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?
