When I walked out of work on Friday around 11:45, I was in that “peace out, see ya never” mindset. I was just sort of DONE with this place. But sometimes it’s like that. You just need a damned break.
Ash and I decided to check out the fancy new movie theater. The food was pretty tasty, though the pizza is clearly of the frozen variety. My quesadilla didn’t taste frozen and heck, they have a full bar with lots of good beers too. So this is promising as an alternative to the AMC, that is kind of far and expensive.
We had a bit of time after so we picked up Elliot’s middle school schedule (!) and then got them all from school/camp. Last day all around! Dakota will never go back to that preschool and the boys are done with camp for a year. In fact, they both had tears in their eyes when they got in the car because 2 of their favorite coaches aren’t coming back next summer. After we took everyone out for hibachi for Dakota’s birthday and dropped Ell off at a friend’s house, our night was pretty low-key because Ash has the same sickness I had last week; sigh.
In fact, Saturday is kind of a blur. I know I got up and ran then ran the robot in the pool. I picked up all slack because he just didn’t feel well at all. I took Dakota to a friend’s birthday party in the afternoon then finally got some time to relax. Sunday was more of the same of that: cleaning, working in the house, etc. Ash felt slightly better but not much. I mowed the lawn then took Dakota up to the new school for a special Kindergarten splash party thing. Soon after, Isaac had a friend come over for a while. So all in all, a busy and productive weekend but I am thankful to be in the office today. Originally supposed to have all 3 kids but since Ash stayed home, so did they. (He was actually supposed to go out of town but obvs did not. Not complaining!)
OK, it’s freebie week and in honor of my recent foray into Guitar Hero: Metallica (I’m not great at this game but it’s fun to pretend to play guitar).
