Happy husband-free weekend to you deer-hunter widows. Yep...I'm one of them. Perhaps I get wife of the year award for being so fine with my husband leaving me at less than 3 weeks post partum?!?!? Or...perhaps I just get a diaper full of sh*t. Either way, I'm hoping my main man has a nice relaxing weekend and comes home well rested and rejuvenated. Really, I'm ok with single parenting it for a few days. Dave only takes time for himself once a year, and this weekend is it. So, I'm glad he was still planning on going.
Plus, I have an awesome mom who is willing to help her daughter out for the weekend! So, I won't be alone.
In a late night/ early morning epiphany, I realized that I am horribly over-extended. I have too many balls in the air, and I lay awake trying to figure out how not to drop any of them.
And my conclusion to this problem?
Yep...I'm letting balls drop.
I'm giving up a few things in order to make room for other things that need my attention/ are less time consuming.
The fact that I'm still working and I have a newborn isn't helping my stress level....but hopefully after a weekend of work-focused time, I will be able to turn over some completed audits and unhand some uncompleted audits. That way I can rest and figure out a schedule with the baby before I head back to work after the first of the year (which is our BUSY season...so I'll be jumping into the fire).
So, anyway...that's my week in a nutshell. Let's answer some questions:
1. What snacks/ drinks do you bring to the movies?
I bring my own in. I'm not about to take out a mortgage on the house just for some popcorn. So, the boys and I will head to the store and they pick out a box of movie theater candy for $1 (note: the SAME box in the theater is $ 4.25!!!!). Then we bring in water bottles for drinks. Thank goodness for big purses.
Do I feel guilty? No, no I do not.
2. What is one food you ever refuse to try?
I cannot stomach knowing that I'd be eating a sheep's you-know-whats fried up. Nope, not for me.
3. What is your favorite nail polish color?
Well...I don't know what the colors are called exactly, but I saw this on Pintrest, and I loved it.
4. What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
Chillin' with my family. In a cozy house. And taking a nap. :)
5. What are your least favorite words in the English language?
I dislike slang words...such as "ain't"...but the word that just grates on me is a derogatory word:
Starts with "C" and ends in "unt." I hate that word with a passion.
