We've been really busy the past couple of months. At the end of the holidays Chris came down with the flu and was sick in bed for days, Julia kept spiking a fever after we kept thinking she was getting better, Emma had a cold and I was busy trying to stay well and keep the house running. Let's just say that for that week I really missed our old fenced in yard for Finnegan and now understand why single Moms might not want to add a pet to an already incredibly exhausting workload!
I went away for a ladies weekend retreat with a few good friends and it was wonderful to reconnect with myself a bit. I love my role as Mommy and Wife, but it sure was nice to have time to focus on just me for a couple of days. The fact that I was at a hotel on the beach with wonderful friends and an agenda that included some very inspiring speakers made me feel my time away was very well spent. Thanks so much to Chris for encouraging me to take that time for myself!
Chris caught a couple of basketball games but I'm not sure he saw as many football games on tv as he would like - we'll have to figure out a better routine for him to watch more of his sports teams for the Fall lineup. And, I'd love for him to go on a guys weekend but it seems like they guys aren't as good at planning a weekend away as the girls!
Life is busy but oh so good!
