September already!

Anyone having cooler weather yet? Not here. Well, I guess it's slightly cooler, but that still means lower 90's.

What's everyone got going on in September?

Not cooler here yet either

My SIL's wedding is in 2.5 weeks. It is 5 hours away and we are bringing L. Should be interesting especially the long car ride with a baby who HATES the car. I am planning on it taking double the time to get there.

We haven't hit the cooler weather yet, although it is getting cooler at night.

My big plan for the month:turning in my notice at work......I think......if I can get up the nerve to do it.

It's not cooler here yet but later on in the week it's supposed to cool off. I really don't look forward to cooler weather though....I love the summer! Here in Canada summer is so short unfortunately! As far as anything going on this month....nothing that I know off. Just kids starting school tomorrow.

I can't think of anything out of the ordinary going on this month. I know once October hits, it'll be non stop all throughout the holidays and into January for us, so I'm hoping to get organized, get the house clean, get some early Christmas shopping done, etc. We'll see.

Somewhat cooler, mostly at night, plans this month. Well we have our annual Rendezvous the last weekend of the month. other than that nothing really planned, may take a trip over to see my grandmother (just an hour and a half away) so we will see.

Oh wow...so would you be staying home then, or finding a new job?

Hope it goes well! Our 3.5 hour trip turned into 5 hours on the way there, between stops for the two girls. At least a couple of times we had to stop simply for cuddles.

:/ Day 2 of spottting & a lovely drop in milk supply. Ugh. I was really hoping AF would stay away longer, but it's not looking good.

Oh no! Yuck. I hope your supply doesn't drop too quick! I know you've said you have a ton frozen at least.

I would be staying home. With hubby working as many hours as he is (2 full-time jobs, plus a few other shifts other places, and some OT at each of the full-time jobs), it's just silly at this point. And day care is outrageous. And I found there is absolutely no way for me to get everything done that needs done in 3 days. I thought I had free time when I worked full time, which I supposed I did, but not as much as I thought I did. I'm just having a hard time letting go. I WANT to be home, but at the same time, we have a new boss who is finally wanting to make all these changes I've wanted to make for a few years, and I would like to see that through. And I'm not crazy about not having my own income coming in to do what I want with it. However, I am doing some work for my dad's business. I think it can all pull together, but I just need to get there mentally. And I'm tired of crying every day on my way to work.

Well good for you! I hope it works out well.
So glad it's Friday! I forgot how much AF backaches suck. :/

True...I do have a good stash, thankfully. I know last time, my supply would drop right before AF, and then would bounce back. But during that dip, I'd have a tough time pumping enough.

Long day! 2 hours of overtime, whiney toddler, and lots on my plate. I'm going to attempt to work out now...if I can drag myself off the couch.

Thai- So was it in fact your period returning? I'm dreading that day.

Things I'm pleased about: the weather is feeling decidedly like fall, we're in a nice little groove lately, my annual troupe belly dance show was fantastic last weekend, I'm slowly getting motivation and productivity back at the office

Things I'm less than pleased about: tomorrow is going to shoot up like 25+ degrees with tons of humidity which is going to blow, I haven't been putting myself to bed at reasonable times which is stupid, Ingrid has been waking more which doesn't help, my nose is about to fall off from allergies

Well, this is day 8 of spotting, so...I don't know. I'm betting that this is just a super light AF, and that she'll be back in full force before too long. :/

That stinks! I would rather just have af and it be over than spotting for over a week
It is supposed to 100 degrees here today! Yuuuuck!! It is already disgusting at 9am. Then it is supposed to be in the 60s from here on out, super weird weather

^ ugh I know. ..it stinks. Seems to have finally stopped though.

Flat tire this morning, work was crazy, and had to take my mom to the doctor. Now I'm home and have a grumpy 3 year old. Is it bedtime yet? Lol.

So I was supposed to have jury duty back ib June. Got it deferred because Anna hadn't started daycare yet and I was EBF. got my letter this week...supposed to go in November. I'm going to request either pumping breaks or another deferral.

On a sort of related topic, two of my employees have jury duty now, one did back in May, and one will in October.

My sister's family is coming to town today to stay with us for the week. I'm excited to see them, and for them to meet Anna! I may not be around as much, though.
