This & That

-No baby yet. Although I’m still feeling good, I am so ready. Caden was a week early, and because of that, I feel like I am now late even though I’m still 4 days from my due date.
-I’ve been keeping busy. I guess its what you call nesting. I’m going through boxes of stuff, cleaning out Cadens closet, and making room. I’ve brought 2 rounds of things to Twice as nice. However, somehow, my house still feels cluttered. Gotta fix that.
-My freezer is pretty well stocked. I have probably 10 meals in there. For the last month, depending on what I'm making for supper, I’ll double it and put one casserole in the freezer. I didn’t have time to do this with Caden, so I wanted to make sure to do it this time. Today I’m making a double recipe of corn chowder.
-I need to buy another fridge. I’ve been meaning to for a long time, but now I need to. Just for drinks, and that extra jug of milk, and all the jars of soup that I’m canning. My fridge is always so incredibly full and I hate it. We go through at least 2 jugs of milk in a week so it only makes sense for me to buy 2 at a time, even 3 would be nice, but who has room for that in their main fridge. I tried the scratch and dent place in Winkler and they had nothing. Today I’m gonna try Sears and Coop and see what kind of deal they can give me. I don’t want to spend a lot because it is only a second fridge. I’ve tried PV Online but there is rarely anything, and when there is, it’s gone right away.
-I’ve been trying to get some cards made, both for the baby’s birth announcement, as well as Christmas cards. I have a few to make for people again and wanted to get some done now while I know I have time. Although I’m feeling a little lost for ideas, they’re coming to me. I need to look online for some inspiration. With that said, if you need a Christmas card made, let me know.
-Our care group/bible study has split into 2 groups. We were 11 couples. Ours now has 6. I was a little apprehensive about it in the first place, just because I don’t really like change all that much. But we’ve met once now, and will be again on Thursday. It feels closer, different people are talking and it’s comfortable. I think I’m really going to enjoy it. Plus, with there only being 12 people now, instead of 22, we’ll be able to host it at our house, where as before there was no way we could get that many people in our house.
-Does anybody want a cat? We have a beautiful orange male cat that needs a good home. He is great with Caden. Pretty much lets him do whatever he wants. He spends a lot of time outside, although would like to be inside more. The only reason I want to get rid of him is because I am done with animals. I feel terrible for not letting him inside when he wants to get in. He does need to be fed, as he’s not so great at providing his own food. I told Rob that by the time we have this baby, the cat better be gone. He’s not. He needs to be. If you have any interest at all, let me know. He is fixed.
-I am getting close to being caught up with Cadens scrap book. My mom and I have done some hard core scrap booking. Up until a few weeks ago, I was only till his first Christmas. That’s almost 2 years behind. Now, I am till this summer. It feels so good to be getting close to caught up, expecially considering I’ll be starting another one soon. I am determined to keep up with them after this. It’s a little overwhelming to wait so long. Not to mention, to do 1 page takes a good hour usually, so if Caden is around, that only allows for 1 page a day, during his nap.
-Well, I suppose that’s all the catch up you get for now. Hopefully my next post will be about some exciting news.
