I’m sitting here taking a few deep breaths, not really feeling at all ready for a new week to start!!!!
I had a nice weekend, but it tipped very far to the “kids/ activities” side of the scale.
Saturday started BRIGHT and early getting Asher up and off to 7:15 a.m. swim practice. By 8 a.m. I was in the van with Ethan, driving ~ 1 1/2 hours away to a soccer game. The game took up the morning, and then we met up with a cousin of mine who lives nearby for a visit. This was wonderful and I’m so happy we got to see each other. But as a result, we then also didn’t get home until after 5:30 pm.
It felt like a full day + all the driving + DARK OUT so early…..so I was kind of wiped out feeling Saturday night. Didn’t have much energy to do anything too significant. (i.e. frozen pizza for dinner + watched a re-run Hallmark movie on TV…).
Sunday had another pretty early start, since Ethan had another (his last of the season!) game at 9 a.m. (here in town, at least). But he had to be there by 8:15. It was a gorgeous morning, so I’m grateful for that. (A November 7th game in Wisconsin could be freezing cold/ snowing/windy….or 55 and sunny, like it was yesterday!)
I squeezed in a bunch of “Halloween take down” after the game before a shower and leaving for Asher’s swim meet by 1 p.m. Ivan stayed home to do fall yard clean up at our house.
The meet was a 35 minute drive away, and his session was supposed to run from about 2- 6 pm. Well, some delay in the morning session caused a delay in the P.M. session….so it turned into a very late start, lots of sitting around and waiting…and of course a late finish.
Asher just didn’t have the best day, either. Said he tweaked something in his leg the other day that was hurting, plus he just felt/looked tired in the water. His swims were decent but definitely not his best, so he was just kind of irritable and BLAH about the whole endeavor unfortunately. (Which then rubbed off on me and had me feeling ready to hit the road about 2 hours before the meet was actually over. 😉 hahaha.)
By the time we got out of there, we were starving and hit up a nearby McDonald’s. Add on the drive home and I think it was 8 pm by the time we got home.
NOT READY FOR THE WEEK!!! I did zero planning, zero prep, zero cooking….but look at that, Monday don’t care. 😉 It’s here anyway. Oh well. We’ll make it work….always do…. ha.
Thought of the Day:
If you don’t like something, change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. ❤
I am grateful for at least getting my Halloween stuff down!! That feels like one big chore off the list, at least.
