Its Monday... & I'm not going to complain.
I got called for Jury Duty today... but called to confirm the date & got the message that it was canceled & I didnt have to report. So, its Monday & I'm back at work.. & I'll take it. I'd rather take a Monday at work than a Monday at Jury Duty.
Note to self - there is ALWAYS something worse that can happen in every situation! Amen? Amen!
So the weekend... it was a weird weekend.
Let's just say that I'm someone who likes to know what is happening.
I live by a schedule.
I want to know what a day is going to look like.
I legit will wake up on weekends & before we even get out of bed, I'm like, "Ricky,what is the plan for the day? What do you need to do? Do you have anywhere you need to go?" ... & that's for a day that is empty. When my day has photo sessions or things scheduled, I'm even more anal about things.
I have issues... I have never denied that one bit.
But, I went into Friday with plans for every day. Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Lots of plans. A busy weekend.
So tell me how messed up my world was when EVERY SINGLE THING got changed & my weekend ended up with hardly anything planned & everything was just up in the air.
All my appointments got switched around, & then canceled & it was just confusing....
But it actually ended up working so well on my end.
Friday, we were supposed to go to a small group meeting but Ricky had some things come up where he wasn't going to be able to make it & I went to the grocery after work & got super delayed... so we ended up just going to Starbucks to start off the weekend right.
|Salted Caramel Frap... OH MY GOODNESS... DELICIOUS!!!|
Ricky was exhausted, bless his heart, & went to bed & I went into super edit mode. Like DONT TALK TO ME mode. It's a good thing Ricky went to bed. I just was focused on the computer & getting this last wedding done. My goal for weddings is to have all my pictures done within 2 weeks of a wedding...even though my contract gives me 6 weeks. I just know brides want their pictures & I aim to please.
So my Friday night? I was a wild & crazy gal... staying up past midnight editing. A full 5 hours of not moving from my seat. That's more exhausting than some could realize. I was glad for McFarland USA to bide my time... & Grey's Anatomy. (I'm so glad its back!!!)
By the time I got in bed, I made notes to Ricky that I was sleeping in & I had my 'talk' with the dogs to let me sleep. Don't think dogs dont understand... oh, they do.
Except Bruno always gives me the look of I DONT CARE - RUB MY BELLY at 7am.
Dang it. So much for sleeping in.
My Saturday appointment ended up switching around & I ended up using the day to be so super productive, it was almost scary.
The past 2 weeks of editing, my house has gone to scary-ville. Or gross-ville. Take your pick. So I ended up using Saturday to get life back in check. I think I may have heard my carpet say "THANK YOU" when I vacuumed it.
Ricky took the day to work super hard too by getting our drive way looking spiffy again. Poor guy... it was 94 degrees (Fall? Where are you?)... & he was so sun burned when he came in.
But after I clean my home, you basically can't do anything in it - at least for a few hours so I can enjoy the cleanness. Like, dont open a package & leave a crumb on the counter or I'm going to loose it. Or don't bring in a leaf on my freshly mopped floors. At least for a minute. PLLLEAASSEE!!!
So Ricky knew cooking was going to be pushing it when I just scrubbed my stainless steel sinks... so he headed to pick up some dinner. Such a good husband. I married a good man.
... while I stayed home sweeping up leaves that dogs STILL continued to drag in.
Its a loosing fight. Every fall.
I ended my Saturday though finishing reading Girl on a Train (Cant wait for the movie now) & then watched Mansfield Park.
... & can we just take a second to have an eye popping moment when I realized one of the guys in this movie was the dad from Downton Abby.... OH MY GOSH. Look at his head & that hair!!
Anyways... love a good time period movie.
& then, for some reason, I couldnt sleep so ended up watching another 3 episodes of Kimmy Schmidt. I honestly think this is one of my favorite shows.
About 1 am, I finally started to drift off.
& then Sunday.
Another day where I originally had 2 photo sessions going on... & both of them had to switch on me.
I think Nature was just messing with me at this point. But again, totally worked out OK for me.
I was able to ride with RIcky to church - which hardly EVER happens because I'm usually meeting someone after our MSM groups so it was great to actually BE with my husband as we went to church.
We went out for lunch afterwards & then ran into TJ Maxx. I found the cutest camera canvas & knew immediately I needed it.
I also found some sweater ponchos that I've been pinning on Pinterest. mmmm.... may not work for me. All the ones I tried on, Ricky gave me a look that said, NOOOOO!!! At least I've tried. I still think there's ONE out there that is going to be like Cinderella's slipper - the perfect fit. I did end up walking away with a GORGEOUS long sweater vest though.
But I got home & knew I wanted to clean up my office/knit room & reorganize it a bit... I'm so glad I did. I love how my wall turned out & love having it organized better now.
See, nature knew I needed this time cleared out so I could get my life back in order again.
& then blink, before you know it, the weekend is over... & I'm finally tired & ready for bed.
Because I have an even busier week planned ahead...
But maybe I need to learn that its OK if things DONT go as planned all the time.
How was your weekend?
Have busy plans?
Get lots of stuff done?
Do you love TJ Maxx?
