How was your weekend? Did you party like a rock star? Chillax the days away?
My weekends are never quite as chill as I plan them out to be in my mind. But that’s mostly because until now, I’ve pretty much refused to do that 15/20 minutes of housework a day that’s supposed to leave your weekends free. I think I’m going to try it – for real – this week and see if it works. Do you break your housework up or do you jump up on Saturday mornings and tackle it all?
Saturday morning we hung around and cleaned up the house. Lovegirl was not pleased with the amount of time and effort she had to put into cleaning up her rooms. Yeah, that’s right, rooms. In addition to her bedroom she’s taken over the guest room and between the two rooms – sister had a lot of work to do. I’m hoping that this 20 minutes of dedicated housekeeping nightly will help her out too. Anyway, then we ran errands – picked up a few more fall/winter items for her – including a pair of suede boots for that were unexpectedly on sale for $20! Thank you Lord :) We also picked up birthday presents for the next two weekends. I’m telling you – this kid has quite a social calendar!
Saturday night we moved our maxing and relaxing over to Pserendipity’s house. Where Tim and Smoochy got to talking. About our blogs. Now, Smoochy’s always known that I had a blog, but he’s never bothered to read it. Tim? Reads Pserendipity’s blog. For real. After much discussion about their aliases, they’ve decided they no longer want to be called “Tim” and “Smoochy.” Um, Tim, your name is Tim. Nevertheless, they’ve given themselves new blog identities. You ready? You’re not ready. Tim would like to be called….Thug Thizzle. And Smoochy? Well, he wants to be called…Big Thug Thizzle. So….please know that from here out, Smoochy shall be called BTT.
Tim Thug Thizzle also spent a good deal of time talking about how badly he and P whipped BTT and I last time we played spades. Except they totally lost. Every game. I think he really thought they won! Poor TT!!
Sunday was spent playing hooky from church (it was our church anniversary and…I really don’t like programs) and taking Lovegirl to a birthday party at a local park. Initially I totally was not feeling the birthday party, but I must say, it was really nice and I had the opportunity to get in a few laps around the park. So, all in all we had a great weekend!
I don’t think I’ve told y’all yet, but for the next year I will work diligently toward getting back into shape. I will go to the gym a minimum of 3x a week. I will make better food choices. I will start lifting weights again. I will tone up. I will turn forty looking fab. That is all :)
Lovegirl (who hasn’t requested a new name…yet) insisted that I get a picture of her in action yesterday. Here, in all her glory, she is!
Man, I love this kid!!
