the dreaded hibernation

Oh gosh I had such a good relaxing weekend with my family. I’ve stopped going for events or even going out with friends; this period I want it to be all about my family especially Daniel. Together, we settled everything we needed for Baby M’s arrival, Insyaallah, including diapers (big mistake overlooking that when Daniel was born, remember?). She’s got enough clothes and shoes that well.. let’s face it, only I care about haha. Swaddles, check. Milk bottles, check. Towels, check. Blankets, check. Mittens, checks. I think that’s it, I can’t really think of anything else.

This longgggg weekend was exactly what I needed to soak up some manja with husband time and of course, time with my little boy. The three of us spent so much time together that I think Daniel was relieved to see his nanny tonight. -___-” I have to admit, I’m getting a little nervous about going through confinement again and not being able to go out for 44 days! Despite not needing to buy anything, I’ve been going out every single day just to eat out with Dean and “see the world”. Kinda like getting it out of my system before the dreaded hibernation starts. So so nervous about how I’ll handle “prison time”, guys. No going out, no iced drinks… ohhhh, I’m going to be one grumpy soul!

The last time, I was so bored that I watched the clock for Dean’s coming home time. And I would cry a little when he’s late. Hormone level at its peak there, guys. Psycho wife alert.

I really hope I’ll take confinement better this time round. In addition to the new angel I can’t wait to meet in a few days, I’ll also have Daniel around to entertain Mommy 24-7!

Any suggestions on what else to do during confinement?

What did you do during yours?
