Perfect weekend

Drew came home Friday. He's been gone the past few weeks on his family medicine rotation. At his school they like you to return to your home town to do family medicine. Surprisingly the four weeks went by fast, it also helped that we were able to see each other every weekend. I had been looking forward to staying home this weekend, and was not disappointed. I think this is only the second weekend we've been home since March, and we really needed it. As much as I love seeing family and friends, the constant travel can be exhausting.
Saturday morning we woke up, had breakfast, and headed to the pool (our first time this summer). We relaxed, Drew studied for his family medicine exams (which will be the next three days) and I got caught up on my magazines. After a few hours of baking in the sun we had lunch and headed out for errands. I know this sounds silly, but it felt so good, to have nothing to do, and no where to be. We got our library cards, and walked downtown and grabbed some ice cream at Del's. After running our errands we came back and parked ourselves on the couch. I napped while Drew watched the Cubs game. This is something we used to do all the time, when we first started dating, but we are often too busy to do now. I know it is lazy but I seriously loved those Saturday when he would watch the game and I would take a nap with my head in his lap. We had a relaxing dinner and just hung out for the rest of the night. Today was similar but I did get a few things done (cleaned, grocery shopped and went to church) and ended the evening with nice stroll outside. We walked through a relatively new subdivision and "oohed" and "ahhed" at the beautiful homes (and talked about how someday we would have a home of our own).
This weekend was so simple, yet so wonderful. I can honestly say I feel refreshed and (as ready as I will ever be) to return to work tomorrow. It is also fabulous to have my husband home. Oh, how I missed him!

I think that when your husband works all the time (especially weekends too) you begin to really appreciate weekends off that you can spend together. We too love the occasional weekend at home. Time to just relax or get a few things done around the house.
