Just realized my last post was in early June and to be honest – nothing exciting has happened since then. I think that’s also the last time I probably washed the car too. I haven’t had much time for the car all year other than driving it to and from work. I’m happy with where it is now and I just want to enjoy it – so no big updates for me to post. I’ve been enjoying Overwatch lately and been nerding out on video cards and a new mouse and now I want a mechanical keyboard. Why do I get addicted to expensive hobbies? It’s great. Diana watches her TV shows, I play Overwatch – it’s a great time.
I will say though that it’s mind-boggling that it’s been almost a year since Aria has been born – she’s almost 11 months – which is crazy because I remember sitting in this exact same spot I am now and writing about how great it was that she was just born. Time flies! This also means that Diana is off maternity leave soon and going back to work – it’s bittersweet, really – mainly because I think Diana is torn between leaving Aria after being with her 24/7 everyday for a year and finally going out and doing adult things. I get it, but at the same time I don’t – I’ve been going to work everyday since she’s been born so I know what it’s like to have to leave Aria, but leaving her with someone else is the stressful part after the year mark. Will she be OK? Will she eat properly? Will she nap properly? Will she miss me? At the end of the day, she’s really just staying with Diana’s mom so it’s not terrible by any means – but no matter how good the caregiver, you can’t help but wonder these things.
Anyway, the point I’m trying to get at with this post is that Diana is back to work and that means I have my sugar momma back which means it’s time to start shopping for car parts LOL! Let’s be honest – maternity leave is a great thing and it’s something we take for granted in Canada – but the money is not. It’s not terrible, but it’s not going to have you laughing at the bank for a year, that’s for sure.
I have some small plans for the car over the rest of the year and probably into winter – so hopefully those go into motion soon. Until then, I will be a hermit and I’ll be playing Overwatch for quite some time. I’m not dead – I just have no updates. Don’t count me out yet – it’ll just be realllllllll slow around here for a bit.
