“Now I must confess/I could use a rest…” – Jimmy Buffett
Weekends aren’t as relaxing as you’d think. We’re seemingly always busy these days. Friday night Elliot had a game and we got ice cream afterwards. The baby didn’t get in bed until after 8 and the boys, not until after 9. Surprisingly, they weren’t up all that early on Saturday. Baby Girl’s been sleeping better too. Anyway, we didn’t do an awful lot Saturday morning, then Ash went to a card tournament (which he actually won). I took the kids out to run some errands and that wasn’t bad: we got what we needed at Target, I got Ell 2 pair of shoes, jeans, and a shirt at the kids’ consignment place for only 24 bucks total, then I let them eat Chik-Fil-A. I also allowed them to skip nap, which was probably a bad idea. BUT, we made it ok. I threw together dinner and then let them start watching the third Star Wars. Around 7, I put Baby Girl to bed and when I came out to the living room, they’d both fallen asleep on the couch. I let them lay there a while, with the intention of waking them for bath then putting them in bed but I could not rouse them. So, I picked ’em up and put them in bed. They didn’t wake up until after 7 the next day!
We walked in the woods Sunday morning, then went to the store. Isaac had to take a nap – he was super whiny – but Ell helped us move more of our now defunct deck wood to the street. I mowed the backyard then settled in for a calm afternoon (and beer.) BUT, when I went to wash bottles, I realized that none of baby girl’s daycare stuff even came home. UGH. Had to run back out to the store to get new bottles. BUT, I found the perfect pair of sunglasses to complete Elliot’s outfit for today’s Relay for Life 80s theme at school:
I also peg-rolled his jeans so it’s about as 80s as we’re gonna get. I couldn’t find any neon stuff.
Anyway, it’s a freebie week so here’s my lame contribution: a song I can’t seem to stop listening to.
