~~~~~~~~~~My Aunt came for a visit over the weekend. She is Chad's mom, made famous by his lovely wife Heather and darling boy, Aidan, aka The Pod! We had such a nice visit. We went to the Farmer's market. We made her two yummy dinners, one of stuffed shells (recipe coming soon to a blog near you) and one Mario Batali dish of Chicken Canzanese. We did a little shopping to find a new dresser so I would have some where to put my clothes since baby girl is stealing my dresser. We mostly hung out and talked, which is something I really miss being so far away from my family. I can't wait to go out to visit them all next July for my cousin's wedding. Nate will be 3, baby girl will be 8 months, Aidanpod will be 2 and Heather's new baby will be about 3 months old. It will be so much fun to hang out and play with all the kiddos!
~~~~~~~~~~I have not been sleeping AT ALL! I can't turn my brain off and have been going to sleep at midnight. Waking up at 5 something (thanks a lot micro-bladder), getting myself and a toddler ready then working a full day is really getting to me. Oh, and did I mention that when I get home there is still dinner to make, messes to clean up, Natey to chase around and get into bed and then I have to sew for the Open Market that we still have 2 Saturdays left in October? I'm, in a word, pooped.
~~~~~~~~~~I have been in a 3 day Project management class this week and, while it is very interesting, is a lot to absorb in 3 days. Hopefully it will help me in my career development as I want to take the formal lead on projects and, with the skills I am getting in this class, I feel better prepared for the task.
~~~~~~~~~~Baby Mama is just about done with all my pics and I can't wait to get my CD's so I can get prints made! I have grand plans for the naked wall above my fireplace as well as some pics that I want to hang in Natey and Baby girl's rooms. Speaking of those two rooms, I just made a list of the things that still need to be done and I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment! Nate's room is almost done, so I think I will try tackle that shorter list first. Then I can start on her room!
~~~~~~~~~~I'm 33 weeks and counting now folks! I am starting to be able to see the finish line since I can officially say I am due "next month"!!!
