After dropping off Robby, we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. During warmer weather, Robby occupies himself by "helping" with whatever yard work and landscaping Mr. Bill was toiling with while I took the opportunity to sit and chat for a few minutes. Although our visits were brief, they were frequent and added some continuity to our day. With this winter being so cold and snowy, we have all opted to hibernate for the past few weeks. I've missed seeing him and hearing his stories, and it was nice to catch up and talk.
When I came home from breakfast, I sat on the couch to get some work done. I woke up 2 hours later. Apparently I was more tired than I thought! I have to admit, while I wasn't anticipating a nap,I certainly woke up feeling refreshed. Thankfully I woke up in time for my OB/GYN appointment. The baby is growing as expected and everything appears to be on track for a healthy delivery. I can deal with my own health complications as long as I know that the baby is fine!
It's a good thing that I was able to take a nap yesterday morning, because we are gearing up for a busy weekend. In addition to the regular weekend errands, Robby has been invited (and has RSVP's) to three birthday parties and one St. Patrick's Day scavenger hunt. He is over-the-moon with his social calendar. My mind is scrambling trying to fit in everything while still remaining "relaxed." Something tells me that relaxation is nothing but a pipe dream for the next few days!
Although our schedule is going to be hectic, I wouldn't have it any other way. Robby is extremely social and has been looking forward to each party since receiving the invitations. He certainly doesn't care if the laundry doesn't get washed, the house stays cluttered and the grocery shopping never gets done. All he cares about is playing with his friends, having fun and eating a lot of cake. I just love his priorities, and I'm looking forward to a weekend of watching him have fun with his friends. I know that we'll be busy, but I'm going to try to calm down and enjoy this time. After all, the housework and errands will still be there on Monday.
