we also have 2 cars and park it in our garage as well. All the extra stuff goes in our storage shed in the back yard. I can't stand storing things in my garage.

@ Reporter,

I should be able to find out in two weeks from now (hopefully). My chicken herbs are growing well and plentiful. My mother had mentioned that I do not need to worry just yet about stocking up. Will be freezing them some time in the fall or close to winter to prep up for my postpartum.

And we should be able to find about 30 chickens to prep some time in Nov. or Dec. I still have quite a few more months to go.


Some of my preggo vents:

My 1st trimester is not over just yet.

 :'( :'( :'( I can't eat much, let alone smell any food cooking.  :icon_puke_r: :icon_puke_r: I lost another 3 lbs this week  :'( :'( my weight and food cravings fluctuates.

I've got a huge craving for salads, veggies and fruits only. I cannot stand any food with strong smells or spices (which I used to love)...let alone anything sour or spicy.

lilly yes, baby will be my first.

The worst part of this journey is the on and off morning sickness. I spoke too soon, it continuously comes on and off. I lost 3 lbs just in a week not being able to eat at one point in time.

I cannot stand fried chicken, pickles or anything sour, including my all time favorite "peppers" and papaya salad  :'( :'( the smell of fish cooking is even worst along with anything fried...  :icon_puke_r: :icon_puke_r:

Things I can stand are fruits, salads, boiled chicken w/ no spices and mov kua dis. I can gulp a large Banana Berry smoothie from Jamba Juice like nothing.

I should be able to find out my baby's gender in my next appointment. It's super exciting and still feels so surreal.  :love3: :love4: :love4: :love7: my future travels  will have to be put on hold forawhile now and focus on motherhood until baby gets older.

Hello virtual world and strangers,

It still feels so surreal, my little peanut will be here soon.  :love4: :love7: Morning sickness has subsided (thank god) wasn't as bad as I thought it to be.

My little garden is thriving (thanks to my mother). She jokingly said it must be the chicken herbs, it's prepping me for postpartum  :P

LOVE your garden/veggie photos, Nkausee!  SO BEAUTIFUL!!!   O0 O0

Thank you lilly. I hope all is well with you. Stay safe and enjoy.  :)

I didn't read through everything but sometimes it's best to ignore the online trolls. There's always going to be that one individual or two that is going to mock, ridicule or disagree with you. Ignorance is bliss.

On a side note, I would like to thank the female phers on here for keeping the peace. Ya'll men act more like a pojniam sib ceg tsis paub tag cuag li pog sandra thiab whatever her name is on fay-book.

I come in peace.

Today's weather and veggie updates

I love waking up to the sunshine and stepping out to enjoy my little garden

The lemon grass (tauj dub) is taking awhile to sprout, I hope I didn't cut the stems too short when we first planted these  :-\ :-\ i did it to the green onions and it sprouted well  :P ;D



Dills (goes well with steamed fish)

Yesterday's walk. Just the 3 of us (niece, sister, and I)

The weather is getting hotter so we went a little later than our usual time and caught the sunset.

weather's been really nice lately in my neck of the woods. Gyms are all closed so I'm still trying to keep up with my routine at my local park (while still keeping my distance)...i can't really jog on these paved roads cuz it's killin' my shins so I try to do some fast pace walks instead

Just finished our team conference call this morning for work and our telework will be extended until June! yayyyyyyyyyy!

so i didn't know that these are such hot commodity right now. I had to dig em' up around my house. I'm not really a fan of hand sanitizer as it dries up my hands really bad. Preferably soap and water. However it's good to carry these when I'm doing my "essential" runs...

miscellaneous "quarantine/stay at home" food

One evening, since i've got all the time in the world, decided to make stuff chicken was really time consuming deboning but I had nothing planned so why not...of course I couldn't finished all these so had to drop some off for my parents and siblings
