Well, at least on a personal front. I've been doing a lot of work the past few days, so I haven't gotten to do a lot of the personal stuff I'd like to. I'm also physically and mentally drained, so I've been having a hard time doing things, working is really taking its toll, especially now that I am having such a hard time to sleep.
So, no I did not get the Meal Plan Monday thing done. We did sit down and write out a menu, but I have not made it to the grocery store yet! Which obviously means the Try it Tuesday did not happen as I had no ingredients for my green smoothie. I'm irritated by all of this, but I just have to get over it. Life happens, a lot, so I need to look at the positives and not dwell on what I feel I missed out on.
In some very awesome and great news, we rented the house out today! I'm still apprehensive since no contract has been signed yet, but that is happening on Friday and we will be getting half of the deposit then and the remaining the following Friday. You have no idea how thrilled I am with this. It gives us a lot of direction and clarity within our lives as we now don't have the burden of that house hanging over us. Our new tenants will be moving in at the end of February/beginning of March. Is that ideal? Not really, but I'm excited that we have a renter, and from what I've heard, they sound pretty awesome. They will be doing any and all repairs themselves, which is a huge relief to us. I haven't officially met them since I try to stay home and relax as much as possible, but that will change on Friday. I have a lot to do, lease agreement wise, between now and then, so wish me luck :). I'm thinking about asking my friend for some assistance since she is quite the expert. I really am just so darn excited.
In other exciting, but not nearly as monumental, news, we rearranged our bedroom today. OK, I mainly did nothing and Victor did everything, but that's how it goes when you are pregnant. It looks awesome! It works so much better for us and the room actually seems bigger. Of course we have 2 huge kennels in there for the dogs, but we can't do anything about that. I still have a lot of stuff to pick up and sort in there, but I will get to it in due time. Next up is the living room and dining room. We are making huge changes in these 2 areas! Since Victor will actually have the whole day off next Wednesday, those arrangments will be done then. I am so excited, you have no idea. I finally figured out a layout that works for our house. We won't be using the dining room as a dining room anymore, it will become the new office. We have a rather big breakfast nook, so our table will be moving in there. This will be especially beneficial once Weston begins eating solids. The carpet would be utterly ruined so being on tile will be a lot better. Plus it just seems natural :). I will still have a lot of placement to figure out, but I will get it done.
The next 2 days will still be pretty busy for me. As I said, the end of January is a very busy time in my particular field, and we get everything done a week out, which means Friday everything has to be done. I'm helping as much as possible, hence the tons of work I've been trying to do the last couple of days. I won't be here much, and I probably won't be getting a lot of personal stuff done, but the following week should be much better and things should flow much better. I am really looking forward to the coming weeks as we start really preparing our my baby boy to get here.
