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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Wednesday, October 22, 2008


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.

Saturday, October 18, 2008


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!

Tuesday, October 14, 2008


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.
