As you know, hubby works a full-time job and he’s been in full-time school since January. Since that started, he hasn’t had a single day off. It’s either been work, school, or both. Well, his Spring Break was this week – I guess it technically still is Spring Break, but he works Saturday and Sunday, so yesterday and today were like a real weekend for us! Two whole days off, seriously amazing stuff right there.
Brother-in-law got us back on Thursday for having watched his little guy for him a month or so ago. We were able to drive to a bigger town (still a small podunk town, but let me have this moment!) to catch a movie and eat a nice dinner, all without having to take our little guy to the potty, hold his hand to cross the street, or shush him when he got a little too loud. Movie AND dinner! We even stopped at the store on the way home and picked up a few things for the house in a peaceful, slow, hand-holding manner. 🙂
Then today, we got some shit done! We worked a lot on our back yard, picked up all sorsta toys and broken bits and pieces that our big-dumb-dog had torn up and strewn across the lawn all winter long. Got an automatic timer guy for our sprinklers and actually set it up. Fertilized the lawn, re-seeded some spots that we screwed up last year, and ground-cleared the weeds. Cleaned out the stuff drawer, the important stuff drawer, the Doodle stuff drawer, and the craft stuff cabinet. And organized the coat/shoe closet, the catch-all thing on our counter, and above the fridge.
And then, because apparently we can accomplish A TON on a single day off, we even had time to go fly a super awesome Spider-Man kite at the park.
Oh! And I even started on that uterus!
All in all, amazing Spring Break weekend.
