Weekend Updates

Had a great weekend. On Saturday, I cleaned the house like a demon while Tom got his car brakes fixed at the repair shop. I had amazing energy. After I finished the house, I went right to the yard and finished all the weeding in the flower beds and put down Preen to keep the weeds at bay. This is the first time I'm using Preen, so I'm not sure how it's going to go yet. After that, we went out for dinner with friends.

Sunday, Father's Day, Tom was supposed to go to Virginia for work. He found out he needed to on Saturday because of issues with a project down there. So we changed our plans that we wouldn't see Phoebe and his parents on Father's Day. I was a bit bummed, but figured when he got back Sunday night, we could have some relaxing time together. When he went to leave, I noticed he had an overnight bag. I asked him what was in the bag. He said "A change of clothes." I asked what he needed a change of clothes for and he said he was staying overnight because he had to be there first thing in the morning! I was shocked. He was leaving and I didn't know I wasn't going to see him until late the next day. I started getting all teary-eyed. Thirteen years of marriage and I still get teary-eyed if I'm not prepared for him to be away for a long time. Thankfully, he ended up turning around and coming back. He found out that the folks at the Virginia site were leaving soon and he wouldn't see them that day, so he figured he might as well just leave early Monday morning and we could still go see his folks and Phoebe.

Phoebe's doing OK. She's having a great time at her grandparents. Her cousin Jake was staying overnight and they were talking about getting up early to help make breakfast and "Da's coffee" in the morning. The are too cute together. Almost like brother and sister. Her stomach was hurting yesterday and there was a stomach virus going around the house, but it sounds like she just got it very mild. Her stomach hurt and that was all. It definately didn't keep her from going in the pool and wrestling with Jake on the sofa. I called this morning and she's feeling much better.

I have my every other week appointment with my acupuncturist tomorrow. I'm curious to see how he feels my pulse points are doing. I've been trying very hard to take deep breaths and relax. Today I went and sat at the park for lunch, ate, read some of "The Fertile Female." It's funny I was realizing how decadent it felt just to sit by myself and chill out. For so many years I've always had to be pushing myself to do more and be more. It felt so bad (yet so good) to just sit with my own thoughts and relax on a park bench under a tree.
