Why is it that I am able to post less frequently in the summer when my schedule is theoretically less hectic than I am during the school year? I’m not sure the answer to that question, but I noticed I hadn’t posted anything since Thursday. I’m sure everyone has been waiting with bated breath to find out what was going on in Suburbia this weekend.
Friday night we went over to Best Friend’s house for a little dinner and game night. Except everyone was too tired to actually play any games, so it ended up being dinner and sitting around their living room until we all admitted it was time to go home. Our lives are exciting. The good news was that this was a mutually agreeable conclusion. Best Friend is still in her baby and toddler parenting years, so she had not gotten much sleep the night before between night feedings and scared kids arriving during a thunderstorm. Adventure Guy seemed to suddenly be coming down with a little virus that’s been making the rounds and wanted to get home to sleep as well. Fortunately, he seemed to recover during the day on Saturday, and it doesn’t look like we shared the virus wealth with our friends.
On Saturday, we slept in and then the kids went to see Ratatouille with the same friends we hung out with the night before, or actually the older kids and the dad. Best Friend stayed home with her baby, and her husband was willing to take along my kids in order to have some help corralling his own. I was just thankful to have some time to work on my scrapbooking and to not have to actually see this movie, though my kids agreed with the good reviews it’s received.
Saturday was also Adventure Guy and my 17th wedding anniversary. Several times during the day I thought about some nice things that I could post about that, but I never quite got around to it. I was too busy enjoying a nice dinner out and a trip to a grownup movie, Sicko. Suffice it to say that I am very happy that I was smart enough at age 22 to marry Adventure Guy and even happier that we have managed to grow together rather than apart over the last seventeen years. I know I’ve said it before, but he’s truly my best friend, and I couldn’t ask to have a better father for my children.
Today it rained, again. Just like it did yesterday and the day before and the 15 or so days before that. I am so tired of rain. We had a very relaxed day today. Went to church, ate lunch out, looked at some open houses (mainly just for the fun of it, though I’m always looking for the perfect house), and watched a couple of movies. I continued to work on my scrapbooking, and I’m officially up to July of last year. I’m feeling good about the progress I’m making on that front. I swear I will not ever get this far behind again! My goal is to finish at least all of last year by the end of July and then get started on catching up with Swim Chick’s school album and this year’s family album. The good news is that I actually find the process relaxing; I just got behind and then didn’t put aside time to get caught up until now.
That’s all of the excitement in Suburbia this weekend. I’ll have a short week at work as we are headed out of town on Tuesday to visit Adventure Guy’s dad for the 4th of July. More on those plans later.
