I haven’t blogged about a life in day for quite a while, and since I’m staying at home waiting for Liz’s big arrival… i thought recording one of these last days of a family of 4 (counting my mom).
I wake up at 6:15am. It wasn’t a good night sleep because Tony was snoring since 2am and I was awake until 5 or so, but it was fine. I didn’t anything planned for the day so it didn’t bother me.
I took a big glass of warm water, and then morning capucchino with a small bowl of Tj’s high fiber cereal.
7am: I do 45 min ellipticals while watching House. Then followed by 10 min of arm work.
then I go upstairs. Sofia was up already, giving a hard time to grandma to brush her teeth
I asked mom to leave and let her to do it by herself, which she’s totally capable of.
8:15am: I had a homemade waffle with LC + 1 egg + 1 egg white
way to the daycare
then I w went to the doctor because I had infection in my finger… eh… painful and disgusting
we stopped by Walmart to pick up some mason jars. Once at home, I made a tea and had a gigantic orange. Navel orange is the best!!! The larger, the merrier! 🙂
12:30pm… time to prepare lunch. We’ve been buying shrimp with heads and I saved the heads to make a yummy porridge.
final product: shrimp head porridge made with oatmeal and napa cabbage! I love it so much!!!
dessert was a decaf capucchino and two chocolates
around 3pm, I had a small snack. Roasted kabocha + protein powder. It was just ok..
after I was done doing things in the computer. I lie on the coach for some reading and took a cat nap. I’m re-reading Lots of Candles, plenty of Cake. Really liked the chapter on relationships and girlfriends.
5pm: I walked on the treadmill for an hour. I’ve started taking long walks (4-5 miles) outdoor to try to trigger labor, so far nothing happened but I think it helped to prepare my body for the labor. Yesterday it was chilly and sunny outside, and the urge to pee all the time made outdoor walking more uncomfortable, so I decided to stay home.
when I was done, dinner was ready and Sofia was back from daycare. We had winter melon soup and a chinese cucumber salad.
Tony spent few minutes with his “toy’s”, he’s trying to grow a garden at backyard.
while I prepared my dessert: kabocha! It’s a must!
Sofia took a walk with grandma around the neighbor and came to make me company.. such a sweet girl.
I felt few mild contractions here and there…. so I decided to make oatmeal just in case we need to rush to the hospital later at night.
8pm: time for bath. Sofia took a shower and was ready to get dressed.
I read Buenas noches Luna to her, and she read I’m a big sister to me.
we sing few songs on the bed together, gave each other tons of kisses and hugs and called it a night.
Then Tony gave me a massage, we cuddle a bit to see if contractions continued. Nothing happened. 😦 I was feeling sleepy around 10pm, so I turn the light off. 🙂
It was a laid back day, typical as of life lately. I know it will get busier when Liz arrives, so I’m totally enjoying every minute of it.
