It took me most of yesterday to rebound from our weekend activities. Because I am old. And social events that require staying up past my bedtime always manage to remind me of this indisputable fact: My love for partying may have been overcome by my love for sleep.
So Friday night, Mike and I made our annual trek to Red Rocks to see the Avett Brothers. It was pouring rain, the traffic was insane, and later the car battery died, resulting in a two-hour wait for a tow truck. And there might have been some yelling between spouses, too. But hey, it's the Avett Brothers at Red Rocks...things could have been worse!
(Fast forward to Monday, when the service center called me to say that it's not just the battery...it's also some other electrical part that costs $3200. Ok, things may have just gotten worse.)
We spent the rest of the weekend in Winter Park with our friends Dave & Danika, who were visiting from Houston with their brand new twin girls, Peyton and Charlotte. We grilled dinner on the deck, played several rounds of Trivial Pursuit and squeezed in lots of baby snuggling. There's nothing like cuddling with a newborn and inhaling that delicious baby smell to make your heart a little lighter. And babies don't judge if you need an afternoon nap to get through the day.
Sunday we spent most of the day working on projects at the cabin and then headed back home to take-out pizza and early bedtimes. Because it's always easier to face life's stresses when you're well rested. Which is why Monday required two naps.
Luckily today is Tuesday, I am finally caught up on sleep and assignments, and I'm ready for whatever the day has to throw at me. But before I sign off, I thought I'd share an older page of mine that was featured in the February 2014 issue of Scrapbook Trends. It doesn't have anything to do with naps, but it does highlight my boy and a favorite lyric from the Avett Brothers. See how all this ties together??
S U P P L I E S :
Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday! And remember, if all else fails, there's always naps.
