Fast Weekend

I can’t believe how fast the weekend flew by. We were so busy!

Friday I picked up the kiddo from school and then we hung out. Went to Blockbuster and rented movies and a game and then got pizza from Little Ceasars. I let the kiddo stay up a little late and play his Wii game.

Saturday, I made pancakes from scratch for breakfast and then it was soccer time (I need a shirt that says Soccer Mom). The boys played really hard and really well – and won! Then it was back home for a late lunch and some resting. More Wii. That afternoon, we headed to the Fall Festival at school. Kiddo spent his 25 tickets fairly quickly. He did manage to win some tickets to redeem. He got: a spikey ball with squishy stuff in it, a flying saucer with goop in it (I sense a theme…), and a whoopee cushion (I think that’s his favorite). He did the whoopee cushion all the way home from the school and cracked up each time.

Boys.

We had Sonic for dinner. Yes, I was a lazy Mom this weekend on the cooking front. Mostly because I was out of everything and didn’t have time to get to the store.

That evening, the kiddo and I carved a pumpkin together. It came out smashingly well, if I do say so myself. (See post: What I did on Saturday night…)

Sunday, I got up early, cooked cinnamon rolls and put a pot roast in the crock pot for all day cooking (that’s the BEST). Then we headed to church. It ran a little longer than usual. Got home at 1 and had another late lunch and then headed back to the soccer field for his 3 pm game. Got home closer to 5. He played on the computer and I caught up with the DVR while the washer and dryer was going.

By Sunday night, I STILL needed to get to the store and I STILL hadn’t made it. I guess that means I’ll be shopping tonight. Oof.

This afternoon, kiddo has an eye appointment. Tomorrow I have an appointment in the afternoon. Wednesday morning I’m volunteering at the book fair at school. And Friday I’m headed out of town for the weekend. I am SO looking forward to that.

This is going to be a super hectic week. I will need the downtime for sure this weekend. Plus I’m preparing for NaNo. Lots of stuff to read and critique between now and then not to mention the research I need to get done.

And that’s it for me. I’m off to work and school. Happy Monday!
