Whew. I've been a little bit of a slacker blogger lately. And honestly I was starting to get a little burned out. It was feeling a little bit more like a chore than something I enjoy. And with everything going on I was beginning to feel overwhelmed.
So I've spent the last few days doing nothing. And I really do mean doing nothing.
Wednesday I managed to avoid everything on my to do list in favor of not getting dressed all day and lounging around the house with Preston. There may or may not have been a lot of Vampire Diaries watching for me and cartoon watching for Preston.
Thursday we once again avoided the to do list by spending much of the day at Chuck E Cheese with some of both mine and Preston's favorite friends. And then heading to my Mom's house to visit.
Friday I figured we might as well continue the trend and we didn't get dressed until very late in the afternoon. And really we only got dressed when we did because I had to go pick my sister up. My parent's headed out of town for a couple days and my sister Jessica is watching the house and the younger kids while they're away. We started out planning on just going over for dinner but somehow I got talked into staying the night. Brad was already in bed as he had to work early Saturday morning, so there didn't seem to be much point in going home. Plus we'd planned on doing some wine drinking. That of course didn't work out as I fell asleep when I put Preston to bed. I did wake up at midnight and head out into the living room where I stayed up talking until 3am with two of my sisters. Sometimes I miss being able to just stay up late chatting with them. It's the crappy part of growing up and moving out.
The weekend has pretty much been spent the same. Jammies and laziness. I'm sure the 3am bedtime Friday night didn't help motivate me Saturday. In fact I'm starting to feel bad for Preston. While I've enjoyed the last few days of not doing a whole lot of anything, I'm sure he misses life as he knew it. With the exception of Chuck E Cheese Preston probably feels like he's been locked up. And his attitude today is starting to reflect that. Although in my defense Preston has had a cold too during the last few days so taking it easy was probably a good thing.
Although it really was my fault and not Preston's colds. I've just been a little bit burned out and lacking energy. I'm thinking that I've had enough of a recovery. And it will be back to life as I know it starting tomorrow. Boy do we have a busy week ahead of us. We've got all of the errands that I've put off running. I'm watching my nephew tomorrow as my sister has her first day back at work. We have play dates almost every day. And a night out with friends on Friday. Ready life? Because we're back!
