need some advice - i noticed some of you cross-post from other blogs to LJ. anyone on wordpress and can advise as to which plugin you use to do this? there's a few out there, and me, being the tech-dunce that i am, would love some help in finding out which is the easiest to use.

it's coming up to meredith's first birthday and i'm looking for someplace to order a b'day cake.. anyone have any ideas/lobangs? am thinking of a "fancier" cake since it's the girl's first b'day! =)
eeps. they did the unthinkable! LJ is now "restricted" by the office firewall which means I can't catch up on the goings on in my friends' lives while at work. sigh. have to use "quota time" to catch up on updates...
erm, need some advice...
am trying to figure out if we should sign up for antenatal classes, and if so, where and when...
any advice from the mummies out there? i'm really a bit lost. was looking online and there are a few too many options for me to figure out what's best and if they're needed...

does anyone else but me think that Ace is totally dreamy? *swoon*
if i could vote, i'd sooo vote for him! i'm rooting for him all the way. him and paris.. the fact that her speaking voice and her singing voice are so different totally cracks me up!
yes, yes, yet another brainless post from me.. go figure.
so tomorrow i get to play the dutiful wife. again. heh. actually i'm really looking forward to it. it's the first race of the year, and while i'm sure that i'll get pretty tired of the sun and the heat by oh, say, june... for now though, i'm really excited at the thought of going out and playing camerawoman and cheerleader.
it's been quite a while since i've had to write my version of a race report for our family which is all over the globe. and i'm actually itching to do so... put some pics up and talk about something else other than me and how crap i've been feeling. hah.
so yeah, bright and early tomorrow... that's the ONLY part i don't like.. having to wake up early on a sunday. oh well. =( going to figure out what to wear tomrrow (cos yes, i am hiao, and i am in that in between stage where i look fat and not preggers so i NEED to at least feel like my outfit doesn't accentuate the *fat* part) and of course, i'm also trying to not look entirely SPG-ish, so while i'm longing to wear a bikini, tank top and my short little skirt that i bought yesterday (read my other blog to hear more about that little escapade), i think i'm going to settle for a pair of daggy sleep shorts i have at home. now, question is... what to wear with that? hmmm.... *bimbo*
A friend sent this to me. I thought it was pretty apt given the gross mood I'm in these days.
For all those who are facing a little self-doubt right now and need a little pick-me-up...
One day I decided to quit...
I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality...
I wanted to quit my life.
I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
"God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"
His answer surprised me...
"Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?" "Yes", I replied. "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.
I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said.
"In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. "I would not quit." He said.
"Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.
Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant... But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle." He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots"
"I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you." "Don't compare yourself to others." He said. "The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern. Yet, they both make the forest beautiful."
"Your time will come", God said to me. "You will rise high!" "How high should I rise?" I asked. "How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return. "As high as it can?" I questioned. "Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can." I left the forest and bring back this story.
Now to actually internalise all that.. bleah. It's usually when things go a little awry that you forget all the good things in your life. I'm so so guilty of that... =(
|You Are Likely a First Born|
At your darkest moments, you feel guilty.
At work and school, you do best when you're researching.
When you love someone, you tend to agree with them often.
In friendship, you are considerate and compromising.
Your ideal careers are: business, research, counseling, promotion, and speaking.
You will leave your mark on the world with discoveries, new information, and teaching people to dream.
Damn, they're good... ;/
Sounds like me, dun it?

ONE MORE DAY!!
woo hoo.. we leave tomorrow!!! yippeee!!!
now just to get through 2 more days of work...
A friend forwarded this to me, and I think it's a good read... very inspirational, and makes me question what exactly I'm doing with my life at this instant. The easy answer to that would be serving out my commitment, but I guess that's no excuse for not thinking about what I should be doing 2.5 years later!
