This Is My Story And I’m Sticking To It

If you were to look through my day planner, you’d see anywhere from 1 to 4 things each day… some busier than others. Last week… Last week was like the day planner fairy opened up my planner and took a big dump on that week, closed the book, and jumped on it. Seriously, it felt like I was running a marathon where I could sleep at night, and then start over again the next morning. I was so ready for the weekend.

What better way to begin our weekend than dinner with friends. Sarah & Dave came over so that Jake & Maggie could entertain each other, and we headed to Trio, a yummy Italian restaurant, and met up with Carla & Jeff. I LOVE these people! Every get together with this group pretty much guarantees a lot of laughs, fun, and wonderful conversation. I’ve mentioned before that Carla is currently battling leukemia, so extra curricular activities in public have been limited for her. She is absolutely beautiful and cancer has definitely not dampened her humor. And Sarah… she very well may be the cutest pregnant woman EVER! It was so great to get to be able to enjoy an evening with amazing friends :).

It was our weekend without the kids, and while I’d like to be able to say that we were able to sleep in a little Saturday morning, kids soccer games prevented it. Ian’s game was at 8:30, and after checking online to make sure it was still on (which it was), I headed out to the field. Pretty much the time I pulled up is the time that the refs canceled the game. Maybe it was the fact that snow was completely covering the field? It would have been nice to know BEFORE I dragged my tired butt out of bed. On the upside, it meant that I could catch Riley’s game a few miles away. Grandma Gina (my mom) also joined us to cheer Riley on.

What great pictures we WOULD have had if I had remembered to put the memory card back in the camera. Hmmm. Well, we’ve got 7 more weeks to capture the moment.

Saturday afternoon we went to lunch at a place that was a first for us both. Pat’s BBQ. OK, I don’t know if I would say that this meal was life changing, but it was pretty damn close. SOOOOOOO good. During the meal, and between finger licks, I kept thinking about all of the people I wanted to bring to this out-of-the-way diner to share a little heaven on earth. If you’ve never eaten at Pat’s, DO!

The rest of the weekend was full of movies, games, and plenty of relaxation. Thanks for a great weekend to those who were a part of it!

    Pat’s BBQ! The best around here and just as good as the best elsewhere.

    I know! I’ve thought of it multiple times in the last 57 hours, which happens to be exactly the amount of time that has passed since I shoved that last bit o’ pork into my mouth. Mmmmm.
