Pregnancy Brain

I don't know what it is, but pregnancy seems to be having an adverse effect on me.  I've become a little bit stupid, very clumsy,  and also have trouble concentrating.  I can't think of normal words while writing or having conversations, I've become accident prone and break or drop things on a regular basis, and do random idiotic things! 
The other day while cooking dinner, I put the olive oil in the refrigerator and the milk in the cupboard and didn't notice it until I needed the milk a while later.  I also called my Doctor in the US to make an appointment.  I made the appointment for Dec. 14th even though I don't even arrive in the country until the 17th!  I didn't even notice - I called my Mom to tell her the appt date and she caught it immediately!  I'm constantly doing silly things and most of the time I just feel distracted and preoccupied.  I only hope this is a temporary affliction and after the baby comes, I start getting back to normal.

Kicked the habit with an e-cigarette

    I quit smoking when I moved to the UK, mainly because I promised my husband I would.  I did it for him, but not because I wanted to.  I enjoyed smoking.  I missed it, but quit successfully for many years until I went through a stressful time and started again.  My relapse lasted over a year.  The whole time, I was ashamed of myself.  I hated the smell.  I hated how I felt, I hated the health risks and I hated my lack of willpower.      I've known a few people who have tried e-cigarettes.  I was a skeptic.  I thought it was going from one habit to another.  The people I knew that tried it, always had it and were constantly sucking on it.  It seemed to me they were more addicted to it then they were cigarettes.  I don't know any smokers that constantly had a cigarette in their hand.      Then in January, I saw a piece about it on the BBC News.  I watched with interest thinking they were going to say that they have found it to be harmful.  What they said was quite the o

Our Disaster of a Day!

My in-laws just left after a five day visit.  I don't mind it being a five day visit, but then again, five days of your house not being your own is always a bit unsettling and although I don't look forward to their departure when they are here, I can't say I'm sad to have things go back to normal. As a treat for my son's birthday, we took him to the Museum of Natural History in London on Thursday.  He chose to go because we took him last year (he's been crazy about dinosaurs since he was three years old).  They give out adventure packs at the museum which consist of a back pack, safari hat, and binoculars with an adventure to follow during their visit.  The back pack has clues in it to solve a mystery.  Last year it had a dinosaur claw, a tooth and a sample of dinosaur skin he had to match up to one on display.  He had a great time solving the mystery and even remembered which dinosaur it ended up being. Last year's trip was wonderful.  We walked right in,

Playing with my new lens...

I got a new camera lens for my birthday last week.  I don't have a lot of time to play with it, but this is one of the first shots I took...
