We're Online Again!

Did you miss me? We've been internetless since Tuesday and weren't able to get anyone until today to fix it. Quite a shock to the system when we're so reliable on the internet these days. At least I had my BlackBerry as a backup for my emails and Facebook connection!

So what's been going on this week? I worked a "little" 4-10 PM shift on Monday evening and it was INSANE!!! We were so busy with fairly acutely ill patients and a very busy waiting room and I ran and I ran and I ran! It was a big wake-up call to me that if we are going to possibly be that busy for my last 2 shifts next week, I better at least cancel one of I did! My last official day of work will be next Wednesday, and I canceled the Thursday shift. It's a good thing I did, because it turns out that Thursday at 4 is the only appointment available for my 38 week visit.

Speaking of appointments, my 37 week appointment went very well. Jay was able to come with me and baby is measuring exactly on time, my blood pressure is holding out (I'm actually still quite low - 102/65!), and the baby remains head down. I haven't felt like anything is about to my prediction is that this baby won't come early. Hopefully right on time - that'd be great!

On Tuesday Jay and I took a trip into Calgary so that I could buy one of the most coveted items on Baby's Wish List which is this little beauty:
This is the Graco Sweetpeace Newborn Soothing Centre! What a mouthful! It came highly recommended to me from everyone I heard about it. I was never going to pay the retail $280 for it (yikes), but I thought if someone wanted to buy it for us as a gift I would gladly accept it! So out of boredom, which tends to affect my bank account, I searched for a used one on Kijiji. Et voila! A gently used one for less than half the price! Score! The lady was super nice, I brought it home, took it apart, washed all the washables and scrubbed the rest with all the elbow grease I had and some disinfectant wipes and it looks brand new. I'm so excited about this swing....and of course the future occupant of it.

As far as the house goes....yeah not much to report. Nothing has been done since December 23rd until today. "It's too cold". Luckily we've got a really great forecast over the weekend and into next week so hopefully they can really bear down and get a lot of work done. We're working on designing our kitchen right now, which I'm really excited about.

Which brings us to today. I met Lisa for lunch in the city, and it was so nice to see her! It just might be the last time I see her before the baby and I absolutely LOVE the gift she got for us and baby, another coveted item, a Baby Roo sling! Thanks so much, Lisa! Mom is here for the weekend, so it should be a good one!!
