– Breathe, just breathe.
Yeah, stupid joke I know, but my dad told it to me. Twice, because he forgot he told it to me the previous week and I forgot I had heard it.
I realize it has been a week since I’ve posted anything. I have thought about my blog and felt like I should write something, but nothing more than a sentence or two at a time has come to mind. In short, life with Paxlet is wonderful and he keeps me busy.
To keep myself from going stir crazy, I’ve been trying to meet up with a few friends and co-workers to go out to lunch. It’s been nice to get out of the house, enjoy some fresh air and have a walk. Plus, the adult conversation is wonderful! This week, I’ll be attending a meeting at the neuvola office with other moms of approximately 2 month old babies. I hope I’ll hit it off with some of them and can meet them for play dates.
Paxlet’s mostly over his cold he got almost 4 weeks ago, but he still has a bit of a runny/stuff nose. And then last week’s Sunday, I got my first cold of the season. Nasty sore throat, runny nose, stuffy nose, cough and now just the remaining junk in the back of my throat that won’t come out. Poor Mr Siili then got it from me.
My dad and sister have finally purchased their tickets to come visit! They’ll be here at the beginning of December for a week. It’s a short time, but I’m thrilled to have them here. Now I just need to figure out what items I
need want from the US. Deodorant (Queen Helene), toothpaste (Toms of Maine, wintermint) and some candy (Lemonheads, Reese’s Pieces PB cups) are already on the list.
