I remember pre-baby Saturdays were my lazy days. I had a full time job plus I was going to school full time. So when Saturdays rolled around, I slept in late, goofed off at home, went and had brunch with the Mr. and did absolutely nothing of importance.
I worked hard all week long, so I deserved a day (or two) to just be lazy and nothing. It worked well for years.
Post baby, there's no such thing as lazy days. My days are filled to the brim with making sure Roo gets adequate outdoor time, healthy lunches and snacks, preparing dinner, playing and cleaning. My Saturdays are just as crazy, normally full of errands that have me running all over town. I have to get diapers at Target, apples from Publix, story time at the bookstore, playtime at the park.
And today's Saturday is even more crazier b/c we leave tomorrow night for our vacation to South Carolina. So along with all of my normal craziness of errands and diapers, I have lists of things to pack, clothes to stuff into a suitcase, toys to bring, etc.
We're traveling for the first time by train and I'm very anxious. I'm worried about whether Roo will be able to sleep, will she scream blooody-murder? Will I be able to find a power cord for my laptop? Is my ipod going to be charged and ready?
I'm just praying all will go well, no other passengers will give me dirty look for my unruly child and we don't have too many layovers.
Wish me luck.
