MMMM + The merry-go-round never stops


Good morning, folks. Welcome to Monday, though it is dreary one here. I guess I should not complain because it was supposed to rain all day Saturday and it did not, thankfully. We had a lot of outdoor activities that day.

A mountain of work was heaped onto me around 1 on Friday afternoon so while Ash took a half day to himself, I worked my ass off. But that was fairly rewarding. I left only a little early and got the kids. I don’t really remember anything we did that night. My stomach hurt and I was still stressed out that I may have been on my way to kid #4. UGH.

I woke early Saturday morning and took a pregnancy test; NEGATIVE! Yay! I could go on with my life. And I did; I made breakfast and started cleaning and getting us ready for the 11:30 football games. Both boys’ teams won, which is excellent. Ell got a co-pull on a flag so that’s cool. I feel like he could do bigger things if he wasn’t overshadowed by the boys who have been on this team the last two years. Maybe next year. We had lunch and took naps before going back out to Hayden’s birthday, where they had a water slide and all the kids had fun. The adults mostly watched the nail-biter of an FSU game. We managed to eke out a win but man, it was nerve-wracking. That night, Ash and I watched Homefront, that Jason Statham movie. I tend to fall asleep in that situation (later at night, movie on, blankets) but I managed to stay awake… until I drifted off ten minutes from the end! Ugh. Oh well. It was a decent movie.

Sunday, I swear to you I did not sit down (if you don’t count driving in the car) until after 12:30. I just started doing stuff right from the get-go: getting bagels, making spaghetti sauce, laundry, etc. When I finally plopped down on the couch to watch football, it was magical. What I figured out this weekend is that my back feels better when I am up and about. If I sit for a while, it gets stiff. So, that means being at work is annoying. I will have to stand frequently. As always, I have a ton to do today but I am in a much better mood this week, despite the back pain. So, yay!

Yay for freebie weeks! This first song I just learned about because a friend of mine posted on FB that he thought this was an instant pop classic. I’m not sure I agree but I do like it.

 

 

And this second song is an oldie but a goodie.

  2. Nice music, especially Ray LaMontagne. We were under cloudy skies & rain early this morning, but it looks like the sun finally came out to greet us. Sounds like your weekend was hectic. I hope this week runs a bit smoother for you. Keep the music playing & your feet moving to get you through each day. Have a tunetastic afternoon, dearie!
