I hate Mondays. They are never good for me. I like Saturday and Sunday so much because Jake is home all day and lately has been so good about doing stuff with the boys like taking them on bike rides and walks. It’s nice. Today he is outprocessing, then he’s coming home to take the boys on a bike ride. He’ll be heading to bed at around 7 when the boys go because he has to be up at about 1 to get ready for the cab to pick him up around 2/2:30. Speaking of the cab, I need to call and set up a pick-up time. 😯
My plan while he is gone is to leave the house at least once a day. On a normal day I never leave the house. On a normal WEEK I never leave the house. 😆 I figure though that with Jake gone, it will do me good to get out at least once, and it will be good for the boys too. I *hope* to take them with me to the gym in the mornings and let them play in the “family room” even if all I do is walk on a treadmill. I also want to take them to the indoor play area when I can to let them burn off some energy. I’m still undecided on story time at the library. In the past when I took them, they were less than cooperative. Dylan does really well in there, but the other two don’t have the attention span for it. Especially Owen. 😕 Not sure what I’ll do there.
I told Jake last night I’m tempted to let Dylan sleep in our bed while he’s gone but we ended up agreeing that was a bad idea. Dylan gets too attached to sleeping in our bed and we’d never get him out of it again if I let something like that go on for three weeks. I just hate sleeping in a big empty bed all by myself. Aidan in our bed is a downright joke. 😆 The kid will whisper all night long if I let him. He is a horrible bed buddy. haha! And Owen, well, he’s like Dylan, gets too attached and ends up thinking it’s his bed. So, I get a huge empty bed all to myself I guess. *sigh* Hey, maybe I’ll give Peanut a good bath and let HIM sleep with me? Maybe? heehee 😆
I have big plan for while Jake is gone too. 🙄 I want to try and get everything in the whole house organized…. laundry, playroom, boys rooms, our room, storage room upstairs. All of that. We’ll see though. It’s always good to hope, right? No? 😆 😆 haha! My mom is laughing at me right now. I can just hear her.
