How was the weekend?
We had a nice weekend filled with swimming, reading, shopping, attempts at crawling, and lots of Olympic watching.
Friday night after Lula was in bed, Pa and I watched the Olympic opening ceremonies. I’ve got to say, I thought the opening ceremonies were, overall, too artsy for me to enjoy. I liked the pastoral scenes and the Industrial Revolution but after that, I started zoning out. If Matt and Meredith hadn’t been narrating, there would have been lots of things that wouldn’t have made any sense at all. Overall, there was just too much going on and for an audience to watch it once, it couldn’t be fully appreciated, in my opinion.
Saturday morning was cool again! 62 degrees? We’ll take it! We got in a nice six miles before getting home and getting Lula down for her morning nap.
The big trip of the day was to Home Depot to pick up the final pieces for Lula’s birthday gift that Pa is making her.
She and I danced around the store (it was dead in there) and enjoyed getting out of the house thoroughly!
Since she skipped her afternoon nap, she was worn out by 6:30. Bath time and some yummy cereal rounded out her evening, she fell asleep nursing, and Pa and I were free!
We drank a well-deserved beer, grilled burgers, and enjoyed some Olympic watching until bedtime.
Sunday was kind of a rough day for Lula. She struggled with her naps and bedtime and I tried to stay positive, even though she was “sapping my strength,” as Elaine would say.
Her morning nap was hard to come by, lasted less than an hour, and she was fairly cranky after that.
She and I took our weekly trek to the outlets nearby our house and wandered around Carter’s and the GAP Outlet. Everything was 40% off at Carter’s but since most things are already on sale on a normal day, and those sales weren’t also taking place, I didn’t think prices were much of a bargain. They had some cute ballet flats but they were $12! I can get ballet flats for myself at that price (or less) so we passed on those.
I thought that with pool time, Lula would pass out easily at bedtime, but I was mistaken. Twice I went back to her room and she was standing up in her crib…I think it was almost 8 PM before she finally fell asleep for the night.
We’ve got errands to run today and I hope to get to the city pool with her at least once this week as well. Have a fantastic Monday!
