it's snowing.

So I woke up at noon today, watched Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and made my way to the kitchen to feed the cats (I'm house sitting for my family while they're in Washington). Anyway, I look out the window and HOLY CRAP IT'S SNOWING.
normally, this wouldn't be such a freak-out moment, it is December in Utah. But we've had weather in the high 40s and even 50s for the past couple weeks.....I was not expecting to see little white flakes of happiness fluttering about.
so 2006, huh? That's pretty exciting. I'll tell you what though, I'm starting to feel old. And having a child isn't going to help the matter. :-) Speaking of my little one, everything is fantastic. Got another craving: Cherry. Cherry Coke. Cherry yogurt. Cherry popsicles. Cherries. it's weird.
I'm getting to that stage of pregnancy where I'm uncomfortable, and it sucks. I'm not quite screaming "GET HER OUT OF ME", but the back ache and past two days of piercing rib pain (caused by inflared nerves in my rib cage, caused by my organs being forced to make room for my ever expanding uterus) are NOT making it easy to get sleep. Which sucks, cause boy am I ever tired. All the time.
To top it all off, I'm playing this tug of war type game with my ever present thirst and not wanting to have to pee every half hour. AGH.
So here's my bests of 2005:
Movie: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Concert: Aquabats, when the Epoxies opened for them. Pure joy.
Vacation: probably the last road trip I took with Brandon...even though I got a speeding ticket and a baby in my womb.
CD: Rise Against. I could listen to that cd all day.
Living arrangement: The dorms. Lame huh. But I really miss living next door to Levi and Shohei and across the street from Jonna face.
Clutzy moment: Slipping on the ice in the parking lot to our apartments with Jonna after she persuaded me to spend money at Old Navy.
Reunion: Wade and Damon a couple weeks ago in Ephraim. I missed those two.
Job: There were quite a few this year, but I'd have to say my job now. I love it, and I love the people I work with even more. Sucks I've been so sick.
Christmas Present: My parents shocked me. They got me a new car stereo, a new stereo, and a digital camera. I'm spoiled.
Experience: Going to the doctor for our 20 week ultrasound and hearing and seeing that everything about our daughter was exactly as it should be....amazing. I think the doctor was in love with her heart, "I could just look at this heart all day! It's perfect!!" Kind of freaky, but sweet nonetheless.
And the snow is still coming down. It's only been snowing for an hour at most and there's easily an inch and a half on the ground. And the TV stopped working.

I heart cinnamon.

Almost five months into this thing and I finally have a craving: cinnamon. Pop open that spice jar and dump half of it in my hot cocoa and I'm happy.
Last week was pretty much the worst week of my life. Well, maybe not OF MY LIFE, cause I've had some pretty bad weeks, but this one definately makes the top ten. In lieu of this horrendous week, i've decided to do everything in my power to make this next week the BEST week of my life, or at least in the top ten. Here are my plans:
1. Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday I am going to make sure I have PLENTY of water and tylenol so that I can sit back at work headache free and laugh at the stupid people who pay $19.95 for me to help them locate the calcuator on their computer.
2. I will eat either cinnamon toast crunch or cinnamon sugar toast for breakfast every day this week. With a large glass of juice.
3. Friday, after sleeping as late as humanly possible, I will rock out, pregnant belly and all, to the musical sounds of my beloved Aquabats. Hopefully with Jonna, my sister, her boyfriend, and all the blessed Tooelians surrounding and protecting my tummy from elbow jabs.
4. Saturday I'm going out for either really awesome Thai food or really awesome Greek food with my friend Damon whom I haven't laid eyes upon for close to two and a half years. WOOT WOOT.
5. Sunday and Monday will be two glorious days of relaxation, filled with bubble baths and books, Christmas shopping, and possibly going to see Chronicles of Narnia, even if I have to go by myself.
6. I will concentrate extra hard in the shower in order to prevent what happened the other day. I started to wash my hair with Clean and Clear face wash and I almost cried. CRIED.
So there is my best week ever. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, but only if they will further serve to create the best week ever. If it's going to cause stress, then wait until next week.
