Life has been moving along at a pretty rapid pace over the past several weeks. I thought I’d take the opportunity to share a brief update.
Two weeks ago Larissa and I moved into a new two-bedroom suite in one of Victoria’s suburbs. We have at least three times as much floor space here, and we love it!
In addition to going from a single bedroom to two bedrooms, we also now have a separate kitchen and living room, a small dining room, and an office for me to work in.
Getting out of downtown has been nice for a lot of different reasons. For one, there’s no street noise outside when we’re trying to go to sleep. Larissa used to wake up sometimes from all the cars streaming past after the bars closed. Another benefit is that it’s so much nicer to go for walks in and around all the little suburbs and winding streets. We’re only a 15-minute walk away from the beach, too.
We took advantage of all the extra space this weekend to have a bunch of friends over for a combined board game night and DISCOVERY prerelease party. (Sneaky little writing update: I sent in the order for the first print run of DISCOVERY on Saturday. I should be able to start sending out people’s orders by the end of the month.)
Of course, the main reason we moved was so that we would have space for Baby. It’s only three weeks until Larissa’s due date! We went on a hospital tour last week and got to see the facilities where Baby will be welcomed into the world. It made a few things seem a lot more “real” for me. I’m getting so excited for that day to come.
I’ve been telling Larissa that one of the things I’m really looking forward to is sitting on the couch holding Baby while I’m watching playoff hockey later in April. Gotta get the kid started on the right foot, eh? Go Canucks go!
