Today Henry woke me up at 5:30. As in 5:30 am. I brought him back to bed with me but alas, he wasn’t tired. I have a red mark on my nose from where he kicked me to prove it. Note to self: teach Henry not to kick anymore.
The good news is that I’ve been majorly productive as a result. I’ve washed dishes, scrubbed the bath tub, done three loads of laundry, written thank you notes, and even made the bed. And it’s only 9:30 am.
The bad news is that I need a nap in a major way. But I’m hoping to keep it together long enough to take Henry to the playground and then put him down for a nap after an early lunch. I can make it as long as I don’t sit still for too long.
In the meantime, here’s a recap of the weekend: we had good weather for a change. I swear sometimes it feels like we live in Washington State instead of Washington, DC. But without all of the coffee shops and the grunge movement. I take that back, we do have a lot of coffee shops but they’re all Starbucks or Carribeau Coffees, none of the independent cafes that I think of when picturing our Western namesake.
Speaking of that topic. Exactly why do we have two Washingtons in the United States? It must be so confusing to those not from the US. Actually it’s pretty confusing to those of us who are, now that I think about it. Do you know how many times I’ve filled out my address online and have had to search for “Washington, DC” in the drop down menu because it’s always different? It’s either listed as Washington, Washington D.C., or District of Columbia, but you never know which. (Not to be confused with Washington State, of course.)
Anyway, back to the weekend. It started off great considering I got my replacement iPhone (the new model) on Friday. I’m loving it, Siri updates and all.
On Saturday we took Henry to a fair downtown where they had games and pumpkins and all kinds of cool stuff that kids would enjoy. Kids who are older than our son, that is. We had grand ideas of Henry participating in all the fun activities, but he just wasn’t into painting pumpkins or playing in the bounce house. He did, however, hold still long enough to get a couple of “tattoos” which he enjoyed showing off all day. And he had fun on the slides and the swings so it worked out in the end.
We then had a nice lunch with a friend and afterwards I met with the jeweler in my never-ending quest for my replacement ring (yes, I’m still dealing with that). We got the insurance check but I’m still trying to decide on the ring itself. I’ve narrowed it down to this:
Well, it’s off to work I go. Fall is busy season as people are getting their pictures done to include with Christmas cards so I’d better get back to editing.
