What a long, strange weekend...

Well, not really. The weekend never seems long enough for all I SHOULD get done... Like the taxes. I just have no desire to deal with them - even though I KNOW we need the money... Anywho - the majority of Saturday afternoon/evening was spent goofing off with the kids so that I only got 1 LO done...

Then on Sunday, as I posted yesterday, we lost our power for about 9.25 hrs. It was really odd 'cause I was cooking lunch on the stove (electric range). I turned the burner off, and walked across the kitchen to get some shredded cheese out of the fridge - to find no power! Wierd... Thanks heavens I had finished my ADSR LO, and gotten it uploaded prior to the power outage, or I would have been disqualified...

LO completes the ADSR3 #4 Challenge.

And, then there's yesterday... I woke up with another massive headache that just didn't want to end. I was up for a little over 2.5hrs, and laid back down to take a nap. (Don't worry-Dad was here for the kids.) I woke up 3 hrs later to no headache - just those small nagging pains that flirt around an edge of a headache. We had lunch, and watched Unaccompanied Minors - another good movie btw. I was still feeling loagy though, and had just started a LO when Mike walked through the door an hr early from work. So I only got 1 LO done yesterday as well...

From there I sat down with the kids at 8pm to watch Brother Bear as a way of getting them ready to fall asleep... They REALLY don't wind down at night. I was a little surprised because they both laid there to watch it without getting up and running in circles the way they normally do when a movie is put on...

Now, I did START another LO last night, but didn't get a chance to finish it. So,... I need to go do that before I have to do dishes, take a shower, and run out the door for work! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Glad you're feeling better, and isn't it great that somebody was there to help you when you needed it! Love your LO's as always. Know what's sad? Our tax money is already gone. I'd gladly sit down and do the taxes every day for that again!

What a weekend! I'm sorry you ended up with another headache. :( Your LO's are GREAT! I especially love the Pieces of me and the beautiful wintery/ice pic LO. I really don't mind winter but I absolutely LOVE the beauty of it all. That is the one thing that I have been able to enjoy alittle more of this winter now that I am back to work. There have been several mornings driving into work that it has been so amazing. The ice covered trees with the morning sun....BEAUTIFUL! I hope the rest of your week is good. The weather looks like it is going to be ok *fingers crossed* LOL. Oh and thanks for the tip on Arsenal St!! I was actually hoping to get up there this weekend. That street is going to be so nice once it is all finished.
