Bunco night!!!!

So, a little over a year ago I started a bunco group. We meet once a month and play bunco, which is a dice game. There are 12 players (all girls of course). We all rotate houses and the hostess decides on the menu and assigns out everyone to bring something to eat or drink. I look forward to this night every month. It is a girl's night out and we sit and laugh so hard! Also there are 5 prizes at the end! The reason I am telling you all this, is because I am hosting next months bunco and I am so excited about it. Since it is in October I have asked everyone to come dressed up in some sort of costume. Also I will be having everyone make these food Halloween recipes that I found online. I think that it is going to be a great night and I can't wait!
Well enough about bunco. Not too much else has been going on except work. I still am not too thrilled about my job this year. I did find out today that I have been paying for an extra insurance plan that will pay me $1900 during my maturnity leave. SCORE!!! Next week is homecoming week and of course I volunteered to be in the faculty skit and lip sync. I have one of the lead roles in the lip sync, it is freaking hillarious! If you have ever seen the Blues Brothers, we are doing a song off of that movie and I have to do a lot of dancing. I am one of the Blues Brothers, so it should be quite interesting. We practiced today and boy am I out of shape. Some of the ladies told me that I am going to put myself into premature labor. Yeah right!!!! I am so excited about it. For the skit we are doing Hollywood Squares and my part is Jessica Simpson, which is perfect because I can be the biggest blonde. The role shouldn't be that hard to pull off.
Jason is on his days off, so he has been working on our house. He textured our bathroom today and is going to tile it this weekend. I am hoping we will be in there by November. I love when Jason is off, so he can take Brock to school and I don't have to take the extra time to get him ready before I leave. Well enough blabbing for now, maybe if I posted more often I wouldn't have so much to talk about.

Why now?

Well we made it back from Joseph! If Jason and I ever get a divorce, it is going to be because of traveling together on a road trip. LOL It seems like all we do is argue over the dumbest things in the car and it annoys me that I just can't go to another room. So after Kaia's blessings Jason decided that we were going to drive back to Salt Lake and stay the night there. Well we got to Provo and ate at my favorite place, the Olive Garden. Then Jason decided that he needed to go to church in Battle Mountain the next morning, so he wanted to drive all the way home that night. I was so annoyed and tired. I told him that I refused to drive, so we made it to Wells and decided to stay the night. We got this nasty room that smelled like mold. It was a terrible night! We made it home the next morning in time for Jason to make it to Young Mens, so he could do his calling. (Since when did he care if he goes to church or not) Well enough of the venting and complaining about that.
The other thing that I would like to complain about is that since school started I tend to get night sickness. Not every night, but occasionally. So last night was the worst and I am going to tell one of the most embarassing stories that has ever happenend to me, so other people can get a good laugh. I figure if I don't tell on myself, Jason will share it will the rest of you. So I wasn't feeling good, so Jason gave Brock a bath and put him to bed. We were watching Americas Got Talent it came to the end and I ran to go to the bathroom. Well it turned out that not only did I need to go to the bathroom, but the baby decided that I needed to throw up as well. So I am sitting in the bathroom throwing up for 5 minutes straight and Jason come sin and says what is going on. I stated the obvious and he told me I sounded like a weed eater and that he had never heard anyone use so much force to throw up. I just turned and looked at him and told him to get me a towel, because I had just peed all over the floor. He started laughing and he couldn't stop. I told him it wasn't funny and that I couldn't control it. It was either puke or pee on the floor, I would much rather clean up pee. Jason wanted to call Jeremy right then and I told him no way. I have never puked so hard and so much in my life, my throat still burned for most of today and it even gets better. I was helping a student today and I had to run outside and throw up again. This is the first time that this has happenend at school. My only question is why now am I getting sick? I think I have figured out what causes it, LEMONS. Lemons don't make lemonade when you are pregnant, they just make you throw up!

My blog is being stocked!!

I am a complete looser! It is pretty bad when your husband checks your blog to see when the last time you posted. He gets on my blog all the time and checks out everyones posts and then asks why I hardly post. Well let me fill you in on what has been going on in out lives. I started teaching school on the 21st of August and Brock started his first day of Kindergarten the same day. I thought for sure I would cry as Jason and I dropped him of and got him situated in his classroom. I held back the tears and instead of realizing that my baby is growing up, I was full of excitement for him to start a new chapter in his life. I never new that Kindergartners have so much homework. We spend 30 minutes to an hour every Monday on his weekly homework that is due Tuesday or Wednesday. Also we have to read every night for 15 minutes and Brock has to read a poem that goes with the letter of the week 7 times each night. Good thing Jason is around to help! Brock likes Jason to read with him.
Jason and Brock have started to bond a lot more since school started. Jason takes him to school on his days off and picks him up. He has only been late one time and been forgotten to pick up once as well. Thank goodness for the responsible babysitter that picks up the slack. I am so glad that Jason and Brock are creating a stronger bond with each other. It has been hard for Brock to accept another authority figure, but he is finally adjusting. They have lots of fun playing around and joking with each other.
As for me when school started, I started to get a little sick. I was not very happy about the whole puking thing, but thank goodness it has stopped. I just seem to feel tired all the time. I feel like my house and yard is falling down all around me, but no matter how bad it gets, I just can't seem to find the energy to clean it. Hopefully this won't last long. So, I don't know how many of you watch Army Wives, but I am addicted. My sister bought season 1 and I watched the whole thing in a weekend. Then on Monday the season 2 marathon was on lifetime and I spent all day watching it. Again this proves that I am a complete looser! The second season isn't over yet, so I was so excited that I was able to watch it before I had to wait for it to come out on DVD. Anyway I will quit blabbing and I will try to post more often so I don't have such long posts.
