Oh NO She Didn't!!!

Oh but I did! I actually took a day off from blogging yesterday. *GASP!* I figured it was a long weekend and I needed to spend a little more time with the family and less time on the computer on the 'Extra' day off. (Translation: I spent too much time taking naps and reading and being flat out lazy to make it over to the computer. Still quite amazing in of itself!) But it was such a lovely weekend, regardless of how busy it was!

Here are some highlights:


Took the wee one to the park with the neighbors. We had a great time. (Minus the moments where the kids would only admit to having to go to the bathroom AFTER we had just returned from the restrooms with another child...Oh No...we asked EACH child before leaving the first time, they just decided to LIE and hold it till we got back for entertainment, or at least that's my theory.) Once the kids and husband were home we went to Meijer for some awesome grocery shopping and to buy a bike for the middle son who was in need of an upgrade. (Killer Friday night hey! Grocery shopping!) Got home...threw the bottle of wine in the freezer to get it cold... cooked dinner then put the kids to bed and went to bed myself after reading for a small bit. EXCITING TIMES!!!


Woke up and let the kids ride their bikes since middle son had just gotten a new one. The two older children winched (yes I made that word up myself) and complained because it was too hard without the training wheels while the 4 year old hopped right on his and crashed and burned a bunch of times, but it didn't stop him! I think he'll be riding a 2 wheeler before the other two. So ANYWAYS... new bike had a bent rim... back to Meijer. Ran to the back, grabbed a new bike and walked past the wine section. (OH $H!T! Frozen Wine Alert! Ironic Story Actually...) Came home...blah blah blah...had some family over, quite enjoyable time. (Especially the part where we put in Harry Potter for the kids to watch and they took off to play and only the adults were watching it.) Then I went out to a Moms Night Out Yoga class. Loved body, not so still hurts! But I'd go back! Came home, more reading, sleep!


UP EARLY (UGH!!) Nephew had First Communion and Confirmation. Had to go into our hometown to attend, nothing better than an hour and a half road trip at 8AM on a Sunday morning! Well we got there early. (Oops...apparently I have a bad perception of time.....) So we stopped into Meijer. (Catching onto the trend yet?) Then mass, party party party, drive home, dinner, reading, bedtime. Oh but I got an awesome framed pic of a gnome from my dad as a late birthday gift. My dad ROCKS!!!


We wake up and realize that our flour supply is low. BACK to Meijer!!!! This time the kids say "Um, why are we here AGAIN?" I was thinking the exact same thing! Lunch, naptime, more reading... (such a nice break from writing, and it's the first time I've done it in the last 8 months!) then we decided it was time to do something fun with the kids. I suggest the Park, maybe a movie. My husband says, "No, those just don't sound fun. Let's go to Chuck E. Cheese!" (Because running around and chasing our children in a small restaurant where 500 other children are running around and screaming and not listening to thier parents DOES sound like fun...) Well it was actually a good time. The kids were great and minus the one little boy who kept trying to steal our tickets and tolkens (Um where were his parents????) it was a great time. Then back home, more reading and bedtime!


Doesn't that sound so exciting!!!! Well it was pretty relaxing actually. And what wasn't relaxing was entertaining. So I'm not complaining. I hope everyone had an equally as wonderful long Holiday weekend as us!!!

BIG NEWS TOMORROW!!! Make sure you tune in!

Secrets, secrets

Michael thought that female "dancer" was so profound. Now so do I! Tell me, tell me, tell me!
