Fall has arrived. I’m not really certain that we went through a summer though. At least it never got to feel like it with all the wind, rain and cold temperatures. On the bright side the cold weather has probably made this summer much more tolerable being pregnant, so I really shouldn’t complain, though I’ve missed being outside as much as we usually would have been. Oh well, maybe next summer.
This month I want to…
- Go through all of Eva’s and the baby’s cloths to see what we are missing. Eva’s on the verge of moving up a size and we’ve inherited quite a wardrobe, but I have no idea what’s in it anymore. I’ve completely lost track. The same with the cloths for her baby brother or sister. I know have a lot from Eva, but she was born during a hot summer, so we have a ton of short sleeved bodies, but only two pairs of pants in the smallest size.
- Start making weekly meal plans. Ben and I have been talking about this forever, but now it’s time to get something done about it. Otherwise we end up having to go grocery shopping every day and I have a feeling that when the baby arrives, we’ll have a whole lot less time for that.
- Finish the quilt I started making for the baby. I’ve never tried quilting before, but apparantly being pregnant makes you try new things. Or at least I do. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and have to examine everything about any new hobby or project before I start doing it (which is something I find quite annoying about myself to be honest), but this time I’ve jumped a bit more into it than I would otherwise have. And so far, it’s going okay, though I’m very much out of my sewing comfort zone.
- Relax, relax and relax some more. I’ve been stressing a lot about a lot of silly things, so now I’ve decided – with a bit of encouragement from my surroundings to take a deep breath, slow down and take the time to relax every single day.
