I have lots of jumbled thoughts today, so you get a random post.
1. This past weekend one of my favorite kiddos turned one (my best friend's son). If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you probably remember when Teddy was born and maybe also (like me) feel like it was 2 seconds ago. But it was really a year. We celebrated his birthday with a big party on Sunday. I shamelessly stole the idea for a block guest book from Ashley and it turned out great! It's not like me to come up with creative ideas like this so it's nice to have great blog friends to steal from :)
2. I have been trying my best to slowly plug away at the baby-to-do list. I've visited three day cares and still not sure what exactly I want/am looking for (or at least how I'm going to find it). It's funny because they seem to love that I am a kindergarten teacher, yet I don't feel like that degree in early childhood is helping me at all in this process, lol- just as I'm sure it won't help me actually parent! Eric also moved our guest bed downstairs to the office (and put one of our desks in the attic for now), so the "nursery" is now empty and ready to be filled. I start parent/teacher conferences next week, so my goal is to solidify the daycare plan after that and also start my maternity leave plans at that point. We shall see, because I know things will also get busy with the holidays. I do wish I was a little more productive with this stuff over the summer, but at the time when I was feeling nauseous and exhausted, it just wasn't happening!
3. I have officially put away my wetsuit and said goodbye to outdoor swimming for the year. This decision was made partly because it's getting actually chilly, and partly because it required two friends to zip my wetsuit last Wednesday. Ha. I returned to the pool on Saturday and again this morning, it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be. I'm hoping to maintain swimming 2-3 times per week for the rest of pregnancy, and not get TOO bored in the process. Let's hope!
4. The Red Sox are in the World Series tonight! Wahoo :) We had Red Sox Day at school today and believe it or not, I still have a Red Sox shirt that fits. I won't be able to stay up for a lot of the game, but it's still exciting! I understand they do the game times all for primetime/money but I do wish they would start them earlier so the kids could watch them.
What random things are going on in your world?
