For those wondering…I meant for it to read “wow…waw” in the subject. It means…WOW…WHAT A WEEKEND! 🙂
I had the best weekend. For those that know how it started after noon on Friday you may be wondering how I can say THAT was fun but it got better so that was good. For those who don’t have any idea what I am talking about I got food poisoning from lunch on Friday . I spent the afternoon at home between two places in my bathroom. NOT fun…but luckily the symptoms subsided for a short time for me to go grab Aaron from daycare and for 2 of my friends to come over and help me out for a few hours to recover and make sure Aaron was OK while I did what I had to do to get better. The people in my life are amazing.
Aaron and I woke up Saturday morning…I felt SO much better and Aaron was so happy. He slept in which put us a little behind on our days activity but he SLEPT IN. Don’t fix something that’s not broken. 😉 We drove up to see my grandma. We got to see 3 of my aunts, 2 of my uncles, my grandma, a family friend and my parents. It was so nice. They got some good Aaron time. Aaron had a blast and I got a short nap in. When momma gets sleep…everyone is happy. 🙂 It is always great to see family. Aaron loves to show off and it always makes this momma proud. On our way back home we stopped in Ames to see our friends who had a baby earlier this month. I’ve met the bundle of joy but Aaron hadn’t met him yet. It was so cute to see Aaron warm up to our friends…then their cat they have. He then got jealous because his mommy was holding the baby…and then before you knew it he was enjoying time with our friends walking around the house…petting the kitty and the baby saying “niiiiiice.” It makes a mommy proud to know your child can be around young ones and everything going OK. We got home and by that time Aaron was exhausted. We ate a late supper and then went to bed.
We woke up on Sunday morning and mid morning we headed out to meet up with 2 of my college friends I haven’t seen in awhile. You know you have good friends when you can go 12 years from seeing each other and it doesn’t feel like you skip a beat catching up and chatting. Aaron and I got home and he got some pool time. This boy LOVES his little pool. With our deck now I can just put it on the deck, fill it up with water and Aaron is in heaven. We then got some bubble time in with the bubble machine I bought the other day. Aaron loves to be outside and if I am being completely honest, I like it too. Vitamin D is good for you. Natural vitamin D. 🙂 We picked up a friend and supper and hung out at the house with some supper, more pool time and of course more bubble time.
I end the evening a little sad….not from our weekend but because I am trading Jay’s vehicle in tomorrow morning. It is hard to drive it. Not that it is a bad vehicle because it is a great vehicle but it has memories. That makes it easy and hard to part with. We drove Aaron home from the hospital in that vehicle. Jay had finally caved and got a SUV. He was SO strong willed (about everything) specifically about not getting a mini-van or an SUV. The people who bought them drove crazy and felt like the owned the road. Truth be told…I think Jay liked “owning the road”. 🙂
I miss him every day. Making the decision to trade his car was hard and easy. Part of me knows he wants me to do it. The other part of me is going to miss it sitting in the garage. It is hard to separate doing “the right thing” vs “holding onto things that hold memories”. I do have the best thing in the world that not only holds the proudest moment/memory of Jay with me everyday but it doesn’t make doing these other things any easier.
There was more good then bad or sad this weekend and that makes me say WOW..WAW! 🙂
