I realized this morning what was bothering me last Saturday. It wasn't the kids, it wasn't the projects, it was being home alone all day without Curtis. Evenings and weekends are hard without him, they seem to go on forever. I can't wait for him to get a new shift or a new job. These past three years of weekends haven't been much fun. I hope things will change soon.
Last weekend we went camping with the extended Gibby family. This was the first time we'd been camping since I was pregnant with Audrey. We went on a little hike to a stream, ate s'mores, played with cousins (Audrey's favorite part) and told stories around the camp fire, all the good camping stuff.
My favorite little story from camping: Curtis took the kids on a short hike up the hill. At a fork in the trail Audrey stopped and said, "I wonder what's down that isle?" We now know we have a city girl who learns everything from her mom. =)
When we first arrived I was making a dutch oven dinner and Curtis came and started helping me. I thought to myself, "Wow, this is nice. I didn't even ask." Curtis then said, "I think this is the first vacation we've taken together that I haven't brought my computer." That's why he was helping! It was so nice having a husband who wasn't distracted by technology all weekend!
We had a great time. I will definitely want to do it again next year.
Today I feel like I need a me day. Ever had one of those? Curtis is at work all day, till late tonight, I have an extra little one, my niece Addie (18 months), who is very sweet and easy to tend, but still needs me and I'm trying to get some projects done, but am lacking the get go. It just seems like a long time since I've had a break. Do mamas get breaks? I'm not complaining, I love my kids and I love having projects, I just want a me day. Any suggestions?
I have started my own little business! I make nursing covers, binky clips, grab and go bags and headbands. I love finding bargains, so when I see something I love that is way over priced I always find a way to get a deal, even if it means I make it myself. I love these products so much I wanted others to be able to benefit from my thrifty shopping and crafty skills. Curtis has been helping me with the websites. Here they are: www.happyheadbands.com www.buzzaboutbaby.com They link back and forth to each other, so it's easy to view both. Feel free to tell anyone about my websites. I enjoy what I am doing. Wish me luck!
