The past four days have been a whirlwind. Not sure why I always do this to myself. I finally get a few days off of work with nothing scheduled and instead of using that time to kick-back, relax and rejuvinate myself, I go fill up that time with a million and one things to do leaving me utterly exhausted and on the verge of collapsing afterward. Whew. AND repeat. I never learn.
We made some great memories so that's all that counts, right? On Friday I went to Yamato with the family and some friends and had a nice little birthday dinner. And then afterward I got to open my presents and eat cupcakes from Sweet Arlene's. They were featured on the show "Cupcake Wars," and they were every bit as delicious as they looked:
The next day we woke up bright and early again to get the heck out of dodge and head straight to my parents Memorial Day BBQ. After 3 hours (and we may or may not have fought during the car ride home about the stupidest thing ever) we finally arrived for some fun, sun and BBQ. It was a nice day, but I couldn't help but feel completely drained of every last ounce of energy I had so we left around 6ish.
I almost forgot to mention that we did take Carter to the movies for the very first time! We saw Rio (or at least an hour of it before he become antsy and wanted to move about the theatre). It wasn't cute or entertaining at all. Boo. Carter was more interested in the popcorn and candy and the mini cartoon they show in the beginning - he was in hysterics. Yay! And then the movie began and it did not make him laugh. Boo.
On another completely different note, I was super excited to TTC this cycle but something happened that may cause us to put our plans on hold for a bit. Nothing bad, just a kind of fun opportunity that may or may not play out and not sure if I can say anything so that is all I will say. I'm going to wait it out and see what happens.
