Oh man it has been a busy couple weeks since we got back from Ontario, last week we were both just exhausted. I worked as my boss was in quite a jam, the weather was awful I got my work car stuck and was having to shovel my way out. My body was in so much pain by the end of the week....I have really learnt to take the words "take it easy" to heart. I bit off more than I could chew that's for sure. We were also house and dog sitting for friends of ours. James has been very busy with his new job, his hours are decent though, however he is very much a man who brings his work home with him...always trying to improve something (I admire it!) and he is full into getting his busy up and running, so evenings have been spent working on that....busy bee's we are.
We got to pick up Emi from the airport on Monday and are so happy to have our little munchkin back, its true what they say you realize how much something means to you when its gone, and not having her around for 12 days was lonely and quiet in a weird way. I know she misses her gramma and grandpa though, so now you guys HAVE to visit both your granddaughters!
I'm still "working" this week and next but only a couple hours a day, as my boss is still training my replacement and still needs to find a 2nd replacement. It's good to be active and walking, but my ladybits can definitly feel the weight of Ziggy after 30 minutes of walking, and I find it so hard to just walk slowly and take my time, I like to just go and get the dogs out for a good brisk walk hahaa.
The plus side to being so busy, we did get around to picking up a few essentials this weekend for baby, birth and now my nesting mode is kicking in full force. I finally got around to emptying our spare room which has been a landmine for jackets, bags and clthes that do not fit me (literally I throw stuff in there and close the door...since we moved in November 15th) I reorganized almost all our cupboards in the kitchen, and drawers so now James has NO CLUE where anything is...but I feel better with where stuff is at hahaa. Hoping to get some baby clothes washed up this weekend, and..........the showercurtain on my bed, not that my water should be breaking this early, but its a brand new mattress. So a shower curtain was the best idea, and also on my list of stuff to get for a homebirth, might as well put it on ahead of time. Anyhoo a few pictures that are now almost 2 weeks old...oopsy. All dressed up to go to the Shaughnessy Christmas Party (James' old work) January 4th, 2009- I'm 33 weeks along here.
I mentioned James has a new job, he accepted the position over the holidays and is now the Golf Operations Manager at Fraserview Golf Course, pretty much the wing man to the Head Pro/Manager/Owner of the Pro-Shop, Tom...who seems like a super awesome boss so far! Him and Tom have been busy revamping the proshop (it was closed due to the snow) Tom took over ownership of it a few weeks ago, and the place was in dire need of a makeover. They both share similar visions for this public course and have done some great work with the place the past 2 weeks. I think tomorrow is the first day it will be open (still lots of snow on the course, but the range will be open) Great work boys and Good Luck!
