Hello relaxation!

J had some stuff going on, and I didn't like to talk about it 'cause I didn't want to jinx it. But now it's over!! It was a big ass law suit that, worst case scenario, could have made him lose everything. It has been going on long before I'd met him but it became clear not long into our courtship that he was feeling pretty low because of it. I always had a pretty good feeling about the outcome, I always thought:

1. He's a good guy. Sure at times, he fucks things up, has bad judgment, he has a bad temper but he helps people out whenever he can, he's not greedy and he has pretty high morals. He's good and I love him.

2. I'm a lucky girl. I just couldn't believe that after all these years struggling and fighting with B, and thinking I couldn't have kids for all this time, I (unbeknownst to us both) get pregnant by someone I fell in love with so fast. I believe too much in life and am too positive to think I could be sooo happy after all this time and have the rug pulled out from under me so fast. (this is a bit egocentric, I KNOW)

Of course, there will be other clouds coming up, fuckin up my view. But for now things are good, and I'm in the best place in my life to be almost 8 months pregnant.

How do the Englishmen do this?

I ate too many sausages for breakfast and now I'm a bit nauseous. Ugh. I thought I could handle more food while pregnant but let me tell you it's a bit disappointing, the quantities I can ingest.


4,5 months off..whoa.

Maternity leave has only just begun and let me tell you, we're becoming fast friends:-)
I had my last day Thurday, with some nice presents from work and lots of hugs and kisses. I was a bit worried that I'd be bored out of my mind for 4,5 months and that I'd miss my job and co-workers too much. And this weekend I was a bit melancholic I must admit. But right now, I'm starting to get the hang of it and I love it! I used to do this all the time when I was in uni but somehow these past 3 years of working full time has brainwashed me into thinking life without work is no life at all. Turns out there is life after all!!! And I love it! J went to a meeting with his bro after dinner. So I ironed and did some other chores and then I fell asleep on the couch. When I woke up at 1am I thought to myself 'Crappy, I have to get in bed, it's waaaay too late to be up on a week day!' And then I went 'Wait a minute... I'm on leave, I can do whatever the hell I want!' So now I'm sitting here, blogging and surfin the net looking to score a deal on some shoes or whatever.

Isn't life grand?

This is me. 32-year old, mother of 1 and living in Europe. Going through life with one hell of a man, lots of love for my family and a pretty tight circle of mismatched friends. Very self-confident even though I don't know what the fuck I'm doing! (more)
