This weekend, we are going to a wedding. Next weekend we're going to a first birthday party and (possibly) a concert. The following weekend we're celebrating Sophia's second birthday. The weekend after that is Ryan's baptism, the weekend after that there's a block party … You get the picture, we are busy.
I wasn't an overscheduled child or teenager. I didn't go to summer camp and only took part in one, yes, that is a big number 1, extracurricular activity at a time. Like many kids I knew, I had a lot of free time on my hands. When I grew up, I preferred a more leisurely lifestyle. I like to spend the weekend playing outside with the kids, because I don't have a ton of time to do it during the work week.
My husband is always on the go. If we spend a day lounging around the house, we better have a busy next day planned. He gets cabin fever easily, which brings me to the surprise comment made by Jon last night.
Me: Besides C's birthday party next weekend and the Devo concert (yes, my husband is a total dork who adores Devo, plus we got free tickets), I have an appointment to get my hair done (Yay!) at 12:30.
Jon: We're picking them up that night, right?
Jon: As much as I love the fact that you got us (free!) tickets to see Devo, I will not be upset if we can't go. I think that's too much for us to do in one day.
