One of those weekends

You know how you have those weekends where you don't have much to do.

I love those weekends.

For us they rarely come, for so many times weekends are spent at birthday parties or get togethers or errand overload. And when you have a toddler who, thank be to God, still takes a nap in the middle of the day, your weekends are planned around nap time. The idea is to get everything that you need to do in the allotted times of 9-1 and then, 4-8.

So, if you are having a party from 1-4, Sorry, we can't make it. The kid is sleeping and those are precious hours of me/us time.

Now, I LOVE weekends. My husband is home. I get to sleep in for atleast an hour more because my husband is home. He is such a good guy that he gets up with beby and I sleep. It's a great arrangement.

And then we go and do all that we need to do. So many times we spend the days running from Wal-mart to Home depot, Marshalls to Target.

But, as I have said before, we are homebodies. We like to be home. So the few weekends where we get to do nothing but watch TV all day is pure heaven.

Some of the best weekends are when we flip the channel to MTV cribs, Travel Channels Best beaches, and Giada's best of Italy. Yeah we may end up green with envy and gluttonous, but all in all, a great weekend.

We thought this weekend would be that way.
That was the plan.

Not so much.

We had a few things on the to do list.

Get stuff ready for garage sale in a few weeks.
Clean garage.
Put bug stuff on lawn.
Put clothes away.

(notice most of these chores are his).

So we spent the morning doing such things. I helped. I put ant killer stuff on the ant piles. I distracted little guy with the water hose.

But, by the afternoon my brother in law called and they were heading to this new outlet mall that's not too far and instead of spending the afternoon watching the food network or Man vs. wild, we went shopping.

We were out from 4 to almost 10.

Exhausting. But so much fun.

Crazy kid slept like a champ.

Then we went to church today and were out all day.

Next weekend we have a graduation and graduation party.

I think we are free the weekend after...bring on comedy central and flip this house!
