Subject:Day In, Day Out
Time:10:23 pm.
Mood: thirsty.
Amazing how the time just goes by. Wednesday is done and tomorrow is Thursday - one day closer to the weekend. One day closer to having my honey home. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas. Now we are preparing for Easter. Went to church this evening to get my ashes.

It rained a little today but it was while I was at work. I came home from church and I was able to watch the mole. Pretty good show. I didn't figure out who it is. I missed a couple of shows too so I really did not have all the "data" to make a decision.

I am heading to bed for another night of sleep...yeah!!! I can't imagine waking up every 2 hours to feed the baby - I am going to be tired!!! SO I better enjoy the sleep I do get.

Subject:Rain, Rain, and more Rain
Time:10:34 pm.
What the hell is going on?!!? Is there some big f- cloud right over California for the rest of our natural lives. I love the rain but I really cannot take it anymore. It doesn't help that when it rains our satellite dish goes out and I am not able to watch any TV?!? Which drives me batty on nights like the Mole and NYPD Blue!?!? I heard today at work that we have surpassed Seattle in rainfall this year so far.....ugh

Had an all day meeting scheduled with the client today and it only went until 1:30 - woohoo. Then I had dropped the car off at the dealer for the 80,000 miles check up and turns out the front brakes need to be repaired. So we bite the bullet and have them replaced. I go to pick it up and it was an insane amount of money - and the sad part is that the parts were 1/4 the total price. Most of the cost was the stupid labor. It is a lease so we like to have everything done by the dealer so they have record of it being brought in.

Talked with my mom for almost an hour since TV was out. It is so weird how much more you appreciate your mom when you are about to become one yourself. And with a little sister only 3 years old (meaning mom just went through pregnancy again) it is nice to have someone to compare notes with.

5 weeks from tomorrow is my due date. Insane. We have Lamaze this weekend. Mom asked me if I was nervous and I don't think I am. I am not saying I am wonder woman but I just hope that I can tolerate what this is going to do to me - I know it is going to hurt but I am hoping that I will be so excited for what comes that I can focus on that rather than the pain. Plus I hope my partner in the room (Matthew) is able to support me in my agony and tries not to boss me around or tries to tell me what to do.....because I will have some choice words for him....but then again he always has the argument - "You were the one who got us into this." Sweet, isn't it.

Subject:Great Job!!! Not.....
Time:6:18 pm.
So I was cruising through our projects database at work. And I was looking to change screens but using the tool bar (which I do every day without a problem.) And instead of hitting the correct panel option I hit the scissors button - you now, cut command. Well all of a sudden the computer starts to crank and make noises like it is doing something and one section is completely removed from the database. Not any section the BATCH section - this is the section where the coders go in and document what they have done for the project.

So I freak out. And I run over to one of our systems people. And she starts to resave everything through. She minimizes one of the sections which automatically refreshes the database - guess what - the section is there but only with the items she had save so far. So there is way more info missing.

I tried pasting back in the section (from my clipboard) but all it pasted back in the was the section title. UGH!!! I was so annoyed. Why didn't it prompt me or something. I feel so stupid. So I sent a note to IS to see what they can do for us. I am such a moron.

That's what I get for trying to be productive. I was in the middle of verify someone was doing their job and instead jeopardized my own. I need to go home. I can't believe I did that?!?!??

Time:10:24 pm.
Mood: excited.
It still amazes me all the wonders about pregnancy. I am amazed at the size of my belly. The movement that comes from within it. I miss the movement if it isn't there. Two pregnant people I have been pregnant with have given birth in the last couple of days. It only means one thing - my time is coming. Crazy!!

I almost fell down the stairs this morning in our house. It was quite scary - my knee still hurts but it made me think about how I do not have a bag packed just in case something happens to me. So I will probably do that this weekend.

I have been getting more and more cramps - or small contractions which I think is normal. I will be checking in with the doctor on Monday so I will find out. I am getting anxious to meet this little person and to take care of it. I know it is going to be an amazing moment in my life and I cannot wait.

Subject:Goodnight Moon
Time:9:50 pm.
Mood: tired.
I am ready for bed - I was collapsing watching the mole tonight at 8pm. It was so bad. I was head bobbing and everything.

I have to get up early tomorrow for an appointment in Santa Ana at 8am. One that I look forward to but dread in the morning since it is so early.

I have called my husband twice tonight on his cell phone and received no answer. I guess New Orleans is pretty loud so he cannot hear the phone ringing. Good thing I haven't gone into labor. Wouldn't that suck.

I am heading to bed for some very deserved shut eye.

Subject:Long Day
Time:4:50 pm.
Ugh, these days keep getting longer and longer for me. I can feel my eyes drooping I am so tired. I am on the go the entire time I am in the office.

I got here at 8 since I had a 9 o'clock meeting and I needed to sit and talk to someone before that meeting. I never had to confront someone about their performance before. Usually they quit before I have to do it. But today I had to do it and in front of their manager (so that they could be aware of what is going on.)

I was very proud of myself - I think it was because I really did not think about it. I kind of went with the flow and just discussed my disappointment and how I know they have potential - blah, blah, blah. I was complimented on by the manager for handling it very well.

Then it was more of sitting with people and coaching them on things. Meeting to meeting. Question to question. I try to catch a moment of peace in the bathroom.

Even while writing this journal - I am stopped a million times. But it is my job. I enjoy it but it is taking a toll on me and this pregnancy. I am very tired.

Subject:Illegal Download? (Really from yesterday)
Time:4:43 pm.
I just installed this software to my computer at work so we will see if I hear from my company's IS department if I have done something illegal.

Mom, Migdalia and Marianna are on their way to Chicago - they have an hour before they land. Ray is picking them up at the airport. My dad was up until 5:30 this morning. He ripped out all the tile from the upstairs bathroom (he took out the toilet bowl and everything) and then he proceeded to rip out the carpet off the stairs. He wanted to surprise mom. Hopefully it was a good surprise. Crazy kid.

Work is demanding. A little part of me wishes I get sent home by the doctor - just so I do not have to deal with the stress. But part of me knows I would feel this "weak" thing about having to go to bed rest in my pregnancy. But I haven't known too many pregnant women to work the full 9 months at 50-55 hours a week.

I better get back to work. Soo long for now.

Subject:Hate Sundays
Time:8:38 pm.
Mood: content.
Actually this Sunday was really nice. We got up kind of slow and heading out about noon. Only bad thing was Matthew had to catch a mid-afternoon flight. So we had to leave him behind. We went to downtown Disney and nothing real exciting. It is like an outdoor mall with stores and restaurants but it is in the middle of all the parks. Then we went on the Balboa island car ferry - so cool!! We crossed over to the island and walked around. Looked at the beach and all the pretty houses. Ahhh, one day.

Then we went to TGI Fridays for dinner because my sister likes that crap. And it is so crap - so I made her pay for all of us. $45.00 for dinner at a dump. Food was luke warm and service was crappy.

Well, Marianna is going down for the night so I need to shut off. Hopefully Matthew will check in and see my intimate thoughts. love you and miss you

Subject:A quick one
Time:10:34 am.
It's Saturday morning and we are all up now. We have been for a while. We had breakfast and I washed all the dishes. My baby shower is today and I feel strange. It is all my work friends and I do not feel worthy of being bought presents from people I have only known for a year and a half. But I am eternally grateful to these friends for wanting to come and buy the baby something.

I feel off today. Don't know why. I think it is because my hair didn't dry right. Matthew thinks I am weird - I don't argue with him on things like that.

I am starting to feel the horror of everyone leaving me in a few days. Matthew leaves for New Orleans tomorrow and mom and the gang leave Monday morning. And then I am on my own. Sucks.

Well, I am going to hang out with the family.

Subject:My first entry
Time:5:16 pm.
Mood: geeky.
Well, this is my first live journal. Don't know how much I will be writing since I am about 8.5 months pregnant and work a full time job. My husband is the famous matty from matty13.com. I am very proud of him. He thinks I am a jerk but he has no idea how cool I think he is for learning all this stuff on his own and doing it all himself. That's all for now - I have guests from out of town.
