Ahh, I Needed That

We had a great weekend.  It was relaxing, fun and had some successes.  We were busy, but not so much that time flew by in a flash.  It was everything a weekend is supposed to be.
Friday afternoon we went and go family pictures taken.  We get to see them this Friday.  I think they will be quite nice. Then it was off home to muddle through dinner and the rest of the evening.
Saturday we hung out and got the chores going--I had laundry to start, groceries to buy, and vacuuming and such to do.  After Bruiser's nap we headed to the rec center and went swimming.  The boys had a blast.  We were there late enough that the time when they allow float tubes in the lazy river came up.  Turbo and Bruiser had so much fun floating around on the tubes.  I even went down the slide they have twice.
On our way home we stopped and had dinner and watched some of the football game.  Wyoming managed to win this one.  They found a team that is worse than we are.  Once home I had a friend come over and we watched the CMA awards that I had recorded.  We watch for the performances, to get a bit snarky about the dresses/clothes and skip what we don't care to watch.  We also polished off two bottles of wine in the process.  It was fun to hang out.
Sunday started out with a call from Bruiser to come help him.  I was still in bed so I got up and headed up stairs to see what he needed. I couldn't find him upstairs at first and called out where are you? "In the bathroom" was the response.  HE was indeed in the bathroom--he had pooped on the potty all by himself.  Hooray for Bruiser!  Small steps and all, I'm still cleaning him up but at least he's trying.
I finished laundry--it has no reason to whine at me, currently.  I also made another batch of salsa, two loaves of Pumpkin pie bread and made plans to have dinner with friends.  We headed out to their house once Bruiser got up from his nap.  We had put together a taco bar and you could make soft tacos or nachos with the toppings we had spread out.
With the time change, Sunday was very long.  Nick spent most of it cleaning and rearranging his garage.  He is way happy with the results of what he accomplished.
So, like I said, it was a good weekend, full but not too full, busy but not too busy, I guess it was a Goldilocks kind of weekend.  How was your weekend?  Too busy, too quick, or just right?

The way Sunday always feels LONG after DST changes is ridiculous. The kids are affected but they don't understand it; so weird!

I can't believe the CMAs were on a weeknight this year. Is that normal? I never watch the whole thing but I usually do watch some of it and this year, it was on at like 10pm our time, and on a Thursday! No way, Jose!
