the weekend is over?!

it's tuesday already. how did that happen? where did monday go? better yet, where did the weekend go?

there was so much that happened this weekend. birthday parties and football games and dealing with kids and shopping and traveling, everything was done in such a rush, it all left my head spinning. and being that it was very important to me to get the boys to school yesterday, we left jtown after the super bowl so we'd be home in the morning. which also means we didn't get home until 1am, and after unpacking and putting enough stuff away so i'd be able to function in the morning (like the pile of bags had to get off the kitchen table, and i had to dig out the tooth brushes), i didn't get to bed until 2am. it made for an extra tough monday morning.

yesterday was also spent finishing unpacking and washing clothes. fishie got a bunch of clothes for her birthday on sunday, which she desperately needed, but it created three times the amount of laundry to be done. i still have to find places to put it all, but i've left that to be done today.

i also did my grocery shopping yesterday, so there was some food in the house. usually i go shopping every two weeks, basically whenever hubby gets paid, and he got paid on friday. but being that friday was spent packing and preparing for the weekend, i had to put off food shopping. not that this mother hubbard's cupboards were bare, but if i hadn't done my shopping yesterday, i would have had to do it today, and i basically wanted to get as much done yesterday as i could.

though, as a result of running around like a chicken with my head cut off (lovely mental image, i know), i am wrecked today. and i still have to put all of the baby's clothes away. and go to a different store today than i went to yesterday, because i need to get soda. and i need to pick up some refills on lumpy's meds.

still, i think today will be more calm than yesterday, simply because some of the things i was worrying about and stressing over turned out to be nothing at all. and i'm making fried pork chops for dinner tonight, and fried pig product always brings a smile to my face.
