My little pancake maker! 🙂 Funny side note: the whole time he was mixing the pancake batter he thought he was making himself cupcakes — oops! Language is a tricky learning curve.
This past weekend I switched my blog over from Blogger to WordPress (and NameCheap to Bluehost) and I HATE the change. It has been such a bad experience and I wish I didn’t do it. I thought WordPress would have more options and that it was a good thing to self-host my blog because I recently read a few stories about how that’s best. But this has been the worst. First, my blog was down for days and is still spotty. Next, I’m having trouble with the concept of plug-ins and I don’t understand why I need a million to make a tiny change. Third, all my pictures are so blurry in all my past posts and I definitely don’t have the time or patience to reformat them. I mean… there are over 1,000 posts. There are so many more reasons why I’m unhappy, but ultimately I made the switch (and paid for it) and now I just have to deal with it. But that won’t stop me from ranting about how unhappy I am.
When I wasn’t glued to the computer and online chatting with “Govinda” over at Bluehost’s help line — we had a weekend at home. It was great! Especially because we’ve had so many busy weekends in a row (and our upcoming weekends are really busy too) so it was nice to just hang out, stay in sweatpants and do nothing. Aren’t those the best days?
It’s officially October and I’m 27 weeks pregnant which puts me in the third trimester. This one is going by a lot quicker than my first pregnancy and I think it’s probably time to start thinking about what I need for her… and maybe get her room ready?! We’ve done nothing and while we have some gender neutral baby things — I know we need clothes, a crib, bedding, bottles, pump-gear, diapers — just all the stuff that helps make having a baby exciting.
Javi is having a blast in school. It’s gotten to the point where he doesn’t even glance my way when he passes me in the hall and he doesn’t look back at me when I drop him off in the morning. He’s so happy about school and it’s such a nice feeling to know that he loves it so much. We’re still working on our routine but so far, so good! The trickiest part for me is making a lunch for him every day. How do people do it?! It’s been a month and I’m so done with lunch boxes. After researching online, Pinterest puts me to shame and I definitely need to up my game.
Well, I’m off to figure out what else I can actually fix within this blog of mine before I have to figure out which parts I need to outsource. Blogging is definitely not easy!
