Saturday’s like yesterday

I wish they were all like that…

We cleaned out some garage trash, went yard-saling, and then spent the entire day in the backyard and in the pool.

We only have a small, inflatable pool, but we have a ball. We plan to play all day again today, too. Temps are above 90°, so the water feels so good, ahh. It’s been a great weekend.

Cheers to lazy and hot summer weekends!

EOD Thoughts: 05.16.2021

These two-day weekends just aren’t cutting it. Time goes by too fast.

We didn’t do a whole lot today, but that is just the glory of Sundays. We played around the house in the morning and by 10 o’clock we headed outside to get some air before the rain came. The day turned out to be nicer than I had anticipated, which was a sweet surprise. At about eleven, I decided that burgers on the grill would really hit the spot. So I ran to town to grab some lettuce, a tomato, an onion, and some potato salad. Dylan grilled the burgers and we had an incredible lunch. We ate so much, we didn’t really eat too much the rest of the day.

The rain was supposed to come around 4, so we soaked up as much time outside as we could. When we came back in, it was naptime for Della… Dylan and I couldn’t resist either, so we all ended up taking about a two hour nap. When we all woke, we spent the evening not doing a whole lot at home.

It’s days like these that make me so thankful for the family that I have. We have moments where we’re all playing together and chasing each other around the house, and then there are other moments where Della is playing alone and contently with her toys, and Dylan and I are both off doing our own things as well. We mesh so well in our home to where we really do get the best of both worlds. I wouldn’t trade our lazy day Sundays for anything.

Della was sitting in my lap earlier today and I was thinking about how much I’m going to miss this someday. Someday she will be too big to fit on my lap, and our lazy day Sundays will change to days spent at home wondering if our teenage daughter is okay while she runs around with her friends. We won’t always be blessed with a full house, so I’m consciously trying to enjoy what I’ve got while I’ve got it.

This week seemed to fly by. They all seem to fly by when it comes to Friday. Almost every single week I forget to take cash out for the babysitter. I go pick up Della and while I’m standing there I realize OH CRAP

And since we don’t live in the same town as the babysitter, I use the ATM there which means it charges me a $3 fee each time. I’ve probably racked up at least $15 in fees on that thing 🙄 Oh, that’s just THE WORST!! And you’d think I’d know by now because I pay her every Friday and almost ALWAYS forget.

So, yeah. That’s how my ends of the weeks go.

Tomorrow I’ve got drill and I have to actually show up to the office. I think it’s absolutely absurd. Most of the unit is doing some kind of virtual drill but I’m one of the few that actually have to go in. I threw a fit to four different people about not feeling safe going, but it’s the military so what can I do?

I guess it’ll be nice just to get out of the house for a drive. Got to look at the positives!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!!!
