Remember Us?

>> Tuesday, September 13, 2011

As I wrote this morning on (never home)maker, baby!, I should know better than to disappear for nearly a week with no update while pregnant. To answer some emails/messages we've received: No. Nothing is wrong. And Baby A. didn't come early.

I just haven't felt much like blogging. Our area of NY experienced significant flooding last week.

Thankfully, our home wasn't impacted. But we know so many who have suffered -- and even a few who have lost everything. I've never experienced a natural disaster of this magnitude before. The mood has been heavy. That's for sure.

Related: Cooking hasn't been happening either. We were on a boil water order for several days. We ate off paper plates, drank from plastic cups, and ate basic foods. Without a dishwasher, it was like camping -- difficult to adequately sanitize/etc. The order was lifted yesterday.

Here's a smoothie I whipped up and poured before I realized I'd be able to actually wash a fancier glass. It doesn't look like much, but it's delicious.


Just blend together . . .
  • 1/3 cup yogurt, unflavored
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (uncooked)

Now that I'm in my third trimester, I'm feeling tired. So exhausted, in fact, that when I went to add my apple cider to the mix . . . I spilled the entire half cup all over myself. Sigh!


Happy 1st birthday to Sammy!

Aaaaaaaand we continued work on our first floor. Most important, Stephen finished painting.

I feel like it doesn't look as great in photos as it does in person. We're loving it. And I think all we need are different curtains (I'm thinking yellow panels -- anyone have other suggestions?), and we'll call this makeover OVER.

That's it for now. Just wanted to give y'all an update. We'll resume regular posting soon. Especially now that we can cook again! Now on to our latest obsession: Mad Men!
