Hey gang, it’s Friday! 😀
It’s been a while since posting here. I’ve been reading most of your updates, so let me just say: Calypte CONGRATS on finishing!! Wren, thinking healing thoughts for Mr. Wren – hope he’s doing well after surgery! SnowLeopard – good job with the difficult talk! Miss E, so you got to see Oscar Pistorius in action, I gather? And such a great win for UK! I’m envious! Moose, everything seems to be going well? Cate, I recall you worrying about getting no jobs, so I’m glad for you even if you’re overworked (hope it becomes more balanced, though!) And I hope Madam Ish didn’t get kidnapped by the school board or her quilting group! :)) (And I miss photos of Silvie’s pups 😦 …)
Anyway, it’s been quite eventful over here. We’ve done our more-than-3-week road trip through Northern Europe and decided it’s all very nice but we’d rather live in a warmer, drier climate with not as agressive mosquitos, thank you very much! Then we were immediately off to the too-warm Adriatic coast (40 Celsius in the shade) to swim in hot soup – ok, the sea, but it felt like a soup. We went on some weekend trips, fixed some stuff around the appartment (we may have managed to find some handymen who actually come when they say they will!), went out with friends we haven’t seen the whole summer, went to a couple of *fantastic* concerts, and somehow managed to fit in work in between everything else. 😉 I think I am now ready for a boring, cozy, low-activity winter.
Actually, the biggest news is that I’m pregnant. 🙂 I’m still not sure about the whole thing, being decidedly anti-kids until meeting N, who’s very pro-kids and is great with them… But I have warmed up to the idea in these years I’ve been with N. (And, to be honest, since hitting 30 and thinking about the future…) So I try not to worry too much about it. I’m going for the “taking it one day at a time” attitude. I sooo don’t want to think about what’s it going to be like when puberty hits! Or even about giving birth! The whole… physics… of it is just daunting!!
But anyway… I’m trying to spend less time on the computer and become more focused on other things. (Including taking a crash course in babies and baby-rearing, because I have no idea about any of it and I’m already freaking out a little!) So I’m going to fade away a little… But you can always reach me by email. (Which I don’t want to post publicly because google can find it, but you can easily see it if you look at my comments on FTFers “Comments” page – it is the longer version of my nickname, at gmx dot net.) Of course, if any of you come anywhere near Slovenia, I expect you to let me provide a guided tour! 😀
So, have fun and continue being fabulous, all of you! 🙂
