We also had swimming this morning. N was a good listener but refused to use a smaller bubble. Every week it's a fight. G was very good in the water. It's going to rain later so we may go run some errands.
Last night I may have melted down over the fact that I'm always the one getting up with the boys in the morning while MH stays in bed. MH said he would get up today, and the boys rewarded him by waking up before 6. I stayed in bed until after 7. It was lovely.
Nothing exciting going on here. DH is working this weekend (womp womp), so just me and the kids. DS is outside with my dad while DD just got up from a marathon 3 hour nap, so I was able to get some cleaning done and got a workout in!

Last night I left for an hour when Mr P got home so I could work on my article and then get some milk. I had tons of anxiety because we are still adjusting to me going out after he gets home sometimes. He is fine with it because I am not gone that long. My anxiety told me otherwise and I was crying by the time I got home and ready to quit freelancing. Thankfully he calmed me down and I didn't say anything to my editor about needing a break or anything. I really hope I can get some relief from my anxiety soon. It would make my life so much easier.

I went to yoga this morning with Big P. No one else was there but the instructor and his partner. I felt really anxious being the only one. It is usually a bigger group. We have a birthday party this afternoon and I plan to watch some training videos for MOPS.
@kitchen I'm glad you made it to the symphony! Sorry bout the hangover. WORST.
DH is still sleeping from work last night. DS1 just went down for his nap, so it's just me and the little. I wish it was also HIS naptime. I could use a little extra sleep. As I'm sure we all could...so quit whining Britta.
When DH gets up maybe we'll go get some flowers and things for the garden. I'm feeling optimistic we're done with frost now.
@kitchen - I hope your DD feels better soon. And sorry about the hangover - they're the pits, especially when you have to parent. I had a bit too much wine last night, too, but I don't feel too bad today. I'm a bit tired and I feel like I'm constantly starving.
penguin129 - I'm sorry you're having such a tough time with your anxiety. I can't imagine what that's like.
I'm about to bring DD1 to a birthday party at her friend's house in a few minutes and then I am going shopping by myself. I have to get some more birthday presents for DD2 and some stuff for the house. And sadly I need to try to find some capris for myself because I still can't get myself back on track with the weight loss and I have no warm weather pants that fit me.

jwinct I never understood what Mr. P and my mil went through or meant by anxiety until it happened to me. I think last night was triggered because some residents saw my article and wrote to the commission to ask them to change their minds amd referenced my article. I was happy to write the fluffy stuff, but am not sure the serious stuff is for me (although I am good at it and enjoy it) while I work on managing my anxiety. Cleary I will have lots to talk about in therapy on Friday.
DD1 is all of a sudden really into coloring, so we spent all morning coloring a picture in one of my adult coloring books. I'm really impressed how she can stay in the lines, but maybe just because she's my first I don't know how soon that usually happens.
Guys, MH keeps asking me what I want for Mother's Day. I have no clue... my birthday is in 2 weeks, so nothing huge. Any suggestions?
MH didn't ask...so I'll live vicariously through you...I would ask for... Spa treatment (mani, pedi, massage, etc) New sunglasses or handbag Detail my car
Free things... A long nap or sleeping in tomorrow
Bigger, more involved or expensive things Tickets to a baseball game Arrange a date night (sitter, place to go, etc) Send me to a hotel for a night of uninterrupted sleep
All excellent suggestions. I do need my eyebrows done, so spa day wouldn't suck. I did tell him at the beginning of April that I wanted family pictures done (like you fem) but I guess that didn't solidify itself into his brain?? Men...
