In my little world "I am Queen"

Another weekend

It was one of those normal weekends where nothing was normal other then all the running around. From Friday night on I ran all weekend. Why does life have to be so crazy at one time? Does this happen to everyone or am I the only fool out there that is non-stop busy?

Friday night I spent the evening at a party for work then trolloped off to another watering hole and before I even realized what time it was I was hearing the infamous words being shouted out, "Last Call."

What? You have go to be kidding me - I wasn't suppose to be out this late and can't even remember the last time I heard those words. I jumped out of the booth and said my good byes to friends I hadn't seen in months and took off for home.

Thank goodness the hubby doesn't get to worked up about that sort of thing. Probably because it well, never happens. Except for the beach trip for volleyball but I have no responsibilities that weekend other then showing up for the tournament and playing well.

On Saturday I actually felt great. I of course didn't drink all that much. When driving and when it's a work thing you have to be responsible. You know they talk about those people on Monday.

We had 3 parties on Saturday to attend. The first, a close charity picnic for elderly residents; the other two - friends. We actually hit all 3 and one twice. I was drained and only felt the compulsion to have two beers all day. Have you ever noticed how annoying drunk people are when you're sobber? That's a story for another day.

I have come to realize that after one night of drinking all is fine; two nights just not the same. Maybe it's because I'm getting "O DEAR NOT THAT WORD" older, not sure.

Then yesterday we took the wonderful LM to the local amusement park for the day. What a great day - it was somewhat chilly and overcast and the park - somewhat empty.

We did hit the water park area and LM was in his glory - he is getting so brave when it comes to being in the water and venturing out by himself in the kiddie pool area. Makes me nervous but I gotta let him venture once in a while but only at an arms length away.

I think it's time to call the local Y for some swim lessons. We were trying to get him out of the pool and the response "One more swim, no wait, two more." As he held up his adorable two fingers to show us what he meant.

Then today back to the grind. Same old, same old.

I will be happy as this week calls for nothing other then dinner at my MIL's tonight and SIL's tomorrow night. YIPPEE...I don't have to think of meals until Wednesday. Ah, the little things that delight mommy...O and the cleaning lady comes today - double bonus!!!

I don't know about you, but I seem to need more sleep as I get older. I get testier if I am running around too much and I'm not taking good care of myself.

Racing around all weekend just doesn't work for me. We usually try and keep Sunday's free. We may do some light yard chores and hang out on the patio. If Harley has homework over the weekend, it's left for then. That is a usual Sunday in our home.

I think since I work full time I try to cram as much into one weekend that I can. I shouldn't complain just enjoy that I have the opportunty to do so much.
