No Sunday Fun Day, Not This Week

There was no Sunday Fun Day post this weekend.

I didn’t even sign into WordPress, except on my phone.


No reason really.  I was just busy with life.  No time for a break to write or to even read much.

  • 20151130 - NoSundayFunDayMr. MPB turned another year older.  After my epic wife fail, I finally found him a birthday gift without a second to spare.
  • I spent an afternoon Christmas shopping with a friend.  I’m now done my Christmas shopping and wrapping!
  • My parents visited and among other frustrations/annoyances, they forgot Mr. MPB’s birthday (not a huge surprise as they forgot my birthday last year).
  • We went to the orchestra because we bought tickets well before we realized how insane this weekend would be.  And ate left over cold pizza in the car because we ran out of time and walked in 10 seconds before the performance started.
  • I hate folding laundry, this is a well known fact.  In fact, I hate it so much that I haven’t even been willing to fold copious amounts of baby stuff that I’ve washed over the last few months.  So a friend who stopped by for a visit helped me fold everything when she noticed the crib full of unfolded stuff.  And then she bought our future baby some cute things while we were shoppng.  I cried.  (Once she left of course).
  • 20151130 - NoSundayFunDay_1We worked on our bathroom reno (well Mr. MPB and a friend worked on the bathroom reno and I sort of supported).  Of course, like all projects it has turned into a tonne more work then we expected, and the fact that the floor is missing was not part of the plan, but rather the result of necessity.  But since we stopped using it almost 2 years ago due to a possible water leak, we needed to get on with it and so now we are in to the fix and so excited to be done.
  • Filling in adoption paperwork.  Seriously, will it ever end?
  • I worked for a few hours.  Because sometimes I just have to do what I have to do to meet deadlines.
  • Mr. MPB made his own delicious birthday breakfast for us to enjoy.  Although tradition is that he makes his own birthday meal (he loves to cook), I made his birthday dinner this year as he spent the day working on the reno.  I made ribs.  I completely forgot about them and somehow they turned out amazingly!  Mr. MPB told me to write down the recipe, but the recipe is essentially do everything possible wrong and enjoy.
  • My parents visited and among other frustrations/annoyances, they forgot Mr. MPB’s birthday (not a huge surprise as they forgot my birthday last year).
  • We are now sleeping in our basement since the bathroom reno has taken over our house.  I miss my bed.
  • We ate birthday cake.  It was not made by me, but made by an amazing bakery so it was delicious!  And we have left overs for tomorrow and probably Wednesday too.
  • And sex, that happened somewhere in there too (okay, that was probably way too much information).


And so, this weekend was a weird combination of enjoyable, exhausting, stressful and fun!  I think I need another weekend to recover!

  1. Wow! That’s quite a packed weekend you had there. Sounds super productive. If it makes you feel any better, my dad sometimes forgets my birthday, too. I also sometimes forget his, though, so we’re even!

  2. Love your post. My parents always forget our wedding anniversary, sometimes its just what it is. not sure if that makes you feel any better, but I am sure the last bullet point you mentioned made up for a lot of the disappointment.

    Between you and me, I can tell you, having a baby in the belly somehow makes the women extremely in the mood and the partner extremely out of mood. 🙂 TMI, I know, but of all the things I am looking forward to in my new post infertility life is the last bullet point.

    • If I’m going to give TMI, so can you! Hahaha! 🙂
      The big step forward for me this time they forgot is that I really didn’t care. And, truthfully I cut them a bit more slack since it was Mr. MPB’s birthday and not mine.

  3. Your friend who folded the baby clothes and bought you new ones is definitely a keeper. 🙂 What a very sweet and practical gesture! Glad you had such an action-packed weekend!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! Sorry about your family… I have nothing nice to say about that. 😉

    Once you have that baby, I bet you start to like folding his/her laundry. Folding laundry sucks…. But I love folding the kids stuff even now!

  5. Hahaha, so glad you managed to squeeze in some “adult” time. Take it from me…being told by a doctor that you CAN’T makes you want to more than ever. So enjoy the freedom to get jiggy with it! 🙂

  6. I’m glad you had a good weekend, even though it was crazy! And happy birthday to Mr! I can’t wait to see your reno when it’s done!! (ps~I STILL have not finished painting the top of the wall above the stairs…procrastination at its best! But we have the taller ladder, and hopefully I will finish it this week, and I will show you pics when it’s done!)
