still not a good blogger...

Yeah so much for keeping up to date on things on a virtual journal. Let's see...I am about 20 weeks pregnant now, no longer a professional guardian, back to a full time caregiving job, been married about 5 months now, still have a crazy ass dog but I think our cat got eaten while we were in Montana last month. Have a freezer full of meat, peaches, blackberries and blueberries and that's about it. I am not feeling especially creative at the moment, I think if my house was cleaner my thoughts would be too....and I mean that if every way it can be taken LOL Ah well maybe a good nights sleep will help and the creativity can begin later...

Okay I am going to explode...there will be little bits of Rachel all over the computer room (or wherever I happen to be when this actually occurs!) We have been trying for a baby for not too long at all...the wedding was on the 26th of April and it's now the 10th of June and I pretty much went off birth control days before the wedding. I think I am pregnant though...I am a bit symptomatic so I took a test yesterday at work and it came out POSITIVE!!! I wonder if everyone goes through the "I'm soo happy but now what the hell am I going to do" phase. I couldn't be happier and this is totally planned...Adam can't stop grinning like an idiot ( I think he is very proud of himself too lol) but there's no turning back now. I know that if you have unprotected sex it can lead to a pregnancy but....well I don't know what but it's just a totally surreal feeling knowing that sometime between Valentines Day and my birthday (I'm guessing) I will be giving birth! That's just too weird to think about. I took another test this am but it was a dud...didn't even have the control line show up so I am going to take another one later today and then schedule a blood test. AHHHH, oh my gosh...there is a serious danger of explosion I'm tellin' ya!

I really really hate saying goodbye even if I know it's not forever. We had a going away party last night for a friend of mine-he is going on tour with his band and he is soooo excited about it. I am so proud of him for doing it. They'll be spending the next 2-3months going cross country playing at tons of places along the way and having some amazing life experiences I'm sure. He mentioned something about getting pierced because he'll be away from his girlfriend for months (which was more info than I needed but I was amused anyway) and that would certainly be a life changing experience! I made him a cake though-as a going away/birthday cake because he'll be gone for the bday. It was shaped like a guitar and I found a "grow your own metal hero" at the store and put that on top. There was also a second smaller cake as a "stage" and I got pictures of all the guys that are in the band and put them on skewers and made a banner of their band name and had them all onstage! It turned out really well...a friend took pics and I will get her to email them to me and I'll post them. Maybe I should go back to school in the culinary arts. I would hate to do that though and then end up hating cooking because I chose to do it as a career. Ah well we'll see what happens. They kick off their tour tomorrow though and at least he'll be well connected with cell phone and laptop for updates!

surreal experiences!

Okay I just copy and pasted this from an email I had sent out to people outlining the craziness that happened to me....this happened about a month ago.

First off OH MY GOSH!!!! Okay so yesterday I had the longest day ever...started at 2:45am-I had to be with my client at around 3:45am and go with her to the hospital for surgery. We were there til about 5pm. So I was already tired and just wanted to read my book or close my eyes on the ferry til we got home. Yeah that didn't happen. A young gentleman who was blind and possibly DD sat down one chair away from me and introduced himself so me being me I said hi back and introduced myself as well and told him about the preboarding option because it makes it a lot easier for those in wheelchairs or can't see or whatever else. I then (for the half hour before the ferry leaves oh and the ENTIRE ferry ride-because he's now attached to me) get the story of his life. He was in a freak chemical accident (he was the operating manager of a chemical plant at 17 or 18 and they didn't have enough haz-mat outfits for everyone so since he was in charge he didn't get one) followed by being pushed into this radioactive gunk. This radioactive gunk is what saved his life. Well this incident caused blindness but it's also reversed the aging process of his cells. Prior to this accident he had learned an amazing martial art that made him able to fracture someone's arm in 72 places just by shaking their hand and it's not allowed to be taught to someone outside of family-but if he adopted me he could teach me! Which wouldn't be strange at all because even though in this body he is only 22 yrs old he is really 40,000yrs old so I guess he is my senior. His IQ of 194 also made him some enemies but since his family is very wealthy...royalty actually then he has been safe overall. The reason why he was traveling alone-to and from Seattle where he is the CEO of a jewelry company-is because he gave his handmaiden a day off. Well he has 10 of them actually but yesterday was just their day off and he still had to go and check on his business even though he basically has a twin brother who is co-CEO with him. It's a good thing I have such an open mind though because now I could go with him to awaken myself to the world the way it is and not just the world the way we all see it. A nice vacation to another plane or something. Not just one of the 9 known astral planes but one of the three that he has created and only he or his family can access....their kind of like Hawaii but with different colored oceans and things like that. I'm so glad I made a new comes in handy knowing a pegasus even though he is in man form. He's got buddies that are phenixs and dragons in human form too, like his friends Shadow and Spike. They sound keen. He can control all of the natural elements too which is also super handy considering he gets motion sickness and the boat started to rock so he just concentrated and made the wind die down and the water to get less choppy thereby relieving the need to vomit. And with that control he also has the ability to heal some's like a transference from the other person to him. A trading of power if you will. He takes out the bad and puts in the good and then discards the bad out of him somehow...he said it's hard to explain. He could help my client with her MS and dementia-maybe not heal it but he could help it. He is getting a program started to help people out that don't have the means to do so and the state won't cover it. Because the government is awful anyhow. CPS workers get like a $500,000 bonus for each kid they take out of the home-they usually send the kid back and they get killed but it's all good for them because they get that check. We are controlled by the UN anyhow...we don't actually have a government here in the USA it's just a cover. Ah well he wanted some contact info from me but as luck would have it I don't have any business cards with me and darn it he was gonna miss his bus! I told him I would keeping checking online for that website of his that he's been meaning to get put up for his fine jewelry company and get back with him once he's done that.
Oh and then I see my friends fiancee when we are leaving, Erich could've saved me had I seen him earlier but alas he doesn't get to preboard. Someday's I just wish I could be bitchier....

navy vs civilian

Okay so I learned something new the commissary on base the people that take your groceries out only earn what they get in tips. Is it just me or is that messed up?? Especially when people like me who have no idea that they only earn tips and is totally used to civilian life goes in there and says "oh I've got it, there's only 2 bags !Ican carry them myself" which I suppose is better than letting them take it out and then not tipping them because I don't know the protocol. This whole getting used to navy life is very strange. I am digging free gym access though! Oh and knowing that I can go to the ER at the navy hospital and it's not going to cost me a penny. That's pretty cool too! I've only been married to the military for a month (in 3 days lol) and I learn new things almost daily. It's going to be an interesting adventure...I'll keep you all posted on the wonderful things I learn! I have another story from last month too that's too hilarious not to share so I'll post that next time...ta-ta for now

Day one...a year and a half later

Okay so I guess I set this up in 2006, well it's now 2008 and I am posting my first blog. The last few years have been pretty busy. I met the man of my dreams, we got married, I did training for a new job that I was sure I would love and want to do for the rest of my life and now I am doing everything in my power to get out of it ASAP. We are trying to have a baby....not as vigorously as we probably should but hey the husband tore a pectoral muscle last week. The shooting pain whenever he tries to move it or gets jostled puts a damper on things. Hopefully soon things will calm down and then I can get things figured out a bit more.
