Q got sworn in today! This week marks the beginning of the 2012 Colorado Legislative session.
He looks so handsome in his suit…meanwhile I’m a stay at home Mom barefoot and pregnant…I wouldn’t have it any other way! Well, SOON I won’t be pregnant, but the barefoot part doesn’t bother me at all! When Q and I first met, we both were in politics so although I go to events with him, most of the time I live vicariously through him. Session is an insane time for our family. Q is busy. SUPER busy and his work load triples. He hired additional staff which HELPS, but still… PLUS, anyone following the Republican party? Yah, Presidential ELECTIONS! My man is B.U.S.Y. He will go from the session straight into campaign mode until Election Day in November. That’s 11 months of fast and furious political action without a break!! What is our reward for all this madness? Spending Christmas on the beaches in Jamaica with Q’s father (who happens to be also involved in Politics).
Can I just tell you HOW EXCITED WE ARE THAT BABY GIRL HAS NOT COME YET???? This week has already been hectic. It’s busy. He goes very early and works late. And oh yah…
in the midst of this we are having a baby. An infant. In the house. And we ALL know that the first month is a doozy. And the second month is better. The third month is glory. The 4th month your baby has personality and then boom, session will be over. Who planned this? Oh yah, we “did.”
Q and I are planners. We plan EVERYTHING. We’ve been accused recently of not being “spontaneous” enough. Oh wait, we were accused of being “the least spontaneous couple we’ve ever met.” – the Neighbor. We have two kids. One car. And a man with a busy work schedule. And a Mom who LOVES to be with her family. Pardon ME if I don’t want to just HOST you and your family of 4 UNINVITED in the spirit of spontaneity.
Q and I are usually up for adventure, yet at the same time, our adventure usually happens on the weekend. We like to go to bed early AND wake up early. You, NEIGHBOR, need to realize that we DON’T have family around so if you call us to go DANCING at 6 p.m. on Friday night and want us ready by 7 AND have a babysitter come….we are going to need a little MORE planning. If my parents lived close by – like yours do – I WOULD call them and see if they would LOVE to come. But they DON’T. So we want to SAVE our DATES for MORE PLANNING.
Basically the relationship is toxic. Or was. Since the friendship was “ended” via her text msg.
Back to the basics. Session is a big time for Q and our family. And he is sworn in today and I am SO PROUD! And are we the only ones with seriously wacky neighbors????
