I am well overdue for a pregnancy update, the last one having been posted over a month ago. I'm at week 32 which means I am only eight weeks away from temporary surrender of my freedom (as I know it) and that means I am trying to savor every day, every moment of "me" time that I can find.
With my three year old son at Montessori school five days a week, I am able to find loads of time for myself -- even if that "me" time involves things like laundry and washing dishes. Seemingly mundane activities like chores seem awesome if you can do them without the constraint of a toddler or infant only moments away from needing to pull you away from something you may already not want to do. So for the five or six Fridays, I am going to try and celebrate the happy moments of the week. Because I'm sure I'll be looking back at these posts fondly come January.
A beautiful week of fall weather and walks. Thanks to some recent Fitbit challenges, I've been trying to get out and walk more and the weather here in Colorado has definitely been cooperating, so I've had no excuse but to get outside and move. It's tank top weather people! It's wonderful!
Crossword puzzles. I've been enjoying crossword puzzles lately. It's a fad, but I'm enjoying it all the same... The best part? I do them on my smartphone...a great way to kill time when I'm waiting...
Watching old movies. My husband's out of town all week so I have complete rule over the television programming at night after little K goes to bed. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Julie & Julia for the fifth time earlier this week. I love that this movie is about blogging and food.
Watching new movies. Mid-week I decided to go see Gone Girl. I read the book last year and when I heard people saying the movie was as good as (if not better) than the book, I knew I had to go see it. The other bonus of seeing a matinee on a Wednesday? It cost all of $5!!
Halloween starts early this year. I'm looking forward to Friday night -- we're taking our son to the local outdoor mall for some Halloween festivities!
What were some highlights from your week?
