Ok, so it's Wednesday and I am just now doing a weekend recap. Why? Because I had a 4 day weekend and it was awesome! Although, I am fully exhausted.
Friday: I took the day off of work and had a garage sale. Considering the fact I didn't advertise, the sale went over a lot better than expected. I couldn't have asked for more perfect weather either. It was nice and sunny, in the 80s. Low humidity. Absolutely perfect! The garage sale was open all day, so I finally shut it down at 6:30 and spent the rest of the night relaxing. Another great thing about the garage sale? I was able to finish one book and make a lot of headway on another!
Saturday: I opened my garage sale again for a few hours in the morning, but it rained, so that wasn't a very successful day. After getting all cleaned up, my mom and I went shopping to find her an outfit for my sister's wedding. We found two really great outfits. Then, my parents and I went out to dinner at the best restaurant in town and had the most amazing meal! My pork chop was at least 3 inches thick and cooked to perfection! Later that night, one neighbors' son's were shooting off so many of a certain firework, it sounded like they were declaring war on the neighborhood. I hate those that sound like cannons.
Sunday: I went to my cleaning job in the morning and ended up spending 3.5 hours there. That's alright though, because I get paid for it. However, it is very tiring work and I was ready for a nap when I got home. Instead though, it was a quick lunch, then cleanup from the sale, returning tables to my grandma, and planning out a basement organization system. This will require some very thought out plans. The neighbors invited us over for fireworks that night and we had a nice little visit.
Monday: The whole day was spent in St. Louis at the Cardinals game! Mr. P (you know, Mrs. P's husband), got free box seats from work and they were nice enough to invite me and a guest. My dad ended up going with me and we had a great day, even with Little A getting carsick on the way there. It's too bad the team couldn't win, but I'm not complaining. It was still fun and the seats and drinks were free! After a great fireworks show downtown, I tried to read some that night, but after such a busy weekend, I was simply too tired to focus. I think I read the same paragraph at least three times before shutting my book.
Now, it's back to work for a 4 day week. It will be a slightly busy one for me because I have 2 big projects that need to get done, so it should be pretty productive. Hopefully...
