Real Life - How Our Anniversary Went Down (A Timeline)

  • Trent woke us up about 7:30. I should have gotten up an hour before this, but the time change back from Vegas was not allowing it. 
  • Got T set up watching a video {Shaun the Sheep}, got him some breakfast {gluten free pretzels and apple/carrot/water of the year} and got in the shower. Brent still in bed because he came to bed at 2:00 AM. Force him to kiss me for our anniversary.
  • Rush, rush, rush. Out the door at 8:50. Happy anniversary!  Love you. Smooch, smooch {air kisses}. 
  • Many hours later, realize I did not give Trent a drink in his lunch.  Hope his teachers gave him some water.
  • Work. 
  • Argue with B over paint. Pregnancy hormones almost unglue me. Barely hold it together; luckily he offers a good solution.
  • Head to a client meeting WAY across town.  Rain starts.
  • Nana begins painting the nursery!
  • Leave meeting at 5:00. Make it home at 6:50. Fear I will run out of gas on the way home.
  • Play. T refuses to eat dinner. I eat it. No clue what B eats {Ruffles and Ranch dip maybe?}. No bath for T because he's spending the day with Nana.
  • Bedtime by 8:30. Battle ensues until 10:00 to get him to stay in bed. Mom and Dad victorious although room looks like said battle zone. {Therapy update soon because we have identified some HUGE things, and I'm feeling very optimistic!}
  • Work. Blog. Read. B watches TV.
  • Bedtime.
And that, my friends, is how a real anniversary looks. {grin}

Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to have a child who eats whatever I put in front of her and who goes to bed without a fuss. Who knew it could be so mentally exhausting at such a young age?! Happy Anniversary to y'all! Sounds like many of our anniversaries... :-)

Glad to know we aren't the only ones just trying to survive, even on special occasions! Happy 8 years! Although, what is it like 20 total of being together?!
