15 Weeks Tomorrow!

Well this is what I look like now - I am actually the size of a pear! See my weekly name below!
We had another Dr appointment today - and I am glad that is was today - I had some spotting over the Christmas week and was a little worried - but all is great! - The Dr did a physical exam and said my cervix is long and very tight - my reply: "is that good?" She said yes it was very good. I got to hear the heart beat - oh my what a wonderful sound - it was very loud and strong - it was amazing - On my week 15 update it does not compare us to a fruit or object - it says that at 15 weeks we are: around 4 inches long, crown to rump, your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 ounces.- so I will make up my own name this week - ha ha Last week we were a large lemon and our name was Le'mone so I am going to go with Perry for the size of a pear! I love it - I love that I have not been sick - but at the same time that is scary! I know I know I am lucky! Love you all and please continue to keep us in your prayers!

Sympathy Symptoms

Well everyone keeps telling me that while you are pregnant you start getting forgetful and clumsy - well I know the clumsy is from the nausea and so on - I know that the forgetfulness is from the tiredness but could someone PLEASE tell me what is causing my husband to have Sympathy Symptoms - you see tonight was his work Christmas party and I called him after being at work late to tell him I would meet him at the restaurant and he said okay I am on my way out and I will meet you there ... Just like planned - Anyway I left the party before he did walked in the house to smell and see smoke - I started looking around for what ever in the world was on fire - well come to find out it was the TEA that my husband left on the stove top to cook - yes on HIGH ... It was horrible anyway so I have officially passed on the FORGETFUL SYMPTOM to my husband and he has gratefully accepted the SYMPATHY portion of his job!

Carolina Beats Clemson

Well well us Carolina Fans for years have said "wait till next year" and guess what this was our year ... Today we did it - we put those Orange Obnoxious Clemson Fans into their place Homeboy missed a field goal that could have tied the game and Put us in overtime! Maybe he sees Garnet and black too! Silly people - they (Clemson) have been bragging all year that they are so damn good and we are so BAD - well then how in the hell did you get beat by a team that is so damn bad - maybe now they will realize that they are in the easiest conference in College football?! maybe now they will realize that we played 3 of the top 10 schools this year and even if we lost not one of them was a blow out - so eat my ass all of you Tigers the Cocks just broke into you Zoo and the coop is on the loose!

My Gosh - I am ill today!
I went to the Dr today for my first Ultrasound that was supposed to happen at noon - I was early and ready! So excited to see that little heart working here is how it went:

Andy and I both left work early with all intentions to have our first baby picture I get there, check in, and I think this is about how the conversation went:
Receptionist: "oh we called you this am, the ultra tech is out today, she is really sick. I am sorry we will have to reschedule."

Me: "What number did you call?"

Receptionist: "oh we called 650-8969 around 8:30"

Me: "My husband and I both leave for work around 6:15 am could you please change that to call my cell phone, we both took off work today to be here"

Receptionist: "I guess I can make a note of that, but we prefer to call your house"

Me: "Well you see how much good that did me! Do you have my test results, from last week?"

Receptionist: "Well I am sure if there was something wrong they would call you!"

Me: "You mean like you called me today?"

Frustrated and red in the face I stormed out !
Exactly what class do they take in school to think that a person will be happy with any of those answers?! How inconsiderate can a HUMAN be to think that someone who took 8 almost 9 months to get pregnant and took off work to come see their baby for the very first time to not understand why I was frustrated - she acted as if I should have been happy the tech was sick?!
Anyway I don't want to complain or whine so much that I ruin the fun of the Blog but I hope to have a picture next Monday at 10:40!

Monday, November 13, 2006


OMG could today be ANY SLOWER - and you know what I am not even sure why it is so freakin' slow?!
Why is that one day you can't have enough hours in the day and the next day you are wondering where all of the hours come from?! I am guessing today is SO SLOW because tomorrow is a BIG day! Our first Ultrasound - I am not sure what you can actually see at week 9 (well actually 8-3/4) but I hope to see something that will make me relax because this is killing me! I know some of you will stone me because of this but I almost wish I were a little sick so I would feel better --- I know the Dr said that my sore boobs and my tiredness were great signs I just can't believe it - I have always been a sickly person so I figured this would be horrible - and now that it isn't it is driving me nutz! Oh well I will quit complaining now but if any of you figure out why one day is so slow and boring and how I can make it go fast PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

PS Thanks for all of the Congrats on the last entry!

A lot to say this time!

The second week of September I called and made an appointment with our doctor for the month of December for consultation and fertility options for the month of December. December would have been our 10 month of trying to conceive by ourselves. I think with knowing we would get help and knowing that in less than 3 weeks I would be in Jamaica actually helped my relax Because guess what - are you guessing - well have you guessed yet -
Here is the story of how we found out and our first appointment -
Andy and I returned from our vacation on October 15th it was a Sunday and my Aunt Flow was 2 days late. I did not feel any different than usual and I actually was having slight cramps so I kept thinking she was knocking on that door when we got home I remembered that I didn't have any pregnancy tests (this was actually the first month that I wasn't testing 5 days before her visit) I had to wait until Monday. We had both already planned to go to work late on Monday (I thought I would die) Monday am I went to the store and bought a 2 pack of test I went to work and had to sit and wait all day! When I got home and Andy got home we took the test and started to get ready for dinner as I kept checking the test I started to see a very light pink line and a bright pink line. Andy was like well maybe I said no not maybe honey that line has never been there and I had taken several in the past 8 months! He was like really are you sure I said yeah. Of course I took another test in the am ha ha! Well I called the Dr the next day and said you know that appointment I had scheduled for December for fertility options - I said we can cancel it and I need to schedule a prenatal visit that is when it hit me --- I cried then! One the way home from work on Wednesday I bought a pack of the digital test and sure enough I took one and it said the actual words Pregnant holly cow we did it!
At first we were not going to tell ANYONE but I was so anxious and nervous that I wasn't sleeping so we decided we would tell my mom and dad on Sunday and Andy's parents and brother on that following Monday. We gave the grandparents to be books about 101 ways to spoil your grand kids, and so you're expecting to be a grandparent - it was really neat! On Sunday when my parents said Congratulations to Andy is the first time I think he really accepted it - it was awesome!
On November 7th we had our first Dr appointment it was okay a lot of test and a lot of blood taking - I thought I would need a transfusion! Ha ha The Dr walked into the room and said well it is positive we are going to have a baby! I said that makes 7 she looked confused and said 7 kids?! I said no 7 positives she was like what?! I giggled Andy giggled and then all the questions started I told her I was nervous because I had not been sick she said every pregnancy was different and that everything looked just fine. I think she figured out how anxious and nervous I was so she scheduled an internal ultrasound for next Tuesday at noon! I am so excited!
That is where we are today our appointment for next Tuesday is at noon and don't worry I will keep all of you posted!

Not much to say

Well - it is officially Fall - How do I know that well you see in Myrlte Beach we very rarely have season changes - but this year I have seen a couple red leaves and some brown leaves. The grass is changing colors and the lawn guy is only coming every other week.
We are leaving on Thursday to go to the Mountains of GA for a long weekend with friends! I am sure I will have great pictures when we return -
Other than that now news to report!

Paradise AKA Jamaica

Hey Mon
Hope this blog finds you all well and as rested as I was when we returned from Jamaica - that feeling has since passed - due to being behind 2 weeks at work - but it was the best feeling in the world when we first returned!

What a looser

Yep that is me - I am a big fat looser - I was all into this blog thing and then poof I get talked into myspace and now I am a junkie over there and I totally neglect this. Why can't I seem to get it all together and keep it all together ... oh well I guess I can't do it all! Well we are home from Jamaica and it was a g=freaking blast - lots of sun, sand and fun! Stay tuned for pictures and fun!

3rd Annual BuzzFest

While the BuzzFest didn't quite have the numbers I would have liked it well passed that with fun! This past labor day was just AMAZING! I had a blast. Friday night Naj got into the beach around 8:30 we talked like 2 high school girls playing catch up. Then Kim and Brandon arrived late 10ish. We had some drinks and hit the back porch to chill out and chat. Saturday morning my great hubby fixed us all breakfast ... Yes it was off the hook! Then we packed the car up and headed to the beach, we ran into my parents and hung out all day. Baggo, Bocchie, Beer and friends - How could ask for more?! It was an awesome day ... Not to much sun, not too many clouds! Then we went to the house ... Played some drinking - Yatzee - I think that Kim Keith won that one by a LANDSLIDE! Then we - well Andy cooked out and we all got ready to go out. We went to the Pavilion - this is it's last year - they are taking it down, so we went and played some games, rode some rides and had a lot of laughs! Here are some great pictures from the weekend ... I hope you enjoy!

To all of you SnowBE's - mark your calendar in PEN for the 4th annual Buzzfest nest year - Labor Day Weekend!

Weekend trip to Raleigh

Hey everyone ... I am not real sure why I say everyone cause I am not even sure anyone reads this thing ... but if you do thanks for visiting and checking in on me! Now onto my blog:

This weekend I went to Raleigh to visit Julie. (check out my "mySpace" she is one of my favorite sisters ) she is now 5-1/2 months prego and oh so cute ... she has a little pooch starting to show. While we didn't do too much we had the absolute best time. I think that I laughed harder this weekend than I had in a VERY long time and it was wonderful ... my tummy muscles and cheeks still hurt last night when I got home. Her and Rick are in their first owned home and it is awesome! Very nice sized rooms, large kitchen with a square like island, a very large master bedroom and bath. The babies room is already painted, I think she called it Sweat Pea ... it is a very pretty green color. I loved it ... anyway while I had a great time I am glad to be home with my hubby who got to go to the Bristol Races this weekend ... he was so happy he was like a pig in shit.

Well not much time left until we go to Jamaica ... 40 days to be exact ... and yes I am counting!
Some SnowBE's come to town this weekend and I am looking forward to another weekend of great laughs!

Have a great week!

We are going to Cleveland first to see my Grandma ... 93 and god bless her her brain is great her body is falling apart.

Ha ha
2nd random:
I haven't heard anything from Courtney today ... I got a text message yesterday saying she was headed to the hospital but no word yet ... Calling Chris now! No answer straight to voice mail!
3rd and last:
I recently sent a e-mail to Donnie Sanders ... God I love him, he truly is a great friend and all around nice guy. Anyway I sent him a e-mail asking him if he know Eryn ... My secretary's BF, she is a jewelry designer out of NY ... You know testing that whole 5 degrees of separation ...
Anyway he didn't know her but would like to get to know her ... So he can publish an article about her ... He just started writting for a web site ... Check out his latest article it is FABULOUS!
From Donnie:
"Click the link for my most recent story about Vintage stores in NYC. "

Weekend Bash

This weekend Melanie and William came to town! They got here around noon and we headed to the beach with my parents. We stayed at the beach until around 3 then headed to the house to get ready for the 38 Special concert. (one of Williams favorite bands was a HOB, Andy got us free ticks) Anyway we got the house and all decided we better get a start on our buzz ... We played Drinking Yatzee ... Before the end of our 3rd game we had each downed 4 beers. Andy got home, we all started to get ready and Steve one of Williams friends made it to town. We waited for us to get ready and we all loaded up to go grab a bite to eat ... We ate at Yokoso in NMB and then headed over to the House of Blues ... We had a blast and the beer and shots were going down WAY to easy. Steve and William both ended up getting sick, but a great time was had by all!
You can't take a camera into the HOB so this is all we got ...

Pic 1: Jeff doing my Tat
Pic 2: Cheri taking a Tickle My Pickle
Pic 3: Cheri and Kim self portraits
Pic 4: Cheri blowing chunks!

Okay so the deal all week (last week) was for Cheri and I to go straight to Jeffs' tottoo shop after work on Friday. The plan was to have a couple of drinks, hang out and then me get my tattoo. Well lets just say that plan worked great. We left work around 3:30 stopped at Kroger (who had NO coozies in stock, did I mention it is like 100 degrees here?) Then headed over to the shop. We got to the shop and the plan was in effect ... Jeff was working on some other guy and Cheri and I started to drink. We both had beer and Tickle My Pickles ... Guess what ... Our fool asses drank the whole bottle of Tickle My Pickles. Before the night was over we were both Trashed, I started picking on Cheri cause she can be mean to Jeff ... *Note- she was not being mean, but can be mean. Well my drunk self was so "picky" that Jeff even started standing up for Cheri! Wow can you imagine being sober having to put up with me and Cheri? She was actually very mellow due to the alcohol and a small pill she had taken earlier ... She ended up "blowing chunk's" behind the dumpster at Shoney's. *NOTE- we didn't even eat at Shoney's it was a "pull over please I am gonna hurl" ha ha anyway it was a blast, Cheri now calls me the DEVIL and all I can do is laugh!
I think next time we venture out into the real world we should both drink a little less and leave the pills at home!

Okay so on Saturday we ordered the UFC fight between shamrock and Ortiz. We invited almost 15 people to the house with 10 showing up. We are eating, drinking and have a great time ... Until we turn the TV to the Pay-Per View channel to watch the pre game show ... And it is not on! OMG Andy is cussing he sat on the phone for nearly 1 hour ordering this fight. It isn't on ... We decide to try and purchase it through the TV it's self .. Nope wont let us! Okay so we all leave and head to Jud and Julia's to catch it on their TV ... Andy is still cussing. "I'm going to call Time Warner and tell them _____ ___ ___ " I laugh. Andy calls Time Warner on Monday to see why in the world we couldn't get the fight ... The lady on the phone continues to tell Andy that our Bill is past due ... His first reply is "when I was on the phone with the lady to order why didn't she tell me that?" "Sir, i am not sure, I was not the one on the phone with you." Then all of a sudden a light in his head ... Wait a minute ... "You automatic draft our payments!, How can it be late?" "sir, we just switched over or billing system and some people did not have their auto pay taken out last month." "Okay so that is my fault HOW?" Stupid Bitch ... How can we be responsible when they don't draft our account?! Anyway that was my bitch session and you can count on the fact that we will be calling some new cable companies!

Well my 4th of July was pretty relaxing. Saturday I cleaned the house up and down, okay well maybe just the 1st floor, but it was spotless! Sunday the plan was to go to the Inlet with Shauna, Brandon and Yvonne. Andy and I get to the Inlet and Brandon's boat took a stand and said NO MORE! It would not start, everyone was so bummed especially Brandon ... But Yvonne saved the day we went to her mom's pool and chilled out all day! It was awesome! Monday I did laundry and hung at the house trying to stay cool ... It was ridiculously HOT! For the 4th I went to the Inlet with T & D ... it was awesome! The sun was hot, the beer was cold and the friends were out in numbers! It really was fun! The plan was to go to eat at T & D's when Andy got off work, but he was too tired ... We were in bed by 9.
Other than that I relaxed caught up on TV and me and Dudley time!

Great Breakfast idea

Okay I just got this e-mail from Nikki, my cousin's girlfriend and of course my friend! Anyway it had a great idea for breakfast omelets ... Check it out:

This works great !!!
Good when you're alone or when all your family is together.

Best feature is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!!

Have guests write their name on a quart-size spills freezer bag with permanent marker. -

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the quart size spills bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.- Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.- Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake.
- Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up. -
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes.
You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. - Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
- Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece having these ready the night before, and putting the bag in boiling water while you get ready. And in 13 minutes, you have a nice omelet for a quick breakfast!!!

Stupid People

Okay so get this ... at work we do evaluations on a 2 time a year basis ... Our last evaluations were in March. One of our guys got a $0.25 an hour raise. Yesterday he went to one of our managers and asked him if he could look into taking away his raise?! That it caused him to have to pay to much taxes. He was only getting another $6 - 7 a week on his check and he thought that it was not worth it ... We tired to explain that the government figures his retirement on his pay scale and taxes paid in. We also tried to explain that with every $6 - 7 each week eventually it could be $28 - 35 each week ...
Now do you still want to ask why this place drives me NUTZ?!

Weird Week

This week has been a really busy, weird week! Work has been crazy, because it is billing week and home life has been mellow and slow! It has actually been very weird. Not much really going on, we are still trying to plan our anniversary vacation which is really messed up because it is currently planed for the same weekend as my college (Lees McRae College) homecoming.
We are trying to figure out how to do it another weekend so I
can be at the homecoming. But so far it has not been working out. I am not going to give up just yet. But I will have to make a decision soon because I was supposed to be in charge of getting the house and stuff for all of the Snow BE's. A ACK Stress is not good.

Other than that not much going on ... We were offered a Mountain house to use for a quick getaway any weekend we want and I hope that this weekend the gang from MB can figure out a plan for that!

My current calendar is looking pretty bare ... I don't have anything in pen until July 21st when Melanie and William come back to the beach for a weekend visit and to celebrate Williams Birthday! Then August 1 - 6th I am off to Ohio. To visit family for the great ol Football hall of Fame. We go to this every year and my aunt puts on a great party! After that I am headed to Jamaica with my Hubby in October for our anniversary! I want to plan a trip to Raleigh to see Julie and Rick's new house (and of course to rub that baby belly). I want to plan a trip to Cali. To see Scott and Kristy. And of course the trip we want to plan to go to the Mountains.

Okay time to stop rambling about my hopeful travels ... But one last note: if you have a moment check out my friend Stephanie's blog. Her brother is FAMOUS, he is in the band Motion City Soundtrack : Her family is so proud and I think it is just awesome to say I know someone who has a famous family member! Ha ha

Hope you all have a great rest of the week, it is almost over!

Expect all announcements made over the loudspeaker of moving subways, trains, planes or buses to be inaudible or unintelligible.

Wow - I think this one is horrible ... While we were in NY City, we rode the subway! We had no problems hearing what stop we were at.

The Carolina Hurricanes won The Cup!
It was awesome! Andy was yelling at the TV, the dog was hiding and my heart was racing. It was a great game ... we actually won! Now watch out Raleigh, Myrtle Beach has talk of getting our own team. I am not sure if it is a "pro" team or a farm team, but they have talked about moving them from Florence, SC to Myrtle Beach.

Never complain to the driver about the smell on his taxi.

Today was a CRAZY day ... Work is nutz and I really have NO IDEA how any building in SC can pass inspection or stay standing for that matter. Never mind the hurricanes and floods, but the contractors here are PLAIN STUPID! Stupid I say. I can name 2 dozen buildings I wouldn't step foot in if I had a choice. But I wont list them here, just ask me before you buy any condos, or send your child to school!
The Hurricans (Hockey) team plays tonight. This is it, if they win they are the Cup Champs, if they loose they are LOSERS. Andy and I are sitting on the couch watching Hells Kitchen with the Hockey game in PIP. We are switching back and forth and of course the dog is upstairs hiding under the bed from Andy yelling at the TV, SCORE!
One last thought, I got a great e-mail today about a free bracelet to support Cervical Cancer. "Connect with your friends, daughters, and other people you enjoy and care about to create your own personal statement to help in the fight against cervical cancer." The bracelet is FREE all you have to do is fill out the form and for every 2 ordered money is raised for cervical cancer research. Go Check it out!
Even if you are a male you can order them for the females in your life!

Love you all hope you have a wonderful week!

Why gibberish?! Well honestly I have so much to say that I don't even know how to get it all organized! So I will just start with the announcement that I am another honorary aunt. I don't have any real nieces or nephews because the one sibling I have, does not have children. (even if he did I wouldn't know it, we haven't spoken in years) But some of my very best friends in the world do. The newest addition to my extended family:

First Picture: Kaylie only a few minutes old
Mommy and Kaylie Just after birth: looking great Trea!

So congratulations to Trea and Rick! Kaylie is beautiful and I can't wait to witness her growing up! Andy and I love all of you!

I guess that really is the most exciting news I have ... Other than the fact that work is swamped, we keep getting bid after bid after bid, and usually we bid and get no awarded jobs. Something has changed it seems like we are getting every job we have bid lately ... Even the ones we bid high. Which is great, but we will have to hire some more people that is FOR SURE! On Monday we bought a new delivery truck ... We knew our old one wouldn't make it through all the work we have coming up .... The new truck is awesome and our delivery driver is now OFFICIALLY spoiled!
The Hurricanes lost last night in over time ... ... That sucks they will now have to play the next game out of town ... Which is BAD. For any of you who played sports you understand this. "home team advantage" is NO JOKE! We will see how it all goes but that "Stanley Cup" is looking future and future away.
I think this weekend will be low key and spent relaxing and getting ready for our busy busy summer and all of the upcoming travels!

Well last night when I got off work I took the dog out in the back yard to play fetch ... I live on a lake and we have a lot of "wild life." Well we recently had a new addition of 5 baby swans. They are so cute ... I decided to stop playing ball and feed them. At first everything was okay, I fed them, and Dudley just sat there and watched. I sat down in the grass to take some pictures of them, Dudley by my side just watching them as well. They didn't seem to mind that we were there ... Then a turtle or a fish swam under one of the "parents" and it started to jerk it legs up and down and hiss and honk ... wow the honk, it was a God awful sound! Well Dudley got scared and started to whimper ... The swans did not like that ... They started at us ... Got out of the water and chased us. Dudley ran me over trying to beat me to the house ... It was so funny I thinks would have won Americas Funniest Videos! Today ... Not so funny ... I have a big bruise and a few scratches on my arm that hurt like hell! ha ha Oh well!
Other than that not much going on, I sat on the couch and watched the Hurricanes get another win ... One step close to winning the Cup! While watching the game I was surfing the web. First for a vacation and then I found the best site in the world ...
They have it all! I ordered a few things and can't wait for them to come in!
See ya later!

Don't allow a dog to ride in a vehicle with it's head out the window. A pebble, an insect, even the wind can damage its eyes.
WOW ... If I didn't let my dog hang his head out my window he would disown me! Oh well ...
Hello World of bloggers ... here I am, trying yet again to get a handle on this BLOG thing. My name is Kim, I live in the hot weather of SC and I am the VP of the company I work for. I am married to the most wonderful man on Earth ... Andy. We were married in October of 2004. Since then we have built a new home and have just started trying for a family.
The past week I have realized that while I can operate Quickbooks Pro, Excel and AOL with my eyes shut that is the extent of my computer knowledge. On a daily basis is read the blog of Melanie and the blog of Stephanie I am amazed with their knowledge or their patience. I have tried about 80 times to change the look of my "template" and the layout of my page and each time I loose all the work I have do ... So this is it, this is all you get!
I hope you enjoy reading all about me and my Krazy thoughts ...
