I have decided to slow things down a little bit. I put in my notice at the fitness studio,
which is bitter sweet 'cause I love my classes, but this will allow me more time to myself!
June 17th will be my last day teaching fitness classes but I may begin to attend them
as a participant instead, it will be fun to FINALLY be on the other side!
I have only 2 birth clients left, one due now and the other in 2 weeks, once those little
ones are born I am officially off my out of home work. I will still have lots of desk work
to do for my company and some business meetings but that doesn't take too much of
my energy. It's going to be weird (and finically draining) to be without pay for 2 months
before the baby is born, but with the type of work I do I really feel I had no other option.
Like you ladies were saying, I needed to take the advice I would give my clients and I
tell all my clients to take as much time off before the birth as possible. Besides, who
knows if I will ever get this opportunity again, I really need to just enjoy this time,
respect myself and pamper this active little one.
In other news, we have been thinking of names. We had two names picked out when we
were convinced we were having twins but now that there is just one little bean I don't
really want to use one of them and not the other. My husband is greek so we need to use
a name that can be baptized in the orthodox church (or at least translated to do so) but
that has made things a bit more challenging.
My husbands favorite name is Leonidas, which I find to be a bit 'too much' of a name,
although I do really like the name Leo. We have both kinda agreed on Gabriel BUT
whenever I bring it up to people they say it sounds like a girls name, but the nick
name Gabe sound very strong to me and I REALLY don't think it sounds feminine at all.
The 3rd option we have is Theodore, which I like only if shortened to Theo NOT Teddy
but I'm not really convinced. So if anyone out there know of some really great greek
names that can be easily translated or shortened to a fun canadian name I would love
your input, or even some input on our top 3. Jonathan would be the middle name
after my grandfather, the greek translation is Yanni.
The girls name has already been chosen and will be revealed when she arrives, if she
is a she. We both agreed to this name, it translates well, so we locked it in!!
