Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Last Thursday night BB#2 woke up at 4 am. I was totally useless that day. I am so thankful he usually sleeps through the night. I would be dead otherwise…

2. This weekend we finally went on a trip to our annual sausage making weekend.

3. It was a little stressful for me. BB#2 wouldn’t eat in the new environment and there were too many people there.

4. But the relative’s house is amazing. They live in a little village and it is soooooooooo quite. I could hear the birds and when we went on big walk we saw like 4 cars all together.

5. Today I went for a walk with BB#2. I checked the weather it was 0 Celsius. I thought ok.

6. Then we stepped outside and it started snowing šŸ˜¦ We went anyway, since it took so long to get dressed.

7. We met with a friend for coffee. We also went to the Bank and the Insurance company.

8. Tonight there was a parent-teacher meeting at BB#1’s school. It was “short” this time, only 1 and a half hours long.

9. This week one of my favorite tv series will come to an end šŸ˜¦ Thursday is the last episode for Parenthood šŸ˜¦ I am so sad, I will be crying during the last episode.

Does anyone else watch it?

10. I found a cake today. it is called “Just Chocolate”. It is seriously good :

TTT, Thursday edition

1. I have 10 thoughts, but not on tuesday but on Thursday šŸ™‚

2. I have been overwhelmed with the Blackberry boys lately. I guess winter doesn’t help either. It gets dark soon, and it is either really cold, or wet and muddy and we cannot go outside, so it is not very easy with 2 energetic boys inside, so sometimes I feel like I am going crazy šŸ˜¦

3. On friday BB#1 was invited to a birthday party. They have been friends since daycare, so since they were 2 šŸ™‚ They don’t see each other very much, but when they do they are always so happy šŸ™‚

4. I spent the saturday and sunday at 2 different baby rummage sales. The first one was a small one, that one was free for sellers and buyers too, and the sunday one was a hige one, where you had to pay to sell and also there was an entrance fee for buyers:

This photo is just an illustration, but this is what it looked like.

I actually made the same amount of money at both sales, but I liked the smaller one better. The money is not much, but I at least got rid of some of our baby stuff.

5. I have been trying to be more social lately, get out more, so on monday and tuesday BB#2 and I went to visit some friends.

6. One of my friends is pregnant with her first baby and she is finally not working just getting ready for the baby’s arrival, so BB#2 and IĀ  have been visiting her once a week. I have given her a bunch of stuff and I am trying to help her get ready. It is funny when sometimes her eyes get big when I tell her some stuff šŸ™‚

7. Poor BB#2 got his chicken pox vaccine on tuesday. It was his second, so at least he doesn’t need any more of this one.

8. Mother-in-law came for a visit yesterday. She was here for an hour, but it was enough time to get on my nerves šŸ˜¦ She keeps saying that BB#1 must have a food allergy and that is why he is skinny. He does not have stomach aches, he has no rash, he does not have constipation or diarrhoea, he is just plain picky. Until she goes to medical school and completes an internal medicine residency and becomes a gastroenterologist, she should not be making any diagnosis!

9. This weekend we are finally going on a little trip. We will attend our annual sausage making weekend. Cannot wait to get out of town and our apartment and see our relatives šŸ™‚ The sausage part does not interest me that much, I am not a big fan of sausage, but the men love it…

10. So I should start packing for our trip. I hate packing šŸ˜¦

Sausage

A couple of weeks ago we went up north to visit some family, who live in a small village next to the big city of Debrecen.

We always have a really great time when we go for a visit šŸ™‚

They live in a really interesting place. The village has a really old agricultural high school, which has a big lovely park, in which there is a street in which there are these look-alike houses where the teachers used to live. Well the wife of our relative used to teach there, so they have a nice house there. Another interesting fact is that the agricultural high school, which is like 75 years old, is named after a relative of my Mother-in-law. So I guess she used to have famous relatives šŸ™‚ That was the first time I found anything interesting about my MIL. HA-HA šŸ™‚

So every winter we go visit them and the men make sausages!

So while the men were working, the women made lunch and I spent the day with my boys, taking big walks, sleding etc….
