I had a fabulous weekend. When I was getting groceries on Saturday the guy who was taking my groceries out asked, “Do you have plans for the weekend?” The tone he had was a little bit of an assumption of sadness if I didn’t. I happily said “NO…No plans at all and I couldn’t be happier!” I so needed a no plans weekend….some time to catch up do a little on nothing..and a little of something all in a weekend. I had no commitments to anyone or anything. In my busy life a day or two like that is PERFECT!!
My fun actually started on Friday. I had a smaller group of kiddos for childcare which was good as Connie stopped by….
I remembered to take a picture but it was a horrible one!! The sun was in our eyes!! I did get a nice one of Connie.
She was stopping on the way to her daughter’s house. I’m a nice stop in between. The other Friday news…. my furniture FINALLY came. (more on that in another post)
I didn’t want to spend all of my weekend shopping and there were a few things I wanted in a “bigger” town so I made plans to go to Waterloo after childcare. I told Kelli about it and she asked if I minded if her and Georgie came with. Not a bit did I mind. I did warn her that it might end up being a late night though, and it was.
First we hit up Hobby Lobby and then it was onto the At Home store. Georgie was perfect…not a single squeak!!
You might remember that book, “Everything I needed to learn, I learned in Kindergarten”….well Kelli and I decided that Hobby Lobby and At Home had some pretty good advice on living life….like this sign in the Fall section….
Kelli loved the sign below.
I took this sign to heart. I sure am trying to grow through this all!!
This one was a little too close to home for me. Kramer used to tease me about all the things he “taught” me…how to drink beer…how to drive a stick…how to run a sander…how to do all the fix it jobs…
I wiped a tear, turned around and saw this sign. Bahahaha. I was time to be happy.
This one made me pause and think. I couldn’t help but think of Kramer’s sister’s family. Their daughter who is the same age as our Kalissa found out she has Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and they are starting their personal journey through cancer.
May healing be possible for her!
Another good one…
Then there was this sign… Continue reading
