Viva Mexico!

We are the Hermanos Macho Nachos. (Ry in Pink, Eric in Green/Red)
We got back from Guanajuato Mexico last week and had a rad time hanging out with our aunts Carleen and Aleda and staying at their awesome Haciendas, show offs! Their houses are way cool, gotta get one some day; complete with stone arches, hand crafted iron gates, old wood doors, barrel vaulted brick ceilings, scorpions, etc., all enclosed in a 12 foot stone wall and courtyard just for the heck of it.
We really wanted to go see some sweet authentic Mexican Lucha Libre, but we missed it by one day dangit.
Bet you all wish you could have gone to Mexico too but you didn't, and we did but you guys weren't there, but we were, and you all stayed in the US, but we went to Mexico. Watch me get diareah for saying that, oh crap, I just did. Bet you all wish you had diareah like me but you don't, but I do and you guys only get to take a normal crap but I get to burn every hour while you all get to do what ever you want without thinking about running to the bathroom really soon, but I get to check my email and try to wait an extra second to finish reading it then crap my pants when I try to get up, but you guys don't get to do that kinda stuff like me couz I went to Mexico and drank an authentic limonada made with bacteria water. Frick!
I didn't really want to write all this I just wanted to post the picture of the Nacho Macho. Layta Skatas.

Well hello everyone! Let’s see, where did I last leave off? Oh yes, I was 5 weeks on the prego side. Since my last post I have felt really great. Only a few days where I haven’t been too excited about how I feel, a little stomach pain and a lovely head cold. For this very reason I started getting nervous, thinking that maybe I was making this whole pregnant thing up. I thought, how embarrassing is this going to be when I go to my first doctor’s appointment, and the lady’s all…And you’re here because? So, I got to my appointment, and told the lady that I had this weird fear that I wasn’t really pregnant. The doctor said that that wasn’t a weird fear because she has to tell at least one girl A DAY that they aren’t pregnant! What?! Anyway, so she said just to make me feel better she would do an ultrasound so we could SEE the baby! I was sooo excited. So, Eric and I got to see our little peanut head (we call it this because it looks just like a peanut). You can see the head and feet/tail! I so wish we had a scanner so I could show it to you guys! It’s little heart was beating like a million times a minute. It was awesome. I couldn’t stop laughing for some reason, and it kept shaking the ultrasound thing all over da place. Anyway, then I got to have a lovely pap smear and lots of blood work—oh so fun! So, I am currently 10 ½ weeks along (that ½ is really important to me!).

For some strange reason people keep finding it necessary every time they ask me how I’m doing and I say great, they think they need to tell me, “Oh just wait, it gets way worse. I was great during my first trimester too, then it turned out awful!” Seriously, is that necessary? Why would you tell me that…can’t you just let me have a great pregnancy?! Huh, huh?! My gosh, it drives me nuts. Or the people who are like…Oh man, you have a LONG way ahead of you! I swear, if I were complaining about it then you could say that to me, but I don’t say anything to them, and they have to say that to me. So dumb. Anyway, enough of that.

I am finally starting to get into the routine of my job. It has taken me a long time to adjust…at least it feels like it to me. It’s weird going from being in school all the time where you can kind of choose if you want to go, or when you want to do what to something where it’s hours upon hours of the same thing, and you HAVE to go no matter what. Also, it’s been hard for me because I know that as soon as I have my baby I’m not working anymore for who knows how long (hopefully A LONG time!), so it just seems so temporary to me that I haven’t been putting my heart into it. But, I do love most of the kids. I have some pretty annoying ones too, but the little kids are so dang cute. Also, every other week I switch off and work in the preschool doing speech lessons and centers, and that is so fun. It’s a completely autistic preschool in the morning (which is very challenging—all nonverbal!), and then the afternoon class is all kids that have some sort of disability, usually pretty severe. So, it proves for some interesting days in there…but they are sooo cute!

So, as some of you know a couple weeks ago I spent a lame week by myself while Eric was with his fam in Mexico! Blasted job…yet another reason I’m excited to not work for a long time. It was a long week, but it really wasn’t horrible, I spent tons of time hanging out with my family, then had two girls nights that weekend. Still though, I so wish I could’ve been with all of them!

Anyway, enough for now. I’ll see some of you in Vegas for Chelsea’s wedding, and those of you who I don’t see, we seriously need to have a girls night—that’s you too Mandy and Alli!! No excuses!! Just kiddin, we should come to you, especially when it starts to get all sick and cold here!
