Back to virtual reality

After five days, our telco finally fixed the problem with our phone and Internet, hurray. Apparently the bad weather had caused some major problems with our area and our phone line died on Saturday; but that wasn’t so bad because we still had Internet. Then on Monday a service guy did some tinkering outside, and…

Stop right there

I am going to stop breastfeeding. It might sound selfish but I need to feel like myself again and not like a milk truck all the time. It’s depressing enough that Abby won’t breastfeed straight from the boob, so to have to spend valuable ‘free’ time expressing into a bottle, on top of the time…

Yay for Green Day

Apart from the ridiculously loud volume level, which is the norm for all concerts, the Green Day concert was everything I hoped it would be. I missed seeing them back in 1996 but 13 years and a baby later I finally got to experience them live and they were awesome! It was great to hear…

Pregnant Fight Club

First rule of Pregnant Fight Club – you have to be pregnant. Second rule of Pregnant Fight Club – no punching the belly. Third rule of Pregnant Fight Club – no punching at all. Actually, no hurting at all. Pregnant Fight Club doesn’t really work does it…? Let’s just bake cupcakes – I could do…

Baby Update at 22 Weeks

Just as I thought everything was going swimmingly, I develop pregnancy-related carpal tunnel syndrome. It really sucks because my right hand is always tingly, and I can’t do things that require gripping for long – like brushing teeth, or writing, or even opening jars. My right arm aches often too, including the elbow and shoulder.…

A Nice Surprise

The door bell rung this morning and Fez raced down the hallway to see who it was. When I opened the door I was greeted by a courier man. He had a package for me – a box of baby stuff judging by the labelling. I didn’t sign up for any other freebies I wasn’t…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I haven’t posted a food entry for a while. This is probably due to the fact that most of my food entries have been cocktail recipes, and being winter and pregnant I haven’t thought about any of these lately. (Actually, I think about cocktails a lot! Will have to invent some nonalcoholic ones at some…

Life is for enjoying

I woke up today with the news that Farah Fawcet had died of anal cancer. Then later on, I heard that Michael Jackson passed away after having a cardiac arrest. It hits home how fragile life is. One day you’re walking around doing what you do, then the next you are no more. But that’s…
