It's all fun & games until someone falls asleep mid sentence

I gave this blog that ^ name because that very thing almost happened to me this weekend... at work... in front of my boss. Yep. Ridiculous.
So... the morning sickness has yet to go away. It's less intense these days but it's still here. In it's place however is fatigue. When I say fatigue I mean grueling, can't think, can't speak, just want to lay down for a couple of years fatigue. How on earth do women do this after they have already had a couple of children? Or even just one? Where on earth do they find the time for a nap or even just to sit down for a couple of moments?
Today I made myself push through the fatigue for awhile, went to class, got some grocery shopping done, put together some freezer crock pot meals, cooked dinner, watched a documentary for school, watched TV with the husband and now here I am. I am super tired, I don't even know why I am writing this. I think it's because I am so tired that I can't sleep. This is probably just a bunch of mindless rambling.
I did however learn one very important lesson today! I know how to save money on groceries now! Wanna know the secret? Ok, I will tell you. The secret is.....DO NOT  take your husband grocery shopping with you. I spent $81.34, prepared and  put 12 crock pot freezer meals in the freezer, 16 homemade breakfast burritos and 16 lunch burritos in the freezer, bought a gallon of milk, cereal, and I still have a bunch more freezer meals to make tomorrow. Amazing! Plus it took me 30 minutes to gather up this stuff at the store. With the husband, a shopping trip could take hours. Husband: I need chips. Me: They aren't on the list, I didn't budget that in. Husband: So? Me: Nope. Should have put them on the list when I said, "Husband is there anything you want on the list?" ... Ten minutes later we are still arguing over chips.
Anyways, I am now so tired that I may fall asleep mid sentence again and I keep having to fix my spelling which means I am not with it. Goodnight all! Love, V and Mini V

My Newest Journey

Hello fellow bloggers, followers, friends, and stalkers. I only add the stalker part because it's been a while since I logged on and when I logged on today I found a few new messages that were a little... weird. Unfortanelty they were not worth anyone's time so I deleted them and now I am forgetting them in 3...2...1.

So, if we are Facebook friends then you have probably read the news....
Yes, it is true, we are expanding. Or at least I am, out of every pair of Cruel Girl and Calvin Klein jeans I own. I'm all Nacho Libre these days in my strettccchy pants. Also, for the record, the hair tie trick is not as dependable as one would think, the term "morning sickness" is ludicrous, (Originally I spelled that like this- Ludacris. Shit. Thanks a heap Pop culture for ruining me.) I am not sure if I am actually resting while I sleep anymore, and no matter how much you love your spouse you dislike him a lot at 3 o'clock in the morning while you are camping out in the bathroom with a bottle of tums praying that you are going to keep down that bottle of water and he is sleeping so peacefully in bed that you can hear him snoring 15 feet away through cinder block walls. I'm just being honest.

Anyways, the point of this blog is to warn you. I have been reading up on all this pregnancy, child raising stuff and so far it's been all butterflies and lolli pops but trust me when I tell you that it's not. Not that I'm not enjoying being pregnant, there are some awesome advantages but Holy Macaroni y'all let's be honest here. So for the next 30 weeks I plan on sharing this journey and I'm not leaving out how I really think or feel or whatever because, I'm an open book like that.
