Saturday was great! We had some beautiful weather, and the temperature was perfect. We went to Elijah’s robotics competition and then came home to play outside for a few hours. Sunday morning we had church, went to eat lunch at Johnny’s, and then back to the church to wait for the Crewe of Cotton Mardi Gras parade to start. Sunday evening Gabe and I got to go to dinner and buy groceries without the kids. Overall, it was a great weekend, even if it did have a little hiccup in there.
Needless to say, the Valentine’s Day activities post is being postponed for tomorrow!!! For now I’ve got to tell you just how awesome today was!!!
Today I got a Mom Vacation! It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve had a day to run errands without the kids. I had to get that busted window replaced, so my Mom volunteered to come sit with the kids so that I could do that. It was pouring rain, so I had to drive super slow to keep the covering from blowing off of the window. Then I got to sit in the waiting room and wait all by myself for an hour and a half, where I was also able to have a nice fresh cup of coffee and drink it all before it got cold. I ran through drive thru for my lunch, which I got to eat while it was still hot, and I didn’t have to share my fries. I then dropped off an old modem so that we would stopped being charged for it, and stopped by the bank. Since I was finished early, I decided to stop at the AT&T store for a new phone. I managed all of that in just 4 hours! I feel so productive tonight, but I feel like I got a little pick me up too. I rarely get time to myself, and getting a new gadget for myself is nearly unheard of. I hope that maybe I can convince my Mom to make this a regular thing once a month.
