Lazy weekend

The weekend again.  Hooray.  Matthew came in at 6:30 this morning to give me a hug.  Uhm, thanks buddy, but couldn’t that have waited an hour or two? One of these days maybe the kids will actually get that I would like to sleep in on the weekends. LOL  

I went and got my blood work done on Thursday morning.  The nurse at my doctor’s office had said to allow up to two weeks for them to get the results and get back to me, so it may be a while before I hear anything.  I’m still improving as far as my throat and such, and am hopefully close to being completely over that part.  I’m still fairly tired, but that could have something to do with the paragraph above. :-b

I went out with a few women from my moms’ group last night – dinner, followed by a few hours of talk.  (Ok, I mostly just listened – those who only know me online would be very surprised at how quiet I am.)  It was a really nice evening, although the conversation made me really grateful for how lucky I have been, and seriously concerned for Kaylee’s future, as the topic turned to just awful stories of past abusive relationships.  I realized how fortunate I was to never have even come close to being in a situation like that.  I briefly dated a couple of guys who turned out to be ordinary everyday jerks, but nothing even in the same ballpark as these stories.

The rest of the weekend should be pretty relaxed.  Mark has a TAOM meeting tomorrow, but other than that, we have nothing planned.  Considering it was 82°F here on Thursday, it’s hard to believe it’s only 28°F right now.  It’s not supposed to get much warmer the rest of the weekend, and there’s a chance of freezing rain/ice. Sounds likes a good time to just cozy up at home, play games, and catch up on some stuff around the house.

For a minute, I really thought you'd reversed the numbers on your current temp reading. ;) That was our low at the beginning of this week...brrr! I think our lowest daytime HIGH - since I've lived here, anyway - is upper 40s.

Yeah, during the school week, I have to beg and plead w/ the kids to get up and ready for school. So why is it, on the weekends, that they manage to get up earlier than usual on JUST the two weekend days?

Hope you are feeling better soon.

I hope you continue to feel a little better every day, Kim!
My kids know to leave me alone on teh weekends- good thing DH is a morning person and gets up at the crack of dawn so that he can take care of things when I want to sleep in.

Oh, Kim ... I do hope you feel better with every passing day!

And as far as the kids and the weekend thing ... it's a note that is passed from infant to infant AT birth. The directions are simply: Cry, poop, eat, sleep (not necessarily in that order, and days that begin with S get less of "sleep" than any other day) Once school age, be sure to "sleep in" on those S days.

;o)

Oh, don't I understand about the weekend hug. If my DH is feeling generous, he'll run interference for me but that doesn't always happen. I hope you keep feeling better and they're either to dianose you or it just goes away!

We got an inch or snow of ice over the weekend in Central Arkansas - did y'all end up with any?

Sounds like a good weekend Kim.

LOL at Matthew wanting to give you a hug at 6.30. Oh well, the timing mioght be off,butt he intentions are surely a good start of the day ;-).

Btw I scraplifted your fair-princess-waiting-for-the-bus LO and it turned out COMPLETY different, as usual. But, I went and looked at your RAKscraps gallery to find it, and man, you have some GREAT new stuff posted there! You are so talented!
