Actually, I was just complaining yesterday to Carl about this girl I know who has been Instagramming like every hour for the last two days about her two-day, kid-free super fabulous getaway with her husband. The first time she posted I actually though, oh, how nice for them! But that was before the “here we are getting a couple’s massage,” “#out for #dinner with my #handsome #husband,” and “LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH HIM” in the space of a single afternoon.
So please know that the missing week between this post and the last one mostly involved catching colds, falling behind with work, and using all my manipulative energy to get Iris to nap in such a time and place that I could also nap. It’s cool. We’re doing fine. And today we even had 20 golden minutes where Iris played contentedly while I read a book.
I’ll take it.
