Low Key

That's just what this last weekend was overall. Not too exciting, mildly relaxing and low key.
Friday Nick and I ducked out of work early since we had had to work the Sunday previous.  I got the grocery shopping done and we didn't do much else.  I had crashed down some steps and I spent the evening sitting on an ice pack and watching a lovely bruiser develop on my lower left back. I was sore all weekend.
Saturday I picked up my mom and with the boys we headed to Ft. Collins and some excellent thrift store shopping. 50% off and at one $0.99 blue jeans made for a very economical outfitting of two small boys.  Although Turbo is not so small anymore. I was able to pick up several pairs of jeans for him to grow into. Mom and I had a great time.
Saturday evening Nick cooked dinner--sort of Mother's Day dinner for me.  Steaks on the grill and home fires and peas.  It was delicious.  And I didn't have to do the dishes. Turbo got a sore throat and wasn't feeling good after dinner.
Sunday Turbo woke up with a fever and sore throat still.  He was in lump on the couch mode for most of the day.  I hope he feels better soon.  He really doesn't want to miss the field trip this week for school.
Nick did take Bruiser out to garage and they made me a picture frame.  Bruiser still needs to paint it, but it is a cute frame and has his picture in it.
We had Nick's parents over for lunch Sunday too.  Nick's mom's birthday was Saturday and with mother's day, celebrating both at once was easiest.
Nick had his Archery thing Sunday evening, so I managed the kids.  Turbo was easy--he just rested on the couch.  Bruiser, well he skipped his nap and was in full on bear mode.  Cranky doesn't even begin to cover it. It was a relief to put him to bed.
While it wasn't an exciting weekend, it was nice.  How was your weekend?


  1. Sorry you fell; that's no fun. Our weekend was relatively uneventful too except for going to the pool. Good weather too!

  2. Ouch, sorry you fell! And I hope Turbo feels better soon!

  3. My kids were bears all weekend. I think the most relaxing part was actually coming to work Monday morning!
