First of all, thanks everyone for sharing our excitement and for your well wishes! We'll keep you all posted as things progress.
So, what's my latest obsession? You'd be partially correct if you guess baby-related stuff.
That's obvious, but it's more of a necessity than a real obsesesion, really. All these baby stuff is really over my head, so I've got tons of studying to do. Between all the books Hubby and I bought and what friends and family passed on to us, we've amassed a small library. Don't worry, I won't bore you with that (unless you're interested in the gazillion different ways you can hold a baby while nursing... who knew??).
Anyway, the real reason I've been absent from blogging is due to another new obsession...
Recently, since I realized that our days of "freedom" is numbered, I suddenly devloped a longing to indulge in all things juvenile. Somehow I just feel like if I don't do it now, I'll never get a chance to do it once I become a mom. One of them (don't laugh), is playing video game all day all night.
I know, crazy eh? But I recently bought this game, Animal Crossing, on our Wii, and I've been hopelessly hooked.
It's a pretty simple role-playing game, in which you live and interact with animals in this idyllic little village where you fish, plant flowers, and trade gossip with your fellow residents among other things.
I know, it sounds totally pointless and like a complete waste of time (when I probably should be spending time reading about the 10 stages of labor). I wondered about that too when I first bought it, but now I just can't put my Wii remote and nunchuk down!
I guess after hours poring over the many volumes in my pregnancy library and feeling completely overwhelmed, it's nice to be able to take refuge in this virtual world, where all you need to worry about is if you've remembered to water all your flowers and sell your turnips before they go bad.
It's totally relaxing. Or I'm just totally in denial.
