I just had the perfect weekend 🙂
Saturday we started our day by going to York’s Central Market for our produce shopping and some soft pretzels and lemonade.
We came home and let the kids play in the baby pool while Eddie and I power-washed the porch & sidewalk. It looks like we poured new concrete! I don’t think that’s ever been done in the 45 years since our house was built. Nicholas had a blast in the water and Abby was adorable walking in the front yard. (She just started walking.) I also finally installed the dowel rods on my roman shades.
Afterward we ordered pizza, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. Then Eddie and I rented the George Clooney movie Up in the Air, which was surprisingly good except I didn’t care for the message of the ending.
Sunday we went to church, came home and ate our left-over pizza for lunch, and then Eddie took the kids to his parent’s house. His mom watched them while he played golf with his dad and his brother.
I realized that I have not had a day alone (as in by myself, not hanging out with Eddie or a girlfriend) since I became a mom. That’s pretty crazy! I spent my time alone cleaning while the computer blasted music from Pandora, washing the kid’s bed clothes, doing dishes, and putting away laundry. Then I took a two-hour nap. Waking up to a clean house feels awesome!
I was going to go to the grocery store, but Eddie had accidentally taken the keys to our second car. Since I couldn’t drive anywhere I called a friend from church who recently moved to our neighborhood and we went on a long walk.
I came home and showered, made a cup of tea, and watched House Hunters. Eddie picked up some dinner for me on his way home and the kids were so exhausted when they returned that they went right to bed, which gave us some mommy & daddy time 😉
Yes, I am only 25. My perfect weekend makes it sound like I am 42, but I don’t care. I am happy.
