I am SO excited for this week! Brady has a couple of days off for the first time in what feels like FOREVER!!! For a long while, we ran this lovely life of him working four-ish days a week, and it was so nice to count on having him around more than just evenings. We were very spoiled. Now, we’ve been spoiled in a different way, with Brady having TONS of work over the last few months. Its fallen at the best and worst time possible, since he’s basically been running like a chicken with its head cut off since a month before Solly was born. Six SOLID months of work that have kept us comfortable through our big move, higher bills, and having a fourth baby. But its also been so incredibly busy, trying to settle into life here, without him around like he used to be. Really, I can’t complain about either angle. We are so happy about how the last few months have gone. We just miss each other. Longer days and longer weeks make for an exhausted Hailey and Brady.
But this week, he has two days off, smack dab in the middle!!! We are both so excited for some days together to get a few things done. But as we think about all of the things that we should get done in those days, I’m getting discouraged. There are SO MANY THINGS! We could likely fit it all in, but there will be no rest, and very little togetherness. I don’t want Bradys much-anticipated days off to be scheduled out down to the half hour like his work days are :/
Thankfully, he has a shorter work day today! So before everyone gets all ready to go out tonight, we’ll hopefully sit down and make a bit of plan. We’ll pick and choose what needs to be done, and what can wait. I think I need to add “rest” to the physical list, so we don’t forget to include some downtime.
Tomorrow will come, and we’ll get our ducks in a line, but tonight, we trick or treat!! Who wants to see these adorable little ones?!?! They’ll be quite a weird, mismatched group, but now that Dekker isn’t so afraid of people anymore (thank you, kindergarten!) I think it should be even more fun than usual! Plus, we have Solly this year, so we’re up to four cuties!
PS Don’t be alarmed if at least two of the costumes don’t make sense. They don’t make sense to us either. Just go with it!
