I overbooked myself this past weekend. I knew it, I admitted it, I was annoyed with myself about it, but I had a plan and for once the plan worked and thanks to David’s help and support I was able to make it to all my commitments and enjoyed most of them. At the end of the weekend I was exhausted but pretty happy about how it went.

We’ve got a fairly normal week ahead of us. Liam is following up with the doctor for his 9-month “well check” today; it’s in quotes because his breathing still sounds bad to me, but I think his infections are gone, at least. Meredith woke up happy and independent today, so for that I am very grateful.

I decided to go ahead and attempt week in the life after all, even though I’m intimidated by it. I’m in full-on documentation mode now, and so far so good.

Here’s to a lovely week. :)

    From yours truly, melissa:

    Whoa that does sound like a full weekend. I’m glad you were happy with how it went :)

    From Lisa of Lisa's Yarns:

    That is a busy weekend! I have been over booking myself lately too and it has resulted in me not enjoying the things I said yes to as much as I should because it feels like I am just checking them off a list… sort of… So I am going to try to plan less in November! But it’s good that you ended your weekend happy with how it went!

    From Nora:

    I’m notorious for overbooking and then freaking the heck out when I do… it drives Knight crazy because he has to talk me off a ledge which ultimately results in me freaking out a bit more as I don’t do well when people tell me to “calm down.” (does that work for anyone?)

    Hope your week is going well so far and that Liam’s check-up goes ok!

    From Tina:

    I hope the check up goes well. I love how you made the oxygen mask? all cuteness. Well done. I’m excited for your week in the life!
