Brakes & ignorant drivers. On Friday morning, my brake switch and sensor went faulty on my car. It caused my ECS & Down Hill Park Assist icons to be illuminated in the dash. It also meant that I had no brake lights and limited traction control. I hesitated booking my car in, but wound up biting the bullet. I spent 3 hours with my children sitting in a dealership on Friday afternoon. Fun times. I know… your jealous!
Friday night upon driving back from our new build, a car ran a red light and cut right in front of us. The driver was so invested in his conversation with his passenger that he did not hear our blaring car horn or the screeching tires. It actually took another driver on the road blaring his horn to catch the drivers attention. Our car went from 60km/hr to 0km/hr in less than 5 seconds. I thought for sure we were going to collide. I still can picture the passengers face vividly. A face of sheer horror. You could tell her life was flashing before her eyes. Thankfully we all walked away okay. I’m a little sore from being jerked around and bracing myself, but otherwise I’m happy my family and I are all healthy and safe. That’s all that matters.
2 or 3? Only time and fate will tell… You may or may not get what I mean, but I’ll cut to the chase. We’re currently trying to conceive our 3rd. Not actively, but not avoiding either. We always planned on a large family. Originally the plan was 4… and then 3… However, I’d be happy if the 2 we’ve already been blessed with were our last. So we’ll see where this journey takes us. I’m already on cycle 4, but like I said we’re in no rush, nor are we actively trying.
Work from home or Stay at home… I’m a stay-at-home Mom. I made the decision to leave my account management and administrative position in mid-2010 to stay home and raise my beautiful daughter. I was also pregnant with my second at the time. It was the best move and decision for me at the time. I’ve enjoyed every moment of being able to stay home and watch my children grow. I feel so fortunate. As my children grow older, I’m reaching a point where there are days that I find myself yearning for something more. A work at home job would be awesome, whether it be 100% or 90%-80% from home and 10-20% in office. The opportunity just has to be the right one. I’ve tried the whole daycare thing and trust me it just isn’t something up my alley.
Boxes?!? I need more boxes!!!! You read that right! We were originally 7 weeks delayed. Just last week we received the news that our delay has been bumped up from 7 weeks to only 1 week. Which means… I need to start packing!! Less than a month until we take possession of our new home. I couldn’t be more excited.
Sibling rivalry will get the best of me. It feels like my children are always butting heads. Seriously can’t we all just get along?!
Nap time cut short. Son just woke up…. confessions interrupted… until next time!
