I know you won’t believe this, but Brian is home from his business trip.
Yes, I said already. The weekend flew by, it even freaks me out a little bit at how the entire five days are a total blur. Well, maybe not all of them but 90% of it.
We did so much and that makes me pretty proud of myself. Friday night we went to a Matilda Jane Trunk Show where I splurged on a dress for Anna, then my best friends came over and they held Eli while I drank a beer and finally relaxed. But I went to bed at 1:30 and Eli woke up at three something, the night was short but totally worth it.
On Saturday, the kids and I went to a European Market, it was so much fun. That’s where I bought the flowers you see at the top of this post. We went to a park later in the day and then ordered pizza. On Sunday, I was officially worn out, I could not keep my eyes open, it was definitely the most difficult day of them all. LUCKILY, my parents came over and held Eli while I took a nap and then they made dinner. It was fantastic.
After weeks and weeks of trying to pinpoint Elijah’s fussy problem, I decided to call his pediatrician yesterday morning. When we arrived I was so happy to see that he had gained 2 pounds from his birth weight, he’s getting so big. The doctor diagnosed him with reflux and medication has begun.
I am so hopeful.
My Mom came over and watched Anna and Noah while Eli and I headed to his appointment, when we came home I found that she had folded two loads of laundry and she didn’t just fold two loads of laundry but she folded them perfectly. She made me realize that maybe I just don’t know how to fold laundry and maybe she should always fold my laundry or train me? I’m sure she taught me when I was a teenager but I was probably too busy thinking about more important things like what time my boyfriend was going to pick me up in his Pinto.
Anyway, I have obsessed over her laundry folding since she left yesterday and I’m wondering if your Mom is a better folder than you? I’m thinking I really suck at it but not as bad as Brian but not nearly as good as my Mom. (I should take a picture but I am so lazy.)
So, I’m feeling inspired again. Inspired to make my house pretty, inspired to declutter and reorganize and inspired to also become a better folder. (I promise, I am not talking about folding laundry because of the name of my blog.)
In general, I’m just excited that Brian is home, safe. I’m excited to have some time to myself.
And tomorrow, I’m joining Weight Watchers, I guess I’m excited about that, too.
What are you excited about?
