And so is my extended weekend as a bachelorette/single mom. And I'm amazed at how much more productive I am without Dan here! I'm sure having the kids play outside as much as they have been is a factor too, but I really do invest a lot of time and energy in my marriage, and while I am sure I get more back than I give, having a couple days of complete autonomy has been pretty refreshing.
Anyway, so much for a "day of rest"! After church we hit the Old Navy sale and got a couple things for Dan and a couple things for me (one which will be returned posthaste), played at the play area, came home, ate lunch and took naps. I finished up a couple layouts that were in the early stages--one is for a handstitching class that I'm super excited about! We had dinner and made a DQ run (I firmly believe that ice cream is mandatory on above-90-degree days). And it took until about 15 minutes ago to get the kids settled (the like to switch bedrooms on "special nights", and the change in sleeping arrangements always means extra talking). I don't think moms ever truly get a day of rest...but I did make a point of saving my cleaning/organizing projects until tomorrow and sticking with things that would reenergize us as a family.
Anyway, I'm off to make the most of this last night of staying up late, falling asleep with the TV on and missing my best friend. :)
