For the next 18 years (at the very least), I don't think that the comment 'I am bored' will ever leave my lips. Long gone are the days where I lounge on the couch watching movies with a glass of wine on the table and my dog curled around my legs.
Back in the day (just a mere 5 months ago), I would come home from work, take my heels off, put on something comfy and hang out with Justin. The craziest thing I would worry about was what we were going to have for dinner. My house was immaculate, my clothes were ironed and I didn’t' smell like spit-up. Those days are long gone and if I can be honest, while I desperately miss alone time with my husband, I really enjoy taking care of my family.
I am only working part time, which, compared to full-time moms who also work full-time jobs, is cake, but during those three days I am constantly running around like Ty Pennington on speed (wow, that's a crazy thought!). Now, in all fairness, I do catch a break after the boys go to bed which is usually around 8 or 9, but instead of relaxing, I usually make formula for the following day or fold laundry while I watch tv. I do allow myself some time to hop on the laptop and keep up with my blog because it's something that I really enjoy and I can do it while the babies are napping or staring at the dog. Tank and my mom's dog, Hailey have become fascinating to the boys. It'll be exciting when the boys are able to reach up and touch them!
Will I ever utter the phrase 'Justin and I spent Saturday in our jammies eating cold pizza and watching How I Met Your Mother reruns' ever again? Probably not any time soon. I have a feeling that Saturdays are going to be spent watching cartoons in the mornings and hopefully going on a mini adventure in the afternoons like I used to do with my family when I was little. Seriously, we used to have the best weekends!
When was the last time you had a lazy day?
