News at Home: COVID Quarantine Week 13
Well this week went by in a blur. Since it’s my last week on the current position I had a lot of close out tasks to take care of. Just things that I thought I’d have 1 more week to do so I had to pack in a lot in 1 week. I actually still have a few more videos to edit today. I”m really looking forward to starting my new position tomorrow and I think it’s going to be pretty easy going next week. It’s very weird starting a new position from home… I’m not really sure what I’ll be doing all day. I think I will not be too busy.
Monday Dante’s baby prison finally arrived :). I joke, but that’s basically what it is and boy did we need it! I leave the door open when he’s playing and I can be right here with him. But when I need to step away, it’s so nice to just close the gate, leave him happily playing and take care of what I need to. I even got more work done this way. I also finally got him a book case! He’s a little book lover with tons of books – so it was needed. And he’s already loving looking in it for books.

Got Dante a baby prison this week and it’s been amazing to know he’s playing safely when I can’t be right next to him. Most the time I leave the door open and am right here, but when I need to do soemthing, 8 shut the door and he just keeps playing happily. And we also got our future book worm a bookcase for all his books (he already has so many). I liked this one because he can see them and get them himself. And he’s already enjoying picking out his books ❤️.
Tuesday was my birthday and my husband made me think he forgot (I’m still not sure if he didn’t forget and did a good job fixing it?). So I was kinda sad all day, thinking he forgot. Then he came home from work with a beautiful bouquet of roses and one of my favorite bottles of wine. And he ordered my favorite sushi for dinner. So turned into a pretty great day. I drank a bit too much of my wine and passed out lol! I can only drink 1 glass anymore before it gets to me.
Wednesday we had a playdate! I have a couple really good friends (Crystal and Melissa) – we spend all day, every day in a group text – and they each have 2 kids. Between us we have: 6 year old boy (Melissa’s boy – Michael Jr), 5 year old girl (Crystal’s girl – Beril), 3 year old girl (Crystal’s Girl- Beyza), 18 month boy (Melissa’s boy – Mason), and 8 month boy (Mine – Dante). We’ve been missing each other so much these months and the older kids were missing each other too. And Melissa was having surgery Friday, so we knew we had a limited window to try and get together. It was so much fun! I especially loved watching Dante interact – last time we got together he was too young, but this time he really wanted to play. Here’s a few pictures from the day!

The rest of the week was just work and watching Dante and pretty normal. Yesterday I went to the office and cleaned out my area. It was kinda sad, I was so happy there. But thankfully I have a new position and I think I will be happy there as well. And my plants survived, so that was a big yay!!!
Okay I’m not doing great at blogging. Just had a lot of work to do. I actually think I might do better this week since my stepson is coming over to watch Dante. I guess it will depend how much work I have to do? I’m really hoping I can start to establish some work patterns this week that I can carry on in the weeks to come that include blogging and eating better (because that’s been awful)… and maybe even some real workouts!
