Being content with just being HOME
This past weekend, we had planned (at the last minute) to go to the beach- just the 4 of us- no family, no friends, just us, and we were all really excited! Unfortunately, on Wednesday, Doug's boss announced that there was just too much work, and he didn't feel comfortable letting Doug have Friday off. Now, I hate to be a complainer, but on Thursday, Doug called to let me know that his boss (the same one that had refused to let Doug have Friday off) had taken Thursday AND Friday off to go on a last minute vacation with his wife. I'm sorry, but there is something very, very wrong with that picture... Needless to say, we were not going anywhere.
By Friday evening, I realized that staying home was probably best, since Carrington is getting all 4 of her top teeth in, and having a tough time with fevers and a diaper rash. We decided to instead spend the weekend at the pool, just relaxing. Saturday morning brought us a little baby girl that wasn't feeling well, and 2 kids with opposite nap schedules. Carrington slept 3 hours in the morning, and when she finally woke up, Trey went down for his nap, and this little "off-pattern" continued into Sunday.
So, all of our best thought out plans actually left us with a weekend spent at home- deep cleaning, doing laundry, and organizing closets. SO FUN, right? :) Trey got to watch movies (current favorite- The Bee Movie) and play in the backyard, while Carrington spent most of her time sleeping. It doesn't sound overly fun or glamorous, but we still had a great weekend doing what we wanted to do, right from the start, and that is spending it JUST the 4 of US, together, and that's the best part!
