I love weekends, having Mike home is great and he is super helpful. That being said, he throws the routine off a bit. Not terribly but I don’t seem to know what to do with myself when he is at home, its so strange. During the week as soon as Nate goes down I usually run here first, download any new pictures and check e-mail and then either turn the TV on or get to work on something around the house. I pretty much do the same thing on weekends but its somehow different. I’m in my 5th month of staying home and Monday is definitely the new Saturday. He did win the best husband award this past weekend, I gave him the baby at 9am and went back to bed, I slept until Noon! It was heaven.
This morning started off so productive. Nate and I were up and out of the house just after 8, we were headed to the post office. Anyone catch that? Sort of the punch line, Post Office, Presidents Day. Damn! Now we have to go back tomorrow. I hate going to the post office, there is this cranky woman there who is so mean to me. She acts as though I can’t handle both an infant car seat and an envelope.
Raise your hand if you read I would be painting this week and laughed at me….. go ahead. I got the room taped and the walls washed yesterday, today I actually got it done. I started at 10am and finished at 6:30pm. I knew it would take a long time since I would be juggling the baby but it was pretty exhausting. He did great for the most part but he didn’t want to nap today so that meant he was on the floor playing in the middle of the mess. He managed to make it out without any paint on him. My hands and feet are very sore, hands because I have no callus protection at all and all of that rolling really wore on them. My feet because I paint barefoot, up and down on that latter all day ruffed them up. Barefoot because I want to know if I step in paint before I get it all over the house, I didn’t step in any today, but, I did sit on my roller. Cute!
Nathan started two new things this weekend. First, he’s blowing raspberries. It’s so cute, funny and slobbery. Second, he’s started petting the dog. I cannot tell you how cute that is. Its only been about 2 weeks since he realized he has a dog, now when Bruno hops up on the couch to sit next to us he reaches right out for him, every time. B loves it, unfortuately he shows it by licking him right across the face! (Cute but so gross.)
Mondays plans, check. On tap for tomorrow. Yoga, the repeat PO trip and a new recipe for dinner. Should go just fine. Famous last words?
