The Summer so Far in Numbers

1 Baby shower to have next Friday hosted by friends.

20 days until Rhys’s due date.

1 townhome rented in Sandy with 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, 1 fireplace, and 1 washer/dryer set


1050 square feet of living space in Sandy compared to 450 square feet.


2 more Sundays in our ward (local congregation). We’ll miss our friends!

12 more days until FantasyCon in Salt Lake City and the chance to meet John Rhys-Davies, Billy Boyd, and Sean Astin!

14 books I’d like to read, but in reality, probably only 3 of them will be finished.

20 more episodes of How I Met Your Mother and then Justin and I are finished with the season.

5 blog posts twirling around in my head, wanting and waiting to be written.

Before 8:30AM is when we have woken up every day so far this summer.

4 weeks of maternity leave I have set up for the beginning of the school year. And, being the Type A teacher I am, am not excited about leaving my students (who will be the same from last year, just a grade older) in the hands of a substitute for a month!

8 more weeks of summer, which means 5 weeks of summer I get to spend with Rhys!

20 minutes spent writing this post because I kept getting distracted by watching Justin play his videogame.

  • 20 days?! Oh my gosh, you're getting so close to meeting your little man! Enjoy these last few weeks to the fullest!

  • Leaving my students, my babies! with a long term sub was so hard. I searched and searched for just the right girl. I found her, she was awesome and I wrote her nice detailed lesson plans (it helped that I'd been working on them for the past couple of years). Two days into maternity leave and I couldn't care less. My brain didn't start working again until Olivia was three months old 🙂
