Does the world expect all pregnant women to get fat?

I am going to take a moment to grumble. I have been getting fit for over a year and after all that hard work I would love to stay that way. I belong to a wonderful website called and that helps a lot with eating, meeting other mothers and even fitness. However I need a workout DVD or two to exercise with daily after work.

Today from 8:30 am -10:30 am I went on a fit mama DVD search. I went to Target, no pregnancy DVDs, then I went to Kmart no pregnancy DVDs, WalMart none either. I finally went to Hastings and they had 3. Not even multiples of those three they had 3 total. They were old. I am talking ladies in leotards with leg warmers and dust on the covers. I am so frustrated. I am now going to have to shop the net and pay shipping. First I think when I have more time I will search Barns and Noble, Best Buy and Boarders.

My question to you is "Does the world expect all pregnant women to get fat?" You know what I mean, don't you?

McCalls Pumpkin Patch

Today I called in to work and was given the OK to not go in. I was so excited I fell back in bed to sleep. Then I remembered that a large group of friends were going to the Pumpkin patch and decided we would go to. So I got my kids up and moving called the mom of my kids friends to see if they wanted to come too. I loaded up the car, got gas and went to have some fun with my little men. How I miss spending time with them. I know I am blessed to have a job and I only get sick near the end of my work shift. I just really miss my kids, especially when I hear what others have done with there families. It is OK. I spent today with my boys. I don't know how I will explain my sunburn to my boss. OOPS!

I am sorry I haven't spent much time on the Internet right now. I haven't been feeling well and have been working most every day.

Albuquerque's' International Balloon Fiesta started at the elementary schools last Friday. I had to go to work and was unable to attend with my men. On my way to work I took pictures. I pulled over and took some and some I took while driving my mini van. Let me tell you how my pregnancy has taken over my mind. I can't find my camera ;-} When I do I will add pictures. My friend Princess may take pictures while she is at the Fiesta and share them with me so I can post them here for all of you to see. It really is an amazing site to behold.

I went to my friend Anna's home on Friday night. I won't go into detail, however I will tell you that it has been a while since I have embarrassed my self so well. Pregnancy side effects are fun.

Saturday I worked. My buddy Heather worked with me and it was so fun. Well as fun as working in a telephone call center prison can be. We wrote notes like we were in Jr. High and drove each other crazy. It was a very nice change. Later we went to Deseret Book (my favorite store) for Ladies night. It was fun spending my birthday money from my Father in such a much needed way. Heather won a stupid book and we left before I won anything.

Well that is about enough to keep you up to date for now. Please keep me up to date on what is going on in your life. Bye
