little change.
