Memorial Day Weekend

I love long weekends! I mean, really, what's not to love?
I really wanted to use the weekend to do some much-needed Spring Cleaning. So, on Friday, I tackled my bookshelf. I sell/give away a lot of books, but there are some that no one wants - me included. So, I put those aside to donate. On Saturday, I walked to CVS to pick up a few things and then mostly napped and read. It was a relaxing start to the weekend. Then, Sunday hit.

On Sunday, we woke up early to meet a high school friend for breakfast. His wife and baby were supposed to be there, but they were sick. Their baby is only 6 weeks younger than Baby is. Then, we went to Husband's parents' apartment. Their apartment is across the street, but their pool is outdoor whereas ours is indoor. We were really curious how Baby would take to the pool. She does love her bath. She had her sandals, her hat, her bikini, her cover up, her sunglasses. We got the water diapers and sunscreen.
We were all set. We even had a pack-n-play for the outdoors. It has a canopy to keep out the sun. Well, she was overdue for a nap and just fussy all afternoon. She was very clingy and fussy and hated the pool. She screamed and cried the minute any part of her touched the water. Overall, it was a fun day - lots of food, drink, and sun. I got a little sunburned and a couple of bug bites, but that just means it's officially summer! Also, in celebration, I wore my white pants today.

To recover, she spent almost all Monday sleeping off the trauma while I finished Spring Cleaning. I didn't completely finish, but I did the closets, main room, and bathroom. I also switched Baby's clothes in the nursery. I packed away all the 0-6 month clothes and hung up all her new clothes. So, only the 6-9 month clothes are in the closet. It's much easier to pull out clothes when you don't have to pick through 5 different sizes!

I should finish the rest of the Spring Cleaning tonight... even if it kills me. I've been recording movies for months to help the process along. The bedroom is always the room that is done last. No one sees it so it's easiest to forget. Tonight, I will finish it.
