The Cookie Always Knows

Well, as long as after all this we end up settling down happily... I suppose I can deal with all the work it takes to make the many changes. Sigh. It's a good thing Mom's here.
I like it when she's in the surrounding vicinity, because she really does take good care of me. (I just need her for a little longer Dad, then I promise I'll send her back.)

In other news, I had an ultrasound on Monday. I asked the technician to check and make sure that Hannah hadn't grown any bits that she shouldn't have... If she was indeed a Hannah of course. If she wasn't then the bits would be perfectly appropriate. Anyways... still no bits! AND she's flipped the right side down, which is why I think my heartburn and bladder pain (and WAY too constant peeing) seem to have diminished. I am feeling much more comfortable than I was a week ago. Actually, not at this present moment. At this present moment I am decidedly uncomfortable, but I'm tired and Hannah is doing some kind…


If you were going to visit a friend of yours and you wanted to park near their house but your only available options were:
Park in front of your friend's driveway, thus possibly blocking your friend's car in, but since you're there anyways you can always move your vehicle if someone needs to get out.Park a little further down the street, not too far, but a little further than ten steps away from the front door.OR
Park in front of the neighbor's driveway. They don't need to go anywhere. In fact, they just got home. You know this because they had to honk to get you to move just so they could pull in.
Which would you choose?

Just wondering, because the option I would choose does not seem to be very popular with my neighbors or their friends... Just as I imagine our request that they move AGAIN in a few minutes when Glen needs to drive to the new house will not be very popular. Good thing we're moving.

Can't Talk, Painting.

Things are very busy here at Willems central, if you don't believe me then you should know that I have three weeks of Grey's Anatomy and last week's Survivor episode on tape and I have no idea when I'm going to watch them. They're just sitting there. Here's why:
We took possession of the new house on Monday. I bought some paint.
On Tuesday we took down all of the venetian blinds and curtains, had someone come to remove all of the junk that the previous owners had left behind, ripped out the carpet from one of the bedrooms, pulled off all of the bedroom baseboards and trim, took down all of the cupboard doors in the kitchen and wiped out the inside of the cupboards, discovered that the carpet underlay had been glued to the sub-floor, discovered that a pipe coming out of our water meter had a hole in it and squirted water when we turned it on, discovered that the water heater leaked when we turned it on, and managed to get one third of one of the bedroom floors scr…

Fine. I'll do it.

I've been tagged on facebook about 25 times to post "25 random things about me" so I figure I should give this a go. Plus, my sister-in-law did hers, and it was awesome. Mine won't be as awesome because I feel way too dumb to do this and because I'm not as awesome, but I'd like to be. Taking all that into consideration, I'm going to cut myself some slack and just post 25 random things about me and other stuff. Here goes:
Lately, when Ben gets mad at Glen or me, he tells us that he's going to marry someone else. Who is that someone else? You can't guess? It's Grampa. Tonight was the latest episode. I told him, "Fine. Call Grampa and tell him." Then I started dialing the phone. "You tell Grampa why you want to marry him instead of us, and ask him if that sounds okay." He got embarrassed and told me he'd changed his mind. LOL. I totally called his bluff and it totally worked.
(I'm already out of random things. Hmmm... Do…


I'm not feeling very bloggy lately. I think it's because I'm too dumb right now to come up with anything more to say than just general "I did this today" and "I went there yesterday" type stuff. Boring. But here comes some of that for those of you who need to be in the know.

Last night I got up to pee about 14 times. I am not kidding or exaggerating. I swear this baby has her knee resting right on my bladder, because if I have more than a teaspoon of urine in there, it is incredibly painful. I have to go immediately EVERY SINGLE TIME I stand up. Maybe tomorrow I will keep count all day to see how many times I go pee in a 24 hour period. Just for interests sake. I won't tell you about it though, since I'm pretty sure I am the only one interested.

We got a new offer on our house today. I'm pretty sure it's because of the amazing new baseboards and trim I put up last week. That, and all the Febreeze Ben sprayed just before the showing. (He s…
