As we all come down a little from our chocolate high- it’s time to think about the weekend. It’s nice that Valentine’s Day was on a Thursday this year- the weekend being that much closer. Or, as I like to call the weekend: I Am Not Alone.
Kicking things off tonight hubs is taking me out to dinner for our belated Valentine’s Day outing. Our sitter wasn’t free until tonight but no matter, you won’t catch me complaining. We love her and can actually go out and not worry that they boys won’t go to bed- they go to bed a million times easier for her. Not fair. As for the rest of the weekend: Saturday I have some serious chicken/head-cut-off running around in order to prepare for my mother in law’s visit on Sunday- and Sunday is GRANDMA DAY.
This past week has indeed been long. There wasn’t any school because of ‘Carnaval’ and the weather was pretty cold, sleety (is that a word?) and just ick- so I’ve been keeping the boys cooped up in this house for days. As I type the boys are playing fort with an afghan so at least their brains haven’t melted completely from the copious amounts on Dora in Dutch. Actually, I tell myself that watching tv isn’t bad at all since all of their shows are in Dutch. So there’s LEARNING going on here.
Anyhow- we have a bunch going on the next week- with Grandma here, school back on- Brody’s 4th birthday (with a school party/graduation that I have to make stuff for) and a trip to Amsterdam before my husband heads to Japan. Why can’t I enjoy the down time when we have it? It’s like I go into guilt mode for not hustling the boys all over the place when it’s not necessary. WHY? Don’t we earn a low-key week once in a while?
I hope you had a great day yesterday and have a fabulous weekend ahead as well!
Do you get that ‘guilt’ feeling over not running around when you don’t have to? What’s the cure?
