I cannot believe it is already 2019. I know, I know … everyone says that each new year.
But seriously, how is it 2019?! Without further ago, here’s what went on in my life this past week:
New Year’s Eve was quiet. I did some crocheting, we watched the Times Square ball drop, we clinked glasses and sipped champagne.
New Year’s Day was industrious. It was (still) unseasonably warm here, so I went on a nice long run in the sunshine and took Piglet on a walk. Then I spent all afternoon and evening deep cleaning the kitchen, sweeping and mopping the whole house, vacuuming bedrooms, sorting laundry, etc. Can I just say, I LOVE cleaning. (Super sexy and exciting, I know!)
The rest of the work week passed in a blur. Despite being a stay-at-home-mom, I still think of Monday through Friday as the work week. It’s damn hard work caring for him 11 hours straight five days a week. On the weekends my husband is kind enough to let me get a break and have a great deal more “me time.”
On Friday, Jordan and I got out of the house and met up with my former boss for lunch. I absolutely adore her (and no, she doesn’t read this blog, so I have no incentive to say that), so it was really good to catch up. I miss her and my former workplace dearly. Some days I miss it so much that I regret leaving to be a SAHM. But then I see Jordan smile and remember why I made this choice. Even though Jordan isn’t quite on solids yet, he enjoyed the chance to flirt with a pretty lady!
This weekend, the weather was (still) warm. I had a really awesome long run outdoors, then my dad came to visit
me Jordan. He brought me a strawberry macaron too!
Sunday I was an absolute blob and just recovered from my Saturday run and did next to nothing.
So far this week I’ve been working on craft stuff, but it’s a tad disheartening since my Etsy traffic has dropped significantly now that the holidays are over. If I’m honest, my postpartum anxiety has been getting the better of me lately. I plan to write a post about it soon, to explain what it feels like to me.
Tell me, what have you been up to this past week?
Until next time,
