|02:37 pm - So in love|
Wow... I am so in love with my life and everything in it right now.
I won't lie, I am a tad bit overwhelmed with school, but honestly, things could not be better. Gareth and I are both working on our second year of Uni; Ella is finishing grade 1; Milo is learning to speak and becoming an amazingly loving little boy; and Molly feels like she has been here forever!!
I am sure I could not do this degree -- with three children -- if I did not have the constant support from Gareth.
I have downloaded an app on my iphone and can now confirm that it is 1036 days till Gareth and I get to attend our convocation. Also, we have both managed to maintain averages -- so far -- of 80, or higher.
Like I said, things could not be going better.
I want to start attending hot yoga again next month, as soon as funds are a bit better. The only downfall to us both doing school, is that it feels like we are always broke. On a positive note though: we are doing this for a reason; we are fed well; have a warm, safe home; and we will be better off when all is said and done.
Now, time to return to focus.

|07:36 pm - study|
Study time is proving elusive. I think I will go to bed at like 8:30 tonight, so I can wake up super early to study. It seems like the wee hours of the morning might be the only time I can cram over the next few days.
Sunday - Milo's birthday party (38 weeks pregnant)
Monday - last final
Tuesday - midwife appointment, and picking up of birthing pool
Anytime after that is okay for baby to come...

|07:28 am - Vegan Chocolate Cake|
Last night, we made the most delicious vegan chocolate cake. This is in preparation for Mr. Milo's 2nd birthday, that is coming up on the 28th. How exciting is that?!!!
The cake was amazing, as was the vegan buttercream icing. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too?

|10:13 pm - Education|
I got accepted into the Bachelor of Education (k-5) program!! YAY!!! On a side note, I got my grade back for my biology 140 class; I finished with an 83.6%. I got 94.3 on my final exam!! woohoo...
I'm excited that I finally get to start working on education classes. I hear that the program is hard to get into... I'm happy.

|01:53 pm - winter hell|
I cannot wait to escape this place, to a place with no snow.

I am so sick of being pregnant, and sick of being uncomfortable. I'm scared of labor, so this should be fun. Milo is still in our bed most of the time, which makes it difficult to have any alone time, and also will make it difficult when Molly arrives.
Time to crack down!!

|01:59 pm - impatience|
I am patiently - or unpatiently, rather - awaiting the arrival of my application to transfer into the education department. I am pretty darn sure that I will get in, but the waiting is really making me doubt myself. I should know by the beginning of April, although, I want to know now!!! It's honestly driving me nuts.
2013 should be fun...
Molly is on her way, Milo will turn 2, Ella will turn 7, and I will begin my education degree (which I'm finished over half of already).
I am not missing facebook at all!!!

|07:17 pm - Facebook|
I have deleted facebook and subsequently started playing travian again!! arg... I am also trying to study my ass off for this Chinese exam. I got 77 on the last one and was super disappointed. I really do not like the way that facebook controls my life. I am happy to return to livejournal...
On a side now, I am really, really sick of this weather. Where the fuck is spring?

|03:06 pm - timeline|
I thought it would be interesting to try to remember where I was in the years since I was born. Here we go:
1979: Born in Regina, SK on October 3, 1979. Lived on Elphinstone street. My brother was 3 years old. ( Read more...Collapse )

|05:27 pm - wow|
I am 29 weeks pregnant now, and feeling larger than ever. I think Molly will be about the same size as Ella, which makes me less worry some about labor.
My last final is on April 29th, and I am due on May 12th. I hope everything goes to plan, but if it doesn't, we will still be fine.
Gareth and I should both be finished our degrees by the end of 2015, start of 2016 at the latest, and then it is back to Asia. I cannot wait, and should be wishing the days away, but I really cannot wait. It will be super cool to be able to share that wonderful experience with our offspring. It will also be most awesome to be able to afford a maid again. We are planning on going back to the SZ area, which would mean our winter would be minimal.
Cannot wait... anyways, back to the kids. They are currently dancing to pop hits playing through the apple tv.
