A LONG week…
Posted November 28, 2008on:
Sorry for the lack of posting lately! I think I may have mentioned it in a previous post but I had a conference in Tokyo which I just got back from last night! It was work related so nothing exciting unfortunately… but I did have a pretty good trip out and met two new folks from my bloglist in real life! (woohoo)
Jo from jumping over board graciously hosted me at her apartment for two nights. I wish I would have made a better guest but I was pretty tired the whole time and ended up sleeping around 10pm each night. But we had a lot of fun and finally got around to making the cupcakes that we had planned on so long ago 🙂
Also since my conference ended early on Thursday I made my way to Kanagawa to spend an afternoon with T and K of TJKR. It was pretty miserable and rainy but she made a lovely lasagna from Cost Co which was heaven on earth and we had Cost Co muffins and tea! K was adorable as well!
So seeing those two was the highlight of my trip.
The conference (anyone who has been on JET knows what I am talking about) was not so fun. Blah… I hate to say it but I spent most of my time doodling on my notepad and spacing out while counting down the hours til I could leave.
I also managed to catch a bit of a cold which I was out in Tokyo. Of the sore throat and stuffy head variety.. thankfully I’ve been taking in easy since I got back and I’m not at work today so I was able to get about 12 hours of sleep and that helped a lot!!
For all you interested readers, a bit of a pregnancy update.
Nothing really exciting to speak of… I’m now almost 7 weeks and I’ve had a tiny bit of nasuea but nothing thats sent me running for the bathroom.. or trashcan. I’ve had some minor period type cramps as well but they usually disappear after about 5 minutes or so… besides that mostly just the complete exhasution is getting me. I’ve had about a billion people telling me recently you look so tired… lol Hmm besides that – I’m pretty much off sweets. Which if you know me, you would be completely surprised as I am a sweet-a-holic… but I’m much more into veggies and cheese at the moment.. more savory tastes. I had an absolutely fantastic herb chicken pita sandwich from Via De France (sp??) bakery yesterday which I highly recommend. I just am annoyed that they had to drench the bottom lettice in mayonaise! I HATE Japanese mayo with a passion and that is just increased in the last few weeks. I hate that it is so sweet… yuck!!
My appointment is next Weds. So less than a week until I can finally (hopefully!!) see my baby and his/her heartbeat. I think I just need something to make this all real since so far I’ve had a relatively easy pregnancy.
Despite so much going on this month I haven’t really written very much. I think my December should be more low key so hopefully I will get some more posting in!
Anyways tonight is a Thanksgiving dinner being put on by a place in Osaka! Its a bit expensive but having a little bit of home away from home is priceless!!
