This weekend was not much of a weekend. Husband was at a conference the entire day on Saturday. He left at 8:30 am and came back at 7:45 pm. Not too different from a normal work day, but simply lame for a Saturday.
I took the kiddos to a friend's birthday party at a waterpark Saturday morning. We had a blast, but it is far from relaxing watching a 1 1/2 year old try keep his face out of the water. Luckily, I had nice friends there to help me out a bit. They all have kids of their own, and we had a wonderful time playing.
When it was time to go, we helped birthday girl's mom load up the car and then headed home. We had a quick lunch, washed the pool water off, and put Mr. T in bed. I tried very hard to convince Miss M to have a nap because I was beat. Literally about to fall asleep standing up. She politely declined. Thankfully, Mr. T had a three hour nap! Once he woke up, we had a snack and headed to the grocery store.
Going to the grocery store with two kids at the end of a long day is one of my least favorite activities. Miss M complained the whole way about how tired she was and that Mr. T was being too noisy so she couldn't sleep. Luckily, once we were in the store, both kids were happy. It still took forever, but they were happy. Sucess.
Headed home to put things away, make a quick dinner, and put the kids in bed asap. Husband came home just in time to play with the kids and put them in bed. Sweet relief.
On Sunday, we had dinner with a family in our neighborhood. A few weeks ago, we found out the husband served a mission in Taiwan just like Husband. We made plans to get together to cook some delicious Taiwanese food. The food was amazing and the company was delightful.
Now it's back to the grind. Crazy, busy week up ahead. Husband is leaving on Thursday for a quick business trip, and there is much to get done before.
Wishing you a wonderfully productive start to your week!
