On the Bright Side...

There are some weeks where it's best not to relive some events that happened...and this is one of them!  What a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad week that I had at work.  It ended with me working from 1:30-3:30am on Friday morning...and it didn't get any better during the day on Friday.  It's a darn good thing that happened on Friday and I've had a few days to recover!


But, we've had a pretty good weekend so far!  I had a chance to do a few fun projects that I've had brewing for a while...it was so nice to take time to do something that makes me happy.  I forgot how much I enjoy being creative and crafty.  On Saturday, there was a trip to the park, a friend's 30th birthday party, and then a visit with the neighbors while the guys were watching the UFC fight.  I was exhausted by the time I got home and promptly fell asleep by 10pm.  Such a night owl! :)

Today, Scott and G are going to visit Great-Grandma while Ava and I head to the Mall of America to check out the Barbie and the Dreamhouse "exhibit".  We're meeting our friends Lynda and Isabel, so it should be a fun time!

The rest of my free time is going to be spent getting things in order before I leave for Florida on Wednesday morning.  Emilie and I are heading to Daytona Beach for a few days, and then to Orlando for a day.  I fly back home on Sunday, but she'll stay in FL until the following Wednesday.  I would have liked to have stay that long, but it just wasn't feasible with daycare/school, etc.  Plus, I know I'll miss my family!  BUT, when I get home, assuming that everything at work is going well enough, I am taking that Monday and Tuesday off, and will be at home, all by myself, to get more house stuff done.  Yippeee!  My spirits have been so lifted since we organized the laundry room...I just feel a million times better when things are put away and look neat! 

We've got plans to lay down sod sometime this month, and as a nice surprise, Charter came and buried the cable in our yard yesterday.  I'm searching for a cute table/chair set for our front porch so we can enjoy some time outside in the morning sun.  We're all ready for summer to come!

Ava had a decent week at school...they had a field trip to a nature center, and she managed to get 3 greens, 1 yellow, and 1 red (grrr) day.  G was supposed to have his 6 month appointment, but Scott rescheduled it for a few weeks from now - it's late enough in the evening that I might be able to meet them.  Little G also tried green beans for the first time this week...he liked them better than the rice cereal, but I think he was still a bit disturbed by the taste and texture.  (Although, he's smiley, as usual, in the pics below.)



Oh!  We also had a very nice day with my parents before they left last Monday...it was rainy and stormy, so it was a great time to stay inside and visit with them.  I'm already looking forward to the next time we see them!


Time to get moving...with so much to do, these weekend days start early!
