Whew! What a busy time in life right now you guys! I thought I would take a few minutes that I have free and fill you all in on the madness right now.
#1 – We are having a baby! Most of you already know this. We are about 5 weeks away from meeting our son and couldn’t be more excited! Lots of doctors appointments, getting things stocked and prepared, washing clothes, getting out stored away baby things from Isla’s newborn days and just general nesting-ness is taking place. Trying to get a lot of other things set up but it’s hard because…
#2 – We are selling our house! It is being officially listed tomorrow so we have been painting, touching up cracks, redoing flooring and generally trying to get things organized for sale. Not to mention searching for homes that we like and want to look at and going back and forth with our mortgage and real estate people to make sure that we are ready to buy and sell. I can’t do a lot of things I want to do like get baby boys nursery together or redo the playroom because we don’t have the space, hense why we are hoping to sell and find ourselves a little more of a family friendly floor plan.
#3 – My little sister is getting married in August and I am the Maid of honour! So excited about the next 6 months but for obvious reasons there is a lot going on! Between creating her stationary, picking out dresses, planning showers and parties, there is just not enough time in a day. If days were 28 hours and I only needed 4 hours of sleep I may be alright!
#4 – Work and Blogging – I work full time and also consider blogging a full time job. Trying to get things organized at work for when I go on maternity leave, getting someone hired to take my place for the year and trying to get through the days when I have so many other things going on in my head has proven to be difficult. I am almost there though and can’t wait for the time off work to be at home with my babies and really focus on growing my blog.
This weekend gave us a little bit of everything. Lots of cleaning to get the house ready for pictures, belly kisses from Isla for her brother, walks outside with the spring like weather we are having, car shopping which resulted in me buying a family friendly SUV (yay for more space and not having to bend down to put kids in car seats) and lots of Sunday craziness with a toddler who obviously didn’t sleep much because of the time change, didn’t nap a wink and pretty much ran up and down the hallways all day screaming and singing at the top of her lungs. Throw in the fact that I have had the worst back pain this pregnancy along with a weird twitch in my hip that has made it hard to walk, made for an eventful and busy weekend but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I hope you all had a great weekend also and you were able to make some memories. Don’t forget to enter my giveaway one post back! You only have until Thursday!
