I totally need a weekend to recover from my weekend. Damn, I’m tired. I seriously wanted to throw the alarm clock out the window this morning when it went off, but I was good. I refrained. Instead, I just hit the snooze button 5 hundred times and got up about 20 minutes late. Great way to start a Monday, right?
So I rushed around and got out the door only a few minutes later than normal, dropped off the kid, and then as soon as I arrived in the parking lot at work realized that I forgot my damn laptop. I briefly thought about making do without it today before I realized it is the last day of the month and I have to close the books and all of my accounting stuff is on the laptop. Damn.
I drove all the way back home, grabbed my laptop and a Coke Zero and rushed back to the office. I finally arrived at my original destination around 9:15. Once again, great way to start off a Monday morning. At least the boss-man laughed about it and wasn’t pissed.
But, I did have an awesome weekend. We had a great time at the lake. Everything was perfect except for the part where Zach refused to go to sleep until MIDNIGHT Friday night and the part where the electricity kept going out on Saturday and, you know, the HEAT.
We spent most of the day Saturday out on the boat which was a blast. Zach did really well on the boat, but he got angry every time we slowed down. The first time out he fell asleep. The second time out he just chilled out on my lap and was fairly content until he started getting bored. He wasn’t very fond of the life jacket though.
When we got back in town on Sunday, we unpacked, played with Zach for a while, then showered and headed over to my sister’s to pick up the dogs. When we got there my sis talked hubby into going to Granite City and drinking a couple beers with her so the rest of us munched on some appetizers while they had a couple drinks. Afterwards they tried to get us to stay and watch a movie but we declined and headed home. For the third night in a row, Zach didn’t get to sleep until after 10:00.
I actually didn’t take any pictures at all at the lake. I was too busy chasing after Zach and keeping him out of the lake, the fans, the fire, and all of the easily accessible breakable stuff in the lake house. Plus, I was too afraid that my camera would somehow manage to get thrown in the lake and I just wasn’t ready to let everybody see me cry.
I did, however, take a couple of shots of Zach and his cousin playing lastnight in their matching Blue’s Clues outfits. Seriously, these guys are just too cute!
