New year


So much has happened since I last blogged here.
Our sweet baby girl arrived just as we had expected. She is perfectly sweet and healthy, sleeps alot and eats really well. We couldn't be happier or feel more blessed to have such a perfect little girl as the new member of our family.

Before my daughter was born I was different from what I am now and had different habits . That all changed as soon as she was born and so did my priorities. Family is without a doubt the most important thing to me but I have to learn how to keep a fine balance between the demands of job, family and studies, so stay tuned.

QUOTATION - general

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. Carl Bard

Внезапно кончилась огромная халява,
Накрылась медным тазом, так сказать,
Куда ни взглянешь - влево или вправо-
Везде убытки, некуда бежать.

Еще вчера на рынке все бурлило,
Толпа нерезидентов к нам неслась.
И вдруг - чума! Европа нас забыла,
Америка собою занялась.

И началось - коттеджи, лимузины,
Активы, смокинги - скорее все продать!
И чем заняться? Грабить магазины?
Бомбить вокзалы или фарцевать?

А как же рестораны? Осетрина?
Бид, офер, спрэд и - как ее? - маржа?!
Контора в штопоре, расколота витрина.
Ко дну пошла пробитая баржа.

Команда в панике: одни оцепенели,
Другие мечутся и прыгают за борт,
А дальше только омуты и мели,
И нет спасенья даже вставшим в short!

Прощай мечта! Как ты была красива!
Надену кепку, "Приму" закурю,
Не надо "Хеннесси", налейте лучше пива -
Дешевого, московского розлива -
И воблу дайте. Вновь ее люблю.

3 Weeks To Go!!!

So I am now 37 weeks pregnant and feel as big as a house, I am starting to find it hard to move around easily. And I'm hating the fact I still have 3 weeks to go (yes, I know that babies have a tendency to arrive at unpredictable moments...).
My school summer project seems uncompleted. Moreover, I've done hardly anything but research and have several ideas which I haven't realized yet and it make me sad.
I have to complete all these tasks, so I'm apologizing in advance if no post is sent out next month!

Inspired by this site I decided to create my own list.
Here it is:

Everything I do always comes back to me.
Being not truthful works against me.
Thinking that life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now.
Home is the person who you love and therefore your home is where your heart is.
Worrying solves nothing.
Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
Low expectation are good strategy.
Actually doing things I set out to do increases my overall level of satisfaction and supports personal development.

Baby Girl

I am due September 21th, and all I can tell you guys is that I'm super thrilled. All the scans so far indicate a healthy baby, and I am doing quite fine too. So all in all a good pregnancy so far.
Thats it for today really. Just wanted to share my joy with the world.
