Getting Used to New Life

I've officially been out of school for a week, and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what to do with my time.  My days pretty much go like this:  clean the house, get ready, do some sort of project, make lunch, and spend the afternoon outside with Halle and the neighbor kids (my tan has improved in a week).  I love spending time with Halle, but I need to get used to being at home so much.  I am used to running around the clock, so taking life easy is quite the adjustment.  I know I need to appreciate the time, because once the baby comes, life won't be so simple anymore.

Events of the week:
*Sam got called to be Ward Activities Director, so now we get the opportunity to put together the ward camp out (to be held next weekend)

*Halle is speaking in the third person lately.  Sam keeps calling her Karl Malone.  Today's comment:  "Mom, Halle doesn't want to clean her toy room.  Halle thinks that you should do it."

*We got a new computer!  I am a total Mac girl, and since we had to turn in my iBook laptop, we decided to get the new iMac.  It is totally sweet.  I still need to figure out how to do everything on it.  And a plus, we got a iPod Touch for free.  Now, that is a cool invention.

*We found out that Halle has to get her tonsils taken out.  She has been snoring a lot lately, so I took her in to the pediatrician to rule things out, when I found out that she has HUGE tonsils!  We meet with the Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor on Friday to figure everything out.

*We find out what we are having next Thursday, so stay tuned!

Now that I see everything that has happened this week, maybe my life isn't so boring after all!

Enjoy it for sure. Two makes life much more difficult. Keep us updated on the new little one!

Being home all the time was quite the change for me too! Especially when they put me on bed rest, but I agree with Dede when there is two it is more difficult! Please keep us updated on the baby! I am so happy for you!
