Every Sunday evening, I find myself saying, “The weekend went by SO fast”. I think I said it more than once yesterday. Lately, I just do not want to go to work on Mondays. I'm not sure what it is. I love my job and my coworkers (well, most of them ;)). Maybe it's the busy weekends. Maybe it's that W is old enough to realize I'm gone during the day. Not sure, but I wish I could snap out of this funk.
I was listening to the radio on my way to work and someone mentioned that Halloween was this past Friday. It seems like Halloween was ages ago.
Anyway, enough of that. We had a great weekend. Friday, the weather was terrible. Very cold and we started off with snow. It remained cold, but at least the snow stopped. Nani took W downtown where the shops were having trick-or-treating and Halloween activities. W wore his fireman costume. He visited Papa at the bank and got his picture taken. It sounded like he had lots of fun and I’m happy he got lots of use out of that costume. J Also happy he enjoyed being a fireman MUCH better than a cow.
That smile... gosh, I love him.
Friday evening, I met A and W for pizza at The Silo. We hadn’t been there in years. It was W’s first trip. Our pizza was delicious and we had fun seeing other customers dressed in their Halloween costumes. Side note: maybe I’m just not fun, but I think it’s a little weird when adults dress up for Halloween. If they’re going to a Halloween party then fine, but to dress up just for Halloween seems odd to me.
Saturday, it was my turn to take W to school. I tried to convince him to play with more than the trucks, the rocking chair, and sandbox, but he just wasn’t interested in crafts or play dough. So be it. He knows what he likes. J Afterwards, we met A for soup and salad at Sweet Tomatoes. I love taking W there because it’s healthy and he eats for free! Win win! I’m also shocked that A doesn’t mind going there – he is NOT a soup and salad kinda guy.
Saturday night was the auction. The event was at a nearby country club this year – so much nicer than years past. The turnout was great despite a recent teacher strike and tension among the community. It was really nice to see people coming together to support the students. Also worth noting: jeans are NOT acceptable at a country club. Just saying. Anyway, there were a couple silly comments that made me roll my eyes, “you’re not going to have the baby tonight are you?”. Umm baby would be very premature if that happened so let’s hope not. I bid on a few items, but did not win. Fine by me – I didn’t have to spend any money that way. J Grandma G won a blanket for baby #2. By the end of the night, I was exhausted. My feet hurt and my back ached. But otherwise, it was a great night.
