Yikes, what a weekend. We woke up on Friday morning, and of course Mary was sick. She was pretty stuffed up and coughing quite a bit, but other than that she seemed to be in good spirits. We bundled everything into the car and headed off to Saskatchewan, and surprisingly, the trip went very well in spite of the sniffles and coughing in the back seat.
The weekend was busy, looking at houses, talking to real estate agents, looking for a job for Ian. There is news on that front, but I'm not going to get into it just yet....things are still pretty tentative at this point. Needless to say, we made some BIG decisions this weekend that are going to change our lives quite a bit.
Mary was pretty crabby at times over the weekend, I think that while she loves being spoiled by her Grandma, she still gets tired of it and she misses her own bedroom. She was awfully happy tonight when we got home, and far more affectionate to Ian and I than she had been all weekend. It was nice to get hugs and kisses from her again.
Last night Mary was having a hard time sleeping, so I went in to cuddle with her and help her settle down. She snuggled up to me, and every time I sang her a lullaby, she would sing along....no words, but she was definitely singing. Then, every time it looked like I was trying to get up to leave, she would shove me back onto the bed and say "Sleep!" Some days she is just so adorable it hurts.
So, I will keep you all posted as things develop in our lives. It's pretty exciting, and plenty scary.
