How I spent my weekend

I’d like to pinch the person who scheduled all my daughter’s soccer games at 9:00 a.m. on Saturdays.  Do they not understand that I take Sleeping In very seriously?  And that my only Sleeping In day was Saturday?  Sad.

At least the downpour abated long enough for the game to be played.

When we got home, I cleaned two bathrooms.  I know!  It’s about time!

That afternoon, I spent some time with a friend who is a real estate agent and we examined my house and decided what needs to be improved before we attempt to sell it.  She has three grown boys and I always love the reassurance she offers.  She understands what it’s like for me now.  She knows why I just gave up and keep the boys’ clean clothes in baskets right here in the family room where I fold laundry.

I finished reading Mockingjay.  It’s always so sad to come to the end of a book (or series of books) that you really love.

This morning all six of us managed to get in the van on time for the drive to Mars Hill Ballard.  My poor husband had to drive through horrible rain.  (I played with my iPhone . . . but I felt sympathy.)

I noticed while in Seattle a number of people wearing flip-flops and carrying umbrellas.  Funny.

After church, I watched football until I fell asleep.  A stupid survey telephone call woke me.

So, I headed to Lowe’s to buy a few home improvement items.  Now my kids keep complaining that the light in the kitchen is weird.  That’s because I bought new fluorescent bulbs and covers for the fixture in there.  They were all used to the dim light.  I discovered one fixture is broken and needs to be replaced.

I am so boring that I am yawning through this entire post.

And so I apologize for the dull recitation.

Sometimes boring is good, though.  Considering the alternative and all.

  1. My weekend was a thrill-a-minute, too. I cleaned out under the kitchen sink and I don’t even have a CLUE the last time I did that. If the indication of how dusty all the lids were of all the cleaning supplies under there…it’s been a while. I even put down new shelf paper. Whoooooot.

    But I managed to finish a very good book and began a new one.

    Grocery shopped.

    I am right there with you when it comes to being exciting.

    Let’s start a club.


  2. We live in Edmonds and my daughter’s first soccer game this year required us to be on Capitol Hill at 8 a.m. I was hating life that day. At least they won.
