Spring Break!

Standard

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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,ย and ground-cleared the weeds.ย 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.

It's a super awesome Spider-Man kite, don't you think?

As Doodle and I were flying the kite, Jake was super awesome and actually took pictures of me!  :)

Oh! And I even started on that uterus!

    • Thanks! I do love it! It’s really nice that we were able to get so much done and still have tons of time to enjoy each other – mainly I’m super proud that we actually got the sprinkler thing set up. We’re NOTORIOUS for getting things or starting plans for things, super awesome amazing things, and then never actually getting around to it. Totally impressed with my hubby and me right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Kites are AMAZING. We were just at the park a couple weekends ago and a lot of people were flying them. I had forgotten how utterly cool it is to see them take flight. What a great weekend y’all had! Doodle is adorbs, as always.
