TGIF v.11

The high of my week was getting my ultrasound appointment booked for February 10th! I was super excited when the ultrasound clinic called, and I’m hoping that they can get the results to my doctor’s office on the same day so we can find out what we’re having! Kyle will have to work, so I’m having the MOA write down the gender and seal it in an envelope so we can open it together when he gets home from work. Yay!

Another high of the week was finalizing my contract/paperwork for the temporary position I landed at the university. I start on Monday! (And am pretty nervous about the whole thing since I haven’t worked in almost 3 years. Eep!)

The low of my week was that it was a rough one on the potty training front. I thought Isla was doing SO well, but she reverted a little at the beginning of the week and it nearly left me in tears. She did way better yesterday though, so let’s hope it was some kind of phase.

A blog post I loved was this one by my favouritest local photographer, Jo Leflufy, about tossing those New Year’s resolutions away. I couldn’t agree more with her; I’m most definitely a deadline-driven person instead of a goal-driven one.

The best money I spent was on some plastic containers to put all of my homemade turkey soup in. Pretty lame that this excites me, but now I have a bunch of frozen lunch-sized containers of soup that I can easily thaw out and eat for lunch at work. I win.

My favourite Isla moment was taking her to an art session at one of the local baby/mom stores on Wednesday. She had SO much fun painting and hanging out with the other kids and was so sad when it was time to go. A bonus? Our favourite little friend and his momma lead the sessions, so it’s extra fun for Isla!

The song that has been stuck in my head is Anaconda by Nikki Minaj, and I hate myself a little bit for it. I even downloaded and threw it onto my USB stick for my car, and Kyle got a good chuckle out of it. Oh well.

My favourite meal of the week was the homemade turkey soup I made on Thursday. It was a pain in the butt to make (the turkey didn’t fit in my soup pot, I burnt my hand ladling it into its containers), but in the end it was really tasty!

My plans for the weekend are visits with an out of town friend tonight, a comedy show tomorrow, and prepping (mostly mentally) for my new job on Monday!

What are your plans for the weekend??

  1. That’s so exciting you have a contract position starting at the university – congrats! What are you going to be doing?


    • I’ll be working on some online content and brochure stuff for them! It’s a 4-week relief position, but it’s an awesome foot in the door!

  2. Congrats on your new position! Sounds like a perfect fit for you! I get ridiculously excited about new food storage containers too – I think it means we’re growing up :)
