I haven't really had anything inspiring or interesting to write about. I don't want everything to be pregnancy/baby orientated but it's a little hard when that's all that is on my mind at the moment ha-ha.
Lately it's just been work, sleep, studying, exams at our house (oh and lots of walks even if they make me feel terrible). I managed to do a chunk of my to-do list but was interrupted by the dog deciding that the couch was the perfect thing to pee all over. Hello preparation for motherhood! He obviously didn't appreciate being forced to stay inside after I washed him but he's white and I didn't want him getting stuck into the dirt!
So this will be the last weekend that my niece and nephew will be living in Perth :( It's hard to believe and I'm getting sad but I know it's hardest for both the grandmas involved. It's great news for my brother-in-law he'll have an amazing job and a crazily insane income but he deserves it and has worked damn hard to get to where he is. I just wish that they could stay in Perth a little longer it would have been nice for Pecan to have cousins so close in age. Especially because the chances of my little sister or my little sister-in-law reproducing anytime soon are slim to nil! But that's the way life works and they want to wind up living in New York one day (I really hope they visit first because I LOVED it there but it didn't scream family friendly) so we always new the day was coming where they'd say farewell to Perth. At least they'll be flying back over a lot so that will be good.
The one major downside of this pregnancy has been that my cooking drive has completely died. Thankfully I started teaching Hubs how to cook before this happened and he's been a life-saver cooking dinner even after slugging it out at an exam. Tonight's menu is red curry chicken, my first attempt at eating chicken after being so grossed out by it but I love red curry so hopefully that counteracts it!
I also think I've found an awesome vintage change table (oh how I love www.gumtree.com.au!). Hubs is going to look at it tomorrow and if it's decent we'll grab it $50...a definite bargain, much cheaper than what we've been looking at (we want something solid that's a cupboard/chest of draws and this fits the bill). I wish we had lots of money to splurge on crazy things but in some odd way it's nice doing everything on the cheap and besides the big ticket items have already been offered by the new grandparents (or an amazing family friend who is donating a brand new top of the range car seat and a second hand pram - BRILLIANT!). I love how babies just bring out the generosity in people, I'm always on the giving end so it's cool to be experiencing the receiving, Pecan is going to be very very spoilt!
