No rest for the wicked

Sunday, June 21, 2015

This is the first weekend with no homework or soccer games, that I am in town and can really devote to chilling with the kids. Today I took our daughter to an outlet mall as a long-promised reward. We don't shop much, so by the end of our three hours there we were *bushed*. The kids chose dinner, and then our daughter decided to humor me by watching rom-coms. So we watched Mama Mia! and got up together to dance to each song. Silly and fun.

The son is out for a late night with his friends; they have driven out of the city to star gaze. He won't be back until the wee hours, so it looks like we are going to binge on netflix while waiting for him to get home.

This is what happens with the hub is out of town. The inmates run the asylum. We probably won't get to bed until 2 or 3 am.

But we did manage to get groceries today. The fridge is stuffed full of fresh veggies and fruit, with plenty extra for snacking. All set for the new week!

    Sounds fun! I had a houseful of kids when they were growing up, 3 of my own, 1 step daughter, and 1 grandchild, ages 1 through 18. I frequently felt "the inmates were running the asylum". Made me laugh, reading your blog. --Pam

    Sounds like a fun way to spend the weekend. A little down time is good for the soul. Have a great rest of the weekend and enjoy all your healthy meals and snacks next week. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    But it sounds like such a happy asylum! The inmates sound sane to me! Outlet mall shopping, star gazing, netflx watching, stocking the fridge--what a pleasant day!

    Hope you have a great rest of the weekend, too, though after staying up so late, you might have to spend the first few hours on Sunday catching up on your sleep.
