I'm Back.

Good news, it's officially AUTUMN! I'm also back from a bit of a break from everything. I keep disappearing for a while, to recoup. Life just gets in the way sometimes and can  be a bit  overwhelming.

Autumn is by far my favourite time of the year.

 Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and the leaves are changing. Maybe it's the time of year, but I find that autumn always brings me back down to earth. Yay for enjoying the season!
Pumpkin spice everything, apples, pumpkins, and pumpkin carving, sweater weather and going for nice walks without sweating buckets. My kind of thing.
I had my first official pumpkin spice Frapp from Starbuck's the other day. My husband calls fall pumpkin spice season.... on this he is correct.

Enough about my excitement for fall, onto updates on what's been going on lately.
Our daughter is turning 4 in January... where has the time gone? We started potty training a couple of months ago. It's an ongoing battle, ( might I add, my husband has been doing most of the hard potty training ) I'm so grateful for that, since I'm always working. Our daughter has picked up going on the big potty instead of her toddler sized potty. I know, you all really want to hear about this. Hah!

A while ago I mentioned that our daughter started going to speech therapy. I think it's been about a year and a half of it. There was a gap of time where she wasn't attending, due to the speech therapist wanting to wait until September and then reassess her. I have a love, hate relationship with this. Long story short, we took our daughter back for a reassessment and we had a new speech therapist ( who was condescending and a little rude. ) Our daughter is a bit behind with words, and sentence structure, but it's a work in progress. She's had almost two weeks off from her appointments, and they start up again next week. Her speech has improved greatly, and we are working daily on her sounds, alphabet and numbers. She'll get there, I know she has it, just needs to pay attention to what she's doing. She gets so excited sometimes that her words turn into a big mumble jumble. I'm so proud of how far she's come from  a year ago though. My little pumpkin.

I've been blogging for Geeks and Geeklets as well, in my LOA from blogging here on my own blog. I've been posting recipes, book reviews, etc. I enjoy it and love the Geeks and Geeklets community. Head over and check them out. There's plenty for geeks, all around.

I have gotten back into reading lately, and didn't realize how much I missed it, until I started taking a book to work during my breaks. I'm currently reading Kushiel's Dart ( one of my close friends favourite series ) so I thought I'd give it a try. I finished Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and have a list of others I can't wait to start, Including : MaddAddam, The Hunger Games ( guilty pleasure), NeverNight, Throne of Glass, Why Not Me?, Furiously Happy, and more.  What books are you currently enjoying?

Legion has been released, so I have been leveling and gearing my main toon in World of Warcraft. This Sunday and Monday that just passed was our first night back to the raiding grind with my guild, in the Emerald Nightmare. I'm currently loving this expansion, it's so pretty and there are endless things to do.

What have you guys been up to the last couple of months? Anyone else playing Legion and loving/ hating it? Thoughts?

  1. Don't stress too much about your daughter's speech. You have gotten on top of it early, and that is such a big win! My eldest didn't start until he was five years old. It was a struggle at times because we were trying to break some long-set bad habits, but he got there in the end and he got discharged from the program at the start of this year.

    I totally hear you about potty training! My daughter is also training at the moment - and it's also my husband who has to deal with the vast majority of it! I'm pretty thankful for that :P

    I'm loving Legion! I'm hating how little I get to play though. Being an adult sucks sometimes.

  2. Thank you Neri.
    It's hard not to stress though. We received her evaluation in the mail the other day and it was less than pleasing. We're hoping that it gets easier for her. She was singing "Hakuna Matata" in the car yesterday, so her vocabulary is improving. I appreciate the kind words and support :). That's awesome that your son got discharged from the program!

    The potty training, is going really well. She's doing it on her own most days now! How is it coming for you guys?

    Legion is pretty amazing, when we both get time in game we should hang out!
