So, this week was an interesting week. I had to travel for work and it was Thanksgiving.
I had to travel to Anderson, South Carolina for work. We have a pretty big customer there that holds a significant amount of our inventory and I had to go verify it. It was a pretty quick trip. I was only gone for literally 24 hours. I left on Tuesday November 22 at 5pm and I returned on Wednesday November 23 at 5:30pm. The trip was effective and it was nice to see our customer face to face. I was kinda nervous traveling at 29 weeks pregnant, but my doctors weren’t concerned. I should have mentioned that I was flying. The doctors were okay with that too. Overall, I was just uncomfortable sitting for a while, especially since she was still in a transverse lie position. My flights were quick. Everything was on time. So I can’t complain about much. I was just glad that I didn’t have to travel again while I was pregnant. Plus, it was nice to only be gone for 24 hours. I didn’t even have enough time to really digest that I was away from home.
Thanksgiving was good. We actually started on Wednesday with my dad. My step sister has a son (my nephew) and he was going to be spending Thanksgiving with his dad which was the first time away from his mom on a holiday (bad divorce, bad relationship). It actually worked out better for us because that was one more place that we didn’t have to go to on Thanksgiving and we didn’t have to rush from one place to the next. We had a nice time.
On actual Thanksgiving day, we went to my mom’s mom and then we went to Scott’s side of the family. I was a little concerned with how the day was going to go because we were going to let Raelynn go without a nap at all day which I normally NEVER let happen. I honestly handled it a lot better than I thought I would. I would normally freak the fuck out and be extremely uptight and tense, but there was so much going on, it kept her occupied. By the end of the night, she was definitely ready for bed though. She ran around and played with her cousins all day long so that was good.
I was off work the next day, Black Friday. I have never ever been a Black Friday shopper. I have went maybe twice and I hated it. I’m not a shopper in general, and Black Friday is just for all of the crazies which involved the majority of my friends and family. I leave the Black Friday shopping to them and then I just shop at home. I have really come to LOVE online shopping. I used to be really freaked out by it. I guess I just always thought that someone was going to steal my credit card number. Now, especially having a kid, it was so nice to be able to shop from my couch while she watched cartoons and then several days later, have the merchandise delivered to me. Such convenience. I actually did get a lot of shopping done on Black Friday which made me happy. And I actually did get a lot of deals too, which made me even happier.
Also on Black Friday, my friend Sabrina and I got our kids together and did some Christmas crafts. Here is the outcome:
CrossFit this week….
…it didn’t happen…and I’m not mad about it. There was a lot of stuff going on, and to be perfectly honest, it felt good to take one whole week off. I knew I was probably going to regret it the next week, but just for this week, I was okay with it.
Until next time…
