11, 12, & 13

Sorry – not alot going on, so I havnen’t make my daily post.  Not sure how I started posting daily this December – it wasn’t anything I was planning… but I will try to continue.

So Matt’s parents have generously offered to buy Matt and I a glider / rocking chair for the nursery!  Pat, Matt’s mom, and I searched all over Stratford last weekend for a rocker – nothing.  They were either very old fashioned (meaning they should belong in a nursing home – not a nursery), or insane expensive.  So, last night we went down to Babies R Us in Kitchener – and they had one that even included the ottoman – for a very decent price!  So, it is now sitting in Alex’s nursery!  Thanks Pat and Dale!

Tonight is my work’s Christmas party – a pot-luck at a staff member’s house.  This is the first time in 7 years that I haven’t planned the party – now I should be able to enjoy it!

Matt mentioned on the way home from Babies R Us last night that he hasn’t felt the whole holiday thing yet this year.  I think it is because we are thinking and planning for January and for when Alex is coming home – we are not focusing on what’s happening in the now.   He’s gone fishing this morning – I think I might go downtown and revel in the holiday madness – Stratford has a beautiful and relatively thriving downtown (mainly due to the summer theatre visitors).  Then I might get the holiday bug bite.  Or perhaps some more eggnog will help out?
