Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Last week was BB#1’s last ice-skating class. He is really good, he got an A.

2. This week they will go bowling and from next week they will be swimming, till the end of school year.

3. The weekend was busy. Saturday morning we attended a birthday party.

4. Saturday afternoon BB#1 went to a Easter crafts afternoon.

5. Sunday I went to the Farmers Market, where I attended a Cupcake Decorating Workshop. It was really fun. I will do a separate post about it.

6. Today I went to have coffee with the girls at our friend’s Cafe called Manuel.

7. I had a Cookies Latte and a croissant, BB#2 had a lemonade.


8. Then BB#2 had a play date with his little friend who is a girl. This was there 2nd date, and it looks like they are getting along, so finally we have a friend, who is our age πŸ™‚

9. Spring break for BB#1 starts Thursday.

10. Tomorrow is our appointment at the Pediatric Cardiology Private Practice. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. My Poor Dad’s car was broken into 😦 They broke one of the windows and took his bag with all his papaers, bank card in it 😦

And all this happend during day time in the afternoon, he was parked in front of his own garage 😦

2. Also yesterday they planted a new tree in front of our building. I am all for more green, less concrete πŸ™‚ But By this morning the tree was gone 😦 I guess they are also stealing trees. Strange.

3. My pregnant friend finally gave birth Friday. She was 4 days overdue. She finally had to have a C-section. She is now a Mommy to a baby Boy πŸ™‚

4. I went to visit her in the hospital that afternoon, but I haven’t seen the Baby yet. I cannot wait to hold this little Boy πŸ™‚

5. Saturday we went to visit one of our friends. BB#2 was not having a good day, he would not go into the house. I could take his shoes off after 10 minutes, than I had to sit with him in my lap for another 30 minutes with his hat and coat on 😦

6. Yesterday we started spring shopping for BB#1. He got 2 pants and a T-Shirt.

7. Tomorrow will be the last Ice-skating class for BB#1, and finally parents can go and watch. I am excited, I haven’t seen him skate yet.

8. Also on wednesday we have a play date for BB#2. We don’t know many kids his age. We had to cancel last week because he got a runny nose.

9. Last week coffee with friends was cancelled, but finally today I got to go for coffee with 1 friend. We went to a strudel shop that is kid friendly.

10. I had a caramel latte and a pumpkin strudel:

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. My very pregnant friend is due TODAY! and she is still pregnant. We go and visit her every chance we get, so time flies faster for her.

2. Friday the plumber finally came! It only took 6 weeks 😦 He did something, I hope this will be enough and the wall won’t get more wet, and after I get it painted it will all be ok….

3. Friday I also had my name day celebration lunch with my ex colleagues. It is always nice to see them, especially my almost 92 year old colleague πŸ™‚

4. They got me really nice presents.


Like an owl mug and a boy of Toffifee Chocolates. I also got more chocolates, coffee and a Tulip πŸ™‚

5. Saturday was the baby rummage sale. This time there were alot of people selling. I even found a really cool Transformers robot for BB#1 πŸ™‚ I didn’t make too much money, but better than last month and at least I went home with less stuff πŸ™‚

6. I also started selling our stuff on-line and I already sold 2 things πŸ™‚

7. Today I went to the dentist, so now half of my head is numb, up to my ears. I had a cavity filled.

8. Our Cardiology appointment for this friday at the private pratice has been cancelled πŸ™‚ The new appointment is like 2 weeks later 😦

9. It is so frustrating that even private practices are complicating 😦

10. Tommorrow I will finally get to have coffee (or something) with the girls.

What I ate Wednesday



I had coffee (I forgot to take a picture) and a muffin. Well actually half of a muffin because BB#2 saw what I was eating and wanted some πŸ™‚



We visited my friend and had lunch at her house. Jacket potato πŸ™‚



My friend also made this awsome pineapple cake. I had tea with it.



Chicken and vegetable noodles.

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. March has finally brought spring. The sun has been shining for days! Hurray!

2. Today we spent 2 hours outside with BB#2. We visited my friend, they have a huge garden with lots of animals.

3. Poor BB#2 was terrified of their cat 😦

4. I got a newΒ  pediatric cardiology appointment for BB#2 at a private practice. I am hoping a more relaxed environment and a new doctor might have a good effect on him and they can examine him without sedation. Wish us luck.

5. Yesterday we visited my very pregnant friend. She is due in 1 week. It is so exciting, we will soon meet her little baby boy πŸ™‚ I cannot wait.

6. The weekend was full of flowers and cake πŸ™‚

7. We celebrated International Womens day and also my Name day was yesterday. A name day is a tradition in many countries in Europe and Latin America that consists of celebrating the day of the year associated with one’s given name.

My Name Day is March 9th πŸ™‚

8. Sunday I went to the Farmers Market and I got 3 of these beauties:


They were red velvet cupcakes with white chocolate frosting and marzipan flowers. They were yummy πŸ™‚

9. Tomorrow is BB#1’s favorite day: ice skating day.

10. Saturday I will again go sell our stuff at a baby rummage sale. Wish me luck.

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Thanks to the antibiotics I am finally feeling better. HURRAY!

2. But ofcourse now BB#2 got a cold. His little nose is all stuffed and he has a cough. But at least he is sleeping good and he does not have a fever.

3. We will go see the pediatrician tomorrow, to see if he needs any medicine.

4. Friday I had blood work done for both boys.

5. BB#1’s results are looking good, finally his TSH level is normal and he is not anemic. Good news.

6. The lady taking the blood was not satisfied with BB#2’s veins so she just poked his finger and squeezed the drops of blood out. Which is a friendlier way and BB#2 was fine with it, he was laughing.

7. But this way his blood haemolyzed (I think) and a whole bunch of stuff could not be determined, so now I have no idea if he is anemic or not…. So now in the last 2 weeks, with BB#2, we have had 3 doctors appointments that were not good for anything. We still need a pediatrician dermatologist, we need an echocardiogram and someone who will take blood from his little veins….

I will consult with our pediatrician tomorrow, maybe she has some ideas how to solve our problems.

I am just frustrated that we spend all this time at docot’s offoces and not even move forward one bit…..

8. I have been waiting for the plumber for 1 and a half hours now. I finally got an appointment from him after about 4 weeks of calling him. I just called him and he is not coming. 😦 The wall of the bathroom is wet, the paint is falling off. It is at times like this that I wish I could do everything myself, plumbing, accoutning, computer engineering etc…..I hate plumbers…..

9. The good news is that it is finally March, so soon spring will arrive πŸ™‚

10. The highlight of our weekend: a Somloi galuska (Hungarian Trifle) cake


It is made with three different-flavored sponge cakes, pastry cream, raisins, walnuts, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream and rum πŸ™‚
