Today was prep day as tomorrow is Greek Easter and we are having people over for the usual feast day – although we sadly have no Ursus left as we drank it all at our wedding! And no drinking for me….strange!
The apartment looked like a bomb had hit it and impossible to walk through so we needed to tidy up, put things away and clean. I still hadn’t unpacked since my trip to MD for the filmshoot – it was in the suitcase on the floor of the living room still! So something had to be done!
And had to go shopping at Costco for the big bulk items and then at the Greek shops and bakery.
Just finished cleaning the apartment and shoving things aside and I’m exhausted! And haven’t started cooking yet! May be saving the cooking to the morning…

Super tired today but as usual could not sleep. And annoyingly, could not sleep in when I could have today!!!!
I didn’t finish moving and unpacking the office until 1am this morning!! There was drama all day with the movers and the building that only got worse as the hours went by and the 10pm apparent deadline approached for the movers to be done. They had to move out the whole office suite furniture for the others in the day and then it was supposed to take from 6pm-8pm to move us all up to the 18th floor with the furniture and boxes and items remaining BUT it was not that simple! The building wouldn’t allow the movers to use the freight elevator more than three times during the day otherwise they charge something like $180 an hour!!!!! CRAZY!!!! So, there was a delay in getting the mass amount of the building that accumulated until 6pm.
Once 6pm struck they were allowed to use the elevator again apparently as many times as we liked BUT the building said only to go up with the items!! So they battled it out and agreed to get the remaining bulk downstairs as they needed to apparently be out now by 10pm and the trucks needed to be loaded too. So half the men went down to load the trucks and then only a couple were left to move us all up to our new offices!
AND then it was something like 9.15pm and nothing from my office had even moved yet because they were doing it in order from the door and sadly our office is the furthest away, so we were last 😦
Well, why this drama was going on and the delays were growing, we all decided to carry up some small things ourselves, which I know, was not the thing I was supposed to be doing, but I couldn’t sit around. So I carried up small things and then ran out of those, so discovered that things on my shoulder were better so filled the large Ikea bag and carried up some things….and they were a little heavy, and I know I know I wasn’t supposed to be doing that when pregnant. I was smart though in my defence as I had to resist the urge to just take the crazy heavy things up, but I didn’t!!
It was funny though as I realized that I could not carry things in front of me with the BUMP! I realized that when I carry things I rest them on my belly or on my hip to make it easier, which could not happen, so had to rely on arm strength and my lack there of made it sooooo hard!!
The bump was in my way!!
But, it was a constant reminder to take it easy, so I guess that was good 🙂
Anyway, it was a long day and a late night, so was able to sleep in….and guess what…I could not! My body and back have been achy these past few days so needed to rest but ugh, sleep is rough these days. Somehow I need to fix this 😦
Hence why the early 365.
Hence why my dance was in slow-mo in the kitchen when it should have been a crunk dance party.
Slow slow slow putting!

Today was supposed to be a simple day.
Do some work in the morning, go to Costco with my friend Paloma, go to dinner with some other friends.
Instead TRAFFIC HELL screwed it all up!
I had a plan too. My cardio was going to be me jogging to the garage to get the car to go to Costco, but then ended up doing way more walking and way more friggin’ leg work in the friggin’ car while stuck in major friggin’ traffic!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can we tell I am annoyed haha!
It took me two hours to drive from Costco in Astoria to Paloma’s apartment in Harlem and back!! RIDICULOUS!! She had bought some heavier items and thought it would be no problem to drop her off so she didn’t have to carry anything and it should have been no problem, especially as its Saturday. So we decided to save on the stupid high price of the toll over to Harlem and take the free bridge, which sadly we got super stuck on!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then I finally got her home but thought it looked better on the way back so thought I have a little time why not take the same free bridge back….but did not think about the construction down Second Avenue for the new subway, and yup, I got stuck again!!!!!!!
My leg was killing me by the end since I have a stick shift car!! ARGH!!!
And then sadly, I started to get super nauseous while stuck in traffic 😦 I hadn’t planned on it taking so long so had no lunch and ugh, the constant braking and starting of the car was jerking me back and forth and seriously not helping how sick I felt.
Then I needed to pee!
AND…it had turned cold out and since I was now late to dinner with friends and the restaurant they picked was further away I had to go straight there and was not wearing enough!
It was supposed to be an easy relaxing day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sidenote: the women at Costco today were crazy!! I watched two instances of women grabbing over people’s heads to get all the free samples before anyone else. Sooooo rude!!!
