The weekend that I never did get around to cleaning the house....

It was the first weekend in a while that we had that was calm & we didn't have much going on... a good thing really.  Much needed.  Poor Ricky had to work on Saturday but after that, it was a "we're not leaving the house unless it burns down" kinda thing...

but here's some highlights of the weekend

.... Got to talk to my sweet friend Friday on the phone. I called to just check on her after the loss of her dad... &we ended up talking for a little over 2 hours.  Oops.  I just love talking to her, catching up, laughing, crying, & hearing her advice that Ricky & I both value so dearly.

This is totally going to be us in a few years!!!

... When Ricky works, I usually get up with him & am then angry I'm up so early on a Saturday.  Not this day.  I totally didn't even hear him leave. I woke up at 8:00 surrounded by the dogs snoring away.  Sorry honey I didn't see you off, but it felt wonderful to sleep in.

... I had intentions of getting my house cleaned up while the hubs was working.  I nixed that idea & instead made a cup of caramel coffee & started my next book.  Sounds like a MUCH better plan then cleaning.

... I did manage to get in my 10K training mile before Ricky got home.  Building up the miles.  I haven't gotten in anything over a 5k since, well, I can't even remember when.  With my knee & my back, I'm taking things so slow, its ridiculous.  But I'm still enjoying just moving & getting miles in.  Even if it takes me longer then most. 

... Thank you Netflix for making 4.25 miles go back quickly.  Distraction is great.

... That whole "not leaving the house" thing I mentioned?  Ricky had it planned.  He brought home some pizzas on his way home from work so lunch & dinner was covered.  Those miles I ran helped the guilt of eating a day of pizza too.

... Ricky & I had a Arrow marathon.  We were about 5 episodes behind & got all caught up.  I just love that show.  Ricky loves The Flash better... not me.  Give me Oliver Queen any day.

... Ricky finally got a morning to rest so we missed church service.  I was glad he got the chance to relax a bit.  We did make it for Merge (Youth service).  I'm glad we did because we had a great crowd with 3 new visitors... & 2 of the other leaders were missing... & we had our Merge After Church (MAC) so I'm glad Ricky & I were there to help.  Plus, its just fun to hang out with these amazing kids.  They are up for anything... & they play HARD!  I always say if someone isn't bleeding, throwing up, or out of breath, then its not a good youth game.

... Ricky & I went down for our weekly Sunday Target stop & ran into our friends at 5 Guys.  I love when that happens.  An unexpected lunch date.

... Ricky spent $90 at Target & he's still not even sure what he bought.  He basically had 2 small bags.  How does stuff add up so quickly?

... I thought about cleaning when we got home but I decided to pull out my knitting & finish up a scarf/cowl thing I had been working on.  A much better use of my time.

... So excited Once Upon a Time is back on!!!!!

... Had to delay The Walking Dead for the Downton finale.  Oh my gosh.  I seriously was squealing in delight & clapping... (I won't spoil anything if you haven't seen it yet)... but Ricky came running from the other room thinking I was crying because I was upset about something.  No... that's the sound of happiness.  Now we probably have to wait another year for the next season. Sigh.

... I never did around to cleaning my house.  Dang it.

How was your weekend?


  1. sounds like a much needed weekend!! Ours was pretty quiet too. I am SO happy Once Upon a Time is back on and skyped it with my daughter! My other fav right now is back on....Madame Secretary! Sunday night TV is back!! :)

  2. Was SO excited to get to talk to you and Ricky. Couldn't believe it was over 2 hours!!!! Ha.... well.... like Mickey said, "Once you two get started..... " And don't worry about that housework, it will STILL be there waiting for you when you get around to it!

  3. We had a really quiet weekend, too. I did lots of cleaning and even more laundry, but never did get our bathrooms cleaned! I seriously would love someone to come clean my bathrooms and clean my floors every other week. How nice would that be?? I could handle the other stuff and the in-between.

  4. Sounds like you had a very nic weekend. It's okay that you didn't your housework done, it's not going anywhere! I really liked the Season Finale of Downton Abbey :)

  5. I definitely workout so I can eat what I want lol! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  6. I have a close friend that I talk to on the phone about once a month. We've been known to chat it up for 3-4 hours! Best times ever!

  7. Cleaning is over-rated anyway ;) I NEED to get caught up on Downton - I think I'm two seasons behind now. Hopefully they'll come to Netflix soon!

  8. "Ricky spent $90 at Target & he's still not even sure what he bought. He basically had 2 small bags." Welcome to my world, Ricky! WELCOME TO MY WORLD! lol

  9. Downton Abbey...*sigh* Not a disappointment at all.
    I was home for the better part of 2 weeks and didn't get my house clean.

  10. LOL ! I totally giggled at your post because pretty much the same thing happened over here : no cleaning up this weekend !

    I can't wait for Downton Abbey to air over here !

  11. That housework isn't going to go anywhere ... better to spend the weekend just resting/recuperating from all you've been through. Of course, I'm the queen of avoiding housework to do something more fun (for me, quilting), so I'm not very objective about a non-housework, stay-at-home kind of weekend. ;-)

  12. I'm a fan of doing pretty much anything but housework. So glad you managed a low key weekend.

  13. so bummed downton is over. it feels like the quickest season ever! glad y'all got a chance to relax.

  14. this sounds so much better than cleaning! Weekends like this are just needed sometimes!
