Busy Times

This might get long so I apologize in advance.  This is how my weekend went...starting with Friday afternoon.

I made a bikini wax appointment for 3:45 on Friday at the local place that I can walk to.  I split my lunch hour in 2 parts to accommodate this appointment.  I got there on time and was told she was running a few minutes late.  I am supposed to leave work at 4:30 so I thought that this would be no problem.  I waited until 4:02 and then had to leave.  I still had a couple of other things to do before I got off work.  On my way back to my building I called the salon in my town and was lucky enough to get a 9:00am appointment.

Saturday morning I rushed to get to the salon by 9:00 (I was snuggling with my honey) in the rain.  They couldn't find me on the schedule.  Someone put me in for the next Saturday.  So they asked if I could come back at 11:00.  No problem.  I rushed to the bank then rushed to the grocery store.  When I shop for things I don't normally buy it takes longer to find everything.  I rushed home, unloaded and put away all the groceries and rushed back to the salon.  I got my wax and was on my way.  Then it was home to eat breakfast with my family.  I rushed through my meal and started cleaning.  We were supposed to have BJ's sister and her family over for dinner.  They have respiratory issues so whenever they come over I try really hard to make it a very clean environment more than just my regular cleaning on Saturday morning.  I start cleaning and send the Little Guy off to clean his bathroom and BJ decides it's time to put up the office curtains (which look awesome, BTW).  By the time everything is cleaned and hung, it's almost time for lunch.  As I'm starting to prepare the lasagna (so that I can just pop it in the oven when we get home) BJ is making sandwiches for us.  We eat and then I finish with the lasagna and cover it and set it in the oven.  By that time, it's time to go to the basketball game.  The Little Guy was burned by his cousin on a couple of plays but his team ended up winning so it was all good.  They all came over and we had a lovely dinner and visit (there's more to share but it will have to be in another post) and they left around 9:00.  I was D.O.N.E. by that time.

Sunday morning was less hectic but then things picked up again.  We went to 5 Guys for "brunch" and then made a stop at the store for a few things.  The hockey game came on at 12:30 and I watched the first period on the couch.  After that it was time to start the prep of our superbowl food.  We had chili dogs, a nacho casserole, Asian chicken wings, onion dip, fruit dip and strawberries, salsa and chips and I baked cookies for dessert.  People started showing up at 5:00!  I was still making food so it was a little stressful.  By the time the last couple showed up (3 couples and 2 children in all came to our party) it was time to eat.  So we ate and then I cleaned up and got the dessert out and we watched a great game and some really cool commercials and then everyone finally left at 10:15.  I still had a little cleaning up to do and then the LG had to get in bed.  BJ and I sat on the couch for about 15 minutes and then finally headed to bed at 11:00.  The party was a big success and everyone enjoyed themselves.  There wasn't too much "baby" talk from the pregnant neighbor so that was good, too.

BJ told the trip neighbors that we aren't able to go right now.  There are just too many things up in the air and we really want a pool to enjoy all the time.  They were bummed but they understand...and they are still going so it's not like they don't get to go either.

I haven't had a weekend that busy in a long time. I wish the superbowl was on Saturday or Presidents Day weekend so that we could have Monday off. Ugh, I'm tired.
