Unfortunately Eric did not get a break from laboring (which meant neither did I) for labor day. He had to work most of the day Saturday, Sunday afternoon, and Monday morning. So now, it's already Tuesday and we never really had a break. Both of the boys are napping at the same time right now, so this is as much of a break as I'm going to get. I love that Eric is self-employed, so he doesn't have to ask for time off to go on a vacation, can meet us for lunch, he came to every single midwife appointment with both boys, but sometimes it's hard when he has to work long hours to finish a project. Although, we are very thankful and blessed that he has been staying so busy. Work isn't always this consistent.
Yesterday we had a bbq in our apartment rec room. There were about 25 people who stopped by between 5 and 9pm. We bbqed hamburgers and played Catch Phrase and Cranium. I love games so much and miss playing them with mine and Eric's old roommates. One time Eric, Scott (his twin brother), their roommates, and two of my bestfriends (hi Cari!) played a hilarious game of Cranium. I will never forget Eric having to act out the word "hormone." Too funny!
Today we walked over to a coffee shop/cafe around the corner and had lunch with my Grandma, Aunt, and cousin. I love that we have a coffee shop within walking distance. It's so nice to go for a walk, then stop in and get an iced mocha. Yum!
The gym that I go to is also around the corner. It's a great gym with a daycare. The daycare even has video monitors, so you can check in on your kids while you work out. So, I signed Judah & Samuel to go in there this morning and Thursday morning. But, I never showed up. I am SO SCARED to have someone watch Samuel that I don't know. I know Judah will play with the kids and toys and have a great time. But, what if Samuel gets fussy? (Yeah, they'll come get me). But, they don't know how to hold him and give him his paci, etc.. Maybe I'm being ridiculous, but I really am nervous to take him in there. Any advice? I can just go in the evenings and weekends, but it would be nice to be able to go in the mornings when we have the time.
