Feeling:  Frustrated.  Isn't that horrible?  It's the truth though.  We had a week with J gone and then a week with the kids being sick.  I was at my course all weekend and Monday was a day of nothing with J home.  With all that I knew Tuesday was going to be hard.  What I wasn't expecting was that it would be really hard and it was going to be hard Wednesday and today too.  I'm just happy both kids are asleep and I'm able to sit here blogging and watching tv.

Watching:  Dancing with the Stars.  Anyone else?  This is the all-star season and it's been pretty wild.  Lots of things thrown in, challenges and surprises.  This show and some music videos we watched the other day really make me want to learn the latin dances.  I'm hoping dance lessons are in my future, even if "future" means when I'm 60.  Let's be honest, I just want to dance like Shakira.

Giggling about:  Little J's pick up line from last night.  We had our neighbours over for dinner and when they were leaving Little J gave Neighbour A a hug.  And then he said "A!  I think you're forgetting something."  He kissed her.  Twice!  Of course Baby K had to get in on the action so Little A got lots of hugs and kisses last night.  They can be so cute.

Looking forward to:  The weekend!  We're having J's sister over for dinner, have a birthday party Saturday morning and my parents are coming over.  Maybe I can score a sleep-in or a nap sometime too.  

Loving:  Hearing everyone's favourite Disney/Pixar movie in the comments on my giveaway post.  For the record, I don't know which is my favourite movie.  I have trouble with absolutes and picking favourites of most anything is hard for me.

Thinking about:  All the things I have to do.  I feel like I have a million things in my head.  I need to make some lists.  Or have time to look at the lists I've made.  I'm juggling thoughts/plans/ideas for Christmas including what to get for everyone, doula stuff (so much stuff that I will write out eventually), house stuff (yes, I'll write this out too), and random everyday stuff.

NaBloPoMo <br>November 2012

Now for today's NaBloPoMo prompt.

November 8:  If you could have any job (and instantly have the training and qualifications to do it), which job would you want?

A doula!  Anyone can be a doula and go to births so I guess I do already have the job, but I'm working towards my certification so I can be part of an international organization and feel good about charging clients. 

Let me know if you're doing a Currently post or doing NaBloPoMo so I can follow along!


  1. Hope you'll consider joining Ottawa DoulaCARE! It's a wonderful group, and then we'll get to meet in person :)

    1. I'm planning on going to the meeting next week.

  2. I have lists on scraps floating around my desk and everywhere...eek! Looking forward to seeing more of your doula/ house stuff/ random thoughts here.

  3. Lists and I don't get along. I have great intentions, but I never follow through the way I intend to.
