If we were having coffee, we’d sit in the calm before the storm, enjoying the quiet of having only one little boy in the house before there are two little boys in the house. Little Jedi is having a sleepover tonight, and I suspect that there will be loud feet running up and down our absurdly-long hallway, pew-pew noises from the video games, and lots of little boy chatter.
I’d tell you that this week has been up and down for me, but it’s heads and tails above last week. I didn’t manage to read or share Throwback Thursday posts this week, which is something I’ve really been enjoying in the past few weeks. I barely managed to answer comments this week—but I did! I also did some work on a few upcoming guest posts, but I haven’t been nearly as productive on the writing front as I’d wanted.
But even if I wasn’t terribly productive in blog-land, I did manage to do quite a bit. The cleaning, of course–because laundry is the never-ending story, dust materializes overnight, and Tank loses enough fur every week to create another pup. The middle of the week brought a flurry of things to do for the nonprofit, and I had quite a few little errands to run, things I’d been neglecting. I also managed a visit to my regular doctor, who has put me back on birth control in an attempt to curb the PMDD symptoms I’ve been experiencing.
This week I’ve got quite a few things to do—I’m taking a short grant-writing class on Tuesday, and during the rest of the week I have somethings to do for an upcoming event for the nonprofit. I’m also hoping to use the week to do more writing than I have recently, and to that end I’m going to spend part of the weekend setting up some writing goals. This week is also our second wedding anniversary, so there may be anniversary shenanigans in store.
I would tell you that we’re not having a big anniversary celebration or giving each other lavish gifts this year. Maybe that’s in our future–maybe not. But we’re happy with small things, creature comforts and shared experiences, and that works well for times when lavish gifts aren’t in the (debit) cards. Mostly, I’m just happy to have a partner who supports me when I need supporting and loves my kiddo like his own, someone whose lifestyle is so utterly suited to mine. Especially one I find so attractive. 😉
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I need to get going—I don’t want to miss out on reading coffee posts this week, but my afternoon may be quite a busy one! Link up your coffee posts below, and don’t forget to use the #weekendcoffeeshare tag on Facebook and Twitter!
