Quick Update: August 2016

I haven’t posted much on the blog this month… I am seriously lacking motivation to complete any projects lately. Being third trimester pregnant, up 40 lbs and dealing with the Toronto heat is not a good combination!

Regarding the pregnancy, back when I was dealing with vasa previa, my OB scheduled a csection for 35 weeks. That would have been today! Crazy to think that baby Livvy could have been been here by now! Instead we need to wait another 5 weeks.

Probably a good thing because we still have a few more things to cross off the to-do list. Nothing major… just putting the new mattress in the crib, installing the car seat and hanging artwork in the nursery. There are a few other around-the-house tasks to complete as well but they aren’t impacting baby’s arrival.

I only have 2 days left of work and then I’m looking forward to hopefully having a full month to relax before Livvy arrives! Anyone have any Netflix or Shomi recommendations for me?

Have a good weekend everyone!

Spring Updates

How is it already the end of April? I feel like I have missed the last couple months!

I am writing this post from 35,000 feet in the air en route to Banff for a conference. When I get back to Toronto, M and I are taking the girls to Niagara for a couple days at Great Wolf Lodge. Everyone is looking forward to some time away.

Starting in May, things are going to finally slow down a little for me. As I shared with you all back in February, I started a new job. What I didn’t mention is that it is only 3 days a week but up until just this week, I was working the new job plus 2 days a week at my old job to wrap things up. I am now officially finished at my old job (although I am continuing with one of my projects as an out-of-office consultant, but that is another story!) and excited for 4 day weekends every week! I am so pumped to have more time for hanging out with the girls, completing projects around the house and attempted improvements to my domestic goddess self (like maybe doing some chores or cooking legit meals).

As if this isn’t enough of a change, I found out earlier in April that I was accepted to do my Masters! I am officially going to grad school in the fall! I’m a little nervous about the prospect of going back to school but am also very excited for this challenge and the opportunities it will open up for me.

I will be off the grid for a few days while I’ll be travelling but I’ll check in next week. Enjoy the weekend!
