Oh Boy!

I had my ultrasound today, and yes it is official, I am having a boy! We really wanted a girl, but another boy is alright. I understand boys and they are a lot of fun. I have tons of boys’ toys, collections of Star Wars and Super Hero Squad so this kid will be born in boy heaven.

My daughter will be disappointed. Since I was also the only girl and had four brothers and can relate to her. At least she has a lot of girl cousins. I didn’t even have that. I had only one girl cousin even close to my age (she is 3 years older) and my other female cousins are way younger than I am. So I grew up playing army and getting made fun of because I was a girl! At least Viki has some girl cousins who are like sisters to her. She will be a great big sister.

Will I try again to have a girl? Nope. I plan to get my tubes tied. I have some chronic health problems that I need to take care of and plan to do that after this birth. I can be like my mother and just wait for granddaughters. She now has 6 granddaughters and they are all the most beautiful little girls. So I can look forward to that and just spoil my nieces.

I guess I need to study up on the Avengers and Star Wars since I have another boy to add to my little fan club. Maybe this one will join Viki and become a fellow Whoverian! I need to look for a cool Dalek toy to give this little boy and see if he likes it. Maybe he will be stubborn and hate Sci-fi and be a huge football fan and be a jock opposite his more nerdy brothers and sister. (I think nerds are cool!)

Well, so that is my news. I wanted to knit some cute girls things, I guess I can instead knit some preppy boy stuff and make some cute girly hats and booties for charity.

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of w

How to Attract Negative Commenters to Your Blog

I have been blogging since 2006 and one of the most interesting things is when this creature called a Troll finds your blog. A Troll is a bored scary little thing that goes through blogs, message boards, and You Tube comments saying mean, evil words creating a fight. If you've never had a troll visit your blog, it is easy to attract one. All you have to do is set a bait. Here is the bait that works the best. 1. Keep a "Conservative" blog. Extra points for being a member of the Tea Party. Trolls hate those who are Conservative and this bait successfully attracts the nastiest of trolls. Bonus points for misspelled words or bad grammer. You will suddenly get a comment about how Bush lied people died etc. 2. Write an anti- Obama post. My page views increased dramatically when I wrote a post against Obama, all were people trolling and questioning your intellect. It might not work as much now. Suddenly people will write comments questioning Bush or Reagan and how ra

The House of Ephraim and the Book of Mormon

The Bible is the story of the House of Judah. It is important because that the family that Jesus was born into. His mother Mary and her husband Joseph were both of the House of David and carried royal blood. It was important that the Bible be published for all of the world, but they aren't the only tribe. In prophecies the House of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) are listed along with Judah. Ephraim and Manasseh were the major tribes and had the most members. Great leaders like Joshua belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. The Northern Kingdom was called Ephraim as the Southern Kingdom was called Judah. Ephraim is supposed to fight against and then unite with Judah. So where are their records? We have some remnants of their records in the Book of Chronicles. Before they were taken away to what is now Central Asia (Afghanistan, UZBEKISTAN, and Turkmenistan) by the Assyrians, they were given a chance by King Hezekiah of the Southern Kingdom to come to Jerusalem to worship in the temple
