C’est sûr que je pense juste à ça…

J’ai été capable de penser à autre chose pendant ma grossesse. Mais, là, à quelques heures/jours de l’accouchement, je pense juste à ÇA. Au bébé. Chaque matin, je me réveille en me disant : ben coudonc, j’ai pas accouché cette nuit !

Mais, une tempête s’en vient sur le Québec. C’est un signe ! La soeur de mon chum a dit qu’elle avait accouché chaque fois pendant une tempête. Le bébé a sûrement entendu et il a attendu SA tempête à LUI tout le mois de février ! Ça s’adonne qu’on a eu l’hiver le plus chaud que j’ai connu. Le mois de février le plus chaud…j’ai jamais vu ça.

Mais, là…

J’ai donc hâte ! J’espère juste que j’accoucherai pas dans le taxi… 🙂

Je pars pour mon rendez-vous en acupuncture bientôt !

Je vais faire un effort pour penser à autre chose :

  • Hier, au IGA, un gars s’est essayé à me donner une carte de crédit qui n’est pas une carte de crédit, supposément sans frais pour accumuler plus de points Air Miles. Hey. Si ça a le format d’une carte de crédit, une puce comme une carte de crédit, que ça sert à payer des affaires sans vrai argent, même si ça te fais accumuler trois trilliards de points Air Miles, c’est une ostie de carte de crédit. Tsé ?
  • Les écureuils s’en donnent à coeur joie dans le toit. Ça se chicane, ça se bouscule, ça crie comme des perdus ! Là, on dirait qu’il y en a un qui pleure. Bizarre.
  • J’ai fini Heartless, hier. J’attends le dernier volume de la série avec grande impatience. La publication est pour mars, je pense.

Heartless (The Parasol Protectorate, #4)Heartless by Gail Carriger

Super fun to read ! Can’t wait for the next volume and the Abroad series !

Back from Ottawa

We’ve been back from Ottawa for an hour or less. My bag is almost empty, the clothes are in the hamper, the baby gifts are in the washer waiting for me to start a load. We received baby gifts again and we brought back a used (and clean) Diaper Genie.

The food was very good at my sister-in-law and I had to refrain fromeating too much turkey and too much dessert.

We stayed at the WelcomINNS and it was a nice room for the price.

This morning we got up at 6:30 and I went down to fetch our continental breakfast. Then at 9 we did go to breakfast at my other sister-in-law where we ate crepes with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, sucre d’érable, etc.

We travelled by train again and it was worth it. More leg room and more belly room.

I’m glad we are back home because we love our pillows. My cat is very excited we’re back, he’s been spinning around the apartment !

Positive thinking Monday

  1. I am alive to blog and tweet.
  2. This is a new year fresh with no mistakes.
  3. I still have a few days before going back to work.
  4. No comments on NOT having kids YET at my in-laws.
  5. I bought massages and manicures and pedicures to use in the coming months. Looking forward to that. 🙂
  6. I slept 12 hours in the night from Saturday to Sunday.
  7. New schedule at the Y starts today.
  8. I found the fat loss special and bought it before the date announced on Oxygen’s web site.
  9. My sister-in-law infused me with new fears about Harper’s politics. No more head in the sand. I already vote but I will follow politics so I can vote against him for a party that will be able to enter. No more green party.
  10. These holidays were a tiny bit more relaxed than usual and I have not been sick.
  11. I just bought 5zumba  classes! I haven’t done zumba in a few months. The Y has not offered classes on a schedule practical to me or with a trainer I like. So I bought 5 classes at Bamboo Fit and am planning to go at Guy-Favreau as well. More cardio, please !

Bonjour mon amie !

Hello mon amie,

Here is the email I started writing but I got a virus and had to shut it down.

I’m so happy you wrote !!

I have a note in the box that tells you why I sent the box early. I thought that if I had no news it could mean that you’re super busy or maybe things were sad or insane and I knew that sending something would cheer you up. I find it hilarious that you haven’t opened the box yet and that you know that if you send my Christmas presents early I will open them immediately. 🙂

Go ahead and open the box ! There are birthday presents along with Christmas presents. I didn’t know you are turning 40. I love big birthdays like this. I’m glad I sent you everything I picked out for you in Québec and Ottawa. Happy 40 mon amie ! I’m glad I met you.

I am so glad for you that you are not moping around. Too bad you’re not going to New York but you seem fine with it. For ****, I am glad to see that you chose to get off instead of being mad. You have so many things going on already ! I didn’t know your brother separated this year. It’s so sad ! It’s great that you will see your nephew for Christmas. I hope you have a nice and peaceful Christmas and new year’s.

Things are good. J-L has finished school and is starting his training in January. If things go well he might be hired. Besides that things are probably the same as when I wrote you the note in the box. But he decided to make dinners by himself until the 23rd. He’s tired of eating chicken. Hehehe. I could eat chicken every day ! He has been really helpful since school ended. He cleans the dishes every day, he cooks, he goes grocery shopping…

For Christmas Eve we are going at my mom’s. Christmas day will be spent at my godmother’s. New year’s is in Ottawa. This year it’s at N’s place (J-L’s sister) and it’s far from downtown so no hotels or B&Bs. We are sleeping at her place. I bought her a hostess gift, an expensive box of chocolate shooters (it was an impulse buy, a coup de Coeur).  I am expecting lots of comments about grandkids from both families. Blah. But N has a new house and I want to see it. Also, she is kind of “the one who got away”, she’s either very shy or very suspicious which means I barely talked to her in the time I have been with J-L and she’s intriguing to me. Because she’s reserved. I am so weird. I feel like she’s a challenge and I won’t feel like “I made it” until she adds me to her Facebook friends. Hahaha !!

While buying N’s gift I bought myself the same plus another box of chocolates because I didn’t know this chocolatier (Talie) and wanted to experience her products. 🙂 I bought for 98$ of chocolates…insane. You were mentioning your credit card…I’m in the same boat. My braces cost so much that Christmas mostly went on my credit card. I will have to be better prepared for birthdays and Christmas in the next two years.

I’m going in Milwaukee in May !! Remember how I don’t travel much ? I really enjoyed my trip in Halifax and for my work I went to Québec and Sherbrooke. For my work again, a conference, I’m going to the States ! As you can see by the “!”, I’m excited. I love travelling for work. Expenses are paid plus it lasts only a few days. I have to get my passport. The conference is at a fancy hotel and I would like to stay there but to make sure everything is covered I will have to stay somewhere less expensive.

Besides that, an aunt from my mom’s boyfriend’s side died this week and I learned of it on Facebook. Again. This sucks and that is why I have to keep my account. If I don’t I won’t know when a family member dies or has an accident. I got an email from my mom two days later after my aunt died. I wasn’t close to her but I want to know anyway. My mom is really sad about it. This aunt was really kind to our family when my mom started dating R. My aunt’s husband was a close-minded man who treated my mom like she was a pitoune (low-class woman) because she was divorced and she and R weren’t married. S was always nice to us, J-P and S gave jobs to my godfather and my godmother (brother and sister) when they were on welfare. I’m so grateful for that. S made my mom laugh and she always tried the food we brought to potlucks. I’m sad for my mom. S was a kind woman.

Did you open your birthday gifts yet ? Did you have a nice birthday ? Has Andy surprised you ?

Hugs,

Your friend, always !

Des restants

Comme d’habitude, j’ai des restants à ne plus savoir quoi en faire ! Ma belle-soeur, son mari et leurs deux filles sont venus passer la journée avec nous. Ma belle-soeur a pris l’occasion de venir à Montréal pour m’apporter des épices que je lui avais commandé.On est allé à la plage ! Et j’ai vraiment des coups de soleil qui me donnent une allure de raton-laveur rose. C’est n’importe quoi ! Même pas capable de griller comme il faut. C’est un morceau à la fois.

Évidemment, j’ai fait trop de bouffe ! Comme si on allait être 12 au lieu de 6.

3 salades, des chips, du jambon, du saucisson, du fromage et une trentaine de cupcakes parce que je ne pouvais pas seulement faire des cupcakes blancs, ça prenait aussi des cupcakes bruns. Les filles ont préféré des grilled cheeses.

Le 3/4 des cupcakes sont dans le congélateur et je vais congeler du crémage aussi sinon je vais le perdre. Au moins on va avoir des beaux lunchs !!
