Did I step into a soap opera?

So yesterday was supposed to be an awesome day for the hubby and I and for the most part it was. We spent the day with some good friends - fellow preggos - celebrating a birthday. Joey was doing a tattoo and I was just chilling, hanging out, etc. That night we were heading to an improv for a comedy show. More about that later...

About halfway through the day my sister alerted me to a situation that was occurring out in cyberworld that concerned our family. I won't get into details as I don't want to propagate the drama any further. Suffice it to say that it was highly illegal, based on delusions and potentially damaging all the way around. It basically cemented our feelings on a particular situation and I think we will all be much happier with the drama causers out of our life. I had to go one step further due to my blog - which I love. One of the people involved in all this must either not have a life or be obsessed with me. They have been cyberstalking me for almost a year now. I went ahead and deleted this person from my Facebook,  blocked their ip address and still they have been visiting my site multiple times in a day through a proxy. We deduced that this person must be behind a lot of the misinformation that was swirling out there too. Because I didn't feel it was fair to me or my readers to pull my blog down because of a few psychotic people out there - I took a much bigger step. I have contacted this parties ISP provider, their local authorities, and the proxy service. This turned into a situation where I needed to legally protect myself and my family. I won't let a few crazies take away something I enjoy. If this still continues though I may have to make the blog by invitation only - I hope you understand if I do.

Back to our night - my sister and I hashed it out and decided not to say anything to our parents about everything that was taking place. We didn't want to do anything that would jeopardize our dad's health and land him back in the hospital or God forbid even worse. So then it was off to SAK Comedy Lab for a night of laughs and entertainment. Tickets were only $12 a person and well worth it. They also validate parking so that was only $4 - if there hadn't been a ravenous pregnant woman involved we would have made out on just spending $30 for the night. (Darn it Jellybean - curb your appetite! Momma's on a budget!) The actors were amazing. Jellybean got quite a workout with all the bouncing around our baby boy did in there! Our show was a two for one of sorts as there was a drunk guy in the audience who was kicked out. The actors ended up incorporating reenactments of him into their scenes throughout the show - HYSTERICAL. The best thing is that the entire show is very family friendly. No cursing or overt sexual references. They keep the scum out as they say. Even if you are just going to be vacationing in Orlando - you should go! Joey and I talked about it the whole way home. Seriously one of our best dates ever.

Now on to a drama free Sunday of clearing out the nursery and other chores...if I can ever get sleeping beauty out of bed that is...

All the drama will sort itself out eventually so don't go worrying yourself over it.
Glad you had fun at the club. Hubby and I enjoy going to the local comedy club here. Nick Cannon will be here soon and I am so looking forward to seeing him.

Hi, I found you on ICLW (even though I didn't get around to signing up myself this month). I am due Feb. 4, so we are really really close in our pregnancies! It will be fun to follow along with yours...
