The weather did not cooperate, so we could not go to the beach. We have had the most un-California weather this June...cold, cloudy, windy. And unlike the postcards, our beaches are not really warm; if it's cold at our house near the Bay, it is colder, foggier and windier at the coast (about and hour from us.) So in order for Scarlett to be comfortable, we will wait until there is some sun.
We debated on how to spend the weekend, but ultimately decided to do some deep Spring Cleaning. Our house gets to be a disaster in a very short time lately, with medicine syringes, baby bottles, diaper pails, laundry and baby gear everywhere. I feel like we have way too much, but then, when I need something, I am very glad I have it! We set aside some books and DVDs to donate to the hospital library, sorted through all the bills, and finally tackled our "laundry mountain" that was getting out of control. As much fun as the beach would have been, we were happy to take time to sort and clean out things that have been ignored for months.
The saddest thing was packing up Scarlett's bassinet, which she slept in for the last 8 months. She is officially a crib sleeper. I am sad that I might never see it again, that it will never hold our tiny baby again, and there may never be another. I'm not too sentimental about most things, but as nice as it is to see her grow and mature, it is a little heartbreaking, too.
It is not sad to get that corner of our room back, though!
We have more cleaning to do today, but first we are headed to the Farmer's Market. Have a great day!
