I started this post last week on Thursday - I wrote a paragraph then spaced out and never finalized or posted - so I'll include my original intro along with a quick 'catch-up' blurb...
I honestly don't remember what else happened on Thursday. Friday was a whirlwind of preparation for shabbos. We had Rikuda&co over for the weekend. It was quite the exciting get-together. Shaleshudes at The FamBily House - Rudy and a friend were there too. Our guests stayed over motzash - but left super early on Sunday morning in reorder to make a meeting near their house. Yesterday Buzz and I cleaned up the house from our crazy party weekend. Then we went out to the park for about an hour and a half.
This morning was Buzz's first morning at gan! Z took him and I picked him up. He had a tough time dealing with the fact that we weren't there but the teacher said that during structured activities he had a great time. He was very relived when when I showed up to take him home. We hung out at The FamBily House for a while. When the mailman passed by he dropped off a super special letter for me from Aunt Foo!!!
Then we went out to the shopping center at Bilu with the Parentals and S&S. It was a delightful few hours. We wandered through the mall, and enjoyed the breeze, and the company. S&S treated us to awesome presents which we really appreciated! After our excursion we went back to The FamBily House and eventually Z came home.
Dinner then we dashed to get Buzz into bed. Thankfully he settled down and conked out after a 'quick' 20 minute bedtime-routine.
Hopefully he'll get lots of rest tonight. If he stays in his own bed I'd be extremely grateful. Hoping for an early morning wake-up so that we can give Buzz a bath before sending him off to gan. Tomorrow pick-up is at 11am - so it's a short-day but I'm planning to relish the quiet while I can.
