Who’s running on empty……me or the car……BOTH! It has been a crazy weekend….in addition to the constant driving for my job this past week, both Pat and I logged some serious miles this weekend…..I don’t even want to think about how much money we have spent on gas this week alone!
Early Saturday morning, Pat left for Buffalo, NY to go to a wedding…..friend of the family….I was a little bummed that I didn’t get to go since his entire family was going to be there and we don’t get to spend that much time with them, but since the kids were not invited, we thought it was best that I stay home.
While Pat was driving to Buffalo, I packed up both Nick and Sarah to meet my Aunt in Connecticut. Nick is going to spend the week with his cousin in Rhode Island, so we met half way in Darien, CT. We all ate lunch together and then Sarah and I got back in the car to make the trek back home…..I have to admit, I was a little nervous making the trip home by myself with Sarah…..she does not like to be confined to the car seat, or anything else for that matter, for a very long period of time. She was a total trooper…..Elmo once again saved the day, thanks to the portable DVD Player, Sarah was content for the entire ride….what would we do without technology!
By the time Sunday came around, I was dead on my feet…..still had to do the grocery shopping, laundry and cleaning….I dread going to the grocery store on the weekend….especially when I have to take Sarah along….it is never a quick trip in and out.
Now the countdown is on….in just 4 days we are having our 4th of July picnic…… we have somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 people coming………I am starting to panic a little….I have a lot to do yet……but hey…at least Pat has the entertainment under control…..so now I need to add…..hire a paramedic and the fire department to make sure no one gets hurt, to my long list of things to do!
I need to pick up the pace and find some energy quickly…..oh yeah, and please pray for sunshine….I will even take a cloudy day, but please, please, please, no rain!
Although we spent a lot of time in the car, we did squeeze in some playtime too! I got these photos Sunday afternoon….I am still playing around with some of the photo editing software…..I know they are not perfect, but I thought I would share them anyway. This was the hat that I just had to have on our last shopping spree…..so glad we bought it
