Wow is it really Tuesday again already? I guess it has been a busy week, with our 1 year wedding anniversary yesterday, thinking about upcoming birthdays (my sister`s on Thursday and MIL`s on Friday), as well as re-starting English lessons with Yoshi`s oldest niece and nephew on Fridays.
Our anniversary went pretty well yesterday. I always have high expectations of Yoshi (and stupidly think of other couples I know, and stories I have heard, and read...) which often leads me to be disappointed, but yesterday I told myself that he had probably forgotten the important date, and would work late as usual.
Well luckily for me, Yoshi`s mother reminded him about our anniversary in the morning and he came home a little earlier than usual! Great start! I cooked lasagna for dinner (his favorite), as well as garlic bread, and fruit and chocolate cake for dessert (I bought the cake actually). I made a card, and bought him a pair of Sanuk beach sandals (he usually wears sneakers all summer long) and a t-shirt from H&M.
Everything turned out pretty well and he liked the presents I gave him. I guess his presence at dinner was my present (and I should be happy about it, right?)
Anyway, getting on with it, here is my `Some days...` post for this week.
Some days I wake up early full of energy and can`t wait to get out and about. Most days (especially in this stifling heat) I would rather stay in bed.
Some days I crave fruit and vegetables, and fresh juice. Most days I can`t help stealing candy or Japanese sembe from Yoshi`s collection.
Some days I read the news online and watch Japanese television to help with my studies. Most days I end up watching trashy reality tv while I feed Aiden.
Some days I just cannot wait to move out from under the MIL`s roof and start my life as a real wife and mother. Most days I love having yummy dinners cooked for me, and not paying any rent.
Some days I`m angry that I can`t see (and hang out with) my friends as much as I used to because our lives are so different now. Most days I am happy that I get to spent uninterrupted time with my little angel.
Some days I really want a glass of wine!!!!! I miss wine so much!!!!!... so let`s make that `MOST days I really want a glass of wine` but I am too lazy to pump milk in the evening, so never create the opportunity to drink any.
Check out the other blogs (on the right side of my blog page) for more `Some days...` fun, and make sure you let me know if you start this too. It`s always nice hearing that other people don`t have perfect kids, husbands and attitudes towards life in general.
So I shall leave you with 2 cute pics of Aiden playing in his Bebe Pod (he is now strong enough to hold up his head without any support and loves sitting up to play!)
