Manic Weekend

I’ve sat in front of the computer screen for the last few nights ready to type up an entry for the blog and have just not had the energy to follow-through. I also haven’t had much inspiration to write anything that wasn’t “blah”.

The reason for this was that we just finished off another crazy weekend after another crazy and somewhat frustrating week. There’s been a ton of running back and forth and not a whole lot of sleep and rest.

We were up at the school at 7:30AM on Saturday for Sara’s science Olympiad. I watched helplessly as $45 flew into the gas tank. We were behind on the grocery shopping and had to get all of that done.


We had part of the family over for lunch today and worked desperately to catch up on the DVR. We also managed to find time to sneak in some Steak & Shake.


We even spent some bonding time with the new dog in the family. You’ll just have to trust me when I tell you that the rest of her is under that couch.


I wish there were a couple of more days in the weekend. I also wish we hadn’t wasted an hour sitting through Saturday Night Live from last night on the DVR. It was terrible!

We rush and rush and always end up right back at Monday morning. I’m thinking that I need to turn in some vacation time soon and just decompress.

In other news, I signed back up to Foursquare. I don’t know why I did it. I used it for a bit last year and deleted the account. Lately I started missing all of the great coupons I got on there and I wanted to have a little record of all of the places we end up going. It’s sort of a mini-blog of sorts. It will help me look back on the blurs that are my days and remember where all we were.

8 hours and 45 minutes until I get up for work. I better shut this laptop off.

As Jackson Browne sang:

Gonna pack my lunch in the morning
And go to work each day
And when the evening rolls around
I'll go on home and lay my body down
And when the morning light comes streaming in
I'll get up and do it again
Say it again
