It was a very busy weekend. On Friday, I took a half day off of work to travel to Bethesda, MD. I wanted to avoid the traffic. I walked around Bethesda and mostly spent the time watching streaming video on my iPod and nook. I've been mildly obsessed (read that as extremely obsessed - like watched 5 seasons in about 3 weeks). The signing was fantastic. Although I've met Kristin Hannah a few times, this was the first real signing I've attended. Plus, I got there so early that I had time to say goodnight to Little Miss before bedtime.
On Saturday, I woke up with Little Miss and then went to book club. We discussed the book and met at Founding Farmers. It was delicious as always, and we even discussed the book briefly. After, I went home and tidied up because Little Miss had a sleepover with her older cousin. They played, ate dinner, had a bath and then had some quiet time in bed. As a matter of fact, they put themselves to bed and fell asleep earlier than I was going to let them stay up.
On Sunday, Nephew woke up with Little Miss (though it's probably more truthful to say he woke up Little Miss). I heard them playing and then Nephew fixed Little Miss breakfast. At some point, Husband woke up to supervise. Then, I woke up and took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese and met up with Sister and her boyfriend. I woke up feeling poorly so I feel lucky I survived the day at all. Still, Little Miss had a blast and the mother of all naps when we got home. My parents stopped in briefly in the evening and now we're just doing dinner and bedtime.
The weekend was busy, but it was planned well in advance. Now we just have a few more busy weekends to go before we get to exhale and relax again. Hopefully, I can kick this cold some time in February. I've had it since last month and today got some additional fun symptoms. I'd like to be clear of all of it if possible without going back to the doctor, but we'll have to see.
