Oh my gosh, where do I even start?
Last weekend was a blur. It was fun and it zoomed on by.
Friday was incredible, because somehow, both children went out for the evening and we had surprise date night. I say WOW.
Saturday, people got up at dawn and ran a 5k.
I did not run a 5k. I slept.
When the people returned, they gathered on the bed as they do, but after they showered.
Clara did not run, but she did enjoy rolling around on the shoes. She did not shower. She was pink for days.
Sunday there was a lot of shopping. For the first time in the history of Sassy, we had a good mother-daughter shopping experience. Five stars, Highly Recommend.
Monday was alright. You know, for a Monday. I worked over a bit and went to the store and The Mister picked up pizza and we went to bed early because we are smart and also, the itty bitty melatonin that you eat like baby aspirin is my friend. Heart, heart, melatonin. Why doesn’t spellcheck know melatonin? Spellcheck is a good sleeper, eh?
Sometimes your anniversary is on a stupid Tuesday or whatever, so you don’t work late. You rush home and try to pretend you don’t even have babies, but you do, so you pick them up from the thing and then you abandon them quickly and scurry out to a nice long meal at Marco’s, which was frickin hoppin and we didn’t even know Tuesday night has a special that brings half the city in. Good mercy. I was a woman in love, and in cute shoes. I was
margarita strong delightfully amusing so who cares what the special was, or that it was even a stupid Tuesday for that matter?
Yes, yes, happy anniversary to us. Ooey gooey love shit later.
Wednesday was rough. It was a rough day. The Mister and I had been awake off and on all night and it was not sexy. It was toss and turn and huff and puff and a kid had to be at school early, so I was frenzied and tired all day. Sassy made tacos. I got the lil mini tortillas advertised as “street taco” type and those were a big hit! Also, Jarritos. Jarritos make taco night better. Plus, tacos are powerful mood elevators. Tacos have always been there for me.
OH MY GOODNESS, though, THE GOSSIP WAS FANTASTIC ON WEDNESDAY. I am still all LOLZ. Ooh, come sit on the porch, I’ll tell you all about it.
Thursday was busy.
Office Manager ordered a five-pound bag of gummy bears — Albanese, made right here in Indiana. They are the best gummy bears ever. You should eat them right after breakfast and when you make coffee and then right after lunch and when the 3:00 sleepies hit you and you have really got to lay off the gummy bears, okay?
Do you know what my hibiscus are like this time of year?
When we moved into our house, True was still upset I’d moved away and she was all, “We have nature here!” To which I made a scowly face and sent her a photo of the view from my bedroom. Five years later, it’s even more amazing.
It was a beautiful day here.
My dog is also beautiful.
I love her sweet pupperface.
So today? Well I have comp time from workin over, so I’m leavin early. But wait! There’s more! The Mister is driving me to work, bringing Mentor and me breakfast, washing my car, and picking me up from the office so we may commence date night immediately!
And lemme tell you somethin else.
I ain’t got a damn thing to do this weekend. No kid things, no social commitments, no big household project, no agenda. Mmhm, just chillin.
Happy Friday Everyone!
