In a rare blessing of the calendar, I didn't have anything planned for the whole weekend. Whoo hoo!
On Friday, I had to work late, making up time for a doctor's appointment I had had earlier in the week (more on that tomorrow). But it was a good day. Almost all the managers were gone, having started their holiday weekend even earlier than the rest of us, and it's always easier to work when managers aren't breathing down your neck. There were tons of snacks in the office (we always do a snack potluck when the managers are gone), And Bonus! The company hired one of my besties! She's been trying to get on with the company for over 2 years, and they finally offered her a job on Friday! She starts Sept 15th.
I came home late, but there was pizza waiting for me, and the kids had already taken showers. We settled down to watch the Lego Movie and then called it a night. We are party animals.
The Agent worked on Saturday until noon, so the kids and I went to Costco in the morning. After The Agent came home, our plan was to spend the afternoon at the pool, but when we got there, we found this sign:
Bummer! And it was wicked hot this weekend!
Disappointed, we went home and were forced to be lazy. I finished reading Dark Places, Bug read one of her 8 million Magic Treehouse books, and The Agent and BK hosed each other down outside.
After dinner, we played a cutthroat round of Hedbanz. Have you ever played? Let me tell you, I am terrible at this game. Not at the guessing part, I can usually guess the card that's on my forehead. It's answering the questions that trips me up. And it always seems to be The Agent's card that causes me the most difficulty.
His card is a balloon-- Is it hard or soft? Ummm.... neither?
His card is a helicopter--- does it have walls? Ummmm.... I guess?
His card is a crab-- does it have teeth? Does it breath underwater? Does it lay eggs? I really couldn't tell you.
His card is a feather-- is it alive? No. Was it EVER alive? I don't know, was it?
Needless to say, The Agent did not win this round. Not that we keep score.
On Sunday, The Agent went salmon fishing for the day and I once again ignored the laundry and took the kids to Chuck E Cheese. We needed a little fun. :)
Then we went to Wal Mart, where we bought nothing special, just groceries for the week. We also went to Jo-Ann's, where I spent as much there as I did on groceries for the whole week (and again, bought nothing special). While we were at Jo-Ann's, Bug found this card over by the picture frames:
She loved that she found it! She put over by the glass vases for someone else to find.
By the time all that was done, I needed a break! So I sent the kids up to their rooms "to rest" for an hour, while I played on the internet. When they woke up, we make a batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, just because.
Meanwhile, this is what The Agent was doing:
So, we all had a nice weekend, and we still have one more day off! Enjoy your Labor Day!
