Catching Up!

-I finally decided to post a pic. I don't know how much longer I will get away with wearing my own clothes....bring on the tent-like maternity clothes. Can you tell I'm excited? Also, I can't find long maternity pants anywhere :(
-I am still sick. Yes, still up-chucking. The other night Tyler said "Asian Buffet" and I was gagging. The good thing is, I feel like this baby likes spicy foods...which I LOVE, so I can deal with it. I also feel like I am growing by the second. I feel like I resemble a pumpkin. I had a nightmare one night that my doctor messed up and I was really having twins. I was freaking out, but I think I am good now.
-Tyler's team made it to state...holla.....and I get to go with....double HOLLA. It is up in Coeur De Lane, Idaho. I have always heard that it's way pretty up there, but never had the chance to go when I was up at BYUI. We are staying in Butte, MT the first night and then up there the second.
-I have been substituting almost everyday. My very first day I made some 8th grader cry...BUT it was only because I took her phone away after she tried texting right in front of me....THE NERVE. haha. I believe that I am being punished for the hell I gave some of the subs in Alamo back in the day....Mr. Sullivan, bless his heart. lol. I also caught the tail end of a conversation the other day in which a 6th grade boy was talking about all the girls he's made out with. I couldn't help myself but jump in, so I said..."making out?!?!?!? what are you 10?" To which he replied..."Uh no, I'm 12, thanks." I am strongly thinking about home schooling my kids. haha. I have decided that I prefer subbing at the Elementary. Basically, they don't talk back, they are cute, and they do not attempt to flirt with me like some of the high schoolers :)
-Tyler's high school got shut down last week. Too many kids called in sick, so they called a flu epidemic and shut it down. A lot of kids were sick, but we all know some probably knew if they got so many to call in...then they would have a 5 day weekend. Gotta give them props! Anywho, we headed off to SLC and spent the weekend with his grandma. It was so much fun. For once in our lives, it didn't rain and we were pretty much busy the whole time. Tyler's g-ma is on a mission at the church office building, so we got the VIP treatment and ate lunch with the brethren....ok, I made that last part up. haha.
-I would also like to give a shout out to all you Insurance Companies out there....NOT A FAN! I just spent about 8 weeks fighting with you and then, you finally paid my bill. I feel like I am continuously getting screwed over by you, even though I am paying A LOT for you every month. I almost threw down at the pharmacy today when I went to pick up more meds for the nausea. The lady at the counter tried to tell me that I owed them $15 for 3 pills....even though I paid $15 about 3 weeks ago for 12 pills. Of course, I almost lost it. I told her "you either give me 12 pills for $15, or divide the cost for 3 pills." She looks at me and in her little condescending voice says "Look, your insurance company only allows you to have 15 pills total per month." I suppose they think that women will get addicted to zofran...whatev! I swear, it took everything in me to not reach behind the counter and pummel her....(slightly emotional). Anywho, I ended up not backing down and they divided the cost for the 3 pills. People it's only $15, but it's the principle and I am sick of getting screwed over by insurance companies while my taxes are paying for other people to have their 25 kids!
-On a lighter note, Tyler's sister, her husband and son are coming for Thanksgiving. His g-ma also got permission to come up from the mission. We are soooooooo excited. I have been craving Thanksgiving food since about August, so I cannot wait. Mashed potatoes.....mmm, mmmm, mmmm. Tyler and I are going out to Oklahoma for Christmas. We're so excited. I can't wait to spend the holidays with the Matlocks and eat....I mean, what? haha. Don't worry Devine's...we'll be back for the traditional New Years Eve PARTTTTAY! Bring on the karaoke and risk. Here's hoping for no punches being thrown this year!!!!


  1. You look so cute! Good for you for standing up to the pharmacist...If it were me I'd probably have noticed the preg belly and handed the pills over for free! Never mess with a preggo....EVER!

  2. Gertude, you are just the cutest. I wish I could see your cute face. Love the update.

    I think of you every time I hear Beyonce.

  3. Hey Trudie! You look amazing! Do you know if you're having a boy or a girl? Keep us posted!

  4. You. Are. HILARIOUS!!!! i'm cracking up, you have the funniest stories and way of telling them!!! you look freakin awesome (you tall gorgeous girls have it all.... no fair!) hang in there... it only gets worse before it gets better (how's that for encouragement?)

  5. Trudi you look terrific! Go you, preggers suits you. It's always to take an unexpected trip out of town. Glad you had fun with Tyler's grandma. Insurance Companies are in that business to steal peoples money and try and get away with it. Don't let them away with it. Can't wait to find out what the spicy little nugget is. Luv ya tender.

  6. Love the pregnant pic - you totally rock the belly!
