As an unspoken rule of late (code for since Mark has been in the crazy job) we try to manage pretty low-key weekends.
Mark and I spend a few hours each morning having coffee while we pay no mind to our cherubs. This means they watch TV (Audrey) or play video games (the.rest.of.the.heathens.) to their little-hearts-content.
We always manage a nice breakfast together and then we typically spend the rest of the time doing things that we like to do around the house.
I took the girls swimming yesterday.
Mark took the big kids to see the movie 42.
Isabella had a fancy girl scout function this afternoon.
Will complained, procrastinated, and had several temper-tantrums about doing his homework.
Really. And. Truly. He is only smiling in this photo because he knew how ridiculous he was being.
I used a saw for the first time ever. I know it looks awful. It won't matter in the end.
Then I stained...in my ghetto workshop. Who uses garbage cans and planters to hold their handiwork anyway?
Yes...that is in fact a heater. It is there because (as I have mentioned more than once) it is still freezing here AND it is trying to aid in speeding up my project's drying time.
Mark and I managed to enjoy a relaxing evening out to dinner last night at a fancy martini bar in Watertown of all places!
We enjoyed a walk (or ride on scooters) around the neighborhood.
And finally, Audrey announced that she is now collecting both rocks and sticks for her respective collections. Lucky me.
A deliciously slow weekend with the family. It makes upcoming weeks like we are facing much more manageable.
Mark leaves in the morning for another 'field-trip'.
Destination: The hills of northern New York. Pretty much...Canada.
Duration: 10 days
Weather forecast: Mild. Windy. Cold. Wet. Stormy. Colder.
Side note: If you are considering a new occupation, I wouldn't recommended joining the Army. That is, if you like standard creature comforts.
