Do I look fat in these pants?

Screeching tires are the most annoying sound in the world. Guess what Grand Tourismo 4 sounds like? Constant revving engines and screeching tires. Ugh. Last night when we got home, he went straight to the Playstation. Then it was Grand Tourismo until it was time for my soapie. After that he insisted that there was nothing worth watching on TV, but there was.  I’m not phased right now. This will be a small sacrifice! *rubs hands together*. When my Sims 2 arrives…which it will probably only do at the end of next week or the week after, I’ll be hogging the Playstation! Then I’ll turn around and say ‘What about all those nights you got to play Grand Tourismo?’ he he he. Besides, I’m happy that he is home and out of mischief 🙂

 

I climbed on the scale last night, expecting not to see much change (as my weight hasn’t changed too much in the last 3 months) and WHAM! Hello extra 3 kilos. Where the fork did you come from? Oh. Maybe all the chocolate I’ve been eating. It’s starting to catch up. Forkitall. Look, I’m not worried about gaining weight while I’m pregnant, really. I know I’m supposed to gain weight. I accept that. I just don’t want to be one of those women who gains 40kg while pregnant and loses 10 when the baby comes out. Fat is like forever bond on my body. Once it’s there I don’t really get rid of it. My life so far is a testament to that. I need to remember that pregnancy is not a license to eat whatever I want. I’m going to have to deal with the consequences after my baby is here.  I sound like I’m being very clever about this, don’t I? You may be saying ‘She’s thinking straight’, but after I came to this realization last night (also after having stepped on the scale) I had some Aero. Nom nom nom. Rudi wants us to go back on our healthy eating plan and I don’t object to that. I think we should go back on it. Plenty of fruit and vegetables and mostly white meat and fish. It’s a healthy, balanced eating plan which will be good for Babyice and myself. I just don’t know when we’ll get around to starting it. Wenchy was so cute on Twitter last night. I said ‘3kg just *appeared* on the scale. It better be water retention’, she replied ‘Water retention doesn’t wear bibs’ <- She cracks me up!

I’ve ordered Shantaram and Sims 2 Platinum from Kalahari. Delivery can take up to 10 working days. Let’s hope it doesn’t. After mentioning that I ordered Shantaram on Twitter people started saying that they had read it and that it was awesome.

 

The taxis and busses are on strike today again. They always seem to strike on a Wednesday when my housekeeper is supposed to work at my place. It doesn’t really happen that often, but it always happens on my day. So tonight when I get home I’ve got loads of washing to do…and after that…loads of ironing. I don’t do ironing well. I particularly hate trying to iron sleeves. You can’t put the sleeve around the ironing board, so it’s really difficult to not iron creases into them. We’ll most likely have to tumble dry everything as the weather is not great here at the moment, but because we’re stoopid we forget to take the stuff out the tumble dryer while it’s still warm so that the creases will just hang out. Perhaps I’ll do a load, and let it tumble dry while I’m at church then take everything out when I get home and hang/fold it immediately. Sound like a plan. Then towels, undies and pyjamas. Those can dry while we sleep with no worries about creases.

 

I’m working this weekend, but I’ve taken off Monday and Tuesday in lieu of overtime worked…so I’m not too bummed about it. Yes. I know I just came back from leave, but mommy needs her rest!
