So I guess I am falling into a once-a-month routine with writing here. I think I’ll just embrace it. 🙂 So here are the updates for March!
Earlier this month, we got back from a week-long trip down to Florida (my first time visiting that particular state)! Trevor’s parents were renting a house down there for the month, and invited us to come stay for a bit. It was a nice trip.
Wesley is not nearly as easy to manage on a plane as he was the last time we flew. He was only 4 months old then, and he was awesome, mostly slept. He did okay, but now he’s a big strong writhing ball of kiddo, and it’s harder to keep him happy in our laps for any length of time. Next time we fly, even if he’s not 2 yet, we’re getting him his own seat for sure.
Southwest Florida is nice, but if the weather isn’t super hot (it was warm, but not beach-going-hot most of the time we were there) there’s not a lot to do. We did some shopping and did visit the beach, but mostly we stayed at the house. This was actually a good thing, though, because it was nice to be able to just sit and read as much as we did. Going outside without coats on was a huge plus as well (and spring would do well to arrive here anytime now!)
Work has gotten nice and busy the past few weeks! Lots of exciting projects on the go. That, combined with singing holy week services for choir means I’m looking at a pretty busy upcoming week, but it should be good. I’m looking forward to the long weekend from work though. Also in the work category, a presentation that a co-worker and I proposed for a conference got accepted, so we’ll be doing a presentation in May! Should be good.
I got in touch with Family and Children’s Services about volunteering, and went for an interview there recently. It’s a really amazing organization, and I’m kind of fascinated with their programs. I have to do some paperwork and training before I can be a proper volunteer, but I’m pretty excited. I also got to see a presentation about another awesome local organization called Strong Start, and I’m really blown away by their programs as well, and hopefully will be able to help them out in some way. So many cool things happening here, if only I had unlimited time to volunteer!
Speaking of volunteering, I’ve been asked to be the costumer for a show that’s going up next year, so I’m pretty stoked about that. Hooray for costuming, my biggest theatre love! I might have to get a tuneup on my sewing machine- it’s been running pretty clunkily for a bit. It’s a really sweet workhorse of a machine- one of the older Singer school machines that have decent speed and are more heavy duty than what is produced now.
TedX is next week as well (falling during my busy week of busyness)! I’m really stoked about going, especially since I went last year and I know a little better what to expect. I hope that the talks are super inspiring!
