Today is packing day! I collected a few things, charged up some stuff, like back up battery packs and cords and such, including my FitBit watch, yesterday. This day is for laundry and packing, prepping the house for my husband to do things solo and my parents to watch them while he works tomorrow and Friday. That means a lot of laundry, grocery shopping (Thank you, Instacart) and cleaning. I hate leaving a mess of anything for my parents to start with. That way they don’t feel too overwhelmed when they first walk in. It also makes me feel better that I left a clean slate behind when I leave. The kids are all still sick, including myself and the husband. I hope us adults are able to stay somewhat well enough to manage this weekend. I want to socialize and yet still not scare people off by looking like death. If I have to, I will take meds but as a nursing mom, its really taboo on the supply. TMI probably. Anyways, best of luck to my husband and parents. The kids, though sick, have been pretty good considering it’s also spring break.
Now, I don’t fit much since I’m still trying to lose weight from my last baby I am really apprehensive with my wardrobe. It’s going to be warmer in Atlanta and I hope I just don’t look too frumpy. I refuse to get new clothes because we just bought a really good cardio machine and it kicks my butt everytime I’m on it. I know I will lose that weight in the next couple weeks. So, I’m stuck with the slim selection of clothes that fit me for this trip. Though, it may not make a difference if I’m too sick to go out and socialize much after the actual summit activities. 🤷♀️
In other news, I just found that there’s a phone app for Microsoft Word and my mind is officially blown. This means I can now write with my kids around. They don’t let me sit much in front of my iPad, even when I think they are preoccupied doing their own thing. At this very moment I had to bribe my son with pudding to sit down for five minutes while I write this.
And the baby is crying, so off I go!
More to come tomorrow! Have a great hump day, everyone!
