I'm a mom of two beautiful girls trying to get healthy in order to be a good role model.

Yay! I saw this ticker on a friends blog and thought it was so cute. It took me quite a while to figure out how to put it in my blog but I finally did it! I'm very proud of myself!

I just realized that I forgot to pick up a gift certificate for someone for Christmas. Oops. I have to run out today and grab that up! I also have to make another batch of my toblerone fudge to replace the stuff I've been nibbling at the past couple of weeks. I can feel my waistline expanding already. Last but not least, I have to finish the scrapbook for my sister in law. Thank goodness we are only doing my family Christmas on the 30th so I don't feel too panicked about that.

Over the weekend we had two parties to go to. Our friend Jay turned 32 and he had a gathering at a local pub. Fraser and I both woke up Saturday morning with headaches! Needless to say it was a good night. Saturday night we went around the block to my friends Christmas party. Good night there too. She goes to her ultrasound on Thursday. I think it's a boy but she says most people think the baby is a girl. We'll see soon!

All this partying has definitely shown me that the socializing (other than sitting in my living room) is alot of fun but I don't really miss it too much. I feel like my life has slowed down alot and I'm enjoying it more. I like it.

Christmas is so close. Does anyone else feel strangely detached from Christmas because of the weather we've been having? I heard on the news that this day last year was -25. Don't get me wrong. I've been loving these warm temperatures. Especially when it is so time consuming to dress a baby to go out in cold weather. But on the other hand, I do hope there is at least a little bit of white stuff on the ground for the 25th. My in laws, who are in Muskoka, have already plowed their driveway multiple times. It's funny how close we are yet the weather varies so much between the two cities.

Spoke to my boss today. I'm officially going to be back at work January 8th. Everyday I have been looking at Ava and almost been in tears knowing that once I'm back at work I will only have a precious 2 hours a day with her. It's heartbreaking. But, my last name isn't Rockafeller so I gotta do what needs to be done to give Ava a good life.

Oops. I guess I already wrote about Ava taking her first steps and I even got the date wrong! It was November 18th.
Totally jinxed myself. The house deal fell through. It was a young couple who needed their parents to co-sign for their mortgage and her dad thought they were spreading themselves too thin (we have an old furnace that will need replacing in the next few years). Apparently even their $1000 deposit cheque bounced! Anyway, as of Thursday it was back on the market and we've already got someone coming tomorrow for a second viewing. Think good thoughts everyone! I want this house sold before I go back to work!

On another note, I am pissed with doctors. My friend with the uterine pains had an ultrasound a month ago. They JUST called her to tell her there is a problem. Can you believe that? And my friend even called about 2 1/2 weeks after the ultrasound (since she hadn't heard anything) and was told that they don't call you if everything is fine. So all this time she is thinking she is OK! And the nurse on the phone says that she can't control when the doctors review the results. As if!!! Maybe that doctor has too many patients then and is not concerned about quality care.

Ava took her 1st steps on Nov 27th! I'm so excited that she took them before I went back to work and I didn't miss them.

More bad news.....they haven't even started digging for our new house yet. Looks like our closing date of April 30th isn't going to be happening.
