We were supposed to spend more time in Connecticut this weekend, after my father-in-law's birthday party, going to the beach and staying in a hotel. I'd been excited to do this, but when Max got his cast, they strongly advised against a trip to the beach. I knew it would be too tempting for him to even be near the beach, and so I was bummed when we had to change our plans.
But it actually worked out really well. I'm not falling further behind, like I would have if we'd been away. Instead, I'm staying caught up. I took the kids to a movie, and they're each going on playdates today. We bought birthday gifts for the five events they have coming up between them. I watched a movie with Marc too. I'm going to get a little bit of time to myself.
The weather hasn't been great here this weekend, and if it had been perfect beach weather, I might have been sadder about missing out. But there will be more beach weekends, and I'm happy to have had a little bit less activity this time around.
