Thoughts for Thursday

Cam and I are beginning to settle into a little routine at home together. He’s really been awesome as far as his behavior and patience since we can’t really go anywhere or even play outside (if he takes off running, I can’t run after him so it’s really just avoiding possible danger). He’s been taking 3+ hour naps, which gives me some great alone time and time to take a nap myself!

This week, I started participating in Jennifer Serravallo’s Writing Camp to go along with The Writing Strategies Book. It’s not only been nice to focus on my writing again in an organized way, but it’s been motivating me to stay in tune with the educational side of social media. Sometimes during extended breaks from school, I end up forgetting the day of the week I’m on and I lose productivity without a regular routine and daily exposure to teaching. I haven’t finished any new resources to post for sale yet, but the ones I’m working on are “big project” type that I’ll be happy finishing by August.

Time is passing by pretty quickly (as it has a habit of doing). I am glad to be in my third trimester with this baby! We received his “Going Home” outfit from Kohl’s yesterday and we’re starting to get his nursery organized once again (luckily nothing is really changing from when we decorated it for Cam, other than it’s become a place to store my maternity wardrobe and some clothes). I’m starting to feel like the end is in sight, which makes dealing with all my aches and pains and restrictions that much easier!

Oh! And Nick and I finally decided on a name for the little guy. We’re not sharing it until he’s here, but it’s so awesome to have that decision made. We had a little girl’s name picked out from the time we were dating, but naming these two boys has been incredibly challenging! Now the biggest challenge is not referring to him by the name unless Nick and I are alone together! haha.

Other than that, nothing new here… Hope everything is good for with you as you’re reading this! Take care!
