What the what?

There have been so many random thoughts fluttering in my crazy mind lately that I believe that I need to get them out of my brain and into the cyber world and hopefully this will declutter my unorganized thought pattern.

Firstly I am in love with the Olympics (anyone else?..)  With that said how could they give McKayla Maroney any deductions for that vault that she landed so perfectly in the team finals?  I am still blown away by this.

It has been said that I get my crazy from my Mom and she got it from her Grandma Sessions.  So to my future children I would like to say:
I'm sorry your mom is crazy.  She had no hope from the beginning.  Neither do you, but being crazy sure makes for a fun life and some good stories - just go with it :)

I'm about to get a little graphic here and sorry for the information that you really probably don't want so if you are skiddish go ahead and close your eyes now.  For all of you who don't know I had a miscarriage almost two months ago (by d and c)  and for the love when does the bleeding stop? (and also when do the bills stop coming - jk I know that answer to that is never!)  It's not like niagra falls anymore but still come now it is time to move on.

I seriously think about this all the time but I have no idea how I got so lucky that my husband is so freaking awesome! Really (you can all gag right about now) he makes everything that is great even better or things that suck seem to not be so bad.  He even will compare real life events to Harry Potter with me.  Now that my friends is true love.

I want a Toyota FJ Cruiser.  A blue one.  It's beautiful. 

We went and saw The Dark Knight Rises.  Seriously so good.  Caleb has a serious man crush on Bane.  He is even talking about shaving his head to try to be more like him...should I be worried?  If he did though I would only have one question to ask... Death or Exile?..(and yes we are being Bane and Catwoman for Halloween)

Once again we are going to the graphic portion of my post so please feel free to skip.  But I would like some womanly opinions  I have been talking to almost seriously everyone about whether or not they prefer natural childbirth or the epidural (can you tell I have baby on the brain?).  I just don't know.  I like the idea of natural but with the option of the epidural if I start to freak out.  I don't know.  I really just don't. On TV you always see women screaming and freaking out in pain and those images scare the crap out of me.  I just don't know.

My parents sold their boat.  My life is over.

I suck at catching frogs.  We went to Bear Lake over the weekend with Caleb's fam and there was this little pond with frogs all over the place.  I think I would get too excited and go really fast and freak them out and I needed to have a little more patience, but it was way fun.  Our nephew Davis would get so excited whenever someone caught a frog he could would just start yelling and jumping around, it was so cute. He named all the frogs Batmonk.

Anybody have any new comments on the Dumbledore vs. Gandalf question? We started rewatching the Lord of the Rings Trilogy which of course made me question which wizard was best.  I'm still leaning towards Dumbledore.  Gandalf is pretty hard core for sure, but you never know what Dumbledore is going to bring.

Well thats all for my random ramblings.  Sorry to put you through that, but it needed to come out.  Just for kicks enjoy a pic of me and my amor.

Cute pic! You are so funny even when talking about hard things. You are quite an amazing woman. We miss you. I haven't had a d&c but after having my kids I bled FOREVER also. Like 2 1/2 months. LAME! I also say go for the epidural. With Cru I made it to a 9 1/2 and then started freaking. I will get it earlier from now on. Sorry you had a miscarriage what a hard thing to go through. Love ya! Hang in there!

Love the ramblings. Keep em coming! Ps EPIDURAL. I was totally wanting to go natural, but the second those real contractions came on I could have shot myself in the foot for even thinking about it! Who knows though, you are a much more patient person than me so who knows. You could probably do it. And also the bleeding doesn't stop! Keep those tamps stalked sister. I loved this post and I love you! Keep your chin up. That beautiful baby will arrive at the perfect time!! Xox

Well, no tampons if you've misscarried though. I've miscarried and you do bleed and after a baby forever it seems, but take it easy or the bledding will not go away and will get heavy again. Natural would be cool. I have made it to an 8 before twice but then lose control and start crying through contractions rather than breathe which is just agonizing. Epidurals are heaven sent especially when laboring on your own all through the night with no sleep ;) By the time I got there and was an 8 I was so exhausted, I just fell apart. Make sure if you are getting one, you ask for it before it's too late or they won't give it to you. Also, if you are going to labor on your own, I recommend NOT doing it lying down. That is the worst way to labor, get up, walk, squat, lean against a wall, whatever, don't just lay there, it makes it so much worse!!

You'll know after the first one if you think you could go natural...if I could just get from an 8 to a 10 without crying. That seems to be my breaking point, 8.

Haley I had no idea of all your life happenings! We need to get together. I miss you and your craziness. Being crazy is totally funner than sanity. I'm so sorry you had to go through all that. I want to come hug you and cry with you and go to lagoon to make it all better. I love you so much. You seriously crack me up. Dumbledore all the way.
