You put the lime in the cocunut...

So Friday Ry and I drove the 3.5 hours to the Indianapolis airport for our 1:55pm flight to LaGuardia. Picture this. Me with Ry in his Snuggie on my front, carrying my purse, the diaper bag, another small bag, the big rolling suitcase, and his myself...can we say OMGWTF?!?!!! So...with all this stuff I get up to the check in counter and find out that the flight has been delayed an hour and a half which is going to make me miss my connecting flight in LaGuardia to Syracuse. Great. So they rebook me for a 4:45 flight...which gets delayed to 5:30! lol, so I make the most of it!

I got my first pedicure ever and Ry was the most amazingly well behaved child (as usual). I picked up a book at the bookstore that I think everyone should read. It's called "Are you there Vodka? It's me, Chelsea." It's by comedienne Chelsea Handler and OMG talk about a LOL kind of book! I was snort-laughing my way through the entire book! The fact that she refers to her father as "bitch tits" just killed me! Then the part about her red-headed boyfriend's "pitcher's mound" downstairs...HI-larious!! Found out from my pedicurist that she also has a book where she documents her one-night stands. Each chapter is a new man! Can't wait to read it!

Above is a pic of Ry and me at the salon getting my pedi! And below is him sitting in a chair at the salon playing like the little angel he is!
So anyway, we get on our little puddle jumper to DC and Ry sleeps the way there and is just perfect. We get to DC and let me just say that I really hate that airport. I just do. It's crowded and full of yuppies ignoring their children because they're too busy talking about stocks, politics, and paint colors. Shockingly this flight boarded ON TIME! Just a gate change this time! Regardless, the flight was good, and Ry slept again!
So, we finally land, and I drag my exhausted ass off the plane and there's Daniel. At this point, I'm so tired I could have cared less if the a horny leprechaun had met me, I just wanted out of airports period. So, being Syracuse, NY it was snowing (shocking, I know) and it took something like 2 hours to get to Ft. Drum. I slept the entire way. When we got to the apartment everything was in the living room and all the bedroom doors were closed. Odd, but ok. He had purchased a baby swing for Ry and already had the pack n play set up for him. So Ry and I laid down on the bed to sleep while he put the swing together. Swing got put together and all I wanted to do was sleep. Think that happened? If you said no you guessed right! Hell, it had been awhile, so I went for it, and lemme tell ya, I'm gonna have to talk to my doctor because I feel like I'm 10 years old again. Even tampons hurt. Something's not quite right. So I finally got to fall asleep at like 3:30/4am. Ry was up at 7. Daniel slept til like 9 and then got up and got donuts from the store because he had like NO food. He had some rice krispies and some Vitamin D milk. I DON'T do Vitamin D milk. Can't do it. Just can't. forward to Ry's first nap and I want to, 3, I want to take a NAP!! Well...let's just say I had to force him off me so that I could sleep. He slightly redeemed himself by taking care of Ry for an hour while I slept. After I woke up I decided to take a shower and get ready for dinner. I got all cuted up and told him to get in the shower and get ready. He did. And his idea of ready was a wrinkly t-shirt and some jeans. No. Just no. Turns out that he has 5 shirts. 2 of which should NEVER be worn in public and should be burned quite frankly. So finally I got him in a dress shirt and we left. We went to Applebee's for dinner and I ordered a steak. Unfortunately when I got the steak, it had a big tendon running through the middle that made me throw up in my mouth a little so they made me a new one, which came out not done well enough so they took it back and cooked it longer. Through all of this the waiter was nothing but polite, got us our drinks promptly, took our order prompty, wasn't overbearing in any way, did everything right. So during dinner Daniel tells me that "I really should have waited for a corner booth because I have a hard time with people being behind me ever since Iraq". Really? It's fucking Applebee's. I don't think that Osama is gonna jump out of the woodwork and kick your ass! So, we got up to leave and I looked at what Daniel had written down as a tip. There was a line through the tip spot. Yup. He was gonna stiff our server. OH HELL NO! I told him to fix it NOW. He did and I personally delivered it to the server and apologized. After that, I was done. So let me list the transgressions:

1. No food in the house but a 52" flat screen TV.

2. 5 "shirts" ( but really only 3 of them count) but a 52" flat screen TV.

3. Constantly trying to get at it after I told him repeatedly that this was not going to be sex fest 09.

4. The "PTSD". I don't buy it. If you have PTSD if fucks you up to go anywhere. Not just Applebee's. You'd be paranoid about the farmer behind you in line at Wal-Mart.
5. Not tipping the waiter.
6. He looked like he was going to die. 150lbs on a 6'2" frame is not a good look. Not for him at least.

7. He told me he spent $600 on his daughter for Christmas, but has no clothes, no food, no furniture and a 52" flat screen TV.

8. I can't lie very well.

I realized that we are two VERY DRASTICALLY different people. That, and Sunday morning when I woke up I discovered Daniel sleeping on the floor. I woke up at 7:30am. He woke up at 11:30am and I asked him why he slept on the floor. Well...apparantly he tried to cuddle up to me the night before and I (while sleeping!!) said "ugh, move!" and then, "This is a waste of my time". Talk about breaking it to him gently! Jesus. I had no response when he told me I had said that because, well, I was done. Needless to say I was on my way to the airport 2 hours later. And guess who took me? You're never going to believe this one; Don. My ex-fiance Don took me to the airport. And it wasn't awkward at all shockingly enough! It was actually kinda fun!
So we got the airport at 2:55, flight was at 3:15. I haul ass up there to go through security and the metal detector goes off, they make me step aside to get searched. It's 3:05. They pulled EVERYTHING out of the diaper bag and tested it. Really. Do I look that dangerous? Does Ry look that dangerous? Turns out it was my wal-mart bra clasp setting it off. Thanks a lot Vassarette! So I start RUNNING to the gate. Mind you Ry is in a snuggie and I've got a purse and a diaper bag too. This had to look hilarious and/or pitiful. Either way it sucked! And when I got to the gate, my flight was....guess....DELAYED!! Gah! Oh well, ran for nothing! Eventually we got on the plane and took off to Philly. Here's a picture of Ry in the food court at Philly. Now, Philly's airport I love! Lots of shopping, everyone was polite! It was great! Then we flew from Philly to Indy sitting next to a Pilot with whom Ry was fascinated! Of course, he had an awesome hat and badge! So we get to Indy and here I am again, trying to wrangle all the luggage and the baby and the carseat AND to remember where I parked! Finally I found it, but damn! So then we drove to Anderson and spent the rest of my Vacay with Amanda and her wee ones and we had a blast! She has a baby girl who is 9 days older than Ry but such a peanut! She's only like 13lbs! Here's some pictures of the lovers!

Aren't they just too cute?! They loved each other! And she and I are like long lost sisters! Strange how we met, but I love it! We've got a great back story for our friendship!
So, even though everything didn't go as planned, I don't regret it, because if I hadn't gone, I'd have never known, and let's be honest, be going there and it not working out is a LOT easier than having him come here and it not working out. :)

Long Lost Brother

So yesterday the boys and I headed over to my Uncle Todd & Aunt Kate's house. We're sitting around and I asked how my newest little brother, Dakota, is doing. Kate showed me some pictures and they told me he's up to 5lbs now, which is double what he was born at, so yay! Then Kate asked me if I had ever met my other brother Brandon. At first I thought she was talking about my bio dad's step-son, but she was talking about my half-brother that I knew existed, but knew nothing about other than he was male and younger than me. Thus began my search for my little brother. And I found him! And he wants to meet me too! I'm so excited!

new day

It's a new day...but I'm still creeped out about the nasty jacking-off-on-the-phone creepy stalker guy...but I changed my number so hopefully *fingers crossed* it's all good now.

One week from today Ry and I are flying to New York to see Daniel! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get there!

Tonight I have to go babysit my nephew Zachary for 2 hours, that's gonna be fun, except for the fact that Ry will be exhausted by the time we leave, and I'm gonna have to do a drive thru dinner. least I got my tax refund back today! woohoo!!

In other news, I have a giant pimple and it's really pissing me off. My sister tells me to stop whining cuz I never get them, but damnit, when I do they're awful!! Like, make you wanna put a paper bag over your head awful! Yuck!
So I got some new siggies from siggie town today and I absolutely love them!!

Aren't they beautiful?!?! I think these are my favorites ever! Amy did an amazing job! Thanks Amy!

Ok, well....that's it for now.... be continued.........

I'm fucking scared

Last week I received a phone call from a Restricted number at about 8:30am. When I answered it the person said in a low breathy voice "I wanna fuck you in your ass" I hung up. They called back about 15 times and when I answered I yelled into the phone "STOP FUCKING CALLING ME!!"

I just received another phone call. Again restricted. And again they said the same thing, "I wanna fuck you in your ass". This time, I stayed on the phone and listened and it sounded like this guy was masturbating while he was on the phone. Like he was getting off on scaring the shit out of me. Well guess what, it worked! I called the police and they're sending someone out to take a statement because I'm fucking terrified. Crazy ass shit happens these days and I don't want to be another girl who's story makes it into Cosmo warning other girls of what I should have done. Fuck that!

Men, Monsoon's, and Meetings, oh my!

So, it's been a minute since I blogged. Dawn is due in 15 days, and I'm really excited to meet Ry's little brother Addison! Is that weird? Well, even if it is, I don't care! She and I have become really good friends and we're there for each other, because really, we know Adam won't be and we want the boys to know each other. The new baby that's due in July...honestly, I could care less because I despise it's mother. I think she's manipulative and deceptive and I don't trust her as far as I can throw her. Which is not that far! She of course now has her default pic on myspace set as her ultrasound picture and her new myspace name is "fakin bacon pimp shit" of course spelled with all the really cool upper case, lower case, ! instead of an I, and a $'re 32 and you still do that shit? Anyway. Since I last blogged they broke up and got back together twice...(and I'm the immature one? please!) Oh, and you know how she's supposedly on bed rest? Well...her status lately has been things like, had a long day at work....I'm so tired!, Back to work tomorrow! The weekends aren't long enough! etc, etc, etc....really now....bed rest means no work....I was on bedrest with Kaiden and threatened it when I was pg with Ry...NO WORK...very interesting....but oh well, Adam's dumb enough that he won't question it. He thinks with his dick. Always has, always will.

Moving on....

Work is going really really well. I had my yearly review last week and my boss was very pleased with the work I've been doing and really complimented me on how much I've improved over the last year. (I started where I am as the assistant property manager and 2 months later we got bought out by the company I work for now and I moved up to Property Manager.) When I started I didn't know Jack. The previous manager didn't really tell me much about the financial aspect of the business or auction procedures and a lot of things the previous company did was illegal and wrong, and I didn't know. So, everone just assumed I knew and I had to figure almost all of it out on my own, plus learn all new software, and I was pregnant and I moved, and yeah, it was a nightmare. So we discussed my future goals with the company. I told him that I want to move up into a marketing position at the home office eventually. He said that if that's what I want he's going to help me get there. So this week we had our quarterly meeting in Indy. ( I got a full night's sleep!! Yay!!!) We have a new property manager, Karen, who is older than time and by the end of yesterday I wanted to punch her. She's old, but I wanted to punch her. And here's why:

We had a brainstorming session/challenge where we were divided into 4 groups and everyone had a different challenge to come up with a solution to where money was no object. Ours was how to get more people in the door, LeAnn was the one writing everything down, I was the speaker, and LeAnn and I were the ones coming up with EVERYTHING while Karen shoots everything down. 'Well we don't have anything in LaPorte. That wont work.' A constant barrage of no, no, no, stupid, hate it, no, no, negative, life sucks, eat shit and get the picture. So finally I looked at her and I'm like "look, we cannot just focus on YOU we have to focus on everyone's properties. We've got 5 minutes left and we've got nothing. Be quiet and quit shooting everything down!" We ended up coming up with a great idea that everybody loved that Karen claimed "just would never work." Kiss it ya old bat!

So after the meeting I went and met Autumn, the girl who sued me almost 4 years ago and I was on judge judy with, at a local bar. Her father passed away last year and he was awesome and they were very close. I found out and sent her a myspace message sending my condolences and we both decided that the past was the past and we wanted to reconnect and catch up with each other. It was so much fun! I missed hanging out with her so much!

So I left Indy around 5:15...during, apparantly, monsoon season in central Indiana! I mean, it was awful!! Stop lights out everywhere, traffic backed up forever! It took me almost 2 hours to get out of Indy! And I wasn't even downtown! I was on 96th St.!! I got back to Elkhart and got my kids at 8:40, packed them up, drove home, pulled into my complex and went "DAMNIT!!!"
No power. No fucking power. So I ran in, lit a candle, gathered up clothes and diapers and such and went BACK to my moms and stayed the night there. Yeah, fun.

Today I get to work and Microsoft has updated my computer, and in the process, severely effed it up! Got it fixed, but for a second there I was panicking hardcore!

So life's been interesting, as usual, but good. Oh yeah, we got cable and all that at home now! So now when Kaiden is irritating the holy bejesus out of me, I can just turn on the Imagination Movers and he's in a whole other world! Score!

Well...that's it for now...happy blogging!!
