Happy, happy Friday! Oh, I’m so glad it’s the weekend! And last night our whole family actually got some sleep, which was much-needed. (I’ve had bad pregnancy insomnia and allergies keeping me awake for over a week, and then Jackson had three nights of intense nightmares keeping us all awake all night long; it was a good refresher for nights with a newborn, I guess . . .). Anyhow, it was a long week and I’m glad it’s just about over. And I’m sneaking away this weekend for a little R&R on my own, which I’m quite excited about, too. I plan to sleep and read and sleep some more.
Thanks again for indulging me and Jackson in our little Dear Jackson experiment yesterday. He loved playing and was really tickled to see his videos on the site and know other people were watching them, too. Maybe we will do it again some time. By the way, the photo above is Jackson in his happy place — new play-doh, a brief stop at Chuck E. Cheese (my personal hell, but he loves it), and spending time with mom and dad. I thought the photo captured one of the better moments of the Thrilling Threes pretty well.
Changing topics: I thought this was an interesting debate. What would you do if your mother promised you a family heirloom engagement ring but wanted to hand it to you in person and wasn’t going to come visit before you wanted to be engaged? If it were I, I’d make a weekend trip to go visit her, pick up the ring, talk about its family history, fly home, give the ring to my boyfriend to have it re-set or sized or whatever, and then tell him to give it back to me when he wanted to propose. In fact, that’s exactly what I did do (granted, my visit home was already planned, but, if going to visit my parents was the best/only way to get the ring, I think that would be reason enough to go . . . like, beyond seeing my parents, of course, as a ticket home is still cheaper than most engagement rings).
Anyway, what’s everyone up to this weekend, the last weekend of March (hooray, hooray, it’s almost April!)?
