Where'd my leave go?

I had quite the mental list of things I was going to do while on maternity leave to ward off boredom.  Lots of sewing with the baby in the bouncy seat watching me, visiting my sister in Pennsylvania, cleaning the house, visiting my old job just to chat, and loads more.  I told my boss he'd see me on email a lot since I'll have time to kill and I needed to redesign the school website.

Ask me how much of that was done.  None.

Preparing for travel

Yesterday we took OJ to turn in his passport paperwork.  I was so impressed by the woman at the post office who took our application.  She had us in and out in less than 10 minutes, I was shocked and pleased.  OJ decided that he was starving as soon as we got there and was screaming his head off until I gave him a bottle, luckily I had one ready to go.  It's not often that I can say that the post office was efficient but Kimberly at our branch was quite helpful.  Now we just have to wait for it to arrive.  I was a little unnerved giving them his brand new birth certificate but that's what you have to do.

So, in 4-6 weeks it should arrive in the mail, I hope, before we are scheduled to leave for vacation.  Ahh vacation... I can't wait!

Baby hog

Oh how I wish I had a fun new post to share but alas, I have been crazy busy with the new baby.  I keep waiting to settle into a routine but it's still pretty much chaos and he's the type that doesn't like to be set down anywhere so I spend all of my time caring for my little bundle of joy in my arms.  I have lots of crafts in my head that I plan to work on and once things even out a bit I will be able to get started on it.

Many will likely revolve around baby. Just a warning.
