Busy, busy weekend


It’s been a busy weekend. One where at 9 pm on a Sunday night, I really should be in bed because I’m so tired. But alas, here I am.

Friday night was rather uneventful. J is busy at work right now, so he came home to help feed C, bathe him, and put him to bed. [By the way. Those green beans I made. Didn’t go over so well. But we got him hilarious pictures of him tasting them. I know, I’m a bad mommy.] Then we grabbed a quick supper of the last of our homemade chicken soup and he had to go back to work. Pretty sure I did nothing of any importance for the rest of the evening.

Saturday morning was part two of my class I’m taking a church. J and I are becoming members at our church, so we need to take this class that fills us in on the history of the church as a whole, the history of our specific church, and just some details of what our church does and why they do it. It’s really interesting and I’m learning a lot. Plus, everything they tell me is making me love our church more and more and really believe that some amazing this are going on there. While I was there, J had to feed C a bottle. Oh noes! Any breastfeeding mother knows that’s a challenge. [Quick history here. He was great about taking a bottle. No qualms about it. Then, we got lazy. I know… we shouldn’t have. I went to a cousin’s bridal shower a few weeks ago and he only ate an ounce of pumped milk. Needless to say, he was hungry when I got home.] Well I called halfway through the class and he was eating. Better than last time, almost 2 ounces.

Once the class was over, I rushed home, grabbed J, C, and some stuff and went to visit friends. They have twins who are going to be 3 this year. They are the most adorable, hilarious, little girls. Love ’em! And they love Baby C too. We ended up staying there later than planned and didn’t get home till midnight. Ick.

Today, our good friends were moving into a new apartment. I stayed home with C in the morning because he was napping. J went to help. Then he came home and we ran off to pick out goodies for our house! Tile, hardwood, carpet, and paint. Fun! After creating a nice pile of samples on the counter, we had our choices. Light tile through the kitchen and bathrooms. Medium colored hardwood. Light-ish carpets. Light gray paint throughout. A blue-gray in the bedrooms. I can’t wait to see it all together!

Then we stopped by the construction site to check on the house. Joy of all joys… there were stairs so we could check out the newly built upstairs! It looks so nice! I’ll put up a few photos tomorrow… I’m too tired to load them up tonight. Plus, the plumbing was in and parts of the duct work is in. Yay for progress!!

We came home, fed C, and headed back out. See what I mean about busy?? We stopped by to help our friends continue moving. I put C down for a nap in their bedroom [he got to sleep in their room before they did] while the guys tried to fit their new couch through a poorly designed hallway that could never fit a couch through it easily. With minimal damage, a little yelling, and a lot of frustration… they did it. We proceeded to help straighten some things up [start building a bookshelf, unpack bathroom items, set up TV, unpack DVDs, etc] until it was time to head home with C for dinner. By this point, he was exhausted from all the running around so he had a quick supper of sweet potatoes [quickly becoming his favorite food] and applesauce before a bath and bed.

He is now sleeping soundly and so, soon, shall I be. I’m going to go grab my book on church history and curl up under the covers! Here to a good night’s sleep!
