I think I worried a few people with some minor changes I made to my social media profile accounts. I switched up my Instagram photo for the first time in 2 years, and my Facebook photo was “only” 6 months out of date with me gazing out of some window. Switching it up caused some alarm to a few friends who love Alfie as much as we do — so sweet!
A few days ago he went in for another bout of treatment. He’s doing great, and he’s still adventuring out with me as these days become numbered when it’s just the two of us. Soon he’ll have a little broski tourin’ around with him, that or my husband joked and told me that he’ll look after baby while Alfie and I adventure about in the funzo vehicles, ha!!! I mean, alright!
Alfie’s been a bit of a picky eater these last 2 weeks or so, which is definitely concerning for us. But I’m trying to keep positive and thinking the 3 walks a day, plus 5 meals a day is filling up his belly pretty good. He definitely needs a bit of stimulation throughout the day and although he loves his routine (he loves the couch, and grunts at me when I’m making my own breakfast, to come sit with him lol), adventures are totally his thing.
A few years ago I was loaned the Lexus NX200t, which I’ve now classified as my favourite vehicle of all time. Easy to drive, easy to park/judge and for me, no blind spots. Well this past week I had the joy of taking the Lexus NX300h out, and it toally reminds me of the previous one we had. I didn’t want to give it back, and that’s kinda rare! I mean, obviously a lot of the vehicles I take out for the week are great, but there’s far and few that I’d actually buy (even if I had the dollars for it).
The first day that I got the NX300h out, I mentioned that it would probably be the vehicle we’ll be driving to the hospital while in labour. And a few people mentioned I should probably protect all-the-cars I sit in, in case……. that water breaks. So, yep, I was sittin’ on garbage bags, Alfie’s potty-pads that we had left over (new obviously lol), and towels. Cause lord jumpin’s I don’t want to be ruining a brand new $50k vehicle! Oof!
No baby yet. But I’ve had a few people reach out to me and ask if our baby was here – I’m just MIA due to a head/sinus cold. And today (yes today Monday January 29) I’m forcing myself to nest. I haven’t gotten to the nesting phase yet, but we have no freezer foods made. I’m quite miserable (lol) if we’re being honest, with the whole cold-thing knocking me out. Though I needed to take charge before baby comes, so we have a few meals packed away in the freezer.
So far on the agenda:
- two dozen egg muffins
- chicken taco’s in the slow cooker (I usually serve on top of spinach, or cauliflower rice and lately I’ve not been making the avocado dressing)
I plan on making more food today while I can. Up next, I might go for a mac’n cheese to freeze. Then, pre-chopping some veggies, and storing them in the freezer for easy access for when we want quick meals, and make some cooked meat to freeze as well. Man oh man, I hope this cold subsides before baby arrives, let me tellya that much.
