Plus? I'm burnt out. Since the beginning of July, my schedule has been GO!GO!GO! If I wasn't working 2-3 shifts a week we were always busy. We were out of town or doing day trips to the city, camping, the lake, our BC vacation, swimming lessons...busy busy!...I wanted a busy summer and I got it. And now, I want summer to be over. I just want to relax. I want to stay in my own house one full day and not be committed to going anywhere. I think that's why I've not been feeling as good with this pregnancy. Busy, on my feet, plus all the heat...makes me sore and achy, so I'm looking forward to relaxing. Well, as much relaxing as I can get with a 2.5 year old to take care of! In the next 3 months, I want lots of coffee visits with friends, play dates with Luke, and snuggles with Blake, and a visit or two to see my mom, GG, and to see Ben, Jess, & Abby's new house. I want to get my maternity pictures taken with Katie. I want to do lots of baking and cooking for harvest. I just want life to calm down before Squishy turns it upside down again (and I mean that in the best of ways!) in November. I want to enjoy a date with my husband, it's been far too long.
Anyone else burnt out from a busy summer? Don't get me wrong...I've loved this summer. Braden had SO much fun and he's at such an enjoyable age. Nothing terrible at all about these twos for us, and that's the truth! But I want to enjoy home time and savor these last 12 weeks as a family of 3. I look so forward to meeting Squishy, but I need to cherish some down time and unwind from the summer shenanigans. I was going to write our "what we've done this summer" list. But just thinking about it makes me more exhausted, so I'll spare us all!
I think my last summer activity will be another trip to the zoo on a cooler day. I did buy a season pass after all...so I might as well make it worth my while! It's fun seeing Braden truly enjoy all these activities this year, this age has just been awesome!
