Maternity Leave!

So yesterday my maternity leave started, it was a bit weird leaving work and not having to go back for a year or so... well I will go back to visit but not to work over the next year! I left work around noon because I had an appointment at the midwife, afterwards I did a little grocery shopping and then headed home to relax on the couch.

We finally got a new scanner so I can show you the picture of our baby boy from my last ultrasound in the end of September, so I guess he is a bit bigger now:)

Best as I was settling on the couch, and an old episode of 90210 was about to start the phone rang! It was my husband, his car had broken down on his was home, and I had to come pick him up and we had to tow his car to the mechanics. So today he has my car, and I guess all in all that's fair since he has a lot longer to work, and I'm on leave. Though today I have a doctors appointment, so I have to take the bus (which I hate) it will take me 30 minutes to get into town, which is about 15 minutes longer than by car, that I could manage, but since the bus only drives one time each hour, I will be at the doctor 40 minutes before my appointment... or I will be 20 minutes late. Luckily my husband is of work early on Fridays, so if I go shopping a bit and exchange a few Christmas gifts afterwards, I will be able to spent the time long enough to get him to pick me up on his way home, so I don't have to take the bus back.

I know I shouldn't be complaining, but I just thought I would get so much more done on my first day off, but I guess I have to wait till the weekend or next week. Have a nice weekend everyone!


  1. Oh man, that would drive me nuts not being able to get stuff done!
