Long Time, No See!

That’s probably what you all think of me. Right? My apologies! I’m currently on my way to Denver to visit my bestie, and thought I would update you on things while I have a three hour layover.

So what have I been up to? Tons!! As far as writing goes I took on a huge project this month which up until today had me working weekends and late into the night. It didn’t help that despite the tight deadline, more work was added at the last minute. But I still managed to get it done before I went away. In fact, I finished it an hour before leaving for the airport. This month I have literally been going at a break neck speed with writing. On top of said huge project, I kept up the work I do monthly with my regular clients and I have to say this month has worn me out! I am oh so grateful for a short getaway to Denver even if it’s just for three days. This month has got me thinking that it’s time I slow down and maybe occasionally start saying no. While I will enjoy a record month in income this month, starting next month I need to think about me and make time to relax. At four and a half months pregnant, I can’t keep up the break neck speed.

Other things I have been up to aside from work. Well, obviously I’m taking a short trip. I’m, on my way to Denver to visit my best friend and can’t wait to see her. This is probably my last trip without a child, so I jumped at the chance to go. I’m happy to say, we have nothing planned and I’m thrilled to just lounge around and catch up with her for a few days.

On the baby front, I’m four and a half months pregnant already. Man has it gone fast!! I can’t believe it – it feels like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant. I have to say the first trimester was hard. I literally felt like puking 24/7 – which was SO not fun. It’s definitely better now and I feel much more normal aside from the occasional mood swing or headache. I’m starting to show a little bit and finally broke down and bought some maternity clothes. Let me just say shopping for maternity clothes was not so fun, but god love Old Navy as it was the only place I found clothes I liked and that were actually a decent price. We’ve heard the heartbeat a few times now and it is so amazing every time that I get all emotional and cry. I can’t help it! Also, we find out the sex in September and I can’t wait! I haven’t even started planning the nursery yet because I want to know what it will be first. Every day I wake up and the first thing that comes to mind is whether or not I’m having a boy or a girl. I have no idea how people wait to be surprised! No waiting here – I want to know!

I’m getting very excited to be a mom and to hold my baby. It finally feels real and January cannot come fast enough! There are some things I need to work out as far as work goes. I’m not giving up any of my clients, but I think when the baby arrives I will need to cut back initially then ease back into things.

Okay, now you should be all caught up with me. I’ll be back sooner than later, I promise. For now, enjoy your weekend – I know I will!
