I woke up this morning to a gray day with a husband in the shower and a child running around our room. Even though I had gotten enough sleep I felt tired and worn. It was a long weekend filled with many events. By 6pm yesterday I was done with the day. I was ready to sleep and start Monday fresh. However, with Logan in Boulder I had destructoSadie on my hands - she was not worn out by our weekend festivities. I waited until 9 and got us both to bed. Around 12:30 my hubby finally came home and I woke up minutes before hearing the keys in the door. I jumped out of bed and greeted him.
Sunday without Logan wasn't the same. I felt cheated of my husband.
This morning getting out of bed with aching muscles was not easy. Between running and Zumba I have been extremely sore for a week now.
Next week I have two big events lined up, both I am anticipating for different reasons. On the 19th I will be at the Planning Commission Workshop for the Vista General Plan Update 2030; they are intending to take property from many homeowners on my street. Logan and I will be severely impacted by this decision.
This house has been both a blessing and a headache in many ways. Between a neighbor issue (he has 1/3 of an acre of our property fenced in), gophers, coyotes, poison oak and the constant need for maintenance - we have our hands full. Our Sundays are preoccupied with land maintenance. Our 1952 home continues to need improvement, something that has been on hold for over a year as we attempt to save up the money.
Sometimes I wish it was like the game SIMS where I could put in a code and have unlimited money. I could buy whatever I wanted, build whatever kind of house I wanted - I was in infinitely rich mode. However, once I built the house and filled it with the most expensive stuff I could get, I was bored. There was nothing left to do with the game. The whole point was the struggle.
I also have an ICAN meeting next Friday late afternoon. It's partner night and I am dragging Logan with me. I want us to really feel like we can do a VBAC together.
Today my house is thrashed. The floor is disgusting thanks to Sadie's efforts. Logan cleaned out my car and threw everything into the entrance of the house. There is a huge pile waiting to be explored.
This week feels like a waiting week. It's the moment before the bomb explodes. Everything is quiet and ready.
