Wife is happy that she is down to 60kg (from a high of 64), but bitching that she has three more to go.

Wait until she sees you've posted her weight on a public forum. Then see what FWPs crop up.

She doesn't speak English. Why do you think he's going wild on here every now and then?

Yea, well, even Google translate - how bad that may be - will give you some indication

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I went jogging with my samoyed before 3 times daily.

Had a good book, and got crazy with all the nesting stuff like cleaning windows daily.

Didn't notice my little one was about to emerge until the last chapter of "What to expect when you're expecting".

Asked the mid-wife to stop calling me by my full-name, as it was taking too long.

The most amazing experience of my life.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Finish the book you're reading. Sleep. Make sure every towel you have is washed. Sleep. Make sure you've got a pile of comfy clothes. Sleep. Check on baby bibs and muslins. And buy a few more.

Go out on as many "dates" as you can with your OH. If you can manage it, get a pampered weekend away just the pair of you.

And sleep.

Wonderful news btw.

Wanna blanket? I know some ladies...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I finished all the Mailänderli and the Vanillekipferli. No choice but to eat the stupid Zimtsternen and all the rest.

Should tell my neighbours to stick to the first two and quit wasting time with the others.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

More than half of the places in a place that held a wonderful classical music concert were empty.
A top notch local Kammerorchester that could perform on any other international stage, authentic musicians. An extremely talented violinist. And yet, more than half of the places were empty.

It may be the weather. We just sold out three giant churches the last three nights we performed. Today is my 1st night without a concert or rehearsal in a long time. Yay! Feel so...carefree

And I do have one. It is true that skipping rope, jumping jacks and squats aren't a bad alternative.

Still, miss running outside.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

This afternoon, I typed the most eloquent response on a thread, but before I could post it, my finger slid right, across my Apple mouse trackpad, flinging the window off the screen and I lost everything and twenty minutes of my life, doh!

In churches? It is classical stuff, usually. Orchestra, choir, solists, etc.

Bands have hard time getting a gig in a church . The rock bands I played in wouldn't probably pass the program committee.
