Off to a great start

March 18, 2012

I sit here with the house quiet. The hubby and pooch snoring away next to me on the couch. The kids in bed of to dreamland. I’m looking forward to the week… Spring break and lots of fun planned and no 6 AM wake-up calls.

But first a look back at the weekend. What a gorgeous weekend it was. Perfect, glorious Spring days in Florida. Lots of sunshine, slight breezes and happy kid faces.

Friday, we beat the heat by going to our club pool right after we got home from school. Middle daughter had her best friend to splash around with.  (Our own is still a little cold and we don’t have a heater. Yeah, I know, we are spoiled.)

While the girls were splashing around I was lounging on a pool chair with not a care in the world. The boys were off for a round of golf and judging by the big grins on their faces when they returned home, I’d say fun was had by all.

Middle daughter went for a sleep over at her besties and we enjoyed some burgers and wings in front of the TV. Every once in a while it’s a nice treat!

Saturday, the boys went off to a gun show so I had the morning to myself. Little one and I spent most of our alone time cleaning and straightening and preparing the corned beef and cabbage we had for dinner in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. By the time the boys returned from their trip the house was shiny and clean.

I snuck out for a little pampering and got a haircut. I feel like myself again. I don’t know why I keep getting it in my head I want to let my hair grow out. I love my short hair so much better and always feel so refreshed after a nice cut.

We enjoyed our dinner outside. Made a frozen yogurt run and capped of the day with our nightly walk with the pooches. The breeze was glorious and the skies gorgeous.

Sunday, same as usual, breakfast, getting everyone ready and then lunch with hubby’s grandma at her  club. After, a change or two, oil changes to be exact since my car showed an annoying little red light indicating it wanted some greasiness.

Off to the pool again, this time mommy took a dip, too and oh, that first swim of the year is always the best. A nice walk home, dinner cooked by hubby waiting for us, eaten outside again and after clean-up, dog walk and baths… Time for some relaxing.

It doesn’t get better than that, does it? Looking forward to all this week will bring even the addition of another year on this Earth for me.

    I wouldn’t argue with that weekend at all. Sounds wonderful! I know what you mean about growing hair out. It’s sooooo difficult, and I always just chop it off too.

      Ah, a kindred spirit. I really just need to get it trimmed regularly and maybe then I won’t always get the urge to grow it out!!!!
