All Better

My terrible day on Friday turned into a joyful one as I got news that my niece, Carter Nichole, was born. That’s what babies do. Bring joy to the disheartened. And Carter couldn’t have come at a better time! The rest of the weekend was uneventfully eventful — just the way I like it.

The Husband made me breakfast two days in a row, we did some cardiovascular exercise on the beach, drank spiked iced coffees on the patio and napped with the animals. The Husband also participated inΒ  another cycling race and studied finance and other smart stuff while I stayed up way too late watching The World According to Paris and eating sunflower seeds. I’m back to normal!

    P.S. On the lookout for girls names in case this no.3 turns up a girl? Did she have any other favourites?

    • Congrats Tracey! Unfortunately, they kept their baby name choices a secret so I don’t know what else they had in mind. I would give you some of my fav baby names, but I doubt you want your children to sound like X-Men characters πŸ˜‰
