So, I will be having a "girl" weekend. My littles have plans to watch "Tinkerbell" and have their pick of supper...peanut butter buns and Cheetos. Pretty easy, huh? Ballerina Rosie wants to stay up late and watch The Sound of Music with me, so this will be the perfect time to do that. I also have plans to (finally) write out my thank you's for all the wonderful people who sent me gifts, and helped me in any way when I broke my leg, better late than not at all, right?
Jedi and Ballerina Rosie are officially in Level 3 now for swimming. They can both jump off the diving board into the deep water!! Jedi could already do that, but Ballerina Rosie, could not, it was pretty exciting watching them today! Swim lessons...done. This big pregnant lady cannot do them any more this summer, as we had to park 3 blocks away and literally walk up a slow incline all the way there and then sit in a very (hot) warm pool building, while my contractions slowed and I fanned myself with a folder or coloring book and kept my littles busy for an hour in bleachers. (with lots of stairs) I'm out of breath just thinking about it!
I had a great mail day this week and am currently reading these books (The Secret Garden is with Ballerina Rosie for her book club) along with, oh, like 4 other books. I read a lot of books at the same time. I am really into The Book Thief and can't wait each night to read it. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that it is fiction. I am not a fiction reader. I like real things. But it's pretty interesting, I'm liking it.
Next week, no doctor appts, yipee! Only piano lessons and hopefully an easy going enough week to finally put away the kids' winter clothes and put the summer clothes in their drawers.
After this next week, my list of 31 appts start. (I had one this week) I SO wanted this to not be a busy summer, but with graduation parties, fishing trips, camping trips, swim lessons, piano lessons, doctor appts, vacation, baby coming in August....It's going to fly by, isn't it?
I am someone who needs my down time. I know my kids need theirs too. Just time to be home doing nothing. Just being here. living. There won't be many of those days this summer, probably one per week...I'm praying for peace and for that one day to be enough.
