How was your weekend? I hope you got together with loved ones, or visited someplace new, or someplace special. Maybe you got to work on a project that you have been waiting to get to. Perhaps you got some much needed rest time to take a nap, or read a good book. Whatever you did, I hope you enjoyed this past weekend. I got to do a lot of things.
Hubby got a chance to go to a men's lectureship weekend so he took off Thursday morning and didn't get back until Sunday night.
I quickly remembered what it was like to sleep without him home.
It brought back all those years when he worked nights as a police officer and I was home alone.
I didn't like it then.
I don't like it now.
Since I lose so many things, in fact, last time he was gone I lost the remote and had to leave the TV on since I couldn't find the "Off" switch on our then new TV. So this time hubby decided to help me keep track of the TV remote.
This is his version of a TV remote security system.
If you look closely behind August, you will the rope goes all the way across the back of the couch!
Yes, he has a sense of humor!! But it worked! I hid the rope the entire time he was gone!
He is so thoughtful. Unfortunately, the tv remote was not the thing I lost, (because I couldn't) it was the cordless phone! I would carry it around in case he called and then put it down, walk away and forget all about it. When the phone would ring I ran around the house yelling "Don't go to voice mail!" so that I could find the phone! I called hubby to tell him it was better to call my cell because I'm wearing that! He called the home phone instead, I know just to make me run around the house looking for it! He's funny that way!
I got to do some projects that I wanted to work on like painting the trim around the back slider, finish a book and begin another, sit on the deck in the sun and eat breakfast for all 3 meals! I love pancakes and eggs and bacon and stuffed French toast. So I got to eat them all!
I also played with the grand girls and boy were they a handful this time. Most of the time, hubby and I are together and we are tired when the girls leave but it is so much fun! This time I was solo and boy was I busy! After 3 changes of outfits on both girls and countless trips outside and inside they went home and I picked up the house and thanked God for such a blessing as 2 little girls as I collapsed on the couch.
I'm looking at a busy week this week so it was nice to have to have a weekend that was fun. I feel refreshed for the week before me-I know however to NOT say I am ready for the week because I know that Satan is ready to attack me as soon as I become too comfortable. I just feel refreshed -and that will do for now.
How was your weekend?
