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.

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…

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 wast…
