Yes, I know it's pretty pathetic that it's Wed night and I'm STILL writing about the past weekend (and I still have one more day of it to post about).
Before I get to it though...I need to vent a bit. Today has been one of THOSE days. The kind that I feel like I've developed post-partem depression 3 years later. The kind that I would love to have a few glasses of wine to mellow out. The kind of day that I want to punch the dogs in the face if they bark one more time. The kind of day that if I find one more toy outside chewed up by Sophie I am going to start bawling. The kind of day that I just want to be left alone! I feel like the worst mom on the planet cause Katie has been a good girl, just SO clingy. I have not been able to go to the bathroom by myself today (or without being touched). I have not been able to do any task for more than 10 minutes at a time without being interupted. When I hear, "Mooommmy!" today, I feel like someone is scratching a chalkboard...I am spoiled in the fact that I DO have 2 hours to myself every morning...but I feel like I need to disappear for a day. I need a massage...I need to stare at the ocean...I need to do SOMETHING that I can just zone out and not think about anything...oh Debi, please don't be sick, so I can come visit tomorrow and we can be miserable together :)
Ok - I feel a little better...it also helps a bit that my little girl is so darned cute and makes me laugh all day long at her antics that I can't stay frustrated with her for TOO long...
So, this past Saturday, Katie, my BFF Christina, her adorable baby girl Mackenzie, and I had plans to meet up with some friends at Johnson's Farm in Medford. I unfortunately woke up in the morning feeling awful...still had my sugar out of whack from starting the new medication the night before and I couldn't move. I was so nervous I wouldn't be able to go, but after calling in to my OB office - I was told the dose was likely too high and to start taking 1/2 of the pills at a time. Thank goodness that made quite a difference.
So, we got together with our gymnastic friends Max and CJ, their parents, and Max's cutie pie sister Elaina. The kids really had a great time. I was actually suprised by just how excited Katie was about the day. I told her about it a few days in advance and it was all she could talk about. On Saturday morning, as she was getting ready for gymnastics she even said she didn't want to go cause she wanted to go pick apples and pumpkins at the farm. She didn't realize we planned the day so she could do both :).
Here are the pics from our fun, fun, day....
