Last week I was on a major writing kick that seemed like it would last forever. I had so many words flowing out of my head and didn’t have nearly enough time to write them all down. I was hoping it would never stop, but as they (whoever they are) say, all good things must come to an end. This week? Total blockage.
I’ve been trying to find the time and the words to describe my Mother’s Day weekend but all I can really come up with is that it rocked. Somehow that just doesn’t seem very descriptive. It all was pretty low-key, which is just how I like things to be these days.
I spent my day Saturday completing the cleaning out the closet project. When I was finished, it was much more organized and contained about 1/3 less junk than it started out with. (It just occurred to me that I should have taken a before and after picture) I ended up with a pretty large trash pile, and an even larger garage sale pile. I organized all of my scrap booking/knitting/sewing/crafty stuff and now have some actual space in the spare room that I can work on that stuff if/when I have the time. I have some left over material from Christmas gifts that I’ve been wanting to play around with, but my sewing table has been buried for a while. My scrap booking stuff has been buried in the closet for a few years now and, you know, since Zach is almost 2, I think it might be time to start on his baby scrapbook.
Saturday night after dinner, while I was cleaning up, Zach came in the kitchen toting a large handled basket and a card. The basket was part of my Mother’s Day present and was meant for me to keep my knitting projects and yarn in. Next I got a pretty necklace and a card from Hubby. I was very impressed with my gifts because Hubby isn’t exactly known for picking out thoughtful gifts. I absolutely love both of my gifts and love even more that he picked them out on his own.
Sunday was a busy day, but I got to spend it with all of my family. We went to church, then to my Dad’s house for dinner afterwards. My dad and his wife had to rush off to a graduation ceremony, so we went over to my sister’s house to put the kids down for a nap. While everyone else was sleeping, I spent a little time taking more pictures of Brayden and then reading up on some news headlines. After that, we went over to my brother’s house for a Mother’s Day dinner with my mom. Zach was the only kid brave enough to hold the bird. The kids had a lot of fun running around in the back yard while the adults chatted. By the time we ate dinner, the kids were all exhausted and pretty crazy, but we still enjoyed the time together.
The only bad part of the weekend was that Zach was pretty cranky the whole time. He didn’t sleep well all weekend and again I’m blaming the teething. When he wouldn’t go to sleep last night for the 3rd night in a row, I felt around in his mouth again and he actually jumped when I touched the gums near where his molars are coming in. Between the teething and his allergies, I imagine he isn’t too comfortable right now. I’m thinking a little snuggle time might be in order tonight…for both of us.
