Hey guys! How was your weekend? Ours was good: Finally, a weekend in 2017 without a bug sweeping through the family. Huge victory!
It felt as though my weekend started on Friday as I was able to commute down to work with Phil. We actually work just a few blocks from one another, which works well for lunch dates. However, to minimize Mitch’s time at daycare, Phil goes into work early and leaves early and I go in later and leave later.
But Friday had us starting our days at the same place, so it only made sense to drive together. I literally thought the entire drive how much I miss one on one time with Phil. As parents, were highly distracted by Mitch. But the drive down was smooth sailing with great conversation and coffee.
I’ve always been a morning workout person, but after a week of being sick my energy was low. The extra sleep and test trumped 5am workouts. When I saw a 6:30pm class I decided to give it a try. I’m not sure if it was the instructor Will or my excitement to be back working out, but it was amazing!
Saturday started with a family outing for breakfast and errands. I’m telling you, after five days being house-bound, being out felt amazing. The weather was also spectacular hitting the mid fifties. So refreshing and just what we all needed.
We headed home for Mitch’s nap and then shortly after I headed out for lunch with a girlfriend. It was so good to spend the afternoon catching up with a good friend who has been out of town lately. She recently had surgery, so I headed to her house with lunch. The few hours flew by- definitely the sign of a good time!
The day ended with take out and a movie on the couch. A perfect day for the mind, body and soul.
The bliss ran out around 4am Sunday morning when Mitch decided to “wake-up” for the day. We spent the next two hours putting him back to bed. Finally, at 7am he fell back asleep as did Phil, but I was up and ready to go. I’m really bad with broken sleep and would rather stay up.
I spent the next few hours working on the computer with a pot of coffee near by. To my surprise, both of the boys slept until 9am! We celebrated with French toast for brunch.
Not long after our stomachs were full, we were back outside.
Sunday rolled by and by 4pm after three hours of attempts, we threw the towel in on Mitch’s nap. Despite our efforts, he was wide awake. I guess that’s what happens when you get a good nights rest!
Then we spent time wishing my dad a happy (early) birthday on FaceTime. His birthday is today, but Mitch was too excited to wait. Birthdays are turning into quite the thing for him. Songs, cake and friends- he’s down.
We all headed to bed early hoping to actually catch some zzzs.
How was your weekend? What was the best part? What’s the weather like where you live?
