Back to Work Shenanigans

So, I go back to work in a month.  I am actually looking forward to this!  Small problem though… we don’t have a daycare spot for E.  She has been on the waitlist since she was but a mass of cells in my uterus but there just isn’t any space!  We need to wait for an existing infant to move up to the toddler room to create a new opening.  Easier said than done though because a preschooler needs to leave the centre in order to create a spot for the toddler that needs to move up to make room for the infant.

Despite what I’ve led M to believe, I am starting to freak out a little.  My fingers are crossed that there will be space soon!

Other than worry about the daycare situation, here are a few other things I hope to accomplish before I head back into the office:

1. Finish up my last task list.  Apparently I’ve been slacking since I identified my last set of goals.  I blame the basement.  That update took a lot longer than anticipated.  Now it’s time to get serious about the last 2 items: personalizing the girls’ bedroom doors and creating an ‘organization station’ for the kitchen.

2. Launch my new feature.  In a recent post, I alluded to writing more on fashion.  This is going to come in the form of a new weekly feature.  I’ll be sharing the details shortly!

3. Do some ‘re-branding’.  I don’t know if ‘re-branding’ is the correct term but I’m looking to make some updates to my graphics and I’m working on a new ‘tag line’.  Stay tuned!

4. Figure out a plan for the backyard.  This is going to be the year I do something with the backyard.  I’m picturing landscaping, furniture and design elements.  I’m getting excited!

5. Get started on E’s birthday book.  When L turned 1, I wanted to give her something special and unique that she could cherish forever.  I decided to make her a book.  It had some cute rhymes I had written and pictures of her and was ‘published’ through blurb.  I set the bar pretty high and now I’m obligated to do the same for E or listen to complaints of “you love her more!” for the rest of my life.  With E turning 1 mid-May, I should probably get started!

The countdown is on to start knocking these items off my list!
