A few random things to share as I head into my extended long weekend.
1. Yesterday was my wedding anniversary. M and I celebrated our 4 years of wedded bliss with a nice dinner out at Melanie’s Bistro, a local restaurant with a great atmosphere and delicious food. I had the lamb (a little tough but the sauce more than made up for it) and M had the steak (cooked to perfection with tasty seasoning). We started with the crab cakes which I would probably pass on in the future. While good, they weren’t anything special and they not worth the cost at $10 for 2. The best part of the meal was by far the chocolate mousse cake for dessert. M and I shared but he let me have more than half 🙂
2. E started daycare this week and she is transitioning wonderfully! She hasn’t cried once at the drop off and she loves being able to play with new toys and new babies. Unfortunately she loves it so much that she doesn’t want to nap. Apparently she is afraid she will miss out on something! She has been napping longer as the week progresses so hopefully she will work up to her normal routine in the next week or so.
3. Today I have a day to myself! I have a day off from work today (thank you, accrued vacation time!) and with both girls in daycare, I have a full 8 hours to do whatever I want, whenever I want! This is the first time I’ve had this kind of time to myself since E has been born! So what do I have planned? A visit with my sister-in-law and niece, a trip to the library and grocery shopping. While running household errands isn’t exactly what I would do on my ideal day off, our fridge is bare and we need something for dinner! At least I can take my time to peruse the aisles and read labels!
That’s it for now so have a good weekend everyone!
2:30 update: Apparently it was silly of me to think that I could have a whole day to myself. The daycare called after lunch informing me that E had a fever and that I would need to pick her up 😦 On the plus side, I swung by the drive-thru on my way home from the daycare and my Big Mac was delicious! I’m happy to report that E is currently napping in her crib 🙂
