I am settling into this routine as a (temporary) stay at home mama
It’s equal parts busy…and keep myself busy.
Last week, for instance, there was home admin & a list of to-do’s that needed tending to:
I Decked the halls, Got our Oil changed, Closed on our ReFi, And made visits to the Dry Cleaners, Bank and Vacuum Repair shop (the vacuum needs a new motor. What?)
There were outings with the girls
& lunches with friends (i try to do this every week)
& time with my mom and sis.
I see my mom almost every day.
We walk over there for morning coffee (Hazel is tight with their doorman, Rick)
We meet at the Park
We keep each other company while running errands….
Sometimes one of us drives the other around and double-parks to expedite stops in impossible parking areas. It is really quite convenient.
Hanging with my mama is one of the best parts of mat leave.
Ellie comes around too. Anesthesia school makes for a hectic schedule but she pops over between classes or when she needs a break from studying.
I have a blast with my sissy, regardless of what we are doing
(exhibit A: our drive home from visiting the greats last Wednesday. see photo)
When I return to work, my weeks will look nothing like this.
I will miss it.
In any case, here’s to a great week ahead.
