Paula Abdul & procrastination

Sorry it's been so long since I have written... so many tests to study for... so little time... but I procrastinate.. I have a paper due tomorrow that I could have written like a MONTH ago, but didn't cause I was super focused on other classes. Gotta play catch up now...

So what else I have I procrastinated about? I have waited to sign up for "those" childbirth classes that they recommend you take. Seems icky... but hey I am a bit immature... yeah and can you believe that I WANT to be a nurse.

This is a rambling blog, no real plot or sense at all here... hubby is so practical, so not like me. I guess that's what makes us a good team, opposites attract, (that was a great song by Paula Abdul : I have always wondered if she was part middle Eastern... the last name sounds a little bit that way...)

Not much else, I guess I will start on my paper, by the way, it's about abortion, how's that for irony, and pregnant lady who is writing about it. I think it should be interesting.

So I am supposed to be organized you say? I am in some areas and not so much in others. With school I am very neat and tidy and have all my papers in order, when I was working, same thing, every thing was catergorized and indexed and all that jazz. But at HOME... well that is a whole different story. Hubby is the one that is neat and organized, I think almost bordering on OCD. He occasionally loses his mind and lets things go for like a few hours, but for the most part he is the glue that holds the house together.

Now being Indian this is supposed to cause me shame, or something, but I don't think it does. I am supposed to cook and clean and fold and iron and do it very well, but I really don't. I can do it, but I just don't because half the time he redoes what I have done. I love my hubby, and if he asked I would do it, but he kicks butt and he does it better than I ever could. So yes it's sad that I don't carry the torch for all women, especially Indian women, but hey I have a clean house, and outside of home everything else is organized.

I was just saying.. hey I am proud that my American (white) husband is so into my culture and embraces it wholly...

In 4.5 months this will all be shot to hell.

Bitchy Blog

Well I warned you... I had a good time out East. It was amazing... I was prepared to fend off the Easterners whom I thought would be really pissy and mean to me, but I think they know that spring will approach and that they will be out of the cold winter hell and everyone that I met on the trip and the random ppl that I asked directions for in NYC (with the exception of a dyed red-headed 50ish woman who wanted to look 30 ish) were so helpful and nice, and they didn't even steal my wallet...

The thing that sucked the MOST about Spring break is that I got pneumonia/bronchitis... But mom was cool and she made me all the good Indian food that was going to make me feel better... and man let me tell was good food.

Also a recommendation... don't get sick when pregnant, it's like having 2 or 3 dieseases at the same time.

For those of you who want to know (and know me) I am registered at Target and So get with it and check it out online.

Ok so maybe it wasn't that bitchy of a blog, but I warn you.. I am prone to mood swings.

Baby O'Mine

So it's most likely a girl... it was being VERY modest and not really showing much at the ultrasound... we got to see all the limbs ( with 10 fingers and 10 toes) and the spine and the bottom, and the head.

Very cute kid.

But most of the evidence is leaning to this little one being a girl, we will have another ultrasound on the 29th, and maybe we can get some more definition in the pics. Will post ultrasound pix when I can... I will try to get online when I am out east, but remember, dial-up is soooo very slow.

Toodles... and have a great St. Patrick's Day!

Many Moons...

Oh crap I just lost what I thought was a very good entry... the fates have decided otherwise and now I get to re-write...

Well essentially I was saying how nice it was to be out of the city life (we're not on a farm). We like to see the stars at night from our backyard. For those of you who don't have one I am sorry. It's so nice to sit out on a breezy night and sip iced tea and just relax. It's still to cold here in Colorado, but I am thinking of the day that I will do that.

Most cities are nice to visit, but I just don't think I want to live in one again. Not that suburbs are great either. I think where we are is an in-between.

Going up to the Big Apple to visit the parental units and extended family. So after this Thursday it will probably be a week before I can blog again, unless I can borrow dad's computer and even then it will be dial-up (blech). But I will come back and tell you all about my spring break.

Also for those of you who want to know. I will be posting the result of the ultrasound this Thursday. Hopefully this kid isn't shy and we will be able to determine if it's a boy, girl, or a cute little alien.. hehe

Also please feel free to comment, if you hate the site or you want to tell me that it stinks you can always tell me and post anonymously. Also if you love it, but are just a shy person you can do that too... I would love to hear back from my worshippers... oops I meant readers...

Warning : Depressing thoughts ahead

So it really sucks when you don't do as well at something as you thought. I hope that's not the way this kid turns out, we have high hopes. But then you see people that are thoughtless, evil, crazy, or just wasting their lives. It makes me shudder sometimes.

All I can do is do the best I can. Protect and love the kid.

What a world we live in now.

175,000 ppl died this year because of a massive underwater earthquake.
2000+ people died at the hand of terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001
and many more countless things we have read and seen on TV, and countless that we haven't even heard about.

I guess I never understood why some people didn't want children. I always thought it was something selfish, but maybe they see the world and the thought of living with all this just is overwhelming when you have to teach the kid about the things that you cannot hide anymore.

Wow.. a little bit heavy...

Not to despair, life is like this, you have good times, and wonderful happy moments, and you have to take that in hand with the bad things, otherwise it really wouldn't be a life.

Gosh I haven't heard that word in a long time, like since the '80s. But I bet that describes me. Yeah well maybe a little. I always liked to read growing up. Anything, it could be a cereal box, or the side of the toothpaste thing, or even the bottom of a box of Kleenex... pretty sad...

Dweebs come in all shapes and sizes.

I like my biochemistry class that I am taking now, have an A so far this semester, that probably makes me a dweeb, but honestly I don't spend much time outside class studying... does this mean that I am a prodigy?

But there are some classes that I can beat my head into the wall studying for (probably not good for the fetus) and yet I don't get it, so maybe I am normal. We'll see.

The hubby is being a dweeb right now, and yet I know he's not a prodigy because he is smelling his odorous socks and killing his small quantity of brain cells.

Whatta man

Yeah ok, this one is about the hubby.

He is doing A LOT around the house. He is finishing a room in the basement (all by himself) and he is also going to work on his boat, and today he even made dinner.

He is definitely a better more patient cook than I am. He has more patience to stand and stir than I do. I usually end up getting distracted and burning food, and then we have to go out... I wonder if this is what is contributing to my weight...

And now for my Spring Break, I get to go and visit my parents up in NJ. I am so excited. Living so far away and only seeing them 2 or 3 times a year is super hard, and he understands that. Plus he gets a week where he doesn't have me "hovering".

He's a good husband, definitely a keeper.
