I don’t have a ton of time to write since this blog needs to be written in the amount of time that it takes to give Owen a bath. Owen is splashing away in the tub with the supervision of my hubby and Toby, so I have a few minutes to myself. Gotta make the most of them. I’ve been blogging for years and this blog certainly has morphed over time. Nowadays, it seems to be a place where I can update family and friends on our current happenings. The life of a stay-at-home mom is busy, but doesn’t always give me a enough material (or time) to blog daily. These weekly recaps seem to be a good way to hit the highlights of our life. While the title of this blog is Amy Scott’s Thoughts, it’s more like the Scott Family Happenings. I’m okay with that for now. I plan to stick with this blogging thing for a the long haul, so it will probably continue to morph. I have other thoughts and topics that I maul over sharing, but taking the time to get them written down just doesn’t happen these days. Sorry. I guess a lot of Amy Scott’s Thoughts will stay in my head for now.
Back to the weekly review, we had a fairly quiet weekend after our Annual Conference adventures. The Friday after we got home, May 1st, Jeremy & Owen went over to help his Dad (Papa) install a window in his living room. I headed over for dinner after the work party ended. Mostly the weekend was laundry, errands, resting and re-adapting to life at home. Monday kick started our week off with a doctor’s appointment for me and the littlest Scott. It was great to hear the baby’s heartbeat and we set the date we can find out the gender in June. I am so excited that the big reveal is less than a month away. Tuesday was MOPS and then in the evening we took off for Portland to get the screen on Jeremy’s phone fixed. It was fun to walk around the mall and have dinner at Panda Express. That is always a win in my book! Wednesday was my normal laundry and chore day around the house and then church in the evening. On Thursday, Jeremy was up early for a prayer breakfast then he came home to watch Owen for a little bit so I could get my hair cut. Thursday afternoon was beautiful, so we played outside for a bit and Owen requested a walk in the stroller. We haven’t used that in ages, but he wanted it! It’s fun to see his personality continue to shine through. He has no problem getting his point across. He is starting to use more and more words. He is changing quickly. His new thing is climbing on the furniture, specifically the dining room chairs and table. I feel like a whole new level of supervision is now needed in our home.
On Friday, I drove up north to have lunch with my forever friend, Maggie May. She and her husband just announced that they are expecting a boy, so there was much talk about their new little man. I’m so excited for her! Spending time with Maggie is always a special treat. We really do make the most of the few short hours we have together. Saturday, we drove over the mountains to celebrate my sister-in-law, Andrea’s, 30th birthday. It was a fun day spent out in the yard with the sun and the kiddy pool. Owen had a great time splashing around playing with his cousins. It’s always great to visit the East side family. With Andrea now in her 30’s, I’m the last of the Scott’s in their 20’s! Eek! Time flies!
Sunday was Mother’s Day… I wish I had a slightly better report on the day. Owen woke up cranky and tired from the big day before. He didn’t seem to pull out of his mood, so the day was full of many meltdowns. I was super tired from two days of not being able to nap. I was just worn out… We had a nice steak dinner at my parent’s house that evening. It was a good day, but not an awesome day. The highlights for me were taking a short nap and watching the season finale of my favorite TV show. Kinda pathetic, I know. Also because Owen was in a mood most of the day, I didn’t take a single picture. There was nothing really worth documenting. Oh well. I have plans of celebrate Mother’s Day with Jeremy and Owen over Memorial Day weekend, so I just kept reminding myself that more fun was on the way.
And that brings us today, Jeremy took the day off since he worked at a conference all day Friday. It’s been nice to just be home after three days of running all over the state of Washington. Plus the weather is all rainy and gray so I don’t feel a bit bad about not getting out and about. I did have an ice cream date with a student this afternoon. It was fun and nice to come home to my hubby making dinner. Overall, a good day! This week is hopping at well… Each day holds its own plans and commitments and hopefully a lot of a fun in the process. I’ll give the lowdown in a week or so!
