Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Pregnancy Moment #54259811

In case you thought wearing my underwear sideways ALL DAY was the kicker, just wait for this pregnancy moment. I am getting worried that these are happening more and more frequently. Alicia assures me it only gets worse (she has 4 kids worth of experience) and that baby J is guaranteed to be a genius. I guess her logic is that he is steeling all of my brain power to power his own. Go right ahead, little man! I knew you were a genius anyway.

So here is goes. This morning started out with a trip to the OBGYN (where I talked with about 12 people), then onto work (where I was talked with about 6 people), then home for lunch (where I had a long conversation with a good friend in my front yard), then the post office (where I talked to 3 people), then back to work (where I talked with a guy visiting from another office)....that brings the grand total to 23 people that did not inform me that I was wearing 2 TOTALLY DIFFERENT EARRINGS. I am so embarrassed- they either thought "bless her heart she is so tired with the pregnancy she can't even put the same earrings on" or "Bless her heart, she is so unfashionable she actually thinks a blue long dangle earring matches a short drop pearl earring". 8 of the 23 were men, so that makes me feel better because you know darn well they didn't notice a thing.

I am hoping my big belly was distracting them all and nobody noticed. So if you weren't having a good day...just look at yourself and realize that you actually match and that is something to be proud of!

So funny! When I was about 8 months pregnant I wore 2 different shoes to work one day. The things pregnancy does to us!

Okay, I'm wondering how you talked to 12 people at the OB/GYN, cause I've been there before...

Okay Jenn here is the embarrassing truth about the obgyn- I was in the waiting room talking to the girls next to me (2 people) when I started getting light headed and thought I was going to pass out- so I asked the ladies at the counter if I could lay down (3 people), when the nurse came to get me (1 person) and put me in a room. Then Guedon stopped by to say hello as he whistled down the hall (1 person), then I started feeling better and they took me to the lab (2 people) and back to my room where Kappi saw me (1 person) and then I got my glucose drink from a nurse (1 person) and then I checked out (1 person). 12 PEOPLE... AND NONE OF THEM TOLD ME!!!

Awesome! Love it. Your baby will be a genius, that's the only way to explain it. That's what I told myself when I left my purse in a Costco cart and got in my car to drive away and was chased down by a very honest, determined lady who handed me my purse as she was sweating and panting away. Also, I managed to knock over a giant fountain in the lobby of my old medical spa when I was about 22 weeks along. My boss couldn't yell at me because pregnant, thank goodness. Gotta love pregnancy smarts!
