My blog is in need of CPR...

It's been so long since I've written that I'm pretty sure my blog has started to collect dust. A quick update since I've last blogged. I had the's now 4 years old and going to pre-school everyday. I lost LOTS of weight after the baby was born and after getting super buff, I now make a living as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Jason is a professional hockey player for the Hurricaines and we all lived happily ever after!

Alright maybe it hasn't been quite THAT long since updating. Honestly, I'm updating because Jason told me I probably should. I don't know what he thinks I do all day. Doesn't he know I'm working hard? First, I wake up and after kicking my way through the mounds of dirty laundry that has overtaken our bedroom, I get on-line and finish a quick 2-3 hour review of blogspot and facebook to make sure I haven't missed anything that's happened in anyone's life over night. Obviously he doesn't understand what a job that is! Then I eat roughly 4 bowls of cereal and move the 40 dirty dishes out of the sink so I can run water down the kitchen sink drain to try and get rid of the smell of curdled milk/ spoiled meat that develops after neglecting the dishes for 4 weeks. Does Jason know realize how much work it is to move all those dirty dishes out of the sink to just move them back in again? Then, I run upstairs to the computer where I spend another 3 hours on facebook reupdating myself on what may have happened while I was eating breakfast. Next, I take a 5 hour nap to rebuild my strength and then wake up in time to call Jason on his way home and tell him I've been too busy to make supper and that he should probably grab something for us on his way as you can see I have hardly had time to update my blog since I've been working around the house so much!

Okay so since I'm here I might as well give you a REAL update. I have NOT had the baby, so you'd better go call back those people you quickly dialed to ask why you hadn't heard the news or received invites to any of the baby's 4 birthday parties! I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and feeling like roughly the size of a Greyhound bus. (I'm also being reminded by friends, coworkers, and family members, that this is, in fact, true...) I had an ultrasound at 30 weeks and at that time they said the baby was already 4lbs. Translation= BIG BABY! Usually babies are closer to 2 lbs at that time. The doctor wants me to have another ultrasound within the next couple of weeks to see how big the baby is now and to decide if I may need to deliver earlier so I don't have a 13 pound toddler!

Here's a self pic of me. My mom had requested one, and since the professional photographer that usually follows me around was in the bathroom, I took one of myself. I find the best way to take pictures is so you're looking down to really accent your double chin. (notice I'm on the phone...probably telling Jason how busy I've been working or placing my take out order!)

Mom, Dad, Jeff and Britta came up for Christmas/ New Years and helped us SO much in getting the baby's room finished. We had so much fun and I think it turned out super cute. Jason just finished staining the dresser and armiore this past weekend and we finally have the room put together!

So, even though I missed blogging a lot of important things these past few months (like my baby shower, pictures of my family up visiting..etc) I have been pretty busy. I'm still feeling great (other than back pain) and I've just been trying to take it easy and enjoy the last bit of my pregnancy. I really DO work (sometimes!)...I'm still working 12 hour nights and in the mean time trying to get everything ready for Sparkle's arrival! I'll try and be more diligent in please be patient with me!!
