This weekend was a blur. In fact, lately, the days just seem to be running together. Before we know it, Christmas will be here, then spring break and pool time once again.
I picked my little guy up from school Friday and we headed to Target (aka, the toy store) for some shopping. Mama needed groceries and Walker "needed" a toy. A new BeyBlade it was. I believe we now have 18 in our house. These things are just over-blinged, over-priced, crazy-named toy tops. Why didn't I think of this?
Yesterday we headed to Roxboro to see the family and celebrate my grandmother's birthday. After years and years of not really knowing what was causing her to lose her sense of smell and appetite, and not be able to swallow or smile, she was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's. They've put her on some meds and yesterday I saw her smile for the first time in quite a while. It was a great thing to see.
Then we visited with my dad a while at his house and Walker and his cousin Gavin rode four-wheelers with "Grandaddy Ray". Gavin decided to spend the night with us last night, but the boys were so tired, it wasn't much of a sleepover. And lucky me, even though we did get an extra hour last night, at 6:30 am this morning, the boys were jumping all over me and ready to play for the day.
Today was comprised of church, lunch at the mall, a visit to the playground, fort-building in the woods, a quick stop by the local thrift shop (scored a fabulous lamp), a little house-cleaning to get ready for the week and a trip to the grocery store! Whew!
This week should be much better than the last couple of weeks - I'm hoping to actually have some down time to write more here, so hold me to it!
I asked Walker tonight if he had a good weekend and he looked at me funny and said, "Mommie, why do people always ask that? Everyone asks me that at school on Mondays."
And I actually had to think about my answer before I responded. I wasn't absolutely sure myself, but I said, "Because weekends are supposed to be fun, and everyone wants to know you had a fun weekend."
And we certainly did have a fun one this weekend. Hope you did too!
