Wow – it’s been 4 whole days since I’ve blogged. We’ve been busy around here!
We have a new geothermal unit and I am relieved! It’s so nice knowing that the water is no longer a threat to M, that we’ll have cool air when we need it (of course, our heat wave snapped the day after we got the new unit), and that if we need to turn the heat on again, that we will have that too. It’s amazing how much stress can be relieved with one action. Since buying this house almost two years ago, the geothermal has always been a problem so we would hold our breaths every time we’d switch from heat to cool, etc. That anxiety is gone now, and I am just so happy about that!
M is feeling just fine – so fine that he got his first hair cut on Friday! He handled it so well and actually enjoyed it. He smiled and laughed through most of it, never cried, and made it really easy for all of us (hair stylist included)! I had no idea how much work was going to go into his hair cut – she even pulled out the clippers! It looks just great and I’m pleased that he still looks like my baby and not like a big boy just yet. He got his first balloon too and that put the cherry on his sundae!
We had a nice little picnic with our friends on Sunday and it was 80 degrees out – almost too hot if you weren’t moving around. I cannot believe this spring so far – it feels like summer and it makes me worry that the summer is going to be insanely hot like it was last year. There’s nothing we can do about it, but I really am hoping for a nice break in the heat just to get things back to where they should be for the month of April.
I mowed the lawn yesterday – one of my favorite things to do in the summer months (truly!) – and that was so nice! I didn’t want to come inside. M was sleeping so it gave me time to really focus on what I was doing and I loved every minute of it. The grass is perfectly green! We did set M in the grass for a few pictures earlier last week but I took more yesterday after cutting the grass and they are really cute! He loved playing with the grass and tried eating some of the clippings. I really think he’s going to enjoy the summer!
M and I met B for lunch today. B was having lunch with his coworker and they informed me that they need to go to Chicago TOMORROW for an impromptu, but very important, meeting with a client. I invited M and myself along because my sister lives just north of there and we were supposed to spend this past weekend with her but couldn’t due to wanting to be close to home in case M got sick again. So we are taking a road trip in the morning! It should be a lot of fun! My sister is expecting her 3rd baby (but 4th child) any day now, and I asked today if I could be in the delivery room with her if she has the baby while we’re there. She’s a good sport and said yes, so we’re all hoping that that happens this week.
I am just so excited to see my sister – she is my best friend. M is going to love seeing his cousins – he loves being a little brother. B and I are excited to spend the final night of the trip together, with M, downtown for a little getaway. I had no idea just yesterday that this week was going to be so exciting!
