Sometimes Plums Taste Like Cherries.

Almost done moving. We just have some cleaning left in the old apartment and then moving the vaccuum and cleaning supplies out. Moving into the new apartment though... we're still waiting for a bookshelf which should arrive today.

Our cats LOVE the extra space. Although for some reason they are now having separation anxiety. Like, you're on one side of a closed door and they're on the other. They hate it. They will meow until you come out or the other person chases them away from the door (multiple times).

My one dislike: the top rack of the dishwasher. Everybody does dishes differently. I grew up washing pots and pans by hand while plates, cups, and the like go in the dishwasher. And it was cups on the side and bowls and little plates in the middle. Jared grew up putting anything and everything in the dishwasher. I was unhappy to discover our wok and our cast iron in the dishwasher. Rusty. Anyway, so our new top rack has four rows of prongs like normal, except they're evenly spaced. And since the bottom of the rack is wavy, it means bowls fall over wherever they want because they can't "rest" anywhere. It is annoying.

And I can't not talk about baby. I had an appointment yesterday. Everything was well. I gained 3 pounds which is probably a good thing since I'm now 17 weeks and that's the only weight I've gained. They had a hard time finding the hb with the stethescope so they used the dopplar which I like better anyway because then I get to hear the hb too! I'm measuring right on. Umm, that's about it.

Oh wait, no it's not! I scheduled my next u/s with a place different from where I got my first one done. They use Salem Radiology when they have to get a mom in quickly, but Diagnostic Imaging is preferred because they're really nice. So I'm scheduled for July 17th. A first for my family: We're finding out gender. So stay tuned.


  1. no one has ever found out the gender before? crazy!

  2. You're a traitor to the Laulusa name!

  3. Aaah, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby! :D I can't wait!!! <3

  4. Silly man. Soap shalt thou not touch to thine cast iron or with rust shall the gods smite thee.
