I had a fantabulous weekend!
Saturday, the MM family was up bright & early due to sleep training Lboy! He has been a champ throughout the last 5 days; he is now falling asleep in 5 minutes (I’m so proud of him) and then I actually have an evening to do whatever I want. Which is something I haven’t had for the last year (until a week ago he would only sleep while being held.) I have been spending my time
blogging, soaking in the jetted tub, reading, blog hopping catching up on housework.
Anyways…Saturday we woke up super early & entertained the baby. Super MIL came over around 11:30 and she watched Lboy while Todd & I went to the movies. We saw Robin Hood, it was awesome. We came home & promptly started sleep training. 🙁 I was sad because I missed a whole day hanging out with my lil dude, but I didn’t want to get off schedule. I’m glad I didn’t because he was asleep before I even closed the door.
Once he was asleep & my nerves had calmed down from the crying, I started getting ready for my friend’s bachelorette party.
These are the things I learned about myself while out with these awesome ladies (Hi Awesome Ladies!):
1. I am old.
2. I am old because:
a. An 8 pm dinner was waaay past my bedtime.
b. I ordered water b/c I knew I was going to have to be up at 6:30 the next morning & a sip of alcohol would knock me on my rear (unlike the old days.)
c. I still woke up this morning feeling like I was hungover just because I was up until 12:30 am. Seriously, I woke up feeling like I might as well have been doing upside down keg stands or tons & tons of jello shots.
d. Someone asked me if I had just come from church because of my attire. Snap! Epic Fail on the outfit! 🙂
3. I miss hanging out with people my age & being able to have conversations that do not consist of the bodily functions of a tiny person.
This morning, I woke up, feeling as though I had been run over by a truck (please reference #2 letter C.) It was pretty unbelievable–Praise the Good Lord Himself that I didn’t drink! I can’t imagine feeling any worse than I did.
Even though I was dead on my feet, I went to another friend’s baby shower–where again I met up with old friends. Some of these girls I hadn’t seen in 3 or 4 years! It’s nice to be able to pick back up where you left off–Shout out to Barbie (yes, I call her this.) So glad I saw you!
*Focus on spending time developing relationships; be it with your husband/spouse, your girlfriends, your children, parents, etc.
*Don’t lose yourself in motherhood, there is still a YOU in there somewhere, even though she doesn’t always get to go out & play.
*And I need to spend more time focusing on the things & people I have in my life rather than focusing on the things & people I don’t. I’m glad to have been reminded of this from the Big Man Upstairs!
And thank you for putting up with my neurotic lists…again…
