This weekend ended up being extremely unproductive for me. I had all kinds of grand ideas for cleaning and organizing my house this weekend. I had even planned on taking down and washing curtains, dusting blinds and all sorts of things that I never actually do. As with anything I actually plan, none of that really happened. In fact, I didn’t get to any of my cleaning until about 9:30 Sunday night.
So, what did I do with my weekend instead? Actually I’m not sure. It seemed like the absolute shortest weekend ever. It started out Saturday morning with an emergency shoe shopping trip for the boy. He had been complaining about his shoes for a couple of weeks so I finally measured his feet and discovered that his shoes were entirely too small. He was wearing size 8 and actually needed a 9 1/2. Oops. No wonder he was complaining! So, we headed out for a quick shopping trip that ended up taking entirely longer than I had planned.
By the time we got home it was well past nap time. I got Zach down for his nap and then sat down to check my e-mail. Next thing I knew, two hours had passed and I was sitting up sleeping on the couch with my hand still on my laptop. Apparently I was a little more tired than I thought. We finished the night off with dinner out at one of our favorite restaurants and a visit to a friend’s house.
Sunday after church we ended up hanging out at my sister’s house. We were just about to head home when my brother and sister-in-law stopped by with my new niece so we had to stick around and visit with them for a while. By the time we finally got home it was after 6:00. I fixed Zach a quick dinner, then we sat down to snuggle for a bit before he had to get to bed.
By the time Zach was settled and in bed I was nearly ready for bed myself. I put in a load of laundry, picked up the living room, vacuumed the floor, folded one load of laundry, and headed to bed. I really can’t believe just how fast the time went.
Now here it is Monday night and I can’t believe how fast another day has gone by. There’s never enough time in the day to do all that I want to do. Well, not if I want to sleep anyway.
