Back to the Grind

Well it looks like I am finally back to work. Yesterday I was introduced to the team that I will be working with and got to go to a couple of meetings that pertained to the project that we will be working on.

I was so happy to finally get to sit with them and take a look at what they have been doing and what is expected of me. How pathetic am I to actually want to work but if I have nothing to do and just surf the web all freaking day it gets SO BORING.

I am one of those persons that though I can spend an entire day at home doing absolutely nothing and love it, I just can't do that at work. So work is fine and only fine. There are still some things that I have to iron out with management but overall I am finally starting to get back in the swing of things. I am also starting to get used to going on the TTC (Toronto subway) during rush hour and walking with the herd of people to The Bank.

Yesterday the Sexy dropped off the baby at day care and left my new stroller there for me to use when I picked her up. Can you believe it that I looked forward to picking up my child not just because I would get to see her but because I would get to use the cool new stroller. How terrible is that. I felt so cool using the new stroller and not having to use the carrier with a squirmy 11-month old. The important thing is that I can now wear uncomfortable shoes to work because I don't have to use the carrier. Hurray for me.

Well I guess that I should go and see if anyone from my team is in and get to work.

Momma got a new set of wheels

Today I purchased what I believe is the best stroller ever. I had said that I would buy the Maclaren but I did some more research and found out about the Silver Cross strollers. They are the competitors to Maclaren but a little bit cheaper.

So La Preciosa has new wheels, it is so cool. What a difference it is to puch this stroller as opposed to the SUV that I was pushing before.

Thats all folks, till tomorrow.

Under Construction

If anyone knows me, they know that I am not computer savy at all. Which means that it will take me a long time to get this blog to look quite decent. So for the time being if you do visit my site I apologize for the way that it looks.

The Sexy is an IT consultant and a wizz with all things techy but this blog is my baby and I feel like I should learn how to make it my own by myself. That is all that I have to say on the issue of the crappy looking blog that I currently have at the moment.

Yesterday I went in search of the perfect umbrella stroller and I think that I found it. I have high demands when it comes to the umbrella stroller which could be were the problems lies but it is what it is. I needed one that was light so that I could pick up the stroller with baby in it and go down subway stairs. It had to be compact because I have storage issues and if possilbe it should have a basket because I live in a neighborhood where you walk to the grocery store, the butcher etc.

Those where my demands and I tell you there is slim picking out there people. At least if you are not willing to spend over $200 for a freaking umbrella stroller. So I think I found it, The Maclaren Volo. Not the cheaperst thing but not the most expensive and it meets my three criteria. I found it at Toys so I will head out later today to pick it up.

In the Beginning

I have finally gotten off my ass to start the blog that I have wanted to start for a long time now. I will begin by introducing myself to all of you, I am Karz (names changed to protect person's identity). My husband The Sexy and I have been married for 4 years but together for over 10. We have a daughter La Preciosa who will be a year in less then a month.

She was the real reason why I wanted to start a blog and how I even came to know about blogs, before her I had no idea about such things (I am so behind the times) and frankly my life was just not that exciting.

Now as a new mother life is certainly exciting to say the least. But I will not bore you will all of the detail of my first year as a mother just yet. Right now I have returned to the working world, it was my first week back at the Bank and like any large financial intitution no one was ready for me. So I did nothing all week long.

I am not sure if I am happy to be back at work or not. I did not like the fact that I did nothing for 5 days and was bored out of my mind. But I am looking forward to getting paid again because mat leave money was just not enough.

That in a nut shell is what happened this week, not very interesting I know but it is what it is. I hope to have more interesting things to say as time goes by. Now I am going to have to say goodbye and nice to meet you because La Preciosa is going down for a nap and I am going to get something to eat.

If you would like to leave me a shout please do so.

Till next time...
