Isn't it funny how we set our minds on something and then when it goes differently you are thrown off? Well that is what happened to me when Connor was born before his due date! I mean really? I was all prepared for a mid-March baby:)
So let's re-cap February... You know I had my 50th birthday, as the party was in January, but I had many more lunches, suppers and even a wonderful overnight trip to Banff with Don. All in all it was perfect. Blake and Em wanted to have a birthday cake for me, and that was a great end to the celebrations in general.
It was a pretty low key month for us. We made our annual trek to the Edmonton RV show, one evening by ourselves, and one day with Tracy, Cal and kids. That was enough exercise for all!
Connor was born on Tuesday February 28 as you know, and Don and I stayed until Thursday. Jeremy's mom is staying with them this week, and I will return there for a few days. I am fortunate as my job is portable as long as I don't have any meetings, so that gives me the ability to stay with Lindsay. We will get her through to the end of two weeks and then they can have their house to themselves:) It is nice to have help but as I remember also nice to have your house to yourself and find a routine.
March 1 was my deadline for submitting my first draft of the Wood Buffalo project. I am very nervous about this as it is quite new for me, but I am also very proud of this first draft, and excited to see the additions and deletions and the final document we agree to. I am amazed at how many hours I put into research and writing. With the 2 contracts I have been BUSY.
My Volunteer Alberta contract on the KnowledgeConnector project draws to the end of its 15 month term, and it is hard not to look forward to April and a south holiday for a few weeks. Don has not been on the road this month, but that is OK, as he is retired! Some small contracts are on the radar for the spring.
March will see us back in Fort McMurray at least once to visit Connor and his mom and dad.
Have a great March, maybe April will see more blog activity as we travel the south:)
