this past weekend, ABN headed to DC for a conference which left EBN and i to fend for ourselves. we did awesome but man, it’s thursday and i’m still exhausted. being a single parent, even temporarily, is no joke.
it turns out friday morning through sunday night can feel like a super long time when you are responsible, on your own, for everything. i’m not sure if i peed and i’m nearly certain i didn’t get more than 2 hours of consecutive sleep (you know, we also had the time change and EBN is no fan of falling back). but we had fun that included a trip to the party supply store for mickey plates and napkins for a mini EBN birthday celebration (more on that next week) and a totally impromptu trip to santa cruz to spend a day in the sun and sand and with a very good friend. and then we ordered sushi, totally not paleo and totally delicious.
i’m not sure who was more excited to see ABN walk through the door. well, in all honesty – we were both asleep when he got home but i sure did cuddle up a bit closer than usual once he was home and EBN let out a shriek that could be heard across our canyon when she climbed into our bed bright and early monday morning.
