Well it's Sunday and the weekend is coming to an end. Some weekends it's so busy I can't wait for the week that follows to get a little rest.My weekend started out with a scratchy throat and a stuffy nose. Not how I wanted to wake up on Friday knowing that my weekend was going to be busy busy.
Friday morning I went to work, regardless of how horrible I felt first off. As my day progressed my step mother (K) and my little bro (N) were on there way to my house...and I was running down the list of last minute things I needed to do before my Fab Female Fondue night. Thank goodness I took a little longer lunch and ran home to throw those random items in my closet floor...and put my bucket of margarita in the freezer. Once my work day ended I rushed to the daycare to get the tater tot, to the bank to gather small bills for my garage sale change (unsuccessfully- thanks non listening teller) and back home to get more tasks done. Neely had no idea that her uncle N (who is the same age as her) was soon to arrive, so it was a big surprise when they showed up. A few minutes later my awesome friend Allie arrived with a truck full of her garage sale items, and the secret ingredients to her fondue. The kids played and us girls headed into the house for a little sangria and some baking, cooking, slicing and dicing.
We ended up with a pretty awesome spread if I do say so myself. Lucky for my readers, I did not nor do I ever take pics, However K, and Allie do take pics, so maybe I can share those later. The food was great, and a few other friends showed up. Sadly lots of wine was consumed, and our attempt to play a game failed. Saturday morning rolled around, and I rolled out of bed. We pulled all our goodies out of the garage and into the driveway...signs were placed by my amazing husband...and we were off to selling. It didn't seem like we had that great of a turn out, but all in all we made a decent amount of sales. *Parents please do not send your annoying kids to the neighbors garage sale with money to hang out and get on my nerves all day long please* Neely and N played, and we made some dollars. We wrapped it up around one, and then naps followed. I had to promise the little bro a water gun, and Neely a potty training puppy barbie to make it happen but with my allergy attack and sore from standing legs, I'd had payed them each in cash to get my hour of silence. Naps down, and then it was off to Ikea with a friend, K and the kids. I love Ikea, fewer places in the world are as awesome as Ikea is. They have an expanding collection of fabrics, and although pricey, I always walk out with some, and kitchen gadgets, and spend extra time drooling over the cool kitchen models they have. Once home we headed out to eat dinner then off to Target for the promised items. Pure glee from the kids as they got to pick out their prizes...and then pure melt downs when we get home at ten and they can't play with 'em because it was way past bed time.
So here we are Sunday, I actually cooked breakfast, cooked that's right, mark it down. K and N packed up and headed out, and we all took a nice long nap since I'm not the only one with the allergy attack now. It's snot and sore throats all around at my house...and the worst part is that it's the most beautiful day ever. Perfect temps, not a cloud in the sky and the wind is blowing just right. Husband is "fixing" or more like grunting cuss words at his bike in the garage, Neely is riding her loud scooter, and her bike on the driveway, and I'm enjoying the fresh air. This is one of those days we wish we lived closer to a nice lake, or when I should be using my not doing anything else time to craft and create, but sometimes you just need a break. Besides, there's laundry to do!
