Friday after work I ran home gave the kitties an extra bowl of food and extra water and heading off home to San Antonio. I got out of Bryan close to 5:40 and by the time I hit Caldwell it was perfectly dark. The drive through Bastrop was scary, the road curved a lot and cause of the fires part of the road through the forest is closed. Bastrop to San Marcos was completely dark too and after sitting in traffic for 20 minutes to get on 35, I was so relieved to be on a lighted highway I made it to San Antonio about 25 minutes later- ooops. Got into San Antonio right around 8:45.
First stop Deirdre's house. I think 2 months is the longest I've gone without seeing her since I was 16 years old and started driving. Crazy to think about but seriously never go that long without seeing her. After Deirdre's I headed over to mama and mimi's and chatted for a minute. Mama practically dragged me out of my car. A little after 10 I headed over to Haley's house where I will be staying the majority of time I stay in San Antonio. Isaac was sleepy so I barely had time to kiss his head before they swept him off to bed. Chatted briefly with Hail and Greg and went to bed. They have a super comfy temperpedic guest bed and it was like sleeping on a foamy cloud.
Woke up the next morning at 7AM when Isaac woke up. My dreamy dreamy nephew sadly took a little while to warm up to me again. It woud have broken my heart if I wasn't so excited to be home- even if it was someone else's home. Mama came over around 9ish and the Swift's headed out around noon.
Haley left a binder full of instructions for Isaac. When to feed him, what to feed him, how to change his cloth diapers, how to put him to bed, his morning rituals and nap rituals. All in crazy detail. I have put Isaac to bed on several occasions, mama had only once or twice. Mama had taken care of him during the day time weekly for almost half a year and I've only watched him in the day time a handful of times. So we both had our strengths.
Later in the afternoon daddy came over and we took Isaac to the park. He played on the slide and played on the swing set, then we went home and napped. Saturday mama also picked up BBQ since it was also a thing I missed from SA. Late in the afternoon Dr. Liz came over! She finally got to meet Mr. Isaac and of course got to hand out for a little bit. Saturday night we got Isaac off his schedule a little bit and put him to bed too early, but he slept like a haus till 6AM close to 10 hours!
This morning we had breakfast tacos and played with Isaac in the house. He took a good nap even though it felt like he'd slept forever. Then we went and picked mimi up for lunch and went to La Hacienda so I could get decent Tex-Mex. After lunch daddy came over again before I had to head back to SA. In true daddy fashion he cleaned my car before I left- he used to do the same thing when I'd go back to Seguin in college. I ended up leaving around 3:30 and didn't hit too bad of rain till Bastrop. Made it back to my apartment by 6ish.
My visit was way too short, but got to see the most important people (minus my stepmom who's kids were also in town this weekend). I'll be back home- Hail's home- in 9 more days. But that drive SUCKS in the dark so I'm gonna have to see if I can leave earlier in the afternoon.
