What an awesome Christmas! Got out of work early to head to my hometown before it was dark out, had dinner with my family, opened some gifts, watched the nieces and nephews open our gifts with excitement, traveled around visiting family, and just enjoyed everyone’s company! Baby was crazy all day on Christmas Eve at work and on the car ride up to Scranton so I knew he was just going to be a lazy bum while at my mother’s house…and he was. He gave my sister a few rolls to feel which she was super excited about and a tiny little kick. The next morning my mother was able to feel two huge kicks in a row. It was awesome.
My mother stalks my pinterest page and found an item that I really wanted to hang on the wall in the nursery and had it made for us. It’s absolutely perfect. Over the weekend Joe and I picked out the final piece to the puzzle in the nursery, the shades…so those have been ordered and the painting has progressed. Everything still needs another coat but I’m hoping by this weekend that all the painting will be done! We called Burlington to get the status of our furniture order (it’s been 10 weeks since we ordered) and all but one piece is in so I’m supposed to call them back in 1 week if I still haven’t heard anything from them.
I asked my boss about our new office location, if it has been picked yet, since I really need to start looking at day cares and taking tours of the facilities and interviewing the ones who will be taking care of this child when I return to work…it seems like we are most likely going with the one I didn’t want due to traffic, distance, and not having a parking lot so walking in the dark to the office. I’m not too thrilled about that. My boss is willing to work with me, though…he suggested working from home two days a week to save on day care bills and my stress levels. I’d be home Mondays and Fridays and work in the office Tuesday-Thursday. I like that idea and helps me deal with the office switch a little easier.
