Friday Night Leftovers-Maternity Leave Edition

  • Today is the first day of my maternity leave (well mat leave doesn't officially start until May 26th, but I am using up my holidays).  Nonetheless, I will not return to work until June, 2013.
  • Never in my life have I had a break from work/school this long.  I know that parenting will be a different kind of work, but it is hard to wrap my head around how this year will play itself out.
  • Today I was awake at 7:00 am.  I got caught up on the hundreds of blog posts that I was behind on reading.  I finished cleaning the inside of my cupboards.  I made 6 lasagnas for the freezer.  I then went into town and did some shopping and attended my doctors appointment, came home and am now cooking supper.  Successful first day I would say.
  • Ryan is finally done with our upstairs renovations.  Baby's room is done with the exception of a couple finishing touches.  Pictures will come very soon, I promise.
  • With pictures on my dSLR, point-and-shoot camera and iPhone, it is hard to keep everything in order.  Any suggestions?
  • We have decided to put the bathroom renovation off until after Perogy arrives.  Not knowing whether he/she will come early may leave us in a spot where we are bringing a baby home to a house with no functional washroom.  Not good.
  • We got our new well drilled this week.  We were quoted for a 100 foot well.  They drilled 30 feet and found what they called "bottled water quality water".  Needless to say, the cost savings was a nice surprise and I can't wait to get everything plumbed in!
  • I am trying very hard to keep my Facebook account tidy.  I hate to see things on my wall that are not pertinent to me.  I have narrowed my "Likes".  I am blocking all game information that people post.  I can't believe how many games there are!
  • The new season of the Bachelorette starts this week!
