My sister Katy just won 3rd place in a writing contest...with an essay about zombies. It's really funny--you can read it here.
Katy is probably the reason I'm so into zombie movies in the first place. I can really relate to what she says in her essay.
Kyle's life coaching website is up and running! I am very excited about this. The link is in my sidebar, and right here.
Turns out that I'm NOT in the second trimester yet. Read the dates wrong. I feel like a chump. But it starts on TUESDAY. So, you know, I have another chance of feeling miraculously better starting then. I'm praying for it. Although it has been kinda fun to get thicker while losing weight at the same time. I've lost about 10 pounds but you definitely can't tell. I'm excited to start looking pregnant. Right now I just look kind of fat.
Oh hey, you know the whole Rh negative thing? And how if my blood type is negative, I have to get special shots because if Morgi's blood type is positive my body will start attacking it? Well I AM negative--I'm O-, which I think is really cool because I can give ALL OF YOU blood if you need it. I can only accept from other O- people though. Mostly I just feel special because it's somewhat rare. Turns out most of the rest of my family is O- too. Anyways, Kyle is A-, which is great because that means there's no way Morgi can have positive blood, so there's no problem. BUT the doctor said I have to show them documented proof of Kyle's blood type, or I still have to get the shots. From what we can tell, it'll cost at least $65 to get Kyle's blood typed. So. I can just get the shots for free (it's covered on our insurance) or fork over the money. Does anyone know any great ways to get that done cheaper? Or are the shots totally no big deal and I should just do it and save money? That seems so lame (and will it do anything weird to me/Morgi if it's unnecessary medicine?). But shots don't bug me (as long as they're just in my arm!) so...it's tempting. Because we're poor.
I forgot to mention that about a month ago our ward was divided/combined. SO we're in a totally new ward! Which means we got out of our Cub Scout calling! Which means that I can now tell you how much we hated it! Which means we'll probably get it again because I just said that.
