So, this weekend, my husband and I had plans to attend an annual chili cookoff and then he was going to a concert and he was going out. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do afterwards so we went ahead a got an overnight sitter for Raelynn. During the middle of the week we found out that the chili cookoff got cancelled. I asked my mom if she still wanted to watch Raelynn and she did, and I was happy to oblige. I didn’t have any plans as of yet, but I was sure to come up with something.
I dropped Raelynn off at 9:30am at my mom’s house. Came home and cleaned the house from top to bottom because we did have open house this weekend. Once the house was cleaned, we left and ran some errands and then stopped for lunch, then it was time for Scott to go to the concert, so I dropped him off and went to the grocery since I couldn’t go home yet because open house was still going on. I got home from the grocery and proceeded to start making Raelynn some food for dinner throughout the week. My friend text me and was like, “What are you doing? Do you want to go to dinner?” I honestly didn’t want to go because I was in such a productive groove at home, but I gave in and did. My friend and I are really close, but we hadn’t done anything with just us in a while. It was a good dinner. We did sushi and wine. Can’t go wrong with that. By the time I got home it was about 9:00 p.m.
Me, being a total mom on a Saturday Night…
Moral of the story, I don’t know how to fucking relax. For the first time since Raelynn had been born, I didn’t have any plans, and I didn’t have Scott home, or Raelynn at home and I didn’t know what to do with myself. I literally do not know how to sit down and read a book, or watch TV, or pick up my phone and scroll through social media for 20 minutes. I HAVE to be doing something. I can’t turn my mind off and I can’t sit down. It’s really annoying. It’s really exhausting. I would really enjoy a weekend where I can “relax” with nothing to do. I feel like I would have to get away in order to enjoy this, because if I’m at home, I’m going to want to be doing something around the house. BUT we can’t get away because we are so busy. Touche.
On Sunday we went to Huber’s. It is a pumpkin patch about an hour north of us. The day was PERFECT. Raelynn had a lot of fun. It’s like an obligatory must attend in the fall. They have a restaurant, all kinds of activities for kids, and most importantly, a winery 🙂 Here are some pictures from our day:
Have a good week y’all!!
