I had a lovely weekend. I took Friday off to attend a ten minute program at Lovegirl’s summer camp. They pledged allegiance to various things, counted in Swahili, displayed their knowledge of sign language, sang a few songs and recited the books of the Bible. It was a nice program. However. I think if you’re going to ask parents to take off (not nearly enough parents were in attendance BTW), at least make the program a bit more…robust. I wasn’t expecting an episode of Glee, but still…
After the program, I headed to the day spa to cash in my Mother’s Day gift. Y’all. I was kind of disappointed. The manicure was definitely the best treatment I received that day. The girl who did my pedicure chopped off waaay too much toenail and the massage therapist? Well, maybe tall people make her nervous. I’ve had better massages from Lovegirl. I feel like a massage is successful if the masseuse has to wake me up and say “Ms. Nerd Girl, you sleep as long as you like, our session is over, no hurry.” When I’m making out my grocery list in my mind and thinking “is my time up?” I consider that an unsuccessful massage. I don’t mean to complain – it was a really sweet thought, I think I’ll just stick to doing my own nails and keep looking for a great local masseuse.
We spent Friday evening at swim lessons and then had a nice, leisurely meal with Pserendipity and Aidan.
Saturday we jumped up and headed to the splash park. We met two other families there and when I tell you those kids had a ball, please believe me. We were amazed that they were able to keep themselves thoroughly entertained for almost four hours. Best $5 I’ve spent in a long time. By the time we left everyone was three shades darker, tired and hungry. We ended up eating at G.olden C.orral – hadn’t been there in years! While not my first choice, the food was pretty good and everyone seemed satisfied. I always appreciate a serve yourself soft-ice cream machine! The other groups went shopping to take advantage of tax-free weekend. We came home and went to sleep!
Sunday morning I woke up with a sore throat and was feeling kinda crappy. So I doped up on day time meds and slept the day away. I woke up and washed, deep conditioned and styled Lovegirl’s hair. We laid around the rest of the day.
And that, was how I spent the 72 hours I had this weekend. What’d you do with your time off?
Today’s weight: 171.8. What the hay? I’ve gained 4 ounces. Definitely need to do a better job watching what I eat.
