Lately

Lately..

-life has been crazy busy yet uneventful. M got a new job so his hours have been a bit long.. and his absence make us seem incomplete.. plus it makes him more tired and and give this pregnant woman no time to relax. So I snuck in a morning massage after dropping D off at school. And the thing I realized, I can not shut off my brain. The whole hour I tried to empty my mind and stop thinking but I couldn't, then I started to think about how I couldn't stop thinking! I this a girl thing or an A type personality crazy person thing?


-my dishwasher has been broken for over a month now.. and my wonderfully incompetent tech first ordered the wrong part and now they say the part aren't available.. at all! Guess we have to buy a new one.. but the space under our counter is smaller than average so that limits our choices.. :( dish washing is not good for my back.

-i have successfully and uneventfully (thank god) made it to my third trimester.. wohoo.. but also scary.. just three months to go before s/he arrives and turns our worlds upside down and inside out.. in a good way..


-D is growing so fast and talking so much. He wants to do everything by himself which sadly means he's already ceasing to be my little baby.. but then he rushes over to us and demands 'huggy time' and there he is again... my baby!


-a few Monday's ago M was working from home so we dropped D off at school and went out for a breakfast date.. it was nice to squeeze in some us time.

-i have been making Halloween costumes. For a person who can barely hem pants, that is huge. I am not doing anything crazy... just a few simple accessories to create a family costume. Mother Nature and freak storms have caused us to miss two Halloween's in a row so we are looking forward to celebrating this one.

Dish washer part...old repair shops, junk yard or recycle center might have an old washer with the part. Sometimes parts can be found on eBay and the weirdest places.
For back...vinyl floor pads are great in front of the sink, doing dishes or not. They can be pricey, but worth it.
I hope you do get your rest.

Busy and uneventful are good. :). Can't wait to see the Halloween costumes. Your baby is getting so big. He's just darling.

To The River said...

I think a custume of a pumpkin would be adequate;-) I m just teasing u, I m glad that pregnancy is going well:) xx

Unknown said...

Those are the cutest socks! Hope you can get a new dishwasher and some rest soon!

Erika Lee @ A Tiny Rocket said...

i love those socks :) and those pancakes look incredibly yummy.

Yah for halloween costumes- can't wait to see the pics.

Jules said...

Gah, I know all about broken dishwashers. We finally managed to fix ours after 2 months... turns out a whole host of ants had crawled into the switch resulting in a disconnection. Who would've thought!

Glad the pregnancy is going well! Take care! :)

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks for the tip on the vinyl floor pads.. will look into those.. I was thinking something memory foam.

Hena Tayeb said...

We had a costume trial run this weekend at our towns parade.. he looked so cute.. can't wait to share.

Hena Tayeb said...

lol.. we're going more of a disney direction this year.. funny the pumpkin idea never occurred to me.. would have been easy and perfect.

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks.. i have a thing about socks.

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks.
we are trying to find a new breakfast place.. i think it will be impossible to replace our old breakfast place.. the food there was other worldly

Hena Tayeb said...

Yikes.. that sounds nightmarish.

Jennifer Hays said...

I'm glad your pregnancy is going well. I'm sorry some other things have been stressful but it will be okay. I can't wait to see the costumes!

Diana said...

Great!

Anonymous said...

I have a dishwasher as well and my husband hates it, i LOVE IT, couldnt live without it lol, when it breaks either I try to fix it myself or call a tech to replace it lol. YAY for the third trimester!

Jennie and Husband said...

darling socks!
ps. that looks sooo yummy!

Laura Jones said...

sounds like a lot's been going on! and luckily there's nice things to balance out the not-so-nice:-) x

lime said...

ah the racing mind....it's a female thing enhanced by the mom thing and kicked into overdrive by pregnancy. that's my theory.

glad there was some time in there for sweet little cuddles and a breakfast date though. those are the things that help settle the mind. :)

Anvilcloud said...

Blanking your mind is difficult for anyone. I don't think it's just a female of type A thing but a human thing.

rooth said...

Doesn't time just fly by? Your little one is a big boy now!

Unknown said...

your son is the cutest, and the pancakes look scrumptious!

Congrats on getting to trimester #3 - so exciting!

Loulou said...

That's a drag about the dishwasher. We were without one for about a year because ours broke and we knew we really needed a kitchen reno but weren't quite ready for it yet, so went without a dishwasher. Not fun at all, and I can imagine really not fun when you're in your third trimester of pregnancy. So I hope you find a solution quickly! So exciting about your baby coming so soon.

Elsha said...

Dishwasher problems are the worst!! We haven't had one in forever, but once we do I'll never want to go without again!!

Z@KickingKilos said...

D is looking very cute :))

Hena Tayeb said...

I can't wait to share them!

Hena Tayeb said...

why does your husband hate it?

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks... it was

Hena Tayeb said...

a little balance is nice.

Hena Tayeb said...

you can never go wrong with cuddles and date nights or mornings.

Hena Tayeb said...

true.. though I wish it would just stop running sometime.. a few moments of peace.

Hena Tayeb said...

ye he is.. and it still surprises me.

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks :)

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks.

Hena Tayeb said...

Hena Tayeb said...

thanks.. hopefully getting ready to make a purchase soon.

Hena Tayeb said...

We didn't use ours a lot when it was just the two of us.. but with D.. it's one errand I rather not waste my time doing..

Hena Tayeb said...

I think we're all prone to overloading our brains too much and not knowing how to switch it off! And your little boy is growing so fast, I think no matter how much he grows he'll always need his mummy for something :o) and congrats on the 3rd trimester! Almost there

Have a great weekend,
