This weekend was the most "normal" weekend Jared and I have had in awhile. The past few have been a total blur but this weekend we got back to a few normal things we typically do and it felt great! It definitely made me feel a little more sane and like maybe we can actually raise a tiny human while still participating in everyday life too ;) It was nothing too eventful, but it was good all the same.
I actually popped into my office at work for about an hour and a half Friday morning. Trust me- they won't be seeing me again for weeks BUT because I left in such a hurry, I knew there were a dozen unresolved things left on my desk. I don't think I've mentioned it yet since I haven't written an actual birth story or anything, but I left work on May 25th for a normal, afternoon visit to the doctor and found out they wanted to induce me that night- so I never made it back to the office. And my boss was on vacation when this all went down. Anyway, I didn't want to worry about work for the rest of my leave so a quick meeting with my boss was just what I needed to do.
Saturday we finally had NO plans, NO visitors and NO WHERE to be. Can I get an amen for that?! Jared snuck out early and surprised me with some doughnuts from our favorite bakery but after that we lazied around all morning and took our time getting up for the day.
Once we were up and at 'em Jared and I took care of some much needed to-do's around the house. While he mowed the lawn and took care of some yardwork, I caught up on the laundry and finally gave my kitchen the cleaning that it needed. We also started another donation box and added some new things to get rid of- which you all know by now is one of my favorite things to do. That night? We started possibly the most difficult puzzle I've ever seen, put some Frank Sinatra on the record player and just enjoyed each other's company while T snoozed away.
Like I said, it felt good to feel "normal" and to be doing things we did before life got so crazy. Taking care of ourselves, our home and our marriage are all important things that I know will seem routine again one day- but for right now we have to remind ourselves to tend to them! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and CHEERS to the first day of summer!
