whined long enough

Okay I think I have whined long enough about this morning-noon-and-night sickness thing that I have got going on.

Apparently this is a good thing…”keep your eye on the prize” people keep telling me…18 years till it is off to college is the prize  (you must remember I am very sarcastic and very cynical, and I think you can throw in sardonic? – I so need a dictionary, maybe even a thesaurus)

Had a sonogram – it’s not real – all magical computer tricks along with a good sound system– ‘Cause somebody tell me! Why is there a fish in my stomach? Fish I tell you! – Just waiting for the horns and tail to sprout… i am sure it is bigger now - but that first sonogram was a fish.

And of course I have been oohing and ahing at the tiny baby things on TV and the cute things in the stores – I will not be wooed by ridiculous items such as...


And Fritz said that he will ask our resident scenic artist (painter for the theatre) to paint a Tigerente mural for one wall in the baby room!!!!!!!!!!!! I might use the fabric that I got from Isa as inspiration or dig through my tigerente books and see what I can find….. I have also tried to convince Fritz that I REALLY need to go on a shopping trip to Germany and Austria to go Tigerente baby stuff shopping! He is not going for it…. I wonder why? I told him not to deny the crazy puking pregnant woman anything! Still isn’t going for it.

And then there is the knitting – I have not been in the mood so much – but I decided to finally to cast a two sox on two circs out of the lovely regia silk that Jacqui gave me a while back. Doing a little chevron pattern that doesn’t really show up yet – and I might just change it half way through the leg.

And yesterday was a perfect Düsseldorf/Vienna kind of day. Rainy and gloomy and just begging for a café in the Fuessgaenger zone with hot chocolate or a wiener mélange, some sort of semmel (broetchen) with a yummy cheesy spread, or a trip to Bitzi’s Pizza by St Stephan’s Dom in Wien or maybe find a dessert café and order etwas mit Mohn!!!!!!!! Mohn is poppy seed - I love mohn kaefer or mohnknuedeln…oh a germknoedeln (aka dampfknuedeln) filled with plum sauce or mohn with vanilla custard like sauce on top…..I bet I can keep that down….

Okay hungry now……see you in a few days! (I mean it this time)

Hey Marietta-

I've just returned from my trip out west and from my even longer mental absence. Congratulations!

My sister-in-law is also pregnant, so I'm falling into the "what's the most fabulous yarn I can use for a baby?" trap. It's not like I'll have to wash it!

That crib is crazy scary, and its price tag is even more frightening.

uh, marietta - do you know they made a film (coming to the cinemas here this fall) about the tigerente?!
it´s from the book "oh wie schoen ist panama". surely you know this one :)

i can send it to you when it´s out on dvd, if you want ^^

Marietta said...

Good to see you back...Jacqui told me (via e-mail) that you have been feeling like crap-ola...should be over soon, right? (So, did you find out...boy or girl?)

katrin said...

uh, marietta... tell us where you will be in germany before you come over - maybe it´s not too far away from one of us.
i will see if i can find the panama book. i´m going to the store next week to find some books for my nephew, so i can also search for this one :)

Tini said...

and if it is far away from Katrin it might be close to me :)
I have some tigerenten embroidery charts somewhere in the boxes... Just let me know and I dig them out after moving :)
