During the week I feel a little like I'm running on a hamster wheel. Just living the same day over and over a la Groundhog Day.
Get up, shower, get dressed, wake Mia, dress her, get her to the sitter's, go to work, go pick her up from sitter's, play a little, dinner, bath, baby bed time, chores, mommy time. That's my day. Just rinse and repeat.
I live for the weekends. I did before I became a Working Single Mom. But now those 2 glorious days mean so much more. I get to spend them with my favorite girl.
I've decided Friday evenings are just for mommy and Mia. No chores. No laundry. No have to do anything... other than spend time together. Tonight we went to the park.
It was a beautiful, sunny, not too hot afternoon. Perfect for a walk around the lake where we encountered this... uh, crane? Heron? Big bird? Whatever he was... he was pretty. And apparently not scared of us at all.
Then we stopped to chat with the ducks and the geese for awhile.
Mia enjoyed a little dining al fresco by the water.
We topped off the night with one of Mia's most favorite things ever.
As you can see by the look on her face.
It was a great way to ease into the weekend.
And for me and my girl to relax and reconnect a little after our busy week.
Happy Weekend, y'all!
On a sidenote, anyone know why this blog always cuts off my pics? I changed my blog template thinking maybe that was it. But no. Or why the pics look beautiful and sharp on my computer but get all fuzzy and grainy once I upload them to the blog? But when you click on them to enlarge ...they look fine? I don't get it.
