Star date: Umm, about 2 million light years into this pregnancy…I mean, it’s got to be that long already right? Surely feels like it some days. Naah, I kid, I kid…Well, a little. Apologies for the lengthy pause in blog life here on The Milk Memoirs, but I’ve mostly just a moaning Mertle recently, and that schpiel gets old real quick. So instead of subjecting you to all that for the past three weeks, I decided I’d Continue reading
So there was a constant chatter amongst the men in my office, about V-day plans this past Tuesday. To be honest, there was little interest on my part, mostly because Mike and I already kind of had like an unspoken agreement that there will be no frills this year. Not planned as such, it’s just that we stay real about it: if we feel it, then we’re all in, and if we’re not feeling it, then we’re happily chilling together. This year was definitely a chill year.

As you can tell, I’m still experiencing the new rush of hormones, as well as all the wonder of pregnancy in all it’s glory…yes, in all its sleepy, exhausted, was-that-chloroform, just-shoot-me-now glory. I’m 13 weeks now, but have only just recently crawled out of my Continue reading
