Broken computer, NYC Fashion Week, and maternity fashion flaws

Behind the Screen

I used to hate Mac computers. I only used a PC and that was it. I had no desire to ever do anything differently. However, we ended up getting a Mac and now I’m stuck on it.

I never knew how dependent I’d become upon that laptop until it decided to die. Now I’m using my husband’s PC laptop from work and it’s just not the same. I really hope the Mac can be fixed, we’ll just have to wait and see.

It’s kind of sad how reliant I am on that piece of hardware, I should definitely take a break from all kinds of electronics and get back to nature.

I was hoping to attend New York Fashion Week (it starts the 10th), but I’m not really supposed to be traveling long distances as it’s getting closer to my due date. Having to reject the invitation was the hardest thing to do, but I did learn about how the system works so that I’ll be better prepared the next time I apply to attend the event. Anyone want to go with me next year? :)

Lately, I’ve become really interested in relaxation techniques and the types of music that just help you feel at ease. If you’re interested in some good picks then follow me on twitter and we can share in the conversation.


My other new obsession thanks to a friend who came over for iftar the other night, is Ben and Jerry’s “Karamel Sutra” flavored ice cream. It’s not a good obsession because I want to go out right now and buy another container just for myself. I only have a small amount of time before the baby is due and I’ve really got to keep from piling on the pounds.

Speaking of baby stuff, some of you have written asking me to do some more posts on maternity fashion. I used to write them more often, but lately I’ve been feeling really annoyed with it. I actually realized that I despise maternity clothes. Occasionally you can find nice things, and if you’re working you really want to find decent outfits, but in general they do not fit the way you want.

I can’t tell you how sick and tired I am of hiking my pants up and they keep falling down because someone decided if you’re pregnant everything should be made of stretch (and we all know stretch gets ruined in the dryer) . ARGH!

Or the fact that some outfits are just big billowy bags that make you look larger. And how about the nice clothes that cost a small fortune when you’re only going to use them for maybe 4-6 months?

The worst part is that people who’ve never experienced pregnancy are usually the ones pushing the clothing or trying to tell you how you should put your outfit together. Double ARGH!

I’ll get off my soap box now, I think it’s time for my nap.

All this venting has made me very tired and the baby is kicking me like nobody’s business.
