how about another day off!?

Exhausted!  I didnt do a lot this weekend.. but I was busy.  I really cant even remember what I did on friday.  I had the day off..  but what did I do???    I know thursday night I went shopping with Jennifer.  Friday seems to have vanished out of my mind!  What ever it was, I remember being very tired at the end of the day.  oh.. I remember.  I babysat for Torry, violet and Scarlett in the morning, then went to a cottage work party for about an hour and a half and then went shopping with jennifer friday night..   not thursday night.  I have no clue what I did on thursday night then.  LOL!  (I am losing it!  lol!)   

Saturday I had plans of going to beach alone for the day.  I had picked up these magazines and a book  (oh.. thats what I did on thursday night..  I shopped on thursday too.. duh!)  anyways..  I was planning on packing some snacks and some drinks taking my beach chair and umbrella and hanging out on the beach for the day quietly alone.  but some little guy knows his grammie too well and he called me on saturday morning crying that he missed me.. (even though he had just seen me the day before! lol!)  and he wanted to come over.  I think he said.. "grammie will you come get me?"    I hemmed and hawed a bit, but then I thought..  there is no way I can say no to him! lol!   So soon I had a beach buddy for the day.  Hes very good for me so I dont mind taking him.  but the 5 trips to the bathroom got a little old!  and the carrying bucket after bucket of water was also tiring!  but a grammie does what a grammie has to do!  And he was getting much braver in the water, which meant I had to pay much closer attention! LOL!  so anyways..   I was totally exhausted by the end of the day.  took him home and then hubby and I went out to dinner.  


Then Sunday,  Booboo (thats grandpa in case you didnt know, thats what the kids call my husband) anyways  Booboo had cleaned out and refilled the kids pool on saturday, so I had said they could all come over on sunday to play.  And I also babysat for Marla and Lilly for the day.  I took them shopping (yes more shopping) in the morning with me and then everyone else was here when we got back.  The kids spent the day playing in the water and the pool.  Jen and I made pigs in the blankets for everyone for lunch and then afterwords, I made 9 chocolate milkshakes!  I took the girls home around 5:30.. came home and vegged out!  I was pooped out!  I didnt even make dinner.  I had popcorn about 8:30 last night and went to bed at 10:00!  early for me!  Now I need a day off just for myself!  lol! 
Today Im going to a training for the day on AMish and Mennonites.  that should be interesting.  But this week promises to be extremely busy as I am way behind at work and I have jury duty on wednesday.. fingers crossed that they wont need me and if they do, that it wont spill over into the week!  I have to call in on tuesday night...  we'll see what happens.  
Okeedokie that was my weekend.. now I have to get ready to go to work!  
happy Monday!

Sounds like you had a busy but fun few days:) I love beach time, alone or with a little busy friend! Have a blessed day dear Viv, HUGS!

You are the busiest grammie I know! Somewhere in those days you mentioned the comfort food and I ended up making a big bowl of homemade mac and cheese! Your days are filled with love and fun. Can't get better than that. Maggie

Well after a weekend like that, work will seem like a breeze! (Not really - I know how hard you work)

Sounds like you had a very busy weekend. I sometimes dread having my nieces and nephews over because it interferes with my plans of cleaning lol but I always make do and they are so fun. I always have to take a nap after they visit!

Reading about your weekend made me exhausted! I envy your energy! They grow up so quickly and I miss those days with little kids or little grand kids. You will relax soon enough someday but right now it isn't it grand to be loved and missed?

Viv, I get tired just reading your posts, lol. You sure do make the most of your weekends. I know you love those pies like crazy, but I hope you can sneak in a quiet beach day with your magazines soon. Your fault I'm thinking about a milkshake now. :)

I'm worn out just reading about it :). Although it does sound like you had a lot of fun. You and BooBoo are good grandparents. It's easy to see why they all want to hang out with you.
