Gotta Love New Things

We have been needing a new fridge for some time now... and finally we found what we were looking for. 

We have gone from this:
To this:

From this: {Was 100 chocka block full - couldn't even fit the drinks in}

To this: {looks like we need to go food shopping lol}

With this cool humidity drawer for my vegies:

And this freezer {with an automatic ice make to keep Ian happy}

I am so totally in LOVE with the new fridge, and am so happy we found exactly what we were looking for.

Tupperware Must Go!

I have a Tupperware Cupboard - yes, a whole cupboard just for Tupperware... is that so wrong???

What about when the cupboard looks like this:
What about when the cupboard looks like that, AND there is Tupperware still in boxes from the house move 6mths ago...??

And as I try and sort this house out before baby arrives {nesting right??} I am seeing some sense... I have far too much Tupperware {among other things, but hey - one thing at a time right...?}  So... I'm selling it all off - well, not quite all, but heaps of it... call me insane, mad, crazy, loopy, whatever... I have too much... SO OUT IT GOES

1 month to go

WOW hasn't the last 8mths gone fast...? I only have 1 month to go till my EDD of March 12th 2011... Whats the best this month will d...r...a...g :)

I was meant to be working till the 11th {cause I'm CRAZY like that}, but lately I've been so tired that I am looking at finishing work in 2 weeks.

This weekend I will finally go through all my baby clothes and pull out, wash, fold, and put away in drawers, all the gender neutrel NB items...

And... If I get time this weekend, I will set the bassinet up also...

the leather for my Pounamu {greenstone} broke last night :(  I need to replace it ASAP as I feel soooo naked without it... but I also don't feel whole anymore without it either... I wore it in my pocket all day today, just so it was close to me at all times... but I feel like I may loose it if I keep that up...

My Pounamu is extremely precious to me... you see, my dad died 4 years ago, and he gave me my Pounamu many years ago... he found a real greenstone on a beach in the South Island about 10yrs ago, and he asked the local elders if he could keep it, had it blessed, then had it carved into necklaces for me, my brother, my half sister and Paris, then had each necklace individually blessed again...

I lost my Pounamu a 4 1/2 yrs ago - I took it off for a night out when I wanted to wear a different necklace, popped it on my dressing table and never saw it again... untill the day my dad died... that morning I woke up as usual, and while hunting through my t-shirt draw to find something to wear, I found my Pounamu... I was soooo happy, I put it on instantly... 3 hrs later, I received the phone that no daughter ever wants to recieve.. my dad had suffered a fatal Cardiac Arrest...

Anyway - long story short, I NEED to be wearing my Pounamu before I go into labour... I have to have my dad with me during my labour and delivery...

Energy - where are you??

I am drained... I have no energy left for anything at the moment... the heat and humidity are certainly NOT helping... right now I'm sitting here in my lounge and it's 26oC with 73% humidity - CRAZY!!

I'm sure my lacking energy levels are also due to something else - maybe low iron stores or something... although I do take iron tablets... I get dizzy a fair bit too, and was actually sent home from work yesterday due to being dizzy and having a low blood pressure...

Fingers crossed I start to perk up a bit in the coming days/weeks...

Feeling a bit down...

I am 35 weeks tomorrow... eeekkk thats 5 weeks to go...

I should be estatic... but instead I'm stressed and not feeling so good...  The cost of living has risen so much in recent times, that we have been really scraping through the last few weeks... I still need to purchase a double buggy and thanks to having no money, have missed out on the following two awesome ones tonight...

buggy #1 and buggy #2

I have yet to set up the bassinet, or wash any of the linen for it... I haven't been through any clothes to sort out unisex newborn items... I am completely lacking in motivation...

is this normal???
