The Weekend Re-Cap

Another Monday has come and (nearly) gone. I was super busy at work today, which wasn't so bad because it made the day go by quickly. If I have to do Mondays, I'm better with them going by fast rather than slowly. I didn't cook dinner for my parents today but I made a huge pan of lasagna last night, and even with me eating a piece for dinner, my boyfriend taking two pieces for lunch (and packing those same amounts for our lunches today), I decided to put some in a container for my parents for dinner. They can have some kind of veggies or salad or something with it. I won't be eating any since I had it for dinner last night and lunch today, but that's alright.

No workout today either... Which isn't good but isn't bad either. I have eaten at the low end of my calorie range so in terms of that aspect, I'm okay. I'm really missing my usual workouts but things have been SO busy lately. UGH. I feel like I'm making excuses but I'm not. I really have been using my spare time to go through things and pack... That in itself is a bit of a workout, but mostly it is time consuming.

My boyfriend had to work all day Saturday (BOO!!) so I babysat solo. Because of that we didn't do much Friday night - hung around and watched basketball; that was about it.  On Saturday I decided to take Little Miss to a town roughly an hour away from mine for some fun activities. I messaged my cousin who lives about an hour in the other direction to see if she wanted to meet up and it worked out so that we could, so we had some fun with them!

Little Miss was up and ready to roll when I got there around 6:45 on Saturday morning. I knew immediately that I was not going to be going back to bed with her or napping at all. We stopped by my parents' because when I drove by I saw that the TV was on. I thought maybe my dogs were there. Nope. My Dad or Mom thought we'd be spending most of the day there, I guess, and left it on.  So we stayed there for a little while and ate some toast for breakfast. We then picked up my dogs, got gas, and headed to my house. On the way there she said she was hungry so I stopped by McDonald's and got her some pancakes.  I got her set-up with breakfast and then we got ready for the day, and headed out.

First we made a stop at Hobby Lobby... I wanted to look at their furnishings but I didn't have time to really look to see what I thought I might buy. I picked up some tutu making supplies to make a superhero tutu for another cousin's daughter (and Little Miss too because as soon as she found out Haley would be getting one, she HAD to have one too) and that was about it for that trip. Then we went to meet my cousin Samantha, her husband, and her little boy at a place that is full of super fun inflatables to play on. We let the kids play there for about an hour (which went by SO fast!) before heading home. We could opt to purchase different lengths of time but they had a dinner that night and things to do at home, and we had to be home by a certain time (and I wanted to take her to lunch too). The kids had a great time running, jumping, climbing, and sliding. One of two of us grown-up ladies may have joined in on some of the fun!

After that, I took Little Miss over to Chuck E. Cheese's for lunch. Oh. My. Gosh. She. LOVED. It.  It was her first time there and she was amazed by all the games and rides. We played a couple games near our table while we waited for our pizza, and then ate, before walking around and doing more things. I could tell she was starting to get tired but she did really well! She mostly wanted to ride on every single little ride there was, which she did. Since kids earn tickets for little prizes, I had her play some of the games too. I wasn't gonna pay all that for nothing, so I figured she might as well get some cheap junk treasures to bring him. I also bought her a little Teddy Bear. So she got some candies, a spinning top, a whistle (stupid idea for a car ride home, but luckily she fell asleep!), and a little spider. After that we didn't have time to do any of the other things I wanted to do, which was fine. I hit the Starbucks for a drink and got her a cake pop and then we were on the road home. She slept most of the way home, but was still tired when we got back to my house.  We cuddled on the couch and watched some cartoons (Doc McStuffins) until her Mommy got there.

My boyfriend was home from work shortly after that so I didn't get time for a nap or anything. We hung out for a bit and then decided to go out for dinner to a bar/restaurant nearby.  We stayed there for an hour or so before heading home to watch basketball.  He fell asleep on the couch  and I did sometime after the game. When he woke up, he munched on some chips but never said he was going to bed...The little rat let me fall back asleep on the couch for a bit! Luckily I woke up a little while later and went to bed.

We didn't do much on Sunday. He asked about packing things and said he'd be fine with it but since he had worked Saturday, I just wanted to hang out. So we did. We were fairly lazy in the morning. I did do some laundry, a little cleaning, made a trip to the grocery store, and made dinner, but that was about it. We spent the afternoon watching basketball and just hanging around. After I cleaned up from dinner I packed our lunches and we continued to be lazy throughout the evening.  It was kind of nice to just spend the day relaxing. I think we both needed it after having been so busy on Saturday. I guess I thought that since he only got one day off this week, he should spend it relaxing. He did have to fix the toilet, but that didn't take long and wasn't all that stressful... I tube had come off and just had to be put back on. I'm actually the one who figured that out, but he had been trying to fix it before that...And he's the one who put it back together. I wouldn't have figured it out on my own, I'm sure... Like he said, "we make a great team." 

I really think that's true... In a variety of ways; all the ways that matter.  He definitely is my other half; the one who completes me.  It's amazing how we've wanted someone just like the other is and we've never really found it.  Now we get it... Now that we have found one another, it seems so easy. Sure, everyone has ups and downs and nothing in this life is perfect but this relationship is one that is unlike any other that either of us have been in. It's crazy how our paths ended up together - especially since we'd met several years ago but didn't really know one another. Who knew that not that far away was "the one." So funny how life works out... Obviously we were brought together at the right time, when we were supposed to.

Anyway... I suppose I ought to get moving. My Dad and I shopped for appliances for the new house after work so no workout today... Time to get a couple things done before Monday night date night. I laugh that I STILL call it that. We are together more often than not and we don't do anything, but I guess since it's been that way all along, Mondays will still be date nights to me (even if we generally just stay in and watch wrestling!).

I hope you had a fantastic weekend and that your week goes well!! I'm doing some more cleaning/packing/moving so I'm sure my updates will be similar to last week!
