Now I have no excuse for not writing for the last two weeks...Manjesh today reminded me that I am becoming a lazy bum by writing a comment on my last blog...so here is my update...

Everything is normal...life is at least...we got our new bedroom furniture two weeks ago but I have not loaded it with anything yet...we got the bed, a dresser with mirror, a chest, and a nightstand. All the shelves in the chest and nightstand are empty and two shelves in the dresser is filled with my junk jewelery and some important documents. I managed to do the arduous task of lining all the shelves with contact paper only to see that they are already bubbling out on me...after all I guess what Girish told me about how useless they were are all true...anyways, at least now my bedroom looks like a bedroom.

For the bed we bought a new comforter set...probably the most expensive piece of fabric in our house apart from the pattu (silk) saree's I have...the set came with pillows, pillow covers and a beautiful comforter...Now the problem is, I have three rows of pillows...one HUGE row, one Medium size row, and finally the small throw pillows...and none of these pillows are comfortable for both me and Giri...Every night we go through the process of arranging the pillows on the ground and using our usual pillows and in the mornings organizing the pillows back to make the bed look nice...I wonder why some people go through the trouble and I am really interested to see how long Giri and I are going to do this too...

Wondering why we bought bedroom furniture for us and nothing for the baby? Well my rakhi brother and his wife are giving us their daughter's crib and travel system. So Girish and I decided that if we bought a chest and other storage for the room, we can easily use it for the child now and when it is big use them for ourselves. Plus the baby is going to room with us in its crib (hopefully) so we cannot afford to have too many shelving...and this seemed to be the most logical/practical solution. I would rather do something sensible than stupid and useless.

Baby status: 34 weeks now!!! yay! I have another 5 weeks to go...give or take a week...exciting! I am glad that I still do not have too many pregnancy issues and the only concern is that my baby might be breach...the doc told me today that I can get another ultrasound in two weeks to confirm the position of the baby...pray that it is headside down so that I don't have to go through the turmoil of a C-Section!

I am still partying. I don't think anything is going to stop me (hopefully not...touch wood)! We had Shahid's birthday party on August 18th and then Malcolm's birthday party on August 25th...and I was there till the end on both...although I had to pull Girish out in Shahid's around 5.00am...I managed to have fun at both! So kudos to me...

Hopefully, I wont be subjected to too much stress in the next few days/weeks and that the last few days before my delivery are as fun as the rest of the pregnancy was!

Tchao till next time and thanks Manjesh once again for motivating me to write...

"I always believed that there are 2 kinds of bloggers. The first kinds who never blog, the second type who never blog n complain others of not updating their blogs and then I met the third kind..." :P
