I have to say that the Saturday and Sunday after Christmas this year has been the best weekend I’ve had all year. We haven’t done anything special or big. My new condo didn’t magically clean itself. And the boys still aren’t the worlds best listeners and neither is their sister, she would be here by now if she was. But, the weekend has been nice and relaxing.
On Saturday we got to sleep in before the boys decided it was time to get up. Shortly after that I had a craving for coffee and doughnuts that needed to be satisfied. So we bundled up the kids and headed to Tully’s and Top Pot. The boys weren’t in the mood to eat there and neither was I so Nick just ran in a grabbed everything and we headed home. We ate our doughnuts and drank our coffee. Once we were done it was time to pick up the house a bit. We got the living room and a load of dishes done. The boys watched Inside Out again. Once everything was clean the boys wanted to dig into some more of their Christmas gifts that we hadn’t let them play with because they could be quite messy. The boys build a Lego set and then build some figures with Gray’s new Quixels set.
I had to lay down for a bit and rest. Being 9 months pregnant can really take it out of you. After that I busted out 4 blog posts, so keep your eye out for those. And then it was dinner time which was just left over Christmas dinner. After eating the boys really wanted to have a family game night so we all sat down and played Trouble together. Then it was off to bed for the boys. Nick and I stayed up, me playing on my new Mac and him playing Halo 5. I couldn’t sleep so I was up until 3 while Nick started to snore at 1.
The next morning I woke up very tired and with a very stuffy nose. The entire day was pretty much spent with Nick cleaning and me trying to un-stuff my nose. I did sort laundry but Nick actually ran it. The boys played with their new stuff and iPad. It was all pretty low-key which was perfect. The whole weekend was probably the best weekend yet. We didn’t do anything, the boys were content, Nick was content and I was content. It was pretty perfect and just what we all needed.
