To the point where I don't want to renew my subscription, it was up in July.
I can't get Lj - cut to work and it seems with all their "improvements" they have made things more complicated.  Why???  Why do this when Facebook and Google + has made things so simple and user friendly?


Anyway, I am about done with this pkace.


Here's a link explaining some of the "changes" and people's reactions to it.  Apparently I am not the only one who is unhappy.

If you could travel through time with someone you know, who would you choose, and why?

I would choose my daughter because that would be a helluva lot of fun.

My daughter is almost 21 weeks into her pregnancy and I went with her last week to her 20 week ultrasound.  They called it an "Anatomy Scan" and it was so great to see him in 3D.  We actually saw his fingers & toes and a close up of his little face - he was frowning. :)
Her due date is November 9th and I am so excited I can hardly wait!  She got the baby nursery painted (a pale sage green) and I am ordering the crib this Friday & her in- laws are buying the dressers so he'll have a brand new bedroom set.  The crib converts to a toddler bed and then a full size bed for an adult so it's a set he can grow up with.  I will post pictures of the nursery once we get it all decorated.

Here's Daniel at 20 weeks gestation.

BABY!!Collapse )

What do you so strongly believe in that you would march in the streets to support, and why?

 I am VERY Pro- Life but I don't need to march in the streets announcing it, that sounds like a fight waiting to happen.  besides everyone who knows me knows this about me anyway.

I think that's the longest.
Not sure though.


Shortest?
No idea, See Spot Run?  1st grade.

Baby & Stuff

Life is good, still spending a lot of time with my daughter Leanna, usually 5-6 days a week which has been fun.  She's 17 weeks pregnant now and is already showing and feeling baby Daniel kick around.  She's had a lot of ultrasounds due to an earlier pregnancy that failed so I have gotten to see the baby quite a bit.  Her next ultrasound is June 23rd.
This baby is going to be spoiled rotten, he already has a TON of baby stuff and we're not sure he's even going to be able to wear all the clothes people have gotten him.  We were out shopping today when a lady behind us told us that her daughter gave birth to a still born baby boy just 3 weeks ago... her first grandchild.  I got a little panicked and quickly told my daughter how rare that is.  I felt so bad for the lady I wanted to hug her, which is unlike me but it was so sad, she had a bag of baby clothes that she was returning for her daughter.    I lost a baby boy at 5 months so I can relate some, the heartache is like a real life nightmare & I would be devastated if something happened to my baby grandson.  I am so attached already.
I know my daughter worries some but I am glad her doctor is so awesome and checks on Daniel all the time & he is really doing excellent.
My daughter is also doing well, the morning sickness has passed but she gets tired quickly.  Her and I are taking my little nephews (David & Jaxon) to the zoo in a couple weeks and I am hoping she does okay with that.  June 26th is her 21st birthday and I am getting her the infant car seat she wants.  I am a huge advocate for infant/toddler car seat safety and looked up the safest car seat available according to Consumer Reports and am going with the one they listed... it's $250 which threw me for a loop but oh well, at least he'll be safe & it's the one she wanted anyway.
My step dad is home from the hospital now and has a daily hospice nurse who my family has fallen in love with, she's great with him.  Baby Daniel is named after him so we're all hoping he sticks around long enough to meet his little namesake. 
Well, I am off to bed, just wanted to update everyone. :-)
Below is a picture of my daughter and her baby belly.

Have you ever been betrayed by a friend or partner who asked for forgiveness? Were you able to forgive and/or forget? What was the result?

I hold a grudge which is a bad trait of mine.  Anyone who knows me knows I am this way so they try not to screw me over. :-)

Lifetime Movies....

Are usually kind of... bad.  But every now and then I check their website to see if they have a good one and this week they did.

I read the book "The Memory Keepers Daughter" a long time ago and was happy to see that the movie was on Lifetime and was actually pretty good.  It's about a doctor and his pregnant wife who gives birth to twin girls except right after being born the doctor (who ended up delivering his own babies) notices that one twin has something wrong with her, down syndrome I think.  He tells his wife the baby was still born and he instructs a nurse to take the baby to a local mental hospital and to keep her mouth shut.  The nurse ends up taking the baby.  Was a pretty decent book & movie. 
Here's the link if anyone wants to watch www.mylifetime.com/watch-full-movies-online/the-memory-keepers-daughter 

I just looked at the clock... WAY past my bedtime.

 IS A BOY!

I went to my daughter's ultrasound today and usually you can't really tell the gender at 13 weeks gestation but they were clearly able to see "boy parts" so looks like I am getting a grandson!  His name is Daniel, not sure of the middle name yet but it will likely be Jeffrey after her dad or Tyler.
Leanna is 13 weeks gestation and due November 9th.
