The Weekend Wrap-up

So, it is Sunday evening, and I'm half watching my husband play Need for Speed. I know he knows I wanted to watch the last "Surreal Life" and "Strange Love Reunion" tonight, but oh well, I'm sure I can catch those again during the week.

Anyway, let's sum up the weekend. On Friday two of my nieces spent the night. My husband's sister and her husband were going away for the night, and had asked if we'd babysit. I had no problem with this, those girls are very well behaved AND I like their parents. (That makes a difference!) So, my husband gets home with the girls and I have to run out to the store. My daughter is on antibiotics again; she can't be sick when she gets those tubes. I hustled out to get the scrip, and while I was at Kroger I picked up some pizzas and popcorn. Well! Who did I run into at checkout? The Pastor's wife! For a split second I wondered "Do I just blow this off or say hello?" I said hello and what not, all the while thinking what a schmuck I am. We have become what I call "fair weather Christians," in that lately we've only been hitting church on those major holidays. I don't like doing that, but when the kids are sick, my husband is out of town, so on and so on... I'll have to talk about church later.

SO! I race back home to get the pizzas going, the kids are playing. The girls are ages 7 and 4, so my son, who is 5 1/2 had a blast. They had a slumber party of sorts in the living room that night, and my 19 month old daughter was just so wanting to be with the big kids that she crawled over the gate to get to them. We've since had to take said gate down. And she tried crawling out of her crib. Little stinker.

Saturday morning came very early, but we got up and fed all four kids. It wasn't bad, I didn't mind watching the girls, but I think they got bored. It was raining and I think we were all tired out. My son fell asleep in the middle of the living room when my sister- and brother-in-law came to get their kids. I was wiped out, we all were. Hopefully when summer gets here the girls can come out and play outside. I told them we could really camp out (we have two tents, why not?).

Today I colored my hair. "Red Penny." I'm not so sure I like it. It's been 9 years since I've had red hair; I went back to my natural color after I had my son. So this is a bit of a shock. My husband likes it, but I don't know. I had been getting "Light Reddish Brown" and liking it. I don't want to go too light or too dark. But I will admit, buying the hair color at Wal-Mart is so much cheaper, and I can afford to play around with the color now. I don't know, maybe auburn...

That's it, really boring huh? I got my son's lunch packed and his clothes laid out for school tomorrow. I get my hair cut too. Really exciting stuff here, don't you think?

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, and it is SNOWING. Yuck. My gosh, a few days ago we were running around in shorts...but my husband has poison ivy on his hands, feet, and legs. My throat is sore. Damn weather.
