A roller coaster of emotions- Weekend In Review

I'm writing this at 5:30, Monday morning, after four hours of sleep, so I hope it makes sense. I apologize in advance for any grammatical errors.

This weekend is one I will never forget. My whole world was flipped upside down yesterday. Let's start at Friday, though, to keep things in order.

Friday night, London and I enjoyed a night in together. I wanted to get a quick run in so, naturally, he joined me on his treadmill. He lasted about five minutes before watching Bubble Guppies and I ran a quick 3 miles.

Saturday, we woke up about 7:30 and had a big breakfast. We spent most of the day hanging out at home doing chores, and playing, before deciding to walk to the park. It was a beautiful day!

I decided to go for a quick run while Jarod and London headed to a nearby pond to explore. 

Jarod helped with this photo and then I caught him taking a selfie! Ha Ha!

The night ended with a much-needed bath and quiet time. This picture was taking approximately two minutes after I got into the tub and approximately two minutes before London decided he wanted to have a bath with mommy! So much for quiet time Hahahaha!! 

Sunday we were up early cleaning the house for a second showing. We put on a movie for London while we cleaned and organized. 

We headed out around 2:30 and looked at a house for Jarod. We dropped him off, back home, before meeting a friend for a park date and supper. Not long after we got there, though, we found out an offer was in on our home!!! We cancelled our plans and London and I headed home. I cried the whole drive. 

There was some negotiating back and forth but, by 9:30pm, the papers were signed. We got what we wanted, financially, but they wanted a super quick possession of April 1st!! 

After putting London to bed, Jarod grabbed us a shot and we drank. It was necessary.

We then stayed up until 1 talking (mostly crying) about how our little boy's life was about to be rocked, if we were making the right decision and where the heck we were going to live. It was one of the toughest, most emotional, nights of our lives. 

Not only are we faced with finding new houses (we can each afford) but we also both have to deal with only seeing London fifty-percent of the time. Don't get us wrong, Jarod and I are not right for each other but it doesn't make it any easier. We spent a lot of time wondering how this was going to affect our little boy and what we could do to make it easier on him!

The one thing we do know is that Jarod and I will continue to kick-ass at this co-parenting thing! We plan to continue to do stuff as a family, whenever we can, and always put London's needs first.

I guess it's time to start house-hunting and packing! Understandably, things could be a little quiet here over the next few weeks but who knows!

I hope you have a great Monday!!

  1. What a difficult time. It sounds like you and Jarod are both extremely mature and London is lucky to have 2 parents who are equally committed to the same family values and ideals. Good luck with house hunting. I hope you find a place that feels like "home" for you and London!
