1. Ya like the title?
2. We are moving on April 19th, it's official. I'm looking for apartments online in VA but that's no fun because I have NO idea if they are okay or not. Oh well, we'll only be there for 6 months anyway so if I TOTALLY screw up then it won't last long.
3. Everyone is sick. Well, not everyone. Miah, Kora and I all have colds but I think they are the short lived kind because it's not TOO bad. I was worried on Sunday when Miah and Kora popped up with fevers, then I got it Sunday night. Yesterday was mostly gunk in the nose and coughing. No more fevers. I'm hoping it will be gone soon.
4. I'm getting my haircut today but calm down calm down...don't expect anything exciting. I'm just getting it trimmed and having new layers added that have grown out since last time. I think it's been about 8 months since my last cut. I always wait SO LONG in between cuts because I put myself last on the family priority list. As ridiculous as it sounds...I'm REALLY looking forward to having someone wash my hair. Ahhh....just that small piece of pampering sounds SO good right now. You know when they massage the scalp and give you tingles....ahhhhh...I'm pathetic, I know.
5. Speaking of pampering, I did the party last weekend as a favor to a friend who is a massage therapist as a trade-off for two massages, one for me and one for Austin. I can't WAIT for my massage. I'm going to try to get it really soon so I can still lay on my tummy because I want to fully enjoy every moment of it!
6. Last night we made this delicious dinner called Shabu Shabu. It was Austin's idea and he got it from his cousin Jackie who made it for him on Sunday evening when he helped her move some things. What you do is go to the Chinese supermarket, buy some thinly sliced Ribeye. It's REALLY thin, like bacon thin or even thinner and it's SO cheap. One pound is less than 4 bucks! Also buy some bean sprouts, cabbagy-lettuce stuff, mushrooms, green onions, and baby carrots and place all these things in separate bowls. You get a huge pot and fill it with water and bring to a good boil. At this point you can either leave the pot on the stove so it continues to boil, or move it to the kitchen table with an electric burner underneath so it continues to boil. Then the fun starts. The kids loved this...You pick some of each item, veggies and meats and place them in the boiling water until it cooks them to your desired tenderness. Remove your portion and place on your plate with some yummy rice. Use a citrus soy sauce as a dip and dip each bite of yum into your sauce with some rice and enjoy!!!! It's so good. It reminds me of Pho, but without the noodles and it's not in the liquid when you eat it. Tell me how it goes if you try it. It's hardly any prep time, just boil water and chop up the lettuce and green onions.
7. I'm getting closer to accepting the fact that this may be my last pregnancy ever. This doesn't mean that we won't have more children, we may adopt another, BUT I think being pregnant doesn't agree with me too much and it's not really my favorite thing in the world. I know there are many people out there who cannot have children and will hate me for saying these things, but we're all different so let me speak my peace. I LOVE knowing that I have a baby inside of me, every time I feel it move I just want to freeze time and keep feeling that feeling. The whole idea of how mothers are blessed to able to carry their children I am SO thankful for. The thing is, WHILE I'm pregnant everything else about me goes horribly wrong. I'm sorry, I know I sound ungrateful but I'm not, I'm just worn out.
8. It's already 12, I gotta go get ready for the day. Stuff to do people to see...not really.
9. Oh wait, one thing. I have to tell you how stupid I am. I just spell checked and the word tenderness was incorrect. Wanna know how I ignorantly spelled it? "Tendernous" What the crap? Am I un-educated of what? My face turned red and no one was even here for me to be embarrassed in front of. Had to share...
