When I was younger I didn’t always like Sunday, especially when it was during the school year. It signaled the end of a weekend and meant cramming homework in before school the next day. I enjoyed church, and Sunday dinners with the family but I hated the knowledge that the next day was Monday.
Today I realized that Sunday has become my favorite day of the week. For those of you that don’t know, I rarely get to spend time with Jeremy. He works 2 jobs and sometimes referees water polo or works for his brother on top of all that. Sunday is the only day he doesn’t have any work. I get to spend time with him from sun up, to sun down. I treasure Sunday and love the moments we get to spend together as a family.
On a different topic. We have decided to venture on our Californian Vacation without JD. My cousin Nicola has been amazing and offered to watch JD for the week we are gone. She offered before we even thought about leaving him and it’s taken me a while to decide if I really wanted to or not. A week with no diapers or bottles to make was just too tempting. This will be our first vacation ever with just the two of us and no family along. Granted a few nights we are staying with family but I’m so excited to spend time with my Aunt, Uncle and Cousins while we are out there. It was fun that I got to see them all twice last year and I’m glad Jeremy will get a chance to know them better.
Leaving JD here and driving out to California and back without him has made me worry about what would happen to him if we were to pass away. After talking to some family and praying a lot we have decided what our last wishes would be and I’m going to look into making a Will before we go. I never thought it would be such a hard process to decide what we would like to see happen with him. There is so much to consider, like making sure he still has strong relationships with both sides of his family, financial stability, and making sure he’s raised complimentary to the way we would have raised him. If anyone has any “will making” advice please do pass it along. It’s not a subject that’s pleasant to think about, but heaven forbid anything happen to us and things are left up in the air.
