If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you thank you. Thank you for being there for me this week. This week where I wondered how I was going to do it all, when life got too chaotic that I couldn’t think. This week when I was beyond down and you lifted me up.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would say how cool it was that you managed to get together five of our friends for a meal (without a child on my lap). I would tell you my husband cracked up when I was home just after 9pm on a Saturday night and his friends where still there doing our version of guys night in.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that I did a happy dance when I realized Abby’s guitar lesson was cancelled, making my night more manageable. That I also felt guilty for feeling that way and then cancelling one of Bridget’s appointments because I just needed a night off.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that I had a great weekend with my step-brother’s family. I would recommend if you have a child under the age of seven you take them to Thomas Land at Edaville. It was freaking freezing, but seeing the expression on my nephew’s face as he ran from attraction to attraction was worth the wind burn.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that I read the new Rick Riordan book, Magnus Chase, and could not put it down. I was up until midnight on Sunday finishing the book. I would tell you that you should read Percy Jackson, Jason Grace and the Kane Chronicles series. Yes, they are meant for preteens and teens. Yet they are gripping, educational and a page turner that will keep you guessing. Plus when your child gets into the Goddesses you will know what she is talking about (score one for Mom!).
If we were having a glass of wine, I would ask how your week was…
I had a good week. I hear you on the overscheduling though. Sometimes an unexpected rest is perfect.
