Five on Friday

ONE: We had a lovely, low-key Easter. We went to church, had lunch at my grandma’s house and visited with my aunts and cousin, and grilled burgers on our new grill for dinner.┬áLife is very different than it was on Easter last year. Last year, we spent Easter at my in-laws’. My MIL was still alive. D wasn’t even walking. I’m so glad we spent Easter there, but I’m so sad she’s not here to see Sam’s first Easter.

TWO: This stuff is the cat’s pajamas. I have to be very careful though, or else I’ll drink the entire bottle in one night.

THREE: I’m already halfway through my maternity leave. In some ways, it feels like Sam was just born a week ago, but in others, it feels like I haven’t been to work in 3 months. While part of me misses my job and coworkers and my daily routine, another part of me is dreading leaving my boys day after day. We have some big decisions to make regarding childcare these next few weeks and the thought of it just gives me heart palpitations so I’ve been putting it off. Please say a little prayer that we get this figured out soon and relatively painlessly!

FOUR: The weather is FINALLY getting nicer (although it’s apparently only 50 degrees outside at the moment). We’ve taken a few family trips to the park to stretch our legs and get some fresh air and it’s been wonderful. I’m still woefully out of shape, but I just bought some new cross-trainers so hopefully I can motivate myself to start working out now.

FIVE: Speaking of my health, my postpartum glucose test results came back and I DO NOT HAVE DIABETES!! Hooray!! In fact, my levels were well within the normal range so I wasn’t even borderline. That’s a HUGE relief. Now, someone give me a brownie.

Happy weekend, friends!
