Leaving for London tomorrow so today was a day of running around. My mum is coming with me tomorrow, even though the house is nowhere near complete, but we’ve worked hard to do a lot so she can come with me tomorrow, and then she will probably have to come back and forth, I don’t know. There is time since my due date is September 22nd, but I’m not sure what her schedule will be. We’ll see.

But my dad has to stay in Greece sadly, for now, so I was assigned the grocery shopping list to get supplies for him and the house for when we are gone.

Which I thought would be easy….I was wrong!!

I went to one supermarket and picked up what had to picked up there. Took me a while, but found everything in the end. Then went to another supermarket for the rest of the list, but annoyingly they didn’t have everything, which I searched and searched for!!! I guess it’s Friday and also August so people are away for the weekend and for holidays, so they just have not stocked up with a lot.


So back to another supermarket. If only I knew that those items would not be available at the second supermarket….but I guess there was no way to know.


Anyway, in the end I got everything but it took way longer and way more effort on my poor cut up swollen feet!

So what better way to reward myself after all the grocery trips….with a SOUVLAKI!!!! My dad brought back souvlakis on his way home as the last one before I leave 🙂 And he also got desserts too!!! Now I can’t breathe I’m so full, but sooooo worth it!!

Perhaps the baby name we should be considering is Souvlaki!! Haha!!

It’s one of those days…you have a shower and then boom you’re drenched again it’s so hot, and you haven’t even left the house yet!! I have to carry props today too of course in this heat mania! It’s the humidity that’s going to kill me – and its only May!!

Holy Crappo!!

That’s part of the reason I hope to get out and have the baby in London as this will be horrendous here if I have to stay as its going to be such a hot summer at the rate it’s going! UGH! It’s going to be miserable pregnant here!!

AHHHHHH!! Please Green Card come before I can no longer fly!!!

I’m also in that in between phase too where I feel like I do still need to cover the bump, which is there, because I still feel like I’m in the “unsure if she’s pregnant or just fat” area! And still in denial, I know I know!

I have lots of baggy clothes so that’s not the issue, although you can still see the bump, but I need to wear layers too under as in my office and in rehearsal it gets cold – so I can’t win in this dire heat!! All the baggy clothes that are the lightest for this heat are super huge too so I look even bigger, but frankly I don’t care in this heat!

It’s just too hot!!

365 ONE: DAY 100…I REACHED DAY 100!!!!!

Dance of the Day was = “Hey Mr DJ” by Madonna

I reached DAY 100!!!!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know, I know…I have sooooooooooooo long to go still but reaching a large number like that feels good! I can’t believe I have been doing this 365 Challenge for 100 friggin’ days!

Well, on day 100, it felt again like 100 degrees, appropriately!! It is beach weather out there for sure! People in tank tops and short shorts…crazy! It was nice to walk in but hot. Walked over to see an apartment for a client and then walked to Macy’s to see if I could find some luck with some maternity bras as have failed everywhere! But I forgot how much Macy’s kills me! Too many people!! However, I had a Macy’s gift card so decided to check out their maternity section…and yup, you guessed it, I got super overwhelmed. And emotional in the fitting room! I was a little sad that again nothing looks or feels good. I know I am still in the hiding the bump as much as possible phase but also feel like I am in the in-between phase of being pregnant. All the clothes are really made for those to be showing off their bump, which is beautiful, but feels like that is a later stage than now. Ugh. I also got a little sad as I feel like this is something my mum should be around for. 😦

But its DAY 100!!

Must think of the positive!!

Positive things:

– I am not a third of the way through the 365 Challenge but close to it, and past a quarter of the way through!

– Some big auditions coming up tomorrow and next day so that’s good!

– I have a little one somewhere inside me who’s probably already thinking I am crazy!

Oooooh that last point scared me a little writing that.

When am I going to get over the overwhelming feeling? Or the scared feeling? Or the denial that there is even something in there and that will be coming out and changing my life as I know it??


Just going to focus on…that it is DAY 100!

Boy does walking up stairs kill you!!!

I decided my cardio for the day would be to walk down the 17 flights from my office floor to the deli to get lunch for my boss and then walk back up. However, the plan got booted when I walked down, got the salad, and then realized I could not re-enter the ground floor to walk back up. So I had to improvise! I went back up to the 17th floor and then thought, well I still need to walk up 17 flights so will just take the stairs up. The one stairwell I normally walk down though only went to floor 18….but thanks to me snooping around I found another stairwell that would take me higher 🙂

This stairwell is cool as you enter a little small outside area before the door to the stairs. There was an elevator shaft opening and looking down there was crazy! It is soooo high up!! There was a similar opening at the 34th floor too but outside – looking down is just scary! It made me think about the Triangle Fire that I had learned about as was in a musical about it last year…and what would go through your mind if you had to jump. Ugh. Need to shake that thought off!

So, up I went. Trucking up and up and up…..ugh! It’s so hard to walk up stairs in general, not to mention that the higher I went the more out of breath I got. The altitude seriously makes a difference. I was kicking myself that this was what I chose today as my cardio….why!!!???!!!

No really…WHY?
