Well, BUSY week last week. I’ve neglected the blog a little bit because I was so busy solo-Mommin’ last week and trying to stay on top of school. I did make it to the doctor for my stomach but have an appointment with GI later this month, if I go. My issues aren’t nearly as bad as last weekend but I’m still not back to normal at all. It’s really frustrating since I’m nauseous almost constantly and nothing sits right.
Jackson and I got into a little groove with work, daycare pick ups, dinner, and homework last week. It wasn’t so bad and I’m staying ahead of schoolwork, but it’ll be nice to have company this week too.
I had to work on Friday until 3. I stopped by the gym to sign back up for a membership and then got home right after Jon and Jackson. Jon left early on Friday, so he was here to get Jackson from daycare. It was so nice to have them home when I got home!
After Jackson went to bed, Jon and I went to a little outdoor shops area. We decided to grab some dinner since we were both hungry. I ended up accidentally ordering fried chicken (I thought it was grilled), but it was so good! The mac n’ cheese was so good too! Unfortunately, with my stomach issues, I totally paid for it.
We got up on Saturday and hung out with my parents for a bit. I headed out to the gym for a little while while Jon ran some errands with Jackson. I got home in time to shower and grab a bite to eat before Jon and I put Jackson down for a nap and headed out the door! (Note: We can have a life again because we have live-in babysitters again!)
Jon and I went to the outlets in Woodstock to exchange a shirt that I had bought, except this outlet mall didn’t have the same shirts. I grabbed a few more basics for my internship (I can wear them with jeans- just tanks and cardigans) and then we stopped at Chipotle (did not agree with my stomach) before heading downtown for the Gator game.
We met up with Andrew and his girlfriend, Liz, at Fado in Buckhead. It was so packed! I enjoyed people watching, but man, did I feel old. All these styles are coming back in (bodysuits, leotards, Adidas shelltop shoes, overalls, high waisted shorts) and I am so not a fan of the look. Thankfully, I’m 31 now and don’t need to look cool, so I can stick to my Target v-necks. The game was so incredibly long and I don’t like football (hence the reason I was checking out the current trends on all the young girls).
It finally ended close to 7 and Jon and I had to go check on Laura’s cats. We did that and then went to grab ice cream. It was bedtime by the time we got home from doing all of that, so we basically went straight to bed when we got in.
I headed to the gym again on Sunday morning. It’s so strange being in a gym with so many machines again! My gym here is probably 5 times the size of my Charleston gym and I was just so used to the simplicity of my Charleston gym. But I decided to try out some back machines and I definitely did get in a good back workout.
I came home and did some schoolwork while Jon hung out with Jackson. Jon had plans in the afternoon so it was just me and my bub!
Once Jackson was up from his nap, my mom and I took him to the park so he could run around. It’s so nice in Atlanta right now- such a welcomed change from Charleston! We had a good time at the park. We even attempted to go on a walk with Jackson, but toddler walks are impossible. We didn’t make it far!
Jon got home before Jackson’s bedtime on Sunday, so we hung out around the house for a bit. I was in my pajamas and ready for bed, but Jon wanted ice cream again. I wasn’t feeling well so I knew I should have skipped the ice cream, but I can’t turn it down when we go out! Big mistake! I felt so horrible afterwards. Jon fell asleep as soon as we got home and I was up for an hour feeling like I wanted to die.
Labor Day! Also the day Jon had to leave again! Sad face. I skipped the gym in the morning because I wanted to maximize my time with Jon. We had breakfast with Jackson and then decided to go to a coffee shop to do some trip planning.
Everything was closed, so we got stuck at Panera. But we booked our October trip to FRANCE! Our plan had been Eastern Europe (roadtrip from Prague to Tatra Mountains to Budapest) but we slacked and missed the flights. Way too many Skymiles (it was 60,000 last time I looked) so we decided to go to France. I’ve been wanting to go anyway but was set on a fall trip in Eastern Europe since we loved Poland so much, but oh well! Next time! Our plan is to fly into Paris and roadtrip through Alsace and Burgundy and then go into the Alps. We may try to make it out to Normandy, but not sure if we’ll have time. And obviously, cap the trip with a few days in Paris.
We got home and Jon and I headed out almost immediately to go check on Laura’s cats again. We got home right before Jackson’s nap ended, so we hopped in bed in hopes of quick afternoon cat naps. Except my cat snuggled up on Jon and snored the whole time, so I never fell asleep.
Jon left immediately once Jackson was up, so Jackson and I had the evening to ourselves. I managed to get one discussion posting out of the way (took almost three hours with a toddler here). We cooked and had dinner and played outside and had baths.
My oldest sister, Tonie, came into town last night around 7pm. We hung out on the porch for awhile. She leaves today around three today. I have to intern, so I won’t get to see her much, but she’ll be back in a few days to stay longer.
Another week of interning and work, but I’m going to try and get some workouts in this week. At home and at the gym. I’ve been slacking on home workouts, but I guess with my stomach being such a problem, I’m just way less motivated. Even my workouts at the gym have been much easier than I’m used to.
