Asha: A New Chapter


Recommended Posts

Welp..... last challenge went okay, and if I'm being honest, we'll see how active I am with this one. Considering moving everything to my battle log for this one, but at least putting something here just in case.

 

Baby's due date is tomorrow so I've picked some, hopefully, simple goals.

 

Vitamins

As it has been with pretty much all of my challenges, this one is staying again. I didn't do so well with this one last challenge and hope to do better with keeping ontop of things this time.

> To help meet this goal, I plan to count out my vitamins over the weekends.

 

Rest

This one is simple: Rest when possible.

> A lot of resting will be happening when Baby is asleep.

 

Presence

On the opposite side of resting will be existing with and taking care of Baby. The goal here is to remain present and not be distracted by my phone. I'd like to get the time spent on my phone down since it's time I could spend doing other things, especially once Baby's here. lol

 

Book

This one doesn't matter to me so much, but since I've been working on trying to finish The Silmarillion, this will be a goal till I finish it. lol

> Read The Silmarillion at least once a week.

I don't know anything about kids, but I have a feeling you'll have TONS of things to distract you from your phone. Just remember you don't have to be productive 100% of the time. Sometimes it's okay to just give your brain a break and veg out. Good luck!

No kids for me either, but I think Katammers has it right about the phone! 

 

I hope all goes well

Thank you! I figured it probs would be that way, just been way too prone to be on my phone recently.

Still waiting on Baby, but I guess that's normal for firsts. I was told that they tend to come around 41 weeks + 3 days, which would put me at this coming Saturday. Kinda hoping for before then but I suppose we will see.

Didn't count out my vitamins for this week, so it's been a bit difficult to remember to take them. Baby still isn't here so I'm not tracking anything for the other goals yet. Reading.....well.....

Still a work in progress....but getting there. I only have about 40 pages left!!!!!

 

D and I went for a nice walk on Saturday and another good walk Monday. :) It's been getting nicer out and that makes me happy! I'm thankful to have such nice places to go and walk nearby and a nice yard for days I can't/ don't feel like leaving home.

that is a beautiful walk! I love seeing wildflowers. There's something about a creek too, that makes a person feel like a child going on a very big adventure. :D 

It is!!! And the neat part is, I had no clue that park existed till D found it and decided to check it out! And it's like 4 min or so from where I grew up.  Oh, most definitely!!! :)

Tuesday was a good day. Spent some time outside in the evening. It was a pretty chill day; not a whole lot going on. Still waiting on Baby. Really hoping she comes soon! They have an induction schedule, but I'm not entirely sure I want to be induced (as much as I want her here, I'd much rather things happen naturally. lol). I guess we'll see what happens though...

Didn't do real well with vitamins this week. Really need to count them out over the weekend since that seems to help.

Baby is still not here, so I didn't do any tracking with the middle two goals. (Still added a few points per goal since it's not really something I can control. lol)

Reading went well this week. Got some time to read and actually remembered to pull out the Silmarillion! :) I think I have about 40 pages left! (Unfortunately, the percentage read doesn't show that real well because of all the indexing and other things in the back of the book.)

Overall, pretty happy with week one.

----

Had a couple non-stress tests for Baby. She's doing well! Can't wait for her to officially be here though! :)

Baby just needs a couple more days to finesse her plot for world domination. :) 

 

Thanks y'all! She finally decided it was time to come! Baby G entered this world on Tuesday last week and is doing really well. :) ❤️  It still doesn't feel 100% real sometimes, but we're enjoying having her here.

Late update since Baby came this week :) Things are going well and adjusting to having a newborn at home, but it's definitely been a learning curve and tiring.

The weekend was really nice. Saturday was BabyG's first official outing. Sunday D and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary. :) My family was super sweet and gave us a candle lit dinner in a small spot in the house and watched BabyG while we ate and spent that time together. It was very kind of them and was really nice.
