Sorry it’s been a while…

Category cancer sucks, house stuffs

Lots of things have happened in the past week and a half, some good, some bad. I haven’t been blogging because I’ve actually been quite busy at work, if you can believe it!

So, a quick wrap up.

We bought a grill this weekend, and raked leaves for HOURS. But we had a little BBQ on Saturday night and enjoyed our newly raked yard. Ahh, homeowner heaven.

Training starts today for the 3-Day. I have to walk 3 miles. Not to big of a deal. I can do it! (Mental note – need to buy new lock for locker at the Y.)

And the news that is mostly consuming my mind, and has been since Friday, is my auntie Julie. She’s really sick. Turns out cancer is not only in her breast tissue, but in her lungs, and more than likely her brain as well. She was in the hospital over the weekend with pnemonia – I think she’s heading home soon with a hospice. Mom said her husband said she might slip into a coma. It’s so scary. I didn’t hear anything yesterday, I guess no news is good news…but…I don’t know. It’s getting hard to keep doing this, obviously hardest on her. She doesn’t want to give up – but her body is saying otherwise. It’s just been super sucky. So far, I’ve cried or teared up in Target, on the train, and while trying to sleep (which I haven’t been doing very well at the past couple of nights).

Anyway, I don’t want to make this a depressing blog or anything – just having a hard time with everything. 😛

"A nice ending without saying goodbye."

Sara Glassman writer of the StylePoints column in the Star Tribune chatted with Tim Gunn and did some word association. I clearly have become obsessed with this man. Make it work!

So, Mrs. Jenna – what did you do last night?

The only thing saving me at this point is that I didn’t do this on a Friday or Saturday night.

I organized and cleaned the laundry room/kitty litter area of the basement. For two hours. While doing 3 loads of laundry.

I even went so far as to mop the floors.

Anal retentive, OCD – party of one.

Coming clean.

Category baby business, marriage

Alright. It’s confessional day on Blogged Bliss. I know many of you who read personally…and a handful of you I don’t. But I have a secret only a couple of you are aware of…and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m tired of hiding it.

I’ve got baby fever.

::deep exhale from weight lifted off shoulders::

Any of you who do know me know this might be the most opposite of anything you’d ever think would come out of my mouth (or fingers) – aside from me announcing I was getting married.

I was the girl in grade school, and I think even high school – where I was stoked to be a single girl forever living in a fancy loft in a big city, with my babies being my cats. The only part of that that’s true is the big city. Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely happy with the way my life has turned out – it’s just weird how my idea of my future changes with every year.

The hubs and I have talked about having kids just about as long as we’d discussed getting married. It was inevitable that we were going to get married, and the same applies to having kids. We finally kind of decided that we are going to start trying later this year. I’m both deathly afraid and totally elated about getting pregnant. And I’m also extremely scared that for whatever reason I won’t be able to.

Okay. That’s enough on that topic. I could go on and on about it…but I’d rather not be that girl.

Also – don’t be confused. I still get crabby with screaming babies and annoying brats. They’re not all cute. I don’t want them all. I just think it’d be kinda cool to have my own someday.

And, discuss.

Baby fever – get it?! Oh, my sides.

This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Mostly when Tim Gunn & Heidi Klum come in.
