A better weekend! A quick recap:
Saturday I did some stuff, then in the afternoon I went to see Youngest. We just talked for an hour or two, then his mother-in-law came by, and we started talking. I saw youngest tune out our chatter while doing something on his phone. He could have gone outside and worked on the project he was doing when I got there as he knows we would mind. But he stayed. Then I was telling the other mom that Wizard and I considered moving to another town. And suddenly youngest was back in the conversation with, “That’s a terrible idea!” I looked up at him. “Because we’d live farther away from you?” He answered yes and made my day It’s nice to hear. We sometimes go a couple weeks without talking just because life gets busy, but we always know the other is close by.
Saturday evening Wizard went racing. I really enjoyed being home alone with music blaring and cooking an easy, new to me recipe for Broccoli Spaghetti. I know it sounds weird but it’s basically pasta and broccoli in a parmesan sauce and I added fresh lemon. I ate two helpings, which is amazing since lately I’ve been forced to eat smaller meals due to a cranky stomach. I loved it. And I was glad I did something just for me.
Sunday we went to see Turbo and had a great time! We went to his swimming lessons which was a lot more fun that it sounds. Afterward I hugged Turbo and told him he did so good. He nodded and informed me that he knew he did “Sooo good” with total confidence. I really want some of that four-year-old confidence! But I was really proud of how well he listened and followed instructions. I also made a cookie dough that needs to sit in the fridge over night. I’ll make the second one today and probably bake both batches today for a small gathering tomorrow when we see Wizard’s uncle.
It was just a better weekend because Wizard and I found ways to be productive and busy around our half packed house
How was your weekend?
