Benjamin and I did some calendar planning over the last week. We plotted the weddings we have been invited to this summer, his work trips, and my work schedule, and what we came up with was a calendar that is pretty much booked up until June (except for a few weekends with nothing planned that I would like to keep that way!). Thank goodness for June, when I have to stay close to home (or at least not fly) just in case the little one decides to come early.
How is it that we don’t have a free weekend until almost 5 months from now?! While we are fortunate to have the ability to travel like we do, and are even more fortunate that Benjamin has enough work to keep him traveling regularly (he works freelance, so even if it’s on weekends, we like it when he works!), I do wish that we had a few more “free” weekends to enjoy at home together before the baby comes. Because I can only imagine how our weekends will change when Piccolini is here. Frankly, we’re both looking forward to having some forced downtime starting in June, and are really looking forward to the weeks and months after the baby comes to clear our schedules and concentrate entirely on our little family.
This weekend has been one of those rare weekends where neither of us had commitments, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed spending the time together. Yesterday we went to the gym, spent a leisurely afternoon grocery shopping at Whole Foods and made a delicious lasagna dinner together. Today we went out to brunch, walked the dog together, and I spent the afternoon baking bread and muffins for the upcoming week. How lovely! Sometimes I think I would be totally happy to never leave my house since Benjamin and I enjoy spending time together so much.
Ok, enough mushy stuff. Hope you’re all having a weekend as relaxing and satisfying as mine!
