While I wait to see the progress of the FET with SCI, baby #2 on home soil has entered her third trimester as we enter Week 28. Things are busy with work as the year comes to an end and I prepare to take a year off from work. I have several projects to complete in addition to the day-to-day tasks and requests, six work trips between this weekend and early December, and of course, hiring and on-boarding a replacement.
On the home front, I am slowly preparing and making my checklist. Although this is my second child, it's been almost 5 years since my son was an infant. The good thing is that I am generally an organized individual who does not like visual clutter so there's actually not much to do on the home front. Renovating and extending the house last year really helped with that. Nonetheless, there's still some work to do such organizing (and donating) my son's older toys, going through his baby clothes for unisex items that the new baby can wear, preparing baby spaces, and just ensuring I have all the normal baby items. 5 years is not a short time so I don't have everything that I used to and some things need replacing.
Socially, the calendar is busy in November and December with year-end/seasonal work parties and lunches, birthdays (i.e., my son's 5th birthday, brother's birthday, BFF's birthday), dinner parties like tonight, etc. With everything happening, I am very grateful that I live a drama-free life with wonderful drama-free friends and family members. I really only had one big dream in life and that was to live a happy life surrounded by wonderful people including a family of my own. I believe I am living my dream. On a side note, a life partner has never been necessary but that is another story that requires a blog of its own - LOL!
Thank you for letting me share this part of my world with you!
