Don't get me wrong... we are still fairly busy... but in more of a we-have-3-kids kind of way. This last weekend we had family night at home on Friday and followed that with a Saturday of lounging, lunch out and a movie night (for us girls - Dad was off meeting up with an old Army friend who was in town). Sunday was another relaxed day for the most part. Emily and I snuck out for a couple of hours to meet up with my sister for a quick happy birthday wine slushy at the local winery. She's 26 now and you probably would have laughed at how long it took for me to do the math on that. How old am I again?
Then low and behold I was up way too many times Sunday night into Monday. Not with a nursing baby or anything... with a running nose. I probably spent too much time outside Sunday in the dry freaking air that is Kansas right now... or I caught a summer cold. All I know is this week I have been majorly feeling it and my motivation has been null and void. Luckily short of canceling our one swim lesson this week, I've managed to get everyone everywhere they needed to be and run the laundry list of errands this week has so far called for.
But MAN Y'ALL. I am slowing it down around here. Less is best. These kids have all those toys for a reason, right? I've never been a fan of summer and the heat... so it is no surprise that we have kept the outside ventures to an absolute minimum since the temperatures crept up to the triple digits. Ain't nobody got time for that. Especially with a 3 month old. We kicked June's butt... and July? July is meant for inside activities and special ice cream treats to cure the guilt of losing my awesome mom summer jam.
It happens, right?
