Should be just another weekend. Game tonight with the boys. Cleaning and yard work on Saturday. Then a small occasion on Saturday. Then the kids actually have a full week of school next week. Should be nice, if not very relaxing.
The kids did not have school today, teacher work day. So Danny went over to a friends house, and Jimmy had 2 buddies spend the night at our house. Which makes me dread going home, because who knows what the house will look like? But that makes it easier tonight for our game, because they will have had lots of goofing off time and catching up, so they should be a little more settled for the game tonight (at least that’s my theory.)
Tomorrow we have to turn to, get the house and the yard cleaned up. Picking up trash, mowing, weed eating, all that fun stuff, that I have only partially completed the last couple of weekends. And Danny has his weekly appointment, and I hope to maybe take the kids to the pool if they are good and helpful when it comes to the cleaning. So I really need to be on my game as far as energetically cleaning and working.
Because we are hosting an event on Sunday. Lots of family coming over. I get to throw some meat on the grill, various other good foods. All of this so we can celebrate:
Happy Birthday Mom/Grandma Lolly!
This year is a little extra special because we get to celebrate on her actual birthday, which is not always the case. I am happy to host, and looking forward to it.
And as a side note, this is the last weekend without the distraction that is football. I think I am in a good headspace to avoid that as the distraction it is, or at least just leave it as background noise while doing other stuff. It remains to be seen of course, because the season will not really be on us until then.
