Question(s) Of The Week:
What’s your favorite way to spend the weekend?
I don't really have a favorite way to spend the weekend, but there are a few routines I've enjoyed, especially recently. Daniel has been up and out of bed well before 7 AM lately, and I am completely taking advantage of that. We usually have our grocery shopping done and the food put away before our girls are even out of bed. We can get straight to the other errands as soon as the libraries open at 10 AM. We are usually done with our weekend chores before lunch Saturday afternoon. I have LOVED that!
Well, the weekend is over since I am writing this late, but it was a good one. Saturday morning Daniel and two of our great friends helped me clean out my classroom of my personal furniture and belongings. We then spent the weekend reintegrating my classroom furniture into our home. It was like a huge shopping spree for our home!
Sunday we spent the afternoon with my mom, going to the local community college to see a planetarium show about the eclipse. We got to have dinner with my parents before coming home to wind down for the week ahead.
The other great part... the couple who helped us clean out my classroom took the girls for Friday and Saturday nights so Daniel and I were able to relax, make plans for the upcoming months, and to have all the time to emotionally prepare for the coming days. That was SUPER helpful! The girls had a great time with their girls, and Daniel and I were able to get the house in order without worrying. It's been a long, hard weekend, but I'm looking forward to this week.
On the weekends I really enjoy watching the television shows we've missed all week, catching up on reading, and just hanging out with my family. We've started a routine of going to my parents' house on Sundays for game time and dinner. It's a great way to connect and spend some time playing.
