So, four years ago, Sunday Funday was my hubby, my two year old son, and I heading over to my sister’s house, and us all getting shit-bombed while my son toddled around or watched tv. I can remember more than one time where I passed out on her couch mid-afternoon and left someone – anyone! – to take care of A. I’m so beyond disgusted with the person I was back then. SO self absorbed, so absent from my marriage and from motherhood, and living for a fantasy world where I was so important, so beautiful, so loved….and the only thing that made me feel better was the alcohol.
Fast forward four years, and woke up to A crying out at 5am that his “nostrils are hot and dry.” lol – kindergarteners say the funniest things! I got him a drink of water and brought him in bed with hubby and I. We all fell asleep, only to have American Bulldog #1 wake me by panting in my face – she was hungry! I always get up first, but hubby jumped right up and fed the pups, leaving me to sleep in a bit (6:30am is sleeping in these days). I lounged in bed with A, and we snuggled before making our way downstairs at 7. I loved the slow pace to the morning, making a leisurely breakfast and puttering around the house straightening up. Went for a 5 mile run and then home to shower and get ready for A’s play date with his buddy. The boys played in the bounce house while the other mom and I chatted. I haven’t known her for long, but I like her, and I think I may have made a new friend:) We had smoothies afterwards (yeah, avocado kale green smoothie was DELISH), then jetted home to drop A off to hubby. Ran back out for a quick pedicure with a friend (which I never do – that poor pedicurist definitely earned his pay today!) and then home to my family. We have had a nice, low key evening, though now A is begging me to wrestle with him….this should be fun!
Tale of two Sundays – I’m so grateful that THIS is my Sunday Funday.
PS – Debuting the new haircut at work tomorrow. Literally cut over 12 inches off! Think Jennifer Aniston length to Halle Berry length. NERVOUS!!
