The weekend was only 'eh'. Weekends are always a great break from the weekday routine, but sometimes that's all they are. This one had the usual bright spots, like a visit to the library, playing games, cooking, and attending a birthday party with the boys. It did not include the balance of doing things in other aspects of life, though - getting things done around the house, seeing friends... And it also had the unfortunate bonus of a little trip to the hospital emergency room. On Saturday night, my little boy slipped in the shower and fell back onto the marble floor, resulting in a pretty deep gash on the back of his head. He's fine, thank goodness, but spending a few hours at the hospital on a Saturday night is not exactly what I would've wanted.
I think it's going to be a quiet week on the blog. It feels so repetitious to say, but I'm tired. I am sure my energy and inspiration will return soon. I'm going to focus on getting to bed earlier and getting some exercise. That always helps. We're also entering my least favorite season. The cold and wet Spring months can be difficult in New England. But the I do feel the days getting longer, and the flowers will arrive soon. Just yesterday, Aaron pointed out the swans in the lake - they've returned, in all their majestic splendor.
In the meantime, we do have fun plans coming up, and the house renovation is slowly getting underway. Little by little... So it may be quiet here for a bit, but I'll be back before the daffodils arrive.
