I have said before and I will repeat, I do not use LJ all that much. You can find so much more out about me on myspace.

It's been almost a year since my last post. Since then my life has "become". I no longer feel like a college kid (mainly because I graduated) and I feel like I am getting in with life. I still revert back to the drunken-hoopla days of college yore, but mainly I remain an adult. (You have to revert sometimes to remember why you never drink nowadays.)

These days I am staying home (Canonsburg Pa) and taking care of my son who just turned 4 months old. He was born September 17th, 2007. We named him Richard Desmond Robb. I try to scavenge work when and where I can so suppliment Cory's income, but mostly I am just Mommy. The pictures below are linked to my myspace photo album!


In other news, I got married January 16th. I am now Melissa Lee Robb, and I couldn't be more delighted nor could I have found a better partner. I don't have any pictures yet, but I will post them as soon as I get them. It was a nice wedding. If you want to read about it you can go to MY BLOG...on myspace.

Below are some pictures of my family. They are from a about three months ago, but Cory looks the same and I got a haircut!

I think my doctor has anger managemnet problems and low self-esteem. While at Family Medicine for our April apointment, I informed our doctor that we would be moving and needing to change hospitals because of such. My doctor's comment was "Oh, I see, I do all the work and someone else gets to deliver the baby. Is that how it is?" Taken aback, as any reasonable person would have been getting a comment like this from a medical professional in charge of the health of your unborn child, I had no response except, "yes". I am not sure if he was joking entirely or if it was a half-hearted attempt at a joke to disguise true feelings of patient abondonment. I like this doctor and I feel bad leaving...after all, how often can you say that the Mickey Mouse Club delivered your first born child? Not often enough, I say!

April will be a hectic month for Cory and me. We have to get his AA and NA stuff in before the end of the month so he can drive again. We have a yardsale to host, packing and moving to complete, he has work, I have finals and a paper due, a baby shower to attend, an ultrasound to get, a marathon to walk in, pay taxes stiil, pay bills at the end of the month, change hospitals and change the WIC and CHIP stuff to PA, find a vet for Luna and I still have to sleep and play on the internet for a few hours a day...all of this, simply in order to survive!!! I mean, I am being a minimalist here! I am cutting corners! I sacrificed seeing J-Lo perform on American Idol last night so I could...so I could take a nap! A nap that was necessary to keep mankind alive and prosperous! It is a hard job being a uterus...

Aisde from the hecticness that is my last month in Morgantown, not much else is new. I am going to get a pedicure today. Cory gave me a gift certificate to the spa sometime in January as a gift. Let me tell you the story! This story represents what often hapens to me. We made an appointment yesterday for each of us to get a massage and for me to get my brows waxed and him to get a pedicure. We arrived at the spa only to find out that I can't get a massage without a doctor's note...like I can't tell if I am in pain or if something is wrong with me. What ever happened to signing a relese form!?! Anyhow, so I decided to get a pediure then. The woman said sure! Great, problem fixed. Nope. As I am laying on the table getting my brows waxed she bursts through the door and informs me that they were over booked for pedicures that day did I want a facial. No, I do not want a facial. So, I scheduled the apointment for the pedicure for today at 3pm. This always happens to me. There is always a glitch! Oh well, it is my plight in life I suppose.

I had my brows waxed yesterday for the first time. Suprisingly, getting your brows waxed makes you 10% prettier! I am sure of it. I have done scientific testing on this matter! It is true, written in the ancient texts of Atlantis but lost forever in the fire. So, I am now 10% prettier. If I actually combed my hair and put on makeup, I may actually be a MILF...well, I am not a Mom yet, so that would make me a PILF...right?

Whatever, I am out for now, I want some oatmeal and the baby wants a piece of Easter Chocolate!

I am currently 16 weeks, going on 17 weeks, pregnant. A friend took some pictures of me when I was 13 weeks pregnant. They are below. I don't have any recent pictures. I will take some though! We have a doctor's appointment on the 9th and we will be scheduling an ultrasound at that time...I will post those pictures as soon as I get the ultrasound done! Hopefully we will know if it is a girl or a boy at that time!

I have been increasingly bored since I lost my job. 
I was a server at Ruby Tuesday until the ABCC decided to do a sting operation and bust me. The people that were sent in to pose as customers looked to be about 28 but they were not and I did not card and now I am jobless...I think what the governemnt did is quite tasteless, sneaky and in my mind amounts to entrapment, although a judge would think differently. 

I have no idea what to do with myself while Cory is at work. 
I have also become cranky - very cranky. I have been snapping at Cory way too much. I feel kind of worthless and helpless without a way to make money on my own. I can't get a new job yet since I will only be in town for 3 more weeks or so...I just need to breathe and cheer up!

I don't think I can go without working! I just don't have that "housewife" thing in me...I think that gene may be retarded or missing all together. I spent the past two days cleaning out the office and boxing things up to move. I decided to have a yard sale of sorts on April 20th. In celebration of this I have been making that DIY show my own by making a keep pile, a sell pile, and a toss pile. Well, actually, I have been putting the "toss pile" in the garbage and the "keep pile" in boxes for moving and the "sell pile" now fills the right side of my hallway. My preggo ass can hardly squeeze by all the junk I don't believe I need anymore. It is really amazing how much "stuff" we accumulate without being aware of it! I found papers and other things that I either (a) forgot I had or (b) had no use for over the past year or two!


So, in preparation for moving I am doing this weeding out thing. It is actually quite difficult for me to do yet I feel good about losing the baggage (or at least I keep telling myself I feel good about it). Aside from that, I am not sure what else to do while I am home all alone. Tonight I did dishes and vegetated. 

I watched my drug addicted neighbors tonight...that proved to be some mild entertainment for a few minutes. I actually decided it would be safer, while I watched them, for me to baracade myself and my dog in house. (They are a bit wiley.) They were outside yelling something about "he will give me my money" or something like that and the woman had a tic that was kind of amusing in a disturbing way. She kept jerking her head to the side. So I brought the dog in and locked the door and watched through the window. 

As far as moving, Cory and I are going to be moving to Cannonsburgh (just south of Pittsburgh) into a cute little two bedroom house. It will be perfect for us, the dog and the baby. I am excited! The move will take place by the end of April and Cory will follow me up there two weeks later. He wants to work a few more weeks so he can do the graduation weekend thing and make some money. 

That pretty much sums up what has been going on over the past few weeks!

Yes...yes...yes...I know it has been a long time since I have posted anything on here...mainly this is because I do not think anyone reads this blog of mine. I have been posting a lot on myspace...

Now don't go getting all jealous, LJ has a place in my heart...


Just wanted to update the masses on here I guess...

I am pregnant...a litle over 11 weeks to be vaguely exact.

Aside from that, I found this funny video I thought I would share with all of you. Enjoy!

For those of you who know me well enough know that I am a firm believer in the paranormal and in psychics for that matter. I have had a lot of stuff happen to me in the past few weeks that have dramatically shaped my life.

I have recently met a person who I believed in my heart to be my soul mate. I just have a hunch. I have subsequently ended all other relationships. I have also been contemplating a job change as well as questioning when I will be married and what I will be doing with my life.

In my time of significant transition I felt the unyielding urge to contact a friend of mine who is a psychic/tarot reader. I called her and talked for about 20 minutes and this is what she had to say...(in my own summary of the conversation)

I asked my friend if she had any thoughts on when I would meet the person I am going to marry. My friend told me that she believes I have already met him. She said she believes that I have met someone recently and she sees him as my "eternal" which means that she believes that he is my life-mate as well. She said that there is a great sexual energy around me with this person and he is a caring attentive person, opening doors and helping me with my jacket. She said that he likes to hear words and listen. She said that this is something very important to me and my family and that he has these qualities and I will be very happy with him.

She also told me to not dwell on the past because there are some things that happened in the past and if I dwell on them that it will not be healthy. Specifically, she told me that she saw another man around me that recently turned away from me and that I should not dwell on that and that if he tries to contact me or get back together with me I should not get back together with him. (For those of you who know my recent past, you know what this is about and I swear I told her nothing about the situation).

She told me that she sees me changing jobs and working with something medical. She says it will be something that I discover soon and that I will really like it. She also sees a job cange in my future. She told me that I have been putting off some paperwork, something that would need a signature, and I need to get on that. I told her that I was meaning to send out resumes. She told me that was probably what she was feeling as far as paperwork goes and for me to send them out. She told me that I will recieve one job offer that is better than the rest at a place that I really want to work at and I should take that one. She said that this job will not be close to where I am currently living. I then informed her that I would be moving in the next year and it made sense to her then.

She told me to be aware of a brassy person with long dark hair (perhaps a student or something) and for me not to let her take advantage of me and tell me what to do. She said that this person will try and tell me that her way is the best way becauwse she has always been the center of attention her whole life. She said just to be aware and take it in stride.

She also told me to look for an older woman with long reddish brown hair who has two small children, she will be a good friend to me. I should treasure her.

Financailly she told me that she sees no problems in the future and that the person I marry will be having his own business that he starts with a friend. The business will be very successful and money will never be a problem.

She said that two years after I marry I will have children. She said there would be no problems and everything will go smoothly with that. She said that in the future she sees me traveling with my husband and children to Ireland or Scotland.

In general, she said that everything looks really good for me in the future and she almost wanted to tell me something bad but there was nothing!

I know all of you are probably thinking, "Oh, God, she is crazy and stupid", but humor me please...I am enjoying my Saturday night and now my heart and mind have been confirmed. Validity is all that matters in life anyhow...

Many many years ago I placed an ad on Yahoo personals. I never check this thing but in light of the recent shipwreck I will affectionatly call Titanic, and in an effort to make some sense of dating, I happened upon the page. I searched in Morgantown and specified some criteria like...MAN and AGE. Aparently there are some 475 men in Morgantown who are compatible with me! Wow how exciting...do I sound bitter?

I find it interesting that there are so many people out there seeking and no one is finding...hmmm...perhaps I should change my game strategy. Perhaps I should abandon my game strategy...What do you think?!?
