A little bit of everything

Sharing is caring!


  • I was out rollerblading today and for once my hubby came with me. He usually runs or bikes while I Rollerblade, but that’s never fun, because I can’t go at the speeds I want. So i was all happy and showing off my  awesome blading skills, doing figure eights when suddenly my rollerblades wavered…and BAM! I went flying onto the pavement. All those days of wearing knee and wrist and elow guards when i was first starting to rollerblade and not a single fall. And as I get confident enough, it has to shutter my spirit, damn it! My fault for trying to show off. But now my right knee is badly skinned, so is my right hand and wrist. I also really bruised my wrist bone on my left hand. Fun fun fun! I think I might have been in a little bit of a shock, because after we bandaged me up, I insisted we go back out because “I didn’t get my rollerblading done” hahaha
  • We’re officially a month from trying to conceive.
  • I met a neighbor who’s preggo right now. Our neighborhood is so quiet that sometimes you forget anyone lives here. I’ve seen this adorable looking couple walk by our street a couple of times with the girl being very pregnant,we always wave to each other…. I thought about introducing myself, but never really had a chance. So a few days ago, as they were passing by, I said hi and told them we’ll be pregnant soon, too, hopefully. We spent a lot time chatting. We are amazingly alike. It’ll be nice having another new mom right here on my street.
  • I’ve been sort of missing  from both my blogs, because it’s tax time and with us being the lousy procrastinators as we are, I am forced to catch up with all the inputting for the year for 2 different business and personal returns. Let me tell you that’s a lot of work
  • I decided to push myself harder on the exercise front, thanks to the inspiration that adorable 7x7xmommy gave me. Anyone who looks like that at 29 weeks deserves my respect. I want my pregnant belly to have the shape of a uterus and not a beach ball. My abs have always been very strong ( genetics?) but it won’t hurt to pump them up a bit before I get pregnant. Plus I resolved to do more stretching and flexibility exercises which will help too.
  • I discovered that sleep is everything for me ( ironic, right? Just as I am getting ready to put myself in a position of restless sleep and then no sleep at all). I have been feeling crappy and not up to my usual work outs lately, and it turns out I wasn’t getting enough sleep. I have been setting the alarm for 8 am, and trying to go to bed at 9, but really making it by 11 at the earliest, but mostly by 1. The last two days I’ve let myself sleep  in till 10 and, my, what a difference it makes. I am full of energy, happy, ready to work out and work.
  • Reading more about babies made me realize that I need to get some things done before I don’t have time: some video editing, major cleanings, painting ( our house has been  half painted for two years now)
  • I want to start a weekly pregnancy/motherhood question feature here just for myself. I have so many mom readers and blogger friends, it seems silly not to use their wisdom to my advantage. Weekly I will be posting a question that bothers me or that I want to hear your opinion/experience on. It’ll have something to do with pregnancy/motherhood and I would REALLY appreciate it if you all could participate and give me your opinions.

    It’ll be nice to have a new mommy friend nearby and I’m sorry your knees are skinned. That happened to me way too long ago. Did you have a question today?

      You can’t answer my questions anyways 🙂 But I’m sure you’ll lurking looking for answers 🙂 It’s interesting to hear other people’s experiences with the whole baby process.

      Hey, I’m really tall too, 5’11” 🙂 I sort of got over my fear eventually. I am pretty balanced for my height. Rollerblading just gives me such a sense of freedom!
      And yay, glad you’re excited about questions. I’ll do first on Monday, i think.
