By the Numbers

I’ve seen posts in this format around from time to time, and it seemed like a good way to share some of what I’ve been up to and thinking about lately 🙂 If you know where it originated, please let me know so that I can give credit to the creator! 

1 – Number of dead teeth Lucy has after a fall a couple of weeks ago. Her front baby tooth is turning grey and might have to be removed eventually 😦 We’re keeping an eye on it.

1 – Number of books left for me to finish in the Semi-charmed summer book challenge before the end of August. The end is near!! I just finished The Grand Sophy this morning. LOVED it.

2 – Number of months until I fly “home” to Calgary to watch one of my favourite cousins get married. I can’t wait to catch up with some old friends and see my brother & meet his new girlfriend. Brian can’t wait to spend the weekend with the girls at home alone (haha).


3 – Number of days until I get to see my sister, brother in law and favourite baby niece to belatedly celebrate my birthday.

4 – Number of White Collar episodes left for us to watch. We’ll get to it sometime before September, I’m sure.

7 – Number of days in Bad Yogi’s challenge that I started last night. It’s only 15 minutes a day and I have desperately missed yoga this summer!

8 – Number of boxes of old clothes and toys getting donated to Goodwill this weekend from our house.

10 – Number of kilometers in my next race on Sept. 26. I am also thinking of adding in a 5K earlier in September and a second 10K in October.

11 – Number of months left at my current job covering someone’s maternity leave. I am hopeful that I’ll have found something else by the time I finish here if not shortly afterwards.

12 – Number of books on my Netgalley shelf. Gotta get on that after I finish these book challenges.

22 – Number of days until Molly starts kindergarten. I can’t think about it without tearing up. I swear I never used to cry until I had kids & mommy hormones.

31 – Number of years old I turned this past Sunday. It was a pretty low-key birthday but I like taking some time to embrace the year ahead.


45 – Number of minutes I spent swimming laps this morning. I used to swim competitively and I’ve really missed laps in the pool. The Olympics have inspired me to get back out there, so I started today!

47 – Number of times I’ve listened to “Making Due” by the Arkells since first hearing it off their new album. SUCH a catchy song for me. Reminds me a lot of Bruce Springsteen for some reason.

68 – number of books I’ve read so far this year – well on my way to achieving my Goodreads goal without even realizing it.

Hope everyone is having a great week. We are finally getting some much-needed rain in Halifax and I am finally getting some more energy to clean and organize in the evenings, so I’m a happy camper!!
