Fantasy vs. Reality

How I wish I could spend my weekend: at a quiet resort or spa somewhere nearby like Sedona. (This place would be heavenly.) While I was there, I could relax, sleep in, eat healthy meals prepared by someone else, get a 90-minute massage, pedicure and facial, and go for a long hike and be alone with my thoughts.  I'd come back home on Sunday evening feeling refreshed and renewed.

How I will actually be spending my weekend:  if this past week is any indication, AJ will be clinging to me most of the weekend and crying when I have to put him down for any reason.  My mom and MM will be disagreeing about whether he should receive some Tylenol or Motrin for possible teething.  MJ will be waking up daily between 5 and 5:30 for the day and walking all over the house, opening and closing all of the eleven (!) cabinets in our kitchen.  I will be running errands to 4 or 5 different stores tomorrow with them in tow, as well as trying to accomplish a few little projects around the house (like installing baby gates and cabinet locks) with my mom's help.  We will meet my in-laws out at a restaurant for dinner somewhere on Sunday.  And somewhere in between, I will do my laundry and finish entering my billable time for the month of December in my firm's computer program (a task that was supposed to have been completed by close of business on Friday).

Yeah, I'm sure I'll return to the office on Monday feeling renewed and refreshed with my current plan.  :-)

  1. Ugh, 4-5 stores with them in tow???!!! Yikes, girl. That weekend doesn't sound remotely refreshing. But mine won't be either!
    I'm more tired just reading about yours though :(
