So it's Monday and time to talk about the past weekend (and dream about the next one! always!). It was a pretty eventful kind of weekend, and I did make myself a promise to take note of all the little things, especially those that do your heart so good.
Friday night we went out! Hello! We are parents. It is a big deal! Huge! The grandparents were out of town, so we got our most favorite babysitter, Miss Lexi, to come stay with the kids, while we went to drink some great wine and celebrate a friend's birthday.
Saturday was a lazy late morning for us, where Miss Annika and Mr. Leo slept till almost 9. Thank you, children.
That morning something absolutely incredible happened. Are you ready for this?
Here ya go... After about 5 weeks after the move we finally rid our garage of boxes. I think we can actually start parking in there. The secret to our success is dedication and hard work.
But no, it really was our wonderful Oma and Opa who came over to entertain the littles, so we could knock things out. That and the imaginary "looks" we got from neighbors for parking in our driveway for weeks and weeks. Imaginary, because our neighbors are much too nice to give us those looks. Instead, they bring us gifts for the babies, low-sugar blueberry pies and fresh vegetables from their gardens.
Yes, there are a couple of houses for sale on our street. Yes, you should move.
Saturday night we made healthy turkey burghers for dinner. They were... mm-mm good! Gotta trust the judgement of a 2-year-old who takes a bite, says "too spicy", and keeps eating like it's chocolate.
Sunday was even more glorious. I woke up at 7 and spent the morning on our deck, drinking coffee, reading and just enjoying the quiet. After a wonderful church service (held in a park) and a stupendous lunch, provided by the church, we all went over to our friends' house for brunch. Yes, brunch after lunch is a thing. It is a very delicious bacon/crepe/Nutella thing, totally worthy of a very late nap for a certain toddler.
And Sunday evening was spent on the lake. And I don't think I even need to continue.
The weekend was rejuvenating. This morning I didn't even get upset about getting up at 7 am to drive 40 minutes for an interpreting job, just to get there and find out one of the parties couldn't make it. (I rewarded myself with a trip to TJ Maxx, since childcare was set up already. Woot.)
Anywho... have a wonderful, fast week!
