Great Weekend

Our past several weekends have been a mixture of all things. A couple weekends ago, we had a relaxing, laze around the house kind of day, where despite all being cooped up inside we were laid back and didn't get on each others nerves. The weekend that followed was not the same story. We attempted to interrupt the downward spiral with a trip to DC and the Air and Space Museum, but that was useful mostly for occupying the majority of the day and moving our family togetherness beyond the confines of the house.

This last weekend, we scheduled some fun family and friends time and tried to take last minute advantage of Henry's ability to be out and among other people. On Saturday we had some family friends over to visit as well as Tara's sister's family. The little boys enjoyed playing together while the adults chatted. In the afternoon we took a trip up to Mechanicsburg to spend some time with close friends and their twin girls, who are roughly Sophie's age. Once again, the kids played and the adults talked. A good time was had by all.

Saturday night, Henry was once again the victim of steroids. Although he'd had them on Friday (nausea prevention) they must have still been in his system. He woke up at 12:30am and was bright-eyed until about 6:30am. It made for a long night for me (still recovering). Henry slept for several hours and were up and off to Frederick for a family dinner with Tara's mom and siblings and their families. All and all it made for a nice weekend, but for the lack of a little sleep.

Today Henry has done fine and we've prepared him for his trip tomorrow. He's become very comfortable with the idea of these procedures as long as he's asleep for them. So we warn him and he says, "OK, but they'll put medicine in my tubies and I won't feel it, right?" And we're good. It'll be an early morning tomorrow. We need to be there by 8:15a. Seeing as how he and I both need to catch up on sleep anyway, I suppose going to bed early would be a good idea anyway!
