I'm counting Friday as part of the weekend, but only because life as a SAHM sort of took my "I'm so excited about the weekend" attitude away. My weekends are full of the same stuff my weekdays are made of, just with a side of Big Daddy, church and more family time.
The Muffin and I are embarking on the one hour journey back "home" tomorrow. Our first stop will be the Ob/Gyn office for my 6 week check-up. I've got to decide whether or not I'm going to switch doctors and discuss that with Midwife Rita. I. Heart. My. Midwives. I totally trust and love them. If we aren't going to have any more babies I'll only be going once a year for a physical so I could drive the drive and have a great excuse to visit my friends. If something happens down the road and we want another baby then I'd have to switch doctors and I'd be heartbroken to leave them during a pregnancy. Through my research I've found that there aren't many midwives around our new hometown.
After the midwife visit we're meeting The Mommies and their boys for lunch and play! I cannot tell you how excited I am to see these girls! A is pregnant (due in November) and I haven't seen her since the day after Baby Ellie was born. She called almost constantly during my first day of labor and she was the first person I called after Baby Ellie came out...before I passed out. She checked on me daily the first week or so that we were home and she always said exactly what I needed to hear. K relocated during her last few weeks of pregnancy to be near family, so we have a lot in common too. These were the first real Mommy-friends that I had that made me feel normal! We met in Kindermusik and carried that over to Gymnastics and playdates. They have truly made the journey of mothering a crazy toddler so much better. We can talk about anything together, but we usually end up talking about our husbands and our kids.
Big Daddy has been working 16+ hour days this week. That means that he gets home after the kiddies are asleep and when I'm absolutely dead on my feet. I'd hoped that we could run a few "fun" errands this Saturday, but he informed me that he may need to work a little. Our conversation this week has consisted of a couple of phone calls a day, lasting no more than two minutes and a little talk about the girls as we're falling asleep. Even though we've left The Muffin or Baby Ellie with my mom several times, we've yet to do anything really fun. I'd hoped that we could do something for my birthday, but we'll be doing our big move that day.
On Sunday, I plan to go to church (probably my parents' church) and rest. Big Daddy had planned on visiting a new church on his own (to "test drive" it for us) but he may be too tired.
Doesn't that sound like fun!?
