Who thinks that traveling 3 hours away with a 2 week old, a stroller, golf clubs, and a 100 lb dog is a good idea? Oh, you do too? Great, want to come help me pack?
B and I are taking Spencer and Junie up north to my mom's for the weekend. We're leaving Sat a.m. and heading back on Monday. We've been debating the trip all week- it seems like a lot after the c-section and with a tiny, tiny baby, but it's one of the bestie's baby shower and the other bestie's little sister's wedding, so how could we not go? B has made me promise to take naps in between events when Spencer is napping, and we definitely won't be going out on the town as per our normal. I really don't care if all we do is walk, have meals, and visit with a few friends, I just want to be up there!! It's going to be a gorgeous weekend as well- in the high 70s, low 80s. Usually it's only in the 50s or 60s this early in the season, so the fact that I can wear summer clothes will make me a happy camper (well, those that fit anyway- oh, and can be functional for breastfeeding- that's like 2 things in my closet!).
In other news, B and I took Spencer and Junie for their first walk with the stroller last night. We went for an hour, and it was great. While I could feel it slightly near the incision site, it really felt good to stretch my legs and use my body for something other than feeding my little man. I also weeded in the garden for 1.5 hours when B and Spence were napping in the afternoon, which also really made me feel awake, alive, and somewhat normal again. Yea!! I can feel my body waking up again :)
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I hope it is wonderful and full of sunshine!!
