I always tell people that I'm a "really bad stay-at-home, stay-at-home parent." I am an extrovert. I like to be out doing things with my kids and I thrive when I have that kind of schedule. For me, a day at home needs to be a rare treat and not something I do for days on end. Yesterday, despite the fact that Rachel did not go to preschool again, she and I did some errands in the afternoon. (She coughed so hard she threw up in the morning but was back to her normal self after that -- eating, energetic, and happy. I didn't want to send her to preschool but I figured she was well enough to do errands with me.)
Before we left, Rachel declared "Big Elephant crying"
and proceeded to feed him some tuna!It was so nice to just get out again. I even treated myself to some Starbucks. Yum yum yum! Rachel enjoyed her free cookie at the grocery store. I will be so sad when my kids are too old for the cookies. They make grocery shopping so much more peaceful.
In the evening we went to LOGOS. I table parent the Jr Youth and we had a great, funny conversation. And then after supper, Sam vacuumed, I drank two cups of tea and talked, and Rachel played. And to top it off, Dave and Tim were twinsies :) It was so great to be at church and visiting with some of my favourite people again. We've all missed our LOGOS nights. And I got enough leftovers that I don't have to cook supper tonight! Double yay!!!
After that, it's the weekend! And it's supposed to be above 0C on Saturday. Hallelujah!!! Can you tell that this extrovert just needed a HUGE infusion of people time and that I got it? :) Happy weekend everyone!
