|I'm unsure about what I want to blog about today. My mind is feeling rather scattered this morning and I'm seriously condsidering going back to bed. The only problem with doing this is that it will wreck my entire day. I have some eBay work to do and I plan on going over to the hospital this afternoon to meet Olivia.
Olivia arrived shortly after 2am yesterday morning. Jo is so excited that she has a new baby cousin! I do feel badly for my step sister. Her water broke at 530am on Monday morning and I don't have all the details except that a c-section happened almost 24 hours later. My step mom was telling me how hard it was. That I can only imagine. All is well and she weighed in at 9 pounds and 9 ounces. I don't know much more than that. Hubby was home early yesterday and I was very tempted to go and visit, but decided to wait until today. I'll tell you more about her when I get to meet her in person!
Did I tell you that my brother finally got an apartment. His very own apartment. It stills seems surreal. He moved in here about 4 years ago and it was supposed to be temporary. We told him back in 2003 that when we did our last IVF that he had to move out if it worked. It didn't so he was content to just stay. He moved between here and my sister's place for a while and now he is finally going. It's not that I don't love my brother and he is a great help with Jo most of the time, but we need the space. Especially now with our renos soon to start. May 1st is the moving day. I will soon have a room to set up my computer and sewing machine and not have things all over the basement. I can't wait!
It's snowing here again today. Just when we were starting to see the grass it's covered again. Mother nature just seems to tease up into thinking that we can put the winter stuff away and then we get more. I sent Jo to daycare this morning with her snow pants instead of just her splash pants. Maybe that's why I am feeling so tired. The ups and downs of spring.
We go tomorrow and sign for the new mortgage. I think the porch idea on the back of the house is history. Hubby talked to a contractor yesterday and in order to add it on we have to dig down to the original footing of the house and build up from there. There is another way, but both are going to be expensive and will eat up close to a third of the budget. I am however excited at the prospect of putting in a new furnace. I mentioned adding air conditioning at the same time and hubby said we didn't need it and he has now changed his mind. Most of the summer we can get by ok without it, but if we have more summers like we had last year it will be well worth the extra money.
I'm off for this morning.
Good day to all
