Doctor Doctor tell me the news...

So today I went into my doctors appointment, knowing I was going to see Dr. Callahan cause last time I saw Dr. Dillon...and last time I lied about my weight by 2 pounds, which this week I gained 2 pounds so I lied about those too. I should say I am 217 (ew yikes!) but I said I was 214 cause last time I was 215 and said I was 213. I'm really bad.
Anyway, he said that everything is fine and that the baby is head down already. He said that the pain in my ribs/side is just going to get worse cause the baby has at least another 2 inches to grow! Which I knew, but he always likes to make me feel better! :)

I go in 3 weeks (Jan. 21) for an ultrasound to see exactly how big this baby is.
Today it hit me...I'm going to give birth....soon.
I know the next couple weeks are going to go by fast, with New Years only a few days away, Claire's birthday party, Olivia's birthday party, Parker's birthday party....then the baby shower.
Then comes February, which I'll just be big and lazy and then right around the corner is March!
I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is coming to an end. I have been feeling really pregnant lately just with being in pain 24/7.

Anyway...I need to work on these bills and then I'm going to start watching the first season of Big Love. I bought seasons 1 and 2 at best buy for half off! They are like 55 bucks, so it was pretty sweet that I pretty much got both for the price of one!

Happy 29th everyone.

Oh 2008.

What a year you have been.
First off, the holiday was nice. The in-laws were in town until today, we took them back to LAX and they flew back to Indiana and then had a 2 hour drive home. Hopefully it went well since the weather has been bad back there.
We got a lot done while they were here in the baby's room. All the painting is done and the crib and changer/dresser are put together. I will have pictures soon.
The only thing that really needs to be done is the flooring. Which, hopefully will be done by the shower at the end of January.
The color turned out really good and it's really bright so it helps make the room look bigger and I know once the new floor is in it will even help that much more.
I am getting really excited about the baby comming. I know I still have 2 1/2 months, but I feel like it is going to come by so fast because the past two months have been like here and gone before the blink of an eye.
I think Matthew is starting to really get into the whole pregnancy thing now.. he would never touch my belly or really talk too much about the baby, but now that you can SEE how big I am getting, baby not fat.. I think it opened his eyes to.. holy crap we are having a baby!
Plus getting the nursery ready really does make you think.. holy crap there will be a baby sleeping in this crib!
Although sometimes I do still feel blah...I know the second I go into labor and see that baby come out, it will be a whole different story.

Anyway.. I hope everyone had a really wonderful Christmas, by the look of the blogs, it looks like everyone did! I know next year is going to be wild! More 1st birthdays, more babies, more 2 and 3rd birthdays! I really can't wait to see what 2009 has to offer all of us girls and our families!

Well I need to lay down because this child really likes to be in my ribs when I am sitting down.. Amy how did you get through it?! PS I need to get my bangs cut, actually by this point my hair just needs to be cut! I'll call you.. haha.

Well enjoy the rest of 2008 everyone. We only have 3 days left!
I love you all.

ps. pray for James & Anni & Emerick as they venture to Maryland like tomorrow or Tuesday. Be safe guys.

So our computer broke awhile ago, so I haven't been on this much.
Just wanted to say that I'm 28 weeks now, and the baby likes to be in my ribs 24/7. I'm not really liking it because I HAVE to sit straight up and it's annoying. But I guess good for my back?
I got a body pillow last night and it made me sleep better, other than the annoying cramp I got in my leg. Matt's really good at waking up and getting it out of me!
My in-laws are in town until Sunday. We might go to the movies on Christmas.. weird huh?
I always thought people were weird to do that, but this Christmas is going to be so mellow and there aren't going to be 10 of us so it will be nice.
I like that it is raining and cold, it makes it feel more like Christmas.
Um I met Emerick for the first time on Saturday! He's amazing.
I can't wait to have my very own baby boy!
Anyway, back to work.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008


My farts are gross. and I have to wipe my butt after I fart.. cause really they are sharts.

Monday, December 8, 2008


Matt has been throwing up since 8:30 last night.
He threw up at 830, 1130 & 530 this morning. Now it has turned into the shits.
He is King of throw up. I have seen him throw up more times than he's heard me fart (haha jk)

To add to this horrible day, Matt tried calling his boss and OHHHH they disconnected our CELL PHONES!!!
I just paid the bill on the 24th, and our internet and land line still work and it's all on the same bill. Cool huh!!!!!

Oh I hate today. I think I'm going to go into work and then leave. Matt is horrible when he's sick and I don't want to leave him here alone, especially since he's throwing up! He's like a baby and I feel bad. I just hope I don't get sick... which I think he has food poisoning.. he's prone to that.

Sunday, December 7, 2008


So right now I'm really annoyed. Funny right...
First off, Matt and I LAG major when it comes to getting stuff done, except at the same time I don't feel that I lag because 1-If I could do the things I need done, then I would do them and 2-I keep asking him to do them.. and he just doesn't!
I have asked SO many times that we could FINISH the babies room and by finish I mean get all his nintendo, comic book, music related everything OUT of there! Yes I have a few things, but nothing compared to what he has in there.
We are on a time limit because we have only 2 weeks to get the floor done, but really probably just this week because that is the only time this guy has to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus his parents are coming in two weeks and it needs to be done before they get here so we can put together the furniture!!!
I am really stressing out because I feel that Matt doesn't care! I understand the baby won't be here for another 3 months, but time FLIES and the next TWO months are PACKED. We have something EVERY WEEKEND (except Jan. 10) until February!
And then we will only have 1 month to get ready.
If the babies room was taken care of, then I wouldn't be a stress case like I have been lately and I would get off his back about doing things.
The only 2 things that I can't do to help is move the TV and the Futon! But seriosuly if I wasn't pregnant then I freaking would do all this myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just needed to VENT!

but on a good note, Lori's shower was good and fun. I hope everyone that went had fun!!
I am so tired from it, but I find energy to clean that room!
Which is why i am sitting here posting this, i just asked matt to help and he said let me finish reading this chapter.. so i wait and then i hear him come upstairs and he's all um im going to take a bath!!!!!!!!!!!!
what?!? what?!?!?!?!?!

F. back to doing what I can by myself!

No Pictures Please

So the past two times we have gone to get an ultrasound, August is in weird positions and we can NEVER get a picture of his profile! It's so annoying. I've seen his legs a million times, but never that face!!!!!
Today he had his pinkie (we think) up and it was cute. I just wish I could see that face of his.
Only 100 days until the due date! Kind of crazy.

Judooooo CHOP

So ever since I could put my hand over my stomach and feel the baby kick, I swear he's like playing teatherball with his feet. This morning he was going insane, it's pretty amazing though.

Sunday, November 30, 2008


Last night I was getting on the freeway at Los Berros and I saw a little kitten that was on the side of the road, I was freaking out cause I felt horrible if I just left it there.
I pulled over and got out, but it was so dark and I couldn't see anything, I couldn't see it's glowing eyes, and I started saying kitty kitty...
But then I just got in the car and left and tried not to think about it. It was like seriously an 8 week old kitten just chilling near the freeway.
I had to just leave and not think about it because it was making me sad. If I could have gotten it, I would have kept it until the shelter was open so at least I knew it wouldn't die on the side of the road, and maybe at the shelter someone would adopt it.

Finally part 1 & 2

Finally: We are back home
Finally: This morning Matt felt baby kick for the first time! We were laying in the hotel bed "Days Inn" in Barstow, and I felt the baby kick and I moved my hand to where I thought it was, then boom, I felt it and I grabbed Matt's hand and was like PUT YOUR HAND HERE! Again.. boom. Matt smiled huge, it was amazing!!!
It was weird cause I was laying on my right side and usually I lay on my left and he was going wild. Well he kicked like 4 times. It was awesome.

I hope to see people tonight because we have not seen some people in almost 3 weeks!!!!

Good to be back home, but Colorado is pretty.

Attn Mom's part 2

So just wondering what items you couldn't live WITHOUT!? I am just adding things to my registry and i feel like i could be forgetting things..

Also, how did you store your breast milk after pumping?
What bottles did you like best.. just new mom things that i dont know, and if all you moms could just give me some tips that would be fabulous.
I can't believe november is like over and there really is only 3 1/2 months to go until baby August is here!
The time is flying it's crazy.!!!

Thursday, November 20, 2008

In Heaven.

Today, about an hour ago, Matthew's grandma Elizabeth passed away.
I never know how to feel when our elders pass.
I only saw Grandma Elizabeth 3-4 times.
The first time I met her was at Grandpa Schurman's funeral. That was a really hard day for me, never meeting him, but knowing how much he meant to Matthew, hurt to see the family in pain.
This was the last Grandparent Matt had, I think that's what hurts me the most now.
I still have 2 grandmother's, a grandfather, and a great grandmother.
I feel that you never know how much you love your grandparents until their passing.

Monday, November 17, 2008

Attn: Mothers

What sling/carrier do you think is the best?
And what size do you get?
Thank you.

Oh Yesterday..

So yesterday started off ok...
Matt and I went to Panera Bread for breakfast. Then we went into town to get my oil changed and go to the beach. On the way into town Matt got a message that there was a show tonight in Anaheim...Dennis wanted to see if he wanted to go. I was kind of pissed cause we already made plans to go to the beach, but then I just forgot about it. We got to Mullahey Ford to get my oil changed. It was 10:30. We went on a walk to get Gibby a frisbe and new leash and harness. We got done and started walking back. It was like 11:15. The car wasn't done yet so we sat inside and watched the ILLINI/OHIO game. Then I saw my car pull up so I went to pay and the tech came in and said "your air filter is dirty, do you want a new one.." and I said yes, and he told me it would be another 20 minutes.. so I was like whatever.
Back to watching the game.. 20 minutes went by and the guy game in and was like, "did you know your check engine light is on...?" and Matt was like it wasn't on before we came.. I told the guy my gas light is on.. and he's like maybe that has something to do with it, get some gas and drive around for a few days and see if it goes off...
That worried me..ALOT.
So we started the car and it didn't sound the same, didn't run the same.. I just thought it was the gas issue.. but really I knew it wasn't, I just didn't want to freak out.
So I get gas, the car is still f'ing up. Then Matt tells me to take him to United Rentals so he can get a ride with Dennis and go to the show.
Well Matt never told me he was for sure going to the show, so I instantly became PISSED.
We got to United Rentals and I just burst into tears because I was so upset that he wasn't going to the beach and that my car is freaking F'D!
Then this semi needed to pull in and he kept honking at me before I was even able to move my car which pissed me off even more!
Finally I just left and was balling my eyes out (pregnancy thing I guess) and started driving home. Then my contact fell out, so I called Matt to come get me at Los Berros exit and drive me home.
I turned the car off and Matt got there and tried starting the car.. um didn't start, totally died!
I was freaking out. SO I called my brother and he told me to check the oil and make sure they actually put oil in the car! So we did and there was oil. I couldn't think straight and was getting so pissed, so I just told Matt let's take it back because my brother also said they probably didn't hook something up and it's causing the car to get to much air and making it turn off!
So we headed towards AG, but what.. the car was totally fine! The check engine light was off, so we went back to Santa Maria and we got to the stop light right by the house and it DIED! The jack ass in front of us kept honking his horn and it's like her mother f'er the car isn't starting!
So I called Mullahey Ford and the guy was like come back in and we will see what's wrong.
Which, don't you think they should have done that in the first place, since we said that light wasn't on before?!
So I get there and he's like.."the censor wasn't hooked back up to the air something or another..I'm so sorry and wish we could reimburse you for the gas to get back here.." but he did give me a free oil change for the next time I come.
I wasn't pissed after that, because I knew it wasn't serious and they admitted their mistake.

SO after all that.. which ended up being 2:30 by the time that was all takin care of, I met up with Lori and we went to Avila with Gibby and Gunnie, it was really fun and I'm glad my day was getting better!
Then we went to Lubrillons (Caleb, Brian, Dillons) to watch the fight, it was good. Saw people, saw Faye, held Faye until she had to get the boob. Felt Jackson kick and it was amazing. I can't wait to actually feel August kick me from the outside!

It turned out to be a good day.

Move It Mister

So I had lunch with Danielle and Lori today and Lori said she feels Jackson all the time..
Then I got to wondering.. maybe these things in my stomach are really August and not gas..
I mean you all know I'm the most gassiest person you have ever met.. but to me I was like wow this gas is crazy in my stomach.. then as I was sitting here lurking blogs and baby items..
I thought.. wait.. maybe this movement is actually August (i know i just said that above) but really I finally think that I actually do feel baby move. It feels like gas, but I don't fart and when I have gas I fart, and it's loud and sometimes smells like acid.

Whatever my back hurts and I told myself I would be in bed at 10 30, its now 11 15

Oh what do I do...

So my cat (champion, the larger one) was having a pee problem.. just peeing everywhere..
Then finally it went away, but tonight it came back. RIGHT in front of me and matt he peed on Gibbys dog bed (which she liked the first day and then doesn't really care anymore, but it was $25$$!)
Matt freaked out and I was pissed but just whatever, then I got to thinking.. this can't happen when August JAMES Bandy arrives. I really don't know what to do. The vet said I need to bring him in because he might have something wrong, but hello.. I don't have $200 to spend on a vet bill right now!
So much of me what's to give him up for adoption, but there's SO many cats out there that deserve a home before I give him up.. and then I don't want to do that because I love him and I will miss him, and I'm afraid Stewie (the other fat cat) will be really sad with out.
I really don't know what to do and I will probably cry when I go to bed tonight, because this situation SUCKS.
I am an animal lover...and I HATE when people just give away their animals like it's no big deal.

PS if you didn't catch the "james" part.. Matt and I (more Matt, cause I already decided) that we are going with AUGUST JAMES BANDY!
August- Matt's Great Grandma
James- My Dad & Brother's middle name.
I am happy with this name. Very much happy.

Panera Bread

It is open and I am going there in like 30 minutes with Lori & Danielle.. if they EVER get here!
I'm so excited, the baby is crying cause he wants food. (I just think that when my stomach growls, it's him saying MOMMY FEED ME NOW!) Is that weird?


I woke up at 6:45 to take Gibby out and saw on the news that more than 80 homes have been destroyed. So sad.
The weather today: HOT & WINDY, no bueno to fight a fire.

Thursday, November 13, 2008


Title, not funny..because tonight me, Matt, and Dennis drove to SB and Matt was like...look there's a fire.. at first I thought it was just off the freeway, brush fire.. turns out it's this CRAZY HUGE fire that had only been burning for less than an hour when we saw it.
We went to the show, that was cancelled because there was no power, we stood outside for awhile watching the fire, it was really close.. my eyes hurt and there was ash all over me, and it smelled like smoke so bad.
It was kinda surreal being so close, but I was so sad for those people, possibly OPRAH, who lost their home or live stock...we drove down State street and it was like a ghost town, only 1 stop light was working.. and people really don't know how to drive when stop lights aren't working it was kinda scary.

When I got home and saw the fire on the news.. it had grown SO much from when we saw it..
It looked like all of SB was on fire.
I hope everyones ok. As far as I know there have been at least 7 houses burnt, I'm sure that total will go up over night. The winds are crazy and it's SO hot (Santa Ana.. thank you not.)

I'm tired and went to Santa Barbara to go to a show and eat Chipotle and ended up watching a fire and eating In N Out.


Monday, November 10, 2008


This wind is giving me the worst headache in the world. I really can't stand it, even though I do love the cold/wind, right now I'm not enjoying it.

Sunday, November 9, 2008


So I really hate Verizon right now (not the cell phone service). We have verizon internet and phone...which we never use the house phone any more so I went to cancel it and the guy was like giving me this huge speech of why I shouldn't.. so I hung up on him. I called Comcast (I love this company) to get high speed cable internet, instead of Verizon DSL, which ends up being a couple bucks cheaper in the long run..
So I order the modem and it arrives Friday, I waited until tonight to install the crap to get us up and running on CABLE instead of DSL.
I did everything right, and called Comcast cause I couldn't get on the internet.. he told me I should be able to.. so he walked me through a few steps and then told me to turn off the computer.. I did...
(while in my head thinking..oh God I hope the computer comes back on...because I have been having this awful feeling that our computer is going to break real is 5 years old and has been through ALOT..we have had like 3 new hard drives put in it!)
So I go to turn the computer back on.. and it gives me this CRAZY message about the power battery being low or something.. I freaked out.. but it still works..except it doesn't accept the cable modem! oh and we haven't had speakers in like a year!)

SO.. Matt has a Dell account which we used to buy this computer... so I think our Christmas present for our self will be a new computer.. I know we don't have the money.. but we can't live without a computer. I do all the bills online, we have a baby due in March and this will be the only way for distant family and friends to see baby August (James.. I hope that's the middle name cause I LOVE it).

Whatever. I also have done almost all the laundry and I'm really proud of myself and I can't wait for desperate housewives tonight!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Sunday.

So Sundays I like to sleep... and I'm not meaning like a 1 hour nap. I literally like to sleep ALL DAY. I just get up and out of bed and go right to the couch. I've been on the couch since 7:30 this morning and just now finally decided I should get up and shower. I really don't like being this lazy but it just feels so good to sleep or rest all day!
I do though need to do like 10 loads of laundry. So I guess I'm going to shower and then start the wonderful tasks of CLOTHES!
Matt and I are going to Colorado in 2 weeks for 1 week so I guess I should get a head start on this laundry because I know if I don't it will be like this in 2 weeks and then we won't have any clothes!
So yeah that's really it.
I'm bored and the weather is weird outside, really cold and windy.
Sometimes it makes me miss Chicago.
Sometimes I want to move to a place that's cold, is that weird.. probably.
I love California, but I don't love California's high prices on EVERYTHING.

Whatever that's another post.

Stewie in cups, Champ on table, Gibby outside.


is driving me CRAZY at night.
First off, she sleeps in bed with us, which today I'm going to buy a dog bed...cause that HAS to stop, which I know is going to be really hard.
Second, she licks and licks and licks and licks for days in the middle of the night.. so 1. the bed just smells like dog and 2. it keeps me up at night!
So when I get home from work today I am giving her a bath, her flea meds (even though she doesn't have them and this will be the first time I give them to her.. but I'm scared cause I think she's sick so maybe I'll wait until she's better), cleaning the sheets and cover, and forcing her to lay in that dog bed.
So I know tonight will be another really hard night.. but whatever.
AHHH, Stewie at about 6:30 scratches and scratches the door for like 15 minutes straight. He's so annoying, he's also the cat that grabs you when you get in the shower cause he wants some lovin or the water in the sink turned on. He's also driving me crazy.
I think being pregnant has made me hate these animals.. not really hate, but just not care as much.. which is really sad cause Stewie has been with us for 4 years and I love that stupid cat to death.. but he freaking drives me crazy.
THEN Champion.. he's another story.. when I take Gibby out in the morning he just follows me meowingggggg like crazy.. he wants to be fed! (this is why he's so fat..) He just meows and meows and meows and then when you go to get the food lets out this HUGE MEEEEEEOOOOOW in a high pitch, it's actually really funny.. but that cat is SO lazy and does NOTHING all day long. I'll leave from work and come home for lunch and he will be in the SAME spot, then when I come home from work at the end of the day.. SAME spot!

My life is going to get wild after baby comes with these three animals.
Oh so help me God.

Wednesday, November 5, 2008


I never want to clean, then I get in this crazy cleaning mood, but I get tired too fast to really finish anything. Our laundry is always piled so high, it's mad crazyness.
I think Gibby is sick, I think she ate something (cat litter) cause she has been pooping weird, I think it's just going through her system and if she's not having more solid poops in the next few days I'll have to take her to the vet, which is always a good $200 bucks. So I'm hoping she gets better.
I also stepped in dog crap last night when leaving Loris.. and we also almost hit a deer on the way home from BUNCO. It was crazy.

Most of this is sarcastic...but some is so true.

Why wasn't Oprah the VP? That would have made a sweet team.
I'm part of youth of america, but I'm not the part that voted for NObama (as Amy would put it).

Let's all hope that this man lies less than the others, or else Canada's population will be going up.

I love you Michelle and your face last night was worth a million words and explained exactly how I felt, without even saying anything.

And WHY the F were people crying?!? SERIOUSLY....WHY!?!?!
If I were to shed any tears they would be of disgust!

Have a good day, knowing your new president is Barack Hussein Obama.
One is quoted saying "Obama is the Bush of democrats..." Take that how you will.


Tuesday, November 4, 2008


Today is election day, a big day for America.
I'm nervous, I hate politics, I'm glad it will be over.

Go Vote.

Monday, November 3, 2008

Thank you..

Anni & Pam,
For the best outfit yet!!!! I totally forgot how much I miss H&M, they have really cute baby things! I need to go there now!!
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, October 31, 2008


So I wake up to go pee, and Matt is in the bathroom...with a BLUE face. He is suppose to be the corpes of Walt Disney...yeah....
I am not dressing up, which I am kinda sad about, but whatever, I'm driving around all day dropping candy off at plumbing companies, so I'm kinda ok with it.
However, I can't believe it is the end of October already!
In 4 1/2 months.. I'll have a baby boy. CRAZY.

We go to Colorado in 3 weeks, I'm excited about it, we are driving.. crazy I know.
Um that's it. I'm eating Raisin Bran!

Thursday, October 30, 2008


So I have been trying to eat alot of Raisin Bran because I couldn't poop for awhile, but now I can and it's good. BUT today I have had the worst gas ever! I fart for like 30 seconds straight and then it just is the worst smell ever, it smells like poo that has been in the toilet for like days and oh gosh it's nasty. Matt got up because it was so bad.
Whatever.. that's me.

Wednesday, October 29, 2008


So I got home from work today..and had SO much energy, which is really uncommon. Usually I just want to come home, lay down and watch tv. But today, I took gibby on a walk, longer than normal, then I cleaned the kitchen and the living room and started some laundry and just picked up around the house. I am amazed at myself right now! I think it is a relief that I found out what I am having because it was driving me crazy sometimes. Tonight once I settle down, I will start on the blanket again.

That's all for now.

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

boy oh boy!

It's a boy!!!!!!!!!
August Bandy (middle name is still up in the air alittle...)
It's CRAZY & I am SHOCKED!!!!!
Matt was really freaking excited!
ok BYE!!!!!

This morning..

First off, I slept like crizap, so did Matt, but it was cause he was hot.. oh and I was freezing cold.
Second, I took a shower and brushed my tooth, then threw up..? I started gagging and it was gross and then threw up in the sink..
Third.. I AM READY!
Fourth. I'm really scared the baby won't be in a position for them to tell me if it's a boy or girl!
Fifth.. I'm really ready to find out though.

Monday, October 27, 2008

For Taryn

just do it.

Tomorrow Tomorrow

So tomorrow.. AHH
Today Lori goes for her cool ultrasound, I can't wait to hear from her even though they are 99% sure it's a boy! But still I'm sure that ultrasound is going to be AMAZING.

I hope this day goes by FAST!

Saturday, October 25, 2008


I met Owen & Faye today!!!
It was amazing. I met Owen when Taryn was getting her hair did by D. I held him, and he was so little and so amazing. Then he farted HUGE and I just laughed. He was adorable!!!!
Then I met Faye at her house. She too was so little and so amazing. Claire was being so funny around her.. petting her and saying Ella, instead of Faye! Those girls are both too cute for words.

It made me realize that in 20 weeks.. I'll have one of my own. It's so weird holding someone elses Miracle... I just feel like I have to be SO careful, it scares me. But I know once I have my own bundle of joy.. it will just come natural. I'm so excited about that.

Today was an all around good day.




So I was laying in bed it was like right now and I got up because I heard old man starting his car and I was like YES! here is goes..
Green Car, White with Red Stripe Car, White Car.. that's the order they started in..
Well he wants to drive his white with red stripe car so he starts it moves it.. so now it's
Green Car, GAP, White Car, White with Red Stripe Car...
Then he moved the White Car into the GAP so no one can park there! So the final order
Green Car, White Car.. and drives away in White with Red Stripe Car
NOW when he gets back from his daily event of NOTHING it will be like this again
Green Car, White with Red Stripe Car, White Car

HE'S CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, October 24, 2008

It's Friday!

My weekend plans:
Saturday: Breakfast at Village Cafe, SLO, Georgias Birthday BBQ
Sunday: Get my ring fixed, Dinner for Jon Millers Birthday
Tuesday: Find out what I am having!

So today I was just feeling weird. All morning my stomach was just weird, and around 1 I had this crazy sharp pain that was like 3 seconds long. Then around 3 I was really lasted a little over an hour so I called the doctor just because I felt like it wasn't normal. The nurse said she thinks it could be my ligaments and that I need more calcium. So Matt is at the store buying me OJ and calcium pills.
I can't wait to go to the doctor on Tuesday, not only to find out the sex, but because I have a million questions that I'm actually going to ask.
Well.. until next time.

To Anni

They wouldn't let me post pictures, so here are the websites!

Crib Bedding

Finally.. I have decided on the crib bedding.
For Lola Marie: Cotton Tale Design: Poppy
For August Schurman: Cotton Tale Design: Pirates Cove

Pretty much really cute.
I'm going to bed. One More Week. AH.

Amazing/Not Amazing!

Faye is here. That is amazing! I can't wait to see her and Erin!

Not Amazing:
Having people park their trucks with the boats attached or huge ass RV's across the street from your place even though A. They don't live around here AT ALL or B. They live right down the street but instead of parking it in front of their house, they park it in front of yours. oh and of course C. The crazy old man.

Poop already!

I just got done taking Gibby out, which seemed like forever, trying to get her to poop before we went upstairs for bed. I swear I was out there for like 30 minutes! We walked up and down the street like 10 times. FINALLY she pooped.

I on the other had have pooped twice today without a problem. My poops are weird. I'll poop once a day for a week, then I won't poop for a week, then I'll poop twice a day for a week. I'm really weird. Also, this family has had some gas problems lately, but I think that's cause I had like 4 servings of beans in 2 days!

Now I'm going to look for baby crib bedding.. I need to decide already! Well, although I won't make my final decision until I know if it's a Lola or August.


It's Monday..

So Monday's are sometimes really horrible or are sometimes not that bad. But I think this Monday is going to be horrible, and that sucks.
Sometimes I like going to work...and sometimes I don't. I just wish I could stay home and get things done that I don't want to do on the weekend...because it's the weekend!
Although Matt and I got some things accomplished yesterday. We started cleaning out the babies room. We put a bookcase down stairs, got rid of the old couch, moved the other bookcase that was by the door. It opened up that area so much and looks so much better. Every weekend I hope to just clear that room out a little bit more. It's mostly all Matt's stuff. He asked me if he could keep his comic books in the babies closet! I said.. um NO! That closet is going to be full and there's no room for them! He's really going to have to think of another place for them.
All his records are going in our room, so that means NO cats allowed not only in the babies room, but now our room. Those poor cats.
Um so a week from tomorrow, is the big day. FINALLY.

Adios mi amigos.

I like to turn the water on in the shower, then take like 5 minutes to do something else.. and then finally get in the shower. I don't know why, but I ALWAYS do it.
I waste water, whatever.
I also leave poop in the toilet for Matt to find.
Have a good day.

Sad...real sad.

So last night at about 11:00, I heard this crazy yelling outside. I'm pretty sure it was our neighbors in D, they are renters that at first I thought I would like, but they ended up to just be really WT.
So, anyway.. I was sound asleep and then I hear.. DANIEL (I think that was the name), GIVE ME MY F*CKING PHONE BACK.. DANIEL. Then the guy...NO... (couldn't make out what else he was saying, I'm sure he was walking away, and she was at the doorway.) That went on forever, then the saddest part was.. towards the end I heard a little boy say DADDY NO.. DADDY DADDY.. I was like the worst tone I could ever hear in a little kid, you could tell he was SO SCARED and didn't know what to do and he was crying and yelling for his Daddy. I was almost in tears because I just didn't know what was going on, or if that girl was in trouble or what. I have heard them argue a lot though, but this was different. I really hope that everything is okay, but I also hope they move soon.
That's my great morning post of the day, and I had Apple Jacks and they were amazing.

PS it's half way to FRIDAY!

So I have lost 2 pounds since my last doctor's visit...according to my scale, which I always go on before I go to the doctor so I know what mine says the day I go there.
Is that weird?
I also feel that I'm getting sick.. well I actually think it might be the weather, I just have the sneezes and a crazy stuffed up nose.
I also don't like 2 pairs of maternity pants I bought at Old Navy, so I'll be returning those.
And for the thing that annoys me the most.. dogs licking themselves. EW.

Have a gooooood Tuesday.

One More Thing


Oh Life...

So, this is really personal, but I don't care at this moment cause I want people to realize why I stress out like I do.

First off, money is always tight, and I'm sure it is for everyone, even those that don't want to admit it (like me). Last year our property tax bill was $860.00 +873.00 due in December, then the same 2 payments due in April. For some reason it didn't seem that bad last year, maybe cause we had money saved up from when we bought the house, and then we got money back from our taxes for the April payment (haha, well not really since we actually owe the feds $4000). Well last week I opened the mail and what do you know, our property taxes decided to creep up on us this year out of nowhere (i was totally expecting them, just didn't think about it) and I opened it up.. $1600.00 due in December and $1600.00 due in April. I don't know why but I was shocked! I think because they are about the same as last year and the value of property has shot WAY down! I pretty much hate the government and the federal tax people, the freaking tax bill is more than we pay in a month.. I know you are supposed to save up for this thing, like it's part of your house bill.. but how can people save with the economy the way it is?!

Being young, and owning a house.. isn't always cool. Since we have lived here we have had to get a new frig and new water heater. I'm sure sooner than later we will need a new washer and dryer.. ours SUCKS. We also need a new BATHTUB because this one is SICK and I refuse to let my baby bathe in it.

Well there really is no point to this, other than as of right now the Bandy's are BROKE, not only do we have tax bills, but we have normal every day life bills.

With a baby on the way it freaks me out to even think about how we will get by, cause I really don't know. I'm going to start buying diapers and wipes and clip coupons and only buy on-sale stuff. No more target shopping sprees or lunch and dinner eat outs every other day/night.

Life is just crazy. Save what you can, even if it's only $75 a month (that's my plan right now, sad I know!)

So I hope you enjoyed a glance at my personal finances, I'm just letting you all know.. think before you buy anything that's unnecessary!

I love my friends & family.

Baby Kick?

So first off, I was told that my blog was boring.. well I JUST STARTED JERK aka Wiss!

But I thought I would write about how I think I may have felt that baby kick today. I was feeling around my stomach and I'm pretty sure I felt this little foot sticking out of my stomach, not really sticking out, but I felt it, and it was kinda crazy. I called a few people to see if that's what it was, and I'm pretty sure that it was! I made Tanya (girl in the office) feel it too to make sure I wasn't crazy!

So that's pretty cool. 19 more days until we find out if there's a little penis or not. I will be really suprised if it's a boy, but I won't be if it's a girl because I feel that it is a girl!

Well that's all for now. I'm having a crazy emotional day today.. sooo hope everyone else is wonderful.

I hope I get to meet Owen on Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And maybe freaking Faye will be out by then!

Day 1.

So I wanted to start "blogging" because I thought I would write a journal about being pregnant, but then I realized how much I actually hate writing with a pen and paper. I figured I could write on this "blog" so everyone in the world can hear about my daily life and how boring it really is.. until the day I give birth of course.
So this is my first entry and it's already 10:23 p.m. so I'm going to leave it at that and I will begin to write about my pregnancy experience so not only can I look back on these entries, but that also my mom and mother in law can read how I am feeling since they are far away, and anyone else that cares about me and how I am feeling that I don't see on a regular basis.

I love you.
