My free weekend has come to an end which is always a sad thing. It's a sad thing even when it's a busy crazy weekend with the kids or not because it means back to work and the craziness of the week.
For the first time in a very long time I didn't have anything to do. I met Dave at his work Friday evening and we took his SUV up to met his mom and drop the kids off. We were both hungry and it was easier to skip getting my car and just go get dinner. We brought some very good Raising Canes home and pigged out. (Those of you that don't know Canes is a restaurant that makes the best chicken strips with a secret dipping sauce and you get crinkle cut fries, coleslaw, and the best piece of Texas toast ever.) Then Dave an I just sat and watched some TV. Around 9:30 I was exhausted so I headed off to bed and was asleep within 15 minutes of laying down. It was very unlike me but for whatever reason I need the sleep.
Saturday morning I got up and rode into work with Dave to get my car. I came home and cleaned the house which is a typical Saturday morning chore of mine. Then I took my shower, did my hair and makeup, and got dressed. I sat and flicked through the channels for a while but nothing was on. Around 12:30 I went up to Subway and got some lunch. I brought it home to eat and then I started in on my February bookclub book Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner. I spent the rest of the day reading this book because it was so good. I have always loved mysteries where the women is the detective so this was perfect for me. Dave had a sale towards the end of the day so he didn't get home until after 7. By that time I was starving so we ran and got something to eat and came back home. Our friends called shortly after that and they were wanting to get out of the house so they came over with their two month old son and we stayed up until after midnight talking and watching TV together.
Today I slept in longer than Dave did which never happens but was nice. Once I finally got up I showered and got ready. Then we both went grocery shopping, came home and unloaded the groceries. I spent the rest of the afternoon finishing my book.
I know it wasn't an exciting weekend but I think it was exactly the kind of weekend I needed. I had a nice low key weekend and I got to spend allot of quiet time with my hubbie.
