Weekend! This used to be a time that we would all look forward to with such anticipation. Well only if I happened to have the weekend off, that is. Working as a nurse for so many years I didn't always have weekends off. At the hospital I was off every third weekend. (and well paid for those that I had to work). And then during my nursing home years I worked every other weekend. We usually did something special on weekends. Took little road trips. Shopping trips. Walks in the park. You know, those kinds of things.
Now a weekend to me is just like every other day. Except the kids are home. Darian had a Boy Scout Camp-out this weekend. And it is probably a good thing. He came home from school on Friday with a broken cell phone screen.
Story is that he fell on it. I need more information but before we could get into it his ride came for the campout. Thanks goodness for phone insurance. (I guess) It still is costing me $99 to get a new one shipped to us. He has a lot of leaf raking in his future.
Harley and I went grocery shopping today. After visiting the Verizon store that is. Was a nice shopping trip. Hopefully I got everything I need to the next week. I have found the less I go to the grocery store the better I stick to my budget.
And then after we put the groceries away she and I went out to eat, rented the movie The Other Woman and spent a nice evening at home watching movies. We also watched The Devil Wears Prada. I am turning into a regular movie person after years of saying I wasn't really that into movies. It used to be that I couldn't make it to the middle of a movie without going to sleep. Now, since I can't seem to sleep at all, I make it all the way to the end.
Now I am finishing my evening writing on my blog and listening to Barbara and Blake.
