A stay-at-home mom-to-be.

I stayed home alone this weekend by choice. Perhaps it is a testament to my increasingly strong nesting urges, or maybe I just needed some time alone (very rare that this happens!)

Peter has gone up to spend time with his parents, Morgan and the Bryants at Tigh-na-mara and I'm sure they're having a lovely romp up there. I would have enjoyed going too, but I needed a weekend to defragment and get caught up on my work. Besides, the cat needs some quality attention.

So far my weekend has gone to very good use, despite my feeling a bit under the weather.I must be fending off a mild stomach bug that's been going around the school, so I'm planning on getting some R&R tomorrow when all my cleaning, marking and errands are done. I've been up since 7 this morning. Some may call it insanity to get up that early on a Saturday, but I'm calling it proactive productivity - standing on the brink of June madness once again, I'm busy sewing my parachute all weekend...

By the way, for all those who have inquired, the recital on Wednesday went really well! I enjoyed myself this year and relished every moment of performing. It was a tiring evening after the fact, but me and the baby were running on adrenaline the whole time. Pictures are coming tomorrow, if I get all my not-fun work done.

I had lots of friendly faces in the crowd, which always makes me happy: Peter, my mom-in-law, Selena, Beanie and Bethany all made it out to brave the stuffy theatre and long evening of listening to Middle-Eastern music.

I will miss performing this summer, but I am also looking forward to being the "programme girl" at Butchart Gardens while my troupemates perform in July. There's a lot less pressure on you when you're just responsible for handing out programmes! Oh yes, and I have plans to make another costume this summer... could be fun!

Next week I will be entering my 3rd trimester and I'll tell you all about that later...
