It's just another Manic Monday. Oh ooh oh. Is it just me or are the weekends flying by these days? Does anyone else feel like we're all trying to cram every last drop of summer fun into the weekends before the mad back-to-school dash begins? Everyone's trying to get through their summer bucket lists and take those last minute weekend trips that they've been meaning to do for months. Stores start displaying notebooks, pencils and glue and everyone loses their minds. Me included. I'm slightly freaking out about Mac starting 3-day nursery school in the fall. I know he'll be fine, but it just feels like he's so grown up these days. He talks like an adult most of the time and I'm constantly in awe of how big he is - last week he climbed up on the kitchen counter and started making me coffee like it was no big deal! Next week he'll be driving.
Weekends are precious around these parts. I love having my Wednesdays with the kids, but on weekends we get daddy home too. So, I'm disappointed when a weekend gets messed up, which is pretty much what happened this past weekend. I spent half of it lying in bed trying not to vomit all over the place (Sicky Saturday) and the other half running errands, cleaning the house and trying not to kill the children who only wanted to scream and make messes all day long (Sunday UnFunday). I feel better (some weird stomach bug, I guess), but I also feel like I got nothing accomplished, missed out on a fun birthday party, lost my temper more times than necessary and wasted an entire weekend that we could have spent doing fun stuff. And here it is Monday again. Womp womp. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't entirely awful. We went to the park, the kids had an epic hose fight in the driveway washing the cars, we did lots of snuggling, we have groceries for the next month and I watched the first movie I've seen in years while I was lying in bed Saturday night trying not to die. So, I guess there's that.
Cheer me up...who did something awesome this weekend?
Or commiserate with me...who's weekend sucked?
