A few more thoughts

I think I figured out my growth issue. All my pants and shorts are tight now, but they are all low rise. I believe my lower abdomen is getting bigger when I have been measuring around my belly button. I also read somewhere that I will get water retention around my hips. Baby is also in my lower abdomen right now, so there you go. I dreamt last night that we had the ultra sound and it was a girl. Five more weeks to go!

Week 14 Day 5

I'm not really digging the whole weight to growth ratio. Seems I am steadily gaining weight and my belly isn't growing. I weighed 121.0 this morning and my belly is 33 3/4. My lesson for the week is if you feel like you gotta poo, do it right away or else it's gonna hurt! Constipation sucks.
I bought my first round of pregnancy clothes this week. I can still fit in my clothes but I do a lot of sitting at work and my jeans are just killing me. I got a dress and a few pairs of stretchy capris with cute preggo tops. They'll look cuter once I grow into them.

As Promised...

We're driving down the Kam on our way to Ala Moana Mall and this is the treat we get. This was worth the U turn to drive back around for pictures don't you think??? BTW in case it's hard to tell...yes that's tin foil baby.

Week 13 Day 5

I am squeezing this blog in last minute, it's 10pm and I have been busy all day. Jeremy and Shannan came in on Thursday and we have them until next Thursday. We are having alot of fun!
So of course I forgot to weigh in and and measure before I ate this morning. I measured 33 1/3 and 121.4 pounds after a fat stack of hot cakes, coffee and water. Oh well. Nothing much has changed except I am noticing that I am not peeing as much as I used to. I usually awake at 3am to release myself but I haven't in like a week now.
Were having our dinner tomorrow (Christmas Eve) so I have been making stuff to prepare. I just got done making pumpkin bread, and it is soooo good!
I have to get ready for bed now, I am about to pass out.
Oh and BTW, when I get time to get back on here again, I have a real treat for you. We saw the funniest thing I have ever seen in Hawaii today. So funny, we in fact made a u turn just to drive past again to take pics. I will show you soon. Stay tuned.

House progress

The front entryway



Guest "Amanda's" room

Nursery, lol.

And of course...the ham gets her picture taken too.

Week 12 Day 5

Ok so I may be pushing it out some but this is how I feel! Weighed in at 119.0, 33 3/4 waist. What was I last week? I really should check before I start blogging. Appetite is still great, boobs are still good, gas is under control. Good times. Speaking of gas i just remember I got to go get some. Propane that is.

My third appointment

Today I liked my appointment. I got to talk to someone finally, and a really nice person at that. Her name was Dana, and she was one of the six midwives offered at the hospital. I liked her alot, it was like getting felt up by your mom instead of a doctor. I chatted with her about concerns and asked her all kinds of questions. She then gave me a boob and uteral exam I guess you could call it. She felt me up in other words. I also got a long overdue pap done. Then we listened to the baby's heartbeat. At first we kept picking up mine, and then there was baby's. It's very different. Unfortunetly I had Chris wait for me in the waiting room, but it would have been nice for him to be there too. Next time I'll have him come and he can take a pic of me sprawled out on the table in my kick butt robe.
Later at 3 we then attended a prenatal class. I learned about nutrition and how to deal with the typical symptoms, which don't really apply to me. The nurse was informative and friendly in nature. I liked her too.
I am sooo tired, and I have to get up early. Goodnight!

A Rant

Hey Lady...ya YOU...the one that posted your table for sale on Craigslist and I can never seem to get a hold of you. Last time I checked, you post an ad to sell your stuff. I know you still have it, your husband is nice enough to take messages for you. You're never home, and you never answer your emails. I would just give up but I'm not going down that easy. Give me an answer and I'll leave you alone. I really do want it dangit.

RIP Jaws

Well this isn't really him, but thanks to Amanda's research she found one that looked like him. This fish almost died about 10 times and I always brought him back. He was a good pal. He danced around every morning when I'd come to feed him. Sometimes I'd lean over the counter and have chats with him. He was a good listener. That will guy was tough as nails, he suffered for about a month before he finally let go today. He was so weak I had to put him in a shallow bowl just low enough for him to barely poke his head up to breathe. He was old. It was his time. RIP little buddy.

11 weeks 5 days

So now that I know what I am I can properly log my weeks. Tuesdays mark the beginning of the week, seeing as that was the day of the ultrasound.
Anyhow, weighed 118.6 today with no belly growth again. 33 1/2. (Now I gotta look back at my other posts, I think that's the usual measurement?! Right?)
My appetite is wishy washy. I can eat anything one day and struggle to find something the next. Now I know where the weight gain kicks in. I have to keep food in me belly at all times to feel good. My boobs are barely sore anymore, although for awhile they were very itchy and now they are peeling! Sorry if that's too much info, but I'm blogging my progress here folks, so you got to deal.
I guess that's about all this week. Not too much else to report.
Oh I finally got everyone's presents packaged and ready to ship for tomorrow. What a pain! Now I still got to work on my cards, as well as my company cards. That's tomorrow's task. Wow I am really sending them out late this year! Sorry guys, I'm so behind.
Goodnight, I'm going to get some ice cream now. :) mmmmmmmmm..... chocolate brownie

IT"S OFFICIAL!!!!! (drumroll please...)

I am 11 weeks pregnant! Unfortunetly, we still have nine more weeks until we know the sex. You have to be 20 weeks for that. Here's our little one!

Here's me taking it all in

Let me tell you. I had no idea what I was in for today. We thought we might see a little something, no biggie. Maybe even hear a heartbeat. Well...the instant I laid on the table the lady poo'd a nice big blob of "warm" lube on my belly and placed the instrument on me. It tickled...a lot. Wow to my surprise...instant baby! It was even clearer on the monitor than what you see in pictures. It's amazing! Chris and I just stared at the monitor in awe with our jaws to the floor. We saw the heartbeat, legs, arms and body squirming and rolling all over. A few times, the baby rolled it's back to us and I could see the vertebrae! It is one of the most indescribable feelings in the world. The nurse told us everything looked great, and the heartbeat is strong and fast (it's supposed to be). We couldn't be happier! Oh, and we're due June 24th!

As an added bonus, here's what I did while sitting in the waiting room. I found this pamphlet amusing. Enjoy!

Sunday, December 2, 2007

Week Five

Strangely, my belly shrank. But I have a feeling it was all gas. I don't really feel as bloated as I usually do. I weighed in at 117.6 with a 32 3/4" waist. I feel great! Minimal gas, good appetite, and my senses aren't as sensitive! I like this. We're having a busy Sunday. We decided to hang the Christmas lights and finish fixing the yard that has been put off for far too long. Then we're going Christmas shopping. I think Christmas is going to hurt this year. I still have to do my dang cards. I'm so behind! I have been busy making company Chrismas cards and gift baskets. That's okay, I'm done with that now, so starting tomorrow I am going to make MY Christmas cards at work. Heh. Waste their ink and not mine! Yay!
Alright, I gotta go help Chris.
Ultrasound...two days!

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

My first Appointment

Well...we didn't get the answers we wanted today, but oh well. Today was registration, paperwork, and appt. scheduling. They also took 4 vials of blood and a pee test. However, because we couldn't determine how far I am, we got the lady to approve us for an early ultrasound! It's next Tuesday at 1. Hope we get some answers. Overall, it went well. I learned I will be spending most of my life at the hospital with appointments galore. I HATE doctors, but I guess this is going to fix that. I also HATE getting my blood taken because I have very deep veins you see. Every time means numorous stabs and torment. I met Pearl, a little old Filipino lady that has been doing this since before I was born. She was patient and got it on the first go. She took care of me. I hugged her and told her to please be here always. I have many more blood drawings to go...

Tuesday, November 27, 2007


Today we lost a dear member of the family. After 94 years, Mabel Walkins decided she had enough. We are sad for her loss but happy she can now be free of her sufferings. She was a spunky little lady with a big heart. We will miss her stories and wit. Enjoy eternal coffee in Heaven Grandma!

Sunday, November 25, 2007

If you start to notice Chris going cross eyed, now you know why.

No more flashing the neighbors!

We got our blinds we ordered...finally! Chris put the ones in our bedroom up today. It's going to be so nice not to have to hide in my own bedroom anymore! I took some pictures of Chris in action, but I think he's got it all wrong.

Week Four

I'm going backwards. Today I weighed 117.4 with the same 33 1/2 waist.
My appetite is the same, although I want nothing to do with BBQ sauce and avocado. Smells are not bothering me so much anymore. My boobs still hurt and I still produce enough gas to fuel a city. I'm eating a bowl of Ohs and they are delish....
Well that's about all folks.

Sunday, November 18, 2007

Week Three

Again I forgot to weigh in when I first woke up. I was so hungry when I woke up I literally got out of bed, peed, and ran downstairs for a delightful bowl of Ohs. hmmmm...I love them.
So I am weighing myself at 2 in the afternoon after eating about 4 times already. 118.4. And my belly is 33 1/2. Hey, isn't that the same as last week? Maybe I had some slight growth. No pic needed!

The cutest ugliest car ever!

Chris sold his Harley and replaced it with this winner for 700 bones. It runs, and that's all it needs to do. I like it. Now he won't get soaked 4/5 days a week going to work. And he's safer...I think.

Saturday, November 17, 2007

Alright, Alright

By popular demand, I am going to enable commenting.
Post away! I better not get any weirdos.

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Smells that are bugging me

1. Coffee
2. Coffee grinds in the trash
3. Trash can in general
4. The cleaner I use in the kitchen. It smells like pee.
5. The kitchen sink's natural smell.

Maybe I should stay out of the kitchen.

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

It's back!

My appetite that is. Meals are sounding good again. For a little while there cereal and english muffins were the only foods on my non appauling list. Heh...sushi the past!

Sunday, November 11, 2007

Week Two. Baby or Gas?

Today I forgot to weigh in before eating and all that. I weighed 118, and Chris measured my belly today. He got 33 1/4. Hmmm....
I feel like I am getting bigger. I really wonder how far along I am?
My boobs still hurt. And I am so bloated! I am noticing changes in my appetite too. Nothing sounds good, especially anything salty. Only junk food sounds good and it is making me mad! I am trying really hard to eat well and exercise and this baby wants chocolate milk and cake. grrr....

Sunday, November 4, 2007

New ritual

Starting today, I am going to start blogging my growth every Sunday. Yeah!
This morning I weighed 115.8 and my waist measurement (around the bellybutton) was 32". I don't really know what I was originally, but I used to weigh around 114 and my mid section was about an inch less. I need to be careful because I am already beginning to justify endulgences I normally wouldn't just because I am pregnant. When I wear my shorts my gut cuts off and hangs over. Nice. No pics for now.

My husband is so cute

He is so protective of me since I became pregnant. Looks like I get out of cleaning bathrooms! He doesn't want me breathing in all the chemicals. Works for me! So I had me that sore throat, and he wanted me to go to the doctor. He thought I had some dry throat from being pregnant. lol. I said baby, people get colds, even when they are pregnant. Silly.
I am also very excited to be able to go to the bathroom in peace again. I have to pee about every half hour, and each time I am tormented by this giant daddy long leg in the hallway on the way to my relief hole. Yesterday he was high on the wall but still close enough to gimme the heebie jeebies. Today the little bastard decided to mosey on down to torcher me at eye level. And he won't go away!!! I couldn't take it anymore and told my boss. He took care of him. whewww....

Thursday, November 1, 2007

My throat hurts

and I don't like it. Please oh please just let it be a cold thing. I don't know how the whole taking antibotics and being pregnant thing works.

Monday, October 29, 2007

Man what I woudn't give....

For some superman rolls and a drinky poo. You know the night before I found out I was pregnant I stocked up on liquor and wine. Now I just get to stare at it. Bummer!


So if you know already know that!
It all began last Tuesday, Oct. 23rd. I randomly decided to bring a pregnancy test to work with me (this thing was one year expired!) I had been feeling premenstrual symptoms for far too long, and I was growing suspicious. I peed in a cup, submerged the stick in it and waited. I had no instructions so I wasn't even sure if I would know what the result meant. Oh well...proceed.
I stare at it. I'm seeing a solid vertical line...faint horizontal. A faint "plus" could be negative, right? the trash it goes. I couldn't be anyways. Not after all these years. Plus this thing is old as dirt.
After an hour it starts to eat at me. Could I have read it wrong? I quickly look up the readings for ept on their website. OMG. A solid vertical is positive, and solid horizontal is negative. Whoa. I hall ass to the mini mart and quickly snatch up another test...and some TUMS. lol. Same result. Wow. First things first. Go back to the bathroom and reclaim my test from the trash. Next...take pictures of it. Sis is the first person I call. I didn't want to say too much just in case I was wrong. Ya right. By the end of the day everybody new.
It took me about 3-4 days to recoup. I was a walking daydream. All I could do was analyze my new life from labor to how am I going to work? Do I take the baby on the ferry with me?? HA>
Then I decided to slow down and take it one day at a time. Today I will worry about going to the hospital and getting settled in. Not what will I do when "she" gets a cough. This is all so surreal...

Thursday, October 18, 2007


I have eaten Superman rolls from Ninja Sushi about 5 times in the past week. I just finished shoveling another round of them into my face about 2 hours ago and I am craving them again. I swear there is crack laced in those suckers. Let me just tell you whats in them. Savory Ahi wrapped with seaweed and rice. Layed on top is a nice sliver of Ahi, a strip of a sweet/spicy teriyaki glaze and topped with little crunchy dried onions. My mouth is watering.

Entertaining site

Anyone notice how awful Jenna Jameson looks these days? She lost a bunch of weight and it all went to her lips (HA HA, clever...I know). Enjoy.

Another random thought

Why do furniture catalogs feature big ads of people laying on the ground next to the bed, or a guy sitting on the ground using his laptop next to a really cool chair. Doesn't that defeat the purpose??? Hey dumbass, buy our really cool expensive furniture that you don't need nor will you ever use. That's what I think they're trying to say.

Monday, October 8, 2007

Three things wrong with today...

1. It's a holiday and I am at work.

2. Not only am I at work and don't want to be here, but the AC is not working too.

3. Because it's a holiday and I am at work, and no one else is working, I have to play chauffeur to 6 people that can't pick up their base passes.

On the plus side: I was given my $950 check owed to me.

Time to trade it in

I couldn't believe what I see today, so naturally I had to take a picture. I was running some errands when next to me in the parking lot I am amazed to see an almost fully wrecked car still being driven around. The side windows are gone, hood and head light smashed and smooshed in. Both air bags were deployed and the windshield had a huge perfectly round head crack on the passanger side. Not even a crack, more like smashed and ready to cave in. Too bad the picture doesn't show how bad it really was. Whose ever head hit that is probably not very happy...or breathing.

Wednesday, October 3, 2007

On the memories'll like this one sis :)

"I love that song Heaven by Bryan Adams" says Michelle.
"Oh me too!" I reply (the copycat little sister)
"You don't even know it."
"Yes I do! Heaven...Heaven....Heaven Heaven Heaven."

hee hee.


How far back can you remember? I can go pretty far back, like before preschool (4-5ish?), but sometimes it's the weird random stuff that gets me. Like I remember a time the whole family was riding in the car and we came to a light. "What does that mean Mom?" I ask. She explains it to me, then I remember passing a 7-11 and thinking, wow, that's cool. I am 7 and my sister is 11. How fitting!
Why do I remember that??? And why at 7 did I not know what a traffic light did???

Friday, September 28, 2007

Wow it works!

My note to self worked! I sat down to indulge in yet another empty internet surfing session until I read my post. I got up and started cleaning!

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Note to self

What are you doing on here??? Get off your ass and put your house together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My tip for the day

If you like Cocoa Pebbles like me, buy the generic bag of it. It tastes the same and you get more. And more is good.

So here is what happened to my Lucy

We're thinking she may have chewed up a thumbtack and swallowed the metal sliver. The doctor said it was a thin piece of metal about a centimeter long and as thick as a paperclip. That ruled out a nail. She swallowed it and sometime later, it poked through the stomach and lodged in fat inside her abdomen. After she wouldn't quit getting sick I took her in and the xray confirmed it. $2000 later I got to take my pup home. This all went down in the beginning of the month. Times like this you really wish you had pet insurance. But does it really work? If it did wouldn't most people have it? I'm still skeptical.
To make it worse, we just got her fixed, so she now has one mean scar rolling down her belly. Dang Dog. She's lucky I like her.

Getting back on track

Yes it has been a while since I have posted anything, I know. I was a little stressed about my dog (I'll make a separate post about that) and dealing with new bills and the mortgage. We still haven't paid a full normal month of those goodies yet so the unexpected is killing me!
Anyhow, I had a good morning. My new buddy I catch the ferry with everyday to work informed me there is a gym on Ford Island. I was so excited! I sit on my ass all day here and was getting worried about not getting any exercise. Plus I snack all day long. So I brought my gear over and used the facility today. I only did 30 minutes on the ellptical, but it was something. As long as I get my heart rate up for 30 mins a day I'm happy.

Reaquainting (Is that a word?)

So today was my buddy Nate's B-day bash. I had a real good time chatting with old friends that I used to work with. I miss them! I miss having people to talk to at work. At least I got email! I bug them all the time at work.

My tip for the day

Want to lose weight? There is an ancient secret only few know about. I am going to share it with you. Are you ready???
Eat right and exercise.

The end.

P.S. Quit wasting your money on pills.

Stupid blog

For some reason I can't edit my posts, so here's a pic of the grass. I am also hotter than a mo fo because my AC decided to take a dump last night. Why does this crap happen on weekends when no one is working to come fix it???

Thursday, August 23, 2007

It's here!

We saw our first peak of little burmuda grass sprouts poking out yesterday! We did it! And there was a significant growth spurt since last night. I can't take any credit because Chris did it all. I dug one hole. But we were worried that it wouldn't work because...well...we have no idea what we were doing! Remind myself to take some pictures.

Monday, August 20, 2007

My tip for the day

NEVER buy from a dealership. Don't allow them to sucker you into it, fight the urge! NO compulsive shopping! Convienet:yes. Worth it:no. You will spend a lot more than you need to. ALWAYS buy a year old or so from a private party. Wait for that person who got suckered a year to realize he made a mistake and buy it from him for a lot less with no tax. Believe me, he will be desperate to get rid of those $600 payments.

Look at my "interesting reads"

Seriously...the anorexic page. I couldn't stop reading it for days. My husband started getting worried.

New House

So we are all moved into our new place. I am at work so I have no pics to post. It is coming along nicely! The kitchen and living room is almost completely done and the upstairs almost functional. Chris laid grass a few days ago so we are anticipating new growth! I am still waiting for my $150 f'in doggie door. WTF? I ordered it on Tuesday and paid for express shipping. It only took those mo fos 4 days to send it out. What biznatches.

Sunday, August 5, 2007

My tip for the day

Ever try to get rid of those unsightly warts with wart remover? They suck! Well...I have had quite a few on my hands during my time. In high school when bored I would douse the little buggers with my bath and body works hand sanitizer that I carried in my purse (original purpose was to mask cigarette smell). The stuff ate it away, and never came back! It literally broke down the mound until it exposed the black vein feeding it. I assume any brand will work.

Saturday, August 4, 2007

All better

Thank God she doesn't look like this anymore! Lucy is doing fantastic and back to her old spoiled annoying self. Only after 2 days! Amazing considering that first day was horrible.

Thursday, August 2, 2007

My poor puppy

My baby Lucy is getting fixed today. I hope she is ok. At least I won't have to call her dribbles no more.

Wednesday, August 1, 2007

Bye Bye my friends

I'm a little sad tonight. We sold our aquarium. No more feeding happy little Nemo in the mornings. No more feeding nasty slimy squid pieces to Eeyore. No more yelling at lepo for killing the other fish. Ahhhh. I bet 200 bucks is going to cheer me up though.

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

My tip for the day

Got house ants? Buy Terro liquid ant killer (not baits, it's a liquid bottle like hand sanitizer). My sis told me about it a long time ago, and I found myself needing it for my office. It's only a few bucks too! Yay! I just laid it down about 10 minutes ago and they are going crazy for it. They bring it back to the nest.It's like they can smell it a mile away. I do however feel kinda bad, they're only doing their job, and I just F'd them. Oh well, sorry guys.

Circle of life

Today my sister's sparrow died, and my ugly fish died. He's still dead in the tank, and I'm not touching it. What gives?

A random thought

Mesothelioma. The first time I saw a commerical for this I thought "How the heck do you say that?" It took me forever. I didn't even know what it was. I still don't. I Learned by chanting it in my head to the tune of...oh I forget what it's called. You know that dance where you create a chain of people and catapillar around a room sticking your leg out in unison. Mes-O-The-Li-O-MA! Ha ha. I am a dork.

My tip for the day

If you ever need to send money to family and don't want to pay for the Western Union or bank wire fees, never fear. Sign up for a free Paypal account at Money transfers to bank accounts are ALWAYS free. Add your bank account as well as the person you want to send money to's bank account. Tadaaa...

Oh, first you gotta transfer money from your bank account into paypal (free). Once it posts, then you can transfer it to the other account (free). The money must come from paypal, not account to account.

Note Buyers

Are you a money collector? I sell radar and repeater notes on ebay. Here are my auctions. Seems funny to those of you that don't know anything about money collecting. I'm fairly new at it myself, but there is such thing as note buying.

Auction 1

Auction 2

These are just a few. I have a lot more. The idea is to aquire uncirculated notes with particular series of serial numbers, different combos are worth more than others. What I have here are just common.


So yesterday we were invited to hike Diamondhead with some friends here on vacation. Now I have lived here for almost 3 years and have never gone. Why? Because I didn't feel it would be worth the time. And really, I was kind of right. A little disappointing. Hike a pretty hefty incline with a gazzilion stairs for a little scenery. Maybe I just was disappointed because I live here and have seen it all. There is nothing to do at the top but snap photography. Whoopie! Now....back down.
So if you are in semi good shape, and want something free to all means. I'll stick to the mall. Here are some snaps.

My Fav Five

Cheryl's top 5 bored websites (more to come):

1. Ebaums-the games are great

2. Nuff said.

3. Craigslist (bartering rocks!)

4. Find dead people on myspace

5. Make money creating domain names

Hello World!

Yep. That's me.
Hell0 (or aloha) from Hawaii. I love living here!
I am 27 years old, and have been happily married for 8 years.
Life is good.
I'm starting this blog because I have absolutely nothing to do during my 8 hours of so called work Monday thru Friday. I figured I might do something that will entertain me. I really don't know what I can blog. Maybe what I do everyday? Perhaps start a daily journal? Who knows. I live on myspace most of the time, so I figured it was time to try something new.
That's all for now. What a fantastic intro.
