  • My pregnancy is going well so far (*knocks on wood*). I’m 17 weeks along and getting very eager to hit the half-way 20-week milestone! We have another visit with our midwife in a few weeks and so far we’re still planning another home birth for this baby. I also have another ultrasound scheduled for the end of March (around 22 weeks) and I’m super eager for that!
  • finally made some updates to my freelance business website! It’s still just a single long-scroll landing page, but I gave it a makeover and it already feels a lot more “me”. I’ve also got a Good Notes notebook full of ideas about new packages and services and how to market them. I’m setting a goal to re-launch the updated site on my birthday, February 24th.
  • Goats. I have NO IDEA how our kidding season is going to go. I have due dates on the calendar that I feel good about for 2, maybe 3, of our does. The rest? NOT A CLUE. I’ve had the girls penned with the bucks, but I haven’t witnessed any breeding going on. I’ve decided to leave them with the bucks till February and then hope for the best. Spring is going to be interesting.

📺 Watching | We just finished Bonding on Netflix. Super not child-appropriate, but very entertaining! 

🎧 Listening | I haven’t been listening to much music lately, and I’ve been mostly listening to the same ol’ podcasts.

📷 Gear | My Christmas gift to myself: an iPad Air and Apple Pencil 2. I am SO happy with this purchase. I’ve started taking all my notes digitally in Good Notes (which I much prefer over Notability) and I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
I also gave in and ordered a new ASUS ZenWiFi AX mesh wifi system. I’m gagging over the price tag, but we’ve been through huge hassles with our current mesh system (long story–perhaps I’ll blog about it later) and I’ve just HAD IT. These are supposed to be delivered Wednesday. I can’t wait to install them and test.

📱 App | I’m almost ashamed to admit this, but I’ve become a TikTok-fiend, almost to the total exclusion of every other social media platform. I haven’t created much of anything on there, but I really enjoy following creators that post content related to politics and current events (marcus.dipaola, j.dkon, chasingoz/backthatozup, paddythepanda, and of course north_omaha_cat_lady), arts and crafts (persinable, artistcolette), and Pyrex collectors (bakerbettie, pyrex_girl, billiebillieb).
