Weekend Recap and Quiet

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.

    Hi Mary,
    Your trip to the emergency room sounds exactly like what happened to my colleague's husband last year so I thought I should comment. They also stitched him up and sent him home. But weeks later he suffered a stroke (he is only 50ish) which they attributed to his fall and the gash on his head. So do keep an eye on your husband. Hopefully the same thing won't happen to him.

    1. Thanks Joanna. It was actually my 2-year-old that fell, and yes we're definitely keeping an eye on him. He seems to be just fine though. Thanks!

  2. Great choice for a photo Mary! I often feel the same about blogging, it is like that today, only one photo and a few words. Sometimes, that's all that is needed.
