But this morning, I'm being a rebel. I'm starting a blog after getting my warnings.... ooooooh you go with your bad self! Okay, not really.
What a beautiful weekend! We had perfect weather. We had a happy baby (for the most part)! We didn't fight! We didn't argue! We even got all of our to-do's accomplished and then some. Yes, a great weekend indeed.
R had to work on Saturday but got home shortly after lunch-time. We loaded up Kage and drove over to Zales to drop my rings off to be re plated. I'm now ringless for 2 weeks. We were trying to find a new stroller for Kage that was more mall appropriate and just didn't have any luck. Her jogger has gotten so dirty from all of the trail walking and park walking we've done....I just feel ick taking it into stores and malls. I need to get something a little more like this:
Speaking of Craigslist, we did pick up that tunnel on Saturday and Kage loves it! Unfortunately, we can't fit the whole assembled thing into our apartment but the tunnel and one of the boxes fit in the living room. She doesn't even know that part of it is missing! :) I swear, our place feels smaller and smaller with each new toy that we buy her. I commented on Saturday night that this place would have been the perfect size--and dare I even say, big--for the two of us.
Sunday morning we went back to Church ABC after our several month long hiatus. Why is it that when our lives became so upside down and troubled, we left the church? Isn't that not how it is supposed to go? I dunno. Regardless. We went back. And we were both so nervous that everyone would call us out on the jerks that we were for just "quitting" church. But that didn't happen. We instead got a bunch of "welcome backs" and "we missed you" and "it's so nice to see you!"
After church, we went home to let Kage nap before taking her out to the splash park and to go grocery shopping. She had so much fun and her dad was finally able to watch her play in the water. He always misses it because he works so late and most weekends. I felt good letting him have this time with her and enjoy her.
And it's felt good to not be fighting and arguing and angry all weekend. We've truly been happy, all weekend. But it's been work. It's been a 24/7 conscious effort all weekend. But I think that's expected? It's not going to be easy....I do know that. But I'm willing to try and am trying. And he is too.
Don't forget to enter the give-away too.... the book is amazing.
