Happy Friday! Wow...I can't tell you how many people emailed me regarding yesterday's journal entry. For the record... NO, I'm not pregnant. HAHAHAHA! But I suppose it's a logical conclusion when you hear someone complaining about fatigue whilst having "baby" dreams. Aric and I do want another (and we would like to keep them close together in age), but I promised Ann that I wouldn't get pregnant before her wedding. *wink* AND...I'm also holding out until after my "Girlfriends Trip". =D
was relaxing....just watched TV and played with Ashlyn. I'm trying
out a new approach...no more chasing Ashlyn. I let her go buck-wild
in the living, and as long as I can see her, she can do anything she
wants. I've been actively looking for a safety gate. Aric and I are
currently using the large box (his computer desk came in) as a make-shift
safety gate. Unfortunately, Miss Houdini figured out a way around
it. *sneaky-sneaky* She rams the barricade several times with her
head until it falls over, then she crawls over it. What a maniac!
I just tell you that Ashlyn's really good at finding the tiniest piece
of I-don't-know-what and putting it in her mouth? If it's paper or
lint, I don't trip out too much...but the other morning, she picked
up something small and black off of Aric's bedside table and stuck
it in her mouth. I tried to see what it was, but she swallowed it
by the time I pried her mouth open. That night, I asked Aric....
Brian and Grace came over. We met up with Wey and James for dinner
at Applebee's in Fountain Valley. Grace has been craving Applebee's
All-You-Can-Eat Riblet Platter since seeing the commercial. And if
there's one thing I know, you should NOT stand in the way of a pregnant
lady and her cravings. We all got the Riblet Platter. It was pretty
good. The ribs were different though. The bones were small and flat...and
the more I thought about it, the more I wondered what the heck part
of the beef or pork was it from?! *Ugh*...Applebee's mystery meat.
dinner, we all came back to our place to hang out. The guys hung out
in Aric's office while Grace and I watched TV and talked. We caught
the last 20 minutes of Madonna's concert on HBO. For one segment,
she came out in a black tank that had "mother" written on
the front in faux gems. I rolled my eyes, and thought, "yeah
yeah...now that she's a mother of two, she went and got soft".
Then when she turned around, the word "f*cker" was on the
back! HAHAHA! KICKASS! Guess she didn't lose her edge afterall. Her
concert was amazing and I have a renewed sense of admiration for her
as an artist and performer.
I've been really bad at remembering to take pictures lately. I brought out my camera tonight, but forgot to take pictures. Should have taken pictures of the Riblets so someone (a butcher perhaps) can tell me what it was that I was eating. *GAG*...can't get the scab-story outta my head. =P
Grace, Brian, and James stayed till 1am. We were in the middle of watching Stephen King's "Thinner" when they left. Aric stayed up with me so I could finish it. It was a cheesy adaptation of the novel. I enjoyed the book way more.
*YAWN!*...tired. Have a great weekend!
