Should be sleeping.

Almost 11 PM and I’m still up, so I thought I’d blog. Nate is in Chicago for the next couple of days for work, and I’m hanging out with the little man solo.

On Friday, Nate and I are going to Minneapolis to see my brother and his wife perform in an outdoor production of Julius Caesar. We’re excited to see them, and we’re excited for a night away. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but Friday night will be the first night that I’ve been away from Fynn … ever. I’ve never been away from Fynn longer than 10 hours since he’s been born (and before!). My parents are coming down to watch the little guy. They are pretty excited about it, but I’m already feeling emotional about this. I know that I need to do this because in November Nate and I will be going to Mexico for a week. If I don’t spend a couple of nights away to “warm up” to this, I think I’ll be a complete mess in November.

I love summer in Wisconsin; I can’t help myself. It’s green, sunny, warm, and very, very busy. I’m convinced that we all hibernate in the winter and that’s why we make tons and tons of plans in the summer. I seriously need to find a babysitter who isn’t one of my friends because I already need a sitter for about 5 things coming up in June and July. Between parties, weddings, and other events, pretty much every weekend is booked solid for the next 5 weeks, or at least that’s what it feels like.
Ah, well. So glad it’s summer. 🙂

Relaxing at home. :)

Today Fynn and I are hanging out at home. After a busy weekend, it feels nice to sit in the house and do nothing. Although do you ever “do nothing” when you’re a mom? Okay, I admit it, during Fynn’s nap I’ve cleaned up the house, done the dishes, RSVP’d to events coming up, and checked my work e-mail. So I haven’t done “nothing”.

However, on these days I always come up with more things that I could be doing. I think I’m going to restart my plan to read the National Book Award books. I have one book I’d like to read before I start and I might not start with the first winner, but I’d like to do it. We’ll see how that goes…when I start blogging about it, of course.

Other than that, it’s really nice that summer is finally here. It would be nice if the weather stayed under 90 degrees, but alas.
