Take Two.

Here’s a breakdown of my life in numbers, currently.

2 days until I turn 30.
31 weeks and 3 days pregnant with 1st baby g.
Just under 9 weeks to go.
5 weeks until maternity leave begins.
3 weeks of me actually being in work until maternity leave begins.
Anxiety levels currently at about 8 out of 10 for about 101 different reasons.
Absolutely zero clue what-the-hell I am doing with my life right now.
Approximately one half of a modicum of sanity left.

I’ve managed to do absolutely nothing with this for a while now and with my impending tricennial I thought maybe I should try to get this ball rolling again. So, I figured let’s start this off with an easy exercise and a good getting-to-know-you tool.  Who doesn’t love a good online survey or two!
